Eden’s Semilla Essential Oils Review

Eden’s Semilla Essential Oils Review

September 9, 2016 7 Comments

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.

20160908_172002_lls 20160908_172457_llsI had Set 1 which consisted of the following oils:

  • Tea Tree
  • Lemon Grass
  • Rosemary
  • Frankincense

20160908_172612_llsSet 2 which consisted of the following oils:

  • Pine Tree
  • Lavender
  • Bergamot
  • Cinnamon

20160908_172543_lls

I also had the following 4 individual oils:-

  • Peppermint
  • Eucalyptus
  • Sandalwood
  • Sweet Orange

20160908_172110_lls

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.sleeve

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.

20160908_174058_lls

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.

Hand Salve
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)

Optional

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.

20160908_173857_lls20160908_173336_lls

Handmade Soap

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.

20160908_173148_lls 20160908_173245_lls

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.


20160908_173612_lls

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.


Overall Thoughts

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.

You can purchase these sets via their Amazon Store.

If you purchase 2 of the sets together you get 10% off (NOT including the 10ml single bottles) and if you purchase 3 of the sets you get 15% off (NOT including the 10ml single bottles)

  • Finally got round to trying these @cosrx pimple patches. ⠀
⠀
I don't get too many spots, maybe the odd hormonal one every now and then. However, I do have some whiteheads that are under the skin - you can't see them till you pull the skin tighter but I know they are there as I can feel them under the skin.⠀
⠀
I had tried several times to extract them but I didn't want to damage my skin and they were proving very stubborn.⠀
⠀
So, I used a sterilised needle, to pierce a small hole in them, making sure to go just deep enough to hit the whitehead. ⠀
⠀
Whacked on one of these pimple patches & voila! Over the next 24-48hrs they pulled out all the contents and the whiteheads were gone. ⠀
⠀
It's much less trauma to the skin to use these patches rather than squeezing and picking and running the risk of scarring or PIH.⠀
⠀
If you've not tried these, then I really recommend giving them a try. I am pretty sure you won't be disappointed. ⠀

  • So when I purchased the Honey Potion from @Beautylish about 3 months ago, I also purchased these bad boys from @goodmolecules too! 😀⠀
⠀
I haven't cracked them open yet though as I already have a few serums/oils in rotation at the moment. So, I don't want to waste products by opening these yet.⠀
⠀
This is the Super Seven set & cost me $56!!! For seven products - can you believe that!? 😲⠀
⠀
These are the seven products you get:⠀
⠀
💠Hyaluronic Acid Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠Niacinamide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠Overnight Exfoliating Treatment Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠 Squalane Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀
💠 Super Peptide Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
💠 Ultra-Hydrating Facial Oil Size: 13 ml / 0.44 oz⠀
💠 Wake Up Eye Serum Size: 30 ml / 1 oz⠀
⠀
I'm really looking forward to using them - trust me it's killing me not to open them already!⠀
⠀
Since I purchased these they have actually brought out four more products, which I will aim to purchase at some point in the future. Well, depending on how I get on with these, that is. ⠀
⠀
Have you tried anything from @GoodMolecules yet?⠀

  • Happy Friday everyone!! ⠀
⠀
I know a lot of people have to have their coffee first thing before they get going for the day. ⠀
⠀
Me? Well, this is exactly how I like my coffee in the morning- in my face scrub! 😛⠀
⠀
Truly love this @upcirclebeauty Face Scrub. (Citrus Blend) ⠀
⠀
Smells amazing, leaves my face clean, soft, moisturised and gently exfoliated - not tight and dry like some products can. 😍⠀
⠀
Such a great way to recycle the coffee grounds too. 😀⠀
⠀
What's your favourite exfoliator to use? ⠀

  • I'll admit I am a sucker for a good face mask. Even more so if it's a honey one. 🍯 😍⠀
⠀
This @farmacybeauty Honey Potion had been on my wishlist since I first came across it on Instagram ages ago. All I can say is it did not disappoint. Actually it did, in fact, exceed my expectations! ⠀
⠀
I love watching the honey gooey texture change from a golden hue to creamy white when you start to massage it into your skin as it gets warm. ⠀
⠀
After 10-15 mins it's ready to rinse off. Personally, I prefer to gently remove with a damp cloth, then pat dry.⠀
⠀
My face always feels so very soft afterwards. It's suitable for all skin types but especially those that are dry, dehydrated and dull, which is pretty much my skin all over. I do feel like my skin looks more radiant as well as feeling nice and hydrated after using Honey Potion. ⠀
⠀
I'd like to also mention the packaging, which is just beautiful - and I adore that the spatula/lid is magnetic too! 😊⠀
⠀
This was a bit of a luxe purchase for me as I ordered it from Beautylish, along with some other skincare goodies that I wanted to try. I loved that I could split the total into 3 payments with them too. 🙂⠀
⠀
Have you tried Honey Potion or anything else from @farmacybeauty?⠀
