Better than a Bouquet of Flowers



Here at LeRêve, we love receiving flowers – what girl doesn’t? But we love the gift of essential oils even more!


Those valentine flowers will look and smell pretty for about a week… A single bottle of Pure Essential Oil will not only last longer but smells stronger and offers a myriad of therapeutic benefits that the bunch of flowers could never offer (no matter how much you pay for them at the florist).

Essential oils are derived from herbs, fruits, trees and flowers. They are the lifeforce of plants; highly concentrated and potent 100% natural chemical compounds. Extracting the oil is a very difficult and time-consuming process. Huge volumes of plants are needed.


Did you know that it takes between 2000 and 3000 kilograms of rose petals just to produce a single litre of rose oil?



That’s why you can’t purchase Rose Pure Essential Oil in one litre bottles – you’d have to sell your house to afford it (hey it might be worth it)!

Let’s look at the LeRêve range of Floral Pure Essential Oils from our Mix Your Own range and list some of their properties and benefits.



Botanical name – Rosa damascene

Rose has an intoxicating, floral and sweet aroma. A symbol of love and purity, it is calming and comforting, useful for helping bring relief during times of sleeplessness and stress. Of particular benefit to women, providing relief from period pain and some menopausal symptoms. Rose Oil improves peripheral circulation and helps to ease muscular aches and pains and the discomfort accompanying varicose veins. Offers relief from digestive discomfort and improves the appetite. Its moisturising qualities are beneficial for mature, dry skin and its soothing qualities help bring relief to symptoms associated with minor burns, eczema, dermatitis, mild psoriasis, mild sunburn and some allergies.


Botanical name – Anthemis nobilis

Chamomile is fruity, sweetish, herbaceous, and is traditionally valued for its cooling effect on fevers and its relaxing qualities. It has a calming effect that reduces tension and offers relief for mild insomnia and headaches. Topically it’s soothing for minor wounds and burns and is an excellent skin cleanser to assist with treating symptoms of mild acne, cold sores, dermatitis and eczema. Chamomile provides relief from period pain and some menopausal symptoms. Its warming qualities help reduce swelling and stiffness in joints, easing muscular pain and tightness and offering relief to aching limbs, especially if affected by varicose veins.


Botanical name – Lavendula angustifolia

Lavender has a unique, floral fragrance. The first oil to add to any collection, Lavender is soothing and calming, providing relief from mild migraines and headaches and improving sleeplessness. It offers relief from symptoms associated with menstrual cramps, nausea, colic, colds and flu, catarrh and congestion. Its warming qualities may aid with pain associated with varicose veins and aching joints. It’s beneficial as a first aid treatment for mild skin inflammations and irritation including mild sunburn. It also helps the skin to retain its softness and suppleness.


Botanical name – Pelargonium graveolens

Geranium has an intense, sweet fragrance with minty overtones. It's generally refreshing and can provide an energy boost. Warming qualities may provide temporary relief from mild rheumatic and arthritic pain. Geranium helps to sustain good peripheral blood circulation and controls some symptoms associated with menopause. A fantastic cleanser and moisturiser for the skin, it aids in the relief of some skin irritations associated with eczema and dermatitis and helps to maintain the skin's suppleness.


Botanical name – Cananga odorata

Ylang Ylang is intensely sweet, floral and sensual. Well known for its sensuous and arousing aroma, it is often used in romantic blends and potions. Ylang Ylang is generally comforting, helping soothe mild anxiety, tension and stress and overcoming sleeplessness and mild insomnia. It may provide relief from bronchial congestion and irritation. It’s a fantastic cleanser for oily skin and hair, and also helps prevent dandruff.


So, it is obvious! Our beautiful range of floral Pure Essential Oils not only smells stronger and lasts longer but also offers more benefits than those colour dyed roses wrapped in fancy paper! This Valentine’s day consider the gift that will make you or your partner smile again, and again, and again….
