Flower Magic: White Hyacinth

Popped into Ikea to check the Xmas newbies and, of course, couldn't just pass their flower department without buying a couple of white hyacinths.

Some facts about white hyacinth

There're 3 popular species of the hyacinth - the litwinowwii, the transcaspicus and the orientalis. The hyacinth orientalis is the common garden hyacinth. Regardless of what species, the hyacinth is a toxic plant, so don't eat them

Beside of their loveliness, white hyacinths are known for their wonderful fragrance. That's why it's fondly used in an aromatherapy where essential oils are extracted from the white hyacinth. The oils have an intensified scent that helps soothe and calm nerves. 

For depressed persons, the white hyacinth oil can be used to battle depression. For the stressed, the aroma that these oils have is a de-stressor. For anyone who is tired physically and mentally, a soothing massage using the white hyacinth oil calms the body and mind.

(FI) Piipahdin Ikeassa katsastamassa joulu-uutuuksia enkä tietenkään pystynyt kulkemaan kukkaosaston ohi ilman että olisin ladonnut kärryyn muutaman valkoisen hyasintin.

Muutama fakta valkoisista hyasinteista

On olemassa 3 hyasinttilajiketta - litwinowwii, transcaspicus ja orientalis. Viimeksi mainittu on se meidän tuntema puutarhassa kasvava hyasintti. Lajikkeesta huolimatta, kaikki hyasintit ovat myrkyllisiä, joten älä syö niitä.

Valkoinen hyasintti tunnetaan paitsi kauneudestaan myös sen ihanasta tuoksusta. Tästä syystä sitä käytetään mielellään aromaterapiassa, jossa eteeriset öljyt uutetaan valkoisesta hyasintista. Öljyn tehostunut tuoksu auttaa rauhoittamaan sekä kehoa että mieltä.

Valkoisesta hyasintista uutettua öljyä käytetään masennusta vastaan. Tämä öljy toimii myös stressin helpottajana. Jos olet fyysisesti ja psyykkisesti väsynyt, hieronta hyasinttiöljyllä rauhoittaa .

This hydrating hand cream by Phi is my new favourite! It nourishes hands with shea butter, sour cherry seed oil and squalane oil. My hands feel so silky. And the scent is, of course, super lovely!

ps. Squalane oil: A saturated oil. It's formed when squalane undergoes hydrogeneration processing, which turns it into a stable, fully saturated oil with a long shelf life.

A bit more about Phi here!


~~~~~

Tämä kosteuttava käsivoide Phi'ltä on uusi suosikkini! Sheavoi, hapankirsikan siemenöljy sekä skvalaani-öljy ravitsevat käsien ihon. Iho tuntuu niin silkkiseltä. Ja voiteen tuoksu on tietenkin superihana!

ps. Skvalaani-öljy: tyydyttynyt öljy. Se muodostuu kun squalane käy läpi hydrogenointiprosessin, joka muuttaa sen stabiiliksi täysin tyydyttyneeksi öljyksi, jolla on pitkä säilyvyys.

  6. White Hyacinths are very pretty and do have a wonderful fragrance. I've never used white hyacinth oil medicinally myself but it sounds great. I must contact my oil supplier and see if they have some as I would love to try it for myself.
