Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii)

Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martinii var. motia)

Palmarosa became one of my favorite essential oils this past year, after a decade of being ignored by me. I discovered while one of my family members was struggling with a yeast overgrowth that this particular essential oil contains a large percentage of a chemical constituent called "geraniol". Now why is that important? Mainly because there are research studies showing that geraniol is quite effective at inhibiting yeast, and specifically Candida in quite a few research studies, one of which is indicated below (1). Candida is a type of yeast that most often causes diaper rash, thrush, yeast overgrowth and other unpleasant things - yep, that one too.  It also has a very nice fragrance which has been likened to that of rose. I don't quite smell that in the samples I've tested, but it does blend well with other essential oils and is widely used in the fragrance industry. It reminds me of a combination of rose and geranium with maybe a little green note to it. I like it, but like it best when blended with other essential oils.

Palmarosa is a grass and a relative of the aromatic and culinary lemongrass. The leaves are distilled for their essential oil.

Mellow Me™ Blend Essential Oils

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Amazing blend of soothing, warming, comforting essential oils that help with monthly cycles that bring about irritation and depression. This blend will soothe the "beast" in all of us - and is good all month, but particularly good for those times that you just can't seem to get in a good mood. I've learned that I can't make this blend in the middle of the day usually - it relaxes me too much. So - don't use it and drive would be my caution for you. Perfect for an evening bath or a way to calm the entire family when diffused into the room. It also smells very good and makes a very good natural perfume.

Cajeput (Melaleuca cajeput)

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Melaleuca leucadendron = cajeputi – would be the another name for this oil. Cajeput, or Caju-puti, as it is called in Malaysia means white wood, since it’s wood is – well – white. This particular oil is steam distilled from fresh leaves and twigs of the paperbark tree. This oil is penetrating, a bit camphorous with a slightly medicinal odor, not unlike and related to other members of the Melaleuca group, such as eucaplytus, clove, niaouli and the familiar tea tree. Valued for is medicinal properties, the leaves of this tree are used by the indigenous population for respiratory and muscular problems. In Europe the oil is used in herbal medicines for its warming properties. This oil is occasionally used as a flavor component in food products and soft drinks. It has also been used as a freshening fragrance in soaps, detergents, cosmetics and some perfumes.

Breathe Easy™ Blend Essential Oil

By Recipes for a Healthier You Appetite Control Snacks
on August 31, 2009

A lot of research and testing went into the formulating of this blend. We have quite a few customers with allergy and asthma issues. Asthma, in particular, requires a more gentle touch so that the automatic strong cough reflex is not elicited, which can happen with some cold and flu type blends. We believe and have found that this blend works effectively to calm the cough reflex and the tight feeling of inflamed and irritated lungs. I remember quite clearly my experience with this blend after running what seemed like forever in the Denver airport to catch a short connection. We ran from one gate to another and we were both out of shape. By the time we made it to our seats, the flight had been waiting on us (surprisingly enough) and the air was stagnant in the cabin of the plane. My chest hurt from the over-exertion and I truly could not take a deep breath. I was coughing uncontrollably and was seriously about to grab for the oxygen bag. I remembered that I had the Breathe Easy in my purse and grabbed for it, just opened the bottle and felt immediate relief. True story. If you are familiar with Young Living blends - this is much like their RC blend, but much more reasonably priced with unadulterated or undiluted oils.

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 31, 2009

Essential Oil of Bergamot Calabrian (Citrus bergamia) 

is a cold pressed oil and comes from the rind peel of the fruit of a citrus tree that bears a fruit that resembles a cross between an orange and a grapefruit (according to some sources.) Ours is from an area in Italy called Calabria and from what I've read Calabria is the only place in the world where the climate is just right for bergamot oranges to grow naturally. I only can repeat what I've read, but I haven't seen any contradictions concerning this. I looked it up because I was curious and found pictures of groves of bergamot orange trees that grow along the Calabrian coastline. Some say they are a cross between an orange and grapefruit, others say they are a natural cross between lime and a sour orange. I rather think this Calabrian that we offer seems more like a cross between an orange and lime. It is by far superior in it's sweet, tart, freshness, with a hint of floral.

Bergamot essential oil is not to be confused with the herb bergamot or bee balm (Monarda didyma). And just for the record, while searching for an appropriate picture for our blog on this oil, 99% of the pictures represented were the Monarda or bee balm flower. The aroma of the oil from this fruit is light and fruity, yet has a warm spicey floral note. In fact, it is said that the bergamot fruit was developed for its scent and has now been used in perfumery since the 18th century. I have received some samples that had a sharp, unpleasant note to them, but ours is warm and one of my favorites. Our latest supply is one of the best I've sampled yet. It reminds me of one of my favorite perfumes, an inexpensive one that I used to buy as a teenager called Muguet des Bois, or Lily of the Valley. Bergamot is NOT Lily of the Valley, but has the same qualities of lightness with a floral note. I particularly like the way Kristen Leigh Bell in her book, "Holistic Aromatherapy for Pets" describes bergamot. She says, "Bergamot is a citrus oil that combines the toning, strengthening and balancing effects of the monoterpene alcohols with the soothing, relaxing and uplifting qualities of the monoterpene hydrocarbons." You can see more about the monoterpenes in the detailed version of our description. Berganot essential oil has many benefits and wonderful properties, which is why we are so fond of it, but it also carries with it a significant caution – please see Benefits/Usage tab and for a detailed description of the benefits of this oil, see our Essential Oil Database or our blog article.


Organic Skin Renewal Intensive Facial Complex

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

 

Well, I have to be completely honest - this cream was formulated originally and continues to be - for me. I have very dry and sensitive skin (as well as rosacea) and absolutely nothing on the market worked. This works and I have tweaked it down through the years as I start to see tiny little wrinkles, so my research becomes a little more intensive as does the formula. It works - it really does. This is the most effective skin cream available in a natural formula or any formula for that matter!  We are using nature’s remedies and they are so much more powerful than all the nanochemicals and synthetics that you see hyped everywhere – nature knows about synergy!  That is what nature is all about and we’ve been blessed to capture this awesomeness in this intensive cell-renewal cream.  You absolutely WILL NOT FIND any other skin care products in my house - I use, and have used, only Wingsets' Facial Regimen for years now and I believe the health of my skin is probably my best testimonial.

We include a high percentage of Jasmine Green Tea, White Tea and Rooibos Tea as we have read studies concerning its beneficial cancer-preventing properties and healing properties.  If you look at our ingredients, you will see that we use certified organic green tea as an organic infusion and put it in again as a botanical extract, plus we’ve added Rooibos tea as well as other herbals for their skin calming and renewing properties. We’ve also added specifically targeted essential oils to combat dry and maturing skin.  The essential oils we use have been suggested to be ingredients that can have an obvious effect on the health of your skin and the appearance of wrinkles.  These are not “miracle ingredients” that you see advertised everywhere.  They are simply essential oils that have proven ability to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin and soothe damaged skin and possibly prevent further damage. They are from nature and because of that your body accepts them as natural.   As far back as biblical times Esther used these oils, as did Cleopatra and many other well-known beauties.  Our formula includes a high percentage of anti-inflammatory (that causes wrinkles and patchy, dry skin) and antioxidant ingredients.  Read the ingredients and their properties on our Product Information Page.
