Posted by RainShadow Labs on 12/11/2013 to Oils
Blue Tansy Essential Oil (also known as Moroccan Chamomile) is a highly curative oil. The word tansy comes from the Greek word “Athanaton” meaning “immortal” because Blue Tansy has real tissue regenerating abilities! Though it’s light, botanic aroma makes it lovely for a subtle personal scent, the real power of this deep blue distillation is in its medicinal effectiveness.

At RainShadow Labs, we’d like to tell you a story about Black Pepper Essential Oil.  Long ago, when Europe was still young, there were no local spices available to Europeans. All spices, including black pepper, had to come from Asia and beyond.  All spices were popular in Europe, but it is said that the culinary, healing and uplifting benefits of black pepper were so sought after that the French, Spanish and Dutch started wars over it! Today black pepper isn’t quite so difficult to get a hold of, but its power is entrancing nonetheless!

The Silky Touch: DIY Essential Oil Scrubs for Dry Hands

Posted by RainShadow Labs on 12/6/2013 to Skin Care

Dry hands are so uncomfortable.  They don’t have the sensitivity of smooth, moisturized hands and they don’t feel good to the touch.  Did you know that researchers at the University of Miami scientifically found that human touch slows heart rate, lowers blood pressure, reduces stress and puts one in a state that is relaxed but more attentive? Creamy, velvety hands are ideal for this kind of touch!


One of the best ways to keep your hands soft and nourished during the dry winter season is to use a DIY scrub with essential oils.  Scrubs keep hands looking lovely by removing the dry skin build up.  They help hands stay moisturized by revealing a fresh layer of absorbent skin.  They smell fantastic and are a total at-home-spa-treatment!  Best of all, making your own scrub to combat winter dryness is as easy as 1, 2 and 3!
