RealHeal - Aromatherapy For Muscle Pain, Aches and Bruising

Filed under: Oil Blends For Health, General Aromatherapy Articles — Administrator @ 11:38 am

The Healing Process explained

Healing is about more than cure. While it is important for tissue to heal, for bones to knit and for regeneration to take place, healing also occurs on a deep emotional level. In order to heal, we also need to be nurtured, to feel safe and loved and to be cared for. We need to put aside our worries and stresses and Focus inward in order to harness the natural ability of the body to heal itself. The best healers are those who are able to nurture their own spirit and release the Healing Process from inside.

How can Natural Remedies help?

Natural Remedies have a big role to play in healing after injury of any kind. Herbal medicines have been used for centuries to help repair broken bones, torn and sprained muscles, internal and external Bruising and Injuries of all types.

Ongoing pain and stiffness due to conditions like Arthritis, Rheumatism and sports Injuries respond well to natural intervention without the side effects commonly associated with the prescription drugs.

Aromatherapy is a holistic form of treatment which uses concentrated extractions from a wide range of plants in order to effect and assist with healing. Therapeutic massage using carefully selected aromatherapy oils brings the important soothing element of touch to the Healing Process.

Not only does this help us to feel good, but it also helps to release endorphins and other pain relieving chemicals in our body, thereby bringing relief. Massage also promotes the flow of oxygen rich blood to the affected areas, thereby speeding up the Healing Process. In addition, the therapeutic aromas enter the system via the sense of smell and stimulate areas of the brain, assisting with Relaxation and Pain Relief and facilitating the Healing Process.

Along with massage, one can therefore burn the oils in a special Oil Burner for further benefit. The area of the brain which interprets smell is very close to the area that processes emotions. Aromatherapeutic oils therefore work very effectively on the emotional level – a crucial factor in any Healing Process.

Aromatherapeutic oils may be used along with conventional medicines to reduce the need for prescription painkillers, Anti-Inflammatories, etc.

What is RealHeal Massage Oil?

RealHeal Massage Oil is a blend of especially chosen aromatherapy oils well known for their healing, restorative and pain killing properties. It may be used for a wide range of Injuries and physical Trauma, as well as after childbirth and to assist with sport-related injury.

RealHeal Massage Oil may also be used along with our natural RealHeal Tablets to assist the Healing Process internally and externally. For those using RealHeal Massage Oil for Arthritic and rheumatic conditions, we also recommend JointEase Plus, our natural Anti-Inflammatory.

Use RealHeal Massage Oil to soothe and relieve pain and promote faster healing:

NOTE: Not for use directly on broken skin or open wounds. RealHeal Massage Oil works by bringing relief to the painful area by means of massage and absorption into the affected tissue, as well as via the inhalation of the aromatherapeutic properties of the blend.

What are the ingredients of RealHeal Massage Oil?

RealHeal Massage Oil contains only 100% pure aromatherapy oils in a natural carrier base:

Peppermint Essential Oil: – has many therapeutic uses and may be used for a wide variety of conditions including respiratory and Digestive Conditions as well as musculo-skeletal pain. Used in massage, Peppermint has strong Anti-Inflammatory and analgesic properties and also assists in promoting blood flow to the affected areas. On the emotional level, the aroma of Peppermint oil will Relax and refresh the mind as well as the body, helping to uplift the spirits and restore courage and mental Focus.

Ginger Essential Oil: – obtained from the root of the Ginger plant, Ginger, like Peppermint, is a highly versatile Medicinal Plant with thousands of years of therapeutic history. The oil is warming and toning and has particular application to all musculo-skeletal conditions, soothing Pains and Aches and also helping to reduce Fever. Inhalation of Ginger also helps to boost tired spirits and strengthen resolve.

Pine Essential Oil: – In traditional Herbal Medicine, the shoots of young Pine trees were used during bathing to treat Rheumatism, promote circulation and relieve Nervous fatigue. Therapeutically, Pine Essential Oil is very effective in relieving the pain caused by conditions such as Arthritis, Rheumatism and Gout and promotes circulation. Strongly recommended in the treatment of post surgical or post illness fatigue, Pine oil is refreshing and helps to lift the spirits.

How has RealHeal helped others?

“This massage oil works well for me with my Aches and Pains. As you said, I dont have to use my painkillers as much and the oil is very soothing and relaxing! ” Shari

“I had Bruising all over after an accident and the Realheal Oil was marvelous for the pain and the bruises disappeared in record time. A few months later I developed a painful neck and remembered the oil I still had in my bathroom. My wife massaged my neck before bed and the next morning the pain was gone. I will always keep some of this product on hand!” Brent P.

“Fortunately my sister bought me a bottle of your RealHeal Massage Oil for my frozen shoulder. It has been a great relief and with gentle massage every night I can begin to move it again. Best of all is I get some sleep after the massage instead of tossing and turning all night trying to avoid lying on my shoulder! Thanks a lot! ” Lisa

How do I use RealHeal Massage Oil?

With aromatherapy, a little goes a long way! RealHeal Massage Oil may be self applied or (even better) massaged on by someone else.

Pour a little into the palm of the hand and rub together to warm the oil. For postoperative and postnatal use, or for use on bruises, massage should be gentle and applied slowly with the palm of the flat hand. For Arthritis, rheumatic conditions or muscular Aches and Pains, some pressure may be applied in order to reach deep into the muscle fiber. At no point should pressure be strong enough to inflict any pain and it is important that this be a relaxing and positive experience.

Use twice daily or more often if required.

Caution: May be used from the age of 3 years. However, safety during Pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been established. Contains groundnut oils and is therefore not recommended for people with nut Allergies. RealHeal Massage Oil should not be used on open wounds or cuts.

Note: For even better results, use with RealHeal Tablets or JointEase Plus.

How long till I see results?

Immediate relief is usually obtained during massage. With frequent use, healing should be greatly facilitated.

For those treating Arthritis and rheumatic conditions, regular use should help to minimize reliance on pain and Anti-Inflammatory medication as well as reduce the frequency, duration and severity of pain.

How long does one bottle last?

One bottle of RealHeal Massage Oil should last approximately 3 weeks, depending on frequency of use.

Helping Bronchitis With Essential Oils

Filed under: Oil Blends For Health — Administrator @ 9:11 am

Bronchitis is caused by congestion and inflammation of the bronchial passage ways in the lungs. It can be caused by a viral infection or Allergens or sometimes something even unknown.

It can make it difficult to breath. Especially, if the mucous is thick and sticky. It becomes very difficult to cough it up and get it out of your chest.

It can be caused by Allergens and/or infections. It can be an acute attack – sudden onset, as seen with Colds and upper respiratory or it can be chronic – which could be due to a lingering bacterial infection or due to irritations from environmental exposure to dust and other pollutants.

There are several Essential Oils that can help with bronchitis. There are many Essential Oils that can help loosen the mucous and make the cough more Productive. And to prevent it in the first place there are several Essential Oils to help build the Immune System.

You can use Essential Oils in a bowl of warm to fairly hot water, drape a towel over your head and breathe in deeply for 10-15 minutes. Or you can use several of the oils in the bath or shower. In the shower an easy way to diffuse them is to place several drops on a terra cotta passive type Diffuser and let the warm water hit the Diffuser while it sits on the shower stall floor. Of course, be careful not to step on the small disk. Using the Essential Oils in a bath or shower will give you some quick relief.

You can diffuse the oils in your bedroom all night using a fan Diffuser.

Or you can mix a little with a Carrier Oil and apply to your chest, neck, and the bottom of your feet. When you apply the oils mixed with a little carrier or massage oil, your body will absorb and be able to use the oils at the cellular level to help heal and repair damage done to the lung tissues.

The Essential Oils that appear to give the most relief for those suffering from bronchitis include: Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Radiata , Lavender, Peppermint and Frankincense are most commonly used to help lung congestion. Other oils include Rosemary, Rosemary Verbenone, Niaouli, Marjoram, Pine needle , Cedarwood, Myrtle, Ravensara, Thyme linalool

Bronchitis chest rub
Eucalyptus – 12 drops
Peppermint – 5 drops
Thyme – 5 drops
1 ounce of Sunflower oil

Mix well and gently rub on your chest and throat several times a day.

Another blend to use for Bronchitis
Thyme linalool – 10 drops
Eucalyptus Radiata – 10 drops
Niaouli – 10 drops
Myrtle – 25 drops

Blend well and use one of these ways – Put in about 10 drops in a bowl of steaming hot water and let the steam fill the air
Place several drops on a tissue or use in a personal inhaler.
Put 3-5 drops in a Carrier Oil and massage over the chest and back.

This blend is great for children.

This recipe is adapted from Aromatherapy for the Healthy child by Valerie Ann Worwood.

Remember that Essential Oils all have antibacterial and antiviral properties and the Essential Oils that are used in treating bronchitis symptoms are especially good for treating these type of germs.

Special note:
If you have chronic bronchitis and you are a smoker, there is probably no Essential Oil that will help to get rid of your cough or congestion. You will need to Stop Smoking so the irritating substances will no longer be present in your airways.

Bronchitis foot rub

Cinnamon – 2 drops
Nutmeg – 2 drops
Ginger – 2 drops
Thyme – 10 drops
Eucalyptus – 10 drops
Sweet almond – 1 ounce

Blend all the Essential Oils together in a bottle, then add the Almond Oil. Rub a few drops of this mixture on the bottom of your feet twice a day. Remember to wear socks to bed too. I know this appears strange but remember Essential Oils are easily absorbed through the skin on the bottom of your feet. The Essential Oils then quickly travel through the blood stream to the areas they are needed to help – in this case the lungs. You get slow absorption all day and the Essential Oils will be working for you without having to constantly reapply.
