How do you use essential oils?
Essential oils are concentrated and for the majority of essential oils, it is important to dilute them in jojoba/olive oil and/or any vegetable based medium when using on the body. For dilution amounts for adults and children (see image).
When using essential oils for environmental aroma, you can use a diffuser which can be either electric or candle lit, with water in the vessel or a more clinical diffuser uses (a lot) of essential oil alone. When the essential oils are warmed or agitated, the aromatic molecules rise and are released into the air.
How are essential oils produced?
Essential oils are concentrated plant essences produced mainly by hydro/steam distillation, and also by expression (squeezing the rind of a fruit). The definition of an Essential oil, as far as the industry goes, is that essential oils are extracted in as pure and natural a process as possible. There are a number of ways to pull aromatics from a plant and some involve using chemical solvents. In Aromatherapy, these products are not considered essential oils, but may be used in the perfume industry. Absolutes and C02 extracts may have a place in Aromatherapy, but they are not considered essential oils.
What does it mean to harvest sustainably?
It is important to me that my impact on Pachamama (Mother Earth) be gentle, loving and in reciprocity, therefore, I always give offerings to the plants for their gift of allowing me to make healing products. Since I am receiving from the plant, I feel it is only appropriate to gift back something that grows on me, and so I save my hair to give to the plant when I harvest. When I Wildcraft St. John’s Wort flowers and Wild Roses from nature, I connect with the plant, and ask first. Upon receiving an answer, giving thanks and making prayers, I harvest with good intention and take only what I need. That is how I harvest sustainably
Can I take your essential oils internally?
This question is a very hot topic and the short answer is that unless you are working with a certified aromatherapist, I do not recommend anyone to ingest any essential oils. As someone who has been immersed in the Aromatherapy industry for over 20 years, this topic is controversial. Many MLM representatives are telling people that they can drink essential oils. This kind of language and recommendation is dangerous, and can cause a multitude of health issues. I have read stories of burning of the trachea, damage to the internal organs and tissues as well as major skin issues, which have been falsely diagnosed by those same representatives that they are just detoxing and to continue using them!!! There is plenty of information on the internet of people who have told their stories, following major health issues. There IS a place for the internal use of essential oils under the advice of a certified aromatherapist, who has been trained to take into consideration the essential oils being used, knowing the species, the constituents and the situation in which the essential oils are needed.
The REAL question is about QUALITY. Pure, Natural (Genuine) and Organic are the three integral components I employ when sourcing essential oils from within the Aromatherapy industry.
All of the products by Amaru Aromatherapy are extremely special, however the Fire collection is a stand out for me.
It’s calming yet warming all at the same time. I can’t get enough of my salve, roller and oil… I find it especially good for travelling or long days in the office.
One of my new favorites! This insense is incredible! A longtime lover of insense, a lover of rich, beautiful, complex aromas. This stuff is incredible! Grounding, calming, yet uplifting & joyful. Magic! 🙏❤️
Heidi is a beautiful soul, full of love & light. Her energy is evident in the beauty of the products she creates. Hard to choose just 1 favorite item ( I have so many). Love the Fire blend for cold season and she makes the most magical, calming insense blend.
I love this roll on! I could smell it all day. Great for a pick me up:)
I loved this silky oil - I was having trouble finding products that only contain the Nootka rose, so I was really happy to find this lovely oil. Highly recommend!
Use it with hydrosol to refresh the skin
Love the fire blend, have been using it for years and it is definitely a favourite of mine. Great for opening airways with allergies, colds and stuffy nose. Use it mostly at bedtime but good during the day as well.
Water.... allow it to run over me. This synergy oil has so many levels and scents to it. It changes as you breathe it in so you smell all of the different ingredients. This one allows me to relax be calm and feel loved. Greif is a hard one... and Water is my oil of choice to help me heal and move through this journey. Thankx Heidi. xoxo
When feeling a lil sluggish I like to use the Air synergy. This one awakens my senses and gets me going. Such a beautiful scent.
The fire is one that I have been using a lot. My son has been getting a lot of cold lately. The Fire synergy is immediately in the diffuser.
I love the smell it make me super calm and warm feeling. Definitely a must in the collection.
I am so in love with this synergy... I put it in my diffuser and I just couldn't stop breathing it in. Feeling grounded and surrounded in love, it's definitely my go to.
This blend is to date the best I've ever come across. The scent is perfect and diffuses for hours. I use this in the diffuser when I'm doing school work at home and it truly helps me with grounding and concentration. As soon as opened the bottle and took the first sniff I know this was a grounding Earth potion and mostly likely what the Goddess herself would smell like in an earthly body!
This blend is surreal and has some of my favorite ingredients! I wear it all day, not just at night, and it's always very soothing. It's also such a wonderful perfume! With my current high stress life it is so soothing and came to me at the best possible time!
I am a big essential oil fan and this has been my favourite blend for many many years. It calms my mind, body and soul. Grounding… like the earth. I get many compliments when I wear this one. Men and women love it but most importantly, I love it ❤️
I have one in my purse, my car and my bathroom. This spritzer clears the energy in a space without any smoke. Smelling it is a complete reset. I couldn’t recommend this product any more!
