Back to School With Mental Clarity


Back to school season is here! Time to get the children or yourself set for success with a little Essential Oil. Mental Clarity is a must have for focus and memory, who can’t use that? Rub a drop onto feet before putting on socks and shoes, and you will definitely notice the results. The cooling oil draws awareness and tingles to the feet. Returning back to school is nerve racking. Help ease those butterflies in the stomach with a drop of Lavender or Roman Chamomile Essential Oil on the shoulders. These two recipes are sure to help with focus and nerves for you or your children.

Focus and Memory

Apply or smell Mental Clarity. Place 1-3 drops on the palm and rub your hands together, bring the hands near your  or your child’s nose and inhale the scent with 3-5 long deep breaths. Rub excess on the back of the neck and chest. Always mix with a carrier oil on sensitive skin types which includes young children, when in doubt blend with a drop of carrier oil. Place 1-3 drops blended with a dash of carrier oil onto your or your child’s feet before school for all day lasting effects.

Butterflies in the Stomach

½ ounce carrier oil
5 drops Roman Chamomile
10 drops Lavender
Drip a dollop into your hands and rub them together, inhale the scent with 3-5 deep breaths. Rub the oil onto your  or your child’s belly in gentle circles to calm those butterflies.

Clarifying Honey Mask



This is my favorite mask for frequent use. It is gentle and moisturizing, great for blemishes and redness, and with the smoothing effects of raw honey.
This recipe is for a 4 oz jar.

• To protect clothing from drips, wrap a towel around your shoulders.
• Apply a thin layer all over face and neck, avoiding eye areas.
• Allow to sit for 10-20 minutes.
• To remove the mask use a warm damp cloth and rub in gentle circular motions.

Finish with your favorite hydrosol for toned, smooth, glowing skin.

All About Hydrosols





Hydrosols are the water coproduct produced during the distillation of essential oils. Every essential oil creates a hydrosol. A common misconception about hydrosols are that they are water with essential oils added to them. They are not, and have different properties than their essential oil counterparts.

To make Veriditas Lavender Hydrosol the Lavender flowers are grown in Certified Organic Soil by French Farmers in the Drome Valley. The flowers are harvested at maturity and immediately brought into the distillation chamber. The distillation process is a large screen filled with many pounds of Lavender over the top of heated water. The steam rises through the pressurized herbs becoming infused with Lavender and is channeled out through pipes to be cooled. When the steam condenses and cools, the essential oil separates by floating on the surface of the water, leaving us with Organic Lavender Hydrosol and Essential Oil. The hydrosol is then collected, UV filtered, and brought to you!

Hydrosols hydrate, tone and refresh your skin naturally. They are most commonly used as facial toners to firm and balance the complexion and can help to cool the skin on hot days or during hot flashes. Especially if kept in the refrigerator! They also make your hair super soft. Hydrosols are extremely gentle, so they are safe to use while pregnant or nursing and around babies and pets. You can also take them internally!

Hydrosols make great bases for blending your own sprays; for room spritzers, aftershave, bug repellent, linen refreshers, yoga mat cleaners, bathroom, room, or car freshening sprays, sun screens, and the list goes on.
