Spiral Elixir is offering one of our readers a giveaway of one 5ml “Recover” Essential Oil Blend; one 5ml “Moon Time” Essential Oil Blend; and one “Energy Cleansing” Spritzer , a value of $42.00.
From our reviewer, Jennifer at Hybrid Rasta Mama:
As someone who uses a LOT of essential oils, I have tried more brands that I care to admit. Although I am a researcher extraordinaire, there is a lot of conflicting information and misinformation about the true makeup of the essential oil brands that are pretty popular these days. I was frequently frustrated trying to determine where the herbs were source from, how they were distilled, what quality controls were in place, and much more! My head would spin!
I frequently lamented my woes to a dear friend who was working towards a degree in spiritual aromatherapy. Lauren completely agreed with my frustrations and we used to casually joke about the need for someone we personally knew and trusted to create a line of essential oils that were pure, impeccably sourced, and processed following the highest standards.
And then one day, I stopped joking. I very seriously told Lauren than she needed to create a line of essential oils that would literally blow all the other popular oils out of the park. She chuckled but a few days later she shared her news…Lauren was indeed going to embark upon the research stage of determining what it would take to create the highest quality essential oils possible while still making them affordable (and not every compromising the oil’s integrity in the process). And it wasn’t because of me. She had been manifesting this idea for some time.
I followed along as Lauren researched everything imaginable related to essential oil sourcing and production. I learned the good, the bad, and the ugly. I sometimes lost hope that creating such a pure line of essential oils was even possible. But then, after what seemed liked years of work, Lauren shared the amazing news that she was indeed, going to be able to develop her own line of essential oils.
In Spring of 2013, Spiral Elixir Essential Oils was born!
I am going to but right to the chase! Here are the 6 reasons why the Spiral Elixir line of Essential Oils are truly the best oils you will ever use:
- Lauren works one-on-one with the people who make the oils.
- The oils are the highest quality available (as Lauren believes you have to have superior quality for health reasons and because she has high standards for her customers and her own family.)
- Lauren is contributing to small farms that need the money and that grow the plants and trees she needs in their native land, organically.
- Every batch of essential oils is from the First Distillation, to ensure that it is the most potent collection.
- Spiral Elixir essential oils are 100% unadultered… just pure, raw essential oils. All of the oils are therapeutic quality and Third Party Tested for any impurities.
- The oils are affordable and reasonably priced.
Not only are Spiral Elixir essential oils the best I have ever used, they also come with a wealth of resources, free! Lauren has put a lot of time into creating free information to help you better select the essential oils that you need. On her website you will find:
- An Introduction to Essential Oils
- Essential Oil Profiles
- How To Choose Essential Oils
- How To Use Essential Oils
- How To Store Essential Oils
- Information About Carrier Oils
- Content and Notes on her unique essential oil blends
- And More!
Lauren also offers personal essential oil consultations. Trust me – you might *think* you know what you need but after spending a few minutes talking to Lauren, you quickly realize what a special opportunity it is to have her walking you through what oils will truly benefit you. Essential oils are so much more than what most people realize. Lauren opens your awareness to just how powerful essential oils can be!
So let’s chat briefly about my personal experience with these essential oils! I actually wrote an entire post about My Essential Oil Experiment as it related to a growth that was abscessing below my tailbone. You can come back and read that post because it really is interesting (and helpful if you or someone you know is dealing with a cyst, boil, abscess or the like). But I would like to share more about my experience with the Spiral Elixir blend “No Worries.”
No Worries: Blue Tansy, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang Extra, Lime, Mandarin, Lavender, and Rose in a base of fractionated coconut oil.
This Blend was formulated to inspire one’s creativity, and to bring harmony and balance into the body. It grounds emotions, dispels anger and resentment, and helps one to move through frustration, tension and thoughts of a traumatic past. It eases anxiety and stress, and promotes a feeling of having nothing to worry about after all. It relaxes and soothes the nervous system, and elevates the mind to feel free and clear. Will enhance faith in the good and make all the negative and fearing thoughts disappear.
Sounds like something all of us parents need right? Well, it is.
I am a worry-wort. I came out of the womb stressed out and worrying about everything. I am always preparing for the worst case scenario and often lose the current moment because I am trying to wrap my brain around the “what ifs.”
When Lauren was developing her line of therapeutic blends, I told her that I needed one to deal with the overwhelm of life. And she delivered. Lauren actually more than delivered.
I applied the blend to my temples and the back of my neck as soon as I felt that familiar feeling of stress creep in. A few minutes later, I found myself going back to my morning chores, completely forgetting whatever it was that was worrying me. Now, my life stress wasn’t melting away or anything, but this blend did work to address my momentary panic over nothing. Obviously.
I got to try it again several times in the same day and it definitely helped me relax and let go. Literally – it helps move you from a place where the glass is half empty with no way out and into a place of calamity where you can focus on what is important and not the “what ifs.”
I have been using this blend every day and find myself needing it less and less. No more hourly applications here! Nope – a little in the morning, at midday, and before bed kelps me keep level headed and not fall prey to my inner worrywart!
I have actually tried a lot of Lauren’s oils and every. single. one. is hands-down, the best I have ever used. I do not say that casually either. I personally feel that Spiral Elixir oils are the best essential oil singles and blends that you can purchase at an affordable price. And they last a really long time too since they are so incredibly powerful!
