Some of the essential oils that were released by the fragrance oil company include lavender (lavandula angustifolia), peppermint (menthe piperita), and rosemary (rosemarinus officinalis).

Lavender essential oil, aptly called “The Scent of Youth” by the company, is known for its calming effects, while Peppermint, which was given the name “The Scent of Energy”, has the properties that help boost energy and concentration. Rosemary “The Scent of Memory” may be very helpful for college students who are having trouble with their schoolwork because it aids in mental expansion.

Other essential oils that were released in the line include eucalyptus (eucalptus radiata) “The Scent of Balance”, patchouli (pogostemon cablin) “The Scent of Tranquility”, and lemongrass (cymbopagon flexuosus) “The Scent of Zen”, among others. The combined health benefits of these essential oils can lead to a moisturized skin, better moods, and even an improved metabolism.

How to use essential oils

Much like fragrance oils, a lot of therapists, blogs, and people would recommend mixing drops of various flowers or plants either to each other, to milder carrier oils like coconut oil, and to other liquid substances like water. Mia Maison oils have been manufactured with the aim of increasing this versatility of their fragrances and essentials.

Mia Maison highly recommends adding a specific number of essential oil drops to medium like water and lotion for customers to produce their very own atomized, air purifiers, or skin moisturizers with longer lasting effects. Eucalyptus essential oil can actually be used alongside lavender or lemongrass as a natural, fragrant, and skin-mild insect repellant.

Mixing essential oils of similar properties, like eucalyptus and peppermint, are believed to enhance their respective effects and health benefits.

Here’s a handy guide in case you’d want to experiment.
