Revive Essential Oil Blend - Arbonne Holiday 2014

I am finding myself in a world of new fascinatin with Essential Oils.

Last year Arbonne released a trio of blends for the holidays, but I didn't appreciate them for what they were. I plan to analyze the essential oils in the Scents of Renewal Aromatherapy Gift Set. Now if only Arbonne would release a diffuser with the Arbonne logo!
For a much faster read, I will describe the three key oils in each blend. For REVIVE, key oils include
How Does Neroli Essential Oil Work?
Revive is diffused with several carrier oils, including Sweet Almond Oil, which allows it to be used safely for transdermal application. All essential oils used by Arbonne are steam distilled from the purest of raw sources.

Rosa damascena flower oil, Neroli (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) flower oil, rose geranium (Pelargonium graveolens).

NCBI/National Institute of Heatlh publishes a very interesting research abstract on 
Rosa damascena mill L., known as Gole Mohammadi in is one of the most important species of Rosaceae family flowers. R. damascena is an ornamental plant and beside perfuming effect, several pharmacological properties including anti-HIV, antibacterial, antioxidant, antitussive, hypnotic, antidiabetic, and relaxant effect on tracheal chains have been reported for this plant. ...Because of the low oil content in R. damascena and the lack of natural and synthetic substitutes, essential rose oil is one of the most expensive ones in the world markets

potent inhibitor of α-glucosidase enzyme (). Therefore, anti-diabetic effect

Neroli (Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (orange) flower oil has been  long used in aromatherapy. It is said to offer a variety of benefits for mental and physical health.
According to an article found at About Health, Neroli oil is said to help 
- reduce anxiety and stress (perfect for the holidays!) . 
- beneficial for colds, headaches, high blood pressure and anti-inflammatory.
NCBI reports are similar, the present randomized controlled trial showed that inhalation of neroli oil by postmenopausal women improved their quality of life related to:
- menopausal symptoms, increased sexual desire
- reduced blood pressure
- stimulate the endocrine system. 
These findings indicate that neroli oil can be used to relieve various symptoms related to menopause.
In aromatherapy, inhaling the aroma of neroli essential oil (or absorbing neroli essential oil through the skin) is thought to transmit messages to a brain region involved in controlling emotions. Known as the limbic system, this brain region also influences the nervous system. Aromatherapy proponents suggest that essential oils may affect a number of biological factors, including heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, and immune function.

Rose-scented geranium (Pelargonium graveolens L’Hér.), which is used in traditional Tunisian folk medicine for the treatment of hyperglycaemia, is widely known as one of the medicinal herbs with the highest antioxidant activity.
It suggests that administration of essential oil of P. graveolens may be helpful in the prevention of diabetic complications associated with oxidative stress. Our results, therefore, suggest that the rose-scented geranium could be used as a safe alternative antihyperglycemic drug for diabetic patients.

Our rose geranium essential oil is extracted from the plant Pelargonium graveolens of the Geraniaceae family and has a rosier smell than that of its cousin - Pelargonium odorantissimum, which is more the commonly known geranium essential oil and has a more wild "lemon-apple" smell.
Rose geranium oil has a balancing effect on the nervous system and relieves depression and anxiety, while lifting the spirits and making the world an easier place to live in. It has a balancing effect on the adrenal cortex and is great for relieving stress and stimulates the immune system.
It has a general diuretic effect on the body and balances the water systems in the body, correcting any poor elimination of water and waste material. It is useful for treating jaundice, gall stones and can also be used for restraining nose bleeds and other hemorrhaging.
On the skin, rose geranium oil helps to balance the secretion of sebum and clears sluggish and oily skins, while the antiseptic and cicatrisant properties make this oil an effective aid to help with burns, wounds, ulcers and other skin problems.
