Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted on October 01, 2016 by Info info

So many of us have been affected by breast cancer in some way. All month long, we support those who are fighting breast cancer or have survived it, as well as honor those who have succumbed to this terrible disease. 

Our very own Jovan Van Drielle, President & CEO of Tijon Fragrance Lab & Boutique, is on a mission to change the world one heart at a time.

In the fall of 2015, following a life-changing adventure in France (that included a private tour of the Osmothèque in Versailles), Jovan noticed a small lump in her breast. Soon thereafter it was confirmed: Stage 3 breast cancer.

Jovan immediately thought to create something that could inspire other women in the same situation. And thus, the Tijon Heartlink necklace was born. A beautiful necklace - a talisman containing Colorado limestone that can be sprayed with a favorite fragrance every morning in order to boost one's spirits. The Heartlink necklace, available in a silver or gold finish, can slip easily over one's head, and every time you lift it to your nose, you are able to breathe in your favorite healing scent.

Since many are allergic to fragrance, especially while undergoing medical treatment, here Jovan discovered the perfect solution. You can easily apply your favorite essential oil to the absorbing stone (set inside the necklace) and totally experience a healing scent comforting you all day long.

Tijon's Heartlink necklaces: linking hearts and scent memory to comfort and heal.

Essential Oil of the Week: Bergamot

Posted on November 19, 2014 by Emily Villanueva
Bergamot is one of the most popular oils in the fragrance industry. It is derived from the fruit peel or rind of the bergamot fruit, which is actually inedible. It is in the citrus family of scents, but is a tinge more spicy and floral than the orange, lemon, or grapefruit. It is considered one of the "all-important" top notes in perfumes and colognes, and was considered a trendy personal fragrance during the Napoleonic times.
Italy and Mediterranean countries are the biggest producers of bergamot. It is thought that Columbus found the bergamot tree in the Canary Islands and brought it back to Italy. Bergamot has many household and culinary uses; for example, it is the reason for Earl Grey Tea's distinct flavor (black tea + bergamot essential oil = Early Grey Tea)! It is also a popular air freshener and potpourri ingredient, and used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to assist the flow of vital energy. 
Medicinally, it has been documented to fight heartburn, upset stomachs, digestive issues, sleeplessness, and oily or troubled skin. It is also purportedly great for those suffering from depression and anxiety too, as its scent is simultaneously relaxing and uplifting.

Essential Oil of the Week: Benzoin Styrax

Posted on November 01, 2014 by Emily Villanueva

Benzoin oil has a sweet, warm and vanilla-like aroma and is golden brown in color, with a treacle-like viscosity.

The essential oil is extracted from the Styrax Benzoin tree, which is from Java, Sumatra and Thailand and grows to 8 meters (20 feet). Deep incisions are made in the trunk of the tree, from which the grayish colored sap exudes. When the resinous lump becomes hard and brittle, it is collected from the bark.

Benzoin, also known as gum Benjamin, is one of the classic ingredients of incense. In ancient civilizations it was used in fumigation and it is also an ingredient of 'Friar's balsam', an aid to respiratory problems. It is also used as a fixative in the perfume industry.

The therapeutic properties of benzoin oil include the following; antiseptic, anti-depressant, astringent, anti-inflammatory, carminative, cordial, deodorant, diuretic, expectorant, sedative and vulnerary.

Benzoin oil's greatest benefit lies in that it has a calming effect on the nervous and digestive systems, a warming effect on circulation problems and a toning effect on the respiratory tract.

It furthermore boosts the pancreas, which in turns helps digestion, and is thought to be involved in controlling blood sugar, which makes it valuable for sufferers of diabetes.

The effect it has on the skin is to improve elasticity, helping cracked skin, while aiding the healing of sores and wounds and at the same time reducing redness, irritation and itching.
