Essential oils seem to be everywhere these days. I can’t browse facebook without seeing someone tout their belief in this all-natural sensation. When I first learned about essential oils, I learned about larger, more well known companies, which is great. It wasn’t until I really began to research essential oils on my own and read more than a few articles about them that I stumbled into the Plant Therapy brand.
As I investigated the website a bit more, I really dove into what oils should be used for certain things, and how to use the oils safely and effectively. Here’s some more information about the brand, specifically:

I began having conversations with certified aromatherapists and learning more about the different uses of essential oils. One of my favorite ways to use EOs is diffusing them. I’ve personally tried really hard to rid my house of nasty chemicals, such as those in spray air-fresheners or fabric scent sprays, and love that I can use 100% pure and natural diffused essential oils to not only make my house smell fresh, but to also diffuse the healing properties of these oils throughout my home. Many times I will use the Kidsafe Germ Destroyer blend diffused in my living room after a day where Vivien would have been exposed to lots of germs (ie: anywhere in public these days.)
However, after the kids go to sleep and I’m settling in for the night with my computer, and hours of editing client sessions in lightroom and photoshop, I love diffusing oils to simply smell, and improve my clarity and mood. (I’m a total “smell person”)
Some of the scents have been “misses” with Eli, and he has strongly told me not to diffuse it with him around. (For example, he says peppermint gives him a headache, and isn’t especially fond of lavender as well.)
When I recently bought some rose hydrosol (water) from Plant Therapy to use as a face toner before bed, he finally admitting to actually enjoying the smell of roses. I began searching for rose oil, but it is on the expensive side. That’s when I found the Sensual Blend from Plant Therapy.
There are strong floral overtones in Sensual, from the Ylang Ylang and Jasmine, yet also an earthy, woodsy smell from the Sandalwood and Patchouli. Orange oil and lavender are used to soften the oils used in the blend, making it my favorite, go-to oil to diffuse. It’s the perfect aphrodisiac oil for diffusing, mixing with epson salt for a romantic scented bath, massage oil mixed with a carrier oil, or any body care product.
Sensual Synergy from Plant Therapy is the perfect scent for Valentine’s Day!
One sniff will get you hooked, and the good news is that Plant Therapy has generously agreed to giveaway a 10ml bottle of Sensual to one lucky reader.

Disclaimer: I received one bottle of sensual to review, however, I was not compensated for this post. Plant Therapy is an independant company and does not have distributors, so I did not benefit financially from this post at all- I just wanted to share the love for a great company and a great product. Plant Therapy does not recommend using this specific oil blend around children under 7 years old (learn more about their suggestions here.) I personally love diffusing this blend on my first floor of my home after my kids are asleep upstairs. This post was not meant to provide any medical advice.
