Here we go harnessing the power of plants again. This time in the form of Therapeutic Essential Oil Blends. Let’s call them TEOBs. These are 100% essential oil compositions that have been chosen for their effect on your mood, mind and body – to clear out your sinuses, to calm, relax, destress, focus your mind, empower (!) and, well put you to sleep.
The two blends I have currently released are called the Breathe Easy and Thieves Blend. The former is true to its title and contains powerful airway clearing oils such as eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint, thyme etc. The Thieves Blend is actually based on a legend. And I do mean a legend as, as far as I know, there is no historical record of these events. But apparently during the time the Black Plague was ravaging Europe, a group of thieves would go about plundering the corpses of the dead. They did this looting without ever becoming afflicted with the disease itself. When they were caught they offered to disclose the secret of their immunity in exchange for a pardon. And thus the secret of the Thieves Blend was revealed. Believe the fable or not, the oils it is composed of are some of the most antibacterial and anti fungal and maybe a blend of them makes their properties more potent? Who knows. But the blend I use is composed of the essential oils of clove, cinnamon, rosemary, lemon and eucalyptus oil. I also use orange oil in lieu or as well as the lemon. I have always used this blend heavily diluted in a carrier oil on my person, just a dab on my pulse points and for some reason on the back of my neck. I don’t quite know why I put it there…
The TEOBs are made to actually be used in a water burner. Just add in about 10 drops (the bottles come with a pippette) and light your tealight. If you choose to apply straight to the body then it will need to be diluted and we recommend at least 1:30 ratio i.e. 1ml blend to 30ml carrier oil.
So far only these two TEOBs have been released on the Etsy shop but more will be along soon.
