- Java Indonesia the wonderful Island of Essential oils
Java the amazing island complex with great antiquity, the heart of the Indonesian nation and the most populous islands in the world with over than 140 million people. A beautiful mix of cultural heritage from different historical eras and colonies that shaped the diversity of the island. Hindu & Buddhist kingdoms, Muslim kingdoms & Dutch colonization. Java is a volcanic region, it contains more than 112 volcanoes, forty-five of which are active. The mountains form a spine, which runs east to west in addition to limestone ridges and lowlands. The Essential oils production is located in different parts of the Island West Java Patchouli, Clove, Nutmeg, Turpentine, Citronella, Ginger, Lemongrass, Vetiver, Cajuput, Kaffir Lime East Java Patchouli, Clove, Turpentine, Citronella, Ginger, Cananga, Cajuput, Fennel, Kaffir Lime Central Java Patchouli, Clove, Nutmeg, Turpentine, Citronella, Ginger, Lemongrass, Cananga, Cajuput, Fennel, Vetiver Citronella oil Java - Cymbopogon winterianus Indonesia supply 30 % of the world’s demand,the Citronella grass grow best in the slopes, around 100- 700 meters above sea levels, it needs a lot of moisture and good drainage to grow. The roots of the plant are trimmed and the plant is cut back to 3-5 cm from the base, the plant produces a better yield between 2-4 years of its life span The annual Production is around 1800 MT/ year and takes 3-4 hours distilled through steam distillation. Citronella is rich in Monoterpene alcohols like Geraniol,Citronellol which are well known for therapeutic actions like Anti-inflammatory&sedative. Citronella has been known for ages as a main ingredient in bug repellent products. My favorite blend for a bug repellent spray is: 10 drops Citronella oil 3 drops Geranium Oil 2 drops Lemon Grass oil 2 drops Lavender oil 2 drops Ceder wood oil 2 drops Eucalyptus Oil 30 ml ( 1fl oz ) Neem oil Soybean oil or Castor oil Cananga Oil – Cananga odorata var.macrophylla Cananga is one of my favorite oils, it is tropical tree which produces flowers almost identical to those of ylang ylang. The flower is also known as the “Holy flower” people in Indonesia are using it for weddings and funerals. The flowers are collected from the residential areas of East Java, and families have an average of 1-3 trees in their gardens To collect the flowers the collector climbs a tree with a bamboo basket to gently knock the yellow flower from the 50 ft high trees The annual Production is around 5 MT/ year and takes 10-12 hours to be distilled through steam distillation. Kaffir Lime oil - Citrus hystrix The annual Production is around 3 MT/ year and takes 3-4 hours distilled through steam distillation.

- Peppermint Oil (Mentha × piperita) in the U.S.
Peppermint is one of my favorite herbs and essential oil. Being born and raised in Egypt, mint is widely used in our Mediterranean diet; a fresh mint leaf in a cup of tea is our heavenly drink and fresh chopped mint leaves on our salads and marinades is a must, or the famous Egyptian lemon-mint cold drink, which become my neighbors' favorite drink here in USA. Peppermint was introduced to the U.S. in Massachusetts in the early 1800s. "The United States produces 70% of the world's supply of peppermint and spearmint, the majority of U.S. peppermint is cultivated in the Pacific Northwest. In 2017, 60,400 acres of land were designated for peppermint production, yielding approximately 4.228 million pounds of peppermint oil. Oregon leads the United States in production of peppermint, growing nearly 35% of the nation’s total. Peppermint is either planted in the late fall or in the spring, using specialty built mechanical planters Mint is harvested from late June to mid-August, m.int fields are generally left in for 3-5 years and replaced with another rotational crop (College of Agricultural Science Oregon university)." An acre of mint produces approximately 70 pounds of oil, remember that when you see the small bottle on the shelf and how powerful and concentrated the oil is. On the other hand, one drum of oil can be used to flavor about 5 million sticks of gum or about 400 thousand tubes of toothpaste. A major risk associated with peppermint farming is producing oil of poor quality; weeds harvested with the mint lower the quality of oil. The global market for peppermint oil is forecasted to reach USD $671 million by the end of 2022 due to the increase of usage in Aromatherapy. Here are the most known varieties grown in the United States: Peppermint - Yakima Yakima is the largest region for peppermint & spearmint oils in North America . Peppermint oil's characteristics in this region are: dry, sweet, and light. Menthofuran 0.75% - Menthone 25.24% - Menthol 39.47% Grown in: Yakima, Grant, Adams, Uamtilla (OR) Peppermint - Willamette Peppermint oil's characteristics in this region are: Sweet, floral, fruity, and clean Menthofuran 1.97% - Menthone 23.26 % - Menthol 39.95% Grown in: Marion - Linn, Lane (OR) Peppermint - Madras Peppermint oil's characteristics in this region are: Minty, smoky, and hay Menthofuran 1.51% - Menthone 20.32% - Menthol 43.95% Grown in: Wasco, Jefferson, Crook (OR) Peppermint - La Grande Peppermint oil's characteristics in this region are: Woody, green, and fresh Menthofuran 2.20% - Menthone 18.73% - Menthol 42.71% Grown in: Union, Baker (OR) Valley region located at the base of the blue mountain . Peppermint - Idaho Peppermint oil's characteristics in this region are: Herbal, sweet, and floral Menthofuran 3.15% - Menthone 22.08% - Menthol 39.93% Grown in: Adams, Gem canyin, Ada, Elmore, Owyhee, Twin falls (ID) Peppermint - Midwest Peppermint oil's characteristics in this region are: Earthy,sweet,heavy,mud Menthofuran 1.71% - Menthone 24.32% - menthol 37.78% Indiana - Michigan - Milwaukee This mint is growing in Muck soil and has distinct characteristics. Mint oil Adulteration Essential oil adulteration is a huge concern when it comes to Aromatherapy Synthetic adulteration is very common by adding synthetic menthol , that's why C 14 testing is essential , as a tool to screen “natural” peppermint oil for petrochemical-derived components. That's why buying from trusted distillers is a key factor in the supply chain.

Zohourat tea is well known in the middle east especially in the regions of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, and according to each region the ingredients differs. For years and years the tea blend was known as an ethnobotanical heritage that has passed from generations to generations, In some recipes the tea has more than 71 ingredients of which 41 ingredients are spices,36 ingredients are medicinal . As an Aromatherapist I learned how to check the botanical names of the plants , search their families and from there know the therapeutics properties and importance , it is always interesting to dig deep in the botanical knowledge and the history of the plants . Some of the famous blends of the tea contains the following ingredients Aloysia citrodora - lemon verbena Althaea damascena - Marshmallow Ammi majus- Bullwort or Bishops weed Astragalus Borago officinalis- Star flower Carum Carvi- Caraway Citrus medica- Citron Elaeagnus angustifolia - Persian olive Jasminum officinale- Jasmine Lavandula angustifolia- Lavender Matricarica chamomila - Chamomile Melissa officinalis- Lemon balm Mentha x piperita- Peppermint Pimpinella anisum- Anise Pinus brutia- Turkish pine Pistacia palaestina- Zaatar Prunus dulcis - Almonds Psidium guajava - Guava leaves Rosa x damascena - Rose Saccharum officinarum - Sugar cane roots Salvia fruticosa- Greek Sage Salvia officinalis- Sage Sambucus nigra- Elderberry yzygium aromaticum- Clove Ziziphus jujuba Mill - Jujube It was used for centuries in the middle east and is still used for home remedy medicinal properties ,to address and help with digestive, respiratory and nervous system (sedative) conditions. Of course drinking the tea in a coffee shop in Cairo was not that sophisticated with all the 71 one ingredients , my best friend Maha is my partner is discovering different drinks and foods from different cuisines, it is always a quest of knowledge , discovery and memories and so much fun In March 2020 and before everything was in lockdown I enjoyed a cup of Zohurat tea with Maha .

Aromatherapy consultations can be done in person, on the phone, or via e mail. I use my 20 years of Global experience with essential oils, and My 600 hours as a clinical certified Aromatherapist from NAHA ( National Association of Holistic Aromatherapist ) We believe that there is absolutely no condition whether it is physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual that cannot be helped by the Plants and Trees. Aromatherapy consultations or assessments typically include four steps: Holistic assessment and consultation Assessment review (done by the Aromatherapist) Aromatherapy product and design Follow up An aromatherapy consultation begins with the client filling out a detailed form covering the client’s holistic health history, conditions, reasons for seeking aromatherapy, application preferences, and other information. Following the consultation, the Aromatherapist creates a unique blend and product to address the client’s needs and/or intentions. The Essential Oil blends and products are researched fully and thoughtfully selected. They are designed to take into account the client’s needs and preferred method of application, the therapeutic attributes of both the essential oils and carriers (vegetable oils, butters, etc) and the best method of delivery for the specific product. What is Included ? Therapeutic aromatherapy blend included in the 1 hour session, for price please email us. The initial product is included in the price of the consultation and is mailed to the client. The aromatherapist will follow up with the client after two weeks by phone or email (client’s choice). During the follow-up we will determine whether or not the initial product is working for you. If not, we will provide one additional product with the necessary adjustments made, and then another follow-up in 2 weeks. Once we establish which product is working for you, refills can be purchased. Prices for refills will be assessed individually.
