FRANKINCENSE AND OTHER ESSENTIAL OILS March 28, 2017 09:16
Samala talks about some of her favourite and most useful essential oils and essential oil blends...
Frankincense is considered a holy anointing oil in the Middle East, where it has been used for generations. It has a sweet, warm, balsamic aroma. Frankincense is a versatile essential oil that includes the naturally occurring constituent alpha-pinen. It can be useful in massage after activity, diffused during meditation for grounding purposes, and applied cosmetically to help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin. You'll also find Frankincense in several of our popular blends including Brain Power, Forgiveness, and Awaken.
Lemon essential oil has a pleasant, purifying citrus scent that makes it great for diffusing, and is renowned for its exceptional home cleaning and purifying abilities. Lemon Vitality dietary essential oil may be added to food and beverage recipes for a citrusy kick. It's a key ingredient in Thieves® Vitality, NingXia Red®, and Inner Defense™, and includes the powerful and naturally-occurring compound limonene.
Peppermint has a scent that's both uplifting and calming. Applied topically its cooling sensation makes it ideal for sports massage. One of the oldest and most highly regarded herbs for supporting normal digestion and gastrointestinal system comfort, no home should be without Peppermint Vitality - our dietary essential oil. Try adding a drop to herbal tea to help aid normal digestion. Or, place 2 drops of Peppermint Vitality on the tongue to support concentration and alertness.
Lavender has a sweet, floral aroma that is soothing and refreshing. Lavender’s aroma is great for relaxing and winding down before bedtime; add to bath or diffuse to create a calming and comforting environment. Lavender essential oil may complement your favorite shampoos, lotions and skin care products. Because it is the most versatile of all essential oils, no home should be without it.
