It’s the month of love and we’ve compiled a list of ways to say “I love and appreciate you” to yourself or to someone else. By Nikki Temkin

Harmony & healing

I began using Soil Aromatherapy Oils during Covid and have never looked back. I’m a huge fan and enthusiastic proponent of the power of essential oils to help with everything from a snotty nose and coughs (Peppermint or Wintergreen), concentration (Focus) and anxiety (Balance or Rose Geranium) to sleeping soundly (Lavender and Chamomile or Sleep blend), insect repellant (Bug Away or Citronella), PMS (Clary Sage) and treating skin rashes (Tea Tree)!

What’s more, my kids are obsessed and like to use their own remedy rollers, their favourites being Breathe Easy, Relax, Revive and Mindset– and they all smell divine. They take them to school and keep them in their pencil cases. It’s no exaggeration to say that Soil’s organic, local, pure aromatherapy oils can transform your life!

Plus, they’ve been ethically and environmentally farmed and manufactured and are totally free of any toxins and other nasties… in other words, they are totally safe to use.

The extensive toolkit includes blended body oils, remedy rollers and aroma wax melts so you can create your own collection of goodies based on your needs. The easy- to- use diffuser is also a must as is the lavender baby massage oil.

My only warning is: once you start using them, you’ll be addicted. Give yourself and your family the gift of health, harmony, wellness and healing by discovering the natural power of oils now.
