Some of Botanica Culture’s Organic Essential Oils

Lavender is a calming oil that helps with panic attacks, calms the nervous system, and is used on minor burns to soothe skin. It is commonly sprayed on pillows or linens, or applied to the neck, chest or temples to help wind down before sleeping.

Peppermint wakens the senses and can increase the oxygen level in the blood just by being inhaled. “One drop of peppermint oil is equivalent to 28 cups of herbal tea,” Mooneyham says. It helps with focus, and when combined with rosemary, which helps with memory and retention, makes a winning work day combination. Peppermint also can calm a troubled tummy and bring down fever.

Lemon is used as an alternative treatment to remove corns and warts. It’s a powerful bactericide and treats minor cuts and wounds as well, can brighten dull skin, helps with immunity and is used as antibacterial cleanser.

Tea Tree Oil is derived from the tea tree plant, Melaleuca alternifolia, and is native to Australia. Indigenous Australian people have used the oil to treat skin infections and wounds since they first made a poultice of the leaves and covered their skin with the homeopathic remedy. The oil (and even rubbing natural leaves on the skin) has been shown to have several different useful antiseptic, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties, some proven better than others.

Essential oils can support us through many of our everyday activities and life changes but it is important to understand there are different grades of oils!
