The hero of our Nourishing Hand Duo and complimentary Aromatic Candle, our Bergamot, Neroli, Cedar fragrance shows top notes of bergamot and tangelo; heart notes of lavandin and neroli; and base notes of cedar and orange flower for a wooded, warm, floral and resinous aroma with sweet herbaceous overtones.
Extracted from the rind of bergamot fruit, this essential oil is refreshing and rounded; sweet but complex; with floral, herbal, and resinous undertones. It is known for its ability to reduce feelings of stress, anxiety and fatigue and increase positive mood.
Studies have shown that inhaling bergamot signals the brain to release dopamine and serotonin, which slows the heart rate, lowers blood pressure and has a calming effect on the mind and body.
Neroli oil is steam-distilled from the flowers of the orange blossom tree, which must be handpicked due to their delicate nature. Neroli oil emits a rich and exotic floral scent with sweet citrus overtones. It is known for its soothing qualities and ability to promote feelings of relaxation, stabilise blood pressure and reduce pulse rate.
When inhaled, neroli oil has been shown to have a calming effect on mood by reducing levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
Distilled from the needles, leaves, bark, and berries of cedar trees, cedarwood oil has a warm, woody, herbaceous and comforting aroma.
Inhaling cedarwood oil is known to improve cerebral activity, relax the body, enhance concentration, decrease hyperactivity, ease tension and clear the mind. This grounding aroma promotes emotional balance and calms the nervous.
How to incorporate Bergamot, Neroli, Cedar into your daily routine
Create a hand care ritual with our Nourishing Hand Duo
Set aside some time to deeply cleanse hard working hands with our pH balanced organic liquid soap. Dedicate several minutes to lathering the soap and gently scrubbing your nail beds, between your fingers and the palms of your hands, while the fragrance of bergamot, neroli, cedar permeates the air.
Complete your ritual by taking a seat and applying our Nourishing Hand Cream to your hands, wrists and lower arms. Use long slow strokes to apply the cream while you slow your breathing, deeply inhale the calming aroma, and feel stress and tension leave your body.
Create an evening mindfulness ritual with our Aromatic Candle
At the end of the day take a comfortable seat in a quiet room and light your Aromatic Candle in Bergamot, Neroli, Cedar. As the fragrance gently fills the room, breathe in slowly through your nose and out through your mouth and feel your mind and muscles unwind.
Relax with a cup of tea, a chapter of a book, or simply let your thoughts wander for a precursor to a restorative sleep.
