Pure Home Style with Essential Oils

Whether your home is an expression of clean-lined modernism in stainless steel and glass or a warm and worn harmony of earth tones and antique furnishings, the too-often overlooked element of home style is the unseen atmosphere that you breathe. If you're cultivating a toxin-free, natural home atmosphere, create the “aaaaah” factor with 100% pure essential oils – Mother Nature approved!

Individual essential oils provide the basic elements of safe and natural aromatic style. The aromatic characteristics of essential oils are divided into long lasting base notes, radiant middle notes and fresh top notes. A balanced blend of all three notes creates the most complete and useful home fragrance.

Blending Basics

Select a middle note; do you like something floral, woody, earthy or light and fresh? Next, enhance the middle note with a related top note that will help your aroma expand and radiate throughout the air. Finally, choose a base note that will give your blend stability and staying power as it diffuses throughout your home.

floralsTop Note Essential Oils: lemon, grapefruit, lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint
Middle Note Essential Oils: rose, jasmine, neroli, balsam fir, pine
Base Note Essential Oils: sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, cedarwood

When you have your blend ready, it’s easy to incorporate the aroma into one or more natural and stylish home scenting options.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

GINGER

Ginger essential oilWith its blend of earthy-rooty and fresh lemony aroma notes, ginger essential oil is like no other. The oil is distilled from the cleaned rhizomes of the same tropical species that provides the ginger used in cooking. Ginger's aromatherapy benefits are warming and activating. Because it has a dual action of grounding the emotions while at the same time being physically vitalizing, ginger is a good choice for promoting mental and physical balance and stability. In massage, ginger encourages circulation and is a good choice for stagnant constitutions and stiff, sore muscles.

Warming Ginger and Tangerine Massage Oil
1/2 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 cup sweet almond or apricot kernel oil
24 drops ginger essential oil
24 drops tangerine essential oil

Blend oils and apply about a teaspoon at a time during massage. Tip: Increase the amount of applied oil to increase glide, and decrease the amount of oil to help create friction for a heat-building massage treatment.

Ginger, Peppermint and Rose Emotional Balance Room Spray
4 ounces bottled or distilled water
13 drops ginger essential oil
8 drops peppermint essential oil
3 drops rose absolute or rose otto essential oil

Place ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake vigorously and lightly mist throughout room whenever you want to create an atmosphere of balance and stability.
