Pure Essential Oils

Essential Oils have long been used across the globe for a number of things. Some people believe that certain oils have mystical properties and have used them in magical rites and ceremonies. Other believe that some oils have powerful healing properties for mind, body and spirit. Whatever you believe it's a fact that aromatherapy has become very popular world wide and more and more people are turning back to alternative medicines in which essential oils and plant extracts play a large part. Essential oils are extracted from various plant parts like flowers, leaves, stems, roots, seeds, bark, resin or fruit rinds. Each plant contains only a tiny percentage of essential oil, so several kilos of the plant are harvested to extract a few millilitres of oil. Therefore, these oils are highly concentrated and usually dispensed in drops, or mixed with a base oil for massages. They contain hundreds of therapeutic constituents and are used in personal products, aromatherapy, and for sanitary and healthcare reasons.

Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil

£3.35

Latin Name : Cananga Odorata. Part of Plant Used : Flowers. Source : Camores. Extraction Method : Steam Distillation.
Ylang Ylang III Essential Oil, available in 10ml, 50ml and 0.5 kilogramme

Ylang Ylang is a large tree native to the far eastern countries like Malaysia, Philippines, and Indonesia. Its yellow flowers are strongly fragrant and have long trailing petals. The essential oil made from it is available in abundance and is therefore the least expensive but is highly favoured for its fragrance in the perfume and cosmetics industries, and is also being used in the food industry today.According to science, ylang-ylang essential oil is a mental stimulant. In contrast, the world of aromatherapy considers this oil one of the best at relaxing the mind and the body. Simply smelling it is supposed to help lower blood pressure. Taking a bath with the oil or using it in a massage oil naturally enhances the relaxation experience. It is used to relieve stress, depression, shock, or anxiety. When used as a hair tonic, it is supposed to balance oil production. Be warned, though, that high concentrations of ylang ylang can cause headaches or nausea.

Ylang Ylang means the flower of flowers in Malay, and was traditionally thought of as an aphrodisiac and a relaxing fragrance, so the flowers of this tree were strewn on the marriage bed of a newly married couple in Indonesia. Muslim women used to burn this oil to scent their harems, the part of the palace reserved for women. In China, the fragrance was used to purify the robes of the mandarin. Ylang Ylang essential oil has been associated with perfumes and relaxation for a long time.

Marjoram Spanish Essential Oil

£4.45

Latin Name : Thymus Mastichina. Part Of Plant Used : Leaves & Flowering Tops. Source : Spain. Extraction Method : Steam Distillation.
Available in 10ml, 50ml and 0.5 kilogramme

Marjoram essential oil is steam distilled from the Thymus mastichina plant, which has a hairy stem, oval leaves and little whitish flowers in clusters. The entire plant exudes a strong aroma. This plant is actually wild growing thyme, but is known as Spanish Wild Marjoram. It belongs to the lamiaceae family of Spain and is not the same as sweet or French Marjoram; neither is it oregano, which is also called wild marjoram.

This oil is said to be more effective than that of
sweet marjoram when used as an expectorant for
respiratory tract infections and spasms, as it has antiseptic properties for the upper respiratory tract, but is not a muscle relaxant or a sedative, as sweet marjoram is. Spanish marjoram oil is commonly used in aromatherapy and blends well with lavender and bergamot oils for creating a relaxing environment. When used in an oil burner or in a massage oil, this herb is said to calm the nerves, and fight loneliness and rejection. It also aids digestion.

Spanish wild marjoram is known to have been used by herbalists since ancient Greece. Ancient Greeks and Romans crowned bridal couples with wreaths of marjoram to symbolize love, honour and happiness. Marjoram tea with honey was used by singers to preserve their voices.

Mandarin Essential Oil

£2.85

Latin Name : Citrus Nobilis. Part Of Plant Used : Fruit Peel. Source : Italy. Extraction Method : Cold Expression.
Available in 10ml, 50ml and 0.5kg

Mandarin essential oil is obtained from Citrus Reticulata, by cold compression of the peel. Mandarin Petitgrain oil is also extracted in small quantities by steam distillation of the leaves and twigs. The oil is golden yellow-orange and has the aroma of a fresh orange. An entire group of citrus fruits come under the umbrella of Mandarin oranges, including Satsuma, Clementine, Dancy, Honey, Pixie, and tangerines.

This oil is very gentle and is hence said to be used for treating even children and pregnant women, one of the few oils to be used this way. With its tonic and stimulating effect on both the stomach and the liver it is helpful for digestive problems. Mandarin oil is also useful for treating acne, oily skin, and spots. It is supposed to help ease problems such as fluid retention and obesity as well. The oil, diluted around 1-2% in a carrier oil, is massaged gently on a child's tummy to relieve a tummy ache. A few drops in the bath calms hyperactive children. Used in an oil burner, it dispels depression and relieves anxiety.

The Mandarin oranges are so called because they were traditionally offered as gifts to the mandarins of China. In France, the Mandarin is considered a safe remedy to treat indigestion in children, and for the elderly as it helps strengthen the digestive system and the liver. Native to Southern China and the Far East, the Mandarin orange was brought to Europe in 1805 and to America in 1845.

Lime Essential Oil

£2.60

Latin Name : Citrus Aurantifolia. Part Of Plant Used : Fruit Peel. Source : Mexico. Extraction Method : Cold Expression.
Available in 10ml, 50ml and 0.5 kilogramme

Lime oil is obtained from Citrus aurantifolia, also known as Mexican or West Indian lime, as well as sour lime. The oil is extracted from the peel of the unripe skin by cold expression or from the peel and/or the whole ripe fruit by steam distillation. Lime oil has a sharp, citrus smell that immediately perks up one's mood on smelling it, and is pale yellow to light olive in colour.

Lime oil, when used in an oil burner, stimulates a tired mind and helps ease anxiety, apathy, and depression. It is useful to reduce fevers associated with colds, sore throats, and flu. It increases immunity while easing coughs, bronchitis, sinusitis, and asthma. It is said to be helpful for arthritis, rheumatism and poor circulation, as well as for obesity and cellulite. This oil is good for the skin; it reduces oiliness and acne, helps with herpes, insect bites and cuts. However, the oil that is obtained by cold expression (as opposed to steam distillation) can cause photosensitivity and irritate the skin.

Limes are originally from Asia, but they are now grown in most warm countries like Italy, the West Indies, and the Americas. The lime is green when raw and ripens to yellow, and usually measures about two inches in diameter. It was introduced into Europe by the Moors and from there it migrated to the Americas. The lime is said to have a lower Vitamin C content than lemons do. People often carried limes on long ship journeys to prevent sailors getting scurvy from Vitamin C deficiency.
