Aromatherapy Meditation Blend

Filed under: Stress and Relaxation, Stress, Tension — Administrator @ 9:24 am

Stumble it!

Many people practice Meditation on a daily basis. This, I understand is a great way to reconnect with yourself and in doing so, actually helps you to have a more productive day or week.

Although Al and I don’t necessarily practice Meditation we do love to just sit quietly and ‘zone’. Not really thinking of anything in particular but just relaxing and enjoying the moments.

For those that do Meditate or those wanting to start, there are several Essential Oils that have given themselves to just this purpose. Commonly used Frankincense and Myrrh are almost always found in every Meditation blend. Other oils include, Helichrysum , Juniper , Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Lavender, Lemon, Jasmine, Rose, Roman Chamomile, Cypress, Neroli, Geranium Cedarwood and Spikenard .

You may even have your favorites.

Here is a simple Mediation blend

Blend together, diffuse in any Diffuser – best to use only 5-6 drops to start with, more can always be added.
We have several blends you may want to try. Meditation blend of course, but others may include; Calming blend, Relaxing blend, Take Five blend, Enlighten blend , Forest Rain blend, Beautiful blend and Sensual and . Several of these blends have 2-4 of the above Essential Oils and may quickly be your blend of choice when Meditating or just plain winding down for a few minutes.

Essential Oils For Fibromyalgia

Filed under: General Aromatherapy Articles, Nervous System — Administrator @ 9:28 am

Stumble it!

Fibromyalgia is a complex and baffling health condition that is reaching epidemic proportions in the United States. It is estimated that approximately 5 million Americans are suffering from this condition. Because conventional medicine has very few effective options to offer at this point, people with this condition are often branded as hypochondriacs and told that their problem is in their head.

Many people with fibromyalgia experience severe and debilitating pain that tends to move around the body. In addition, people with this condition often exhibit neurological problems that can manifest as Memory Loss, difficulty concentrating, Anxiety, and Depression. Since this condition has a neurological component, it is very convenient for these peoples symptoms to be discounted as signs of neurosis.

This condition is very real and it is horribly disabling and debilitating to those experiencing symptoms. The lack of medical support, family support, and social support can be incredibly isolating for people with this condition. This can heighten the suffering of those who are already in deep physical and mental pain.

There is a building body of research that is pointing to the likelihood that fibromyalgia is not an auto-immune disorder, but is instead caused by a number of different infectious pathogens. Some of the pathogens that may cause the symptoms of fibromyalgia are mycoplasmas and a variety of emerging bacteria that are carried by insects. These pathogens are not easily detected because they tend to reside inside our cells instead of in the bloodstream. Special testing methods are required to detect the specific pathogen that may be triggering symptoms for a person with fibromyalgia.

It also appears that the severity of symptoms a person has may be related to the number of different pathogens that the person has. A person can experience pain and other symptoms that are very resistant to conventional methods of treatment, because the pain can persist as long as the pathogenic load is not reduced. Simply suppressing symptoms such as pain does not work very well or work for very long for people with this condition.

One very effective way to manage fibromyalgia is through the use of Essential Oils. Essential Oils can help people with fibromyalgia in a number of different ways. First of all, they can relieve the pain of fibro. The pain relief people experience is frequently marked and rapid, even when the pain does not respond to heavy duty steroids or opiates. This in itself is a wonderful thing because pain can be addressed naturally, reducing the risk of unwanted side effects and reducing the risk of addiction to painkillers.

Another benefit of using Essential Oils is that the oils can have a marked effect on ones psychological and emotional state. This is partly due to the fact that the molecules that compose the oils have the capacity to cross the blood-brain barrier, and positively effect the mind. The effects of the oils can range from relieving Anxiety and improving sleep, to increasing Concentration and relieving Depression. The use of Essential Oils can relieve many of the neuropsychiatric and emotional problems related to this condition that are most disconcerting to the patient and to the people surrounding her or him.

The Essential Oils are also very effective at improving the Immune System response. This improves the bodys ability to fight of any infectious processes that have taken a hold.

Many Essential Oils are also Antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral, and are active against mycoplasmas. The oils directly kill the pathogens that may be disrupting the persons health and well-being. People with fibromyalgia often respond to treatment with Essential Oils very rapidly because the oils rapidly reduce the pathogenic load that is present in the body. Each Essential Oil is often active against a broad spectrum of pathogens, and when these oils are used in combination with each other, their ability to deal with a wide range of bacteria, fungi, and viruses is enhanced.

Essential Oil therapy can result in increased energy, significant pain reduction, improved Concentration, better memory, increased metabolism, better sleep, reduced Anxiety, reduced Depression, better range of motion, improved blood Circulation, and a significantly better quality of life.

Because the pathogens that may be responsible for fibromyalgia are often quite resistant to treatment, the Essential Oils need to be used at a higher Concentration than in traditional aromatherapy. Some of the oils that I have seen people respond well to include Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Lemon, and Lavender.

People with fibromyalgia often shy away from aromatherapy as an option because many of them are chemically sensitive and have strong reactions to fragrances. The Essential Oils are natural plant extracts that bear no resemblance to toxic chemical perfumes. When people with fibromyalgia have a temporary increase in symptoms, such as headache, when exposed to an Essential Oil, it is a Detoxification response and a healing crisis response, not a result of chemical sensitivity. The difference is that the person may feel discomfort temporarily, but after that they feel a significant improvement. On the other hand, when the person is exposed to a synthetic chemical fragrance, the person will spiral downward, because the chemical has increased, not decreased, the toxic load in the body.

Essential Oils are potent multifaceted natural medicinals that are incredibly beneficial when addressing the complexity and diversity of symptoms that people with fibromyalgia experience. These powerful substances may offer hope to people who may have been hopeless in the face of their baffling and cunning illness, if they are open to a natural alternative.

Helping Overworked Muscles

Filed under: General Health Concerns, Joints, Bones, Muscles — Administrator @ 9:12 am

Stumble it!

Soon it may be time to move your college student into their dorm room or new apartment. You have a ton of boxes to move, not to mention furniture. Up and down the stairs, carrying awkward packages and boxes. What seemed like an easy task lasts many hours. Not to mention you may have a long ride to and from the destination. Then you get to move things again!!

At the end of the day you are worn out, your muscles are telling you they’ve had enough. They are tired and maybe a little tight. You deserve some time to yourself. Fill the tub and enjoy a nice hot bath with some wonderful Essential Oils. The scent they produce will make you feel better, but there are others that with the hot water will bring welcome relief to those overworked and tired muscles.

Of course not all of us have college students, but you understand what I’m saying. You have been busy doing something with your arms, legs, back and more that have made you feel tired, sore and plain old “pooped out”.

Essential Oils that are good and that help to penetrate the sore, tired and overworked muscles are Others include Eucalyptus Globulus, Peppermint, Coriander, Cypress, Marjoram, Lavender, Vetiver Ginger, Nutmeg, Pine needle, Rosemary, Thyme and Oregano. Juniper and Black Pepper.

Simply put up to 5-6 drops in the bath. Please use caution with some of these oils as they can make hot water feel hotter than normal. So please start out with 2-3 drops if you are unsure how ‘hot’ you want it!

Or if you can’t take a hot bath, add up to a total of 12-15 drops of two or three different Essential Oils to 1 ounce of a Carrier Oil. Blend well and use to massage.

A very common blend for sore, tired and overworked muscles is very easy to make. Simply put 15 drops of Peppermint and 15 drops of Eucalyptus Globulus in 2 ounces of Sweet Almond or Sunflower oil. Shake well. You’ll only need to massage a few drops of this blend into the affected area. It will make the area feel warm and cool at the same time. Very wonderful sensation and for many, gives you the welcome relief you seek.
