In biblical times, Turmeric was often referred to as ‘gold’ and many historians believe that the gold the wise men brought to baby Jesus was actually turmeric! This key botanical has a long history in health practices that have inspired modern use for turmeric today.

Often called the “king of oils” Frankincense is a great “all rounder”. It is renowned as one of the most prized and precious essential oils due to its extraordinary health benefits. This is my favourite oil of all time!
I use it every day to keep me calm, focused and happy. It’s wonderful to diffuse to promote feelings of pece and overall wellness. It’s also great to rejuvenate your skin and help reduce the appearance of imperfections. A lovely way to use it is to dilute with fractionated coconut oil and rub Frankincence into your hands for a warm, soothing and uplifting effect. It has many powerful health benefits (visit www.aromaticscience.com for an extensive range of peer reviewed studies). A drop of Frankincense essential oil in a glass of water can give you the perfect boost to help you through the Christmas Season.
