Blog title 900x400.jpg


For this week’s blog, we wanted to highlight some oils that you may not know a lot about. Also, it’s been a while, so we wanted to give you some recipes too!

An oil that’s relatively new to our inventory that you probably haven’t heard of is Galbanum. It’s a shame this oil doesn’t get more recognition, as it’s fantastic for a wide variety of ailments:

  1. It fights parasites, fungi, and bacteria in both humans and pets. It’s also a powerful, natural insecticide, something we’ll all be turning to more during the summer months.

  2. Its ability to improve circulation and detoxify the body contributes to its ability to combat rheumatism and arthritis, by ridding the body of excess water, salt, and uric acid.

  3. Galbanum is anti-aging and acne fighting. It’s been said to give an “Organic Facelift”. It tightens skin and promotes the regeneration of new, healthy tissue, making it a great option for tightening skin after weight loss or pregnancy and lightening scars. It also fights the cause of acne, rather than just treating the symptom like most acne fighting products out there.

  4. Galbanum is one of the most powerful natural decongestants out there. It's especially effective during chronic bouts of bronchitis, and breaking up congestion associated with upper respiratory infections.

 We used to only carry German Chamomile, so when we were able to start sourcing Roman Chamomile, we were so excited for the vast daily applications of the oil.

  1. It’s a super powerful sedative - both physical and emotional distress are addressed with the use of this oil. It’s to be diffused during times of high anxiety, anger, or intense physical pain associated with recovery from injuries, surgeries, etc. It’s also a potent pain reliever for muscle and joint pain.

  2. It’s an effective anti-depressant. Its ability to cultivate a calming influence and combat anxiety and irritability makes it a great addition to depression/anxiety blends.

  3. It should be in every essential oil users’ first aid kit - It is invaluable in regards to pain relief pertaining to the following ailments: Arthritis, insect bites, headaches, burns, sprains, toothaches, and teething. It also promotes the fast healing of fresh cuts and wounds.

  4. Roman Chamomile helps soothe severely irritated skin. It’s a natural astringent, so it helps shrink pores and helps treat dermatitis, making it a great option for those with eczema and dry, sensitive skin.
