Have you ever noticed how certain aromas can take your mind to a specific time and place? Maybe a favourite family recipe. Or perhaps that seaside holiday with a memory so vivid you can almost feel the sun on your skin. That’s why essential oils have been so widely used throughout history.
Your sense of smell creates an amazing reaction that begins when receptor cells in your nose send electrical impulses that activate the parts of your brain associated with memory, emotion, mood and so much more.
So what are essential oils?
Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. The oils capture the plant’s scent and flavor, or “essence.” Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.
Essential oils are obtained through distillation or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing. Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that’s ready for use.
The way the oils are made is important, as essential oils obtained through chemical processes are not considered true essential oils.
Of course, the highest quality essential oils come from the best possible plants. That’s why Forever Essential Oils only come from plants that are grown and harvested in ideal conditions. Forever sources its pure oils from all over the globe to ensure conditions are just right to provide the most potent aromatic qualities.
Each essential oil note offers different benefits depending on how the sense of smell and brain work together. Essential oil notes are often combined to create synergistic blends for maximum benefit.
Forever Essential Oils Lavender with lavender grown and harvested in Bulgaria, where ideal growing conditions allow for oils with high levels of linalyl acetate, which gives lavender its fruity, sweet aroma to calm, soothe, relax and rejuvenate.
Forever Essential Oils Lemon is made with lemons sourced from Argentina and California. The lemons used are harvested by hand and carefully cured until they reach the perfect ripeness. This ensures the fruit is juicer and more aromatic, producing potent essential oils to refresh, energise, invigorate and revitalise.
Forever Essential Oils Peppermint is made with leaves harvested from the foothills of the Himalayas in India, where the climate and soil yield potent, top quality peppermint. The result is an essential oil that cools, refreshes, clears the mind and invigorates.
Forever Essential Oils Defense is a blend of seven of the highest quality therapeutic oils from six countries around the world. Clove bud and cinnamon bark oil from Madagascar, orange from the United States, frankincense from Somalia, rosemary from Hungary, eucalyptus oil from Australia and juniper berry from Nepal
How to use Essential oils
Essential oils offer a versatile way to bring the power of aromatherapy into your home or enjoy the benefits on the go. Just as there are varying aromas and blends to promote specific moods or benefits, there is more than one way to experience the power of aromatherapy.
Diffusing essential oils creates an aromatic mist by distributing essential oil molecules into the air to infuse your environment with the powerful benefits of aromatherapy. There are many different types of diffusers to suit different styles, potency of scent and personal taste.
Look for a diffuser that nebulises the oils by using cool air or diffuses the oils in water. Exposing pure essential oils to heat can affect their chemical composition and make them less effective.
Not sure if diffusing is for you? There are plenty of other ways to enjoy the aromatherapy benefits of essential oils. Oils can be added to an open bowl with or without water, placed on a cloth and added to your dryer to infuse the scent into clothing, added to a spray bottle with water and sprayed throughout your home and so much more.
