Our Essential Oils
The process of taking living plant matter from the earth, distilling and condensing it to its purest essence, to an ESSENTIAL OIL, is a near mystical process. These fragrant essential oils each contain hundreds of beneficial molecules that hold endless healing benefits. We have spent significant time and energy ensuring that each individual essential oil we offer in our product range is of the purest and highest quality. You can rest assured that each of our essential oils from farming, harvesting, and processing, meets the highest possible standards.
Peppermint (Mentha Piperita)
Has been a classic essential oil choice for the treatment of nausea for many years. Studies have shown it to be effective for reducing PONV, chemotherapy induced nausea, pregnancy related nausea, and colonic spasms during colonoscopy. Peppermint is believed to exert its influence on the gastric lining and colon through its alcohol compounds, menthone and menthol.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Has many benefits for patients experiencing nausea in the perioperative setting. It has a strong component of anxiolysis which is very helpful in reducing the stress of nausea and vomiting after surgical procedures. Lavender is absorbed quite rapidly when inhaled, achieving relaxation and reduction of anxiety via a serotonergic neurotransmission pathway.
Spearmint (Mentha Spicata)
Has similar antiemetic benefits as peppermint but may prove effective for longer periods of time. A recent study found it to be effective for reducing events of both nausea and vomiting. It also contains menthol but it is the alcohol molecule, carvone, in Spearmint that provides its distinctive pleasant aroma.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum Zeylanicum)
Among its many beneficial uses, has been shown to reduce fatigue and promote alertness, in addition to boosting motivation and performance.
Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Globulus)
Is an essential oil very commonly added to cosmetics, toothpastes, and lozenges. It has a long history of use for its stimulating properties. Studies show it increases reaction times after inhalation.
Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
Has long been associated with memory enhancement. Studies have revealed significant improvement in memory and task performance after inhalation.
Clary Sage (Salvia Sclerea)
Is an essential oil used for improving mood. Some studies have shown its efficacy in improving mental clarity, memory retrieval, and alertness. Research also has shown this oil to promote feelings of contentment and calmness.
Bergamot (Citrus Bergamia)
Is an essential oil with many studies supporting its anti-anxiety effects and stress reduction properties, including ones that correlate EEG and vital sign changes with reported mood changes.
Jasmine (Jasminum Grandiflorum)
When inhaled, has been found to promote a calm mood state via an autonomic nervous system pathway. Study participants have reported feeling uplifted and relief of depression with its use.
Ylang Ylang (Cananga Odorata)
Has been used extensively in history for its profound calming and relaxing properties. Modern studies have shown participants reporting feelings of relaxation and “harmony” after its use.
Lemon Oil (Ctrus Limon)
Is an essential oil with multiple benefits. A recent study showed significant reduction in pregnancy related nausea and vomiting when inhaled.
Sweet Orange Oil (Citrus Sinensis)
Has popular anti-stress benefits. A recent Brazilian study showed participants who inhaled this oil were less anxious when exposed to stressful events, with the effects lasting well after exposure.
Ginger (Zingiber Officinale)
Is a traditional remedy for nausea. The molecule Zingiberene is believed to play a role in its anti-inflammatory and antiemetic properties. The botanical form of ginger has been shown to be effective for PONV, chemotherapy induced nausea, pregnancy related nausea, and motion sickness. Most studies have been conducted with oral ingestion; however, inhalation of the essential oil vapor can convey the same benefits without the difficulty of swallowing and retaining consumed tablets when nauseated and vomiting.
