It always makes me feel good when customers come into the shop and immediately ask what ‘smells so good?‘ Truth is, there are all sorts of great smelling goodies at Somewhere Over the Rainbow.
We carry a wide selection of incense, resins, candles, room and linen sprays, and the very versatile, Essential Oil.
And this is the main reason the shop always smells (and I think, Feels as well, so Good). I have a diffuser that I use daily, choosing the Oil not only to smell good, but often to address our moods or how we’re feeling in the Morning. If seasonal allergies are being an issue, I often put in a few drops of Eucalyptus, Peppermint or Lavender. For a headache, I might go with Rosemary, Lavender or Sandalwood. During the winter months, I often use Four Thieves (or Gurus), Tea Tree Oil or one of the immune enhancing blends.
No matter what I decide on, the whole store smells fresh and wonderful.
About Our Essential Oils
We carry a brand called Plant Therapy in our store. Their high quality oils are Certified Safe, Cruelty Free and tested for Quality. This company is committed to maximizing Sustainability in production and packaging. All of these things are very important to us also, so the product is a good fit.
We carry a number of the more popular single ingredient oils like lavender, peppermint, lemon and orange, wintergreen, tea tree and bergamot. We also stock a good selection of specialty blends like Travel, Meditation, Balance or Germfighter. And for fun and stimulating aroma, you might try Chocolate Truffle, Peach Artemesia or Fresh Picked Citrus.
For Spiritual Growth and Enhancement
We also carry a more esoteric selection of products based on essential oils. If you’re zodiacally inclined, and adversely affected by the retrograde action of the Communication Planet like so many, there’s an oil for that. Plant Therapy’s Mercury Retrograde is blended with peaceful grounding and open communication in mind. Clary Sage and Texas Cedarwood, along with other oils like Mandarin, Cypress and Roman Chamomile creates a soothing and calming atmosphere.
We recently began stocking some of the pre-diluted blends in roll-ons aimed at balancing and activating the energy centers (Chakras) of the subtle body. These oil blends can be applied to pulse points or the area of the body corresponding with each specific Chakra quite safely. There is a formulation for each of the seven chakric centers.
(Note: always be very cautious about using pure essential oils on the skin. Most should be diluted in a carrier oil like coconut, jojoba or avocado oil. There are a number of others as well. It is recommended that you do a patch test before applying the blended essential and carrier oil widely. Allergies to any of these substances are possible.)
Aside from the Oils, the Blends, and the the Roll-ons, we also offer several models of Diffusers (battery, USB and passive) to use with the oils.
We carry some seasonal blends too, like Candy Cane and Holiday. Ask us about our Christmas Holiday Collections of Oils, and Plant Therapy’s scented Holiday Candles as well.
Essential Oils are, well, essential. They put the power of the plant kingdom at our fingertips. Whether they are inhaled, applied topically (diluted) or taken internally (do your homework; there is a great deal of information online as to use and safety, and some great books on the subject.) , these herbs and plants enhance our lives.
We are proud of the quality of the brand we have chosen for Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and will be glad to help you with any questions or concerns. If we don’t know something, it is always our pleasure to find out. See you soon.
