A Woman's Balance: The ingredients of A Woman’s Balance are Bergamot, Rose Geranium, Clary Sage and Roman Chamomile essential oils. These four essential oils are known to be a woman’s best friends. Bergamot is one of the most emotionally uplifting essential oils, which women have been using for centuries to counteract seasonal depression due to lack of sunlight. One of the most troubling symptoms of premenstrual syndrome is a sudden emotional disturbance due to the drop in estrogen, which immediately precedes that “time of the month.” The mildly euphoric scent of Bergamot helps to counteract monthly depression and maintain positive energy levels. Rose Geranium is chemically composed as if it was tailor-made for the woman’s physiology. It balances the female hormones, calms the nervous system and, like Bergamot, lifts away depression. Perhaps it is no coincidence that its universally adored rosy scent has traditionally been a staple in women’s perfumes. The sweet and soothingly herbal scent of Clary Sage is considered the number one oil for women to support them throughout every stage of life, literally from birth. Clary Sage helps facilitate healthy childbirth. Then, when the child enters the onset of puberty, Clary Sage helps balance hormones, ensuring that the menstrual periods are neither scanty nor excessive and that cramping and other symptoms of discomfort are soothed. After easing childbirth, it then helps nursing mothers produce breast milk. Finally, in menopause, Clary Sage is again the heroine, preventing and reducing hot flashes, tension and mood swings. Another unique feature of Clary Sage is that it is mildly euphoric, a pleasant experience for many women. Roman Chamomile has a clean, sweet, fresh aroma that perfectly blends with Clary Sage as if the two were cousins. Roman Chamomile is a premium oil for calming and reducing spasms of all kinds. Just to give a sense of the potency of this demure and gentle-smelling oil, it is best known for stopping asthma attacks. Added to this blend, Roman Chamomile ensures relief from any type of abdominal pain or even a menstruation-related migraine. Therapeutically, each one of the essential oils in A Woman’s Balance is a true star in its own right. Each one has an incredibly beautiful, comforting scent. And together, they create a synergy that is quite startlingly effective at stopping uncomfortable symptoms. Prepare to be surprised at what this little bottle can do. All you have to do is add a few drops to a massage oil and apply topically where there is discomfort. Within seconds of applying to the abdomen, not only do menstrual cramps melt away, but a total feeling of comfort surrounds you like a warm, nurturing embrace in mother’s arms.
Allergy Easer: The ingredients of Allergy Easer are Moroccan Blue Chamomile, Amni Visnaga, Lavender, Rosewood and Hyssop essential oils. Allergy attacks can range from the mildly annoying to the very debilitating. Antihistamine medications often are minimally helpful or create drowsiness. With the time-tested essential oils in Allergy Easer, you can feel confident that your allergies may diminish in a natural, healthy way. Moroccan Blue Chamomile is said to have powerful antihistamine effects and may help with hay fever and other allergies. Its anti-inflammatory effects are excellent for calming down skin hives triggered by allergies. Amni Visnaga Essential Oil supports normal respiratory function. It is antispasmodic, which means it eases spasms. It is also antihistamine, which means it blocks the allergic response. It’s so effective in treating asthma that scientists actually create a synthesized version of one of Amni Visnaga’s major compounds, which is part of prescription asthma medications. Hyssop expels phlegm from the respiratory channels and has a calming effect on the nervous system. Rosewood strengthens respiratory function. Lavender is calming and helps minimize allergic reactions by providing overall relaxation. If you suffer from allergies that can sometimes get in the way of fun activities where allergens are present, or if you avoid going to certain places where you fear the air quality is bad, this potent, blue-colored synergy belongs in your purse or pocket. Enjoy the freedom that comes from having a secret weapon for allergies on hand at all times.
Citrus Bliss: This is a celestial, sunny blend for a pure and happy heart. This blend is like sunshine; it’s the best antidote for a gloomy day. The absolutely tantalizing aroma irresistibly improves your mood. The ingredients of Citrus Bliss are Lime, Bergamot, Tangerine, Neroli, Yellow Lemon and Pink Grapefruit essential oils. Distilled Lime has a sweet, candy-like aroma, offering the blend its calming, sedating effects while simultaneously reducing mental fatigue or apathy. Bergamot is considered emotional sunshine and has the reputation for clearing depression. Tangerine soothes anxiety and can be used to stop panic attacks. It is also said to promote restful sleep and create a happy mood. Neroli is another oil used in aromatherapy to reduce anxiety, fear and other nervous disturbances. It is also a sensual aphrodisiac, highly relaxing to the point of sedation. Yellow Lemon is also known as an antidepressant, giving energy while stimulating mental clarity and concentration. Pink Grapefruit has a playful, cheerful effect on the emotions and is often recommended for reducing depression as well. It is also helpful for curbing excess appetite. These powerful citrus essential oils each have many of the same qualities. But just as sparkling crystal prisms reflect the sun’s pure light into various shapes and colors, each oil contributes its unique chemical composition to create a full spectrum of uplifting, positive feelings.
Deep Rest: The ingredients of Deep Rest are Red Mandarine, Lavender Extra, Sweet Marjoram and Mandarine Petitgrain essential oils. The calming Red Mandarin and Mandarine Petitgrain in the blend are spasm-easing, mood-enhancing and tension-relieving, as well as giving the blend its sweet citrus scent. Lavender’s famous relaxing effects can help dissolve negative thoughts and worries in an overactive mind. Lavender reduces tension and helps stabilize the emotions, preventing insomnia and enabling you to just “let go” and fall asleep peacefully. Sweet Marjoram is the most calming and stress-relieving oil there is in aromatherapy. It helps with muscle pain and mental and physical strain, and although it is relaxing like Ylang Ylang, it has the opposite effect from being an aphrodisiac. It is considered “anaphrodisiac,” meaning it diminishes the sex drive as it eases tension. When you open the bottle of Deep Rest, you may recognize the familiar scent of Lavender. When diffused it helps even the most long-suffering insomniacs enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. It can also be used in a relaxing bath before bed, diluted in a carrier oil for massage or applied topically to the soles of the feet, pulse points and temples. Because the oils in this synergy are extremely stress-relieving, Deep Rest may also be used during the day as a secret weapon against times of intense stress.
Headache Reliever: The ingredients of Headache Reliever are Birch, Peppermint and Sweet Lavandin essential oils. Headaches occur due to a variety of factors, but regardless of why they occur, what they all have in common is we want them to go away fast. It is difficult to be productive or be in a good mood when your head is pounding and throbbing with agony at every move. Although dozens of over-the-counter and prescription formulas are out there, not everyone is able to find a pain medication that actually provides relief. Moreover, those who do use an effective pain reliever are often doing damage to their livers; they are overloading the liver with synthetic chemicals that needlessly travel through the whole bloodstream, when the pain is only in one region of the body — the head, face and neck. By applying Headache Reliever to the area of pain only, you can avoid giving your body a toxic overload with headache medicines, which are notorious for their side effects, including damage to the stomach lining.
Mandarine Sunset: This formula contains the three most important essential oils for relieving headache pain, and Headache Reliever can also be applied to achy feet and sore muscles. Birch and Peppermint release tension and provide instant pain relief. Sweet Lavandin is famous for calming the nerves and releasing tension. The ingredients of Mandarine Sunset are Red Mandarine, Mandarine Petitgrain, Lemongrass and Basil essential oils. The Red Mandarine and Mandarine Petitgrain in the blend are spasm-easing, mood-enhancing and tension-relieving, as well as giving the blend its sweet citrus scent. They are also excellent for skin beautification, improving tone and reducing problem skin conditions. The Lemongrass is grounding, relaxing and nourishing to the emotions. Basil is one of the very best oils for producing mental clarity, focus and alertness, as well as being spasm-suppressing, calming to the nervous system and uplifting to the emotions. Together, the benefits of these oils are only amplified, and the result is a spectacular experience of total refreshment that will leave you smiling.
Mental Energizer: The ingredients of Mental Energizer are Yellow Lemon, Lime, Peppermint and Ginger essential oils. Distilled Lime has a sweet, candy-like aroma and offers a calming effect to the blend, while simultaneously creating alertness and reducing mental fatigue or apathy. Yellow Lemon is known as an antidepressant, and it gives energy while stimulating mental clarity and concentration. Although Peppermint is a completely different type of scent than Yellow Lemon, it has something in common with Lemon; they both stimulate the same area of the brain, the central hippo-campus, and they both help with memory loss and lapses. Ginger is also energizing to the brain, stimulating memory and mental clarity. This blend is truly spectacular, and both students and professionals swear that it gives them the edge they need to excel. You can feel the effects instantly simply by applying it diluted to the temple area that surrounds the brain. The cooling sensation on the skin and resulting wide-awake feeling seem to occur simultaneously.
Pure Joy: The ingredients of Pure Joy are Ylang Ylang Extra, Bergamot, Pink Grapefruit and Lavender Essential Oils. Ylang Ylang Extra is an extremely potent essential oil that benefits the heart and cardiovascular system, reducing blood pressure and creating a relaxed state of mind and body. This truly unencumbered state of being improves receptivity to enjoyment. Ylang Ylang is considered the most aphrodisiac essential oil because when people use it, the tension and inhibitions that normally block a playful, loving mood are simply eliminated. In this formula, the Pink Grapefruit tones down the aphrodisiac effect of Ylang Ylang, bringing out more of its euphoric effects. Pink Grapefruit has a playful, cheerful effect on the emotions and is often recommended for reducing depression as well. Bergamot is one of the most emotionally uplifting citrus essential oils. It is the trademark ingredient that gives Earl Grey tea its appetizing, euphoric aroma. The universally appealing scent of Bergamot helps to counteract depression and maintain positive energy levels. The famously calming essential oil of Lavender can help dissolve negative thoughts and worries in an overactive mind. It reduces tension in mind and body and helps stabilize the emotions. Lavender Oil is great for leaving any stresses from work behind at the end of the day so you can fully be present for enjoying the evening. Together these four essential oils synergize in Pure Joy to create an uplifting, relaxing blend. Pure Joy can be enjoyed in the bath, in massage oil and diluted topically to enhance special romantic occasions, or it simply can be diffused to create a happy atmosphere.
Respiration: This blend increases the oxygenation of cells throughout the body, infusing the whole body with life-giving oxygen and making breathing more efficient. Respiration may help strengthen overall lung health. The ingredients of Respiration are Eucalyptus Globulus, Part. Rect., Siberian Fir and Niaouli essential oils. The warming effect of Eucalyptus is helpful in soothing sore throats and breathing passages. It is antiseptic, attacking mucus and the cold virus. It is good for treating and preventing colds, particularly with congestion. Siberian Fir brings relief to conditions of the upper and lower respiratory tract. Its fresh, sweet, balsamic scent purifies the air and is often included in blends to diffuse over the holidays. Niaouli has a clarifying effect on the breathing passages and is antiseptic, protecting your respiratory system from airborne infections. If you have issues with your respiratory system or just want to optimize your breathing for overall wellness, then Respiration is a synergy that will do wonders for you, particularly when steam-inhaled.
Sweet Restoration: The ingredients of Sweet Restoration are Rosemary, Lavender Extra and Sweet Lavandin Essential Oils. Sweet Restoration is a traditional French aromatherapy formula excellent for maintaining a sense of groundedness and inner balance. This fresh, herbal blend is perfect for use during work hours to avoid getting stressed out during that time. The Lavender Extra and Sweet Lavandin are relaxing while the Rosemary is invigorating; therefore, this blend supports you while you’re engaged in activity. It is not intended to be used to unwind, nor is it intended for extreme activity, such as sports competitions. Rather, this formula is helpful for feeling balanced during day-to-day activities. Rosemary is a stimulating essential oil that helps revive fatigued muscles and enhance athletic performance. When topically applied to the scalp, it also helps generate thick strong hair, gleaming with vitality. Rosemary is useful for restoring your inner stability, strength and robust energy. The calming oils of Lavender and Sweet Lavandin can help dissolve negative thoughts and worries in an overactive mind while they help stabilize the emotions. They are famous for releasing tension, enabling you to just “let go.” Lavender and Sweet Lavandin are known to soothe frustration and irritability, especially in times of crisis. They also are cell-rejuvenating when applied topically, helping the skin recover from burns, cuts and infections. In addition, they are used to prevent scarring and stretch marks. Sweet Restoration is perfect for demanding situations such as surgery, an illness, a cross-country move and all kinds of life challenges that we encounter each day.
