The popularity of essential oils is soaring, and it's no surprise why. With an increasing awareness of the ingredients in our everyday products, more people are making a conscious shift towards natural alternatives for their homes and bodies. Essential oils not only provide us with an enjoyable aroma, but can also gradually help to eliminate toxins from our living spaces and even transform our beauty regimens.
Rare Essence explains it well:
“Aromatherapy uses essential oils from plants in order to promote healing and wellness in the body, as well as in the home. Essential oils are the concentrated extracts from plant materials like barks, roots, peels, and leaves, which constitute the very essence of the plant. Plants have been used for their healing properties for centuries, and essential oils are widely used in many different aspects of life today.”
For beginners, navigating the world of essential oils may seem a bit overwhelming, but fear not — like any new routine, mastering the basics is the key and you’ll have your favourite blends picked out in no time!
The utility of essential oils knows no bounds. You can diffuse them to infuse your home with benefiting scents, create a serene atmosphere, and banish unwelcome odours. Topical application is another avenue, especially when blended with a carrier oil like fractioned coconut oil. Some oils even find their way into your kitchen, how fun!
Here at Anna’s, we proudly stock Rare Essence, an organic oil line crafted in the USA. Our current favourite blend is peppermint — a comforting classic for any day of the week. Truly, any blend helps prep your space before guests arrive or eliminating stubborn odours. You really can’t go wrong!
There are endless diffuser blends to explore, from immune-boosting mixes to focus-enhancing concoctions. We especially enjoy concocting blends tailored for different seasons and holidays — here are the blend’s available at the Garden Centre:
When you think about it, there’s really an essential oil for just about anything! Digestion? Tummy rescue has you covered! Relaxation? Lavender does the trick!
If a good night's sleep is what you seek, incorporating essential oils into your nightly routine is a game-changer. For families with little ones, creating a tranquil atmosphere is essential. Diffusing a blend of Lavender, Cedarwood, and Orange guarantees a calming effect and sets the stage for a restful night's sleep. Sleep is precious, and with the right essential oils, you can make it even more serene for your entire family.
