AQ NEWSLETTER DEC 2022

Greetings, Friends of the Queen!

We know we’ve been quiet for much of the year but we’ve just realised just how quickly the end of 2022 has crept up on us, to the point where Australia Post’s recommended Christmas cutoff dates for shipping to some areas is actually this week!

Due to the (neverending and awful) flooding occurring across many regions, shipping to WA in particular is being affected.

RECOMMENDED CUTOFFS FROM AROMA QUEEN for Christmas delivery to:
WA – 8th Dec
NT – 9th Dec
VIC / SA / QLD / TAS – 16th Dec
NSW – 19th Dec
 

Items shipped after these dates MAY still very well make it in time but if unsure, just place your order as early as you can. We are shipping daily until 19th Dec and always aim to have orders placed by midday shipped the SAME BUSINESS DAY. Tracking is sent via email which can be followed on www.auspost.com.au. Once shipped we’re of course unable to guarantee a delivery time as it’s in the hands of Aus Post, but they are already implementing additional services to keep up, and we are seeing most mail arriving nice and quickly.

GIFT ORDERS
We’re happy to ship directly to the recipient to speed things up for you – just place an order on our website as usual and choose SHIP TO ANOTHER ADDRESS – enter their address there. Add a note or send us a message after you’ve placed the order if you’d like us to leave out the invoice. You’ll still receive a copy via email, so make sure you enter YOUR email address, and not theirs!

To add a GIFT TAG to your order, just enter a note or send us a message with a short TO / FROM / TAG MESSAGE and we’ll pop a personalised tag in for you.

GIFT PACKS & IDEAS
If you’re stuck for ideas, have a browse of our
PACKS & KITS section for inspiration, which features gift packs and starter kits covering everything from AROMATHERAPY to INCENSE and SMUDGE, with kits to suit all budgets and tastes.

Frankincense & Myrrh make a great choice this time of year also – plus have the added benefits of being mellow and relaxing! Scroll to the bottom for a little bloggie on FRANKINCENSE. Waterfall effect BACKFLOW CONES & BURNERS are another great choice if you’re looking for unusual gifts – loads of cones and burners in stock.

If you’re searching for a gift for somebody with a specific taste, you can also SHOP BY SCENT on our website, seeing everything featuring that fragrance in the one place.

AQ OPEN OVER THE HOLIDAY SEASON AS ALWAYS!
We’ll be shipping daily until 19th Dec, and after that will be shipping every 2-3 days over the Christmas / New Year period – do allow extra time for anything you’ll be needing over January as the public holidays over the period do also slow things down a little.

Wishing all of our Friends of the Queen the very best for whatever season you choose to celebrate! We hope everyone has stayed safe during the ridiculous weather of 2022, and continue to do so. May 2023 be kind and wonderful for all.

NEW: CAR VENT DIFFUSERS

Now in LOTUS & TREE OF LIFE designs, $17.50 each, gift boxed inc 3 scent pads (extra pads available separately).

You can’t go past a CAR DIFFUSER to take your essential oils on the road with you – to scent your car with your favourite perfume, use oils to energise or concentrate on long drives, anti-germ oils during flu season, or even for oils like Peppermint to settle travel sickness or nausea – avoid oils with a sedative effect when driving (eg Lavender, Chamomile).

Just clip over the slats of your car vent and allow your aircon to circulate the oils for you. Plenty of suitable BLENDS are available also.

Auroshi

Our YIN-YANG KOI FISH backflow burner is one of our larger burners, for use with stunning ‘waterfall-effect’ BACKFLOW CONES. The cone sits at the top of the ‘well’, allowing the smoke to flow downwards into the level below, before finally pouring gracefully over the base, leaving a beautiful impression of the two koi fish swimming in misty water. $39.95 each.

Plenty more BACKFLOW BURNERS available – don’t forget to add a pack or two of Backflow Cones from our massive range. A great gift idea for somebody who ‘has everything’!

NEW: CHRISTMAS GIFT PACKS

We’ve just added some Christmas themed incense gift packs to our site – incense makes a thoughtful and unique gift idea, and doesn’t need to break the bank. Packs with a selection of incense and a suitable burner are also a great way to try out something new for yourself.

Our new ROPE INCENSE PACK includes a handmade burner dish and three scent combo options to choose from. There’s also plenty of STICK & CONE packs and the timely GOLD, FRANKINCENSE & MYRRH resin pack which substitutes the gold of Ambergris, a whale-derived scented oil that was likely the ‘gold’ referred to in the story of the Three Wise men, to Golden Amber which is much more animal friendly!

Find them in our GIFT PACKS section, along with plenty of Aromatherapy & Smudge kits.

FRANKINCENSE:
THE SCENT OF CHRISTMAS

Frankincense has been burned as incense for thousands of years, and has a linked symbolism to the Christmas season through its inclusion in the story of the Three Wise Men.

The natural RESIN / gum comes from a shrub grown in regions like Africa and the Middle East, and can be burned as pellets over charcoal discs or with a simple candle-warmed burner (pictured below).

If you’re looking for something simpler but with the purity of natural resins, Auroshikha’s all-natural RESIN STICKS are available in Frankincense, or a Frankincense & Myrrh Blend, merging pure resins with the ease of stick incense. Frankincense resin is also used to fragrance other forms of incense, or distilled to create an aromatic ESSENTIAL OIL.

As well as being used in religious settings, Frankincense is thought to elevate the mind and expand spiritual consciousness, making it perfect for meditation or general relaxation. It mixes well with other resins, in particular Myrrh, which adds a deeper balsamic note to Frankincense’s lighter ‘lemony’ scent.

FRANKINCENSE SCENTED GOODIES make a gorgeous gift or little ‘something’, or a great option for creating a stunning atmosphere when entertaining over the Summer season – don’t forget the added benefit that incense smoke also helps ward off insects and mosquitoes during outdoor get togethers.

As well as the natural Essential Oil, we stock Frankincense in everything from popular STICKS & CONES, to exotic and rare incense like Tibetan Dhoop, Nepalese Rope, Japanese Morning Star, Backflow Cones, and of course a wide selection of pure RESINS and GIFT PACKS to suit all budgets.

CHEMICAL FREE CLEANING:
MOULD & MILDEW

If you’re having trouble with mould at the moment, there are many essential oils & natural cleaning methods that can help.

Without question, CLOVE OIL (‘Oil of Cloves’) is the first oil to turn to – it helps both kill existing mould, as well as inhibit mould regrowth. We cover this in more detail (with plenty of other cleaning tips & recipes) in our CHEMICAL FREE CLEANING ‘DISCOVER’ PAGE.

GROUT: regularly wipe with bicarb/vinegar, and do a proper clean using a bicarb & water paste with a couple of drops of clove bud oil added to the mixture. Apply with an old toothbrush, allow to sit for a few minutes, scrub again and rinse – splash an extra drop of clove oil through the rinse water to help inhibit mould growth.

SILICONE: To treat light mould make a bicarb & water paste (add a drop or two of clove bud oil to help kill and inhibit mould growth) and scrub it over the area with a toothbrush. Repeat a few times if necessary.

SHOWER CURTAINS: To avoid mould, regularly wash on a cool cycle in your washing machine and add a drop of clove bud oil to the rinse water to help prevent mould occurring.

WASHING MACHINE MILDEW SMELL: Run an empty load with one cup of bicarb and two cups of vinegar added to the rinse cycle.

WALLS – MOULD PREVENTION: To help prevent mould on painted bathroom walls add a couple of drops of clove bud oil to the rinse water every time you clean.

WALLS – MOULD REMOVAL: Splash 5 drops of clove bud oil through half a bucket of water. Wipe over with a sponge and allow to dry – the clove will continue to kill the mould which you should be able to dust off after it has dried. To avoid brushing mould spores through the air, use a damp cloth to dust off after the clove mixture has dried.
