2. Carrot Seeds
Need a refreshment? Just mix carrot seeds in a spray bottle with water with grapefruit and lemon. Spray it on your face for extra moisture!
The essential oil of carrot seeds is distilled from the seeds of wild carrots – a different plant from those whose roots we eat.
The carrot seed oil helps you align your third eye with your root chakra, which helps you develop vision for the future.

The fragrance of sage brings you a fresh breeze and energy, it strengthens the vital centres of your body and cleanses you on all levels. Especially when it comes to habits and patterns that are not for your own good, the essential oil of sage can do you good.

Did you know that the name “sage” comes from the Latin “salvia”, which means to heal? Sage has long been used to accompany meditations, rituals and trance journeys, it helps us to surrender to the wisdom of our ancestors and to purify us from those beliefs and habits that no longer serve us.
4. Tea tree
Tea tree oil is one of the most popular essential oils of today. Due to its skin caring properties it is contained in many skin care and beauty products.
Pamper your skin with a steam facial. Put a few drops of invigorating Tea Tree Oil in a bowl of steaming water, place a towel over your head and inhale. Lean back and relax!
Did you know that tea trees grow all over the world? When people think of Tea Tree, most people think of Australia, but the tree also grows in Guatemala, France, China and the USA.
Many companies don’t write exactly which of the hundreds of varieties of tea tree has been diffused for its essential oil – this creates a lot of confusion and misunderstandings about its effects. Furthermore, tea tree oil is the most frequently adulterated essential oil, along with lavender, frankincense, rose and eucalyptus.
Peppermint is one of the most popular of all essential oils – with an incredible variety of applications. I love to use peppermint for more clarity in the head and an energizing freshness and coolness in the whole body.
Did you know that the name “peppermint” comes from the Latin “mente”, which means “thoughts”? In Greek mythology, there is the story of the nymph Mentha. Pluto desired Mentha, and so she was trampled by his wife Persephone. Pluto then transformed her into a wonderfully fragrant herb, peppermint!

Ointment with this moisturizing mixture from head to toe. Or create your refreshing, cleansing good mood peeling with a sugar or salt peeling in which you add a few drops of grapefruit.
Grapefruit is also very special for bad smells – smells that like to get stuck in your nose like rotten potatoes, mouldy food or toilet smells. Take a deep breath of grapefruit to wipe the bad smell from your nose, or make a grapefruit refreshment spray by mixing a few drops of grapefruit with some water in a spray bottle and spray the affected room air fresh again.
