Carrier Oils: The Secret Sauce!

Apr 21st 2021

Carrier Oils: The Secret Sauce! We love the benefits of essential oils. Everyone knows essential oils are too powerful to apply directly to the skin. And everyone knows what you do is dilute your essential oils in a carrier oil that “carries” the essential oil through the skin. The conventional wisdom is that any carrier oil will do—Carrier oils are not super-stars. BUT, here, we’re letting you in on a little secret—Carrier oils matter! Here’s why Amrita’s quality carrier oils are The Secret Sauce for your essential oil blends. A Therapeutic Part of Your Remedy: Your carrier oil …

Using Essential Oils To Age Gracefully

Apr 21st 2021

by Stephanie Chambers When I was sixteen, I used to put on makeup and clothes to try and make myself look older. I don’t know when I stopped doing that and instead started trying to do the opposite. Getting older brings with it some good things like maturity and hopefully wisdom and no longer sweating the small stuff as much as we used to when we were younger. But there are some aspects of it, that most of us would prefer to avoid like our hair color changing, wrinkles, not being able to move as easily, middle-aged weight gain and increasing forgetfulness. However, the good news is that …

Essential Oils From Resins: Elemi, Mastic, Benzoin Resinoid, Frankincense and Myrrh

Apr 21st 2021

by Stephanie Chambers and Dr. Christoph Streicher Most essential oils are made from fresh leaves, flowers or twigs, but there are a few special essential oils that are made from the resin of plants. A resin is different to the sap of a tree as the sap is comprised mainly of sugar and water and is found in the inner cells of the tree (e.g. maple syrup), whereas resin is a hydrocarbon liquid stored in the outer cells of the tree. All trees have some type of sap, but only some types of trees produce resin. Some trees also produce other liquids like latex (e.g. from rubber trees) and gum …

More Than Just Fair Trade – Sustainable As Well

Apr 21st 2021

by Stephanie Chambers The Fair Trade movement started out as an endeavor to ensure that producers like farmers in developing countries would be paid a fair price for their goods. However, it has now broadened to helping producers in developing countries achieve better trading conditions, improve social and environmental standards and promote sustainability. Unfortunately, although this movement started with all good intentions, it has now become rather complex, as there are a number of fair trade organizations and fair trade certifiers, many of which won’t recognize each other. In …

How Much Sleep Do We Really Need?

Apr 21st 2021

by Stephanie Chambers Recently, I was watching a wonderful show on TV “How We Got To Now” by Steven Johnson about time and he went on board a submarine. The people on this submarine had no concept of time because they were underwater and, thus, couldn’t see the sun. They said because they were short on staff, they had altered their clocks so they would only get 6 hours sleep and then be back on duty for work. I was horrified. Six hours sleep isn’t enough – not on a regular basis. I remember making a mental note to stay away from the oceans where some half-asleep submarine pilot could b …

Could Essential Oils Help Stop Fatal Hospital Infections?

Apr 21st 2021

by Stephanie Chambers I was encouraged recently by an article in Atlanta Magazine 1 about how essential oils could be used to replace antibiotics for both humans and farm animals. Antibiotics are becoming less and less effective because bacteria are becoming resistant to them. One of the research papers 2 referred to in the article described how Tea Tree Essential Oil was used to help patients heal faster from a Staphylococcus aureus infection. Apparently the differences in the rates of healing between those using Tea Tree and the controls was striking. But it was only a small in …
