Jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis) – Glorious, golden jojoba nourishes and lubes thirsty skin. Jojoba has unparalleled ability to create long-lasting conditioning effects that soften and soothe the skin. It is packed with peptides and lipids and contains the highest levels of phenolic compounds found in nature along with antioxidants and all soluble forms of vitamin E!
Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis decumbens) – Happy hyssop is a practical and potent essence with a welcoming honey-herbal aroma. Steam distilled and organically harvested in France, this herb has been traditionally used to revive respiration and boost feelings of robustness.
Thyme (Thymus vulgaris) – Thyme is on your side. Yes, it is! This heroic herb has a history of helping the body recover vitality and vibrancy. It is described as ‘perfume of the dawn in paradise’, a tendril of a plant that is herbaceous and sweet, and one of the most practical plant essences you will ever inhale. Always a favorite of herbalists throughout history, thyme’s fragrant botanical-biotics perfumes and purifies simultaneously.
Ravensara (Ravensara aromatic) – Rare ravensara revitalizes! Steam distilled in the lush rain forests of Madagascar, this oil contains high levels of limonene, linalool, alpha-pinene, delta careen, sabinene, and a host of other potent botanical compounds. We think of this essence as the echinacea of aromatherapy, whether you are feeling the first signs of fatigue, or are seeking to avert a bout of imbalances, reach for ravensara. It is an illuminating essence, refreshing clarity and purity.
Rosemary (Rosemarinus officinalis) – Rosemary is for remembrance; and this oil will help you remember to breathe. This time-tested aromatherapy essence gives a blessing to bound-up breath.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus globulus) – Eucalyptus gets the fluids flowing. For decades upon decades, this essence has unplugged pathways and inspired humans to breathe deeply by cleansing and clearing spaces, places, and faces.
Oregano (Origanum vulgare) – Opulent oregano is a classic botanical-biotic that illuminates ill-tempered instigators, eliminates airborne aversions, and stimulates clarity.
Beeswax (Cera alba) – Queen bees are protected by legions of devoted worker bees and, likewise, the wax from happy bees will guard your nose and airways from the elements. Beeswax forms a breathable layer on the skin to seal in moisture and protect the delicate skin from dryness.
“Contacting and overcoming a cold is connected to the immune functions of the respiratory tract. In the nasal cavities, air is moistened and cleaned.
The mucus membranes establish a constant temperature inside the nose…
Immunocompetent cells, such as beta lymphocytes, are present in the mucus membranes and form a first line of defense.
In addition, particles entering the air are filtered by the nasal mucosa… remaining in overheated or extremely dry rooms
for long periods of time in the winter is a common prelude to an upper reparatory tract infection”.
