Clove is More Important than You Think!!

Clove / Syzgium Aromaticum

The contrast of sweet and spicy aromas and flavors found in Clove essential oil is very exotic and exciting.  Clove is not only a popular cooking spice, but is also highly favored for its numerous health benefits!


Clove contains the largest antioxidant value of any oil, which helps protect cells from damaging free radicals.  It is also revered around the world for its anti-inflammatory properties.  Clove diffuses well alone or with many other essential oils, making it a popular choice to keep on hand in homes, offices, and other spaces around the world.


*  Place a few drops of Clove oil on a cotton ball and swab in the mouth to promote oral and respiratory health

*  Mix Clove, Orange, Tangerine, and Cinnamon oils in an Améo diffuser to create a wintery holiday scent

*  Add 8-10 drops of Clove oil to 2 oz. of Améo Fractionated Coconut Oil and massage into troubled areas to help soothe sore and achy muscles

*  Diffuse Clove oil in an Améo diffuser, or rub into palms and inhale, to promote normal intestinal function

*  Diffuse Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, and Rosemary oils in an Améo diffuser to purify the air in your home, car, or office

*  Diffuse Clove oil in an Améo diffuser to eliminate unpleasant odors – for example when cooking fish

Love Me Some Cinnamon

I use Cinnamon in my diet every day! Sprinkle it here.. sprinkle it there…OR use the essential oil!!

Cinnamon / Cinnamomum verum

The use of cinnamon is recorded in Ebers Papyrus, one of history’s oldest Egyptian medical texts; this document, which dates back to about 1500 BC, contains more than 700 remedies for multiple symptoms. Cinnamon is only harvested every two years, and then steam distilled, to create the highest quality oil possible. Cinnamon essential oil is known for its variety of uses and applications.


The scent of Cinnamon oil stirs the appetite, arouses and warms the senses, and can create feelings of comfort. Other benefits include helping maintain healthy blood sugar levels and promoting normal immune system function. Mentally, Cinnamon oil helps release frustration and anger and attracts wealth by transforming our beliefs about limitations and shortcomings into prosperity and abundance.


* Diffuse Cinnamon, Clove, Eucalyptus Radiata, Lemon, and Rosemary oils in an Améo diffuser to help purify the air!
* Add 1 drop of Cinnamon oil to certain dishes when cooking to enhance flavor!
* Add 1-2 drops Cinnamon oil to a warm bath to awaken the senses and increase energy levels!
* Dilute to 20% Cinnamon oil and 80% Améo Fractionated Coconut Oil and rub over the heart, into the soles of the feet, or around the neck to increase your body temperature!
* Add 1 drop of Cinnamon oil to Daily Tea, Premium Tea, or ice water to freshen breath and cleanse the digestive track!
* Mix Cinnamon, Orange, Clove , and Tangerine oils in an Améo diffuser to create a wintery holiday scent!

I used to add regular powdered cinnamon to my tea…however, you get the grit of the powder. The oil is améozing!!!

Do You Know What a Bergamot Is????

Bergamot / Citrus Bergamia

Bergamot essential oil is fresh and citrusy with spicy undertones.  Its name in Turkish translates to “King of the Pears,” which fits perfectly with the fruit’s pear-shaped peel that is cold pressed to create the oil.  Known as one of the most versatile oils in existence, Bergamot has the ability to adapt to the specific needs of the person using it.


Bergamot is known as a terrific natural deodorizer by both eliminating odors and adding its inherent sweet, ripe scent.  It can be diffused or applied topically to bring about a relaxing, calm environment where individuals can build confidence and uplift their mood.  Bergamot oil can also be taken internally to help regulate appetite.

Visit… and try a little Bergamot today!!!

Balsam Fir

imageBalsam Fir Essential Oil/Abies balsamea

Balsam Fir is derived from the Latin scientific name “Abies” – meaning “fir trees” – and “balsam” – meaning “balsam-like.”  Its uplifting fragrance is known for helping individuals overcome winter blues and encouraging feelings of satisfaction and delight. The best time to harvest Balsam Fir is during colder months, when the needles of this majestic tree contain the highest amount of rich oil.


Balsam Fir oil has been used for hundreds of years, both ritualistically and as an external treatment, to soothe occasional cuts, bruises and skin irritations.  It was also consumed internally to promote normal respiratory function.  Balsam Fir oil is used extensively to soothe sore areas by increasing circulation.  Its wintery aroma eases stress and tension naturally and effectively.  Balsam Fir grounds the body and empowers the mind by aligning the sacral and heart chakras, balancing emotions, and improving one’s mood.

I’m loving diffusing Balsam Fir…especially since I have an artificial tree!
