This week I put together a very nice frankincense resin oil blend with the remaining Boswellia Carterii oleoresin oil I had leftover from making the salve. I added, at 5% strength, a blend of 3 unique types of frankincense essential oils: Boswellia papyrifera, Boswellia serrata, and Boswellia rivae .
I will have this new oil in stock at the Almonte Farmers’ Market this Saturday, June 16th. I hope to see you there, and as always at the market you will have an opportunity to try all of the products, and also take advantage of end-of-batch sales.
And of course all of our products are available online!
June 9th at the Almonte Farmers market I will have a new hydrosol. Yoga Mat Spray is a co-distillation of wild harvested Eastern White Pine (Pinus strobus )and our own organically grown Lemon Thyme (Thymus citriodorus). As with all my hydrosol blends there are no added anythings……no added essential oils, alcohol, or stabilizers. True hydrosols are a unique product obtained through the steam distillation of various leaves, flowers, barks, needles and roots and naturally contain all the water-soluble constituents of the plants including 0.05 – 0.2 per litre of essential oils (see “Hydrosols: The Next Aromatherapy” by Suzanne Catty). This makes them one of the safest forms of aromatherapy and herbal medicine.
This Yoga Mat Spray combination is antiseptic, antifungal, and antimicrobial – Spray on and let dry or spray on and wipe off. Depending on your own particular mat’s specific cleaning and maintenance instructions you could even add one drop of plain organic dish soap to give a little bit of extra wash.
Of course you may have figured out that the Yoga Mat Spray can be used many places, on many surfaces, and for many other uses!!
