Essential & Herbal Oils

Essential & Herbal Oils

At Lümia Botanicals, our products are formulated to maximize the benefits of organic and natural herbal ingredients. By incorporating essential oils with herbal oils, we are able to create sustainable herbal wellness & aromatherapy products. 

When distilling plant matter to make an essential oil, many of the plant's constituents like flavonoids and glucosides are lost as they are too heavy to be carried through the distillation process. Not to mention, more often than not a lot plant material is required to yield very little essential oil. Just to give you an idea - it requires approximately 242,000 rose petals to make 5 mL of rose essential oil. With that many rose petals, you can make litres and litres of rose water, or in our case, rose infused oil!

And what about those constituents lost in the distillation process? They possess potent medicine that should not be overlooked when wanting to heal your body consciously and naturally. Flavonoids and glucosides help to regulate cellular activity by helping your body to function while protecting it against everyday toxins and stressors. As far as natural healing goes, what's more natural then using the whole plant in herbal formulations?

We value every part of the plant, including all of its tiny particles and constituents as we know they hold so much healing power (though we do understand not all plants are safe to use in its entirety). While essential oils are undeniably potent, you can understand now why they aren't the be-all-end-all of herbal medicine as they have been described in the media. You simply are not getting everything you can from the plant. Moreover, herbal oils can be used more frequently & liberally as they are not caustic to the body, and therefore do not need to be diluted before use. While essential oils are very strong forms of herbal medicine, they can be detrimental to your health with overuse and should be diluted before use.

This is why we have curated a healthy balance between the two - to get full plant benefits from our handmade herbal oil infusions and diluting potent & aromatic healing benefits from organic essential oils.

  • Hello!

    Because many people are now working out or doing fitness activities at the comforts of home, I thought putting up a simple cheat sheet for at-home workouts and self-care might be useful. The piece will also mention safety tips for those who are working out in gyms or wellness facilities.

    Is this something that your website visitors could find useful? If that’s the case, I’ll submit the content (for free) after it’s finished, and hopefully you’ll choose to publish it on your website.
