Experimental studies have shown that aromatic compounds (essential oils) produced from trees can lower the production of stress hormones, reduce anxiety, and increase the pain threshold. When inhaled, aromatic plant essential oils increase the antioxidant defense system in the human body.
Studies have also shown an association between higher amounts of volatile aromatic compounds in the air and improved immune function. Specifically, higher levels of volatile aromatic compounds cause increased production of anti-cancer proteins in the blood as well as higher levels of the front-line immune defenders called natural killer cells (NK). Adults who have higher NK activity tend to have a lower frequency of colds and flu.
Distilled Water, Pink Himalayan Salt, Citrus reticulata var deliciosa (Green Mandarin), Picea mariana (Black Spruce), Pinus sylvestris (Pine Needle), Salvia officinalis (Sage), and Eucalyptus globulus (Eucalyptus Globulus)
With a sweet, uplifting aroma, Green Mandarin can help soothe and calm nervous tension, sadness, and insomnia when inhaled. It inspires optimism, invites us to nourish the child within, and to not become overwhelmed by our problems.
With a wonderfully fresh and uplifting aroma, Black Spruce possesses the ability to free and calm the mind while elevating the spirit. Like all conifer oils, it is an emotionally grounding oil, yet at the same time stimulating, making it an excellent refresher for physical or mental exhaustion or in times of stress or anxiety.
The combination of Pine Needle's invigorating, balsamic scent and its anti-inflammatory properties make it very effective against stress and tension. It also works well as both a decongestant and an expectorant to rid the body of excess fluid build-up and mucous.
Sage has been used in traditional rituals to clear negative energy for hundreds of years. Many studies have shown that inhaling Sage may lower blood pressure and reduce feelings of anxiety. Its use can also be beneficial to brain function and mental health, with possible effects that include enhanced memory, focus, mental clarity, and feelings of balance and relaxation.
This variety of Eucalyptus, commonly known as the Blue Gum Tree, is a potent respiratory oil beneficial in treating bacterial infections, colds, flu, sinusitis, bronchitis, ashtma, and chronic cough. It also has good psychological abilities that help in lifting mood, easing stress or anxiety, restoring emotional balance, and aiding focus and concentration.
Mined in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains, this salt contains dozens of trace minerals and studies have shown it's one of the purest salts available. According to The Lung Institute, salt is both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. It removes pathogens like pollen in the air, and can decrease immune system oversensitivity.
