Birds a-chirpin’, sun’s a-shinin’, and whiffs a-waftin’ from our garden: spring is so naturally beautiful. And along with the warmer weather, we can also expect the onslaught of spring bath and body products full of synthetic fragrances. Alas, there are no “Cucumber Melon” or “Fresh Linen” essential oils.
Why fake it when you can grow the real thing? Nature gives us plenty to work with in the way of awesome botanical aromas…understatement of the season. We’re passionate about using pure plant essences for the unique whiffs and health benefits each one provides.
Aromatherapy nerds: here are some of our favorite essential oils for spring. And while you’re perusing and diffusing, why not try a fresh new carrier oil? We love Rosehip, Sweet Almond, Jojoba, and Grapeseed oils for lovely light spring detoxing.
Zesty/fruity: Bergamot, Sweet Orange, Lemon, Lemongrass, Grapefruit
Spicy/warm: Cardamom, Ginger, Coriander
Floral/dreamy: Lavender, Neroli, Geranium, Rose Otto, Marjoram, Ylang Ylang, Chamomile
Herbal/green: Sweet Basil, Juniper, Spearmint, Rosemary, Clary Sage, Thyme
And of course, our top Zum picks for spring cleaning…have you noticed we’re a little nutty about Lavender? I mean, we always are, but especially this time of year. Ahhhhhh.
