Palmarosa (Cymbopobon martinii), Geranium (Pelargonium x asperum), Roman Chamomile (Chamaemelum nobile), Rose Otto (Rosa damascena), Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia), Rosewood (Aniba roseadora), Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata), Bergamot (Citrus bergamia), Jasmine Absolute* (Jasminum grandiflorum), and Lemon (Citrus limonum)
An uplifting blend for aches, pains and stretch marks.
Application Suggestions (see Essential Oil Usage for more information and a dilution chart.)
Topical: Dilute with a carrier oil, unscented cream or lotion and apply on area of concern as desired. To avoid potential skin sensitization issues with Ylang Ylang, you will want to dilute 1 part of Mother's Blend to 8 parts carrier (11%) or less.
This works well in a roll-on applicator with the carrier oil of your choice.
Inhalation: Diffuse or directly inhale from the bottle, a nasal inhaler or a place a few drops on a handkerchief.
*Jasmine Grandiflorum is an absolute from India - Premium quality from the freshest flowers. Jasmine is actually an "essence" not an essential oil. Absolutes are solvent extracted products. They are produced by a multi-step process which involves first extracting the flower (or other biomass) with a non-polar solvent such as hexane. After the hexane is evaporated, a waxy product is obtained called the concrete. The concrete is then extracted using a polar solvent such as ethanol. The polarity of ethanol allows extraction of the volatile aromatics from the concrete while leaving behind the non-polar plant waxes which don't dissolve well in ethanol. Finally, the ethanol is evaporated to leave behind the absolute, which will typically have 1-5% ethanol remaining in it and sometimes a trace of hexane, depending on the method used.
Avoid contact with the eye. Essential oils are lipophilic, meaning they are attracted to fat—like the membranes of your eye and skin. Essential oils are hydrophobic, meaning they do not like water. Flushing with water will only send the essential oil back to the eye's membranes. Wiping with carrier oil will create another fat for the essential oil to be attracted to other than the membranes of the eye. We’ve not known this to cause permanent injury or long-term discomfort, but if you feel concerned, please call your doctor if necessary.
