Springtime Sales and New Beginnings!
New from France, a lovely ethically farmed Clary Sage, quite different in aroma and effect from our high sclareol USA grown, a beautiful ethically farmed Roman Chamomile oil, an amazing organic Belgian Angelica Root, Melissa from the United
Kingdom (this year’s French crop failed due to too much rain, thank goodness
for our British producer!) Just in time for spring, more Egyptian Violet Leaf
Absolute, the soft green scent of spring. We also were able to get a large
shipment of our Egyptian Geranium Oil. (Egyptian oils have been very difficult to source for the last year or more, so we are delighted to be able to restock to meet your projected needs.) From our Canadian distiller, more Scotch Pine and Balsam Fir oils. (Did you know that the pine and fir oils are wonderful in a diffuser for coughs and congestion, and safer for wee ones than the Eucalyptus family?) From Madagascar...Katafray (we had not planned on restocking this rare oil, but you asked for it) and Cinnamon Leaf. Finally, we were able to find a small amount of Organic Red Mandarine. Supplies on this are very limited. (It is becoming more and more difficult to stock organic coldpressed citrus oils!)
Oils high in esters are normally anti-spasmodic, calming and relaxing. Some
are also anti-fungal. Roman Chamomile (Anthemis nobilis) contains many esters
not found in any other oil and is the classic and traditional anti-spasmodic
oil. Most esters are very fragrant, with sweet, fruity aromas. Most
are known for their gentleness. Emotionally, they can help us adapt to stress in
our lives. (We aren’t stressed by this unseasonably long winter, not us!) This month save 10% on 15 ml sizes of all the oils listed below:
Some of our favorite oils that are high in esters: Anthemis Nobilis ... we have two, our English Chamomile and our new French Roman Chamomile. Other
favorites: our new French Clary Sage, higher in linalyl acetate and other esters
than our USA grown specimen, Organic Bergamot (high in Linalyl Acetate),
the unique USA Artemisia ludoviciana type latiloba CT Esters, commonly known as Owyhee, and our
lighthearted Bergamot Mint.
