Welcome to my site!

Hi I am Eva, this is a place to explore aromatherapy, natural beauty and other juicy finds curated from the web, helping you find nourishment and strength with a touch of sparkle thrown in.

I am passionate and dedicated to using holistic medicines, natural beauty products. Since a tiny girl in my hippy childhood, spending time in the Welsh hills and Greek islands, I was exposed to herbal remedies, natural & organic foods, homeopathy, osteopathy, meditation and yoga asana. This was long before they were fashionable and had glossy makeovers and those that followed this path were seen as quirky and even a little odd. Over the years my interest and use of these disciplines & traditions has changed and grown reflecting my own life’s needs.

ESSENTIAL OIL OF THE MONTH

April

Hyacinth

(Hyacinthus Orientalis)


Emotional burnout, grief, loss and initiation rites

This oil is not used a great deal in aromatherapy, it is actually obtained through solvent extraction, so not technically an essential oil, but an absolute. Best used with professional guidance as it has the ability to stir up some deep emotions. It has been used to help support addictions, burnout, depression, fatigue, apathy and stress related conditions. It should be blended with a grounding oil, like sandalwood, vetiver, or patchouli to temper its hypnotic energy. It also blends well with violet, galbanum, ylang ylang, jasmine or orange. The plant was introduced to Europe and is native to parts of Asia, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and Israel. It flowers in early spring and its highly fragrant flowers attract insects for pollination. It is often used as a fragrance in the perfumery industry.
