Calming and relaxing in the diffuser with Easy Air at night

Helping skin recover, great for after shaving
Easing muscle and head tension

Tea Tree/Melaleuca

Cleansing and rejuvenating the skin, for a bright, healthy complexion
Healthy immune function, combined with On Guard, Frankincense, Tea Tree, Oregano and Lemon as the Winter Warrior
Soothing minor skin irritations and blemishes, another one that’s great after shaving
Helps purify and freshen the air, great for cleaning one drop of Tea Tree and On Guard in your mop bucket to clean the floors

Easy Air

Feel clear and calm when breathing
Applied topically to the chest, back, or bottom of feet, or diffused at night time to calm the senses before a restful night’s sleep
Diffuse, inhale directly from palms or rub on chest or feet when environmental threats are high

In cooking, drinks, teas, anything that needs a “Christmasy” flavour

Ice Blue

Apply on muscles, feet and knees before and after exercise
Massage Ice Blue with a few drops of carrier oil onto growing kids’ legs before bedtime
Rub Ice Blue on your lower back after a day of heavy lifting at work or during a move


Supporting a healthy immune system
One of the primary oils in the Winter Warrior roller that we use when our immune system is compromised
Powerful cleansing and purifying agent
Promotes clean and healthy feet when applied topically


Massage on the abdomen, in a clockwise direction to ease digestive discomfort
