Aromatherapy For Staying Alert

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 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 oils for alertness are Rosemary, Grapefruit and Peppermint. Some others that work well  include Spearmint, Eucalyptus, Bergamot,  and other citrus.

Give this Alertness blend a try

* Juniper - 14 drops
* Pine needle - 8 drops
* Rosemary - 8 drops

Boo Boo Juice Recipe For Children’s Owies

Sometimes our little ones get a boo boo, and the fear from their injury is far greater than the boo boo itself. For these times when your little precious one is crying hard but the boo boo is minor, have him/her help you make this easy recipe. It gets them involved in learning first aid, helps take their mind off the boo boo, and the lavender blend helps calm them and kill a few germs. Note: This recipe isn’t intended for serious cuts/scrapes or injuries.

Ingredients:

* 1 Cotton Ball
* Witch Hazel - enough to saturate the cotton ball
* 1-2 drops Lavender

Directions:

Depending on the age and abilities of your little one, have him/her help you by saturating a cotton ball with witch hazel. Then, apply one drop of lavender to the saturated cotton ball. Have your little one smell the “boo boo juice.” Since lavender helps bring calm, the aroma can be soothing. Then, apply the boo boo juice to the minor cut/scrape or allow your little one to take charge and do it. Apply a band aid if necessary.

Aromatherapy and Hair Growth

Hair growth. A subject that is near and dear to the hearts of many. If you’ve never been one with fine hair or watched your once thick tresses dwindle in number you may never understand the feelings of dread and frustration that can accompany the loss of your hair.

Growing up my mom always told me “A woman’s hair is her shining glory” and it’s stuck with me all these years. She was just trying to get me past that pre- teen “I-don’t-need-to-wash-my-hair-it’s-only-been- a-week-or-so” phase but even now, all these years later it’s something that rings in my ears each time I break out the shampoo (thankfully, it’s now more than once a week!).

While bald can certainly be beautiful, not all of us are ready, willing nor do we want to show off our shiny pates! For those of us who are desperately clinging to the hairs we still have left on our heads and would like to encourage more to stick around for a longer period of time, this month’s recipes have been created.

Improve Your Health with Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy, a term created in 1920, involves the use of essential oils that are compounds in their purist state. The oils are concentrated liquids derived from plants through a variety of means: distillation, solvent extraction or expression processing. And the resulting oils are then used as treatment for a variety of ailments and healing.

Aromatherapy was actually coined because of Mr. Rene Maurice Gattefosse. While he was conducting research about how oils might aid healing, his arm caught fire and subsequently poured lavender oil onto it by accidental, which in turn caused the arm to heal faster, leaving no scar. Since that time, many have delved into how aromatherapy can help with physical and emotional healing.

Popular Uses

Some common uses for aromatherapy oils are as scents for homes and offices to help trigger relaxing feelings from occupants and to also help get rid of unwanted smells and germs. For example, lighting candles and burning wax chips made with aromatherapy oils can help rid a kitchen of smelly fried onion and other food smells.

A light fragrance can help welcome people home after a long day at the office. Popular scents are bergamot, eucalyptus, lavender, jasmine and rose.

Make Your Own Aromatherapy Inhaler

A homemade inhaler, that is very easy to stick in a pocket or purse is made by simply saving an empty chap stick tube. Wash out with hot soap and water to remove all traces of chap stick and let air dry. Next put a piece of cotton in the inhaler and measure the drops of essential oils for your blend directly on the cotton.

From “Free Yourself With Aromatherapy” by PK Enterprises You can use just one eo, or your favorite blend with this.

Dealing Naturally With Swimmer’s Ear

Swimmer’s Ear aka Otitis externa

Fun in the sun and splashing in the water. This is part of the summer ritual for just about all kids! But what can happen with all that water - especially if it gets in the ears and never really gets a chance to dry out?

Bacteria and fungus love moist, warm conditions and if the ears don’t really get a chance to dry out your child may develop Otitis externa - inflammation of the outer portion of the ear and canal. This problem can be mild to extremely painful.

With small or any children that complain of ear pain, please seek medical attention before using any aromatherapy or essential oil treatments. If the child has a perforated eardrum or an Otitis media (middle ear infection) you will not want to use any essential oils without consulting with your medical practitioner.

If indeed the child has swimmer’s ear you will need to keep them out of the water for a few days to give the inflammation or mild infection a chance to heal.
