Cistus Essential Oil

Cistus

(Cistus ladaniferus)

Cistus comes from a family of plants called rock rose, which is known for beautiful shrubs and a delicate, honey-like scent.  It is believed to be the Biblical Rose of Sharon, and its honey-like fragrance is soothing and uplifting.  Steam distilled from the leaves and branches, it is an ideal choice for helping elevate positive emotions and creating an open state of mind.

Neroli essential oil

Neroli

Citrus aurantium amara† (Bitter orange) flower oil

topical aromatic

Neroli oil is an essential oil produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree (Citrus aurantium subsp. amara or Bigaradia). Its scent is sweet, honeyed and somewhat metallic with green and spicy facets.

neroli 2

Do not confuse Neroli with Orange blossom as they are extracted from the same blossom. Orange blossom can be described as smelling sweeter, warmer and more floral than neroli. The difference between how neroli and orange blossom smell and why they are referred to with different names, is a result of the process of extraction that is used to obtain the oil from the blooms. Neroli is extracted by steam distillation and orange blossom is extracted via a process of enfleuragePetitgrain, another popular essential oil, is distilled from the leaves and twigs of the same tree!

With it’s citrusy, floral scent, it was highly regarded for its uplifting aroma during ancient times and promotes relaxation, uplifts mood, and may reduce anxiousness.*

Neroli

Also, Neroli oil is reportedly one of the ingredients in the closely guarded secret recipe for the Coca-Cola soft drink.

How to use: For aromatic or topical use.  Diffuse, inhale, or add to bath water.  Apply to crown of head, back of neck, behind ears or inside wrists.  Possible skin sensitivity.

  1. Apply to pulse points throughout day to uplift mood
  2. Diffuse to fill the air with the calming aroma
  3. Apply to skin before moisturizer to support healthy looking skin!
  4. When feeling nervous or anxious, put a few drops of Neroli in your hands, cup over your nose and inhale for a confidence boost!

Three (3) Wise Men™ essential oil blend

Three (3) Wise Men™

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is topical-aromatic.jpg

Most of us are familiar with the story of the 3 wise men, or 3 magi, who bring gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the infant Jesus.  Although these gifts are ordinary offerings for a King, they were thought to be symbolic as well.

  1. Gold (virtue): A valuable which is also a symbol of kingship
  2. Frankincense (prayer): Used as incense during worship and is also a symbol of deity.
  3. Myrrh (suffering): Commonly used as an anointing oil, an embalming oil, and a symbol of death, representing that Jesus would endure persecution and die.

The 3 Wise Men™ blend contains Sandalwood, Frankincense, Myrrh, and other essential oils and is designed to promote feelings of reverence and spiritual awareness.  This blend also enhances emotional equilibrium as it soothes and uplifts the heart.

Given the name of this oil and all the biblical oils it contains, you can see how this oil is very spiritual in nature.   This is a great oil to diffuse when you want to become closer to God, maintain your faith, or want to reestablish or firm up that connection.  As you struggle with negative emotions and feel that connection slip away, use this oil to bring balance, spiritual healing and personal change.

I’ve heard personal testimony from many that this was the oil that helped them the most when going through stressful times such as divorce, death in the family, upcoming surgery, or remodeling of a home.
