From time to time, it’s best for you to take a breather in this fast-paced life and seek inner healing by immersing yourself in the relaxing, breathtaking ambiance of nature. However, it’s easier said than done. You have so many things to do in order to achieve your goals, so it can be a little difficult to make time for it. Fortunately, there has been research that showed bringing Mother Nature to the comforts of your own sanctuary may be a good natural alternative.
Dr. Qing Li, the leading expert in forest medicine, wrote in his book that one great way to experience the healing power of nature at home is through aromatherapy. He recommends bathing in the pure, natural essential oil scents that closely resemble fragrances we associate with nature, such as flowers, wood and lemon.
This spring, the season where the beauty of nature is in full bloom, wrap yourself with the calming, natural scent of our very own Douceur Florale essential oil. This pure essential oil blend has light, rich and sweet fragrance that will fill your senses with comfortable warmth and take you to a vast field of lush, ethereal flowers, surrounded by the panoramic view of towering trees swaying along each whisper of the wind.
DOUCEUR FLORALE FOR A RELAXING SPRING
Douceur Florale essential oil lets you experience a spring full of floral sweetness, its literal English translation, in your space with the captivating fusion of Clary Sage, Neroli, Amyris, Sandalwood New Caledonia, Lemon, Melissa, Tangerine, and Sweet Orange.
Flowers like Clary Sage and Neroli bring out the motivation to keep a serene lifestyle. Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea) gives you warmth with its crisp, spicy scent heightened with notes of wood and amber, while Neroli (Citrus aurantium) is a luscious harmony of floral and citrus scents. Its light, honeyed aroma will help wake you up to a bright outlook in life.
A sniff of the peaceful essential oils Amyris and Sandalwood inspire inner peace, given the gentle pine-y fragrance of Amyris essential oil (Amyris balsamifera) with undertones of vanilla , as well as the grounding, deep, rich and woody scent of Sandalwood New Caledonia (Santalum austrocaledonicum).
For a relaxing atmosphere that inspires vibrance and tranquility, the natural aromatherapy oils Lemon, Melissa, Tangerine, and Orange will help you with that. Lemon (Citrus limon) is a serene scented oil that freshens up your mind with its clean, fruity and sharp aroma. Meanwhile, Lemon Balm or Melissa essential oil (Melissa officinalis) smells slightly herbaceous and lemony, and it gives off an effect that helps you tone your emotions down. It’s the same with Tangerine (Citrus reticulata blanco) and its concentrated, sweet and citrusy scent, together with Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis), a pure essential oil with honeyed, juicy notes.
All these essential oils except Sweet Orange are extracted through steam distillation. Sweet Orange essential oils are extracted by the cold pressing of orange rinds instead.
BEING ONE IN NATURE WITH DOUCEUR FLORALE
To fully experience a holistic immersion of a visit to nature, Dr. Li suggests looking for the spot or room where you feel the safest. Stay away from your phone, or anything that can cause distractions. Your focus should only be on you, as you open all your senses to the tranquility of nature. Keep your space at a comfortable lighting and temperature, let the soft songs of the wind fill the room, and breathe in the serene scent of spring in Douceur Florale essential oil.
For an essential oils diffuser, the aromatherapy-recommended amount is three to five drops of essential oil per 100ml of water. An excellent alternative way to use it is through room mist. All you have to do is mix 30 to 60 drops of essential oil with 4 oz. water in a mister bottle.
While natural essential oils are generally safe to use, it’s still recommended to exercise caution or consult your physician especially if you have certain conditions and fragrance sensitivities. Store the bottles in a cool, dry place, and keep them away from the sun since they contain flammable components.
It's just like what they say; if there’s a will there’s a way. Even in the comfort of your home, you can still take care of your wellbeing while enjoying the relaxing wonders of spring and Mother Nature, with the help of our Douceur Florale essential oil.
