Wintry Mix Co-Distilled Essential Oil
Wintry Mix is a special, limited batch of co-distilled evergreens in a 2 ml sample-size dropper bottle. It is 100% pure essential oil, steam-distilled from branches of several locally-harvested species mixed in the same batch. The aroma is sweet, fruity, blue-green and musky all at once. Diffused, Wintry Mix has a pretty and uplifting aroma. Please see the detailed description below for a complete list of species.
Wintry Mix is a special co-distillation (multiple species distilled together) of needles/branches from the following no-spray landscape trimmings:
- Northern White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis)
- Fraser Fir (Abies fraseri)
- Common Juniper (Juniperus communis)
- Norway Spruce (Picea abies)
- Leyland Cypress (Cupressus x leylandii)
The largest proportion of the material for this co-distillation was Northern White Cedar (Thuja occidentalis), which contains Thujone. Thujone acts on the central nervous system as a GABA receptor blocker; likely causing synapses to fire more readily. Oils containing Thujone should be used carefully, not ingested, and any topical application should be diluted in a carrier oil. Diffusing oils that contain Thujone is safe for healthy bodies and they smell wonderful but we do not recommend this oil for use around people with a tendency for seizures, epilepsy, anxiety or sleeplessness.*
