    AUGUST SALES

    For the entire month of August save 10% off our entire ACCESSORIES category — Bottles, diffusers and jewelry, Oh my!

    And, to help you stay cool during August heat, we are continuing our clearance on selected Hydrosols. NOTHING is as refreshing as an icy cold hydrosol spritz. We are putting last year’s stocks on clearance. Because of proper storage they are still fresh and pristine. We want to clear the way for new stocks. Save 50% on retail sizes of Holy Basil, Rose Geranium, Monarda (Beebalm), Lemon Thyme, and Lemon Tea Tree hydrosols. (Some supplies very limited!)

    We are also clearing our earlier batch of Organic Red Mandarine. It is decolorized, the perfumers love it, and we would like you to take it away. Save 50%!


    BACK IN STOCK

  • Helichrysum Hydrosol (and, because we have Heli Hydrosol, the Rosacea Sampler Kit is also back in stock.)
  • Organic Frankincense(Boswellia carterii, wild harvested in Somalia, distilled in a certified organic facility in the US.)
  • Just in, a sparkling new crop of Green Mandarine, one of Christi's favorites, and this batch delighted her!
  • Fresh crops of organic, USA produced, German Chamomile and Lavender Hydrosols and organic Italian Neroli Hydrosol,
  • From India! Himalayan Lavender, Rare Golden Champa Absolute, more Ruh Khus, Gingergrass.
  • We ordered a small shipment of St. John’s Wort Infused Oil while we wait for more from our French producer.

  • INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

    For our International Clients: The USPS has finally started to allow tracking and insurance for Priority Express International, as well as just Express. What does this mean for you? Our international shipping rates will still be high, but our experience over the past few days is that the quoted rates for Priority are about 25% lower than the Express rates. Since we are told we can track and insure the orders, we are experimenting with it, and hope it is a good solution for all concerned.

    MOMS, our charity for a long time now, is in financial difficulties. Donations have slowed to a trickle, and if things don’t turn around they may have to cancel their next trip. You may read more about them in their latest newsletter, and either donate directly through their site, or, if you choose to make your donation through our website, we will match your donation dollar for dollar. Thank you in advance for your support!


    RECOMMENDED APP

    Not OUR product, but a new essential oil app for phone, tablet, or computer. Nature’s Gift is in no way financially tied to the AromaSense App, but we think it’s a good, useful application. We love the flexibility of the “Full Access” version, which lets you edit descriptions, add new oils, even add new categories, enter your formulas, a wide range of uses. But if you DO want to experiment with the Basic version, there’s an easy upgrade path. We have a lot of friends who have been asking for something like this, well, here it is!


    OUR CLIENTS SAY

    Poison Ivy

    Cori Gallager wrote, “I used your German Chamomile CO2 dilution for an acute, and I mean SEVERELY acute outbreak of Poison Ivy on my face!!!. It didn’t even respond to steroid ointment and oral steroids from my allergist. I read a blog note on your website from someone about German Chamomile and tried it. Fifteen minutes later the itching stopped. A few hours later the swelling started to go down and two or three days later I have only minute discoloration. No scars or crusts, no seeping. The surrounding skin also benefitted and looks good. No reaction to the Chamomile.”

    When I wrote to asks Cori for permission to use her comments she suggested that I add that she has been a Registered Nurse for 40 years and has worked for the last 36 years at a large community hospital in New Jersey. She hopes fellow poison ivy and rash/inflammation sufferers get some relief! (She has also been a Nature’s Gift client since at least 2001!)

    Strained back?

    Lisa Mertz recently wrote:

    Marge — on Sunday, I tried lifting something way too heavy and strained my back. This is getting to be a recurrent theme. At least I didn’t have excruciating spasms this time. So I made trauma oil with calendula infused jojoba I made, St. John’s wort a friend infused, and arnica oil.

    Then I made a body butter with the whipped Shea and some beeswax. And I put the helichrysum-don in it with a little ginger and lavender. I LOVE that heli-don. I did take a few aspirins, but this blend really worked to resolve the acute stage in a couple of days!

    Do you remember that anti-inflammatories evidence-informed course I did? You had asked me about possibly presenting at a conference. Now, I’m in the process of putting it online. It’ll be continuing ed for massage therapists but anyone can take it. I’ll let you know when it’s ready.
    Take care. Love that helichrysum.

    I can’t wait until Lisa’s course is available online. Yes, of course we will let you know where and when!

    Sciatica?

    Diana Montijo recently wrote,

    I recently placed an order for Plai. I ordered some Helichrysum from you in December and you sent me a sample of your Plai oil. At the time I happened to be ordering the helicrysum to help with sciatica pain my husband was experiencing. I made my own blend using Helichrysum, Plai, Kunzia and St. John's Wort. It has been very effective for providing temporary relief from pain and the Kunzia really helps break-up the knots in his muscles. Are there any other oils you could recommend that might be a good combination with what I am currently using for sciatica pain?

    And, she had put together the exact suggestions I would use. I might add either some ginger or black pepper for warming, but other than that, this is one of the most power combinations to relieve the pain of any sort of inflammation.

    Shingles?

    Late in July Maureen, from Martha's Vineyard ordered some bulk Ravensara Aromatica and four ounces of Calophyllum inophyllum, with the comment that she was hoping this would help, she had been using too low a dilution and had just read my recommendation (for a 25% dilution.) This week she wrote, “PS: Shingle formula (25% ravensara in callophyllum) was amazing. Still using. Rash never really went to full blown blisters. Saw improvement every day. Seemed miraculous; thanks so much!!” [Ah, we are all delighted that it helped!]

    Ticks?

    Kristen recommends this treatment following a tick bite or removal of a tick to prevent Lyme Disease.

    1/2 oz carrier oil
    5 drops Thyme Thujanol
    3 drops Hyssop Decumbens (Please note Mark Webb suggests Rosalina Oil as a substitute for the Hyssop Decumbens)
    8 drops Lavendula angustifolia

    Blend well. Apply to tick bite or immediately after removing a tick, to prevent infection and reduce inflammation.
