What is essential oil and what are the benefits?
Essential oils are highly concentrated compounds expelled through distillation from various parts of a plant or flower. This concentrated oil includes the very molecules used by the plant to act as a natural repellant and/or attractor, environmental shield, and self-healing system. Once these molecules are extracted they can then be used to help us in many of the same ways. Below you'll find a few of our fave oils along with their unique healing properties.

Hygge is the Danish word used to describe a moment or feeling of complete coziness and charm. Often thoughts similar to one of cashmere woven throws and a warmly lit fire on a wintery night come to mind when thinking of complete Hygge, but one must not forget the power of the olfactory senses. Below are a few scents to keep in mind when search to obtain Hygge.
Yuzu + Ginger
Imagine the smells of warm salt, citrus, and spices lingering in the air as you nap in a hammock on the beach while the sun drops below the horizon.
Geranium + Wood
The clean, open air scent that the combination of geranium and layers of earth and wood create can best be described with the scenario of open windows of a country home letting in the sweet smells of the surrounding forrest on a sun drenched, cool afternoon.
Blood Orange + Cognac
What better combination to bring the mind to a candle lit scene lounging on a soft buttery couch the color of burnt sugar, sipping a perfectly concocted Old Fashioned.
Rose + Cocoa
The notes of cocoa, vanilla, rose, and cinnamon can transport you to a crisp spring morning surrounded by beautifully arranged bouquets of fully bloomed roses.
The art of Feng Shui uses the forces of energy to link the human spirit to its surroundings. It is known to bring not only peace but good luck to those who practice. When combining scent to your Feng Shui practice you gain the ability to heighten emotional responses to the ultimate degree.
Bedroom + Guest Rooms
This is the most sacred of spaces in your home. You want complete Zen and tranquility, so using calming note combinations are key. Try lighting a stick of White Sage + Yerba Santa as well as misting Clary Sage + Lavender on your sheets before snuggling in at night.
Bathroom + Half Bath
To balance out the overabundance of water you'll want to add scents of earth as well as tapping into the antiseptic properties of essential oils. Reach for a stick of Palo Santo or Palo Santo + Lemongrass spray to add a touch of bergamot.
Entryway + Living Space
Cleansing scents are best for entryways and spaces of communal gathering. Light, airy, and inviting should be the idea here. Try spraying Sandalwood + Chamomile in your entryway for a welcoming mood.
Kitchen + Dining Room
You want to use a scent that complements and not fights the aromas of your beautifully prepared meal. Stick to citrus and spice for this area. Consider Clementine + Cardamom for this area of your home.
We tend to shy away from frilly, overly sweet scent combinations here. Our scent combos are deep, rich, and moody.
Whether it's a blend of citrus with herbaceous undertones or florals with a hint of wood and spice, these blends can be enjoyed by everyone with a wide range of tastes. No scent is too feminine or masculine.
