After testing and reviewing the Eden’s Semilla Jojoba oil recently, I was also invited to try out and review their new collection of Essential Oils.
These are really high quality Therapeutic Grade essential oils and you can purchase them in sets of 4 or if you prefer, you can purchase them individually.
I had Set 1 which consisted of the following oils:
- Tea Tree
- Lemon Grass
Set 2 which consisted of the following oils:
- Pine Tree
I also had the following 4 individual oils:-
- Sweet Orange
The sets come packaged in a very sleek matte black box with an outer sleeve listing the essential oils enclosed in the set. It’s very elegant packaging.
The oils themselves are very high quality, as you would expect from Therapeutic Grade essential oils. They are definitely not thin watery oils and you can tell from the viscosity that these are premium oils. The scent of these oils is very strong but very natural smelling; they don’t smell artificial at all but then these are 100% natural oils.
Oil that is sourced from A Grade plants and extracted using the most up to date manufacturing processes of steam distillation or suppression; no additives or solvents just 100% pure goodness
Essential oils can be used in many different ways and have many different health benefits too. I’ve been using them for over 15 years or so and have always found them to be very beneficial.
The twelve essential oils that are in Eden’s Semilla collection contain 12 of the most popular plant extracts.
➭ Lavender (Diffused / Drops) – Helps to reduce stress and tension
➭ Cinnamon (Diffused) – An antibacterial air cleanser
➭ Bergamot (Diffusion) – As an insect repellent
➭ Pine – (Diffusion / Drop) Natural deodoriser for air and textiles
➭ Sandalwood (Drops) – For festive ceremonial occasions
➭ Sweet Orange (Diffused) – A natural sweet air freshener for the home
➭ Peppermint (Topical) – For soothing aches and pains
➭ Eucalyptus (Diffusion) – To aid respiration and calm coughs and colds
➭ Tea Tree (Diffused) – Helps cleanse air from mold and pathogens
➭ Frankincense (Topical) – General skin care and premature ageing
➭ Rosemary (Mixed) – All round use commonly mixed with other oils
➭ Lemon Grass (Topical) – Antibacterial and skin healing properties
As you can see, they all are very beneficial to your health. They are great if you want a natural alternative.
I used some of the Lavender and Rosemary to make some hand salve.
It’s a very easy and simple recipe to follow and you can use any essential oil of your preference in place of the lavender and rosemary.
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 Almond Oil
(if you don’t have both oils, then use 1/2 cup of either one)
1/2 cup coconut oil
1-3 tbsp Beeswax
(depending how firm you want your salve)
12 drops Lavender essential oil
9 drops Rosemary essential oil
Place a glass bowl or jar in a pan of boiling water. Now add the oils and beeswax into the bowl and heat over a low heat until blended.
Now add the essential oils as required.
Once cooled, pour mixture into your containers and allow to set.
I also used the Lavender to make some simple soap. Again, this is a very easy recipe to make and you can use any essential oil instead of Lavender.
500g aloe vera base
60g beeswax pellets
50 drops essential oil
10-50 drops of colouring
3-4 tsps of honey
flowers – as required – (I used some lavender that I had from the garden)
Place a glass bowl in a pan of boiling water. Place the beeswax pellets in the bowl and heat over a low heat until melted. Remove from heat and add the soap base, continue to heat over a low heat until completely melted to a liquid consistency.
Once melted allow to cool slightly and add essential oils. If adding colouring then add that at this point too.
Add 3-4 tsps of honey and flowers etc as required.
Pour mixture into your mould and leave for up to 24hrs to set, then wrap. If you want a clear soap then don’t add the wax or honey.
You could also use the essential oils to make yourself a very simple but effective homemade sugar scrub.
14oz granulated sugar
2oz coconut oil
10-50 drops essential oil.
Measure coconut oil into a jug and melt in the microwave for 30 sec at a time. Place sugar into a glass bowl and pour over the melted coconut oil and mix well.
Add in the essential oils.
You can also add in flowers that are beneficial to the skin.
If the mixture is too wet, gradually add more sugar until you have the desired texture.
Once made, place into air tight containers.
The Peppermint essential oil also made a really lovely lip balm and was also fantastic used in a hand salve too. It has probably the most natural and nicest scent of Peppermint I have ever come across in an essential oil. The lip balm is another easy to follow recipe and just like the other recipes above, you can replace the Peppermint essential oil with an alternative oil of your choice.
Beeswax Lip Balm
1oz beeswax pellets
4 fl oz olive oil
essential oil of your choice (just a few drops, you don’t need loads)
Place a glass bowl in a pan of boiling water. place the beeswax in the bowl and heat over a low heat until melted.
Add essential oil and stir well.
Pour mixture into a glass jug and allow to cool slightly. Now pour into your containers and allow to set.
There really are so many things you can do with essential oils. Pinterest have a lot of easy to follow recipes using essential oils. You can simply use the oils by placing a few drops in the bath too, to provide a lovely aroma and soothing environment.
I have also used several of these oils in my Aromatherapy Mist Diffuser. Just a few drops to the water container, either individually or 2 or 3 blended together and your room will smell amazing. The Eucalyptus and Peppermint I find exceptionally good for stuffy noses and making breathing more easy of a night. Add a few drops of the Sweet Orange to a spray bottle of water and you have an instant room fragrance.
Honestly, these Eden’s Semilla Essential Oils are exceptional and having used a fair few brands of oils over the years, I was seriously impressed by the quality of these and how fantastic they have been in all the ways I have used them.
They are also extremely good value for money and very affordable whether you purchase a set of 4 or you buy them individually, they are still such a great price.
I definitely recommend these oils if you use essential oils and what’s more they have:-
100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE – We are sure that you will love our essential oils collection but if for whatever reason you are not satisfied we offer a no questions asked money back guarantee. Total peace of mind.
Though I doubt you will be disappointed because the oils are so good.
