Essentials Oils: You Don’t Need to Smell Like Hippy


Where did I find this?: I always thought essential oils meant smelling like patchouli and rocking some serious dreads. When I discovered the amazing deliciousness that is Living Libations oil while attending one of David Wolfe's events at Ron and Nadine's property in Haliburton, I knew I could never go back to using any others.

Why I Love It: For one, essential oils are amazing for their anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties- which means they make the BEST cleaning partners around.  Use peppermint oil to perk up your natural dish detergent or add lavender oil into your laundry.  I use lavender in my bath and on my pillow, and cover myself in it before yoga. Mix peppermint with coconut oil for a sweet shoulder massage. Secondly, these oils are food grade- meaning you can safely (and deliciously consume them).  Tangerine makes an excellent addition to your bubbly water or add a drop or two of Lemongrass oil to your superfood broth.

Why You Will Love It: Where do I start! Own a skin brush? Add a few drops of your favourite oil scent and brush- or add a drop into your coconut oil for a sweet-scented moisturizer. Got a sleep masks? Lavender oil is the best, best addition for a perfect night's sleep in pitch darkness.  Or, simply add a drop or two behind your ears for the best toxic-free scent around.

Why You Need It: You know all those "natural flavours" and "natural fragrances" you find in your food, beauty care and cleaning products? Yeah- not so natural. In fact, they are the opposite of natural, they are often loaded with toxic, potentially carcinogenic ingredients.  That is why we love our essential oils- not only can they naturally (and I mean really naturally) flavour our foods but also our laundry loads, our water, our coconut oil- all that jazz.  Sweet.

Check out my favourite Lavender oil and to order your very own.  (Or if it's more your thing- check out our other faves cinnamon, lemongrass, peppermint or tangerine).

    I use clove oil in my bath. It helps my back where I have bone on bone due to the loss of a disc in my spine.

    Essential oils are generally extracted by distillation. Steam distillation is often used. Other processes include expression or solvent extraction. They are used in perfumes, cosmetics, soaps and other products, for flavoring food and drink, and for adding scents to incense and household cleaning products.-" Warm regards <

    So happy I found your site! I have found it so helpful! Améo frankinscnese is definitely my favorite oil. Only oils I have found that are the same quality and purity as those used in medical/scientific research. Have you tried them?
  6. I love the citrus oils and rosemary; so uplifting and brighten my day! My sister currently using Lavender Oil and feel so great, very satisfied! Happy Independence Day!
