July Oil of the month- Rhododendron

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. Also, it is amazing for support to our immune system and for emotional support. It helps with congestion, respiratory issues, and tickly throats. This is a great oil for 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 as it is great in cleaning products. 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.

When you give Rhododendron a smell, it’s easy to tell why it’s great to 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.

    1. Mary Lou, everyone here is love with it too! If we get enough feedback like yours, we will offer it in our regular line.

  1. Thank you for the body wash recipe. I just ran out of the last one I made and was planning on making a new one this weekend. As stated above, I love getting that green envelope in the mail every month!

    1. Rose, let us know how you like the body wash. Sometimes I want to have my order shipped just so I can see a green envelope in my mailbox! 🙂

  2. I’m in LOVE with this oil. My daughter was keeping me awake by coughing in her bedroom down the hall. Nothing I tried worked for her. So I diffused 5 drops and immediately she stopped coughing. My son felt like he couldn’t breathe very well, tightness in his chest so I diffused 5 drops for him and by morning he was completely better. My husband tried it for his gout but it didn’t help him at all. But I’m amazed at how well it helps the respiratory system!

    1. We are so glad that you like it and have found it helpful! Since most know little about it, it’s good for all to here your results. Thank you 🙂

    1. What a thoughtful friend you are! Yes, I love it too and I hope PT does carry it in the future as well 🙂 Thanks!

  3. This has become one of my very favorite oils. My son has asthma symptoms and when we diffuse this oil for him he’s fine by the morning. It’s my go to for any respiratory problems. I hope it makes to into the regular line.
