* Peppermint essential oil:

I like to use peppermint, during the hot summer months by keeping peppermint infused towels in the cooler or refrigerator. After a hot, sweaty workout, I like to place a peppermint towel on the back of my neck to help cool me down.

Cypress

cupressus-sempervirens-leaves-and-cones   Cypress essential oil is steam distilled from the branches of the Cypress tree.

The Phoenicians and Cretans used cypress for building ships and bows, while the Egyptians made sarcophogi from the wood. The Greeks used cypress to carve statues of their gods. The Greek word “sempervirens,” from the which the botanical name is derived, means “live forever.”

Cupressus sempervirens

Cypress is noted for its durability as it was used most famously for the original doors of St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican that legends say lasted over 1,000 years.

 

Aromatic Benefits

Cypress.EO_An essential oil, when inhaled, can reach the emotional center of the brain within seconds. This is one of the incredible benefits of aromatherapy. The fragrant influences of Cypress are grounding, calming and soothing. It may help to ease the feeling of loss and create a sense of security and possibly help soothe feelings of anger to help life flow a little better.

Applications

Cypress essential oil can be applied topically for a relaxing massage or diffused and inhaled to create a calming environment.

How can you incorporate Cypress into your everyday life?

• Add it to your homemade lotions and creams. We love pairing it with Aroma Siez, PanAway, and Frankincense.
• Use it after working out. Apply Cypress topically on your muscles, especially along your calves and shins.
• Make a DIY coffee scrub and add a few drops of Cypress.
• Diffuse Cypress after a long day to encourage a sense of grounding.”

Companion Essential Oils

Cypress is in the conifer family and pairs well with bergamot, clary sage, juniper, lavender, lemon, orange, and sandalwood.

Angelica

Angelica is known as the “holy spirit root” or the “oil of angels” by the Europeans. They believed that angelica’s healing powers were so strong that it was of divine origin.

Angelica archangelica

Throughout history, angelica has been a notable herb. From the time of Paracelsus, it was credited with its powerful abilities to strengthen and protect the immune system.

The American Indians used angelica for its medicinal properties in poultices and more, and the Indians of the Rocky Mountains are known for making decoctions and teas from angelica root, drinking as tonics to build strength after illness.

An essential oil, when inhaled, can reach the emotional center of the brain within seconds. This is one of the incredible benefits of aromatherapy. The fragrant influences of angelica are very soothing and calming for emotional balance as well as to the nervous system and may help assist in the release of pent-up negative emotions.

Applications

Angelica essential oil can be applied topically for a relaxing massage or diffused and inhaled to create a calming environment.

Companion Essential Oils

Angelica is from the carrot family and is sometimes known as “wild celery.” My nose picks up on whispers of dill in its aroma and it blends well with florals, woods, and most citrus oils; some of them being basil, bergamot, black pepper, cardamom, chamomile roman, clary sage, coriander, dill, fennel, ginger, grapefruit, juniper, lavender, lemon, lime, marjoram, melissa, orange, patchouli, petitgrain, rose, tangerine, valerian, and vetiver,

Note: Angelica is a photosensitive oil which means that you’ll want to avoid direct sunlight to the area for at least 12 hours.

Interesting fact about Angelica: Native Americans called it the “hunting or fishing root” because when rubbed on hands it attracted fish and game.
