Essential Oils & Aromatherapy

History

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines aromatherapy as “the use of natural oils that have a pleasant smell to make a person feel better especially by rubbing the oils into the skin.” The use of essential oils for aromatherapy dates back over 6,000 year ago to Egyptian times, spreading quickly to Israel, Greece, and Rome. Throughout the entire Mediterranean region, essential oils were used in massages, burned in incense, and utilized as perfumes for their fragrant, energizing properties. Though the use of essential oils began to decline upon the arrival of modern science, a contemporary resurgence and enthusiasm has reignited the use of these naturally powerful oils.

Aromatherapeutic Flourish Calming Perfume

Each essential oil delivers its own fragrance and therapeutic benefit. HollyBeth designed her new Flourish Calming Perfume to evoke feelings of tranquility and reduce stress utilizing specific essential oils known to calm the senses (and smell great!).  The earthy, citrus perfume utilizes bergamot, cedarwood, and ylang ylang to ease stress and relieve anxiety, marjoram to combat fatigue, and rose geranium and chamomile to soothe and uplift the spirits. Simply apply the perfume to the skin via rollerball application, allow to dry, and inhale the aroma deeply. Voila! An instant mood boost.

Whether you’ve had a tiring day of traveling, a long day at work, or just want to smell something pleasing, revive your spirits with some of Mother Nature’s stress-relieving oils.

cedar wood essential oil

Cedar wood essential oil is woodsy, spicy and warm. Cedar trees in the US are native to the south. Cedar trees have significant religious implications from Christianity to Buddhism to the mummification properties of the ancient Egyptians. The cedars of Lebanon, referenced over 70 times in the Bible are now endangered. They were used to build ships by the Phoenicians and the temple of Jerusalem.  Propagation of the tree is challenging as they can only grow from females cones that can take 30 years to be produced.  They can grow to 30 ft. and live for 1,000 of years.  Cedar wood essential oil comes from juniper and cedar, mostly from the actual wood. Its properties include expectorant, antispasmodic, sedative, and as an astringent it is known to tighten pores. We have cedar wood essential oil in our marigold cleanser and flourish roll on perfume, it adds a lovely warm note.
