Update : Jojoba Oil by Meraki Essentials is the refined version. It is best to use unrefined jojoba oil for best results.
Essential oils are everywhere these days. As I delved into natural skincare one year ago , I started learning more about essential oils and I was surprised by the number of ways a single essential oil can be used . From relieving a pain or a bug bite to solving every skin issue , essential oils offer solutions for every other problem. Introducing oils in my skincare routine is the best thing I did to my skin.
The more I started using essential oils , the more I realized that the purity of essential oils matter a lot. I always research a lot about the company I want to go with for essential oils . During my research I discovered Meraki Essentials – a brand that not only offers essential oils but also high quality carrier oils.
I really loved the way they have described Aromatherapy on their website www.merakiessentials.com and have clearly mentioned about the safety standards of using essential oils on a note they sent me with the product.
Some words from their website –
What are Essential Oils?
Plants produce fragrant essences in secretory cells, using nutrients from the soil, water, light and warmth from the sun. These cells are near the surface, located in flowers and leaves. These essences are defined as the life force energy, soul or spirit of the plant. While these essences are distilled they undergo certain chemical changes and become essential oils.
Some Tips for Safety
- Avoid during pregnancy.
- Use sparingly.
- Do not use undiluted.
- Always do patch test.
- Avoid contact with eyes and mouth.
- Store in a cool and dry place.
- Use within three months of opening the bottle.
How do Essential Oils work?
Essential oils work on our mind, body and soul and have proven to be extremely effective for millions of users across the world through centuries. They can be used through various means, the most popular ones being
Blend 2 – 3 drops of an essential oil with 6 – 8 ml of carrier oil and massage gently on skin and hair.
Add a few drops to bath water to reap benefits.
Add 2 – 3 drops of essential oil in water & diffuse to witness wonderful fragrances.
Before purchasing essential oils, avoid oils that say “fragrance oil” or “perfume oil” as these can be synthetic and don’t provide the desired health benefits. Instead, look for oils that say “pure essential oil” or “100% essential oil” for the highest quality. Meraki Essentials is an Indian brand that offers a wide range of 100% pure essential oils .
The company will send you a note that will mention the benefits and various ways you can use the essential oil or carrier oil that you have ordered along with some links to the site that provide information about the oils.
