Yoga Journal Review
There are very few things essential oils cannot do. Essential oils are extracts that are made from the distillation of parts of plants (flowers, leaves, bark or fruits) into highly concentrated compounds. Making a single bottle of essential oil can take several pounds of a plant. That’s why we appreciate that Cliganic only works with farmers who practice sustainable agriculture and production to ensure that the manufacture of their oils does not harm the planet.

When inhaled, the molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves to the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain. Therefore, sniffing a few drops can keep you alert, sleep easier, and reduce anxiety.
The compounds in plants that essential oils are distilled from also help plants fight off bacteria and pests. Because of this, research suggests that certain essential oils like frankincense and tea tree oil can aid wound healing, while lemongrass can help keep mosquitos at bay.
The Cliganic Organic Aromatherapy Set is so ingenious because it contains the most popular essential oils – peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, tea tree, lemongrass, orange – as well as rosemary and frankincense, so you can get countless benefits from a single pack.
We used the energy and focus boosting mix suggested in the brochure, which was added to Guru Nada’s tower diffuser and humidifier along with the oils (2 drops each of lemongrass, orange, peppermint and rosemary) to keep you mentally alert during the work day . During yoga practice, we dabbed a few drops of peppermint and lavender on a cotton ball and tucked it under the corner of our mat to relieve stress. At night, when we add lavender essential oil to a carrier oil to dilute it (because they are so concentrated, essential oils shouldn’t be used directly on the skin) and massaged on the temples, we can calm sleep.
The quality of the essential oils can vary widely. Using pesticides on the plants can damage them, essential oils can be diluted during processing, and the compounds in the oils can degrade when exposed to heat, light, or oxygen. Cliganic says they test each shipment in an independent laboratory to ensure purity, and the oils are packaged in amber bottles to protect them from harmful heat and light.

I was really impressed with the quality of potency and effectiveness of the oils. They were equal, if not better, than some of my rival DoTerra and Young Living oils. I used them daily in the diffuser and topically with carrier oils and also made the DIY cleaning spray – it’s the bomb! I will use these in the future and recommend them to all of my friends. – Larissa N.
