Designed by Opal therapists and prepared by hand on the premises, Opal Oils are used gratis in our treatment sessions and are available for take-home purchase. They are designed to suit a variety of needs and moods and a special selection of blends are prepared seasonally. We use high quality essential oils blended into a base of coconut.
At the beginning of each season, we select four Opal Oils from our vast catalog that we feel represent and celebrate nature’s changes. These Oils are designed to support well-being when minds and bodies feel the stress of shifting temperatures, as well as the inevitable challenges and celebrations each season can bring.
OPAL OILS FOR WINTER
sandalwood, vanilla, vetiver
The sacred oil of sandalwood has been prized for centuries for its meditative, spiritually uplifting qualities. Combined here with the balancing, grounding powers of vetiver and the pleasures of vanilla we have created a blend especially suited for taking time to focus inward and heal the psyche.
Banishing the Blahs
cypress, bergamot, lemongrass, eucalyptus, cedar, lemon
Developed to help move physical and energetic qualities that feel stuck and “blah” from time to time. Whether fluid, lymph, or stagnant chi, this blend is designed to get things moving again. Excellent post-illness.
spruce, juniper, myhrr, cypress, fir, cedar
Crisp winter mornings and endless stands of evergreens; a vision becomes an olfactory reality when these tree oils combine. Like a pure lungful of mountain air, this refreshing blend is uplifting and also is great for circulatory support.
vetiver, myrtle, lavender, oakmoss
A unique cough-n-cold blend using non-traditional oils. Oak moss in particular is called “Lungs of Oak” by Native Americans who use it for respiratory complaints. Lavender is restorative, anti-spasmotic and anti-microbial, while myrtle is a gentle expectorant, encouraging coughs to ease.
Aches, pains and muscle strains! We always have these blends on hand, and each has a different take on how to best address sore, tense muscles. They all are excellent choices to aid in tissue recovery and circulatory support.
cypress, rosemary, eucalyptus, grapefruit
Our original post-workout blend. Grapefruit and cypress have a restorative, toning effect on the veins, while rosemary strengthens arterial bloodflow. Circulation is thus greatly stimulated, flushing toxins from sore muscle tissue. As oxygen-rich blood works its healing magic on aching limbs, eucalyptus’ analgesic, camphoraceous quality relieves pain and encourages deep breathing. The more oxygen we take in, the faster we recover!
ravensara, camphor, lime, spearmint
Ravensara and camphor are not only great pain relieving oils, they also stimulate respiration which aids in muscle repair. Combined with lime and spearmint, this formula lifts the spirit and helps relieve spasms associated with over-training—or just pain and exhaustion from a WHOLE DAY playing softball!
bay laurel, lavender, chamomile, rosemary
Rosemary increases blood circulation, while lavender and chamomile help muscle tissue to relax and not spasm. The result? Well-oxygenated muscles that can recover faster post-workout. This blend also speaks to the heart of the athlete: rosemary strengthens self-identity, bay laurel inspires self-confidence and chamomile can assist in the acceptance of (temporary) limitations. We can hang in there and go the extra mile!
These are time-tested blends that have earned a permanent place on our shelves. From classic simples to favorite combinations, all of these Oils have exceptional healing qualities and smell heavenly.
frankincense, holy basil, camphor
Powerful analgesics are combined with the tension soothing qualities of frankincense. Used by contemplatives to slow down and deepen the breath, frankincense facilitates the return of oxygen to stressed tissues. Camphor and holy basil address muscle soreness and reduce inflammation.
Anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antifungal, antidepressant, antiseptic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, analgesic….and that’s just the first letter of the alphabet! Renowned for centuries as a healer, lavender has been used to treat so many conditions. It is almost always a wonderful choice to soothe tension and stress.
Excellent to nourish dry and sensitive skin. For some, it has a lovely nostalgic quality that lets the mind float away, suffused with gentle daydreams.
lavender, tea tree, eucalyptus, lemon, thyme, rosemary
Powerful immune system support for those times when it seems like everyone around you is getting sick. Supreme ant-bacterial power makes this blend a great friend to caretakers.
lavender, geranium, chamomile
Florals and aromatics calm, soothe and help prepare you to rest and sleep. Also useful when anxiety is suppressing your appetite. This blend was the first ever created at Opal and holds a very special place in our hearts.
ylang-ylang, bergamot, grapefruit, bitter orange
Developed for a client who found, through a lengthy, life-threatening illness, a path to greater self-awareness and spiritual growth. Illumination’s floral and citrus notes inspire a light heart and appreciation for being in the moment. A heart chakra opener, we often turn to this blend to help ease sorrow, grief, depression and harsh self-judgement.
helichrysum, frankincense, sandalwood
A long history of use in spiritual practice, equally at home in cathedrals and ashrams, these oils combine to soothe the nervous system, regulate breathing and promote a balanced state of mind, as well as easing tight muscles and tendons.
