How to use 'GOOD' essential oils...

As we move into uncertain times with COVID-19, I thought it would be good to talk to you about why we only use the highest premium quality essential oils in our products - give you a few insights to how beneficial essential oils are, in addition to boosting our wellbeing, sharpening our focus, and complementing our spiritual practices, essential oils can also be effective at cleansing & clearing the air.

While they shouldn't replace air filtering systems, they do have many antimicrobial and anti-fungal properties.  

We talked to the experts within wellbeing who guided us through why they have their go-to essential oils that give energising, uplifting fragrances and hold an antibacterial punch.

Woodsy scents: Tea tree, eucalyptus, pine, spruce, and fir.

"Tea tree and eucalyptus essential oils have an affinity for the respiratory system and have been clinically shown to kill the airborne flu virus," says aromatherapist and ayurveda specialist Leigh Winters. "Lemongrass, ginger and cinnamon bark are known to work wonders on battling bacteria in the air."

Cary Caster, a botanist and founder of Essential Oil Line 21 Drops, also points to conifer oils like pine, spruce, and fir all with layers of antibacterial properties.

"These oils are particularly great to help clear and support the lungs, which is our first line of defence against airborne bacteria. They also help to make the house smell like the winter season with their earthy scents," she says.

Citrus scents: Sweet orange, lemon, and grapefruit.

"Sweet orange, lemon, and grapefruit essential oils are all antimicrobial and destroy airborne germs with their high levels of limonene," explains Caster. "These citrus oils are also highly beneficial to the liver and lymphatic systems, which makes them a double bonus for cleansing the blood of toxins."

How to use them.

If you're looking to clear the air at home or work, consider investing in a high quality all-natural candle ideally soy wax with pure essential oils or a plant base diffuser if you prefer a non-flame product.

Diffusing essential oils is an easy way to purify the air on an ongoing basis, but if you’re looking to purify a small area like your living room, bathroom, kitchen or work are, light a candle and burn for 1 to 2 hours and let the essential oils keep your air fresh and clean."

I hope these little insights help you to stay calm and relaxed, giving you an alternative way to keep your space naturally cleansed and fresh every day.

Stay safe and keep well – Much Love
