Dream Land: A Seed Custom Blend
We'd like to thank you for joining us the past several weeks for our extended series on essential oils! New to this blog? Please feel free to start back at All About Essential Oils: Part 1 to begin your journey into Aromatherapy.
With over 1000 possible blend combinations, we do realize it might be a bit daunting as to which oils blend well with others. Truth be told, there really is no right or wrong answer. If you're feeling at a loss as you sit trying to select your blends, we have some ideas for blending!
With a Seed Custom Blend, you can select up to 3 essential oils per product.
*Do you want to be able to detect each individual scent? If so, be sure to only choose 1 or 2 essential oils.
*If you want to see the benefits of several oils, go ahead and choose 3. Please know that it may be harder to detect specific scents when you do this. That's okay! The blend you create will still be lovely.
*Learn about each of our essential oils on our website or right here on the (seed) blog. We have shared the many benefits of each oil every Tuesday and Thursday right here on this site. Please do check the posts out for a bit of inspiration.
Still unsure of your perfect blend? No worries! Let us help you! Stay tuned as we share our favorite blends with you.
The perfect recipe for some ZZZs!
Here is MY personal favorite! It's called Dream Land.
I will be honest. I have been exhausted lately. My mom has been in the hospital and We are in the process of moving. I am homeschooling my 12 year old with autism. My hubby has been flying back and forth every few weeks to Dallas for business for a special project. Then there is karate, running club, and other extracurriculars. Our senior pooch wakes up during the night to go to the bathroom.
I am just DOG TIRED. You'd think I'd hit the pillow and fall asleep. No such luck! I am one of those people whose head hits the pillow and all of a sudden my mind starts thinking about what lies ahead. I can't seem to turn that off.
There are some really special essential oils, though, that can help lull you to sleep. Introducing Dream Land.
No more counting sheep! Put on your coziest pajamas and spritz on Body Oil featuring our Dream Land recipe.

What are the benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil?
- Naturally refreshing, peppermint is one of the more uplifting essential oils.
- There is natural menthol in peppermint to provide skin with cooling sensation.
- Peppermint is noted for its ability to bring about clarity. In fact, there was a 2008 study in the International Journal of Neuroscience with some really impressing results concerning peppermint. The study showed that peppermint increases mental alertness and can enhance memory.
We've talked about common beauty buzzwords before. Terms like hypoallergenic, natural, and chemical-free are thrown around without having much meaning at all. In fact, there is no regulation of these terms and they can be used to make the product more enticing without any repercussions.
One of the most commonly used buzzwords in beauty and skin care is "Non-Comedogenic".
The medical definition of comedogenic is tending to clog pores especially by the formation of blackheads. Non-comedogenic, in skin care speak, implies that a product will not block pores, leading to acne breakouts. It's a term slapped on product bottles with wild abandon in the beauty industry.
Baths are steeped in tradition, from heated baths in Rome to enjoying cool baths in Scandinavia. Most of us associate baths as being either for young children or for those taking long, pampering bubble baths for those rare "take me away" experiences. There are many health benefits to enjoying a bath, though.
1. Taking a warm bath at night can help you get a better sleep.
Once you have stepped into your warm bath, you immediately feel calmer and more relaxed. Did you know that science tells us there is another reason baths help you feel a bit better, though? Do you know that cooler feeling you experience stepping out of the tub, leaving the warm water behind? When that colder air hits your skin, your brain releases something you may have heard of before: Melatonin. Melatonin is a hormone that helps to lull you off to Dream Land a bit more easily.
