MALAVARA UNCOVERED - why we use Baies Rose Essential Oil and what it can do for you

Our signature Lime Vetiver fragrance blends 10 incredible essential oils to create notes that are rich with the heritage of India. Here we look in-depth at one of these - Baies Rose- and discuss what it can do for you

  • Botanical Name           Schinus Molle
  • Aroma                          Peppery, smokey with fresh floral overtone
  • Aromatic Note             Middle
  • Uses                             Immune boosting, digestive support, energizes and reinvigorates

Did you know? Baies Rose is also known as Pink Peppercorn. The oil is produced by harvesting the pods from the evergreen Schinus Molle tree, native to the Peruvian Andes and a member of the cashew family. The berries are steam distilled.

What is it used for? Medicinally it is used to help the boost the immune system and circulation and relieve muscular pain given it is warming to the skin.

Will I like it? Aromatically it has an intense sweet-peppery aroma with a floral tone. It is a middle note and sits well with most other essential oils, where it adds a wonderful heat and spice to blends. Emotionally, Baies Rose Essential Oil acts as a stimulant and so is a great choice for a blend that promises to make you alert and energise you.

How can I use it? A Balm for Coughs and Sneezes: Rub this into your chest day and night to ease the symptoms of colds and coughs. In 20mls of a natural balm base (The Natural Base (makes 90 mls): 50ml of Jojoba Oil, 1 large tablespoon of cold pressed Coconut Oil, 2 large tablespoons of organic Bees Wax) mix:

  • 6 drops of Eucalyptus
  • 4 drops of Baies Rose
  • 2 drops of Peppermint
  • 2 drops of Rosemary
Melt all the ingredients together in a bain marie and allow to cool slightly before transferring to a jar (or jars) with a sealable lid, along with your essential oil blend. Allow the balm to cool and solidify fully before use. Store out of direct sunlight.

How can I make sure I am using Essential Oils safely?An understanding of the use of Essential Oils is key. Most people will never experience a negative reaction to essential oils but it can happen and there is nothing we can do to guarantee 100% safety. We have highlighted some guidelines to follow to help minimize the risk in a separate blog, but if you are regularly making your own blends for yourself, your family and others it is worth investing a copy of the “Essential Oil Safety” by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young for a greater understanding across 400 oils and over 200 constituents

And another thing..Baies Rose Essential Oil Safety Information: Tisserand and Young do not indicate any special precautions when using Baies Rose Oil. Read Tisserand and Young's full profile (see below) on this oil for the full lowdown
