Citrus limon!

Lemon_15ml_USDA_WEB__06562.1455844284
What essential oil do I recommend in the diffuser this time of year?
Lemon: Citrus limon!
From the Monoterpene family and so high in limonene (71.24%) , Lemon makes an excellent deodorizer and immune system stimulant!
It boasts anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-depressant, and anti-inflammatory- perfect for dark days of winter!
So spread some happy sunshine in your home, lift your spirits and your immune system!
On the safety side:  Citrus’ can be Phototoxic (may cause skin discoloration if exposed to UV rays, natural or artificial). Avoid sunlight for 12 hours after applying topically. May cause skin irritation, especially if the oil is past its “best by” date. Use in low dilution (1%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Keep out of reach of children. (Pompeii Organics)
Otherwise serve up large amounts of this wonderful fruit! I drink a few mugs of hot (fresh) lemon water first thing every morning. It has  cleansed my congested liver and it has kept my husband’s kidney stones completely dormant! Lemon slices in your water, lemon in your honey, and lemon essential oil in your diffuser for a healthy happy Holiday season!

 

The Aroma!!

20160915_191542

Many times when I am near someone, or give some one a hug they will lean in a little closer or hold me a little longer. I usually hear; “you smell SO good!” We also hear that about our home! I am so blessed! I get to be surrounded by these wonderful, healthful oils every day and much of our fabric and clothes have the permanent fragrance!!

There is a scientific, chemical back up to all of this. It is not the fake chemical per-fumy smell that I so often come across in public, it’s natural, earthy and healthy smelling. Although some people may still have allergies to certain essential oils, most fragrance sensitivities are caused by artificial fragrance chemicals. Pure essential oils have a chemical make up with a variety of health benefits! Sedation, alertness, calming, anti-viral and anti-inflammatory are just a few of the amazing benefits of essential oils.

The aroma is truly Honest! Un adulterated and pure. My vehicle smells the same way!! Of course I use the products too! Body and hand lotions or oils with my favorite blends, and my face oil for wrinkles smells pretty amazing! All of them containing a variety of health benefits, emotional support and  balance.

Oh, The Aromas! What essential oils do you use? We want to hear from you today!
