Vireca is an Esperanto word that means 'manly, masculine'. Our richly scented organic blend includes sandalwood, vetiver, and catnip oils.
Sandalwood oil is commonly known for its woodsy, sweet smell and is frequently used as a base for products such as incense, perfumes, cosmetics, and aftershave. Traditionally, sandalwood oil has been a part of religious traditions in India and other Eastern countries. The sandalwood tree itself is considered holy. Sandalwood oil is prized for its relaxing, calming, meditative, properties, and is said to improve mental clarity. It is considered to be a natural aphrodisiac!
Vetiver oil has been used in traditional medicine in South Asia, Southeast Asia and West Africa for thousands of years. It’s native to India, and both its leaves and roots have wonderful uses. Vetiver is known as a sacred herb valued because of its uplifting, soothing, healing and protective properties. In India and Sri Lanka it’s known as the “oil of tranquility.” Traditionally, vetiver oil has been used in aromatherapy for relaxation and alleviating emotional stress, panic attacks, trauma, anxiety, insomnia, hysteria and depression.
Catnip oil is relaxing and soothing and has been used to repel insects, improve digestion, reduce flatulence, calm nerves, and as an antifungal and antimicrobial.
Our Vireca blend oils are conveniently pre-diluted in jojoba oil so they're safe to apply directly to the skin.
Jojoba oil is unique in that, unlike most other vegetable oils, it closely resembles sebum, a waxy substance produced by our skin glands, so it can act as a natural skin conditioner. Jojoba oil is actually a mixture of long chain monounsaturated liquid wax esters. They are structurally different from triglycerides, which are what most of the other seed oils are made of. Technically speaking, it isn’t really an oil after all! It has a high shelf life and can be stored for long periods as it is a relatively stable liquid. It does not oxidize easily and will not turn rancid compared to other oils because it does not contain triglycerides, unlike most other vegetable oils such as grape seed oil and coconut oil. Non-greasy and lightweight, jojoba is absorbed easily into the skin.
