Here’s what I’ll be featuring.

  • Aromatherapy Diffuser Jewelry: ‘Wear your aromatherapy in style’ with a piece of diffuser jewelry. LJ Turtle jewelry is simple to use, stylish, and aromatherapeutic. Choose from earrings, pendants and bracelets.  LJ Turtle diffuser jewelry helps you live an aromatherapy lifestyle – you will smell amazing and feel great. Bonus: Don’t forget to pick-up your FREE Aromatherapy Lifestyle Blend included with every piece of jewelry (see below for description).

 

  • Aromatherapy Lifestyle Blends: Choose from 3 of my most popular lifestyle blends. Joy supports a cheerful outlook, invigorates and uplifts our thinking and thought patterns. Winter Solstice is one of my ‘change of season blends’; use it to ‘warm’ you when it is chilly outside. And finally, use Four Thieves during the cold and flu season.  It is also a great daytime blend to help you stay focused.  These may be used with your diffuser jewelry or with a nebulizer.

 

  • Essential Oils: I’ll have a variety of single essential oils to choose from, for your DIY uses.

  • Smelly Dog Grooming Spray: Helps manage the smelliness of your best friend(s). This blend also doubles as a calming spray for anxious canines.  My grooming spray is an effective, easy-to-use, all-natural alternative to conventional pet-store products.  Piper was the black lab for which this spray gets its name (along with some help from an infamous Phoebe Buffay song).

  • Let Me Be • Bug Spray: Let Me Be is a powerful blend of essential oils that have been found to be effective in ‘deterring’ the plethora of insects warm weather brings.  I call it an ‘outdoor meditation blend’ because it allows you to do just that – meditate in peace & calm, free of pests.

Oh Canada! Essential Oils

Essential oils come from all over the world. Given our abundance of forest, Canada is well known for its ‘tree’ essential oils.

Black Spruce for example, is invigorating and revitalizing to the whole being and is suitable to use with respiratory issues and rheumatic pain.

Eastern White Pine can be used to reduce anxiety and stress.  Its warming properties make it suitable to use for rheumatic pain.  It is also a powerful essential oil to diffuse or inhale directly from the bottle – as it helps prevent the spread of flu and other air borne viruses.

Balsam Fir is the very recognizable ‘Christmas tree’ smell! It is a powerful essential oil to diffuse for relief with respiratory congestion.  Make a muscle rub by blending with a carrier oil for relief of muscular and joint pain.

carry Black Spruce, Eastern White Pine, Balsam Fir, and Spruce Hemlock, which are wild-crafted and distilled in Quebec.  I also carry a Chocolate Peppermint and White Sage from the same distiller (in very small quantities); and I recently started carrying a local lavender from a farmer in Moffat, Ontario.

Each of these is available for ‘sniff’ testing at my market stall at the Guelph Farmers’ Market on Saturdays.

LJ Turtle single essential oils are suitable for:

• Diffusing with a nebulizer
• Use with our diffuser jewelry
• Simply ‘sniff’ from the bottle
• Use with our felted designs
• At safe concentration levels, may be blended for topical use. We carry DIY roll-on kits

Happy blending!
