Essential Oil of the Month: Petitgrain – The Stress Relieving Aphrodisiac!

Petitgrain (Citrus aurantium bigaradia Rutaceae) translates to small grains. It comes from the immature bitter orange.

Stem distilled from Twigs, leaves and stems.

It has a sharp green, fresh orange, floral with a touch of woodiness.

Note: Top & Middle

Chakra: Root & Heart

Chakra Color: Yellow

Blends well with:

Basil, bergamot, coriander, geranium, grapefruit, jasmine, lavender, lemon, lime, mandarin, neroli, orange, palmarosa, rosewood, sandalwood and ylang ylang.

Properties:

It treats acne, fatigue, oily skin, insomnia, and stress. It is an antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, antidepressant, deodorant, nervine and sedative substance. It encourages a balanced monthly cycle for women. This oil can help to release denial, avoidance and self judgment.

It is energizing, reassuring, stabilizing and uplifting. It is considered an aphrodisiac. It inspires strength and commitment.

Essential Oil should not be applied directly to the skin but in carrier oils, putting the oils directly on the skin is too harsh due to their concentrated form. Add a few drops essential oil to the carrier oil.

If you are pregnant, receiving cancer treatment, or have a weakened immune system the use of essential oils is not recommended!

While essential oil will not go rancid, carrier oils can. Store your carrier oils in a cool, dry, and dark place.

Kakadu Plums The New “It” Skincare Ingredient!

Terminalia ferdinandiana, also called the gubingebillygoat plumKakadu plum or murunga, is a flowering plant native to Australia.

 

Its vitamin C concentration may be as high as 1000–5300 mg/100g 

 

That’s 55 Xs the vitamin C than oranges!

It was used as a traditional medicine for the treatment of numerous ailments. The fruits were eaten by Australian Aborigines on long treks or hunting trips and were considered more valuable as a medicine rather than as a food. The inner bark of the tree was used to treat a variety of skin disorders and infections including wounds, sores and boils.

  


 

Together, with other antioxidants (like vitamin e and lutein), minerals (like zinc and iron to name a few!), bioactivs and gallic and ellagic acids (which have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties), it’s no surprise many brands have included it as a key ingredient in their products.
