Single Oils

Jasmine Touch – Jasmine is a wonderful oil to calm and balance you.  It can help take the frustrations away!  The smell is wonderful, and is good for sleep as it is a night bloomer!  It is also an aphrodisiac!

Lemongrass – Lemongrass essential oil can cleanse and tone the skin, and is frequently used in skin care products for these benefits. Lemongrass has a soothing aroma, making it an ideal oil to use in massage.  I love lemongrass.  I use it in cooking too.  It gives a wonderful taste to my Thai Chicken Soup.  Only 1 drop to start then add more if you like.

It is a wonderful oil for so many ailments.  It helps with Kidney problems, rubbing on the area diluted with Fractionated Coconut Oil or taking it orally, 2 drops in 4 oz. of water 2-3 times a day.  The refreshing taste won’t bother you.  It relieves pain from connective tissue injury, joint, tendon and ligament pain!  It works great on Plantar Fasciitis, massage on the bottom of your feet, in the instep often during the day, or in the morning and night!  The top properties: anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, decongestant, regenerative and anti-rheumatic.  Used diffusing, it is good for emotional balance.

Note: Lemongrass is used in the pharmaceutical industry for the synthesis of Vitamin A!

PeppermintWhat does Peppermint not do?  It is one of the most “go to” oils for me.  It helps with tummy upsets, headaches, energy levels, wake you up qualities and so much more.

Geranium Oil 
This oil has been used as a beautifying agent in Ancient Egyptian times.  Geranium oil is extracted from the entire geranium plant. The uses and benefits of this beautiful plant are fabulous and are used to boost the appearance of skin and hair.  Add 2-4 drops to your favourite moisturizer to promote glowing skin!  Add it to massage oil or Fractionated Coconut oil for a grounding, calm.

Geraniums are used in the perfume industry for their floral scent.  Inhaling Geranium oil’s sweet aroma can support emotions by creating a calming and grounding effect.  Its aroma can also help lessen feelings of stress and calm nerves.  The benefits of Geranium can also be in seen in both dry and oily hair and can be used to give hair a vibrant glow.  Add a few drops to your shampoo and conditioner!

                               VETIVER

Let’s start off with one of my favourite Essential Oils.  Vetiver is grown in Haiti.  doTERRA has enabled the Haiti to grow and harvest the thick grass.  This Essential Oil is ideal for creating a peaceful environment, but also has a grounding, calming fragrance.  My favourite for the bottom of my feet and in my diffuser at night.

For Deep relaxation – add to your bath.   For a revitalizing appearance – add to your skincare routine.

Mix it with some Fractionated Coconut oil and massage it on your feet and legs at the end of the day for a soothing result.

It is especially blending well with Lavender, Wild Orange, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, and the newest oil for me Litsea.

Other uses for Vetiver – Focus and Concentration, Feeling lost, not being able to sleep, loss of appetite due to feeling of sadness… it basically helps with your emotional balance.  It is known as the oil of “Tranquility”.  🙂
