Awaken your senses and indulge yourself with our selection of pure essential oils, which not only enliven any room, but have many therapeutic properties. Our range of oils are sourced from the best quality growers around the world. Whether for aromatherapy uses, personal care or for household cleaning alternatives, you can benefit from using essential oils every day.
Essential oils are incredibly powerful and pure. When we inhale them, the odour molecules are thought to trigger a response within our nervous system that modulates hormone production throughout the body. When they are diluted in a carrier oil and massaged into the skin, they are absorbed into the blood stream and the active constituents can go to work in the various places in the body. Inhalation and topical application are the safest ways to use essential oils, due to their concentration.
There are many ways of using essential oils therapeutically, such as rosemary which is helpful for supporting memory and concentration for students. Lemongrass may be used for energising and revitalising mood. Peppermint oil might be of use when experiencing headaches. Popular lavender oil not only smells divine but has a soothing and calming effect on the nerves, relieving tension and supporting a good night’s sleep. Lemon essential oil is known for its cleansing and antibacterial properties.
Try a few drops mixed in a little bit of milk in your bath or add a few drops in an electric vaporiser to help you fall asleep smoothly. For personal care, you can make an natural face wash with an antibacterial essential oil or create your own homemade deodorant. For household uses, you can put together a ‘greener’ all-purpose cleaner using oil with disinfectant properties.
