What Can Essential Oils Be Used For?

Modern essential oils are deemed to be far superior when compared to their older counterparts. This is due to the fact that hundreds of years ago, the ability to distil oil from a plant would have relied on environmental factors, whereas right now it’s possible to create the most beneficial environments for the distillation of oil from plants and herbs. Distillation works by placing a heated bowl of water under a freshly picked plant, before allowing the steam to envelope the stem, leaves and buds, to lift the oil away to where it can be stored separately for use at a later time. But what exactly can these oils be used for and why are they still as trusted as they are hundreds of years after they were first discovered? The use of an essential oil These days, plant oils can be used for a host of purposes. From consuming them orally to receive an immediate influx of antioxidants and health-enhancing properties, all the way to adding them to organic creams and applying them to the skin for a vitamin rich facial treatment. These oils are the most vital essences of a plant and as a result, they possess the greatest number of nutrients. Not all can be consumed however, as there are some plants that possess toxic properties. In these cases, it’s worth getting to know a little more about the properties of these types of compounds and whether they are safe for human use and consumption. For example, it can be entirely safe to harvest the oils from the tomato plant and use them in water for detoxing purposes, but the leaves contain harmful chemicals that can actually be poisonous to humans. This is why experts will only distil oil from the stems and buds. There are even poisonous plants that can be distilled in a way that allows their oil to become consumable and usable on the skin – but as is the case with most forms of herbalism and alchemy, it’s best to learn about the properties of a plant in its entirety before attempting to distil its properties yourself, or alternatively buy your essential oil from a reputable supplier.

T-Shirt Printing Design Ideas

Everyone in Australia has a right to follow a particular style and if yours just so happens to rely on your clothing, then more power to you! We understand more than most how tempting it can be to take a trip to your local retailer and pick up a few new shirts, but have you ever considered the potential of designing your own apparel and showing people what you are really all about? Custom t-shirts are a great way to do this. They’re suitable for all ages and they can be bought for about the same price as a similar item in store, but there’s no denying that the potential to personalise their look and feel from the ground up can be incredibly appealing. Now you might be wondering how you could even do this – well, there are plenty of personalised t-shirt printing companies in Sydney, as well as in Melbourne, and throughout Australia for that matter. Now that you know where to look, all that you’ll need is a little inspiration to turn your ideas into a reality. Here are a few exciting t-shirt printing design ideas to get you started! Less can sometimes be more How tempting would it be to take full advantage of a printing company by creating a design that features a gazillion different colours, tones and hues – and then having them print it onto your shirt? Sure, you will look unique (and no one will be able to deny it), but is that really the type of style that you want to go for? Instead, you could always use just a couple of colours, or even keep things monochrome. Less can be more – especially if done in the right way. A picture can say a thousand words How many times have you heard that before? It might be one of the most over-used phrases in the world, but boy does it hit home right now. Instead of detailing your life and hoping that it will fit onto a t-shirt design, why not go for a symbol, an icon, an image, or anything along those lines? You’ll likely find a great range of inspiring ideas on an actual t-shirt printing companies’ website; especially if you have a look through their design section. But words can also be appealing Now we know what you’re thinking… HYPOCRITES! But hear us out for a minute. Sure, photos and images can be a great way to express yourself, but what about the power of the written word? We’re not suggesting that you talk about your day in full detail; but perhaps you have a funny sentence that you’ve come up with, or maybe you like a particular quote, or have a nickname? These are the types of things that you could add to your own t-shirt and we have no doubt that they’ll end up looking just as unique and captivating as you intended. So, there you have it – a short selection of design ideas […]
