This month’s Oil of the Month comes from the remote Himalayan mountains of Nepal. Although there are hundreds of varieties of Rhododendrons, this is the only variety that is non-toxic and the only one that can be distilled. The plant material from this very special plant has been known to be used by mountain climbers as a tea to help with their endurance.
Rhododendron Rhododendron anthopogon is a beautifully soft, smooth scented essential oil and for me, it was love at first breath. It is good for issues such as tight and sore muscles and swelling. It is amazing for support to our immune system and for emotional support as well. It helps with congestion, respiratory issues, and tickly throats. It would go well in a diffuser to fight off seasonal threats.
It may be beautiful, but it’s not lazy! It also knows how to help around the house. It would be good in cleaning products and self-care products as well. You could make a DIY household cleaner or add to a shampoo, soap or body wash as well. It’s an essential oil with a cooling and moisturizing effect.
As I smelled Rhododendron, I could tell why it’s said that it can strengthen us emotionally and even give us courage. It can help with worry and sadness.
Rhododendron is a special treat and we hope you will reap the benefits of this essential oil.
