Our Favourite Essential Oils

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years as remedies, skin therapies, and personal fragrances. The ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Indians, and Chinese all used concentrated oil from plants and herbs for a multitude of purposes. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit; they enhance both physical and emotional health. Each essential oil has an array of unique healing properties, uses, and effects. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits. Created in France, the birthplace of Aromatherapy, and blending exceptional ingredients sourced with care and caution around the world,‘1001 Remedies’ are very special. We are more than just a beauty product, our skincare products are ‘remedies! Here are our top five essential oils used in our products.


The health benefits of Citronella Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antibacterial, antidepressant, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. Used in a diffuser, vaporiser or oil burner, it is said that its relaxant qualities can help create a calming atmosphere. It has a soothing, cleansing and refreshing aroma. This beautiful essential oil is used in Magic Skin gel to help treat wounds and keep them clean.


Eucalyptus Essential Oil is widely used for its medicinal and industrial purposes. In its industrial applications, it is used in disinfectants, air fresheners and deodorizers. It is also a common ingredient in make-ups, perfumes, liniments, mouthwashes, soaps, deodorants, inhalant, lozenges and antiseptics. Eucalyptus Essential Oil is also known for its ability to treat a wide range of respiratory diseases such as cough, colds, asthma, sinusitis and bronchitis. This makes it the perfect air detoxifier which we use in our room spray Purair.


Myrrh essential oil is high in antioxidants to fight free radicals that can damage or destroy healthy cells. It can also destroy bacteria that can lead to acne or fungus that can cause red itchy skin. As an added benefit, it can also strengthen the hair roots helping to prevent hair loss. These are some of the reasons we use Myrrh in magic skin!


Lavender oil is known for its calming and relaxing properties, which may aid in alleviating insomnia, anxiety, depression, restlessness and stress. Due to its wide variety of uses, lavender oil may help with nearly all kinds of ailments, from pain to infections. Making essential oils part of your bedtime routine can also help train your mind to associate the specific scent with falling asleep. We use this relaxing oil in our goodnight balm to promote a restful night’s sleep.


‘’Cinnamon Oil’s’ health benefits include managing diabetes, alleviating menstrual pain, acting as perfume, fighting inflammation, fighting bacteria, supporting oral and dental health, preventing cancer, supporting respiratory health, managing pain, and repelling mosquito. It has a bittersweet smell that is very calming and also helps you unwind after a long day. Cinnamon essential oil boosts the functioning of our immune system. Our bodies are then more capable to deal with minor and major infections and diseases. It can even prevent auto-immune conditions in which the immune system of the body itself leads to the disease which is why we use it in Purair
