Sadly during the Covid-19 pandemic we saw a slump in sales of our products. Our shop was closed for several months and we didn't have the opportunity to go out to events as usual.
The knock on effect has been that we didn't use as many essential oils as usual. We've reviewed our inventory and have decided to replace many of our unused essential oils with fresh stock for 2021. So the good news is that all of our products will be manufactured with fresh aromatherapy grade essential oils. The dilemma has been what to do with the older essential oils? While we have taken the responsible decision not to use them for skincare product manufacture, they'd still be suitable to use for home fragrancing. So while stocks last, we're having an essential oil sale!
We stress these essential oils are older batches which have been stored carefully in refridgerators. These essential oils are aromatherapy grade and still smell lovely, but they now have a shorter shelf life. Each sale bottle has been marked to show it's from an older batch. These sale essential oils sold are being sold at a reduced price, for home fragrancing purposes only. We do not recommend using them for skin application since they are older oils, but think they'd be great to use in an oil burner or in one of our LED ultrasonic diffusers. They may also be suitable if you make your own candles (for personal use only).
This is a great way to try out some unfamiliar oils e.g. everyone seems to use Sweet Orange in blends, but have you tried Bitter Orange? ....think of a certain chocolate orange and you'll know what we mean!
Remember that essential oils can can be used in many ways. So a drop of Tea Tree will keep dishcloths and kitchen surfaces clean, try using Spruce in the bathroom and Peppermint repels ants and spiders. Try adding Lemon for a streak free finish when you're cleaning windows. Lemongrass, Citronella, May Chang (it has a lemon sherbet aroma) are great room fresheners, but did you know they all repel flies? Zingy Lime is another beautiful addition to home fragrance blends, but you only need a little since it has such a strong aroma! Cedarwood is traditionally used to repel moths so it's perfect for refreshing the aroma on wardrobe moth repelling wooden balls. Gentle Myrtle, Naouli, Elemi and the Eucalyptus varieties all support the respiratory system, so a drop in a blend can be helpful when you're diffusing essential oils to support a cold. The spice oils are often overlooked too, but a drop of Black Pepper, Ginger, lovely soft Caraway or Coriander can transform a blend into the sort of aroma you'd expect in a spa. Spearmint is another oil that's often overlooked, but it can lift a blend with it's soft sweet aroma. A drop of Rosemary in a diffuser in the car or home office is good when you need to concentrate, since it makes you feel more alert.
Hope this information helps and gives you some ideas on how to use essential oils at home. Remember essential oils are powerful so if you have any health issues, it's best to consult a qualified Aromatherapist before using essential oils you aren't familiar with. Also one final caution - do not use essential oils when laundering clothes (we often hear people saying they add a drop in with their washing). Please don't. Essential oils are highly flammable and in recent years there have been several fires caused by them being on clothing and igniting inside tumble dryers. When we launder our massage therapy linens, it's always done on a high heat wash to ensure the essential oils are removed from the linens, before they are dried.
So grab a bargain, limited stocks on some varieties - these sale essential oils have at least 30% off! Descriptions of each aroma are shown on the main essential oil product pages.
