Bergamot Essential Oil Information
Botanical name: Citrus bergamia ssp.  Bergamia
Country of Origin: Italy
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally farmed
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed, furocoumarin-free
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Greenish/yellow
Perfumery Note: Top

Aroma:  Most people know this aroma through Earl Grey tea, which is flavored with Bergamot oil. It is a fruity citrus oil of spicy-floral freshness.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Great aroma to balance the mind and regenerate. Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being.

Bergamot can be very phototoxic if the sensitizing component – furocoumarin – has not been removed from the oil.

AromaLand offers only furocoumarin-free Bergamot oil, since phototoxic pigmentation of the skin lasts for a long time, and we do not want anybody to have this experience.

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. Neroli, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Geranium, Palmarosa and many others.

AromaLand products with Bergamot Essential Oil: 

- Goddess and Inspiration are AromaLand blends that use this Essential Oil.

 

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 feel fresh and fight melancholy.

Add 10 drops of AromaLand's Goddess blend to 1 oz. of unscented body care to help for a luxurious 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.

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 who remained young).

In the factory, before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits is 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".

Specific Safety information: No known toxicity.

Use in low concentration in skin care since some individuals may react sensitive, and use only furocoumarin-free Bergamot oil. Otherwise severe phototoxic effects are possible, more so than with other citrus oils.

Color: Clear to slightly pale yellow/green
Perfumery Note: Top/Middle

Aroma: Very strong and medicinal smelling. Spicy-camphorous, warm scent. Cajeput is from the same family of plants as Tea Tree, yet harsher and more camphoraceous in aroma.

Citronella Java Essential Oil
Botanical name: Cymbopogon winterianus, also known as Maha pengiri
Country of Origin: Java
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Leaves
Color: Clear to pale yellow                     
Perfumery Note: Top
Aroma:  Light, fresh lemon scent with geranium-like notes. Very soft and round.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Citronella's properties are similar to Lemongrass. Its scent, however, is less appealing to many people. Commonly used in deodorizing and insect repelling products, and as a raw material for the perfume industry.

How to use it:  Both the Java Citronella and the organic Citronella are working well in blends designed to keep insects at bay, for example combining it with Cedarwood, Lavender, Patchouli or Eucalyptus. You can diffuse the blend in the great outdoors or add some to a candle (Extinguish the flame, add 2-3 drops to the wax pool, ignite again).

You can also add a few drops to the mopping water when mobbing your home.

For medicinal and healing related information, please consult Aromatherapy literature.

 

Blends well with: Citronella 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, Fennel, Tea Tree, resinous Essential Oils and many others.

Commonly used in place of Lemon Verbena and Melissa for economic reasons.

History:  When Citronella was first exhibited in London in 1851 it was introduced as "nard" oil, which is why it has been confused with Spikenard oil ever after. It has its place in cleaning products and insect repellents and the Java Citronella is an inexpensive oil frequently fractionated into perfume components (Citronellal, Geraniol).

Citronella is frequently used to substitute much more expensive Essential Oils, such as Lemon Verbena or Melissa officinalis, even though both aroma and properties do not compare.

Other related AromaLand oils:
Lemongrass – AromaLand's conventionally grown Lemongrass Essential Oil.
Lemongrass, organic – Grown under certified organic conditions.
Palmarosa – Another plant from the Cymbopogon family. However, the scent of Palmarosa is more reminiscent of Rose Geranium, and has been used to adulterate the precious Rose oil.
Citronella, organic – Compared to the Java Citronella, this one is more spicy and camphorous.
May Chang - Similar to Lemongrass, yet sweeter.

Specific Safety information:No known toxicity, do patch test if adding to body care products. Avoid in pregnancy.

Traditional folk medicine has used its cooling effect to ease feverish conditions. There is another historic reason why Eucalyptus is also commonly called "Fever tree":

When the British colonists came to Australia, they found that planting Eucalyptus groves helped to keep insects and thereby contagious diseases at bay. Being highly water-hungry plants, the Eucalyptus trees also aided in drying out waterlogged, marshy soils, turning them into arable land, and reducing the breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Today 75% of all trees grown in Australia are of the Eucalyptus family.

Other related AromaLand oils:

Eucalyptus Radiata Organic Essential Oil
Botanical name: Eucalyptus radiata
Country of Origin: Australia
Method of Cultivation: Certified organic
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Leaves
Color: Clear (vintage oils turn slightly yellow)
Perfumery Note: Top
Aroma: Fresh, cooling, with woody undertones. E. Radiata is often preferred over the common E. globulus, since it is softer, less harsh and therefore more pleasant to inhale.

Consistency: Liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Cooling, refreshing, energizing. This is the variety preferred by many Aromatherapists, because it is softer than E. globulus while still having the same well-being properties, and it is definitely the preferred choice around kids. Used in skin & hair care, for aromatherapeutic treatments, to deodorize and to keep insects at bay.

How to Use:

- Add 2-3 drops to a bowl of hot water to inhale the fragrant steam or use it in the sauna/steam bath.

- If scenting AromaFree body care or plant oils ("carrier oils"), use 5-10 drops per 1 oz. of product, less if you are making body care for children.

- Eucalyptus is great for massaging sore, aching muscles and as an energizing sports massage. Simply add up to 10 drops of Eucalyptus or AromaLand's Muscle cool blend to 1 oz. of plant oil ("carrier oil") or unscented massage oil/massage lotion.

Blends well with: Most herbs, like Thyme, Marjoram, Rosemary, and Lavender. Cedarwood. Lemon Myrtle, Frankincense, and others. Eucalyptus is a very dominant aroma that never takes the "back seat" in a blend.

 

History:  Both Western and Eastern medicine have used Eucalyptus for its support of the respiratory system, and it is a popular ingredient for cough and throat medicine and chest ointments.

Traditional folk medicine has used its cooling effect to ease feverish conditions. There is another historic reason why Eucalyptus is also commonly called "Fever tree":

When the British colonists came to Australia, they found that planting Eucalyptus groves helped to keep insects and thereby contagious diseases at bay. Being highly water-hungry plants, the Eucalyptus trees also aided in drying out waterlogged, marshy soils, turning them into arable land, and reducing the breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Today 75% of all trees grown in Australia are of the Eucalyptus family.

Lavender Bulgarian Essential Oil
Botanical name: Lavandula (or Lavendula) angustifolia; L. vera; L. officinalis
Country of Origin: Bulgaria
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally grown
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Flowers
Color: Clear to slightly pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Top/Middle

Aroma: Floral, herbaceous, fresh. Sweet with woody undertones and a distinct camphor note. A popular, soft, well-rounded scent, the Bulgarian Lavender is very floral, and our best selling Lavender.

Consistency: Thin, water-like liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Lavender offers a multitude of benefits and uses. It balances the mood, clears the mind, has a long tradition in skin & hair care as well as medicine and is used for many household solutions. One of the unique characteristics of Lavender Essential Oil is that it is not merely energizing or relaxing, but balancing. The scent of Lavender will rejuvenate and inspire a tired person and relax, soothe and slow down someone who is stressed or tense. Harness the powers of Lavender to add balance and serenity to our increasingly hectic lives. While pharmaceutical drugs are limited to either stimulating or sedating a person, Lavender – like many other remedies offered by nature – is able to re-establish the person's balanced, harmonious and natural state, without the use of synthetic chemicals.

How to use it: Apply a few drops to a tissue and inhale or place on your pillow for restful sleep. Add 5 drops to a hot bath for a blissful retreat. Add a few drops to your laundry rinse, your drawers, and the water reservoir of your iron for fresh smelling laundry. Two drops on your hair brush will rejuvenate hair and scalp. If scenting AromaFree body care or plant oils, use 5-10 drops per 1 oz. of product, less if you are making body care for children.

Blends well with: Most everything… really nice with citrus notes and florals. Add a bit of Vetiver or Patchouli for a warm base note. Clove will add spice. Geranium, Cedarwood, Clary Sage and Pine are related in character and make great blending partners.Mix Lavender and Frankincense for your bath and steam bath or try Lavender and Rose Geranium.

 

History:  The founder of Aromatherapy, R.-M. Gattefossé, started modern research of Essential Oils when he experienced the benefits of Lavender Essential Oil after applying it to a burn on his hand. Lavender has a long tradition as a beauty and well-being aid (Latin "lavare" means "to wash"!) and in Europe it is even used in hospitals to help patients relax.

It's origin may lay in Persia, but it is grown all over the world today, in an attempt to satisfy the ever growing demand for this wonderful oil. Unfortunately Lavender is frequently "cut" (stretched) with synthetic compounds, so make sure you buy your Lavender from a reputable source, committed to quality and purity.

Lavender has a long tradition as a beauty and well-being aid (Latin "lavare" means "to wash"!) and in Europe it is even used in hospitals to help patients relax.

It's origin may lay in Persia, but it is grown all over the world today, in an attempt to satisfy the ever growing demand for this wonderful oil. Unfortunately Lavender is frequently "cut" (stretched) with synthetic compounds, so make sure you buy your Lavender from a reputable source, committed to quality and purity.

Aromatherapy properties: Lavender offers a multitude of benefits and uses. It balances the mood, clears the mind, has a long tradition in skin & hair care as well as medicine and is used for many household solutions. One of the unique characteristics of Lavender Essential Oil is that it is not merely energizing or relaxing, but balancing. The scent of Lavender will rejuvenate and inspire a tired person and relax, soothe and slow down someone who is stressed or tense. Harness the powers of Lavender to add balance and serenity to our increasingly hectic lives.

Add a few drops to your laundry rinse, your drawers, and the water reservoir of your iron for fresh smelling laundry. Two drops on your hair brush will rejuvenate hair and scalp.

Botanical name: Backhousia citriodora
Country of Origin: Australia
Method of Cultivation: Certified organic
Method of Extraction: Steam distilled
Part extracted: Leaves
Color: Clear to slightly pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Top/Middle

Aroma: Fine, rounded lemon scent with mild spicy, green undertones.

Consistency: Thin, water-like liquid

Aromatherapy properties: Medicinal with a large range of applications. Said to be stimulating in low quantity and calming at normal strength. Refreshing and rejuvenating. Its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy, clears the mind. It is also a great purifying oil. Lemon Myrtle is one of the prime odor cutters, combining strong anti-"bug" activity with a very strong, fresh, clean aroma.

How to use it:
- Add 2-3 drops to a bowl of hot water for a purifying steam treatment.

- To keep sanity in the face of an insect invasion, blend Lemon Myrtle with Patchouli or Cedarwood to your liking and add 5 drops of the blend to 1 oz. of unscented body care, which could either be a lotion or a carrier oil.

- Add 10 drops to 2 oz. of distilled water in a mister, shake well before each use, spray liberally to combat bad odors.

- Lemon Myrtle has been used to un-invite your dog's fleas and help with mange. Use a spray like the one above. Do not use Essential Oils on cats.

- Add freshness and purifying powers to the floor washing water by adding a few drops of Lemon Tea Tree.

 

Blends well with: Most oils, giving them a fresh "lift". Lavender, Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Rose, Sandalwood, Frankincense, Geranium, Fennel, Tea Tree (altering its "medicinal" aroma), Patchouli, resinous Essential Oils and many others. Use sparingly, so this vibrant aroma will not overpower the other oils in the blend.

History:  Well known to Australian therapists for decades, this is a very newly recognized Essential Oil in the US. Also known as Sweet Verbena Tree. Recent research indicates that it may be even more powerful than the famous Tea Tree oil.

Lemon Essential Oil
Botanical name: Citrus limonum
Country of Origin: Italy
Method of Cultivation: Conventionally farmed
Method of Extraction: Cold pressed
Part extracted: Peel of the fruit
Color: Pale yellow
Perfumery Note: Top

Aroma:  Light, fresh citrus scent. Because of its color, and its warm, cheerful energy some people call Lemon Essential Oil "the sunshine oil".

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. A study conducted with Lemon oil found that typing errors were reduced when Lemon was diffused in the office.

In moderation, Lemon is also an effective skin care ingredient for oily and inflamed skin.

It is commonly used in the kitchen by adding Lemon rind to dishes (Lemon Essential Oil can replace dry Lemon rinds, but use very sparingly and from certified organic farming). It is also a popular ingredient in household cleaners because it smells clean and aids in the cleaning.

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 Lemon rind – desserts, salads, and pastries.

Add 9 sdrops of AromaLand's Oily Skin or Acne blend to 1 oz. of unscented body care to help problem skin.

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: The Lemon tree originates in Asia, but about 50 varieties are widely cultivated today. Popular flavoring agent and perfume ingredient. Indispensable in the kitchen.

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:
Lemon, 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.
Lime – With a fresh, green/bitter aroma, Lime is very similar to Lemon Essential Oil.

The following oils also have a distinct lemon-like aroma: Lemon Myrtle, Lemon-scented Tea Tree, Lemongrass, Lemongrass Organic, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Citronella Java.

AromaLand products with Lemon Essential Oil: 
- Angel, Inspiration, Refreshing, Sweet Embrace, Firming, Toning, Theraclear, Acne and Oily Skin are AromaLand blends that use this Essential Oil.

- The Rosemary & Mint line of products in the Blue Collection also contains Lemon Essential Oil.

- Goddess, Precious Flowers, Sensual, Romance, La Femme sampler packs.

- Theraclear bath salt

- Clearing Rebalance Facial Peel-off Mask

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

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

Commonly used in place of Lemon Verbena and Melissa for economic reasons.

 

History: Lemongrass is frequently used to substitute much more expensive Essential Oils, such as Lemon Verbena or Melissa officinalis, this is likely the reason why it is one of the 10 best-selling Essential oils in the world.
