RE­FRESH­ING, RE­VI­TAL­IS­ING, UP­LIFT­ING

Cit­rus oils – as well as mint, mar­jo­ram and basil – are known for their re­fresh­ing, cleans­ing and re­vi­tal­is­ing qual­i­ties, and are great to use in prod­ucts to wake you up when you’re hot and tired.

WARM­ING, RE­LAX­ING, SOOTH­ING

The rich, spicy and woody essences of ginger, cedar­wood, cin­na­mon, frank­in­cense and san­dal­wood are warm­ing to the skin, and have long-last­ing qual­i­ties when used in home fra­grance prod­ucts such as can­dles.

RE­GEN­ER­AT­ING, BAL­ANC­ING

The re­gen­er­at­ing and bal­anc­ing qual­i­ties of oral oils like rose, jas­mine, ylang ylang, neroli and gera­nium can be used to pro­duce restora­tive treat­ments, al­though some can be rare and there­fore more ex­pen­sive to buy.

CALM­ING, REST­FUL, SLEEP-IN­DUC­ING

Other oils in the oral and woody fam­i­lies – in­clud­ing laven­der, va­le­rian and chamomile – are well known for their re­lax­ing and sleep-in­duc­ing qual­i­ties.

DETOX­I­FY­ING, CLEANS­ING

The oils associated with cleans­ing are le­mon balm, le­mon­grass, pep­per­mint, fen­nel and ju­niper. Sea­weed, roots and herbs are also well known for their detox­i­fy­ing and cleans­ing prop­er­ties.
