What are Essential Oils?
When I was younger the idea of an essential oils conjured up the idea of potpourri sitting in a hall, or maybe the overpowering smell of lavender coming from my nana’s bathroom. Little did I know exactly what they were, and what they could do for me. Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants with tremendous healing properties. The most common term you may have heard by people using oils is aromatherapy. This holistic treatment is there to help improve physical, mental and emotional health. For over 5000 years, cultures around the world have used these healing plant oils for a variety of health conditions. They are often used for relaxation, beauty care, home cleaning and most often as natural medicine.
I have designed a range of essential oil rollerballs to target specific and common problems that we all face from time to time. Essential oils are scientifically proven to calm, soothe, and relieve anxious thoughts. They can also support deep sleep, relaxation, and lift feelings when we are overwhelmed and stressed. I created these blends though the need of a bit of help in all of those areas!
Here are my 5 favourite things about using rollerballs for my essential oils:
1. Your oils last longer.
Rather than using oils neat, your rollerball blend is created using fractionated coconut oil, which works as a fantastic 'carrier oil' to make your oils last longer. Many oils are too strong to use directly on the skin, so these rollerballs ensure you use your oils safely.
2. Your oils are super effective.
Using oils "neat" or straight out of the bottle is effective, but not always the most desirable way to apply oils. Diluting your oils with a carrier oil (fractionated coconut oil) actually keeps them on your skin longer and decreases the evaporation rate.
3. You can say goodbye to stronger medicines.
Having specific oils and blends means that you can now look after your body with essential oils appose to 'over the counter' medicines. When you get a stomach ache, you can reach for my 'Tummy' Blend, when you feel the start of a cold you use 'Immune'. Knowing you are treating my body in a natural, safe and effective way.
4. Your life gets easier.
Rollerballs make everything with oils easier. Put them in your bag and you're out the door. No messy oils on your hands while you're out and about and need a quick application.
5. Your whole family can be empowered.
I love rollerballs because they are diluted and safe for kids. They can be used by adults, teens and kids for emotional and physical support throughout the day. When you start to add oils to your daily life, it helps you become very aware of your feelings and how your needs shift during the day. I love that we can all be empowered to take action on how we feel.
