The Effects of Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender has been used for a long time to promote a feeling of relaxation and rest. Studies conducted by the US NCBI showed that people who smelled lavender oil had a drop in heart rate and blood pressure (source).
It’s a no wonder that many use Lavender Essential Oil as a primary ingredient in their products. I love putting on our Avocado Body Butter scented with Lavender right before bed. And I will also use Lavender Essential Oil in a steam shower at night for extra relaxation. Our Lavender E.O. is 100% Lavandula angustifolia and comes direct from France.
The Effects of Rosemary Essential Oil
Not only is Rosemary a wonderful herb to cook with, it is also a wonderful Essential Oil producer. Rosemary has a high oil content unlike lavender. So it it is more economical choice for an Essential Oil and it has similar mood enhancing properties. Rosemary Essential Oil is a stimulating oil, therefore you tend to feel alert when you smell it. It is also known to inspire happiness and feeling of cheer. Mixed with Lavender Oil it can promote a nice relaxing feeling. Perfect for when you shower after a long day but want to stay up and catch up on your favorite series.
Peppermint Compared to Spearmint Essential Oil
Both of these essential oils have the same brightening and cooling essence. The two catch your attention and promote alertness. However there is a difference between the two. Peppermint is the strongest of the two and has a more intense mint smell. Spearmint is a sweeter smelling mint and is not as strong as peppermint. But all together peppermint and Spearmint are great for diffusers, but in small amounts.
The Effects of Any Citrus Essential Oil

These oils are great to put in body wash for the morning, it will really kick start your sinuses. They promote alertness, and assertiveness. However we recommend they not be applied in lotions because they are a skin, because they may make the skin more prone to being burnt from the sun.
