I didn’t realize that there already is an expat community who is into essential oils in Vietnam. I heard Mandala Wellness hosts sessions. And since I had the most difficult time getting my oils from the US, I really better make the most of it.
Below are just some of my favorites — all natural balms that help in that itch, bump, and wound among others. They’re all oil-based and that got me interested.
I wanted to make rollers for the oil blends and wouldn’t you know it, I couldn’t find a local supplier because well, I didn’t know the Vietnamese word for it. But they had in Lazada luckily. But a month after I ordered, I still haven’t received the rollers. After letting Lazada know, they told me the shipment is lost. If I hadn’t followed up, I wouldn’t have known! I better get my refund soon!
Prior to this, I came across the Vietnamese term for rollers — chai bi lăn thủy tinh. I did try contacting some local suppliers after but it was only last weekend that a supplier finally delivered. Just one day after negotiating, the bottles were delivered.
A friend has been complaining of some discomfort when she stands and walks for long periods of time so I made her a blend of Copaiba, Panaway, and Peppermint aka Triple Threat to hopefully ease the ache. This one worked for me so I hope it works for her too.
Now that I have my rollers with me, am off to make some blends for the family.
Do you use essential oils? Are you in Saigon? Would love some leads where to get carrier oils like Sunflower, Jojoba, Rosehip, and Fractionated Coconut Oil. Leave me a message!
To order bottles, try my supplier at 0947990991. I tried 7! This one delivered!
