The Importance of Safety and Education for Essential Oils

November 13th, 2014

Today, the use of essential oils has increased in popularity and gained momentum among people of all ages, but do people that are using essential oils really know what they are and how to use them safely? While you don’t need to be a chemist to use essential oils, you should educate yourself on the why’s & how’s to use them safely.

 

drop-img1

 

Here are 3 quick tips when using essential oils:

1. You shouldn’t use essential oils neat on the skin that are undiluted, as this could cause skin irritations. Some oils that are known to commonly cause irritation are Lemongrass and Cinnamon.

2. Certain essential oils, such as Bergamot and Opopanax, may cause your skin to burn in the sun.

3. The quality of essential oils can vary, therefore it’s important to do the research and make sure you are buying unadulterated oils. A great way to determine whether or not there are any additives or impurities is to ensure that the oils have been GC/MS tested at a third party testing facility.

 

If you’re looking to expand your knowledge of essential oils and live in the South Florida area, our founder, Cary Caster, will be teaching an essential oil therapy workshop for the Scents of the Season!

Essential Oils for Back-to-School

August 20th, 2014

It’s time to say goodbye to the relaxing days of summer and go back to school! While we tend to dread the onslaught of “full on” days, there are essential oils that you can incorporate into your family’s daily routine to help make each stage of the day a tad bit easier! Below is a list of different essential oils you can diffuse during different times of the day.

 

EOs_BacktoSchool_Blog

 

 

Essential oils for the morning:

When my children were smaller, they did not have to be told 1oo times to get out of bed. Instead, they were woken up by the stimulating scents of peppermint and rosemary wafting under their noses. These essential oils will help to perk the whole family up and start the day with alertness and energy.

 

Essential oils for the afternoon:

Waiting in the pick-up line can be a drag, but by spraying calming and uplifting oils into the car (such as grapefruit, sweet orange and jasmine), both you and your children will be in a great mood on the way home from school. This allows for a well-deserved decompression before plowing into the rest of your afternoon schedules.

If your children participate in after-school sports, try some revitalizing oils, such as juniper, cedarwood and cardamom.

To help them focus on homework, diffuse stimulating blends, such as peppermint or rosemary.

 

Essential oils for bedtime:

Long school days, dinner and the homework blitz can leave kids wired at the end of the day. Incorporating relaxing oils, such as vetiver, sandalwood, palmarosa and lavender, into their evening regime will help them unwind and have a restful sleep.

 

Essential oils to build up immunity during the night:

With “back-to-school” comes a breeding of new germs that can assault the healthiest of children. At the slightest sign of a sniffle, or even just as a precaution, I suggest loading up your children with immune-building essential oils, such as eucalyptus, rosewood, ravintsara and tea tree. These will help keep your children from missing important time in the classroom– helping them to be their best self!
