Distillation for high quality Essential Oils

Written by


The process of extracting the essential oil from the plant material is what makes an oil different from another. This process of extraction is called distillation. One method of distillation is through the use of steam.

To distil using steam and oil you must first obtain a still. A still is the apparatus used to distil. The still contains a heat source at the bottom which is used to heat water inside a holding tank. Also inside the holding tank is a grate that you place the plant product that you wish to distill. The holding tank is covered and then connected by piping to a condenser. The condenser collects the steam coming from the holding tank and it cools it. Finally the cooled steam goes through a separator with separates the essential oil from the water vapor. The separator is one of the most important parts of the distiller.

Next you harvest your plant material. Make sure to choose organic plants because pesticides and herbicides may contaminate the oil. Essential oils are found in the leaves, flowers, stems and other parts of the plant. It is important to take care when harvesting these plant materials so as not to release the oils before the process of distilling. Remember that a little bit of oil comes from a lot of plants. You will need to harvest a lot of plant material in order to get enough oil to use. After you harvest, you will want to hang the plant up to dry. After the plant is dried, place it in the holding tank of your still and boil water in order to start the distillation process. When the oil is extracted, store it in a dark glass bottler or a stainless steel bottle. This will ensure a longer shelf life.

As you can see, distillation is a long and difficult process. Some manufacturers cut corners in the distillation process in order to cut costs. When corners are cut, the oil may become adulterated, impure. To cut costs they may: speed up the distillation process, dilute the oil with other oils or even chemicals, re-use already used plant material and use plant material that has been treated with pesticides. The best way to extract pure, un-adulterated oil is thr ough a low and slow distillation. To fully extract the oil the process may take several hours at a low temperature. Some manufacturers, to create more oil in less time may speed up the process of distillation and not get the same, pure product. Many essential oil companies may dilute their oils with a carrier oil or even with added chemicals. Although the oils may still smell the same, they are dangerous to use in a therapeutic capacity. Some companies may use the same plant material and re-di still it several times before discarding it. This makes for a weak essential oil. Only use essential oils that have been distilled from organic plant components. If they are not organic, they may contain traces of pesticides and are thus harmful to use.

Recently Madonna said: “I can’t live without Morocc an Argan Oil.” In a few short years argan oil has skyrocketed to one of the most prized oils in t he western world. Today if you walk down the aisle of any drugstore, dozens of products now prof ess to contain argan oil, and claims abound as to its miraculous properties. But is it really t hat good? I decided to investigate.

The first issue I found, is that there are a lot of imitations out there. A lot of watered down argan oil claiming to be real. The trick is to look at the ingredients, you want the pure stuff. The ingredients should simply be: ‘’100% Argania Spino sa Kernel Oil’’. Honestly, if there’s anything else listed, you just don’t want it.

Now when you get your hands on the pure stuff, that’s when the magic happens. Bes ides its traditional culinary uses, local Moroccan woman have also used argan oil cosmetically for hundreds of years. They have used it as the main ingredient for their traditional beauty recipes, to protect their hair, skin and nai ls in a dry desert environment. Traditionally the oil has also been used medicinally, as a topica l oil to treat various skin ailments. The properties of this oil are definitely restorative and healing. However despite what some well-known brands are saying, to date there have not been big scale expen sive clinical trials, to back up what Moroccan women have known for centuries. Most clinical trial s have been focused on the culinary use of Argan oil(which has also revealed some astounding anti-cancer health be nefits) but little has been actually proven on the topical use of pure Argan oil. However, what we can do is break it down by examining the composition of the oil, and looking at the rese arch done on each of these compounds individually, which are found within Argan oil, to find out more.

So, pure Argan oil contains: vitamin E, essential fatty acids, prostag landin, phytosterols, polyphenols, ferulic acid and a whole lot of other precious compounds that ar e probably too much of a mouthful for you right now. It does sound complicated, but remember that each of these compounds are powerful, have specific functions that help your bo dy and have been proven to do so many times over. Firstly, argan oil is high in tocopherols (vitami n E ). Vitamin E is well known as the elixir of youth– a powerful antioxidant that slows down aging. It is important in protecting your body from harsh environmental conditions, such as s un exposure and pollution. It has been proven to significantly help in the reduction of sc arring from wounds and the appearance of stretch marks.

Argan Oil is 80% unsaturated essential fatty acids . The most abundant of which are Omega 9 (Oleic acid) and Omega 6 (Linoleic acid). T opically applying these can have a number of hugely positive effects on the skin. Fatty acids improve moisture retention and keep the skin elastic and firm. It has been proven that they are particularly healing to extreme dry skin problems like eczema.

Fatty Acids also play an extremely important role i n the formation of prostaglandin in our body, a natural anti-inflammatory that reduces pain, swelling and inflammation, while stimulating blood circulation. That’s why a massage with argan oil can be so effective for stiff arthritic joints and aching muscles.

Argan oil naturally contains phytosterols , which have anti-aging benefits because they encourage new collagen production in our body that is lost from sun exposure and aging. One of the contributing factors to aging is the breakdo wn and loss of collagen (the main component in connective skin tissue). As the body ages, it is not able to produce collagen as it once did. Though many skin care products and brands boast abo ut the fact that they contain collagen, the fact is, collagen is too large to be assimilate d directly through the skin. Taking a collagen pill is not the answer either, because your body will be unable to use it to build your collagen level. The most effective way (besides actually injecting collagen into your skin which is very painful and expensive) is to use phytosterols to boost your own body’s collagen production.

Argan oil is also rich in ferulic acid , a super antioxidant that is found in the cell walls of plants. Antioxidants prevent skin damage caused by free radicals and assist in skin repair and rejuvenation. And get this! Incredibly, this super antioxidant was found in a recent study to increase its activity when exposed to UV rays. Let’s get this right that actually means that it increases its activity the stronger the sun’s rays get! So, not only can it help protect your skin from future damage, but it will also help heal damage from the past.

My investigation continues but the evidence I already uncovered supports Madonna’s statement and a whole lot of other celebrities shou ting out the benefits of this rare plant oil. In fact Argan oil has now found its place known as ‘’liquid gold’’ within Hollywood's beauty industry. Get in on the secret and try the pure stuff on your skin, hair an d nails today! I promise, you won’t be disappointed

Aboriginal Uses for Tea Tree

Written by

Australian aboriginals were familiar with the terra in that they lived on. They understood that many plants and trees in their area, could be used for m any different purposes.

The tea tree is a large tree native to Australia. Native aboriginals identified many different species of the tea tree along with their medicinal properties. Properties absorbed int o the body through infusion, steaming and ointments. Each have their own therapeutic benefits enhancing the benefits of the plant extract.

To create an infusion, leaves and bark from the tea tree were gathered and crushed. Then placed in water to soak for several days. The longer it soake d, the more potent the infusion became. The infusion was then drunk or also used as bath water. This remedy was helpful in alleviating headaches, coughs, colds and fever. Infusions were also poured onto open wounds in order to cleanse them.

Steam was also an effective way that the aborigines used tea tree. The branches and leaves were crushed up and placed into boiling water. The patient would then inhale the rising steam and feel relief from headaches and congestion. Another method for administering steam was by placing the tea tree branches and leaves into a fire. The p atient would then squat over the fire while inhaling the steam which arose.

Ointments were also an effective way to help heal. The aborigines would crush up tea tree leaves and mix them with animal fat. This ointment would t hen be rubbed on the body to alleviate congestion or a fever.

Other ways that tea tree was administered was by ma king a bark or leaf tea. This consisted of boiling the leaves or bark in hot water. The leaves could then be crushed and the scent of the leaves could be directly inhaled. The crushed leaves could then be applied directly onto open wounds.

The bark of the tea tree is similar to paper which can be ripped, torn and folded easily making it useful as a bandage. The aboriginal people also use d tea tree bark in many non - medicinal uses. It was used to wrap food in to cook (similar to alumin ium foil used today), to fix holes in canoes, woven into sleeping mats and also used to produce s imple raincoats.

The power of the tea tree has been utilized for centuries by aboriginals. Tod ay, we have the ability to extract the oil from thi s amazing Melaleuca tree and use its medicinal powers whenever and wherever we may need it for therapeutic value. Either as a natural cleansing ag ent or for soothing of bites. It is also ideal to relieve aching muscles.

Enjoy the experience of tea tree teaTree-Bottle.jpg

Skin Care

Written by

Guest Article - Thank you Nick Stokes of Uptown Spa

To most people, skin is purely esthetic organ, meant to show us in a good light. However, many individuals disregard the fact that skin is actually quite important part of human body. As our outer layer, it represents the first line of defense against all foreign agents. Besides that, it has some other purposes such as sense of touch and it helps us establish what is cold and hot thus warning us of imminent danger. When we are exposed to the sun, it absorbs sunrays transforming them into vitamin D. Also, it is important for stopping water inflow out of our body. Given all of its functions, it is necessary for us to perceive skin not only as something which makes us look good, but also as an organ which helps our body with numerous issues.

First thing which you need to know about your skin is that water and food are its best friends. By consuming enough water during the day, you make sure that your skin is fresh and healthy. Good nutrition is also very important for it. Like any other part of our body, it is important for us to consume different types of food so we can introduce various minerals and vitamins which can help us protect our skin and keep it healthy. Anyway, even if you don’t have enough of certain vitamin of mineral, you will be able to tell quite easily. When you don’t have enough water, or if your skin is not moisturized enough, you will experience itchy feeling (happens due to the dryness). Problems with minerals and vitamins can be noticed through discoloration, and often, red patches. It is always recommended to use cosmetic products which are made for your skin type. Also, any additional treatment in a spa or a beauty salon won’t hurt you. You can always try out one of the best beauty salons in Toronto, Uptown Spa in North York.

Besides internal factors, there are also some external elements which can negatively impact us. Our skin is meant to protect us from microbes, heat and cold. In that regard, as soon as we are exposed to a hostile environment, your skin will register it, and it will be shown by surface changes. For example, you can develop blisters. Although our body can take certain amount of punishment, try not to overdo it. Some of the advices which can help you is to carry lip balm during cold weather, not to overexpose yourself during sunny day, don’t shower with a really hot water and try to wash away all cosmetic products after you showered or after you washed your hair.

Some of the issues you may develop are not only due to a harsh environment or malnutrition. There are certain issues such as acne which can persist for almost entire life. In those cases, like in a case of any other medical condition, it is necessary to contact your doctor. Have in mind that you need to be persistent with skin because most of the treatments require a longer period of time until they bear fruit.

One of the best ways to experience the power of essential oils is to diffuse the oil into the air. There are several benefits to diffusing essential oils.

Depending on the type of oil you diffuse, you can experience:

·         Cleaner and purer air

·         An elated mood

·         Increased concentration and focus

·         Reduced stress

·         An immunity boost

There are four main types of diffusers on the market today. While they range in price and function, they all have the power to take your essential oil of choice and disperse it throughout your home. These four types of diffusers are: ultrasonic, nebulizing, heat and evaporative. We will explore each kind of diffuser so that you can make an informed decision when looking to purchase a diffuser to use in your home.

With the ultrasonic diffuser, you add your essential oil and water into the diffuser. Through the use of ultrasonic vibrations, the oil is broken down into microscopic particles which are then dispersed, with the water in the form of a mist. Not only does this diffuser spread your essential oil throughout the room, the mist creates a nice humidifier as well. The downfall to this kind of diffuser is that it only diffuses a small amount of oil and thus you will have to run the diffuser for longer in order to fully feel the effects of the diffused oil.

Unlike the ultrasonic diffuser, the nebulizing diffuser diffuses the oil without the use of water. This kind of diffuser quickly saturates the air around it and you only need to run it for about 15 minutes per hour. This the most therapeutic style of diffuser.

An evaporative diffuser contains a pad on which you put several drops of your essential oil. There is a fan that then blows over top of the oil causing it to evaporate into the room. This type of diffusion is less therapeutic because by evaporating the oil, you are separating the components of the oil. By doing this method of diffusing, you are causing the oil to be less volatile than it is in its whole form.

A heat diffuser uses heat to cause the oil to evaporate. This type of diffuser is not as therapeutic as the ultrasonic or nebulizing diffuser for the same reason as the evaporative diffuser. If you do choose to purchase this kind of diffuser, make sure to choose a low-heat diffuser instead of a high-heat diffuser as high heat can actually alter the chemical components of the oil. This type of diffuser is silent and impressively economical.

The use of a good diffuser will help you feel the benefits of your essential oils without physically applying the oil. You will be able to purify the air in your home and help protect your family from the effects of airborne diseases.



 For a Happier and Healthier Life.

The purpose of yoga is to strengthen the body and spine. Through yoga, one can create a union between the body, mind and spirit.

An onlooker may not understand this purpose and may see yoga solely as an exercise in flexibility. While yoga does increase flexibility, being extremely flexible is not essential in order to practice yoga. Through the use of a yoga strap one can feel successful in performing yoga poses. The yoga strap helps those that don’t have a wide flexibility to not push themselves too hard and accidentally injure themselves by tearing a ligament or pulling a muscle. For those that have experience in performing yoga, the yoga strap will still help to maintain proper spinal alignment and to achieve optimal benefits of the different yoga poses.

Yoga straps are a heavy duty, durable fabric strap. They have an anti-cinch buckle that can be adjusted for different lengths. The texture of the yoga strap is smooth so as not to give any friction burns. The yoga strap is similar in style to a canvas belt and are useful for beginning and advanced practitioners of yoga.

Essentially what the yoga strap does is it artificially lengthens the arms and legs. It helps you to stretch further and helps when you are trying to work difficult areas including the back and the shoulders. Here are some simple ways to use of the yoga strap:


1.    Stand up straight and wrap the yoga strap around your toes. Bend forward and push your upper body downwards towards your toes. This helps you to achieve a stretch that you would normally feel when you are touching your toes.

2.    Sit down on the floor and place your legs straight out in front of you. Loop the yoga strap around your feet and pull on it to help you bend further in an attempt to touch your toes.

3.    Hold the strap in both your hands and put your arms behind your back. Pull your shoulders back for a good shoulder stretch.


The yoga strap not only helps you achieve these stretching poses but it also helps you to keep your spine straight which is very important when practicing yoga. By keeping your spine straight, you will avoid injury that may incur while performing various yoga poses and stretches.

The yoga strap is also helpful when you are trying to maintain balance. One good balance pose that you can use the strap with is the Tree Pose. Wrap the strap around your waist and then insert your foot into the end of the strap to help you maintain better balance.

While you may have seen a yoga strap before, you may have never used one. This piece of the equipment is very beneficial and under-utilized by those practicing yoga. Try some poses with the yoga strap support; you may be surprised at what you can accomplish.

Yoga as a traveling Companion

Written by

To travel and see different cultures is not only exciting but it is also one of the most eye-opening things that one can do.

Unfortunately travel can be exhausting and at times frustrating. One way that you can enjoy your travel more is by incorporating yoga into your travel routine and schedule.

Whether you are traveling by car or by airplane, you may experience some stress and tension in your neck, shoulders, hips, and back. By doing some yoga asanas before, during and after your travel, you can avoid being physically uncomfortable from the journey. The best asanas to perform are ones that open up the low-back and the hips. Some of these poses are the cat-cow pose, the wide legged, standing forward bend and bridge pose. If you aren’t familiar with these poses, look for complete instructions and tutorials online. There are also several relaxing stretches that you can do while sitting during travel. Some of these are: foot flexes, neck rolls, and shoulder shrugs. These simple moves will help to relieve the tension that comes with travel.

Traveling also brings many uncertainties. You may have flight delays, the weather may be uncooperative for your planned activities, and there may be a high level of noise which disrupts your sleep and relaxation etc. There are many circumstances that may aggravate and frustrate you. One way to avoid this aggravation is to practice and live by yoga philosophies. Two valuable yoga philosophies are: Ishrara Pranidhana which is the practice of surrender and Samtosha, which is contentment. Together these philosophies stress that one must have joy in the journey in whatever unexpected form it may take. If your flight is delayed, find opportunities to learn, discover and enjoy the extra time you’re given in the location you are at.

One way to find joy in the journey’s you make is by opening up opportunities to communicate and learn from local people and customs. Don’t have a specific itinerary that requires you to move quickly from one activity to the next. Take the time to enjoy different situations and let the moments guide your travel. You can learn a lot from the people that you meet during travel and these people can have a positive impact on your life as long as you take the time to connect with them.

During your travels, make sure that you set aside daily quiet time in order to meditate and to practice yoga, and just get time to yourself. Bring along your travel yoga mat, one specifically designed to be packed into small suitcases. A travel mat is light weight and can be folded as well as rolled. Create a daily routine to go through your yoga routine and connect with your inner self in order to feel rejuvenated and to have a clear head. With a clear head you can enjoy and contemplate deeply on the experiences you have. This will impact your life in a big way.

If you really wish to get away from your daily, stressful life, make sure to leave behind stressful things, this can be taken metaphorically or literally. When you leave your normal daily life behind, do not bring any previous stressful scenarios with you on your break.

While away, plan on creating a calming environment in your hotel room. This will create a sanctuary to help you rest. You can do this by bringing soothing music or sounds; this is especially effective if you are in a location that has more noise than you are used to. You may wish to bring a soothing candle or essential oils that you can diffuse in your room to comfort you.

Relaxing and finding joy in your journey, even if it is unexpected, may turn your ordinary trip into a spiritual pilgrimage that will change the way you look at the world, at different cultures and at people in general. You can not only be led on a spiritual journey through your travels but you can also experience greater mental clarity and complete relaxation as you explore the world.


Pranayama is a yoga practice where the focus is on breathing. The word pranayama can be broken into two parts and its definition gives us a clear idea what it means: Prana- life force or energy of the universe, Yama- control.

Prana is the creator, sustainer, and destroyer of life. By practicing certain breathing techniques, one can access the benefits of prana. Yama suggests control over this life force which control is possible through deep breathing.

Although pranayama is a form of yoga, it is usually practiced in conjunction with other forms of yoga. For instance, the asanas (yoga pose) focuses on your breathing and respiratory systems. By focusing on your breath you can tell whether you are straining too much during certain yoga poses. By focusing on your breathing technique, you can help center not only your body, but your mind during your yoga practice.

There are many different forms of pranayama. A couple of these breathing techniques are: bhastrika pranayama, udgeeth pranayama, bhaya pranayama and anulom vilom pranayama. These are all easy breathing techniques that you can practice at home during your regular yoga session or you can practice it in the car, the office or wherever you are in the world.

Bhastrika pranayama is when you breathe in slowly through the nostrils. To master  your relaxation breathing, focus on what happens to your body while you breathe in. For instance, you will feel your diaphragm move, your lungs fill with air, and your collar bone move up and down. Once you have taken in sufficient breath, exhale it out quickly. Repeat this for 10-15 minutes.




  • Udgeeth pranayama is when you breathe just like in Bhastrika pranayama, but as you exhale you say a mantra or a single, elongated word like “ohm”. This mantra will help you focus your mind on your breathing.

    There are several benefits to practicing these deep breathing techniques, one benefit is that it helps to relieve stress. As you breath out you can visualize your stress leaving your body. If you have physical pain, you can envision your pain leaving your body in the same way. When you practice deep breathing you are also helping to improve your day to day efficiency of breathing. This helps expel air pollutants and helps to expand the operation of your lungs. Also with a regular deep breathing practice, you are taking more oxygen into your body, oxygen helps your blood get rid of toxins and helps improve circulation. Regular deep breathing will help you to fight off sickness and strengthen your immune system.

    Bhaya pranayama is very similar to Bhastrika pranayama, but with a bigger focus on having a deeper exhale. You do this by exhaling and at the same time bringing your chin down to your chest to physically press the air out of your stomach.

    Anulom Vilom pranayama is when you breathe by alternating where you breathe comes in and out. To do this, place your finger on the side of your right nostril to block the air from coming in. Inhale through your nose. Switch your finger to block your left nostril and breathe out through the open nostril.

    5 uses of Pepermint

    Written by

    Peppermint essential oil is a must have for your medicine cabinet. It is versatile and can help to treat a variety of symptoms and is packed full of healthy benefits.

    If you look in your medicine cabinet right now, you can probably see a variety of products that contain peppermint. The difference between your drug store products and essential oil is that the drug store products contain chemicals and fillers where peppermint oil does not. Peppermint oil is all natural and will work with your body to make you feel good. Below we will explore the five most common uses of peppermint oil.

    Stomach pain, including: indigestion, nausea, and gas. Peppermint oil contains a natural, organic compound called menthol. The menthol in peppermint is what will help alleviate your stomach discomfort. To apply the oil, place 3-4 drops on your abdomen and rub until the oil is absorbed into your skin. You can also place a few drops on your wrists and inhale deeply.

     Another remedy for stomach pain is a peppermint tea. Boil a cup of water and then add a drop of peppermint oil (add more if you want it stronger). The oil in your tea will separate from the water naturally but the flavor will be dispersed.

    Expectorant for coughs, colds, asthma, or bronchitis. The menthol contained in the peppermint helps to relieve these respiratory symptoms. To help feel relief, massage a couple drops of oil straight onto your chest. You can also create a peppermint steam by placing a couple drops of oil in a pot of boiling water, place your face close to the water and cover your head with a towel. Breathe in the moisture for thirty seconds and repeat if desired.

    Improves concentration, perks you up. Peppermint oil helps if you are looking to replace caffeine. During the day if you are unable to concentrate or you are feeling tired; rub some peppermint oil on your neck and shoulders, or directly under your nose. You will get a burst of energy to help you through the day.

    Headache and stress relief.Massage a drop of peppermint oil onto your neck and temples. This will help alleviate your headache, or help you calm down when feeling stressed. You can also add a couple of drops to a hot bath and breathe in deeply as you soak in the water.

    Tooth and muscle pain.If you have a painful toothache or have a baby that is teething, applying peppermint oil can relieve some, if not all of that pain. Place a drop of oil directly on the pain or rub over the gums of your baby’s mouth. Repeat as many times as necessary. Peppermint oil is an anti-inflammatory, meaning that if your muscles are sore or inflamed, the oil will ease, relax, and make them feel better. If you are sore from exercise or from working in the yard, peppermint oil can help to cool some off that soreness.


    As you can see, you can use this one oil to replace not just one item in your medicine cabinet but several products that you regularly buy chemical jammed, over the counter.

    My husband actually bought this excellent lavender oil for me. I'm a certified massage therapist and I use a LOT of essential oils in my practice. Many over the years have been pretty bad quality but WellnesScent, to my happy surprise, is excellent and very potent.
