Using whole plants (and the essential oils extracted from them) is often far more effective than using isolated compounds that are extracted, synthesized and then applied to the body in large quantity. Mother Earth's pharmacopoeia is quite incredible. This is an interesting read - enjoy. :) http://www.huffingtonpost.com/andrew-weil-md/why-plants-are-usually-be_b_785139.html

"One of the impressive lemongrass essential oil properties is, it acts as an antidepressant. It helps in boosting self-esteem, confidence level, and mental strength. Thus, lemongrass essential oil is popularly used for reducing depression and anxiety in the natural way." http://www.buzzle.com/articles/lemongrass-essential-oil-benefits.html

It's a huge tick of approval when Chiang Mai pharmacies are asking to stock our 100% Natural Insect Repellent. Why are they asking? Cos customers are asking for it and because they've checked up on our ingredients and our reputation and believe it's a great product. Insect Repellent available from today at Dechavechapan Pharmacy at Somphet Market - right next door to the 7/11 on Moon Muang, just down from the market entrance. Khun Jo-Jo and her Mom both speak excellent English and have a fabulous little store that sells almost anything you could ever need. :) Insect Repellent also available from Peera Pharmacy in Ratchadamnoen, just in from Tapae Gate.  http://arunthainatural.com

Always wondered about Ylang Ylang? 

Firstly, it's mostly pronounced "ee-lang-ee-lang" or "yee-lang-yee-lang" (yes, that's possibly our most FAQ) and yes, it grows and flowers prolifically across South East Asia - it is usually a smallish tree but can grow up to about 60 feet This image is from our own Arun Thai Natural garden.  The fragrance is heady and tropical and it's most popularly known for it's calming, balancing, euphoric and aphrodisiac qualities. It helps reduce blood pressure and helps with negative emotions. It is incredibly helpful for all kinds of nervous conditions from panic attacks and anxiety to shock. Arun Thai Natural blends it with Orange Essential Oil (a mood enhancer) to create our most popular fragrance by far.... sensual, romantic, balancing and mood enhancing. Available as an Aroma Body Oil in a rice-bran oil base (for superb all-over skin indulgence or for special massage) in a range of sizes and as an Aroma Body Mist for chemical-free fragrance spritzing. http://arunthainatural.com/ Shipping world-wide.
