Essential Oils For Dummies

Aloha Ajali lovers!

I know I know! This blog has been non-existent for a while now, and I sincerely apologize for the lengthy disappearance but never fear we’re back now with a bang and will be updating our blog (at least) once a week!

Have you ever wondered about essential oils? What they are? What they do? And why they’re so important? (at least in our books they are) Well basically essential oils are oils that are extracted from plants. Plants are life – literally, so these oils are great not just for aromatherapy or making your home smell incredible, they can improve the appearance of your skin, overall health and wellness and even the environment – hence why they’re called essential oils – get it? Haha!

Essential oils are often grouped together based on their aroma called “categories”, for example:

  • Citrus- orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit
  • Earthy- patchouli, oakmoss, frankincense
  • Therapeutic- lavender, rosemary, tea tree, eucalyptus
  • Invigorating- peppermint, spearmint

Now depending on what you want to achieve, or which ailment you want to treat, these oils can work wonders!

Our Signature Oil Blend and Pure Sea Salt and Raw Sugar body scrubs  are infused with oils that can either wake you up and uplift you first thing in the morning (like lemongrass or  peppermint) or relax you and put you in a good mood after a hectic work day (cue in lavender).

I personally love all things  lemongrass and our Lemongrass Raw Sugar Body Scrub made from raw turbinado sugar and infused with a cocktail of essential oil goodness makes my skin baby sift everytime I use it.

Till next time peace and love. Don’t forget Eat well. Live well and be Ajali – fied.
