About the essential oils in this body wash recipe
Tamala essential oil
Tamala cinnamon Ct. Linalool
Tamala oil has a warm and soft aroma of cinnamon and caramel. It is unique and weird!
It is rich in two ingredients that help reduce the presence of germs: Linalool and 1,8 cineole. Linalool can also calm the nervous system. Tamala is one of my favorite oils for creating a relaxing atmosphere where I can focus on the project.
Cedar wood oil
I love using cedarwood oil to stimulate feelings of safety and confidence. Its soft and warm woody scent is protective and familiar.
Cedar wood is also rich in few ingredients that are seldom found in other oils – such as CedrolStudies have shown that it helps reduce certain types of germs and relax the nervous system.
Gandhi root essential oil
Like Tamala, the Ghandi Root is rich Linalool So we know it’s effective for feeling calm and focused!
Ghandi Root also includes terpinen-4-ol, An ingredient that limits germs and helps flush out microbes from our homes (and away from our skin). This oil has a bold, earthy, sensual scent that adds depth to this essential oil body wash recipe.
Sweet marjoram oil
Another rich oil Terpenine-4-OL!
I love the way Sweet Marjoram’s woody and green scent can help people de-stress. Sweet marjoram is a comforting oil and has a pleasant warming effect that can bring more awareness to the area where it is applied. In the recipe for body wash, this means that it helps us feel more connected to our physical bodies.
