The Joy Of Using Essential Oils

You all asked for them; we finally have them. Essential Oils, that is. No doubt you’ve been hearing about essential oils from people who work as distributors of certain brands, but many of you may be wanting to know what to do with them. First of all, the essential oil is the most concentrated part of the plant, and can be used for aromatherapy and other routines used in skin and body care.

 

A few drops of oil on a cotton ball or other absorbent material can be instrumental for use in aromatherapy, inhaling the scent to initiate tranquility or revive vitality. Several drops in Jojoba oil can help create a body oil used for pain, inflammation, or other healing needs. Some oils are said to stimulate desire, and are used in “Love” potions.

 

If you think perfumes and fragrances are over the top, or if you’re allergic to them, keep in mind that commercial perfumes and fragrance have other chemicals in them for shelf life and wear life. Essential Oils, blended into a carrier oil can be a wonderful substitute, where you can enjoy the scent without warding off a whole room of people with a loud smell.

 

We have a variety of oils for your needs, and all are of the highest quality. If you still need some help in choosing the right oil and how to use it, we have a handy reference chart to help you out. If you like to experiment a little before you spend money on something you don’t need or like, we have testers, so you can sniff and apply a little on your skin to see how something smells on you.

 

Some of the oils we have are: Peppermint, Lavender, Vetiver, Neroli, Sandalwood, Lemongrass, Orange, Palmarosa, Geranium, Frankincense, Myrrh, and much more.

 

Consider adding essential oils to your toolbox for improved health.

 

Note: Any suggestions we give you are just that: suggestions. None of our oils, teas, or spices are meant to be used in place of sound medical advice from a physician or other healthcare specialty. If you have some concerns regarding a health issue, please consult a physician.

Cinnamon Orange, A Flirty Tasting Tea Blend

Hooray! We’ve just received a couple of our new teas, and couldn’t wait to taste one of the flavors right away. Though not a blend I might consider picking up in a store, the aroma wafting from the bag nearly bowled me over. Rich with the scents of citrus mixed with cinnamon, the blend blazed with strong colors of orange peel, hibiscus, and blackberry leaf.

When I first poured the tea, the taste hit my palate as rather light, not in accordance with the strong smell I first enjoyed. However, as the tea seeped for several minutes, the flavors came out of hiding and ran around screaming wildly on my tongue. As I finished the cup, the cinnamon came out stronger, and the orange became the aftertaste. By the way, I added some stevia for light sweetness, and this rounded out the whole taste experience for this tea.

If you purchase this particular blend, the rich aroma will take you by surprise. The addition of cinnamon and tangerine oils actually give this herbal mix a “wet” look, unlike most teas you’ll see. For fun, I actually sipped this from my gaucho gourd, using my bombilla straining straw. Yes, I do use my gourds for more than just yerba mate, but more on that later.

If you’re looking for a strong, yet not overbearing taste, the Orange Cinnamon blend may be for you.
