How essential are Essential Oils to your Life?


What are Essential Oils?

First off, they are not really ‘Oils’!  They are in fact the natural, distilled essence of plants that contain fragrant elements. Plus, they are not even ‘oily’! They are called ‘essential’ because they contain the unique fragrance of the plant they are taken from.

What is most attractive about essential oils, apart from their very obvious perfume, is that they are possibly the most potent source of natural medicinal inputs your medicine cabinet can have! They are also used in cosmetics & foods, but that’s another story.

As a firm believer in holistic living and a healthy lifestyle, you would really benefit from getting to know more about these ‘oils’.

Let’s look at some popular Essential Oils & their Uses

Natural Essential Oils are refreshing and fragrant. They are known to support the respiratory system and to soothe muscles after exercise. Used in potpourris, diffusers or in bath water, they also stimulate the brain and reduce stress and fatigue.

Lavender Oil is used in perfume and in aromatherapy. It has a calming effect which aids in relaxation and is good in the treatment of respiratory infection.

Used in aromatherapy, Rose Oil has healing properties that include decreasing of blood pressure and breathing rate, which is good for stress and anxiety relief.

The exotic and sweet Jasmine Oil is great for a number of health uses including childbirth, depression, respiration and fertility!

Rosemary Oil is used in perfumes, as food flavoring and improves memory.

Its use as a tonic, tranquilizer and digestive aid makes Cinnamon Oil a very popular essential oil.

Frankincense Oil is a very healing essential oil used for depression, infection and to boost the immune system.

Peppermint Oil is a fresh boost to use in alleviating indigestion, colds, stress, headaches, low energy levels and sore muscles.

The strong, sweet, woody scented Eucalyptus Oil is used in antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties uses.

As you can see, the uses of Essential Oils are many. They certainly make life much more painless and easier. If you do not have a good range of essential oil based products in your medicine chest, it’s time you looked to Natural Mantra’s treasure trove.

Home – Blessed by nature. Nurtured by you.


A sound mind resides in a sound body. A sound body, in a sound home. You may find yourself asking what a sound home looks or feels like. Well, the truth is that there’s no definite answer to it actually depends on what you make of your home. Each home has to its credit, a different and unique vibe and it’s upon the resident to bring it alive. Given our hectic schedules and other engagements or commitments that leave little time in our hands to nurture our habitat, it is important that we recognize at first how we could gradually start infusing a healthy life into it and in turn enhance our own living experience.

What might perhaps not come as a surprise to many is that the most enriching moments spent at home, alone or in company of others, do not require elaborate arrangements. It is those simple, earthly and feel good moments of consciousness from time to time when everything positive about the ambience makes it conducive to have a wholesome, relaxing and calming time. That’s what a home is for after all, right?

Take for instance, lighting. Traditional fluorescent lighting and CFLs make up most of the lighting requirements in an average household today. True. But, it doesn’t have to be so all the time. Especially, when the air around is replete with festive frenzy. And lest we forget, candles and diyas are always a draw for the discerning homemaker. Most people at this time of the year are probably looking for new and affordable ways to light up their homes. Natural Mantra recognizes these needs and has decked up its inventory with a healthy and organic range of lighting options. For e.g. the Soulflower Reed Diffuser and the Passion Indulge Traditional candle diffusers pack the double advantage of controlled diffused lighting from the candle and fill the air with heady natural aroma that’s long lasting and invigorating. Aroma ceramic diffusers are made up of natural Thai clay which has a predisposed intrinsic property of being a high heat retaining agent, making it immune to discoloration and any absorption of aromas emitted by the essential oils thereafter. In our opinion, there’s no better way to say NO to paraffin wax and switch over to natural.  Should you wish to know more, you could do so at:

It is often this small change in attitude and choices, in this case, choosing to bring home a candle diffuser made from the elements of nature, rather than one which is made with paraffin wax that marks the beginning of truly dwelling in a healthy home.

In fact let’s talk about other aspects of housing as well.

If cleanliness is next to godliness, then shouldn’t cleaning healthy be on a similar pedestal?  But of course. It is in fact the onus of the one tending to garments to ensure that they are treated in a natural way, and subjected to minimal abrasion. Regular chlorine-equipped detergents, for e.g. take the life out of fabrics and significantly reduce their life span, resulting in a gradual loss of vibrancy and softness. For the  purpose of delivering you free from the worries of your clothes’ restricted life span, go for organic, chlorine-free and biodegradable Rustic Art Chlorine-free laundry detergent for regular clothes. One of the benefits of using such natural alternatives for detergents is that the rinsed water after the cleaning process can be used to water plants and act as a healthy and enriching soil fertilizer. And when this bio laundry range of single processed detergents is fused with lemon extracts, one can rest assured that what they wear is not just healthy, but it’s fresh and smells fabulously natural too.

Besides lighting and laundering products, there are plenty of other household items that could really use some tender natural care too. Case in point, those expensive bronze utensils that you had cherished for ages which have also probably been handed down through generations.

Nature often works in ways that tarnishes these utensils over regular use or if they’re left unused for a while. During such times wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a product that can not only clean them effectively but also restore their shine and luster? We recommend you try out the Omved Bronze Cleaning Powder from Natural Mantra to remarkably get back the glory of true princely dining experience.
