CDL Naturals Essential Oils

Categories: Others, , Leave a comment

Casa de Lorenzo Organic Products is a manufacturing entity specializing in castile soaps and essential oils. The idea of offering natural alternatives to Filipinos was founded in 2009. During the time CDL was conceptualized, there was a scarcity of pure, natural aromatics or essential oils available, as well as limited options for truly natural skin care in the Philippines. It was in 2011 when Casa de Lorenzo started offering small-scale, handcrafted products like castile soaps made from Olive Oil, Virgin Coconut Oil and essential oils. Formalized as a business entity in 2016, Casa de Lorenzo Organic Products had since been dedicated to offering unique natural options to its customers with ingredients preferably coming from plants of the Philippines and made by Filipino farmers and communities.

Even until today, the potential for essential oils from local plants and trees has barely been tapped. Casa de Lorenzo developed small commercial scale extraction of essential oils and is engaged in the study of Philippine plants and its essential oils. With its mission of combining nature, tradition and innovation, they strive to create a better everyday life for people using natural and organic products while helping local farmers and communities.
Casa de Lorenzo Organic Products is engaged in the manufacturing of castile soaps, extraction of essential oils, extraction of oils from seeds, fruits and nuts, and combining these into wonderful natural produce.

Some plants and trees produce aromatic substances for a variety of reasons. In the last 1,000 years, humanity has learned to extract the concentrated aroma and utilize these in fragrances and flavors. The most common of these extracts are called “Essential Oils.” The most common method for getting the aroma of plants is via distillation.

Through the utilization of heat and water, aromatic molecules are vaporized in a controlled container and condensed back to liquid, but the water and oil separate from each other. The oil part is now called essential oil and the water part are called“hydrosols.” The other way for getting essential oils from plants is via expression or pressing. This is common for citrus fruits where essential oils are stored in the rind of the fruits. When the peels are pressed, a special process is done so water and oil is separated.

Essential oils are complex substances, composed of 20 to as high as 400 aromatic chemicals produced by plants. While there are fragrances available inspired by essential oils, they cannot be replicated completely as there is no existing technology that can produce most of the aromatic compounds of plants. Aside from its uniqueness, essential oils bring a wide array of benefits to our bodies as it is slowly being validated by more and more studies. Aromatherapy is an alternative system utilizing essential oils to induce beneficial effects and promote well-being via inhalation and skin application.

Here in the Philippines, the most common essential oils are Lemongrass and Citronella since they’re the easiest to grow, require least maintenance and very abundant. Casa de Lorenzo has pioneered the introduction of other essential oils from native plants and trees of the Philippines, and is working to create and discover more essential oils from the country.

Most of us are moving toward working from home, creating new routines to end the day strong. Does working from home make you more productive? Some may say it’s nice to be working at home but let’s face it, there are so many challenges with shifting to the new normal. Work from home set-up requires an ample amount of discipline.

With this new set-up, there is a high risk of burning out, discouraged, and may be depressed. There might be a dilemma when it comes to internet connection, have a hard time to wake up early as usual, distractions from neighbors or family members, disorganize workflow and many more to mention. Fret not because there are also so many ways to boost work from home productivity. This is what we are going to talk about today and I am so excited to share how to work from home plus tips for maximizing productivity when you are working from home.

Sticking to a routine can be positive. If you don’t have one, it will be harder to be productive and have the urge to end the day strong. Working from home let us wear anything we like like PJ’s but I do not recommend wearing one because it will only result to being lazy and the feeling of you just want to have a relaxation-time and not work time. A good morning routine will help you separate the professional from your personal routine.

It is better to have a dedicated work space in your home. I can see that it will be a part of our normal routine that is why having like a separate room for your work is highly recommended to keep you away from distractions and to be more focus and productive in your work. It can be an old store room, an old vacant room, or anywhere you feel comfortable working.

It is also imperative to think about safety while at home. We should get household employee insurance, valuable items protection thru home insurance Philippines. We can enjoy what this insurance provides hospitalization, personal accident and personal belongings protection to the insured’s household employees. It also covers basic property insurance so we will not worry about any problem occurs like bursting or overflowing of water tanks, pipes & fittings, replacement & lock keys, burglary & housebreaking in our house so we can focus while working.

Work-life balance is a very important when working from home. Like your professional life, your personal life is as important as it is. If you are working from 9-5, stick to it. Over-time can stress you out, both physically and mentally, make sure to monitor this. Remember you do not live to work, you still have your social life.

Working from home means free access to kitchen. We can easily grab our favorite soda and unhealthy snacks. Be on a healthy diet when you are working everyday. You must eat food that helps you function better instead of draining your energy.
