Essential oils have been floating around little universe for a couple of years now. A spritz here and there at the end of yoga class. During a massage they were placed into that little machine that puffs them into the air. I had a colleague who even used them in the office, but I never thought about purchasing them myself. Two weeks ago as I was running low on melatonin (I use it regularly to help me sleep), I decided to investigate essential oils as an alternative. Living in Delray Beach, I drive by 21 Drops and their gardens on the regular...so it seemed like the best place to start.
21 Drops uses combined essential oils to treat and prevent, nurture, fortify and heal. They use 24 different oils in 21 varying combinations.
#17 Digest: Fuses cardamom seed oil, ginger rhizome oil, German chamomile flower oil, and sweet orange fruit rind oil to ease the discomfort.
I also picked up #21 Inspire, which is made with black pepper, cedarwood ground and sandalwood and jojoba oil. All together they release blocked energy, support confidence and quiets mental activity.
So far they have all helped immensely. I've been falling asleep quickly, feeling refreshed when I wake up, and when I had a little tickle earlier this week the Immunity seemed to do the trick.
They are perfect for dropping into your bag and carrying with you. This first dip into essential oils has me wanting to explore more, particularly "De-stress," "Focus" and "Headache."
