Essential oils have the power to boost your mood, whether you choose the calming soothing effects of Lavender or uplifting, reviving effects of Eucalyptus. A thoughtful present when paired with a Sally Caulwell print for nature lovers. We have chosen four of our most popular oils to feature here but we also stock a larger selection in-store in our Drury Street shop.
Bergamot essential oil is part of the citrus family and an old hybrid between lemon and bitter orange. It is grown mostly in southern Italy and has an elegant scent with tart and sweet facets with floral and spicy undertones. It is a quintessential ingredient in colognes and an ideal oil to freshen a room.
Known for a fresh, aromatic and woody scent, Eucalyptus is a popular ingredient used to refresh and relax. Sourced from eucalyptus globulus leaves in Spain, this is a 100% pure essential oil ideal to use to clear the head or relieve symptoms of a cold. Use in a diffuser, a burner, or simply add a few drops to a large, steamy bowl of water to refresh the sinuses and the skin.
Sourced from Lavandula angustifolia flowers and steams from the South of France, Lavender has a perfect balance of aromatic, floral and sweet notes. Well known to support relaxation, it's also popular for hair and skincare thanks to its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. Add 1 or 2 drops to a pillowcase at night to aid deep sleep.
Lemon is one of the most popular citruses thanks to its flavourful juice rich in Vitamin C. Its precious oil is distilled from its peel and has a lovely juicy, fresh and zesty scent. Its antimicrobial and antiseptic benefits make it a popular ingredient in hygiene and cleaning formulas.
Hailing from Indonesia where the majority of this precious oil is still produced, patchouli is a grass, which, after being cut and dried, yields a beautiful woody and earthy moss-like and slightly leathery scent. Frequently used in perfume making, it is a versatile oil with antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties.
Directions: Enjoy essential oils in a diffuser, as a room spray, in a hot bath or as a massage oil. Do not use more than 5-10 drops of essential oil for every 20ml of carrier oil, alcohol or water. Each is sold separately in a 12ml blue glass bottle.
