Litsea Essential Oil Discussion:
Litsea essential oil is a superb oil, made from pepper-like fruits, yet with a lovely, lemony scent. It may also be extracted from the leaf. Its aroma is calming and may promote sleep, rest, and relaxation. It is known as “May Chang” or “Mountain pepper”. Though it does not belong to the citrus family, the oil gives off an aroma similar to that of a lemon. It contains many compounds, including geraniol, neral, d-limonene, β-thujene, β-pinene, α-pinene, and linalool. These are also constituents found in geranium, pine, lemon, lime, and thuja, some of the most potent, well-known, and used plants! It is also popular to use in personal cosmetics like soap, perfume, and it is even used as a flavoring for food.
It has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries to support diarrhea, stomach ailments, fever, cold, muscle and joint pain, blood pressure, and for its overall detoxifying capabilities. In Ayurvedic medicine it is utilized to raise spirituality and to release negative energy. Generally it is used by many for support with digestion, healthy skin, respiratory, and they say it is great support for the heart. It is also a natural bug repellant and used for this purpose as well.
An “Essential Oil” is the soul, or essence, of a plant.
We have worked very closely with essential oils for years now. We have attained working and personal experience to get to know the individual oils, their scents, properties, dangers, blending preferences, synergistic qualities, and their similarities! We have selected from all over the world to offer an amazing list of oils for you to choose from! Don’t be fooled by the large MLM companies that claim their oils are unique to them. This is a difficult process that takes fresh plant material by the ton to accomplish. There is NO single company, in the entire world, with capabilities to make every essential oil.
Essential oils heighten our emotional, mental, and physical states by supporting the body’s natural processes. Each molecule delivers healing properties by either inhalation and/or topical penetration. The second you inhale the molecule, it comes into contact with the olfactory system, which uses tiny nerves and sensors that pass signals on to the brain. The brain then becomes a messenger, releasing neurotransmitters to initiate the supportive processes.
Essential oil quality is always in question, as many companies can make any claims they want, without consequence. I can assure you quality, purity, and reputability, but at an economical price! You truly do not need to spend a fortune on essential oils to receive benefits. Most oils must be mixed with a carrier before being used on the skin, as they are pure, accomplished, and powerful!
The bottles I provide avoids many issues. I feel a glass dropper bottle is the best way to store and use essential oils. This also avoids touching or spilling them. No one wants to sacrifice and waste quality essential oils. Each oil has its own identity and signature details of a colored, decorative stripe on the dropper, as well as a detailed label. The collectors know, nothing’s worse than having to lift and turn every bottle in your collection to read the label in order to see what it is! You will see the beautiful colored themes representing whatever it is you intend to grab.
I have steam distilled oils, which is the traditional way to extract the compounds. Cold-pressed oils, like citrus peel, is the best way to extract oil from rinds without damage to its constituents. We also offer a few absolutes, which are essential oils extracted by solvents, also said to mostly evaporate during the production process. Absolutes are normally the delicate and most beloved blossoms, like the lotus flower.
I am proud to be a pioneer in the use of essential oils as belly button soaks! These are new and uncharted waters that have only begun to have the connections researched. The navel is connected directly and indirectly to many important parts and processes of the body! You can learn more about navel soaking by going reading the product information of “Belly Button Solutions™“
There are at least two other places on the body, where I suspect that by applying substances there, we may obtain deeper access in the body. There is a dent, between our back shoulder blades, where every nerve of the body may crisscross. We also have a vein on the back of our necks that may act as a portal to deeper areas. There is little to no information available that can be found on the accessibility of these areas.
Essential oils provide a natural, toxin-free way of replacing chemical household and cosmetic products. Be your own alchemist and mix them together, with carriers, to create your own D.I.Y. concoctions at home. Otherwise, simply choose a signature blend. The uses and benefits are limitless!
Get to know essential oils yourself. Come to understand what is referred to as a “carrier oil”. The name indicates just that, it binds and carries the essential oil into the skin. Otherwise, they may burn with direct application. Oils that are considered to be carriers are, but not limited to: coconut, olive, avocado, sunflower, and grape seed.
I offer many carrier oils in the “Carrier Oil Solutions™” section of this website. Understand that not all oils are used in aromatherapy, and some contain phototropic compounds that may cause the skin to burn more easily if exposed to excessive sunlight. You could learn life-changing information!
Some ideas for D.I.Y. uses, with dilution, would be: belly button soaks, back of the neck, between the shoulder blades, bottoms of the feet, wrists, beneath the breasts, body wash additive, breath fresheners, carpet powder additive, perfume, room/linen spray, cosmetic additive, diffusing, flavoring in food, foot/hand & detox baths/soaks, home cleaning water additive, insect bite & possible preventative, jetted tubs, as a preservative, laundry freshener/sanitizer, additive for lotion, shampoo, conditioner, cosmetics, shower gel, candles, soap, for washing produce, room and vehicle fresheners, vacuum and trash can fresheners, aromatherapy and steam inhalation, and many others!
I do not speak on the oral benefits of essential oils, as I believe that is best left up to the practitioners! Do not use it while pregnant. Keep out of reach of the babes, including animals.
