This month’s box is all about improving digestion! I’ve heard a lot lately about using essential oils to soothe physical problems, and I find it really interesting.
The information sheet from Herb Stop is really impressive. There’s a lot of knowledge packed in here! Every oil they sent is matched with three different usage tips. That’s really helpful!
Here are the vials I received for this month! They are (from left to right):
Black Pepper – I was totally expecting to sneeze when I smelled this one, but I didn’t! I couldn’t imagine smelling it without sneezing, but it actually has a scent besides “sneezy.” It has a warm scent, and apparently is good for earaches and joint pains as well as digestive ailments.
Coriander – I was hoping the coriander would smell a bit like cilantro, as coriander is made from the seed of the cilantro plant, but they actually don’t smell much alike at all. Coriander is useful in stimulating digestion and relieving gas.
Tangerine – Mmmmmm, this smells exactly like tangerine to me, and I love it. It’s such a happy scent! In addition to aiding digestion, it also helps to control cellulite! Who knew?
Tummy Soothe Roll-On – This is a blend of ginger, coriander, anise, fennel, lemon, cardamom, black pepper, peppermint, and nutmeg. Whew!
Verdict: This was my second package from Herb Stop, and I have to say, I am really enjoying learning about all the different usages of essential oils! They also have application techniques, which is useful, too. Not everything is just place-under-your-nose-and-breathe-in, which is my main way of using essential oils because I don’t know all this stuff yet! I think if you are interested in sampling and learning about essential oils and aromatherapy, this is an excellent subscription to try!
