Unscented Gem Oils vs Essential Oils

We live in a world where many people suffer from scent sensitivities and more and more places are becoming scent-free. In response to this, people are looking for unscented products to use in their daily lives — everything from deodorant, to lotions, and even essential oils for their ailments.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are concentrated, aromatic liquids derived from plants and resins. They’ve been used for centuries in aromatherapy and traditional medicine and are typically what comes to mind when you think of a healing oil.

The advantage of essential oils is they’re readily available from big box stores, small independent health shops, and your favourite MLM consultant.

There are hundreds of scents and blends to choose from depending on what you need such as lavender to sleep, eucalyptus for congestion, or peppermint for headaches.

Disadvantages of Essential Oils

Essential oils are versatile and have many therapeutic benefits, but a major disadvantage is the fact that they’re all scented.

Many store-bought essential oils can also be low-quality, diluted with synthetic fragrances and carrier oils which can decrease their therapeutic and healing benefits.

Using gemstones and crystals for their healing properties

One way to get healing properties without scent is to carry gemstones and crystals on your person. Gemstones and crystals can be carried in your pocket, your purse, as a necklace/bracelet or even within your bra working within your magnetic field to receive their healing properties.

However, a disadvantage to carrying crystals and gemstones on your person is they can be heavy and bulky depending on how many you’re carrying around for that day. This can lead to heavy pockets, bruised thighs, and lumpy bras bulging out awkwardly with stones jammed in them.

It was because of this unwanted bulk and my quest for scent-free products that got me thinking of how I could incorporate the healing properties of gemstones and crystals into something that was more portable and remained scent-free.

Developing Unscented Gem Oils

Drawing on my knowledge from Melody Crystal Healing and my Robert Simmons crystal training, I thought about the elixirs we made, infusing water with the properties of crystals and I thought about how I could transfer that to a carrier oil instead.

I knew I needed a carrier oil that was not only certified organic and unscented, but living in Northwestern Ontario, it also needed the ability to freeze and thaw while retaining the healing properties of the crystals.

With the carrier oil chosen, it was time to start pulling on my knowledge of crystal properties in order to create blends to mimic carrying the individual stones and crystals on your person.

As new blends are created, I always test them against three groups of people — those that utterly believe in what I do, those who think it could work but are skeptical, and those who do not believe but humour me and test the oils anyway. When creating the blends, if the results are not consistent across all the groups then I keep tweaking the blend until they are.

Ways To Use Unscented Gem Oils

Unscented Gem Oils can be used in all the same ways that essential oils are used, enjoying all the benefits and healing properties of the gem oils without the downside of scented products.

  • Use in a sauna
  • Use in a diffuser
  • Mix with Epsom or Himalayan salts and use in a bath
  • Add 1-2 drops on your person
  • Add 1-2 drops to lava beads
  • Add 1-2 drops to wands
  • Add 1-2 drops to necklaces and other jewelry
  • Mix with essential oils to use at home if scents don’t bother you or loved ones

While some essential oils are marketed for internal use, we do not recommend ingesting any essential oils, or gem oils. Oils should always be for external use only.
