With any order over $79, choose one of our sampler packs: a five bottle Citrus oil sampler, a three bottle Frankincense sampler, a 3 bottle Lavender sampler, or a 3 bottle Chamomile sampler.

If you’re order is between $49 and $79, just request the ‘Rose Hydrosol’ in the comments box of the checkout page. If over $79, note ‘Rose Hydrosol’, and the sampler pack of your choice: ‘Citrus Sampler’, ‘Frankincense Sampler’, ‘Lavender Sampler’, or ‘Chamomile Sampler’.
Also, if you qualify for free shipping, enter ‘first-order’ (if it’s your first order with us), or ‘free-ship’ (if your order is over $99) in the coupon code box, after selecting and applying our standard shipping.
Each sampler pack includes:
- Citrus Sampler: a 5ml bottle of organic Red Mandarin, Bergamot, Wild Orange, Lemon and Pink Grapefruit.
- Frankincense Sampler: a 2ml bottle of wildcrafted Boswellia Carteri CO2, Boswellia Seratta CO2, and hydro-distilled Boswellia Sacra.

These samplers are a great way to find your favorite oil of each variety. Plus, our Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol is a wonderful, all-purpose aromatic and skin care product. It is thought to ‘clear the air’ with a few ‘spritzes’ in any space – it’s also a fantastic skin toner for all skin types.
About Each Sampler Pack
The Citrus Sampler includes our cold-pressed Italian Lemon, Italian Bergamot, Italian Red Mandarin, South African Pink Grapefruit and Wild Sweet Orange from the Dominican Republic – and incredible diversity of aromas and therapeutic benefits in one kit!
Lemon essential oil is used most commonly for ‘cleansing’ – both the body, and around the home. It is ingestable (as are all these oils)…add 1 to 5 drops of lemon to a cool glass of water anytime of day (really, first thing in the morning is best, but it’s certainly refreshing at any time). The action of lemon essential oil can encourage the liver to produce more bile and flush out toxins.
Aromatically, lemon is the ‘highest note’ in aromatherapy. It is frequently used as an ‘uplifting’ aroma, particularly when doing mentally-active tasks. Research has found that diffusing lemon essential oil during studying and test taking actually improved test scores.
Add a couple drops of oil to each cup of warm water for cleaning surfaces in the kitchen and a around the house for a great, fresh aroma. We even sprinkle a little on the rugs before vacuuming when we’re really in a cleaning frenzy!
Bergamot is THE most widely-researched anti-depressant aromatic. Studies have shown the regular inhalation of bergamot essential oil, tested against a placebo, improve scores of mood – bringing about a positive, healthy outlook.
Other research has suggested Bergamot be included as an ‘official’ complimentary medical therapy, as its inhalation has been noted to reduce the need for pain medication after surgery. Bergamot also has anti-viral properties, shown effective against the herpes virus.
And, well, it’s one of our all-time favorite essential oils to diffuse by its very own.
In France, Mandarin is known as “the children’s remedy”, as it manages to calm younger kids in a twofold manner: It contains a unique molecule in its natural chemical makeup that specifically calms children. Put a little in a diffuser in your house when it’s that time of day to “wind down”, and see what happens!
It’s also excellent for tummy troubles - it seems to act by moving bile from the liver – thereby being a gentle stimulant to the digestive system in general. Add several drops to a 1/2 teaspoon of any carrier oil in the palm of your hand and rub on your child’s abdomen…both the aromatic calming and physiological support can happen this way.
Like Italy and its rich soils for Lemon, Mandarin and Bergamot, South Africa also has soils and climates to grow wonderful citrus fruit. From here comes both our Pink and Ruby Red grapefruit oils. Its aroma is out-of-this-world…
Grapefruit’s aroma, like Bergamot’s, is a real ‘bringer of smiles’. It’s a very uplifting scent – and like lemon, can be used to flavor your water, and add a little cleansing action.
On psychological and emotional levels, grapefruit is noted to assist in cases of depression where one may tend to overindulge in food or chemicals to pacify their pain. The oil may clear the psychological ‘heat’ and congestion that result from self-criticism and blame, promoting a lightness of spirit.
In aromatherapy applications, grapefruit is refreshing, cheering, slightly euphoria-inducing and slightly energizing. Grapefruit’s sweet and familiar aroma can evoke warm feelings that melt sour dispositions.
From the Dominican Republic comes our Wild Sweet Orange. While ‘sweet orange’ itself is a wonderfully-uplifting scent, the ‘wild’ sweet orange is an incredible, unique aroma not to be missed.
Its aroma is unlike any citrus fruit you’ve tried…it is ‘orange’, but with a twist. Uplifting, complex, sweet, yet not quite as ‘candy-like’ as the more common ‘sweet orange’.
Our Frankincense sampler includes each of our most popular Frankincense varieties. From Ethiopia comes our CO2-distilled Boswellia Carteri, from India comes our CO2-distilled Boswellia Seratta, and from Oman, our hydro-distilled Boswellia Sacra (Sacred Frankincense).
Frankincense has a very diverse number of therapeutic properties. All these Frankincense varieties share these properties – though each has a unique aroma.
- Anti-aging skin care: Frankincense is known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and general skin aging over time. Just add 12 to 24 drops to each ounce of any skin care base you like.
- Aromatically, Frankincense is thought to be both calming and centering. A drop or two can be placed on the temples, the oil inhaled directly from the bottle, or from a diffuser.
- Frankincense is the most thoroughly-researched anti-cancer essential oil. While no protocol yet exists, the oil can be taken internally – preferably with guidance from a health care professional.
- Frankincense is noted as “THE immune system modulator” in the Encyclopedia of Aromatherapy. It is thought to strengthen the immune system for defense from any infection. Apply to the soles of the feet or inhale as above.
- Frankincense may remove warts (we personally have had great results!)…simply apply a drop of Frankincense to the wart daily until it is reducing in size. We’ve found the wart will continue to reduce in size once this first reduction is noticed, without further oil application.
As you know, Lavender is probably the most diverse in its therapeutic applications of any essential oil. Lavender is well-known to calm anxiety when inhaled (and even when ingested), to aid with sleep, and to reduce pain and inflammation of wounds.
Each of our Lavender essential oils is of the highest therapeutic grade, though you’ll find each has its own unique aroma. The Wild is rich and full, the Highland is soft and sweet, and the Bulgarian is more pronounced in the middle notes than both of these (often appreciated by those who generally don’t care for Lavender essential oil, as it’s not quite as ‘bright’ in the ‘high’ notes).
Each Chamomile essential oil has distinctly different aromas and therapeutic properties. Our organic Roman Chamomile is the most popular Chamomile essential oil of all, used for calming in a similar manner as Lavender. It’s also wonderful (as are all the Chamomile essential oils) in skin and hair care formulas.
German Chamomile is considered one of the most potent anti-inflammatory essential oils. It is noted by prominent aromatherapists to not use more than 2% of this oil in your blends, or it may be ‘pro-inflammatory’! It has a sweet, cooling aroma, and deep blue color, from the presence of the anti-inflammatory constituent ‘chamulzine’.
Cape Chamomile has the most widely-loved of all Chamomile aromas, with therapeutic actions that are somewhere between the two Chamomile essential oils above. It is beautifully floral and sweet, with a light blue color. It too can be used in skin and hair care formulas.
Our organic Bulgarian Rose Hydrosol (a.k.a. ‘Rose Water’) is excellent for virtually any skin care application. It is well-known as a skin ‘toner’, and you can simply close your eyes and spray a little directly from the bottle on your face (and then smell like roses, too!).
It’s also great for ‘clearing the air’ in any space. Again, just spray as much as you like into the room and enjoy the scent.
Remember, you can receive both the Rose Hydrosol and ANY sampler pack of your choice with any order over $79, and receive the Hydrosol alone with any order over $49. Just be sure to make a note in the comments box of the checkout page of your selection(s).
And don’t forget the free shipping! Again, all first-time customers can use the coupon code ‘first-order’, and with any order over $99, use the coupon code ‘free-ship’. If you have ANY trouble with the coupon codes, please enter them in the comments box as well, and we’ll remove any shipping cost before charging your order here.
