Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. Essential oils can be a great benefit this time of year to keep insects away, battle allergies, ease sore muscle pain, and to put a fresh floral scent into your home - naturally!
First for insects, we recommend a COMPLETE blend of oils Josiah's Insect Away includes essential oils of the rare species of Rose Geranium from South Africa known for tick repellency, Lemongrass, Citronella, Peppermint, Australian Tea Tree Oil, Australian Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Cedarwood, Cinnamon, & Lemon Eucalyptus Oils. You can add this blend to your diffuser, or place it in a spray to apply topically (always dilute for skin uses). It can be ordered in a Young Kids' Blend without peppermint and eucalyptus.
For seasonal allergies, we recommend a daily dose of local raw honey and our AH CHOO! Blend of oils. This blend was created after clinical research and contains the perfect ratio of Josiah's Oils of Lavender (Anti-Histimine), Cypress (calms respiratory irritation), Lemon (Anti-bacterial and Purifying), & Peppermint (Opens sinuses) (you may order without peppermint for younger children) in a pre-diluted roll-on with carrier oil OR concentrated! Diffuse or wear.
Gardening, biking, hiking.... in the spring can take its toll on muscles. We recommend Cool n' Hot Blend of pain relieving & anti-inflammatory essential oils of Sweet Birch, Peppermint, Copaiba, all perfectly blending in Organic Golden Jojoba Oil by our Clinical Aromatherapist to ease muscle and joint pain with a cool and warm tingly (but not overwhelming) sensation - naturally! Apply 2-3 times daily as needed for muscle pain.
Finally, bring spring inside with a Floral Essential Oils Blend for your diffuser! Lancaster Bouquet includes an array of florals, fresh citrus fruits to brighten up the scent and finally warm Ho Wood for deep relaxation. Dilute in a carrier oil and wear this as your favorite "perfume" alternative. Diffuse for a restful state of mind. Our create your own floral blend: 2 drops Palamrosa, 4 drops Lavender, 14 drops of Tangerine. Have fun and blend your florals with citrus to create your own unique scent!
