With a pleasant, mild scent, heather myrtle essential oil, also known as Rosalina, or Lavender Tea Tree in the aromatherapy world, is the perfect substitute for pungent tea tree and eucalyptus oils in two situations:
- aromatherapy for children during the cold season,
- for the treatment of skin problems.
- 100% natural ingredients
- Without phthalates
- From wild plants
- Air purifier & freshener
- For children during season change
- Sensitive skin
- Acne and Pimple.
Rosaline essential oil is almost ideal for children's sensitive respiratory tract, as the powerful but pungent antimicrobial eucalyptol (cineol, ~23%) is gently surrounded by the mild monoterpenoid linalool (38%), and the perfect duo gives rosemary oil a much more pleasant smell (and flavour) – a little lavender, a little citrus, and yet a quite attractive medicinal smell.
Researchers at the ethnopharmacological laboratory of the University of Porto Alegre in Brazil have found that linalool has an effective calming, sleep-enhancing effect and is rapidly resorbed through the skin and nasal mucosa.
It is lovely to read the comments of Dr Daniel Pénoël, an aromatherapist, full of praise for Rosaline essential oil, where he calls it Australia's aromatic gift to the whole world. He writes that its exceptional softness and pleasant scent make it ideal for full-body massages, a pleasant release of tension and a sleep aid. In traditional Chinese medicine, Rosaline essential oil would be considered a highly effective yin oil: its harmonising, calming and relaxing properties make it ideal for stress and sleep disturbances. In other words, the wise Rosaline oil teaches us to respect our bodies and nerves.
Daniel Pénoël, on the basis of his own research and that of his colleagues, recommends mixing rosemary essential oil with essential oil of thyme, a linalool chemotype, indicating that the two oils form a particularly strong synergy. In a blend, 5 to 10% thyme essential oil is quite sufficient to create a synergy as strong as it is subtle.
This synergy, or heather myrtle essential oil alone, is, thanks to its particularly harmonious composition, a wonderful way to breathe the warm water vapours of small children with a few drops of essential oil when winter or transitional problems begin. Dr Daniel Pénoël recommends that for three periods of three weeks, with a one-week break each evening, the Rosaline essential oil should be gently massaged or rubbed on the child's back, chest and neck. Let your child fall asleep with a fragrant sleep.
