4 Essential Oil Blends to Increase the Hygge in Your Life

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

We’ve been hearing a lot about the Danish concept of ‘Hygge’  (pronounced ‘hoo-gah’) lately.  Upon further investigation, we’ve  realized that having essential oils in your daily life is a super Hygge move.

The concept of Hygge shouldn’t  be all that foreign to Canadians;  embracing feelings of coziness,  comfort and overall well-being?  We’ve got that covered.  However,  Hygge is also about  slowing down and being content  in the present moment, rather  than in a mental state of ‘go, go,  go’; this isn’t exactly a North  American’s strong suit.

Here’s why Essential Oils are Hygge

7 DIY Recipes to Get You Through Cold & Flu Season

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

You’ve heard the recommendations; Eucalyptus for a chest cold, Thieves Blend for immunity - but what actually makes essential oils an effective form of natural medicine?

Essential Oils are volatile, meaning they can be quickly and easily absorbed by many systems of the body, particularly through inhalation.

Using Essential Oils to Get Healthy
Due to their volatile nature, essential oils are able to travel directly to viral infections, within mucus, in the respiratory system. Using the right essential oils when you’re sick can help to break up mucus, relieve nasal congestion, calm spasmodic coughs, soothe irritated pathways and (best of all) kill the virus itself. You just need to know the best oil to use, and how to use it.

No Diffuser? No Problem! 5 Easy Ways to Diffuse Essential Oils Without a Diffuser

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

It seems no one knows what in the world to do with essential oils unless they've invested in a diffuser; we’re here to debunk that myth!

You don’t need an expensive nebulizer to get the natural aromas of The Aromatherapist Essential Oils and Synergies into your home, office or car. Don’t get us wrong - we love our diffusers. However, sometimes the added moisture a diffuser brings with it isn’t the most ideal scenario for your environment. For example, if you live in a humid climate (ie; Ontario in the summer!) or a basement apartment, you may not want to create more humidity in the air.

It isn’t the moisture that diffuses essential oils, it’s the heat. Not too much heat as to kill the active biochemicals, just enough to create vapour.

Here are some easy (and inexpensive) ways to expose your Aromatherapist Essential Oils and Synergies to heat, without a diffuser…

What Actually Is An Essential Oil?

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

You've heard the buzz, you've smelled some testers... but what actually is this stuff?

We love asking this question, because if we can help our customers to truly understand what an essential oil is, they'll also understand the importance of quality, of organic farming methods, of third party certification etc etc. 

So, what is this elusive liquid everyone is going so nuts over? Is it the plant matter all mushed up? Is it what you get when you squeeze flowers really hard? Mmmm no, not quite.

4 Reasons Not To Hop On the DIY Bandwagon

by Let's Bring Back Flower Power |

We'd like to think the growing popularity of DIY-everything has more to do with a desire for self sufficiency & a smaller ecological footprint, and less to do with everyone's Pinterest addiction; but we'd probably be wrong. 

Regardless of the motive, we're loving it! Working with high quality essential oils to create your own products means you can fulfill your physical needs (combatting blemishes, signs of aging, spider veins etc.) as well as your emotional needs (relaxation, restful sleep, caffeine free energy boost etc.) quickly, easily and naturally. It's also a great way to minimize your ecological footprint (say goodbye to wasteful packaging), save some dollars and learn about Aromatherapy.

We often run into people who have some serious cynicism about joining the DIY Movement...

"Why would I make products when I can just go buy them?"
