Graphical Representation of Essential Oils
What do essential oils look like? Well, depends on how you view them! Presented here are the grapical paintings of essential oils by Lucas Anderson.
What are they?
Lucas Anderson created graphical representations of essential oils through paintings that incorporate the top 4 or 5 predominant constituents of the oil in an artistic drawing of the chemical structure. To capture the energetics of the oil, Lucas adds several drops of the essential oil to the paint for each painting. He then creatively washes over the canvas with a clipart figure representing the botanical. There will eventually be a representation for every essential oil in the collection, totaling around 130. Keep checking back for new additions to the collection.
Prints are available for purchase. The 4″x5″ Art Cards come in packs of 5 or 6 and can be purchased as a pack of a single oil, or mix and matched. The purchase options below each oil will be for a single pack of 5 cards of that oil. See bottom for multi oil packs.
Each of the larger prints (8″x10″ & 16″x20″) will come with a drop of the essential oil for a multi sensory experience (Except Blue Lotus due to availability).
16×20 Canvas Prints are available on request.
Blue Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera)
The blue lotus is one of Brotherhood ARomatics signature oils. When Lucas discovered this oil and its calmning, compelling, and subtle nature, he fell in love!
Sandalwood (Santalum album)
Sandalwood is another one of Brotherhood ARomatics signature oils. When Lucas discovered the smell of real sandalwood, not the fragrance oil, he also fell in love with its soft, masculine, grounding, and sweet aroma.
Juniperberry (Juniperus communis)
While it’s latin name suggest its common, in our opinion, it is anything but!
Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara)
Neroli, one of three essential oils obtained from the same botanical, the bitter orange is a busy bee… I mean tree!
Rose (Rosa damascena)
A rose by any other name… yes would still smell as sweet!
Rosewood (Aniba rosaeodora)
Aniba rosaeodora is one of several species that is CITES protected as it is an endangered species. Due to over harvesting, and high demand, it has become a species that needs help in protecting.
When this painting is finished, we will be donating 15% of all profits from the sales of the prints to the AIRMID Institute in an effort to support efforts to protect this precious tree.
Devils Club (Oplopanax horridus)
Devil’s club, also known as Oplopanax horridus, is a unique and distinctive plant found in North America. It is characterized by its large, palmate leaves and spiky thorns along the stems. Traditionally used by Native American tribes for medicinal purposes, devil’s club is believed to possess properties that support the immune system and promote overall well-being.
