Welcome Spring? I’m hard pressed to use an exclamation point as we haven’t celebrated a real Spring day yet! With the rain continuing it’s really putting a… damper on our springtime activities. Fortunately, there is a way to bring Spring indoors in a fun and great smelling way!
Making essential oils can be extremely expensive – it can take hundreds and even thousands of pounds of plant material to make a pound of essential oil!
You all know I’m a BIG essential oil user and that the 5 Dog Farm essential oil company of choice is Plant Therapy. Well, our friends at Plant Therapy just came out with the fix to my springtime blues. A lovely Spring Blends set that contains all I needed to get my attitude back on track.
The Spring Blends Set contains 10 ml each of Island Sunset, Morning Sunshine, and Spring Fling and comes in a box that is perfectly packaged and ready to go. Of course, all of Plant Therapy’s oils are strictly tested which creates a 100% pure high quality oil AND they explain how their oils are extracted… one of the many reasons I am so enthusiastic about them!
Let’s look at the primary oil in each of these blends.
Spring Fling (my favorite) is an energizing and uplifting blend of Grapefruit, Frankincense, Carteri, Myrrh, Ginger Root and Tumeric Blend. Grapefruit oil contains limonine and along with it’s ability to provide a sense of clarity it offers a fresh and tangy citrus scent. The perfect smell to uplift anyone’s mood!
Island Sunset leads with Blood Orange, an intense fresh zesty scent. This makes sense since this oil is derived from the peel of the blood orange. It’s a bit more intense than Sweet Orange oil and believe me after all the rain this Spring… I need a kick in the pants! Not to mention that Blood Orange helps with moodiness. Ahem, just sayin’.
Morning Sunshine is perfect for you morning people. Folks like Gigi who wake with a smile on their face and are ready to greet the day. Remember, we aren’t mentioning moodiness here ;)…
Leading with steam distilled Lemon oil, here is another refreshing, energizing and uplifting scent! What is steam distilling you ask? Great question! The thing that differentiates cold pressed Lemon from steam distilled Lemon is that steam distilled Lemon is not phototoxic. Therefore it can be used in body care products such as lotions and lip balms without having to worry about phototoxicity. This way you can spread sunshine wherever you go by adding a few drops of Morning Sunshine to your favorite cream or lotion.
All these blends are packed full of top quality oils that will make you feel better while adding a lovely smell to your home, car or place of work. The set comes in a cute wood box (I’m a sucker for boxes) but each oil can be purchased individually. Did I mention that if you click on the links on this 5 Dog Farm page you can get 10% off until 5/7/18? Consider it mentioned!
OH! and of COURSE let’s not forget Mom! Since I’m espousing the virtues of essential oils what better way to say thanks to Mom for all she does than with a lovely Dear Mom gift box, available until 5/14/18. Click on the Dear Mom link and you can shop for a whole gift box of relaxing creams and lotions or opt to get her a nice bottle of a relaxing synergy blend that includes Frankincense – a reliever of stress and anxiety… not that Mom has any of that…
So there’s my Oil of the Month suggestions. No, I couldn’t help myself and had to offer more than one but once you get into essential oils, you’ll get it. They’re like potato chips… without the calories!
Do you have a favorite Springtime essential oil?
