Essential Oil Highlight: Agarwood (Aquilaria crassna)

Guest Post by Mary Elizabeth

As I saw the posting about agarwood oil, on the Essentials for Healing Facebook page, I began to read more about this intriguing oil. My findings kept me more intrigued and I just had to try it out. What I have found is that this ancient healing oil comes from Asia, and is prized for its many aspects of graceful healing.

You see, the oil of the Agarwood tree, which is used for many healing modalities, is created from the part of the tree that has first been damaged, infected, and the reaction is, that the tree, in order to protect itself, creates a resin. As the damaged living tree becomes susceptible to infections of molds, viruses and bacteria, from the damage, the tree produces a resin in order to heal itself, or to protect the rest of the tree from becoming sick. It is this part of the tree that has produced the resin that is used to produce the agarwood oil. It brings to mind, the doctrine of signatures that I’ve studied in herbalism.

Product Highlight: Reset & Rejuvenate Balm

Tranquil creek
Spring is here! But the weather can be challenging for us emotionally and physically. The weather gets warm and we are loving being outside in comfort. Then the weather turns cool again, and we find ourselves looking out our windows with longing, waiting for the next stretch of warm weather. Cabin fever and restlessness set in.

There are things happening inside our physical bodies during this time of year also. This is the time that our body really want to cleanse and get rid of heat, dampness and other things from the winter. Our sleep may be affected as we adjust to the time change leaving us feeling tired. Tempers may flare a bit more easily if we have not been tonifying during the winter. In essence, for some if us, life catches up with us.

I was talking to a client who is a mother with very active children. She was busy beyond belief and was exhausted. As she told me a brief outline of her life, I told her, “Let me make a remedy for you!" It took me around a month or two of studying the oils and even ordering some new ones until I came up with the formula. I call it Reset and Rejuvenate.

Essential Oil Highlight: Frankincense Sacra (Boswellia sacra)

Frankincense sacra resin
Frankincense sacra is a different species of the more common Frankincense carterii but has many of the same healing properties. Frankincense sacra is distilled from the Royal houjri resin and is very rare. This resin is crystalline with a touch of green and is so beautiful! The resin itself looks sacred. This oil has a higher vibration than the other species of Frankincense.

I really like a drop or two of either species of Frankincense in my skin care products, especially my facial care ones. It’s a very good oil for dry, aging skin. It can be calming for our nervous system as well as our lungs inviting us to breath more deeply. It's also good for restless leg as well as tension headaches. Frankincense in general, encourages emotional healing on all levels.
