Our Essential oils come from the extraction of oils from many different plants and their varying parts. We use only certified pure therapeutic grade essential oils and we pride ourselves on using only ethically sourced oils where growers and producers are always paid fairly for their work and products.
Nearly all of the essential oils we use are derived from steam distillation although some are cold pressed such at the citrus oils which come from the rind of the fruit.
Some of the plant parts used for our oils are:
- Fruit (Rind)
All of our oils are of the highest quality available.
How do Essential Oils Work?
People tend to respond emotionally with the their sense of smell more than any other of our senses. This is partly because the area of the brain associated with smell (Olfaction) also is related to memories and emotions.
Our olfactory nerves are located in the nasal cavity and these send messages to the brain where both memory and emotions are processed and stored. This section of the brain is then connected to other parts of the brain (Pituitary gland & Hypothalmus), which triggers various chemical actions and reactions within our body.
As a result of the connection between the olfactory nerves and our brain’s limbic system the reaction to “Smell” is immediate.
All one miniscule, but very effective, chain reaction.
The variety of molecules within different essential oils causes differing “chain reactions” therefore various responses to each essential oil tap into a wide range of memories and emotional responses for each individual.
Essential oil blends can be used in many ways however our recommendations for our blends relate to Aromatic and Topical use only.
Aromatic – Roller Blends
A very simple way to gain immediate benefits from your oils is to simply “Sniff” them direct from your roller. Alternatively you can apply a little oil to the palm of your hand, rub your hand together to warm the oil then breathe from your cupped hands.
(Please be aware that some oils may irritate your eyes so best to try your oil with your eyes closed until you familiarise yourself with each blend and your response to it.)
A quick sniff of your oil should give you a quick response in those times of need… a buzz of energy from “Zest”, a lift of happy feelings in “Joy”, a calming, focusing moment with “Hush” etc..
Topical – Roller Blends
The quickest way for our bodies to absorb essential oils and disperse into our bloodstream is through the pores on the soles of our feet. As strange as this may seem, these pores are the largest therefore the most effective for absorbing and releasing into the bloodstream.
As well as applying to the soles of your feet it helpful to apply to the area the oils are working to address. For instance “Feels”, which helps to instill loving feelings, for self and others, can be applied to the area around your heart. All blends work well on pulse points also. Each of our blends has a recommended use for its specific properties.
Aromatic – Mists
Our Mists have been created for use “around” you. By “Spritzing” your immediate environment you will aid in cleansing and preparing your personal space or sacred space. This is particularly helpful as part of a routine. For example, you may choose to use your “Slumber” mist by spraying around your bedroom before you state your affirmation or visualization and apply your roller blend at night.
Whilst your would never use a full strength Essential oil blend on children or babies you may find benefit in Misting the bathroom lightly with “Slumber” whilst they have their night time bath to assist them with a sense of calm prior to sleep.
Topical – Mists
Mists are not intended for topical use, rather, for use in your surroundings. They create an environment conducive to the mood/feeling you wish to create. A light spray into the air will be dispersed easily and reach all in the near vicinity.
As you come to know our products you will come to understand what works best for you – we are each individuals with differing needs for cleansing, clearing and preparing our space.
Roller Blends and Mists
A large part of what we have developed for our products is a ritual to help you enhance the benefits of each specific blend and Mist. We believe the regular use within a process will enable our products to become more effective and beneficial to you.
