Essential Oil Profiles

CAJEPUT (Melaleuca Leucodendrum)

Cajeput is also known as white tea tree oil. Traditionally it was used in Australia & Malaysia for its antiseptic & analgesic properties.

Cajeput is useful as an inhalation to combat sluggishness. It blends well with citrus, geranium, eucalyptus, ginger, peppermint, rosemary & many others.

YLANG-YLANG

We have the finest grade available, which is called Ylang-ylang extra. Traditionally, ylang-ylang was used in Madagascar & throughout the tropics for attracting love. The large yellowish flowers were worn to attract a mate. They were also strewn on the marriage bed in traditional island cultures to promote fertility. Ylang-ylang is used in aphrodisiac blends & also in calming aromatherapy formulations for the heart. Ylang-ylang is the perfect Valentine Day essential oil.

JASMINE

Jasmine (Jasmine officinale, J. sambac, J. grandiflorum) is also known as "The Queen of the Night". Yet it is also called "The King of Flowers." It has a penetrating floral aroma that invokes warm, tropical breezes wafting incense from a nearby shrine. Jasmine's scent can last hours. In fact, it is often used as a base note in perfumery to hold other scents close to the skin & slow down evaporation of lighter, more fleeting essential oils. Jasmine has been shown to be both relaxing & stimulating in controlled studies. It is not recommended for use during pregnancy, but it is sometimes used in low dilutions during labor to strengthen contractions. Jasmine is considered euphoric & an aphrodisiac.

PALMAROSA

Palmarosa (Cymbopogan martini) is a grass. Wonderful for skin care, this essential oil is appropriate for all skin types. Try a little with your usual skin care routine. A tiny drop is enough. Traditionally Palmarosa is used for acne, general skin care, dry skin & wrinkles. It is considered a cellular regenerator, stimulant, moisturizer & aphrodisiac. In Ayurvedic practice it has the ability to lower all doshas. Its aroma is considered sweet & floral with distinct rosy notes. It blends well with rose, geranium, jasmine & other florals. It blends equally well with all citrus oils. In skin care use with frankincense & myrrh to combat dry skin, wrinkles & other signs of aging.

MONOI DE TAHITI

One of the few essential oils still extracted by the ancient, hands-on method of enfleurage, Monoi de Tahiti is a tropical delight for the senses. Blossoms of the Tiare flower (Gardenia taitensis) are place in coconut oil. In a short time the oil is infused with the flower's aroma. Tiare is renowned for its scent and its healing properties. It has been used for centuries by Polynesians for skin and hair preparations. You can place the jar of Monoi de Tahiti in warm water to melt it, just like coconut oil. Then blend it with an equal amount of jojoba oil. Tropical paradise in a jar!
