De-Stress Makes a Great Birthday Present

March 24th, 2014

“I love 21 drops! I had asked at my local spa if they had any aromatherapy products, and at the time they said they didn’t. Fast forward to a grand opening at the same spa after they had moved to a new location. I saw that they had 21 drops and were giving away samples. However, they were incredibly busy and I left without my 21 drops. ūüôĀ A few weeks later was my birthday and my husband surprised me with a bottle of De-Stress. I use it all the time and never go out of town without it! Thanks 21 drops for a great product. Just what I was looking for!”

The Cary Diaries: Cary Nose Best

March 13th, 2014

After a 45-minute boat ride across Lake Nahuel Huapi, Cary arrived at Victoria Island in Bariloche, Patagonia. It didn’t take her botanical nose long to determine that there were Eucalyptus trees growing somewhere close, and with that, she and her husband, Rick, were off on the hunt. They hiked along the 7-mile path towards the Arrayanes Wood; lo and behold, that sniffer was right. Mobdro About a half hour into the hike, Cary found what she was looking (or smelling) for.


Watch as Cary finds one of her all-time favorite trees:



Discovered by English Surgeon General John White upon his arrival in Australia in 1788, Eucalyptus was initially recognized for its olfactory properties. Mobdro APK Download But soon after, crude distillation of the tree’s leaves would produce an essential oil widely known throughout Europe for its antiseptic, antibacterial, anticatharral and sudorific properties, making it a common choice to treat most respiratory conditions. This oil uplifts, cools and cleanses the mind, body and home.


Eucalyptus oil can be found in our Immunity and Decongest blends.

The Cary Diaries: Cary Makes an Interesting Discovery in Patagonia

March 4th, 2014


Cary is quite the adventurer. Recently, she and her husband, Rick, traveled to the Patagonia region of South America.  While hiking through the Andes, they came across beautiful Cedarwood trees along the coast.



Cedarwood oil is possibly the first essential oil to be extracted from a plant. ¬†The oils are created by distilling the wood chips and sawdust from the trees, producing a masculine oil, strong and stable, which is often used to anchor a blend. ¬†This isn’t surprising, as King Solomon himself chose Cedarwood, precisely for its strength, to build his Temple in Jerusalem, and the ancient Egyptians applied the oil during the mummification process.


Medicinally, Cedarwood oil is known for its anti-infectious, astringent and tonifying therapeutic properties and has been used as a tonic for the kidneys and central nervous system.  This oil increases strength and endurance, soothes the mind and promotes confidence and perseverance.


Cedarwood oil can be found in our Invigorate, Strength, Transform, Will Power and Inspire blends.
