Despite what has gone before, the turning over of a calendar year has us embracing positivity. Somehow ringing in the New Year with ‘Auld Lang Syne’ as the clock strikes midnight heralds opportunity, a new start and a chance for happiness. These sentiments may be short-lived, but we all know that a positive attitude breeds positivity, and what better way than surrounding yourself with positive friends? And we are here to introduce you to 3 new positivity BFF’s in the form of essential oils - Rosemary, Jasmine and Clary Sage.
A positive mindset and a happy outlook are known to boost overall wellbeing and impact our general health. We realise that life is not free of problems, but it is how we deal with them that matters.
So why not surround yourself with the energy and essence of organic essential oils - nature’s pure positivity droplets?
The aromatic compounds trigger a response in the limbic system of the brain, helping to balance your moods and restore a sense of serenity and joy.
Rosemary’s name comes from the Latin meaning ‘dew of the sea.’ (You see, you are already feeling happier). 😊 When steam distilled into an organic essential oil, the chemical makeup of 'Rosemary officianalis' (1,8 Cineole and alpha-pinene) offers therapeutic and renewing properties that can be energizing, uplifting and calming - especially when diffused. And if a long day has you feeling tired and overwhelmed, a few relaxing drops in your bath will soothe body and soul.
We all know that when you are having a good hair day, you immediately feel more positive and confident. Organic Rosemary oil is known to promote healthy-looking hair. Give it a try by adding few drops to a carrier oil and massaging into your scalp.
The rejuvenating scent of Rosemary essential oil also makes it a firm favorite for massaging into tired muscles. Dilute a few drops with a carrier oil of choice.
The name 'Jasmine' is Persian and means ‘Gift from God,’ which is appropriate for an essential oil derived from flowers. Organic Jasmine extract comes from the white flowers of the Jasmine plant.
Research has indicated that Jasmine extract offers antidepressant properties - relieving mild symptoms of depression and improving moods. The best way to benefit from the romantic and sweet fragrance of Jasmine oil is through an aromatherapy massage, inhaling it directly or adding to a diffuser. To uplift your mood and start your day with a positive outlook, dilute a few drops in a carrier oil and rub into the bottom of your feet and your pulse points in the morning.
The calming scent of Jasmine essential oil may also improve symptoms such as insomnia, palpitations and irritability.
Jasmine extract does tend to be quite pricey. This is because the delicate petals cannot be distilled like other flowers, and so the highly concentrated absolute is made from thousands of freshly picked petals to produce a 5 ml bottle of Jasmine extract. But then again, you cannot put a price on happiness and positivity.
Meet Clary Sage
Clary is an Irish variant of Claire and means ‘bright.’ No wonder Clary Sage is a BFF positivity essential oil! The flowers and leaves are steam distilled and it’s soothing, herby and floral fragrance helps to create a calming and balancing atmosphere when emotions are heightened - making it one of the most relaxing oils.
Clary Sage contains linalool and linalyl acetate which are said to improve moods and promote calm. And this oil really steps up as a BFF oil during menstruation. Diluted in a carrier oil and massaged onto the abdomen or added to a bath will help relieve PMS and any other tension.
Meet Sanctus Essence
When it comes to organic essential oils, Sanctus Essence is also your BFF, offering you nature’s healing touch and therapeutic effects in tiny bottles of pure positivity and happiness.
