I use the lemongrass oil in another way to treat my acne and to get clear skin. I add 2-3 drops of the oil to my regular oil (Apricot oil) and apply all over my face and go to bed. After regular use for one week, I have seen my acne reducing and in the morning I see a clear and fresh skin. It reduces the redness of acne too.

4. Encourage Hair Growth:

The another way I use Lemongrass oil by adding 3-4 drops of the oil to coconut oil (you can use any carrier oil of your choice) and apply on scalp and hair 2 hours before shampoo. It moisturizes and strengthens the hair, making your hair healthy and bouncy. It has reduced my dandruff too.

Use essential oils always mixing with a carrier oil or plain water. 2-4 drops are enough for skin or hair. It is better to use only 2 drops for the face. Before using any essential oil go for a patch test. The pregnant women and moms who breastfeed your baby must consult your physician before using any.

It has treated acne, giving a youthful glow and radiance that stays long. I have used the mask thrice till the date. I don’t have any age spots or any signs of aging, so can’t say about that much.



4. Added To Coconut Oil:

As it fights dandruff and itching of scalp, I use it with coconut oil and apply on the scalp and hair, leave it at least 2 hours and wash off with regular shampoo. I always use mild, herbal and alcohol-free shampoo. I use the mixture on my face too and massage for one minute and wash off. The result is dandruff free scalp and my itchy scalp is much relieved. The face is clear and glowing.





I also add 10 drops in a full bucket of water to clean my floor. The whole room is filled with its smell and gives me a relaxing and calming feeling in the morning. I can start my day with full energy.

Top 6 Benefits Of Rose Essential Oil.

For centuries, roses are the second name of love and romance. If a person whom you love the most, be your best friend or the special one in your life, offers you a rose (specifically the red rose) it immediately boosts up your mood, introduce a happy feeling or ignites your emotions. So does the Rose Essential Oil. Rose essential oil is now widely used as the mood elevator. If it is introduced in the treatment of a person suffering from depression, the symptoms of depression can be relieved rapidly. rose essential oil has great benefits on our skin too. It can brighten the skin, making it healthy and radiant, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, lighten the tan and scars, treats acne, and promotes hair growth also.






Rose essential oil is extracted from the petals of the rose. as rose petals are not very high in oil content, it takes several thousands of rose petals to produce just one ounce of rose oil. This is  the reason why rose essential oil tends to be expensive. Though, its high price does not prevent it from being one of the most popular of essential oils.






Rose Essential Oil can be used in different ways. Either you can use it by mixing with water or any carrier oil. You can mix it with your regular cream or moisturizer. Rose oil can be used in diffusers also.




The calming aroma of rose oil is a mood enhancer, it calms and soothes the nerves and relieves the symptoms of depressions, heals fatigue, stress and helps to get rid of tension. Mix 4/5 drops of rose oil to your bath or use in a diffuser to boost your mood and the positivity level and to create an uplifting atmosphere of joy and happiness.



For its antiseptic qualities, rose oil can be used to treat the wound. Topically applying on the affected area, it can heal the wound and also protect the wound to become septic and to develop further infections.



Rose oil can ease spasm in our respiratory system or in intestine too. It can also help to cure convulsions, muscle cramps or muscle pulls.



Due to its astringent properties, Rose oil tones and lightens the skin. If you are suffering from acne, apply 2/3 drops of rose oil on your skin by mixing with any carrier oil ( coconut oil will be the most effective) or with your daily moisturiser. As it can retain the moisture into skin, it is beneficial for dry skin too.







Rose essential oil can strengthen the roots of the hair to promote hair growth. Mix rose oil with coconut oil or any of your regular oil and apply on the scalp, leave overnight and shampoo with a mild herbal oil next morning. It will leave your hair soft and shiny. Rose essential oil can strengthen the roots of the hair and help prevent hair loss.










Rose oil regulates the women hormones to offer relief to premenstrual, menstrual and menopausal issues. And it also can be good for arousing libido. Mix rose oil with jasmine or ylang-ylang essential oils and some carrier oils and diffuse them throughout the home or bedroom or rub the mixture on your back.

Top 7 Lavender Oil Benefits

The essential oils are rapidly becoming popular nowadays, because of their healing properties. They heal both physically and mentally without leaving any side effect. Essential oils are actually not oils at all as they lack fatty acids, rather they are highly concentrated plant components, distilled from different parts of a plant like flowers, leaves, wood, bark, roots, seeds and all. They are very potent because of the concentration of phytochemicals. This is the reason why before using an essential oil directly on your skin should go for a patch test.

Of all these essential oils, Lavender Oil has become most famous and are widely used in the skin care, hair care, bath and body care products, perfumes, household cleaners and laundry detergents. It has a scent that is a wonderful blend of fresh, floral, clean and calm. Image courtesy : GoogleThe lavender oil is extracted from the flower of the lavender plant which is native to northern Africa and now it grows throughout southern Europe, the United States and Australia. It has a strong historical background. The Egyptians used lavender oil for mummification as well as perfumes. In ancient Greece, Rome, medieval and renaissance Europe, it was used in the bath or as deodorants, disinfectant. The word lavender has come from ‘lavare‘ which means ‘to wash‘. Actually, Lavender Oil is known for its detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-depressant, anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties.Lavender oil offers both physical and mental relief from the problems like a migraine, insomnia, burns, insect bites, various skin problems, infections, stress and nervous tension. Another most consistently reported benefit of lavender oil is that it can provide respiratory relief in particular coughs, colds, influenza etc. Even it may also ease breathing problems. It can refresh your tired mind, providing the relief from anxiety and stress.


Now I am going to share with you top 7 benefits of lavender oil:

1. Reduces stress and anxiety:

Add 3-4 drops of lavender oil to your bath water and take a bath. You will feel relaxed, relieved from stress, anxiety, fatigue and tired mind.


2. Heals burns and cuts:

Add 1/2 drops of lavender oil to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil (I generally use grapeseed oil/almond oil) or fresh water and apply it on the affected area. It will calm and cool the burns or cuts and give you a sudden relief. It also heals chapped skin. If you add 1/2 drops of lavender oil to your regular lip balm and apply on lips, your lips will get soft and hydrated. Again, add it to your regular hand/slash foot cream. The rough skin of your hands and feet will be softer and smoother and the cracked heels will be healed too.


3. Improves sleep:

You can also defuse lavender oil to get rid of insomnia. Add 4-5 drops of lavender oil to a burner filled with water and keep it on a diffuser. Place the diffuser in your bedroom. It will calm your nerves, providing deep sleep at night.


4. Alleviates headaches:

To reduce headaches, mix 2 drops of lavender oil with any carrier oil, rub it into the temples, forehead and back of your neck. You will get immediate relief from a headache.


5. Improves eczema and acne:

Lavender oil controls oil production to treat acne and improve complexion. Add 2/3 drops of lavender oil to your cleanser or moisturizer to help clear up acne, acne scars. To heal itching, dryness, eczema or other skin irritations add lavender oil to carrier oil and apply the mixture on the affected areas.


6. Soothes sunburn:

Add 2/3 drops of lavender oil to any carrier oil or to water, gently apply on the sunburnt areas and get immediate relief. Regular use of this mixture will diminish suntans, blemishes, giving a radiant and glowing skin.


7. Effective for hair fall:

If you regularly massage your scalp with 2/3 drops of lavender oil, mixing with coconut oil or any other regular hair oil, it will help to regrow hair. Massage your scalp with the oil mixture with very soft hand and leave it overnight. But don’t comb your hair. Next morning shampoo your hair with a good herbal shampoo. Do it minimum twice a week. Don’t think that you will get an immediate result, may it take 1/2 months to show the results.


So, friends do you use lavender oil ? If that so please share with me more tips for using the magical oil. And if you like the article, you can visit for more such posts.

Revive Your Mind And Spirit With The Nature’s Co Geranium and Palmarosa Harmony Essential oil

 Essential oils have profound effects on our body, mind and emotions. They lift or relax our mind, soothe our emotions, relieve tension and improve concentration. If the essential oils are used in diffusers they can maximize all these benefits as the diffusers can distribute the essential oil molecules in the air more effectively. Creating an atmosphere of peace and harmony. One such diffuser oil, ‘Geranium and Palmarosa Harmony essential oil’ has been sent by The Nature’s Co to write a review on it.

Before stepping into the review I want to say some words about the brand. The Nature’s Co is known for using the best natural ingredients from across the globe. All their products are absolutely environment-friendly, vegan-friendly and certified by PETA as cruelty-free.

Geranium and Palmarosa Harmony essential oil :

  Geranium oil and Palmarosa oil seem to complement each other if they are blended in a proper way, leaving you with a relaxed feeling and creating a perfect harmony in the atmosphere. Geranium oil has a light floral fragrance that revives the senses, maintains emotional balance, may relieve the symptoms of anxiety, depression or insecurity can be seen especially in the middle-aged women. On the other hand Palmarosa oil with its gentle and mild lemony rose fragrance calms and uplifts mind and mood, releases anger, provides comfort and support for feminine cycles. It also can offer to relieve from the feeling of insecurity, grief or defensiveness.

Price: This 10-ml container costs INR 495.

How To Use :

The brand advises to add 5 drops of oil with two teaspoons of water to the oil burner and let it diffuse. But more or less can be added according to the fragrance desired. But I can share you some other effective uses. They are :-

1. Add 7 to 8 drops in a teaspoon of carrier oil (I used Grapeseed oil) to bath water, to promote balance and enhance relaxation.

2. Add 2-3 drops to the warm water to take a foot bath. This removes fatigue, tension and provides rest to the tired feet, promoting a deep sleep at night.

3. Add 2-3 drops with 1 teaspoon water or with any other essential oil (I used Lavender oil) and inhale directly to reduce stress and to rejuvenate body, mind and spirit. Or you can use it as a perfume to get the whole day relaxation and refreshment.

4. Add it to your body massage oil (I used Sweet Almond oil) to get relieved mood and emotions.

My Experiences :

I can feel now your eager ears to know my experiences after using the oil in all these ways. I used the oil in my diffuser, put a dim light on and started meditation, with a soft music being played on my sound system. And the result was amazing. I saw myself with a relaxed and de-stressed mind and spirit and an 8-hourly deep sleep. I have been using the oil as a perfume since I have received it and I have been seeing myself working with full potential. As I took bath mixing with my bath water I got a really wonderful result. In short, this oil is really worth buying and shows results as the brand claims. I must repurchase for my healthy living and strongly recommend you to buy it.

BY Rating : I’ll give 5/5 stars, as I did not feel any negative point in it.



Special Note:

When you use the essential oil on your body, please do a patch test before using. The diffuser essential oils being extremely potent could cause sensitivity to someone.
