dōTERRA’s Easy Air is a proprietary blend of 8 essential oils that supports our respiratory system and emotional issues of breath and clearing.
dōTERRA’s Buddha Wood has this amazing smoky woody aroma.
It’s sourced from Eastern Australia, and native to our sunburnt country. It has been used by our First Australians for many years for it’s powerful properties.
dōTERRA’s proprietary blend called Whisper works with our individual chemistry to create our own personal signature pure-fume. For me, it’s a musky aroma. For others, it’s a floral aroma. I often receive compliments when I wear this blend as a pure-fume.
Citronella is commonly known as an insect repellant, which is great at this time of the year in Australia. I love having options, and playing with blends so that we don’t ‘smell like insect repellant’ but rather smell like a divine pure-fume (aka perfume).
But, did you know that citronella is much more than that?
Do you smell a chocolate undertone when you smell dōTERRA’s insect repellent blend, TerraArmour? I do. I find it utterly addictive. Personally, I feel it’s from the combination of Arborvitae and Vanilla Bean Absolute.
TerraArmour has been one of our household staple essential oils, especially during mozzie season. This year, my girls started piano lessons, so Glenn and I sit outside chatting quietly whilst they are in their lessons, but there are always lots of mozzies.
In it’s simplest form, I throw a bottle of TerraArmour into my handbag and we apply a few drops from the bottle on our skin. It has a fractionated coconut oil in the blend, so it’s safe to use it straight from the bottle. Another way we use it, is to add 20 drops into a 50ml spray bottle with cool boiled water and a pinch of salt, and spray away.
I love the spicy scent of black spruce essential oil. It’s great to have spicy almost perfume-like notes of essential oils to add depth to your pure-fumes and personal care products.
When I first smelt black spruce it reminded me so much of my beloved douglas fir essential oil. It’s that fresh earthy scent coming from the needles and branches. Teleporting my imagination to a forest. My happy place. The scent immediately soothes and relaxes me.
I was completely drawn to using it in pure-fumes as a top note with a difference.
Well, as promised, here is my signature rollerball pure-fume I have made for a handful of my wholesale customers.
You see when each of my wholesale customers attend a workshop, not only to do we have fun, but they also receive a special thank you gift from me. This pure-fume blend is an example of one of those thank you gifts.
I have an absolute love for Grapefruit essential oil at the moment.
My favourite way to use grapefruit essential oil is to drop 1 drop into a glass then top it with soda water. We have a soda stream, as it’s more cost effective. I find it incredibly refreshing. It’s also a great way to detox our bodies, and a digestive tonic. I find I always feel better whenever I drink it.
However, I also love it’s citrus scent as a top note in rollerball pure-fume blends, and it’s equally pleasant smelling diffused.
Were you lucky enough to get a bottle or 2 of Citrus Bloom?
I managed to get 1, but wished I brought at least 1 more bottle, as I can’t get enough of it. I used alot of the bottle making a signature ‘pure-fume’ blend for a selection of my Essential Olie Tree Wholesale Customers.
They all loved it.
I have to admit when dōTERRA released the turmeric essential oil at the 2018 Global Convention I was super excited to start using it. Primarily, for it’s internal benefits for anti-inflammatory and anti-rheumatic purposes.
It was another story when I got my first bottle, as I was slightly repulsed by the smell. I am however pleased to say that it’s since grown on me. Nowadays, I like the spicy base note depth it adds to blends. Continue reading Turmeric Rollerball Blends
