Make Your Own Aroma Spray

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles — Administrator @ 11:43 am

Stumble it!

Given the rising costs of aroma sprays, spritzers, misters, and other olfactory delights, it is now becoming clearer that making your own is not only cheaper, but more fun! This simple formula will help you create a delightful aroma-therapeutic spray in just under a few minutes.

With the recent popularity in aromatherapy and related products falling under the guise of aromatherapy, we felt it was time to share some of the basics involved with preparing the easily crafted aroma spray. Most aroma sprays typically cost around $9-12.00 for a small 1 to 4 ounce bottle.

From experience we can tell you that most of those dollars were used for packaging, marketing, labor, advertising, etc, and very little went into the raw goods. In fact, making your own blends is very economical, and you can customer create blends for yourself, your friends and family.

First, create a list of your favorite Essential Oils, or those oils that you think may combine well together. Be certain that you are aware of any potential hazards or precautions involved with those oils first before using them. See our Essential Oil Guide below if you need a few ideas to get you started.

1. Mix your choice of oils in a small glass container, bottle or vial.
2. Use a separate 8 ounce glass or plastic bottle (or other container), and fill it up with 7 ounces of spring water, and 1 ounce of Witch Hazel extract (alcohol distilled). You may also substitute a Hydrosol (flower water) for some or all of the spring water. Hydrosols add their own aroma and have therapeutic properties.
3. Pour 1 ml of your Essential Oil blend into the 8 ounce container and shake vigorously.
4. The oils may separate a little bit, but if the Witch Hazel extract is doing its job, there should be very little separation. If this occurs, simply shake well before each use.
5. Pour into bottles and attach a mister or spray pump. We especially recommend using a colored glass bottle, such as amber or cobalt, as they will help prevent from light deterioration.
6. Get creative with the packaging! Add ribbons, yarn, twine, fresh or dried Herbs, or other embellishments, and make your own labels from handmade or decorative papers. Draw on the labels, use rubber stamps, or use clipart images.

Please note that the above recipe is completely arbitrary, and the amount and types of Essential Oil you use is completely up to you. Experimenting with a recipe is the most enjoyable part of creation!

Aromatherapy for Occasional Minor Depression

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles, Depression, Anxiety — Administrator @ 11:37 am

Stumble it!

As I look out the window, I’m thinking how dreary it is right now. It’s pouring rain, the sky is gray, and the trees have lost most of their leaves. Sigh.

I need something to lift this Blue mood Im in! As usual, aromatherapy comes to the rescue. This article gives a brief introduction to various Essential Oils that are known for their mood elevation abilities. By the end of the article, you should have a better sense of where to cast your nose for help the next time you feel down.

My favorite mood elevator is Rose Essential Oil (rosa damascena). One drop of this heavenly scent in a Diffuser is potent enough to make me feel happy! However, Rose Essential Oil is extremely expensive.

A cheaper (although still not cheap) alternative to Rose Essential Oil is Geranium (pelargonium graveolens), sometimes called Rose Geranium. When you smell Geranium Essential Oil, you wont believe how much it smells like Rose Essential Oil! And again, one drop in a Diffuser is plenty, making it a bit economical.

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil (anthemis nobilis) is renowned for its ability to calm people down. It can be somewhat sedating, so use it only when you know you dont have to be completely alert. Don’t confuse Roman Chamomile with German Chamomile (matricaria recutita). They are very different Essential Oils.

Lavender Essential Oil (lavandula augustifolia) is also wonderful for making happy thoughts. It smells so clean and fresh.

The citrus oils are also known as mood elevators. One of my favorite citrus Essential Oils is Mandarin (citrus reticulata). Don’t confuse Mandarin Essential Oil with Tangerine Essential Oil. Even though they smell similar, Tangerine Essential Oil does not have the same chemical makeup that makes Mandarin oil so good for Anxiety.

Although I love the scent of Patchouli (pogostemon cablin) and Vetiver (vetiveria zizanoides) Essential Oils, I wouldnt use them on a day when I need my mood lifted. They are known as dark, heavy, earthy scents and aren’t the best for feeling happier when you feel a bit down.

A quick look at some of my references gives a list of Essential Oils that are known as mood elevators. They are the kinds of oils that give you a “feel good feeling” when you have a mild case of the blues. Here are some other Essential Oils recommended for “despondency” by Shirley Price in her Aromatherapy Workbook:

Bergamot, Neroli and Petitgrain (all are varieties of citrus aurantium)

Clary Sage (salvia sclarea)

Coriander (coriandrum sativum)

Cypress (cupressus sempervirens)

Ginger (zingiber officinale)

Melissa (Melissa officinalis)

Niaouli (Melaleuca quinquenervia)

Rosewood (aniba rosaeodora)

Sandalwood (santalum album)

Ylang Ylang (cananga odorata)

There are other mood elevating Essential Oils out there, and the fun of aromatherapy is in the discovery of how a particular Essential Oil affects you. You might want to compile your own personal mood elevating Essential Oils list so that it’s handy the next time you feel a bit down.

This is definitely a case where I like to use my tea light Candle oil and water Diffuser, as it makes the scent last a long time. As a cautionary note, remember not to take any of these oils internally or use them on your skin until you research them thoroughly. Not all Essential Oils can be taken internally and/or used topically.

Remember that these oils are traditionally used for an occasional feeling of minor Depression, sadness or Anxiety or just feeling “down in the dumps”. If you have a serious case of major Depression, you need to be under a doctors care.

Made in the Shade: Flowers Are Color-Coded for Their Use as Remedies

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles — Administrator @ 8:50 am

Stumble it!

My other article in this issue talks about the characteristics of three different Yarrows—white, yellow, and pink. They are different in effect precisely because their colors are different. To enhance our understanding of other flower families, let’s consider how the color of flowers in general may hint at the specific way they help us.

In particular, we will look at the chakra system—the seven invisible energy centers in the aura or energy body that surrounds our physical body—and the colors associated with them. Often—although it should be noted, not always—the issues that the various colors of flowers address are linked to the corresponding energy center.

RED is associated with the root or base chakra at the tailbone, which governs issues of grounding and survival. The Australian Bush flower essence Red Lily helps people become grounded and focused when they feel scattered or disconnected.

As an illustration of how profoundly colors of the blossoms alter the effects of various remedies, Red Lily is actually a form of lotus. The Lotus essence made from white flowers applies to the crown chakra, Meditation, and various forms of spiritual practice, while the Red Lily grounds us solidly in our bodies.

Orange is affiliated with the reproductive system and thus with the second chakra, near the navel. An Orange flower, Tiger Lily (FES and Pegasus) helps men or women who are overly yang to balance their inner masculine and feminine energies.

YELLOW is connected with the solar plexus region, the seat of the self-esteem required to put yourself out in the world with confidence. Yellow Chamomile (FES, Petite Fleur, Harebell, and Pegasus) soothes nervous upsets that tend to settle in the tummy/solar plexus region due to challenges to our self-confidence. Golden Yarrow, discussed in my other article in this issue, is another solar plexus support.

GREEN (and PINK) relate to the fourth or heart center—home of our heart connections to others. Bleeding Heart is another remedy produced by both FES and Pegasus, that’s very pink and actually appears to be shaped like drooping hearts. What you see is what you get. It helps in letting go of a broken relationship.

Blue is the color of the throat chakra, self-_expression being the core issue of the color Blue and the throat chakra. Blue flag is another name for Iris (made by the Alaska Flower Essence Project, FES and Petit Fleur). Iris enables us to express creativity. Forget-me-not from Pacific Essences is for opening the channels of communication, engaging in what is fulfilling, and helpful in emotionally- caused speech disorders.

INDIGO is connected with the “third eye” in the center of the forehead. Indigo, the sixth chakra color, is a dark Blue to a grayish purple. It takes its name from the plant used to create indigo dye. Such a Violet-Blue range flower is Rosemary, an essence offered by FES, Desert Alchemy, and Pegasus. It helps awakening and embodiment for the person with his or her upper chakras so open, they are not really “here” (and probably long to be elsewhere due to difficult experiences with the physical world.)

Violet (or WHITE) is associated with the crown chakra in the upper brain, which is considered our interface with spirit. Lavender, made by Harebell, Pegasus, and FES, is a good representative of the seventh chakra flowers, with its Violet color and ability to help people who are over-stimulated by spiritual forces. It is noteworthy that sixth and seventh chakra issues often “run together” and are as difficult to distinguish as the many shades of Blue that melt into Violet and purple in nature. My first metaphysical teacher said these two chakras actually merge with Meditation practice.

Convenient, isn’t it, how nature provides its own color coding? (A handy acronym for remembering the chakra colors in the order of the colors of the spectrum is ROY G. BIV) When you’re overwhelmed with the vast possibilities for choosing a flower remedy, this is a good place to start: Consider where in the chakra system the issue in question “fits.” Then you can zero in on a family of essences by color, and within that branch, you’re likely to find the one that’s just right for you now.

Gather dried leaves, flowers, and small wood shavings. Crush these plant materials to the desired size. Place 1/2 cup (120 ml) of plant material in a widemouthed glass jar, and add the Essential Oil formula. Stir the contents well and tighten the lid on the jar. Let the potpourri sit for several days to allow the aroma molecules to be absorbed by the plant material.

Essential Oils Help Combat E-Coli

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles — Administrator @ 7:53 am

Stumble it!

In light of the recent E-Coli outbreak, the following earlier research report from Weber State University bears repeating.

Weber State University Publishes Annual Research Report

The U.S. lags behind other countries in Essential Oil research. Any information coming out of research within the U.S. is welcomed indeed.

Weber State University, has recently published its Annual Research Report on Essential Oils. The mission of the work is to identify which oils, and/or combination of oils are effective against disease-causing microorganisms.

The study also compared the effectiveness of two often used antibiotics, Penicillin and Ampicillin, with 4 Essential Oils (two single oils and two blends) against 2 bacteria with known high morbidity rates, Escherichia coli (E-Coli) and Staphylococcus aureus. The four Essential Oils are Cinnamon, Oregano, Immupower and Purification.

The results clearly show all 4 oils superior to both Penicillin and Ampicillin in their ability to kill the microorganisms. In the case of Penicillin, lysis (disintegration) of E-Coli did not occur. Apparently this generation of bacteria strain is totally resistant to Penicillin. Interestingly, the kill rate with Essential Oils went up dramatically as more of the oil was added. This same effect, however, did not occur when more of the antibiotics were added.

With national attention focused on E-Coli bacteria outbreaks, we want to share a portion of another Weber State Study with you that deals with this killer. To understand the numbers next to each oil below, it is necessary to know something of how the study was conducted.

A small piece of paper infiltrated with Essential Oil was placed in a petri dish infected with Escherichia coli. After a period of incubation, examination revealed a dark circle around the paper indicating lysis (disintegration) of the E-Coli. The diameter or size of the dark circle is demonstrative of the kill ratio and referred to as the “Zone of Inhibition” (Through replication, researchers know that E-Coli cannot grow in this zone).

Measured in millimeters (mm), the Zone of Inhibition was noted for each of 67 different oils tested. There were nine oils with a Zone of Inhibition measuring 25 mm or larger, meaning these oils are most effective against E-Coli.

They are:

By mixing Peppermint and Rosewood with a ratio of 1 part Peppermint to 8 parts Rosewood, researchers discovered the Zone of Inhibition for E-Coli increased to 50 mm.

This is wonderful news as one begins to speculate how commerce might employ these oils to insure the safety of our food supply. One in particular, Peppermint oil, caught our attention. Already in use as a food additive, health conscious consumers may consider spraying countertops, sinks, fruits and vegetables with Peppermint oil diluted in water, as a safeguard against the possibility of E-Coli infected food.

The Weber State study is important because it confirms that Essential Oils play a vital role in the health and well-being of mankind.

Flower Essences and Aromatherapy: The Perfect Marriage

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles — Administrator @ 10:06 am

Stumble it!

Flower essences and aromatherapy are both potent forms of vibrational medicine. Flower essences employ the innate power of blossoms, sunlight, and pure spring water. Aromatherapy is derived from flowers as well as from roots, leaves, seeds, fruit, and wood resin. Flower essences generally contain a brandy base to keep them chemically pure and also to “anchor” the blossoms’ vibrations in the water; aromatherapy needs no preservatives. Flower essences carry no contra-indications and cannot be overdosed; aromatherapy may carry specific warnings.

Natural, herbal, non-toxic and non-invasive, flower essences stimulate positive qualities within us. They may be used both sublingually and topically. They have no taste other than the brandy in which they are preserved, nor are they scented. Similar to aromatherapy, they are highly concentrated. A little goes a long way.

Whereas it is important for the scent of the aromatherapy oils to enter the brain—either by way of the olfactory nerves or absorption through the skin—flower essences only need to enter the body sublingually, topically, or around the body, the energy field or the aura, in order to be effective. Since their action is not biochemical in nature, essences do not need to pass through the bloodstream.

Combining the two is remarkably easy. Simply add the flower essence to an aroma Diffuser along with the oils. You may also add essences to Carrier Oils for use in massage or sprinkle them in bath water (sixteen drops per tub). The ratio of essence to Carrier Oil is always the same: four Stock Concentrate drops to a cup of oil. Only one drop to one quarter cup of oil is needed. Adding more drops to the Carrier Oil will do no harm. If you add too much, the essence will simply be wasted.

In fact, in the case of administering essences to animals, one effective dosage method is to simply stroke the remedy onto the animal’s coat, feathers, scales, or shell. Some oils are harmful to animals, so be sure to check with a qualified aromatherapist before administering them to your pets. Do not apply them full strength, and avoid the eyes and mouth.

Additionally, some oils are safe when used externally yet become potentially harmful when used internally due to their high Concentration and potential toxicity. Diluted Tea Tree oil, for example, is an excellent insect repellent for the coat of your cat or dog, and is often found in pet shampoos to add luster to their fur, but its numbing quality on the gums is highly unpleasant for them.

A Case Study: The Child Within

A Massage Therapist, who has evolved her own intuitive approach to working with flower essences and aromatherapy formulas, likes to begin each session with a laying-on-of hands for her client. Once in the person’s energy field, she senses the particular needs at that moment in time. How does she know for certain? “I just do,” she says.

Some time ago, she treated a woman whose mother had died earlier that year. The masseuse selected Spinach Essence—for simplicity, lack of pretense, and nurturing the inner child. She then added it to a small quantity of warmed Carrier Oil. Halfway through the massage, the woman lifted her head and said, “You know, I miss my mother,” her tears flowing along with the release of repressed grief. Not one inclined to communicate or express her feelings, the woman left the treatment feeling cleansed both physically and emotionally, newly able to articulate her simple needs and inner growth.

In Conclusion

Last week, I spoke with a medical doctor on the East Coast who has been in practice nearly thirty years. She is gradually beginning to treat her patients with holistic therapies and stepping away from medical approaches to illness and disease. She commented, “It’s the flower essences that work deeper, where the transformation takes place.”

Alternative therapies such as flower essences and aromatherapy address subtler states of consciousness where true healing originates. Flower essences and aromatherapy—and indeed all vibration-based tinctures—derive their efficacy by acting as catalysts for our inner transformation. I like the image of essences as pump primers.

Once our life force is activated, their work is done. These Herbal Remedies do not transform us; they allow us to transform ourselves. They do not change us; they support us in changing ourselves.

Countless massage practitioners and holistic therapists have combined flower essences and aromatherapy for their families, friends, pets, and clients, demonstrating that this union is indeed a perfect marriage.
