Lavender

One of the most talked about essential oil ingredients, lavender is classified as a game-changer for all its numerous benefits.

A highly versatile essential oil, lavender is most commonly used to help aid one in experiencing a more calming, relaxing effect and it is great for those who tend to toss and turn all night.

So, whether you struggle from stress or lack of sleep regularly or not, lavender is an oil that is well and truly essential for all homes and one we can’t recommend enough.

Derived from the lavender plant lavandula angustifolia, the essential oil has a long history in the herbal medicine field and is most commonly breathed in through aromatherapy methods.

The perfect ingredient to start on for your journey into a life of essential oils, we have combined some of the best on offer.

To get started on your new night-time routine of pleasant aromas, the Maison Balzac Bonne Nuit oil burner and diffuser blend is sure to have your house swiftly filled with the smells of pure French Lavandin oil.

Sit back, relax and get ready to breathe in the aroma of lavender for a night of peace.

Citrus

Is there anything better than a smell that reflects both the sun and has notes of sweetness, we think not.

Zesty and fresh, citrus essential oils also have many nutritional benefits to boast of.

Orange, lemon, lime, tangerine, bergamot and grapefruit are all part of the citrus family, and they are sure to create an invigorating experience when added to your daily or weekly therapeutic routine.

Boasting of mood boosting properties, the ability to help ease digestive disorders and act as a tonic for the liver, stomach and intestines, Eco Aroma’s pure sweet orange essential oil is not only sure to fill your room with delightful smells, but help your overall wellbeing.

For an evening-specific essential oil, Maison Balzac Le Soir has notes of cedar, myrrh and tangerine to help you feel like you are living through spring long after the season has gone.

Noted as timeless and stress-relieving, there will be no better way to end your day.

But for an oil that is ideal for the first half of the day, the Maison Balzac Le Soleil is sure to fill your morning with the most uplifting and refreshing scents.

All available in amber glass bottles, the Maison Balzac essential oils are great for oil burners and diffusers.

Herbal

Herbs are widely common in essential oils and more common than one would realise.

From subtle to potent, there is a mix of different essential oils on offer for anyone and everyone. And we have combined some of our favourite blends for you to peruse.

Made up of mixes of fennel, rosemary, basil, sage and patchouli, the more the merrier is the secret to finding the ideal herbal essential oil.

With each of their own individual benefits, there is sure to be a blend that will quickly become your favourite and most needed wellbeing product.

While the Eco Aroma pure Frankincense essential oil is classified as a herbal oil on its own, it does mix well with other herbal oils.

Used for strengthening skin and preventing the formation of blemishes when applied to the skin, the adding of alternate oils can only make it more beneficial.

For an option that can aid with clarity and focus, the Maison Balzac L’Escargot is a great blend to go for due to the ingredient fennel.

Inspired by magical moments surrounded by nature, this essential oil blend is one hoping to sweeten up your home.

Peppermint

Peppermint tea is amazing for settling stomach aches and pains, and it is for this sole reason that we are thankful peppermint exists in numerous essential oils.

Known for also helping digestion when massaged gently onto the stomach, chest or back, peppermint oil works by relaxing the smooth muscle cells that line much of the gastrointestinal tract.

And if headaches and fatigue are more your hindrance, then peppermint may still be the ideal oil for you when applied to the skin.

But, if aromatherapy is the way you like to use your oils, then breathe in your peppermint oil and smell the stress of the day reduce before the day’s end.

And if that is not enough, peppermint can also help clear your sinuses when a pesky cold rears its ugly head.

Taken from the flowering parts and leaves of the peppermint plant, peppermint oil can be quite potent in odour and flavour. It is for this reason that minimal drops are required.

For a subtle peppermint taste in foods or drinks, without the added sugared alternatives, you can also add a drop of peppermint oil to your hot chocolate.
