Rose petals and sea salt

By surrounding yourself with natural aromas from flowers and using essential oils in a diffuser, you can induce the feeling you want to create.  For example, essential oils that contain a high quantity of the chemical compound ester have relaxing benefits.  I would recommend these if you are having a difficult time sleeping or are experiencing anxiety.  On the other hand, if you are having a hard time staying awake you can use essential oils that contains phenols, which are stimulating.

Stimulating essential oils that contain a high % of phenols:

  • Basil
  • Bay Leaf
  • Cinnamon
  • Clove
  • Creeping Hyssop
  • Eucalyptus
  • Parsley
  • Peppermint
  • Niaouli
  • Oregano
  • Spike Lavender
  • Tea Tree
  • Thyme

Sedating essential oils that contain a high % of esters:

  • Bergamot
  • Bergamot Mint
  • Black Spruce
  • Cardamom
  • Clary Sage
  • Roman Chamomile
  • Geranium
  • Helichrysum
  • Jasmine absolute
  • Lavender
  • Linaloe Berry
  • Melissa
  • Myrtle
  • Neroli
  • Petitgrain
  • Siberian Fir
  • Sitka Spruce
  • Sugandha Kokila
  • White Spruce
  • Ylang Ylang

Pink Rose

Rose is one of the most expensive essential oils, as is neroli (orange flower), melissa (lemon balm), tuberose (an absolute obtained through enfleurage), and jasmine (an absolute, or a concrete, as opposed to the steam distilled oil).  If you look at the cost of rose essential oil, in today’s marketplace you’d spend around $5,000 for one pound.  It is expensive because it takes close to 2 tons of petals to press out a pound of the essential oil.  12,000 pounds of jasmine flowers are needed to produce two pounds of the oil absolute.

We use both neroli and jasmine in our solid perfumes.  Love’s Embrace contains jasmine in its blend of six precious essential oils, whereas Seductress contains both neroli and jasmine in its blend of eight precious essential oils.
