Well-Scent Essential Oils Review

 

Well-Scent is one of my favorite brands of essential oils. Why? They are organic, wild-crafted and are often recommend by physicians for complex illnesses like Lyme Disease. Their blends are really unique and some are extremely targeted. You won't find anything quite like these unique blends elsewhere! 

 

In addition to having blends for physical ailments like Lyme Disease, pain, sinus congestion and detoxification they also have blends specifically for emotional support and a line of skin care and holistic dental care. 

 

I have four of their blends to share with you. I am proud to be an ambassador for Well-Scent. Some of these oils I purchased on my own and some were sent to me as PR samples. I love each one of them and highly recommend them.

 

Relieve. This blend is formulated for pain, arthritis and inflammation. It's a blend of Wintergreen, Thyme, Roman Chamomile, German Chamomile, Marjoram, Laurel, Clove and Jojoba oils. 

 

This blend can be used topically for really any type of pain of inflammation. I use it for headaches and migraines. I've only had to use it a few times, but each time I've used it I get nearly instant relief. Much more so than with only using peppermint oil. It smells predominately of wintergreen with a little extra sweetness. 

 

Balance.  This blend is a heavy hitter! It is formulated for Lyme disease, immune support, lymphatic support, can combat bio-films and support many internal organs. It is anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-parasitic. 

 

This blend can be used to help support any chronic or acute illness to boost immunity. It can also be used topically for skin rashes. I use this one topically when I'm having a rough day with vertigo, although I know many people who use this daily to combat chronic illness. 

 

It is a blend of Myrhh, Blod Orange, Cedarwood, Rosemary, Oregano, Frankincense, Vetiver and Jojoba Oil. It smells a bit woodsy, but not too strong and not offensive. 

 

Rejuvenate. This blend is one of my favorites! It supports liver detoxification and digestion. it is a blend of Fennel, Geranium, Carrot Seed Oil, Rosemary, Roman Chamomile, Blue Tansy, Helichrysum and Jojoba Oil. 

 

The scent of this blend is really hard to describe. I'd say I mainly detect an herbal, blue tansy vibe. 

 

This blend can be used to aid in liver detoxification and also digestion. It is really great to use before a colonic or sauna to increase the benefits of those detox methods. The reason I love this one is when I apply it topically over my liver I swear I can feel my liver wake up and start working better! It's like a double shot espresso to detox. 

 

Release. This blend is for circulation, lymphatics and detox. It is a blend of Laurel, Cypress, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. 

 

This one is great for deep lymphatic detoxification and sinus support. It can be used to help support lymphatic detox with chronic conditions like Lyme Disease and Mold Illness or even for acute illnesses like colds. I often use this in a detox bath or directly over lymph nodes. It smells a mostly like cypress and eucalyptus to me. 

Detox Methods / The Healthy Girl's Guide

 My absolute favorite (and easiest, less invasive, cheapest....the list goes on!) way to detox is through the skin. Since the skin is our largest organ, why not utilize it to push the toxins out? 

1. Sweat. Exercise is great, especially something like hot yoga which really makes you drip. 

2. Skin Brush. Skin brushing mobilized the lymphatic system and opens the pours for more effective sweating.

3. Detox Baths. Detox baths (baths with epsom salt) help pull toxins out through the pores. They're also super relaxing. Consider skin brushing first for a more effective bath. 

4. Far Infrared Sauna. These have literally changed my life. No exaggeration. Because the far infrared light penetrates so deeply into the body it helps mobilize the toxins deep in the fat cells. They work their way up and out through the pores in our sweat. Do you want a more in depth post about Far Infrared Sauna? 

5. Detox Supportive Nutrients.  These include Glutathione, NAC, Vitamin C, Silymarin.

6. Toxin Binders. Binders are another method of detox which have been so helpful for me. These include Activated Charcoal, Bentonite Clay, & Chlorophyll. 

As a reminder, just because something is natural & generally regarded as safe does not mean that it is safe for you. Please consult your healthcare practitioner prior to starting any detoxification routine.
