    Question? So what exactly is the essential oil blend with the 40 oils used for? I’m curious. I don’t know if it describes that or not. I found your information on Listia.com and thought I would look into your actual site. Very nice. Does the energy one help. I have problems terrible with fatigue and feeling rested after I do sleep at night/if I sleep. I have severe chronic pain issues, fibromyalgia, muscle mytosis, osteoarthritis and a new lower back injury. Insomnia and anxiety as well amongst some other issues but we won’t go into that just yet. I’m thinking of trying some aroma therapy especially for my 40 year old body that feels like it’s 80 most days. Suggestions?

      Heather,
      The Ultimate Blend contains over 40 different essential oils. The purpose of this blend is to allow the ability to receive the therapeutic benefits of so many oils without having to purchase them all.
      This blend is intended to be used in aromatherapy only. Ingestion and topical use is not recommended.

      We do have Bedtime blend that will soon be made available. I personally have been using this blend for many years and don’t know what I would do without it! I will make sure we get it included in our listings as soon as possible.

      Lavender and Basil both have high linalool content. Linalool is a compound which studies show may help suppress genes that are responsible for stress. There is a long history of their use in bedtime teas, incense, and natural home remedies. (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/jf900420g)

      Chamomile is also found in bed-time teas, but is more famously known for it’s anti-inflammatory properties. (http://tinyurl.com/pjvhrjk)

      Besides the few oils I mentioned, there are many others that you may be interested in. Our search feature is great for this. Simply navigate to the top-left or bottom-left of the screen to use the search tool. Here you can search terms such as “pain”, “skin”, or “insomnia” to find related oils.

      I hope I’ve been of assistance! If you have any further questions, feel free! :)

      -Leon
