Beyond Diffusers – Uncommon Uses For Essential Oils

We all know about diffusing essential oils for a calming atmosphere or a burst of invigorating scent. But did you know these potent plant liquids hold untapped potential beyond aromatherapy? In this post we’re diving into the uncommon uses that will transform your perception of these tiny bottles of nature’s magic.

Chemical-Free Cleaning

Ditch the harsh chemicals and embrace the cleaning power of essential oils! Lavender, with its antibacterial properties, tackles dust and grime on surfaces. Tea tree oil, a natural disinfectant, works wonders on doorknobs and light switches. Lemon oil, your kitchen’s best friend, cuts through grease and leaves a refreshing aroma. Mix these powerhouses with water and vinegar for a DIY cleaning spray that’s gentle on your surfaces and lungs.

Repel Bugs

Outsmart those pesky flies and mosquitoes with a strategic blend of essential oils. Citronella, lemongrass, and peppermint oils create a natural barrier these uninvited guests just can’t resist. Diffuse the blend, dab some on cotton balls near entry points, or even create DIY bug repellent wipes. Remember, prevention is key, so reapply regularly for optimal bug-free bliss.

Unwind and Recharge

Essential oils can enhance your bath routine. Add a few drops of calming lavender or stress-busting chamomile oil to your bathwater for a spa-like experience that soothes both body and mind. Want to amp up your focus? Peppermint oil, known for its invigorating aroma, can be inhaled or diffused to boost concentration and alertness.

4. Freshen Fabrics Like a Pro: Fabric refreshers often contain harsh chemicals. Opt for a natural alternative by creating your own linen spray! Combine water, witch hazel, and your favorite essential oil (try lavender for calming bedrooms or any citrus oil such as lemon or lime for energizing towels) in a spray bottle. Shake well and spritz on linens, furniture, or even workout clothes for a burst of natural fragrance.

5. Soothe Sore Muscles, Naturally: After a tough workout or a long day, essential oils can be your muscle’s best friend. Dilute oils like peppermint, eucalyptus, or wintergreen with a carrier oil like coconut oil and massage onto sore muscles. These oils have natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help ease pain and promote relaxation. Our aromatherapist, John, has designed a unique blend of essential oils called Muscle Pain Remedy to soothe sore and tired muscles. The Muscle Pain Remedy has been diluted in a carrier oil and is ready for application onto your inflamed muscles and it also works wonders for painful conditions such as bursitis.

6 Tips For Better Quality Sleep

How To Sleep Better

Have you heard of sleep hygiene? It’s basically a healthy routine that you perform before bed to ensure you fall asleep quickly and stay asleep throughout the night. A good night’s sleep is achievable with just a few simple tweaks to your nightly routine.

The Power of Routine:

Our bodies crave consistency. Set a regular sleep schedule, going to bed and waking up at the same times each day, even on weekends. This regulates your internal clock, making it easier to drift off and wake up feeling refreshed.

Craft a Sleep Sanctuary:

Your bedroom should be a haven for slumber. Invest in blackout curtains or an eye mask to block light, which disrupts melatonin production. Keep the temperature cool and ensure the room is quiet and clutter-free.

Ditch the Tech:

The blue light emitted from electronic devices suppresses melatonin and tricks your brain into thinking it’s daytime. Power down phones, laptops, and TVs at least an hour before bed. Instead, opt for a relaxing bath, gentle stretches, or reading a book.

Befriend Exercise, but Not at Bedtime:

Regular physical activity promotes better sleep, but avoid strenuous workouts close to bedtime as they can be energizing. Aim for moderate exercise earlier in the day for optimal sleep benefits.

Fuel Your Sleep:

What you eat and drink affects your sleep quality. Avoid heavy meals, caffeine, and alcohol before bed. Opt for calming foods like chamomile tea, bananas, or almonds, and keep hydrated throughout the day.

The Magic of Aromatherapy:

Snorers often prevent themselves from having quality sleep because they wake themselves up during the night. Aromatherapy Clinic created the Anti Snoring Blend to reduce or eliminate snoring and provide you with the best quality sleep.

For insomnia and restlessness, Aromatherapy Clinic’s Relaxing Blend is the perfect natural remedy. Diffuse these pure essential oil blends in an oil burner or electric diffuser, apply directly to a small area of skin behind your ears or drip a few drops into your bath or shower before bed and you’ll notice the difference after a few consecutive nights of use.

By implementing these tips and prioritizing sleep hygiene, you can kiss those sleepless nights goodbye and wake up feeling rejuvenated and ready to conquer your day. Sweet dreams!

Note: If sleep problems persist, consult a doctor to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

Household Uses For Clove Essential Oil

Dried clove buds

There are many interesting uses for specific essential oils. Oil of the clove plant can have many health benefits when used correctly. Continue reading to find out more about how clove essential oil can be helpful around the house.

The difference between clove bud and clove leaf essential oil

The main difference between clove bud essential oil and clove leaf essential oil lies in the part of the clove plant from which each oil is extracted and the chemical composition they contain.

Extraction: Clove bud essential oil is extracted from the flower buds of the clove plant (Syzygium aromaticum). Clove leaf essential oil is derived from the leaves of the clove plant.

Chemical Composition: Clove bud oil is rich in eugenol, a phenolic compound that contributes to its characteristic spicy and warm aroma. Eugenol is known for its antimicrobial and analgesic properties. While clove leaf oil also contains eugenol, its composition may differ slightly from clove bud oil. It tends to have a higher percentage of eugenol acetate.

Aroma: Clove bud oil has a sweet and spicy aroma and is commonly used in aromatherapy for its warming and stimulating qualities. Clove leaf oil has a slightly different aroma compared to clove bud oil, with a fresher and more herbaceous scent.

Uses: Clove bud oil is often used for its various therapeutic benefits, including dental care, pain relief, and as an immune system booster. Clove leaf essential oil shares some similar uses with clove bud oil, such as its antimicrobial properties. However, due to its different aroma profile, it may be preferred in certain blends or formulations.

Using Clove Essential Oil Around The Home

For temporary relief from toothache or gum pain, dilute clove oil with a carrier oil and apply a small amount to the affected area. Consult with a dentist for persistent issues.

Create a natural air freshener by diffusing clove essential oil in your home. Its warm and spicy aroma can help eliminate unpleasant odors and create a cozy atmosphere, especially during colder seasons.

Diffusing clove oil may also contribute to a cleaner indoor environment due to its antimicrobial properties.

Clove essential oil is known for its potent antifungal activity. The active component responsible for this antifungal activity is eugenol. Use clove essential oil as a cleaning solution to kill mould spores.

At Aromatherapy Clinic we source only the highest quality therapeutic grade essential oils. We offer a range of individual essential oils in our online store. If you would like to order an essential oil that isn’t on our list, please contact us and we will do our best to source your desired oil.

Discontinuing Our Rosewood Body Butter: A Closer Look at the Change

In recent years, rosewood essential oil has faced a scarcity that has left enthusiasts and aromatherapy aficionados wondering about the reasons behind its decline. The primary culprit is the overharvesting and unsustainable logging of rosewood trees, particularly those of the Dalbergia genus, from which the essential oil is extracted.

Rosewood trees, with their fragrant heartwood, are slow-growing and vulnerable to exploitation due to their high demand in various industries, such as cosmetics and perfume. As consumer interest in natural and botanical products surged, so did the demand for rosewood essential oil. This increased demand, coupled with lax regulations and inadequate monitoring of logging practices, led to rampant deforestation and depletion of rosewood populations.

Furthermore, rosewood has become a victim of its own popularity. The exquisite aroma and therapeutic properties of the essential oil have made it a sought-after ingredient, resulting in a surge in demand that has outpaced the trees’ ability to regenerate.

In response to environmental concerns and the need for conservation, regulatory bodies have imposed restrictions on the harvesting and trade of rosewood. International agreements, such as the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES), aim to protect rosewood and other endangered species from unsustainable exploitation.

While the scarcity of rosewood essential oil is undoubtedly disheartening, it underscores the importance of sustainable and ethical sourcing practices in the aromatherapy industry. As consumers, we play a pivotal role in promoting the conservation of botanical resources by choosing products derived from responsibly managed sources.

Due to the increased price and scarcity of rosewood essential oil Aromatherapy Clinic has made the decision to discontinue our natural Rosewood Body Butter. We will continue to produce our other popular body butter product, the incredibly nourishing Hempseed Body Butter with Patchouli and Bergamot. Handmade in Australia, our body butter is packed with vitamin E and all natural ingredients that protect and hydrate the skin. Apply 2-3 times per week after your bath or shower for soft, supple skin. Works a treat on dry elbows, knees and cracked heels.
