Angelica Root Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Angelica Archangelica
Country of Origin: Hungary
Method of Cultivation: Harvested from wild grown plants
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Roots
Color: Colorless to pale yellow, turns darker with age
Perfumery Note: Middle/base

Aroma: Rootsy/woody, herbaceous. Bitter, sweet and earthy. Balsamic, spicy. Long-lasting, often used as a fixative.

Consistency: Liquid. The potency and incredible fragrancing power of Angelica Root Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

Aromatherapy properties: Restorative, tonic. Stimulating in small doses, sedating in large doses. Warming, comforting, aphrodisiac. Purifying. Grounding

How to use it:Sniffing directly from the bottle may help curb an appetite. Very satisfying, 0 calories!

 

Blends well with: Angelica Root is a valuable addition to aromatherapy blends that lack warmth, spice and "fullness". Easily overpowering and a skin irritant, use in very small amounts.

Great with all the aphrodisiac oils like the floral notes, Patchouli, Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cedarwood. Clary Sage and citrus oils. Juniper Berry, Eucalyptus, Rosemary.

AromaLand products with Basil Essential Oil:

Past Tense i/J is an Aromatherapy blend that contains this oil. It is blended with long-lasting Jojoba to make sure it is properly dosed.

History: Ancient medical remedy. As the botanical name indicates it was always considered an "Angel's herb" with a wide range of applications. Originating in Spain, Angelica Root was one of the few spices that were actually exported from Europe to the Orient. It was used as a common flavoring and apothecary drug, and was considered to contain magical powers. It was referred to as the "root of the Holy Ghost". It is also flavoring Cointreau liqueur.

Specific Safety information: Powerful oil and photosensitizing. Apply to skin in very small amounts only. Oil is said to stimulate uterine contractions, so avoid during pregnancy. Also not recommended around young children and diabetics. Use in moderation. GRAS (Generally Regarded As S afe) approved by the FDA as food flavor.

Bay Laurel Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Laurus nobilis
Country of Origin: France
Method of Cultivation: Harvested from wild growing plants
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Leaves
Color: Clear to pale yellow/green
Perfumery Note: Middle

Aroma: Powerful, spicy-medicinal odor, just like the Bay leaves used in cooking.

Consistency: Thin liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Stress-relieving, calming. Both uplifting and grounding, like so many of our wonderful Essential Oils. Said to clear mental confusion and clarify thought processes.

How to use it: Add 9 drops to 1 oz. of unscented body or hair care product to enhance their properties. Great for toning treatments and hair care. However, since dosing too high can result in sensitization, you may prefer using AromaLand's Rosemary & Mint body care products or Bay Laurel & Mint Foot & Leg lotion, who already contain Bay Laurel in their Essential Oil blend.

You can use this oil for cooking, in any recipe that calls for the dried leaves. Since one drop represents the Essential Oil of an entire handful of leaves, make sure you blend them with a carrier oil prior to using in the kitchen… olive oil, canola or grape seed oil are great choices (3 drops per 1 oz. of oil).

 

Blends well with: Pine, Cypress and Juniper, Lavender. Frankincense and Clary Sage would be good partners in a spiritual/meditative blend. Combine it with Rosemary for an high-powered study blend. Citrus oils and other spices are also very nice. Please use in moderation, since it is easily overpowering other aromas and can make you feel drowsy.

History: Bay Laurels were once used to crown Greek scholars, which is the historic background of the academic "baccalaureate" title. It was also used to adorn the victors in ancient Greece and Rome. The priestesses at Delphi sat over the burning fumes to increase their prophetic visions. Commonly used as a food flavoring, for example for stews, pickles, sauces.

Other related AromaLand oils:

Allspice – This oil, derived from the culinary spice tasting like clove, cinnamon and pepper, is distantly related to the Bay Laurel tree.

AromaLand products with this Essential Oil:

- All Rosemary & Mint and Bay Laurel & Mint products of our Blue Collection body care line.

- Muscle Warm, Toning, and Theratone are Essential Oil blends that use this Essential Oil.

- Theratone bath salts.

Specific Safety information: No known toxicity, non-irritant, causes sensitization in some people if used in high concentration. Use in moderation due to the narcotic properties of its main ingredient, methyl eugenol. Avoid in pregnancy and use very diluted only.

Birch Sweet Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Betula lenta
Country of Origin: Canada
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Inner bark of the tree
Color: Pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Middle

Aroma: Like the common Wintergreen candy flavor. Intense sweet-woody aroma, nearly fruit-like.

Consistency: Liquid

How to use it: Blend 9 drops of Muscle Warm, Muscle Cool or Theratone with 1 oz. of unscented lotion or massage oil.

Blends well with: Ylang Ylang, Mints, Marjoram/Sweet, and Vanilla.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Wintergreen – This oil, which is very similar to Sweet Birch in composition and aroma, is derived from a small evergreen herb.

 

History: Wintergreen and Sweet Birch oil, both nearly identical in chemical composition and aroma are both traditional folk remedies. Both Native Americans and early settlers used to cut the inner layer of the Birch bark in strips and eat it. It was also used to make tea that was considered a general stimulant.

This tradition has led to the discovery of Methyl Salicylate, main ingredient of Birch and Wintergreen oil, as a pain reliever. Methyl Salicylate is now commercially produced and known under the name Aspirin etc. However, the use of both Wintergreen and Birch is potentially toxic, and recommended for professional use only.

Because of the familiar, candy-like aroma there have been cases of children ingesting this oil.All Essential Oils should be safely stored out of the reach of children!!

Specific Safety information: Use only in moderation, possibly toxic, irritant and sensitizing. Recommended for use by medical professional only. Do not use over extended period or time, if you are pregnant, with children, etc. Make sure you look it away safely because children have been known to drink this oil because of its candy-like flavor.

AromaLand products with Wintergreen/Birch Essential Oil:
- Theratone bath salt

- Muscle Warm, Muscle Cool, Theratone are Essential Oil blends with this Essential Oil.

Chamomile Blue Essential Oil
Botanical name: Matricaria recutita
Country of Origin: Spain
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Blue to greenish/brown, depending on the age
Perfumery Note: Middle

Aroma:  Very similar to the warm, herbal quality of Chamomile tea, yet more energetic than the German Chamomile. This oil is derived from the same species as Chamomile German, yet it is grown in Spain and steam distilled. It is very warm, sweet, comforting, slightly bitter and somewhat green.

The potency and incredible fragrancing power of Chamomile Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

Consistency: Viscous liquid.

How to use it:
- Add 3 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat.

- Add 2 drop to 1 oz. of olive oil or unscented cream for a homemade and highly effective diaper rash remedy.

- If scenting AromaFree body care or plant oils, use 9 drops per 1 oz. of product. Alternatively, use up to 9 drops of Therasmooth, Muscle Warm, Take Five and Sensitive Skin blends from the AromaLand line of therapeutic blends.

- If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your body care or bath according to your liking.

 

Aromatherapy properties: Relaxing, soothing, calming the nerves without being a sedative (great for kids!), very gentle oil for many skin conditions, digestive problems and stress. Great skincare properties, soothing irritation and balancing the skin's functions. Its mildness, as well as its proven effectiveness makes it a universal remedy, even in baby care.

Blends well with: Geranium, Lavender, Rose, Neroli, Marjoram, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Rosewood, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang and others. Chamomile adds a soft, warm note to a blend.

History: This herb has been used for medicinal purposes and skin therapy for a long time, in particular in Europe. German/Blue Chamomile and Roman Chamomile have very similar properties, however the German/Blue oil is better because it has a higher content of Azulene.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Chamomile, German – Reminiscent of the warm, herbal quality of Chamomile tea, this oil carries a lot of mild herbaceous base notes. 
Chamomile, Roman – More fruity and somewhat apple-like in aroma, this oil is very fragrant and shares a lot of the properties of the other Chamomile species.

Grapefruit Organic Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Citrus paradisii
Country of Origin: Israel
Method of Cultivation: Certified organic
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Yellow
Perfumery Note: Middle

Aroma:  Fruity, bitter citrus scent, reminiscent of the peel of the fruit.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Cleansing and satisfying. Popular oil to help with weight loss. Stimulating and refreshing, uplifting and nourishing positive emotions. 

Grapefruit's aroma inspires and clears the mind.

Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being.

How to use it: Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home. Sniff directly from the bottle to curb appetite.

Add 10 drops of AromaLand's Toning, Theratone, or Theraclear to 1 oz. of unscented body care to help with toning treatments: Add to shower gel and gently brush the areas you want to firm before rinsing, or add to lotion or massage oil for a stimulating massage.

Citrus Essential Oils are among the few Essential Oils with a limited shelf life. Keep your citrus oils away from heat and direct sunlight and in tightly closed containers. Your fridge would be great. Try using them in 6 months after purchase. Older oils may not be appropriate for medicinal or skincare purposes, but can still add citrus-power to a diffuser blend.

 

Blends well with: Citrus Essential Oils blend well with a lot of different oils, "lifting" a blend to make it appear more energetic and lively. Lavender, Neroli, Rose, Geranium, Fennel, Palmarosa, Essential Oils of spices and many others.

History: When peeling a citrus fruit, you may experience the Essential Oil freely spraying from the peel when applying pressure. Squirting the Essential Oil into a candle flame is a nice winter activity that fascinates children (and those that remained young) for long periods of time.

Before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits are carefully removed and the Essential Oil extracted from the glands contained in the outer layer of the peel. This is the process behind the term "cold pressed" and it is obvious that any chemical deposits applied to the skin of the fruit during conventional farming may leech into the oil. If you are using citrus Essential Oil for skin care or cooking, we strongly recommend our certified organic citrus Essential Oils.

Other related AromaLand oils:

Jasmine Absoulute Information
Botanical name: Jasminum grandiflorum
Country of Origin: India
Method of Cultivation: Harvested from wild growing plants.
Method of Extraction: Solvent extracted
Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Dark orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/Base
Aroma:  Floral, rich, sweet and warm, exquisitely exotic and graceful. Some describe it as "tea-like", and its dried flowers are used to flavor black tea.

Jasmine is called the King of Flowers (Rose being the Queen), and indeed this is probably the most masculine of all the floral aromas, especially the Jasmine Sambac, which is more musky and spicy than the Jasmine Absolute. Jasmine grandiflorum is softer, more gentle and floral than Jasmine Sambac, which is more mysterious and exotic.

Jasmine grandiflorum is more widely known and is frequently found in gardens all over the world. It blooms in the early dawn, whereas Jasmine Sambac blooms at night.

The potency and incredible fragrancing power of Jasmine Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

Consistency: Slightly viscous liquid.

Jasmine has a long tradition of being used in childbirth as a relaxing and supportive remedy. Jasmine is valued in skincare in aiding dry, sensitive and irritated skin.

Blends well with: Most oils. Very suitable to make an aroma more round and complete.

To create a romantic mood, try blending it with the other great aphrodisiacs - Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Rosewood, Patchouli, Vetiver, Rose etc. Also nice: Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin & Neroli. Lavender and Geranium, Frankincense and Clary Sage.

Jasmine Sambac Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Jasminum sambac
Country of Origin: India
Method of Cultivation: Harvested from wild growing plants.
Method of Extraction: Solvent extracted
Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Dark orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/Base
Aroma:  Floral, rich, sweet and warm, exquisitely exotic.

Jasmine is called the King of Flowers (Rose being the Queen), and indeed this is probably the most masculine of all the floral aromas. Jasmine Sambac is more musky and spicy than the Jasmine Absolute. Jasmine grandiflorum is softer, more gentle and floral than Jasmine Sambac, which is more mysterious and exotic.

Jasmine grandiflorum is more widely known and is frequently found in gardens all over the world. It blooms in the early dawn, whereas Jasmine Sambac blooms at night.

The potency and incredible fragrancing power of Jasmine Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

Consistency: Slightly viscous liquid.

How to use it: Add a few drops to a diffuser for a relaxing, feminine aroma climate.

- Add 3 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat.

- If scenting AromaFree body care or plant oils, use up to 3 drops per 1 oz. of product. Alternatively, use up to 10 drops Bamboo Forest, Goddess or Feminine Balance blends from the AromaLand line of therapeutic blends.

If using an aromalamp or AromaLand's Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away – but do not overheat the lamp dish.

 

Aromatherapy properties: Relaxing, intoxicating, warming. Great aphrodisiac , also helps to find restful sleep. Jasmine has a long tradition of being used in childbirth as a relaxing and supportive remedy. Jasmine is valued in skincare in aiding dry, sensitive and irritated skin.

Blends well with: Most oils. Very suitable to make an aroma more round and complete.

To create a romantic mood, try blending it with the other great aphrodisiacs - Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Rosewood, Patchouli, Vetiver, Rose etc. Also nice: Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin & Neroli. Lavender and Geranium, Frankincense and Clary Sage.

Mandarin Orange Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Citrus reticulata var. mandarin
Country of Origin: Italy
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Yellow-Orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/top

Aroma:  Warm, fresh citrus scent, radiant, fruity and tangy. Although closely related, Mandarin Orange is rounder and softer in aroma than Tangerine.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Refreshing and rejuvenating. Its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy, clears the mind. Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being. Very comforting/soothing and warming..

In moderation, Mandarine Orange is an effective skin care ingredient, but avoid large concentrations due to phototoxic reactions.

Mandarin Orange Essential Oil can be a great discovery in the kitchen. Use very sparingly in sauces, dressings, pastries and desserts. We recommend certified organic Mandarin Orange.

How to use it:
- Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home.

- Add a few drops to the water when washing dishes or cleaning the house.

- Add very sparingly to food for an exciting Mandarin Orange flavor – desserts, salads, and pastries.

- Citrus Essential Oils are among the few Essential Oils with a limited shelf life. Keep your citrus oils away from heat and direct sunlight and in tightly closed containers. Your fridge would be great. Try using them in 6 months after purchase. Older oils may not be appropriate for medicinal or skincare purposes, but can still add citrus-power to a diffuser blend.

- Try making your own Gingerbread honey or syrup and adding it to tea or desserts. This is not only delicious but helps to soothe the stomach as well.

The following is also a wonderful recipe for such a honey, great also for a homemade gift:

To 2 oz. of maple syrup or 2 oz. of honey add:
3 drops of Ginger Essential Oil
1 drop Cardamom
1 drop Cinnamon bark
3 drops Vanilla Essential Oil, pure
8 drops of certified organic Orange or Mandarin Orange oil

 

Blends well with: Citrus Essential Oils blend well with a lot of different oils, "lifting" a blend to make it appear more energetic and lively. Lavender, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Fennel, Tea Tree, resinous Essential Oils and many others.

History: It is said that this fruit was a traditional gift for the Mandarins of China, hence the name.

Sometimes Mandarin Orange is listed as a synonym for Tangerine. The aromas however are distinctly different, with Tangerine being more candy-like and temperamental. As a fruit, Tangerine is larger than Mandarin Orange and rounder, with a yellower skin.

When peeling a citrus fruit, you may experience the Essential Oil freely spraying from the peel when applying pressure. Squirting the Essential Oil into a candle flame is a nice winter activity that fascinates children, and those young at heart.

Before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits is carefully removed and the Essential Oil extracted from the glands that are located in the outer layer of the peel. This is the process behind the term "cold pressed" and it is obvious that any chemical deposits applied to the skin of the fruit during conventional farming may leech into the oil. If you are using citrus Essential Oil for skin care or cooking, we strongly recommend our certified organic citrus Essential Oils, which would mean using the organic Mandarin Orange.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Tangerine - This oil smells just like Mandarin Orange. However, Tangerine is more candy-like and energetic.
Mandarin Orange, organic – This certified organic oil is the recommended choice for use in the kitchen and in skincare, because it does not contain contaminants.

- Cherry Blossom, Enchantment, Indulgence, Inspiration, Mother Nature, Take Five and Therasmooth are AromaLand blends that use this Essential Oil.

- Goddess sampler pack.

Specific Safety information:No known toxicity. GRAS (Generally R egarded As Safe) approved by the FDA as food flavor.

Avoid high concentration in skin care, phototoxic effect possible.

Marjoram Spanish Essential Oil
Botanical name: Thymus mastichina, Thyme cineole type.
Country of Origin: Spain 
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Whole plant
Color:Clear to pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Middle

Aroma: Spicy, warm, herbaceous, much more camphoraceous and medicinal smelling than the Sweet Marjoram.

Consistency: Thin liquid

How to use it:
- Add a 3 drops or 6 drops of our Tranquillite blend to 1 oz. massage oil or unscented lotion to massage sore, aching muscles.

- Adding just 5 drops to a warm bath brings welcome stimulation to sore, stiff and overworked muscles. Also try our Calming, Take Five and Tranquillite blends for this purpose. Blend the Essential Oil with some Half and Half, honey, vinegar or AromaLand's Coconut Emulsifier before adding it to the water, so that the droplets will dissolve in the water and not float concentrated at the surface.

For most applications, like cooking, diffusion etc. Sweet Marjoram is preferred.

Blends well with: Orange, Lavender, Rosewood, Frankincense, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Clary Sage, Basil, Thyme, Cypress, Elemi, Chamomile, spices like Nutmeg or Cardamom and many more. However, Sweet Marjoram is a more valuable aroma ingredient with similar characteristics.

 

History: This Marjoram is actually wild growing Thyme. However, since it is commonly referred to as Wild Marjoram, we'll continue this tradition.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Marjoram/Sweet – Closely related to Oregano, yet less irritating and milder.
Marjoram/Wild, Spanish, organic – Softer and somewhat finer than our conventionally grown Spanish Marjoram.
Oregano, organic – Very powerful oil, distilled from the culinary herb. Undiluted, needs to be blended with a plant oil for most applications.
Oregano in Olive Oil, organic – This Oregano is already blended with Olive Oil and ready-to-use for many applications.
Thyme Borneol – Powerful oil in the hands of an experienced Aromatherapist. Not for home use.
Thyme Geraniol – More fragrant, less irritant, softer than many of the other Thyme chemotypes.
Thyme Linalol – Non-irritating Thyme oil, yet very well suited for bacterial infections, digestive disorders and nervous exhaustion.
White Thyme – Quite camphorous and harsh, for use by experienced Aromatherapist. Derived via re-distillation from Red Thyme.

May Chang / Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil
Botanical name: Litsea cubeba
Country of Origin: China
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Fruits
Color: Pale yellow                     
Perfumery Note: Middle/top

Aroma:  Light, fresh lemon aroma, intense, very fruity. Similar to Lemongrass, yet sweeter.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Refreshing and rejuvenating. Stimulating and balancing. Its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy, clears the mind. Popular skin care ingredient for oily, mature and inflamed skin (in moderation).

How to use it:  
- Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home.

- Add 5 drops of AromaLand's Firming or Goddess blend to 1 oz. of unscented body care.

- Add 2-3 drops to a bath, after blending it with an emulsifying agent, like AromaLand's Coconut emulsifier, honey, half & half. Since May Chang can irritate the skin undiluted, do not add this oil directly to your bath – pure Essential Oils do not blend with water.

Blends well with: May Chang/Litsea cubeba blends well with a lot of different oils, "lifting" a blend to make it appear more energetic and lively. Lavender, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Palmarosa, Vetiver, Fennel, Tea Tree, resinous Essential Oils and many others. At the same time it can "anchor" the citrus Essential Oils, which tend to be rather fleeting.

 

History: Widely used in the perfume and soap industry for its soft lemon-scented aroma. Long history in Chinese medicine, being a plant native to China. The fruits resemble little berries that grow on stems, just like pepper – it is not related to the pepper family, however, but belongs to the same family as the Bay Laurel tree, Rosewood and Cinnamon (Lauraceae).

Other related AromaLand oils:
Lemongrass – Indian Lemongrass, harvested from wild growing plants.
Lemongrass, organic – Grown under certified organic conditions.
Citronella – Stronger and harsher in scent than Lemongrass. Commonly used for deodorizing and insect repelling purposes. Sometimes used in place of Lemon Verbena or Melissa, even though it cannot do justice to any of them.
Citronella, organic – Compared to the Java Citronella, this one is more spicy and camphorous.
Melissa, organic –
This oil was called the Elixir of Life by Paracelsus.
Melissa Essence – This is actually a blend, since it is Citronella oil, distilled over the leaves of Melissa.

AromaLand products with Lemongrass Essential Oil: 
- Inspiration, Refreshing, Firming and Goddess are AromaLand blends that incorporate this oil.

Specific Safety information:No known toxicity, non-irritating. Use in low concentration only in skin care since some individuals may react sensitive.

Melissa Essence Essential Oil
Botanical name: Melissa officinalis and Cymbopogon nardus, distilled together
Country of Origin: Java and France
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Entire herb
Color: Pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Middle/Top

Aroma: Lemony, light & fresh, green. Harsher and less subtle than pure Melissa.

Consistency: Thin liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Strengthening and revitalizing, while soothing and calming. Protecting.

How to use it:
Use this oil wherever you would like the powerful aroma of Melissa but the high cost does not make sense… candles, soaps, incense, etc. Use 9 drops per 1 oz. of carrier base for skin application.

 

Blends well with: Citrus oils and floral notes, Lavender, Clary Sage, Geranium, etc.

History: The yield of Melissa during distillation is extremely low, which makes it one of the most expensive Essential Oils. Melissa Essence is actually a blend, since it is Citronella oil, distilled over the leaves of Melissa.

Other related AromaLand oils:

Melissa, organic – Paracelsus called this oil the Elixir of Life.

Specific Safety information: No known toxicity. However, due to the potency of this oil, use in dilution < 1% (6 drops per 1 oz. of carrier oil)

Melissa Organic Essential Oil
Botanical name: Melissa officinalis
Country of Origin: France
Method of Cultivation: Certified organic
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Entire herb
Color: Pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Middle/Top

Aroma: Lemony, light & fresh, green. Strong.

Consistency: Thin liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Strengthening and revitalizing, while soothing and calming. Protecting.

The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

How to use it:
- Because it is one of the very pricey oils, Melissa is commonly used only for distinct well-being purposes. I personally use it to stop fever blisters in their tracks… as I feel the distinct, burning itch that signals the onset of a sore, I dab on Melissa i/J every few hours, and that has stopped them reliably. You have to start doing this very early though, and keep doing it until they have given up.

- Due to the potency of this oil, use in dilution < 1% (9 drops per 1 oz. of carrier oil)

- If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your body care or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads – Car diffuser, Scent ball, Spa Scenter – or nebulizers. If using an aromalamp or AromaLand's Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away – but do not overheat the lamp dish.

 

Blends well with: Citrus oils and floral notes, Lavender, Clary Sage, Geranium, etc.

History: Also known as Lemon Balm, Melissa is one of the earliest known medicinal herbs. Paracelsus called it the Elixir of Life. It has a long tradition of use for nervous disorders, and reviving the life energy in a depressed or emotionally depleted person. It is an important ingredient of the French Eau de Melisse de Carmes and the German Klosterfrau Melissengeist, both aromas that were used as nerve tonics.

The yield of Melissa during distillation is extremely low, which makes it one of the most expensive Essential Oils. Unfortunately Melissa is frequently adulterated with other lemon-type aromas like Lemongrass, Lemon or Citronella. However, AromaLand offers the genuine, therapeutic, pure Melissa Essential Oil.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Melissa Essence – This is actually a blend, since it is Citronella oil, distilled over the leaves of Melissa.

Specific Safety information: No known toxicity. GRAS (G enerally Regarded As Safe) approved by the FDA as food flavor. Some people report sensitization and dermal irritation, yet this may be a reaction to Citronella or Lemongrass, since this is a frequently adulterated oil.

However, due to the potency of this oil, use in dilution < 1% (6 drops per 1 oz. of carrier oil)

Aroma:  Floral, soft, rich. Delicate and warm, with a fresh citrus quality. The potency and incredible fragrancing power of this Essential Oil make it a great investment, even though it is one of the pricier oils. If you find it hard to dose the pure oil correctly (it is incredibly strong and intense!), or shy away from the cost, start with Essential Oils blended with Jojoba oil, classified as "i/J" ("in Jojoba").

Consistency: Liquid.

How to use it: Add a few drops to a diffuser for a relaxing, fresh aroma climate.

- Add 5 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat.

- If scenting AromaFree body care or plant oils, use up to 6 drops per 1 oz. of product. Alternatively, use up to 10 drops Dry Skin or Sensitive Skin blends from the AromaLand line of therapeutic blends.

- If you are purchasing this Essential Oil blended with Jojoba, increase the number of drops you add to your bodycare or bath according to your liking. You can use oils blended with Jojoba in a diffuser, but it is not recommended in diffusers that work with cotton pads – Car diffuser, Scent ball, Spa Scenter – or nebulizers. If using an aromalamp or AromaLand's Aromashell it will leave an oily residue that can be washed away – but do not overheat the lamp dish.

 

Aromatherapy properties: Hypnotic and sedative. Great aphrodisiac. Uplifting, and easing the mind, restoring ones energy. Great nerve tonic. Supreme skincare ingredient.

Blends well with: Bergamot or Lime, Lavender, Rosemary, various spice oils, Hyssop, Clary Sage and others.

Orange Brazil 5x (five fold) Essential Oil
Botanical name: Citrus sinensis
Country of Origin: Brazil
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally farmed
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Orange
Perfumery Note: Middle/top

Aroma:  Warm, fresh citrus scent, radiant, fruity and tangy. This oil smells just like fresh orange peel, yet is much more concentrated and therefore stronger in aroma.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Refreshing and rejuvenating. Its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy, clears the mind. Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being. Very comforting.

In moderation, Orange is an effective skin care ingredient, but avoid large concentrations.

Orange rind and aroma is a popular ingredient in the kitchen. Orange Essential Oil can be a great alternative, but use very sparingly and from certified organic farming.

It is also a popular ingredient in household cleaners because it smells clean and aids the cleaning. Orange Essential Oil is the main ingredient in certain products like Goo-gone, and great to remove stickers from windows etc. Please be aware that Orange Essential Oil may affect plastic and synthetic surfaces.

How to use it:  

Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home.

Add a few drops to the water when washing dishes or cleaning the house.

Add very sparingly to food that you would otherwise prepare with Orange rind – desserts, salads, and pastries.

Add 9 drops of AromaLand's Buddha or Calming blend to 1 oz. of unscented body care for a soothing experience.

Citrus Essential Oils are among the few Essential Oils with a limited shelf life. Keep your citrus oils away from heat and direct sunlight and in tightly closed containers. Your fridge would be great. Try using them in 6 months after purchase. Older oils may not be appropriate for medicinal or skincare purposes, but can still add citrus-power to a diffuser blend.

 

Blends well with: Citrus Essential Oils blend well with a lot of different oils, "lifting" a blend to make it appear more energetic and lively. Lavender, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Fennel, Tea Tree, resinous Essential Oils and many others.

History: When peeling a citrus fruit, you may experience the Essential Oil freely spraying from the peel when applying pressure. Squirting the Essential Oil into a candle flame is a nice winter activity that fascinates children, and those young at heart.

Before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits is carefully removed and the Essential Oil extracted from the glands that are located in the outer layer of the peel. This is the process behind the term "cold pressed" and it is obvious that any chemical deposits applied to the skin of the fruit during conventional farming may leech into the oil. If you are using citrus Essential Oil for skin care or cooking, we strongly recommend our certified organic citrus Essential Oils.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Orange, organic – Since the Essential Oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit, we strongly recommend using certified organic Lemon Essential Oil for skin care and food applications.
Orange, California – A regular strength, non-concentrated Orange oil made from conventionally grown fruits.

- Buddha, Calming, Celebrate, Cherry Blossom, Citrus, Egyptian, Enchantment, Energizing Herb, Energizing Mint, Exotic, Relaxing, Revitalizing, Tranquillite, Feminine Balance and Past Tense are AromaLand blends that use this Essential Oil.

Specific Safety information: No known toxicity. GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) approved by the FDA as food flavor.

Use in low concentration only in skin care since some individuals may react sensitive. Avoid exposing the skin to direct sunlight after using this oil in skin care – phototoxic effect possible.
