Ain’t nothing like the real thing, baby!

Nadine Artemis - Living Libations

There are numerous hitches in trying to recreate a plant oil in a lab. The fragrant oils distilled from plants, called secondary metabolites, are part of a plant’s defense system against pests, predators, microbes, sunburn, and drought. They are also part of the plant’s reproductive system used to lure in friendly pollinators. These plant mechanisms are complex and interconnected with metabolic challenges as well as free radical and oxidative stress in the plant.

The potency and qualities of the secondary metabolites made by the plant are unique, reflecting the subtle differences in the plant’s environment, influenced by the soil it grows in and even by what is growing next to it. All of these factors contribute to the exceptional qualities of pure plant oil, and they cannot be recreated in a lab.

Rumi Perfumes made with only really real essential oils are magnificently multifaceted and unequalled by anything produced in a laboratory. A true, pure essential oil is greater than the sum of its parts. Lavender essential oil is more than just linalool, which is the component that most laboratories are producing under the guise of lavender scent. True lavender oil also has traces of other compounds like α-pinenelimonene, and 1,8-cineole.

All true essential oils are complex mixtures of phytochemicals and phytonutrients that work synergistically. “The property of the whole essential oil results from the limitless rearrangement and permutations of the basic components.” All of the trace components contribute significantly to the fragrance of the oil and how the fragrance affects us physiologically.

💁 REVIEW | YARROW ESSENTIAL OIL | @livinglibations
I am not one to make reviews (hardly ever actually), but I do read them, and enjoy ‘getting inside’ a product from other people’s personal experiences. So I have for some time now been thinking I should write a review for these fabulous essential oils that The Dutch Health Store carries. Cause I simply love Living Libations and I love The Dutch Health store as well, period.
I work with natural plant materials and essential oils for a living, and I am rather picky with what I use and choose both professionally and personally. But never once has Living Libations disappointed, on the contrary, their oils are truly some of the best ones I have ever tried. As it is, I could more than happily write a five star review on any of the 40-50 Living Libations essential oils I have here with me, but fate had it so that it is one of the latest arrivals from Wilma that’ll be the chosen one – Yarrow.To receive a parcel in the post from Wilma in Holland to Denmark is always like ‘a Christmas time’ to me, and the excitement I feel opening the cardboard box to welcome and investigate my new ‘essential allies’ is a moment of thrill. When I first opened the little bottle with Yarrow to smell, I was immediately drawn into a deep beautiful blue sea of botanical healing, where it instantly captured me and I could not let it go, I just had to sniff and sniff and sniff – aaaahhh – and my very first thought was ‘Now this is medicine!’............... 〰️ Ingvild | January 30, 2019Read more >> http://bit.ly/2SfVOPN#achillea #millefolium #asteraceae #bruises #scrapes #cuts #wounds #insectbites #spirit #facialserum #burning #eczema #livinglibations #dutchheathstore @wilmadutchhealthstore
