Essential Oils - Why all the fuss?
Essential oils are often underrated - really, how can something that smells so naturally divine, have so many other benefits that are so incredibly pure and powerful?
Derived purely from plants, essential oils have a multitude of benefits from relieving physical illnesses, stress and anxiety through to providing a safe, anti-bacterial addition to you keeping your home clean and your family safe from creepy crawlies.
THIS is exactly why we are obsessed with them and drench our products with the essentials family.
Produced using distillation, essential oils create an incredibly concentrated and powerful product. At YOURS, we use essential oils for a variety of reasons within our products embracing the qualities within each plant type.
When we inhale aromas, scent molecules travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the emotional centre of the brain. This is the good stuff that can make all the difference to our mental wellbeing which is an absolute bonus when we’re cleaning with products that smell incredible and make us feel good too.
YOURS signature scents combine to create powerful cleaning products that smell absolutely sublime. These three powerful duos, saturated with essential oils are our Holy Trinity blends that we pack into our products for you -
Lemongrass & Lime
There isn’t much that lime essential oil doesn’t do - an antiseptic and antiviral disinfectant that is zesty and fresh. Lemongrass is the power play scent for energising and revitalising mood. This blend takes body and mind to the ultimate clean.
Cinnamon & Tangerine
Warm and musky, cinnamon is one of the oldest spices on earth and delivers strong anti-parasitic and anti-viral properties. Blended with tangerine this combination can help to relieve headaches and promote relaxation - infusing your home with the rich, exotic spice of lands far away.
Pine & Sweet Orange
A classic fragrance, pine evokes not only a true, traditional clean but also vivid Christmas loveliness. Orange - simply, sunshine in a bottle, summer time, warmth and cheer. A combination that is uplifting and joy enhancing.
In amongst these power players, we have a bountiful injection of some other super heroes of the essential oil family that take the YOURS range to the next level in the realm of eco-positive products.
Widely studied around the globe, tea tree oil is anti-bacterial, anti-septic and anti-inflammatory. It is so good for your skin and a natural insect repellent, talk about an overachiever!
Powerfully refreshing, this powerhouse eliminates bad odours and deters flies and other insects (which is why eucalyptus is a core ingredient in our super hero Fly Off Surface Cleaner). Eucalyptus is an effective and essential tool to deter flies, mosquitos and a lot of their mates.
As much as we humans love essential oils, what they do and how they smell - insects hate them, repelled in fact! At YOURS we never hold back on loading the good stuff into our products and our Insect Off and Fly Off are no exception, brimming with peppermint and eucalyptus oils ensuring they get the job done.
Our products are scientifically formulated to create specific and broad spectrum insect repellents to keep your family safe, both indoors and out - without the uninvited, creepy crawlies guests that are always up for a party.
