I received these products for free in exchange for a review. All opinions are 100% my own and I truly enjoyed testing out this product! This information does not substitute for medical advice.
As a fibromyalgia sufferer I understand the complexity of trying to manage painful symptoms. For personal reasons, I use holistic methods for relaxation, aches and stress relief. Part of my fibromyalgia discomfort increases in the spring because of allergies and sinus pressure. Is anyone else sniffling and sneezing like me?!!!
Allergy season is the perfect time to test out a new box of essential oils from Anjou Naturals! I appreciated the fact that Anjou Naturals uses no fillers or synthetics and their products are FDA/USDA tested and approved.
Here are the products I received! Essential Oils from L to R: Lavender, Eucalyptus, Peppermint, Sweet Orange, Lemongrass, Tea Tree.
I have never used Sweet Orange Essential Oil but have heard about its therapeutic properties. The scent of citrus can be useful in room sprays, especially to help cleanse energy from a room. As a therapist, I usually spray Lavender scents within my office to promote peace and calm.
I placed a few drops of the Sweet Orange oil on a cotton ball, zipped it in a plastic bag and placed it near the vent in my office. It definitely provided a clean and fresh scent that makes my office more inviting! I also plan on using an oil diffuser in my home to spread this citrusy scent throughout the house!
Spring allergies have been particularly rough for me and my husband this year. The Peppermint, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree Oils are all beneficial in helping sinus passage ways. Mix one drop of Eucalytpus or Peppermint Oil in a bowl of steaming water. Place your head over the bowl and inhale the steam. This is also a good home remedy for a cold. I rub one drop of peppermint oil with face moisturizer and rub it on my temples before work. It acts as a stress reliever and is helpful when I have sinus pressure. This can also be added to a cotton ball and placed in a bag to carry with you!
These three oils are now stored in my bathroom to be added to warm baths, foot soaks or to lotions for sinus relief and to relieve achy muscles.
I have also learned that placing a drop of Eucalyptus, Tea Tree or Sweet Orange Oil to your washing machine or clothes dryer can help with musty smells! Tea Tree Oil is frequently used in cleaning products for its antiseptic properties.
Spring cleaning?? These oils would be an easy addition to your cleaning regimen! During allergy season I have to wash my dogs’ blankets and bedding more often since they bring in dust and pollen on their fur.
Anjou Naturals was smart for packaging both the Coconut Oil and Essential Oils together. The oils obviously won’t mix well with water but coconut oil is the perfect binding agent for most of your beauty needs.
Personally, I use coconut oil as a weekly leave-in hair conditioner, cuticle rub, lip balm at night, for cooking and as an additive in my dog’s food. Has anyone ever refried fresh pinto beans with coconut oil?? Mmmm….it’s my favorite! But don’t forget to separate your bottle of coconut oil so you can keep one for your beauty routine!
With so many chemicals that are added to our everyday products, I feel better knowing that by simply adding Anjou Naturals Essential Oils and Coconut Oil to my health and beauty regimen, I’m treating my body like the temple it is!!
Which oils would benefit you??
