Nurture Peace Essential Oil is a blend of Lavender, Rosewood, Juniper and Geranium to help with everyday stresses and strains.
Lavender True – Lavendula Angustifolia – Lavender has been documented as a therapeutic agent as far back as the ancient Greeks and Romans. Both the dried foliage and essential oil have remained continuously popular as both therapeutic and cosmetic agents to the present day (Cavanagh and Wikinson, 2002). The plant is commonly purported to have anti-depressant, anxiolytic and sedative properties, thus its essential oil has been used often for relaxation.
Rosewood – Aniba Rosaeodora – Rosewood has not been widely used in traditional medicine systems, rather as a material for making furniture. However, its essential oil is reportedly useful for the relief of nervous tension. Linalool is the major constituent of rosewood oil, constituting 82-95% (Price and Price, 2011). Research has shown linalool to exert a relaxant effect on the central nervous system. Furthermore, rosewood oil is reportedly stimulating and uplifting for fatigue and useful for depression (Price and Price 2011).
Juniper – Juniperus communis – Juniper was referenced in the Bible, inferring its ability to relieve fatigue (Sellar, 1997).
Geranium – Pelargonium graveolens – Geranium is reportedly anxiolytic. Tasev, Toleva and Balabanova (1969) also reported that atomised geranium increased attention spans, concentration capacity and work rhythms, and shortened reflex times in 48 medical students (Price and Price, 2011)
