When we first added Australian brand Lively Living in store a few years ago, they were famous for their Aroma Bloom Diffuser and had a handful of essential oil blends in their range. Fast forward to 2020 and they have a comprehensive aroma diffuser range using ultrasonic technology so the oils don't heat up. Their opening range of 5 different essential oil blends has now expanded to over 25 essential oil blends and a core range of 10 pure, undiluted essential oils that you can buy singly. Each one is a 100% pure single essential oil that has not been diluted in any kind of carrier oils and is suitable for using in an aroma diffuser or diluting in fractionated coconut oil or another natural carrier oil for safe topical application.
Single Organic Essential Oils in the Lively Living range
All the single essential oils in the Lively Living range are ACO certified oragnic except for their two variations of frankincense essential oil. Frankincense is next to impossible to source with organic certification. Their frankincense is 100% natural and 100% pure and has not been diluted with anything.
The Citrus Oils in the range are Lemon and Orange. Citrus essential oils are steam distilled from the rind and are suitable for diffusing and also great for their grease cutting power in natural cleaning products. They are both commonly used in homemade cleaning products and commercially produced natural cleaning products alike.
The Grass & Herb Oils in the range are Rosemary, Peppermint, Lemongrass and Vetiver. Lemongrass has a similar aroma profile to citrus oils as it has a fresh and clean aroma, but it made from steam distilling the lemongrass plant. Peppermint is the stronger mint over spearmint and is diffused for energy. It blends will with Lemon, Lavender and Rosemary, all of which are available as single oils in the Lively Living range. Rosemary is traditionally diffused to help with alertness and memory retention. Vetiver is the highest priced single oil in the range. It's a common oil in calming and grounding essential oil blends and is the primary oil in the Lively Living Sensitive Child Blend. It is this blends popularity that brought about bringing Vetiver in to the range as a single oil.
Please note that it is not appropriate to use any of these essential oils as a substitute for food in cooking. These oils are formulated and distilled for use in an aroma diffuser or safely diluted for topical application or used in cleaning products where suitable. They are not to be put in water to drink or added to food for flavour. You will get a much better result in cooking using actual lemon or rosemary (for example) and using an essential oil.
The Frankincense Oils are both different in origin and aroma profile. Boswella Serrata has a base of woody and earthy scents and has some fruity notes. It is the cheaper of the two frankincense options. Boswella Carterii is what most people define as frankincense. It has the same woody and earthy base with a calming and smooth tone and without the fruity notes. If you have no idea what frankincense smells like, if you have ever been inside a church that was diffusing incense in their service, there's a good chance they were using frankincense.
