Let’s not beat around the bush here folks, we all know that when it comes to Organic Essential Oils, you get what you pay for. For example, if you are planning on running a diffuser on a regular basis, you may be tempted to buy as low grade & inexpensively as possible because you’re probably going through a lot of oil. Diffusing is great for filling an entire space quickly with your favorite scent, however, if you are using it for aromatherapy purposes, you are going to want much higher quality oils… and that, dear ones, is going to get extremely expensive.
Likewise, we don’t necessarily always want or need an entire large space filled with diffused oil or oil landing on every object in the room.
Do I really want oil landing on my animals, laptop, big screen or favorite artwork? More often, we have a specific purpose behind our choice when utilizing our oils. To increase mental clarity and put a pep in our step if we’re working from home (hellooo…), to soothe our wee ones or calm our creative child with ADD/ADHD enough to focus or take a nap, to help us sleep at night, to calm, ground and center ourselves during meditation or to simply have a room smell divine when our company arrives,… you know what I’m saying here. It’s also really important to realize that the membrane in our nasal canal is extremely sensitive, therefore the quality of oil we are inhaling makes a difference in our health. And let’s be real, how many of us are pros at multitasking and looking for the things we use on the daily to have multiple benefits as well?? Well friend, welcome to AromaMisting!!! Spraying essential oils can be so luxurious.
Two questions that we are asked on a regular basis are, “What is essential oil used for?” and “How do you use essential oil mist?”
The use of Organic Essential Oils for aromatherapeutic and medicinal purposes has been around for thousands of years. Those seeking homeopathic and organic alternatives for everything from skincare to migraine headaches are utilizing Mother Nature’s gift of Organic Essential Oils in a multitude of ways, because they help in a multitude of ways! Talk about multitasking!
There are essential oils which aid via oral ingestion, topically through permeation of the skin, via inhalation, and those which are extremely effective organic alternatives to use around the home. With the endless uses these oils offer, some have fallen so in love with them that they have chosen to devote their lives to learning about the countless herbs, flowers, trees, fruits, resins, etc., which provide these divine oils for our health, healing, beauty regimens, and our mental and emotional well-being. Enter Ginger Ravencroft. With over 25 years of experience and research, Ginger realized that there was a need for a new and more conservative way to ‘diffuse’ these precious oils; That is why a quarter century ago, she created the AromaMist™, an alternative method of actually accomplishing the purpose of why we diffuse, in a more affordable and conservative way and offering a plethora of other benefits at the same time! Spraying the face, spraying specific areas of our home, spraying the body with essential oils is such a gift. The difference between aromatherapy and essential oils is that aromatherapy is the use of essential oils.
So how exactly do you use an essential oil mist?
Let’s take Ashley, for example. She’s having a bout of insomnia and has not only a very expensive new Sony Master Series hanging in the room, but two cherished pieces of fine art. Rather than diffusing the entire room, she can simply spray some Good Night AromaMist™ on her face & neck, pillows, bedsheets, or nightie right after she lays down, and voila! Good Night AromaMist is a blend of several meticulously chosen Organic Essential Oils, proven to not only help you fall asleep, but stay asleep!
We all know that Organic Essential Oil of Lavender is famous for helping to relax and aid in falling asleep. Studies have shown that Lavender is an anxiolytic (an anxiety reliever), and works as a sedative to bring about relaxation and sleep, while also improving sleep quality. The Roman Chamomile promotes a sense of calm and relaxation while also actually inducing sleep. In fact, a sleep study showed how this extract lowers stress hormones & the hypnotic activity is similar to the effects of benzodiazepines (think Xanax and Ativan), but minus the risk of dependency or side effects!
Okay. Let’s say you’re ready to go to bed, but not ready to go to sleep (wink,
wink!); you just hosted a dinner party with hubby and rather than dousing the entire gathering in aphrodisiacal pheromones and inviting that kind of party, you gently spritzed your own neck and wrists with some Aroma-Blue™ AromaMist at the end of the evening, and let the sheets fall where they may. Perfect for both sexes, this blend contains organic essential oils of Ylang Ylang (considered one of the most powerful of aphrodisiacs available), Cacao (known to increase pleasure and sexual performance), Sandalwood (increases libido, sexual responsiveness and stimulates endorphins), and Ginger (used to increase libido since ancient times and for adding a little zest to one’s love life). When users of this blend call or write to us, they say things like, “After smelling Aroma Blue on my lover, it brought our lovemaking to a whole other level!”, and “This blend of Ginger’s works so well I haven’t even opened my Victoria’s Secret drawer in months!!”
Another passion enhancing blend Ginger created is our Passion-Moving Forward AromaMist™. While this blend is perfect for date night as a very effective aphrodisiac, it was also made particularly for those moving through times of change or loss.
Seasons of transition occur for each one of us, and the healing properties of these oils can be immense. Spraying essential oils of this woodsy, earthy oil of Cedarwood encourages us to hold steady and persevere during challenging situations and helps reduce situational anxiety and depression. It's also known for giving one increased feelings of confidence and capability. The Frankincense is good for those feeling wounded or beaten up, while the Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and orange all work to bring you out of that dark place and lift the spirits. You can literally feel the love with these AromaMists.
Our most popular ‘Mood Mender’ is Elevation of Mind AromaMist™ Spraying the face with organic essential oil’s is such a delicious treat.
Diffusing at work may be a no-no, but if you’re feeling the need for some serious mental clarity and mood-mending, this blend may very well become your favorite pick-me-up, ever. Definitely one of our top sellers, Elevation of Mind is filled with a powerful and delicious blend of serotonin-producing oils. It gives you an ‘instant surge of joy’ with organic essential oil of Jasmine, known to not only clear brain fog, but also helps alleviate depression, fatigue, stress, anxiety, menstrual cramps, menopausal symptoms and more. Heavenly, the Frankincense aids in a myriad of ways, including calming the mind and easing anxiety. When you breathe in an essential oil, you are not just enjoying the scent; you are actually ingesting the quickly evaporating micro-particles into the part of your brain that controls our emotions. A study has shown that Frankincense actually improves memory retention, aids in mental focus and minimizing distractions. And the Rose Otto, oh the Rose! Known for centuries to relieve anxiety, depression and increase endorphins, research has also shown that Rose Oil stimulates the release of the chemical neurotransmitter dopamine, which affects many aspects of our behavior, physiological & psychological functions such as learning, motivation, heart rate, and mood. Bust out this magical AromaMist and Elevate Your Mind; close your eyes, spray your face several times while inhaling deeply, and you may never have another “rough day at the office” again!
Most of us are major fans of cleansing ourselves and our space by burning sage, but have you ever tried to do that at the office? Well, you can achieve the same effect without smoking everyone out with our Sage & Cedarwood AromaMist™. This blend is amazing for clearing negative energy. Whether you
need to cleanse and bless your yoga/meditation space or you are in a field such as medicine, psychiatry, or customer service, where you work with a lot of people and need a personal ‘clearing’ after an encounter, AromaMisting with this blend is like a taking a mental and emotional shower. A natural neurotonic, the essential oil of Sage calms the mind and eases the nerves while giving you a mental and emotional boost, while the Cedarwood helps with mental clarity and focus.
And speaking of having trouble staying focused (or even challenged with ADD/ADHD), if you struggle with anxiety, irritability and are in need of some serious grounding, both our Sage & Cedarwood AromaMist™ and our Ground-Center-Focus AromaMist™ are wonderful choices when you feel like you could use a long walk in the forest.
Studies have shown that inhaling Essential Oil of Cedarwood essential oil three times a day for 30 days led to a significant improvement in ADHD symptoms in children. Dr. Terry S. Friedmann explains, “When the essential oil is inhaled, the microdroplets are carried to the brain’s limbic system, which is that portion that is the processing center for reason, emotion, and smell, and to the hypothalamus, which is the hormone command center. The essential micro droplets are also carried to the lungs where they enter the circulatory system.”
The rare smokey cedarwood (think perfect campfire smell) in our Ground-Center-Focus blend has helped many people ease the symptoms of these conditions, as well as bring mental clarity and a feeling of being grounded and centered. It’s so beautiful to spray aromatherapy mists on our friends when they need help as well.
Those who are conscious enough to be clearing and cleansing our bodies and our spaces of negative energies sure don’t want our kitchens smelling like salmon or our laundry area like a stinky kitty box. Again, without having oil diffused on our food prep areas, toiletries or folded laundry, we can merrily Mist our way to those areas not only smelling divinely fresh, but thoroughly sanitized as well!
Ravenscroft Essentials Air Purify AromaMist™ “breathes life into a space with its gentle aroma”. Organic Essential Oils of Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Rosemary,
Lavender and Eucalyptus work together to actually kill (rather than mask) undesirable odors, viruses and bacteria. Each of the specifically chosen oils have antiviral, antiseptic, and antibacterial properties to cleanse and purify.
Air Purify is also wonderful to spray in and around your tent as an essential oil bug repellent. Using an organic aromatherapy repellent is a pleasure, unlike some of the most unpleasant smelling choices on the market.

Although we would not suggest using these Mists alone for sun protection for longer periods of exposure, it’s always better to be on the safer side! They can certainly boost your protection factor big time! In fact, it’s been said that Organic Essential Oil of Carrot Seed has an SPF of 28-40!

protection, the highly sought after oils in our Carrot Facial Mist reverses the aging process, brings emotional harmony and actually heals the skin from the inside out. You could say this blend is ‘24-Carrot Gold’!

Full of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial properties, this Facial Mist not only works wonders on your skin, the compounds in Carrot Seed Oil’s warm and earthy scent has also been shown to banish the blues. It stimulates brain and nerve function in a way that is refreshing while it helps diminish feelings of anxiety, stress, weakness, and fatigue. Keep a bottle in your purse to instantly lift your spirits and calm your mind as you love on your skin at the same time! Ginger’s favorite thing is to spray essential oil mists on the people she loves.
And speaking of lifting your mood and calming your mind while you heal your skin with the most precious essential oil on earth, you haven’t experienced the perfect blend of skincare with mood enhancement until you’ve gently sprayed your face with our sublime Lovely Rose AromaMist™
Ginger searched far and wide for the best of the best Organic Essential Oil of Rose, and put three of them, from three different continents, Morocco, Bulgaria and India in this absolutely divine blend. You want to spread some good vibes while you spoil your skin? Inhale deeply as you gently spray your face several times with Lovely Rose and it will literally raise your vibrational frequency. Spraying your friends face is such a beautiful lovely gift and bonding time to experience.
While it’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal properties help heal acne and other skin conditions, this gem oil is also one of the best options on the planet for anti-aging.
So while studies show how amazing Rose Oil is for relieving symptoms of anxiety and depression by producing serotonin and endorphins (feel-good juices), they also conclude that it is one of the best oils for skincare.
So now you’re ‘in the know’ about AromaMisting!! You can go ahead and splurge on obtaining the best possible oils because you will be conserving them through using them wisely (one bottle of AromaMist contains 550 sprays)! Instead of coating your electronics, carpet, artwork and your golden retriever with oil, you can reap the benefits of aromatherapy, skincare, organic sanitizing and more by misting yourself, your pillows, your toilet handle, or your yoga mat with Ravenscroft Escentials collection of AromaMists! And you will experience all of this joy and healing with the knowledge that you are supporting a true and local micro-business, created out of love, Love, and more LOVE!
