Coffee ~ 5ml
- Source: Venezuela Production method: Cold-pressed from dry-roasted beans Botanical name: Coffea arabica We have found a distiller in Venezuela who is producing coffee essential oil, by dry roasting the beans and cold-pressing them to produce the oil. It has a much deeper coffee aroma than the Brazilian variety, which is distilled from the beans. Coffee’s greatest use I have found is to help relieve the cravings when one is first letting go of coffee. It is great to put into an inhaler, and inhale whenever one requires a burst of energy–or a “taste” of delicious coffee. Even though it is not exactly like drinking caffeine, the familiar aroma has an association with energy that can boost our nervous system into a feeling of refreshment and energy, just by smelling it! Coffee is also great for adding into colon cleansing water. Like coffee itself, it can encourage the rhythmic contraction of colon walls, called peristalsis–helping to tone the colon and expel toxic accumulation. It is a stimulating oil, great for staying awake, and making us alert when we are dragging. If you get the 4 o’clock blues, try rubbing coffee essential oil on the solar plexus area, just below the heart. Coffee helps create mental clarity and increases concentration. Coffee can be blended with other oils, used as an internal homeopathic remedy for coffee addiction, and used for stimulating purposes. It can stimulate skin circulation and makes a great spa treatment for cellulite skin condition. It also carries strong antioxidant properties which can relieve stress and reduce the effects of aging.
