    Feature Article...

    Diffusers vs Oil Burners

    I am often asked what is the best way to use essential oils around the home.

    My favourite way is using an ultrasonic diffuser. I used to use an oil burner for many years. In fact, it used to be the main way I used oils before I found the pure, unadulterated and therapeutic grade essential oils I use today.

    Today, I wouldn't even consider putting them in an oil burner. Why? Because firstly, if you take a good look at your oil burner, what is the water doing? It has bubbles in it. This means it is close to or is boiling!

    Have you ever boiled your vegies on high for an excessive amount of time? If you have, you will understand when I say, using an oil burner boils your essential oil! It potentially destroys all the active and therapeutic chemical constituents of the oil and renders it useless.

    It will smell good but no therapeutic benefits!

    An ultrasonic diffuser does not heat the essential oil or the water. This is the most important factor for getting therapeutic benefits from essential oils.

    When I started using an ultrasonic diffuser, I noticed the difference immediately. The room smelt fantastic and my family and I were more relaxed, stayed healthy and generally interacted better together as a family.

    I changed the essential oils in the diffuser to suit the mood that I wanted; relaxed or joyous, sensual or fun, whatever I wanted I could create within the room with my diffuser!

    I love my diffuser and wouldn't be without it. Switch to an ultrasonic diffuser and notice a difference today. If you haven't got one, see my special offer above and contact me for more details.

    OCOTEA: Bliss Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Of the Month


    You may be wondering--what on Earth is Ocotea?

    Ocotea essential oil is extracted from the stem and leaves of the ocotea tree in Ecuador, and is related to the cinnamon species. This essential oil has an aroma that is different from any common cinnamon. Ocotea has the highest level of alpha-humulene of any essential oil.

    Ocotea is harvested from a large tree found in the Amazon Basin of Ecuador, from sea level up to 1,500 meters in altitude.

    The trees are divided into male and female trees, with only the female trees producing foliage suitable for distillation into essential oils. Historical usage of ocotea dates back more than 500 years, when it was used to aromatize sweets and cakes.

    Though there are hints of a cinnamon base, ocotea is different from traditional cinnamon. Ocotea has high levels of alpha-humulene—one of the highest of any known essential oil. Alpha-humulene can balance the body’s internal response to irritation. Only copaiba essential oil has comparable levels of this natural plant.

    The Essential Oils Desk Reference does not have any current data about Ocotea as it is such a new discovery.


    Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of the reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, please consult a health care practitioner prior to use.


    For information about releasing emotional patterns read Carolyn L. Mein's Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils

    Gary Young has been studying the effects of Ocotea essential oil for the following:

    • Balancing the blood sugar
    • Increasing metabolism
    • Potential for weight loss

    Ocotea has been traditionally used as a disinfectant and for digestive support. It has the highest levels of alpha-humulene in any known essential oil, which helps balance the body’s internal response to irritation. It has far less skin sensitivity than cinnamon bark or cassia.

    If you would like to find out more about Ocotea and other amazing essential oil research, make sure you contact Jen to register your interest in attending a "Wellness" Seminar near you.
