Organic Arnica Infused Herbal Oil

By Ann C Wooledge
on September 20, 2012

Certified organic Arnica montana flowers infused in certified organic hi-oleic sunflower oil

Take a moment to read our article here on the benefits and properties of this very useful and effective oil - and the safety and cautions that apply. Below you will find more information.

SAFETY CAUTION INFORMATION: Using topical arnica for a long time frame may lead to skin irritation, including eczema, peeling, blisters and burning sensations, according to the UMMC and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). These effects are uncommon. Although arnica is a common topical herbal treatment, people should not apply this herb to open wounds because absorption into the bloodstream can be toxic.

 Anticoagulant Effects

Arnica montana contains coumarin chemicals that have blood-thinning properties, as explained by the MSKCC. Although anticoagulant effects have not been reported in people using this herb, anyone taking medications or herbs with blood-thinning effects should be cautious about using arnica. These include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen, anticoagulants such as warfarin and heparin, and anti-platelet medications such as clopidogrel. The herb ginkgo biloba also has blood-thinning properties.

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii)

By Ann C Wooledge
on June 01, 2012

Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii) Essential oil.  

We recommend that all essential oils be used diluted and with the proper education provided to you by your health care provider or certified aromatherapist. There are many places you can purchase essential oils, but we recommend that you consult with an educated provider or purchase blends from educated providers. Essential oils are powerful medicines and when used incorrectly can cause harm. Please read our Disclaimer before using our products.

Although some websites will say that this oil is a skin irritant and to avoid use in pregnancy. Our research did not find this to be an issue, in fact, one of our favorite aromatherapy textbooks, Aromatherapy for Health Professionals, by Shirley and Len price refers to Palmarosa as being a "uterotonic oil which facilitates delivery" and they provide what they call the "Boudoir" blend as follows:

Thyme essential oil - Thymus vulgaris ct (chemotype) geraniol - 3 ml (there are 5 ml's to a teaspoon)

Palmarosa essential oil - Cymbopogon martini - 3 ml

Clove (it doesn't say leaf or bud, but they are much the same) - Syzygium aromaticum: 0.5 ml

Vegetable carrier oil: 13.5 ml

Instructions: "6 to 8 drops massaged over the belly several times a day to stimulate labour if the mother is post-term. Or the same quantity over the lower back every half hour during labour itself."

Our favorite book on essential oil safety is well...Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Tony Balacs. They have comments concerning the constituent geraniol and refers to oral dosing, which we do not recommend regardless of the oil unless under the advice and guidance from an aromatherapy professional who has demonstrated hours of education and expertise. They also state that geraniol may have the potential to lower blood pressure. They consider Cymbopogon martinii to not be a skin irritant nor sensitizer, not phototoxic with no cautions or warnings noted.

Once I finalize the blend for the Candida that we used for the yeast overgrowth, I'll put it up on the website for sale with all of the ingredients declared. Plus, we will be adding Palmarosa to our Bugz Off essential oil blend so it can be used for dust mites and most likely for bed bugs - but I'm still finishing up the research and testing on that one.

Keep ALL essential oils out of reach of children or pets, dilute prior to use. Use and store in the amber dropper safety caps provided. Keep out of sunlight or high temperatures. Do not take orally without proper supervision by a healthcare provider and/or certified aromatherapist.

Oregano essential oil (Origanum vulgare)

By Ann C Wooledge
on October 23, 2011

Oregano essential oil (Origanum vulgare)

Undiluted, pure aromatherapy grade. Do not use internally without first consulting with a qualified healthcare professional and this oil should be diluted with carrier oil prior to use. This particular essential oil is often sold in health food stores diluted with other ingredients. The oil we offer here is not diluted and is not adulterated with other ingredients. Due to its high content of the chemical constitutent Carvacrol, this oil will inhibit platelet aggregation, which means it decreases the bloods natural ability to clot. So do not use prior to surgery and or immediately following surgery. And do not use if you are currently on any other blood thinners such as aspirin, Plavix or Coumadin. 

HIGHLY IRRITATING TO THE SKIN AND MUCOUS MEMBRANES. I have on occasion, accidentally, touched the side of the bottle when putting it away and there may have been a drop on the outside of the bottle. I then put my hand to my mouth and it hurt - a lot! I had to immediately wash my entire face and hands. I should and usually do remember to whip the outside of the bottles and wash my hands thoroughly after pouring any oils - but especially this oil. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN - PLEASE!!

Please see our disclaimer. You will find additional in-depth information in our Essential Oil Database along with research information (under construction)

Rooibos Calming Facial Serum

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

If you haven’t been reading about the absolutely amazing properties of Rooibos, take a look at our Rooibos benefits & properties page where we go into some detail. You will be seeing more of this extract in many of our formulas. Rooibos is a very effective anti-inflammatory & antioxidant and added to that is our usual DMAE & MSM. We include these two ingredients in most of our facial products because they have been proven to work consistently to tighten, firm and improve the health of your skin. I use this serum after washing my face while my skin is still warm and slightly moist. I like to gently rub it in using upward outward circles - this also increases circulation to your facial skin providing additional benefits. After this is absorbed, I then put on a dab of either the organic  Every Day Facial Cream or the organic Skin Intensive Renewal Cream.

Learn more about the proper usage and benefits that come with using all of our Facial Regimen Products.

Blissful Babies Boo Boo Bottom Balm

By Ann C Wooledge
on August 29, 2009

This balm slides on easily, absorbs quickly and soothes and calms the painful inflammation from diaper rash, heat rash, or any other “boo boo’s” that are common with babies and young children. The beeswax provides a natural barrier that protects babies tender skin. Beeswax is also a well-known antibacterial. Be sure to allow your baby's skin to completely dry before applying the diaper ointment. Never trap moisture under diaper balm as this will hold the moisture against the baby's skin and can cause additional irritation. Our granddaughter has a habit of licking her bottom lip and invariably this causes a rash on her chin – the boo boo balm is our answer. The ingredients are all natural, organic, food-grade oils, totally and completely non-toxic.
