In order to truly benefit from the numerous properties of essential oils, it is important to understand the ingredients that go into their make-up. Because impurities and contaminants can diminish the effectiveness of the oils and can even potentially cause harm, it is important to only purchase products from a trusted source. At Blended Valley, we are dedicated to providing you with only the purest and most carefully extracted aromatherapy oils crafted for you in the UK.
Below is just a small selection of the ingredients that go into our essential oils:
• Palmarosa essential oil. This oil is actually extracted from Cymbopogon martini grass, which grows in India and Nepal and is closely related to lemon grass. Often used as a substitute for the more expensive rose essential oil, palmarosa carries the same delicious scent. Healers value this oil for its antiviral and antibacterial qualities. It is also commonly used to treat skin and digestive ailments. On the emotional and spiritual level, palmarosa is frequently employed to give calm, reduce stress and to rebalance the heart chakra. This leads to an increased sense of compassion, love and an ability to forgive.
• Oregano essential oil. Derived from the oregano leaf, this essential oil can be an insect repellant and aids in the treatment of allergies, breathing problems and skin conditions. It has antiseptic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties. Use it during meditation to open the solar plexus chakra, leading to increased self-confidence.
• Nutmeg essential oil. This oil is an analgesic, antiseptic and antibacterial. It relieves indigestion and is thought to be an aphrodisiac. Spiritually, nutmeg helps you to balance your third eye and crown chakras and to see the world in an authentic way.
• Ylang-Ylang essential oil. Extracted from a tropical flower, this oil has energy boosting, aphrodisiac and stress-reducing properties. It is a slight sedative and also aids in nerve health. Spiritually, it can be used to open your root chakra and cleanse your aura.
• Violet leaf absolute. This absolute is an expectorant, pain reliever, anti-inflammatory and sleep aid. Spiritually, it can help you to connect with your crown chakra and the wisdom of the universe.
• Vetiver essential oil. Made from the roots of the vetiveria zizanoides grass, this oil is an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anxiety reducer that can also soothe some skin conditions. Spiritual uses include helping to balance the root chakra.
