Overall, our Spring Garden fragrance blend offers a harmonious combination of scents that not only smell great but also offer a variety of therapeutic properties.

Additionally, the essential oil of lavender possesses potent antifungal properties and is an effective remedy for treating burns.

Chamomile is a gentle sedative and an effective anti-inflammatory for the stomach. It has a calming effect on the nerves and aids in the relief of gas. This herb is a wonderful nervine, particularly for children. It can be administered in small doses as a homeopathic remedy or brewed into a tea with a sweetener to alleviate colic, hyperactivity, teething, fussiness, fever, or irritability in infants and children.
When combined with elder flower, peppermint, and yarrow, chamomile can be beneficial for children experiencing colds and flu. This herbal blend can help alleviate symptoms such as congestion, fever, and body aches, and support the body's natural healing process. However, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before giving herbal remedies to children.
Warnings- Allergic reactions to chamomile are not common but are more common than with many other herbs.
Energetics - Cooling and relaxing
Properties - Antispasmodic, aromatic, carminative, diaphoretic, digestive tonic, and nervine.
Lavender & Chamomile
Our Lavender & Chamomile blend is carefully crafted to promote relaxation and restful sleep. Lavender's gentle floral scent combines with the soothing sweetness of Chamomile to create a calming and relaxing aroma that can help quiet the mind and promote a sense of tranquility. Whether you're looking to unwind after a long day or to prepare for a restful night's sleep, this blend can help you achieve a state of calm and relaxation.
The minty and woody scent of eucalyptus provides numerous health benefits. Studies show that eucalyptus oil can help alleviate asthma, bronchitis, and brain fog. Additionally, research suggests that eucalyptus oil can relieve joint pain and inflammation commonly associated with conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. However, it is important to note that eucalyptus oil should never be applied directly to the body as it can cause skin irritations. It should be diluted or mixed with other ingredients, such as a salve or balm, before use.
The aroma of this blend is a combination of Bay leaves, orange peels, whole cloves, and frankincense. It has a musky and masculine scent with hints of spices and a subtle citrus sweetness. Other complementary herbs and scents are also present in the undertones to enhance the primary ones. Bay Leaves, which are known for their ability to treat migraines, are among the main ingredients. The refreshing feeling associated with citrus is also present.
Additional scents may be added in the future, and if you have a particular request, please don't hesitate to contact me. I can create almost any combination of scents. I primarily use natural and organic ingredients to create the scents and incorporate essential oils to enhance the aroma. However, essential oils are not the main ingredient in most of my products; they serve as a supporting element.
This blend features a delightful mixture of Rose Petals, Hibiscus Petals, and a touch of Lavender. While primarily used for skin applications, it also provides a pleasant aroma. The Rose offers a soothing and restorative scent that encourages deep, slow breaths with its perfumed floral and slightly musky fragrance. Meanwhile, the Hibiscus emits a subtle and sweet aroma that is attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Lavender rounds out the blend with its well-known calming and light floral scent.
Rose flowers have held a place of high regard among the most treasured herbs throughout history, and with good reason. They have a remarkable ability to lift the spirits when they are weighed down by stress, grief, overwork, and other unpleasant emotions. Simply inhaling or beholding their beauty imparts healing properties, reminding us to slow down and appreciate life's simple pleasures, like "stopping to smell the roses."
Warnings - No known issues.
Energetics - cooling, drying, and slightly constricting
Properties - Antihypertensive, antidiabetic, antianxiety, hypnotic, anti-inflammatory, nervine, anti-aging properties and antidepressant
