Aromatherapy Spray to Ease Your Mind

Filed under: Oil Blends For Health, Emotional, Mental Concerns — Administrator @ 11:48 pm

Stumble it!

Most of us go through periodic bouts of worry and stress, or times when our thoughts seem to go round and round like a hamster wheel.

Fortunately, there is sweet-smelling relief close at hand.

Find out which Essential Oils can help to settle your mind, alleviating worry, obsessive overthinking, and muddled Anxiety. We’ll also tell you how to make a simple and effective spray that you can use just about anywhere for soothing and comfort. You can even add it to your house-cleaning sprays!

Essential Oils of Marjoram and Chamomile help to quell the worry of a mind under pressure and in need of comfort. Camphoraceous and clarifying, yet sweet and reassuring, Marjoram oil is useful for hazy, fretful states of mental fatigue. It helps to settle those who feel they have no one to talk to, and must consequently struggle with their worries on their own. Its also good for those who tend to worry incessantly about others.

Roman and German Chamomile oils are for the overthinking of the tense perfectionist, and for the person who finds it difficult to switch off from work.

Clary Sage is recommended for the type of overthinking that seems from a tense and changeable search for ideal solutions. Even when such a person has actually made a decision, they worry if it is right and whether they should change their mind.

Fennel oils ability to encourage self-_expression benefits those whose tendency to worry is exacerbated by a difficulty with communication. Thoughts and concerns ferment because they have no positive outlet.

Patchouli oil, like Vetiver, is rich and grounding, restoring awareness of the body and senses. Earthy and sweet, it is supportive to the Spleen, and always the worry that comes of excessive mental strain. Like Coriander seed oil, Patchouli gently stimulates the Mind, and through its spicy warmth uplifts and arouses. Patchouli and Coriander are suitable for the worry of the depressive, remote individual.

Lemon oil clears mental congestion—the plethora of thoughts that bog down the mind. Grapefruit disperses the worry that comes from Tension and frustration.

Geranium Essential Oil increases ones awareness of the senses, helping to settle a restless and scattered mind. Its indicated for people whose overthinking stifles and obscures the emotions. It may be used to encourage the capacity for receptivity and intuitive insight.

Cardamom oil is effective for worry in all its forms, grounding and inspiring contentment and tranquility. Cardamom is uplifting and clarifying, benefiting anxious, muddled, and depressive types.

Calming Mind Sprays

Place the oils in one cup of water in a spray bottle and shake well. Spray in the air or on non-staining surfaces.

For Obsessive Overthinking

For Those Over-Preoccupied with Detail

For Those who are Over-Analytical and Detached

Aromatherapy For Staying Alert

Filed under: Oil Blends For Health — Administrator @ 8:15 am

Stumble it!

Summer is here! and if you are like Al and I you have so much you want to do and things you need to do! The last thing you want is to not be awake and alert. Especially when you are doing any of your tasks.

Driving, of course, being a task you must be mentally aware at all times, especially of everything going on around you.

Of course there are other things you do where you need to pay attention and be alert. (You know, like when you are on the golf course or fishing!! . . . Ok, I’m in summer mode!)

Several Essential Oils not only help you stay alert and focused but may also give you the energizing boost you need to finish.

One of the best known Essential Oils for alertness is Rosemary, Grapefruit and Peppermint. Some others that work well too include Spearmint, Eucalyptus Radiata, Bergamot, Lemon, Lime and other citrus. Other oils that may help include: Basil, Cardamom, Cinnamon, Petitgrain, Black Pepper, Coriander, and Juniper.

Give this Alertness blend a try

Juniper – 14 drops
Pine needle – 8 drops
Rosemary – 8 drops

Blend all in an amber bottles. Place several drops in any Diffuser. If you are using in your car while traveling apply about 5-6 drops on your car Diffusers pad. Insert into plug in. Diffuse for no longer than 20 minutes in the car.

If diffusing in the home, you can diffuse for longer periods of time as the house has more cubic footage than the interior of any auto.

If you don’t have time to blend some oils, you might want to try one of our energizing blends. Mint Energizing blend is a big favorite. Refreshing blend and Revitalizing blends may also help.

Surprising Alertness Blend

Grapefruit – 5 drops
Lime – 5 drops
Black Pepper – 2 drops
Peppermint – 2 drops

Blend all in a small amber bottles. Then diffuse or if you prefer place in a Personal Inhaler and take several inhalations as often as needed.

Essential Oils in Your First Aid Kit

Filed under: Reference Articles, First Aid, Minor Injuries — Administrator @ 8:49 am

Stumble it!

Yes, Essential Oils are an important part of any first aid kits and in your travel case too.

A list of basic Essential Oils for any one just starting out will include many of these Essential Oils to begin with.

Without a doubt, number one on the list is Lavender. Next should be Tea Tree. Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Thyme, Lemon, and Clove bud.

Personally, I would also suggest adding Helichrysum .

A quick list of why each oil is useful follows. This list is just the most common reason or uses. There are certainly many, many more uses of each of these oils. Be sure to get a good book on Aromatherapy. One good book is Valerie Ann Worwoods book – The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy. This book provided some of the information for this article. See our Book Review page for other excellent aromatherapy books.

  • Lavender : Stings and bites, burns, Bruises, scrapes. It has analgesic, Antiseptic and more properties to help heal wounds. Not to mention the calming effect it will have to the person affected.
  • Tea Tree : Good for all types of infections. It is antifungal, antiviral and anti bacterial. Good for all kinds of skin wounds and irritations from sunburn, to Acne, athlete’s foot and more.
  • Peppermint : Known for its antinausea and Indigestion relief. Peppermint also helps with Headaches, Sinus congestion and even for painful joints! I recently read where adding a few drops to some calamine lotion, helps relieve and heal Poison ivy lesions more quickly! Oh and if you are camping, Peppermint will help keep the ants away from the picnic table, the mice out of your tent and other unwanted pests away too! (Al just mentioned that if you go camping in bear country, you should be cautious about using any Essential Oil as some bears are easily attracted to sweet scents.)
  • Roman and/or German Chamomile : Excellent to help you and your children relax and fall asleep more easily after a day of excitement. Of course, they also have anti-inflammatory properties and are helpful for burns, bee stings nettle rashes, and other injuries.
  • Eucalyptus : Best known to help relieve congestion from coughs and Colds. But did you know that it is also an excellent insect repellent? Especially Eucalyptus Citriodora (Eucalyptus Lemon). Eucalyptus has great Antiseptic and antiviral properties. It is anti-inflammatory and a mild analgesic (relieves pain). There are several varieties of Eucalyptus and any of them would be a great addition to your kit.
  • Rosemary : This wonderful stimulating Essential Oil is great to use on long road trips. It will give you a Pick Me Up and will be great after a long and tiring day. Rosemary is also one of Al’s recommendations along with Peppermint to use for those Headaches that can pop up out of nowhere. Just a drop or two mixed with a little Carrier Oil and rubbed on the back of your neck and shoulders will relieve those Headaches within a few minutes. Use Rosemary on painful muscles and joints too!
  • Thyme : This is a superb antiviral Essential Oil. It also has great Antibacterial and antifungal properties. Please do not OVER use this oil. It is very potent and should not be used on an ongoing basis. It should be used diluted only. Use when needed and do not use beyond where you are healed and well.
  • Lemon : Best known for its Antiseptic and disinfecting properties. Lemon will freshen and clean most all surfaces. Can be very effective on insect bites. Some folks have found headache relief from using Lemon oil too.
  • Clove bud : Antiseptic, Antibacterial, analgesic are the most important properties held by Clove bud oil. It is great for toothaches and other pains, such as painful joints and muscles. Be sure to dilute with a Carrier Oil before applying to the skin. It is one oil that could cause a skin reaction (burning sensation).
  • Helichrysum : great analgesic, Antibacterial and helps if uses on Bruises shortly after they occur. It will reduce the discoloration and help heal the bruise very quickly. Because it has analgesic properties bumps and Bruises won’t be as painful.

We carry Essential Oils with us wherever and whenever we travel in one of our travel cases. Please, do not leave your Essential Oils in your car. Ideally, if you have a small insulated bag, or cooler, your oils will be much happier in that!! Protecting them from sunlight and excessive heat will prolong their effectiveness and extend their shelf life.

For use in hotel rooms, don’t forget to take along a small Diffuser or two. The TruMelange fan Diffuser or a Scentball are small and easy to use in any guest room or suite.

Have a safe and fun time while you travel this summer!

Simple First Aid Wash

Simply put several drops of Lavender Essential Oil in a small basin of tepid water. If the body part that needs cleaning is easy to submerse, simply swish around in the water for a few minutes. If the body part can not be submersed, then use a wash cloth and gently wipe over the area.

The natural Antiseptic properties of Lavender will help fight any infection and its analgesic property will help with any pain or discomfort.

Aromatherapy For Nausea and Motion Sickness

Filed under: Oil Blends For Health, General Aromatherapy Articles, Digestion — Administrator @ 7:57 am

Stumble it!

You are all packed and ready to go. The excitement of the long awaited day has begun. Everyone is in their seats and next thing you know “little Emily” says she is not feeling well. She has a lot of nausea and the car has barely started to move yet.

Several things to check and to help with Motion Sickness and nausea include:

Did the person eat a little bit or a lot before getting into the car? Sometimes not eating can cause Motion Sickness too.

One of our sons, always got Car Sick if he didn’t have something to eat, especially in the morning. We usually had to give him a bite to eat before we could take the family out for breakfast!!

Can the person see out in front of the car? For some people, sitting in the part of the car where they can not see the road ahead can make them feel sick to the stomach.

If these things are fine and Motion Sickness and nausea are still present, the number one Essential Oil is a little bit of Ginger . Simply inhale a drop or two of Ginger placed on a tissue or placed in an Inhaler. Some people will respond better to Peppermint or Spearmint. For some Roman Chamomile gives relief.

For those that suffer from chronic Motion Sickness you may want to try breathing in any one oil or a blend of a couple of the above Essential Oils BEFORE getting into the car, train, boat or plane. Inhaling these 30 – 60 minutes before departure and every 15 to 30 minutes while on your trip may make a world of difference in you enjoying your trip.

Other Essential Oils that might help with nausea include Coriander, Cardamom and Fennel . Since each person has different preference and chemical makeup, you may need to do a trial with each of these oils separately (and the ones listed above too) to find out which one or a combination of a couple seem to give you the best relief before and while traveling.

If you get to the point of vomiting you might want to try this recipe.

Mix the oils together in the Carrier Oil, then rub your hands together to warm the oil. Gently massage over the abdomen, afterwards you may want to cup your hands over your face (nose and mouth) and slowly inhale for a few breaths before washing your hands.

Motion Sickness Blend for nausea

Blend all Essential Oils in an amber bottle. Simply breath a few drops from a tissue or use a Personal Inhaler. Inhale 30-60 minutes before departure and also every few minutes while traveling.
