Happy Thanksgiving! Here at Inshanti, we’re looking forward to kicking off the holiday happy and healthy (not to mention full of turkey and pumpkin pie!). If you feel the same, we’re delighted to feature some of our favorites to promote health and wellness – because no one has time for illness, dry skin, or muscle and joint pain when there’s turkey to eat and shopping to do!

Soothe Your Skin
Do chilly temps and the dry heat of the season wreak havoc on your skin? Combining the soothing power of Inshanti’s pure and unrefined shea butter with the rejuvenating citrus aroma of sweet orange essential oil, Inshanti’s Succulent Orange Whipped Shea is highly penetrating and deeply nourishing – perfect for healing winter skin. This butter is especially powerful because Inshanti’s shea butter is whipped with jojoba, vitamin E and raw shea crafted from seeds of wild shea trees scattered throughout the fields and forests of the wooded savanna in Central and Northern Togo. Apply as needed.
Ease Your Muscles
Dreading the freezing temps on the horizon, not to mention impending snow, because of achy muscles and circulation issues? Say no more – it may be chilly outside, but at Inshanti, we bring the warmth of the summer sun with our Hot Lava™ Warming Oil, which combines the natural heat of seven different essential oils, including cayenne, black pepper, clove and ginger, with jojoba oil. Perfect to warm up muscles, increase circulation, and alleviate the pains of arthritis or rheumatism, massage into affected areas as needed (but keep away from the eyes and notes – that cayenne pepper will sting!).
Or, try the therapeutic powers of Inshanti Nutmeg essential oil. Famous for its spicy aroma, nutmeg is also celebrated for its ability to relieve indigestion and digestive disorders as well as ease muscle pain and joint inflammation. Mix with a carrier oil and apply to the belly for relief from gas, bloating, diarrhea and constipation, or soothe onto painful and inflamed joints and muscles to release inflammation and promote healing.
Boost Your Immunity
Has anyone noticed that cold, flu, and allergy season is especially bad this autumn? Protect yourself and your loved ones this November with the power of plants!
Who doesn’t love an immune boost while enjoying the soothing power of a hot shower or bath? Try our Jumpstart Sailor Soap, a synergistic blend of coconut oil, Himalayan pink salt, charcoal powder and three different Inshanti Pure Essential oils known for their antimicrobial properties. “Jumpstart” your immune system by lathering up with this soap when you start feeling the tickles beginning.
Or, for a daily immune boost, try our Rev It Up!™, which delivers a powerful dose of eight different essential oils for boosting your system, yet is safe enough to be used on a daily basis. We consider this especially essential if you have a compromised immune system or are traveling. Harness the benefits of this immune-boosting, circulatory-stimulating, and detoxifying blend by applying it to the bottoms of your feet, under your arms, under the chin, and on the chest area before going somewhere where viruses and bacteria are circulating.
Ease Symptoms, Promote Healing
Have you and loved ones already been bitten by the cold and flu bug? We here at Inshanti feel your pain, and we’re delighted to highlight some products to get you on the road to recovery.
Banish the aches, pains and congestion of colds and fever with Inshanti’s specially formulated Cold & Flu Sinus Rub. A blend of Roman Chamomile, Ravintsara, Eucalyptus globulus, and Laurel Leaf, this rub supports fever reduction and immune support, while its calming aroma will ease your mind from discomfort. Apply Cold & Flu Rub to your neck, chest, forehead/temple areas and the bottom of feet to start healing. This can also be swabbed into the nose or even added to bath water for soothing.
Dealing with the pain and stuffiness of a respiratory infection? An effective blend of ginger, cardamom, myrrh, and frankincense, Inshanti’s Bronchitis Chest Cold works to open nasal and bronchial passages and fight mucus while warming and easing the tightness of the chest. We suggest applying it directly to the neck, chest, and back area, and following with a heating pad.
Scents of the Season
Nothing says “holiday season” like the aromas of Black spruce, Virginia cedarwood, and balsam fir! Combine these oils with the zing of sweet orange oil, and you have Inshanti’s famous O Christmas Tree™ undiluted blend. More than just a powerful scent, the healing properties of the oils in the O Christmas Tree™ blend target inflammation, cramps, and congestion to bring rest and relaxation to your body. As a bonus: O Christmas Tree™ blend is our Ship’n’Sniff feature of the month! Try a sample with each order.
This November, we’re grateful for you! As always, a huge, heart-bursting thanks to our friends and family, and we’re looking forward to continuing to support you in your journey to peace and wellness – with the power of plants!
