Help Me Have A Mindful Of Calm Range


Hello everybody and welcome back to our little HMOblog! Today, we are introducing the last of our BRAND NEW ranges that will be available from the 1st of December. The third range that we would like to share with you is our “help me feel fresh as a daisy” range, which I would love to tell you about.

Some of you may have already seen the room spray from this collection as it was featured in The Unibox’s November box as an exclusive product! I am sure you will be able to read all about the product on their website and their social medias as well as from their lovely subscribers. We have received some lovely feedback from everybody who has tried it so far so we are very excited for it to be available to everybody from December!

So, why did we create this scent? Firstly, mindfulness is something that is very current in both mine and my Mum’s life. Not only do I incorporate mindfulness into my daily routine but my Mum, Linda, is in the middle of her mindfulness training to become a mindfulness coach. Taking a few seconds, minutes or even an hour out of your day to take a breath, regain control of your thoughts is incredibly important and something that everybody should do. I like to do 10 minutes of mindfulness when I am lying in bed before I go to sleep. Yes, I don’t normally make it to the 10 minute mark without snoring my head off but if I do, it makes me feel so incredibly relaxed and my quality of sleep is immensely better. This range was created with mindfulness and meditation in mind. We have blended frankincense, geranium bourbon and lavender together to bring tranquillity and harmony into your life. Something that we all need.

So, a little bit about the essential oils we have used:


Used to help ease panic attacks, anxiety and stress, Frankincense is THE oil to aid meditation and relaxation. It will ease a troubled mind. In massage Frankincense is wonderful to fight stretch marks as it is a rejuvenating oil, it is truly effective to massage your stomach (in a clockwise direction) to bring a sense if calm during a time if panic.

Geranium Bourbon:

Is a balancing and regulating to your hormones, emotions, body and soul. It is a powerful immune booster, sinus cleanser and builds your resisted e to stress. Massage your abdomen (in a clockwise direction!) to ease period cramps.


One of the best known essential oil, it’s benefits are immense. We use this oil to calm, protect, boost your immune system and soothe muscular aches & pains. You will find Lavender in most our products as it is deeply therapeutic and beneficial to everyone.

As I mentioned in the last blog post, we have been working on these next three ranges for a very very very long time and to have their launch within touching distance is overwhelmingly exciting for us! Each collection has been developed by our own aromatherapist, Linda, who has been working with essential oils for over 25 years. You could say that she knows what she’s doing. If you would like to ask her anything at all about any of the collections and essential oils used then you can contact us on our social medias @helpmeorganics or via email: and she will be more than happy to answer your questions. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new products and, don’t worry, the wait is nearly over.

Organic Essential Oils vs Synthetic Fragrances

We are committed to using pure essential oils in our products as we feel that it is vital that everything we smell, apply to our bodies or bathe with must be natural, as organic as possible and therapeutically active.

It is possible for synthetic oils to be made so well they have almost exactly the same smell as the pure natural product,  however what they lack are the properties of the natural product, as the life force making the natural essential oil effective is not present. During production and usage,  synthetic oils give off harmful chemicals and are often tested on animals which we are 100% against.

Essential oils are made from the flowers, leaves, resins, barks of trees,  they are harvested in many ways. Most essential oils are made by steam extraction,  the oils go one way and “hydrolat”, which is floral water containing the therapeutic benefits of the flower, go another. We use the hydrolat in our products as this is an active base.

What is an essential oil
Essential oils are odorous pure plant essence,  they are complex chemical compounds produced by photosynthesis obtained from the plant by either steam distillation, maceration, hand expression or solvent extraction.
Essential oils have a consistency more like water than any other type of oil, they do not have a greasy feel and are usually thinner than oils. Aromatherapists use essential oils in their “mixed state”, called Terpenoid,  because terpene are the chemical constituent present in the greatest quantity in the oil.

A lady, Mme Marguerite Maury,  was the first person to compare essential oils to human hormones, she said essential oils were like plant hormones, this fact has since been confirmed by scientific research.

Almost all essential oils are antiseptic and antibacterial, others being antiviral and antifungal. Some oils will stimulate and regenerate while others can sedate and calm the body and mind. One essential oil can have many properties, such as Lavender with approximately 70 properties, but it is very rare that many properties of an oil would be required at once, and like hormones in the body, essential oils seem to target the specific area required.

Organic versus Non organic essential oils
We need to look after our soil. Years of applying artificial fertiliser and pesticides have taken their toll on the structure and substance of our soil. As many ancient hedgerows have been removed to make way for bigger fields, this has caused a huge problem with wind erosion. Native insects including bees are being affected by pesticides sprayed on crops and plants and it is for this reason that we must, as much as possible, use organic methods to produce our food.  Unfortunately in this World,  it is consumer power which makes the change to organic farming and the production of essential oils is no different.  We source organic raw materials and essential oils as much as we can for the simple reason, using organic ingredients are kinder for us to use, kinder for the environment and kinder for our bees, butterflies and other native animals and insects.  We must take care of our lovely planet so let’s make a stand.
