Ask Your Aromatherapist: What’s your secret weapon for seasonal allergies?
Keep it on the down-low (it is my secret weapon, after all), but I personally use helichrysum. This super-powerful anti-inflammatory is a key ingredient in our Breathe Easy blend, and the best part about helichrysum is that a little bit goes a long way.

Orange in All Its Forms

Orange in All Its Forms
An orange by any other name would, indeed, smell just as sweet… although each different form of orange essential oil, and the oils derived from the different parts of this aromatic tree, smell a bit different — and each boasts its own unique properties and benefits!

The Oils We Love to Hate: Patchouli, Geranium, Ylang Ylang and Fennel

At The Apothecary, we can’t pick favourites — at least not officially. We know that every essential oil has its place and its known benefits, and we value each of them for what they are. However, off the record (until now), there are a few oils that are fairly contentious among our staff. We know that these same oils are divisive among our customers as well. We’re talking specifically about patchouli, geranium, ylang ylang and fennel, and we know that with each of these, you either love it or hate it.
