Candles for You: A mainstay of aromatherapy, scented candles can provide relief, improve your mood and even aid with sleep. Inhale the relaxing benefits of peppermint and eucalyptus. Lift your spirit with hand-poured creations of comfort from sweetly spiced cedarwood to energizing citrus. Or fall into a deep and blissful sleep to the stress-relieving scent of lavender and chamomile.
Candles for Your Home: An elegant way to change the energy in a space or provide an engaging atmosphere for guests, candles belong in every room of your home. Keep bugs at bay with a fragrant blend of citronella and clove or sweeten the scene with notes of candied almond and smooth vanilla with candle delicacies, just in time for dessert.
Candles for Your Friends: It’s no secret that candles make great gifts. Whether celebrating a birthday, anniversary, promotion or just to let those you love know you’re thinking about them, candles are a thoughtful, useful and beautiful gift, especially mini candles or gift sets.
Harness the healing powers of nature with pure essential oils. Extracted directly from roots, bark, flowers, leaves or seeds, oils can have powerful health, beauty and aromatherapy benefits in just one drop. Highly concentrated, therapeutic and aromatic, these natural remedies have a wide range of uses—from diffusing into the air to refresh your home to treating specific skin concerns or relaxing sore muscles.
Relax: Try lavender oil—one of the most versatile and widely used oils in aromatherapy—to relax sore or tense muscles. Soothe aches (and headaches!) with cooling peppermint, a must-have oil that also has antimicrobial properties and can freshen bad breath or relieve digestive discomfort. Lemongrass and frankincense improve circulation and decrease inflammation to ease pain and spasms.
Rest: Get a better night's sleep and feel more rested and energized with a little help from oils that alleviate insomnia, help your brain shut off and improve the quality of your sleep. Some of the best, most pleasantly aromatic oils for better rest include lavender, ylang ylang, sandalwood and cedarwood. Just rub a couple of drops onto the back of your neck or the bottoms of your feet before bed, or use a diffuser to fill your room with calm and reap the benefits with every breath.
Skincare: Want a healthy, glowing complexion naturally? For oily, sensitive or mature skin, use neroli oil to smooth fine lines, regenerate cells and improve skin’s elasticity. With its natural antimicrobial properties, jasmine effectively heals blemishes and scars, tones all skin types and helps skin to naturally balance moisture and reduce dryness.
Heal: Many essential oils are powerful antiseptics and can be used to treat burns, cuts, stings—even infections. Some of the more common healing oils include clove (especially for oral infections), frankincense, citrus oils, rosemary and tea tree. Other oils are excellent aids in alleviating coughs and colds—like peppermint for dry coughs or eucalyptus for a sore throat.
Peace & Calm: Lavender is a nervous system restorative that helps reduce anxiety, tension, panic attacks and restlessness. Inhale or take orally to achieve greater inner peace and better rest. Vetiver has a tranquil, grounding energy used to alleviate trauma and deepen self-awareness. Cheery and bright, ylang ylang is a mood-lifting oil that encourages optimism and alleviates fear. Chamomile is widely used to increase inner harmony and decrease irritability, worry and overthinking. Finally, frankincense is excellent for quieting the mind and deepening meditation.
The benefits and uses of aromatherapy oils are endless, so kick up your creativity and start experimenting with blends perfectly suited to your needs and desires.
