Homeopathic/Herbal Properties of Root Beer Essential Oil Melange
Uses for Root Beer Essential Oil Melange
External–application to points, meridians, and energy centers, bath, massage oil for sore or tired muscles
Root beer essential oil melange carries the healing properties of sweet birch and peppermint essential oils, its main constituents. This delicious blend can bring a beautiful aromatic attraction to blends that may be therapeutically correct, but lacking in general appeal.
Adding a natural, high quality melange to essential oil blends can be compared to adding a little honey to your herbal tonics–to make the medicine taste good. They will not alter or remove the healing properties of real essential oils, but will bring a complimentary aroma into the blend. They are perfect for blends designed for young children, sensitive individuals, or people who have strong reactions to aromas.
