Essential Oil Blends

summer zest and summer zen


Individually hand blended essential oils designed to bring mind, body and soul into alignment. Available in a 10ml dropper bottle the blends are for use in a burner, mixing into a carrier oil or other base product for use on the skin or in the bath. Depending on the viscosity of the blend there will be around 200 drops which should last a frequent user around 2-3 months when using a oil burner. If adding to base products you will be able to make approximately ten 100ml bottles.

There are 3 choices of label material; gold vinyl, silver vinyl and brown kraft paper (please note, the latter may get easily marked with oil). If gifting a personal message can be added.

Seasonal blends: there is a choice of five. They all contain bergamot therefore transition well. And if you follow cyclical living these blends can be utilised with the corresponding energy of the lunar phase or your menstrual cycle.  

spring: elemi, cedarwood, helichrysum and bergamot. Grounding, calming, relaxing. Cyclical living: first quarter moon and follicular phase.

summer zest: litsea, melissa, bergamot and ginger. Uplifting, soothing, regulating. Cyclical living: full moon and ovulation. 

summer zen: ylang ylang, melissa, litsea and bergamot. Mellow, soothing, regulating. Cyclical living: full moon and ovulation. 

autumn: bergamot, benzoin, jasmine, and french lavender. Warming, sedative, restorative. Cyclical living: last quarter moon, luteal phase and peri-menopause.

winter: cypress, sandalwood, bergamot and vetivert. Centres, replenishes, brings tranquility. Cyclical living: new moon, menstruation and menopause. 

Treatment room blends: I have used the following blends within my massage practice for the past 20 years. 

muscle ease: rosemary, black pepper, ravensara and ginger. Warming, stimulating, alleviates muscular fatigue. Also ideal for winter ills.

relax & destress: french lavender, frankincense, sandalwood and neroli. Harmonising, comforting, rejuvenating. 

cherish: rose, sandalwood, jasmine and elemi. Balancing and nurturing, use during periods of change and crisis. Cyclical living: menstruation, labour and menopause.  

With the exception of relax & destress (after the first trimester) the blends should not be used in pregnancy. Cherish within a base can be used topically on the lower back and abdomen in the early stages of labour and continued postpartum when emotional support is needed.

Muscle ease should not be used by those with high blood pressure and epilepsy. It is not compatible with homeopathic remedies.
