Rosemary, Lavender, Sage Foot Cream

March 17th, 2007

This formula is perfect for dry skin on feet. Rub it in well after a softening foot bath. Use Beeswax granules as they dissolve much faster than solid blocks of Beeswax which have to be grated to melt quickly.

Melt the Beeswax and cocoa butter in the top half of a double boiler over boiling water, stirring gently until the wax has dissolved completely. Warm the Apricot oil in another small pan and add it slowly to the first mixture, beating constantly. Remove from the heat and add the Essential Oils and Evening Primrose oil. Pour into small jars or tins and store in a cool, dark place to keep it fresh

Aromatherapy and Hair Growth

March 17th, 2007

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.

So now you’re wondering, “Can Essential Oils really work to help grow hair?” Well, a study was performed by Scottish researchers who had half their patients massage a blend of Essential Oils in Jojoba oil into their scalps before shampooing. The other half of the study group only got Jojoba oil to massage on in the same manner. After seven months 44% of the patients using Essential Oils had significant improvement in their Hair Growth. The control group who only used the Jojoba oil showed a 15% improvement. Check out our recipe section to find out what they used!

Scottish Hair Growth Formula

Massage this blend into your scalp and allow it to sit for 15-20 minutes before shampooing off. Better yet, do it before bed and shampoo off in the morning!

  • 10 drops Rosemary (Rosemarinus officianalis)
  • 10 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)
  • 6 drops Cedarwood (Cedrus atlantica)
  • 4 drops Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)

Add oils to Jojoba in a glass or plastic bottle, shake well and massage 2 tsp into scalp. Shampoo off. Dry and style hair as usual.

Healthy Hair and Scalp Final Rinse

Keep this blend handy each time you shampoo!

  • 5 drops Rosemary (Rosemarinus officianalis)
  • 3 drops Lavender (Lavendula angustifolia)
  • 2 drops Sage (Salvia lavandulaefolia)
  • 1 litre water

Add Essential Oils to your container of water and shake well. Pour over head working into scalp and through the ends of your hair as a final rinse. Do not rinse out.

Dry Scalp Massage oil

Feels like your scalp had a trip to the spa!

Gently warm Jojoba oil (double boiler or microwave) and add Essential Oil. Stir (or shake if in sealed container) gently to blend. Massage into clean scalp and work oil through to the ends of the hair. Wrap hair in plastic wrap and a warm towel for 20 minutes. The heat will allow the oil to better penetrate the hair shaft. Shampoo out as normal afterwards.

Aromatherapy and Children

March 17th, 2007

As in case of adults, aromatherapy works wonderfully in case of children too; a cool aromatic bath in a tub is always eagerly awaited by your children.

Many Essential Oils can be used to treat many ailments and conditions of your growing children. How ever, care must be taken in treating children with Essential Oils, although there are many numbers of safe ones. If used in original Concentration, oils may work adversely and cause skin burn and irritation.

Most common dosage for any aromatic oil would be one-third to one-half the adult dose, or a 1-percent dilution (five or six drops of Essential Oil per ounce of Carrier Oil), and don’t forget that citruses may irritate the skin.

Chamomile, Melissa and Fennel are usually used as massage oil, or taken as herb tea. These oils are known to soothe a variety of tummy-aches-and the problems that can lead to stomachaches, such as frayed nerves, Anxiety and over excitability. More common problems like Colic, gas pains, and nausea and food Allergies are also treated by oils.

A Chamomile, Fennel and Melissa herb tea with Licorice helps stop crying and fussing in infants with Colic. Essential Oils relieve muscle spasms caused when babies swallow air as they eat. Herbal gripe water is still being used all over the world to get rid of Colic pains. A carminative water mix contains Fennel, Chamomile, caraway, Coriander and bitter Orange peel, all known to kill bacteria and relieve Flatulence.

Most digestive problems are reduced by a simple tummy massage using one of the oils. Tummy-Rub Oil can be formulated as follows:

Mix together and massage the tummy gently.

A suggested treatment for children before bedtime is a warm Lavender and Chamomile Essential Oil bath. Most children just love taking aromatherapy baths, particularly if they have their own personal blends. Popular fragrances include Orange, Grapefruit and Tangerine - all antidepressants and relaxants.

Nature’s gentle but powerful relaxant Teas such as Melissa, Lavender and Chamomile have the property to calm a nervous, over-stimulated, over-excited child, make Headaches go away and gently induce sleep.

Placing a cool compress of Lavender on the forehead will give much needed relief from a headache, Sleeplessness or over-exertion. Frankincense used as a vaporizer or as massage oil is safe and effective for respiratory congestion or infection.

Other safe Essential Oils for children include Mandarin, Marjoram, Neroli, Jasmine and Pettigrain. Tea of Yarrow, Catnip, Peppermint and Elder Flower are known to reduce the symptoms of measles, Chicken Pox or mumps; Ginger with a touch of Lemon juice is also effective.

The soreness of mumps is lessened by syrups and gargles made from Teas of Thyme, Rosemary or Sage. Antiviral oils made from Melissa and Bergamot has proven effective against the mumps and chicken-pox viruses. For Teething Pain in toddlers and young children, give Chamomile tea and rub the gums with a little diluted Clove oil on your finger.

The following formula may be used for swollen tonsils, mumps and other lymphatic swelling in the neck area:

Neck Wrap

Mix the water with the Essential Oil. While the water is still warm, soak a soft cloth, preferably flannel, in the water and wring it out. Wrap the cloth around the neck. Cover with a towel to hold in the heat. Remove before it gets cold. Repeat as many times as you wish.

Essential Oils are universal in nature, as they are known to work in every condition, in all times of the year. Essential Oils prove very handy in times of distress and need; a few drops of Essential Oil are all needed to reduce the symptoms in children.

Olive Oil - Not Just for Cooking

March 17th, 2007

Olive Oil is a rich non-drying oil suitable for use in various cosmetic applications. Olive Oil can be used in a range of skin preparations including massage and bath oils, Moisturizers, ointments and balms, Soaps, shampoos and herbal infusions.

Olive Oil’s chemical free nature makes it suitable for those who have allergic reactions to substances used in mass-produced Soaps. Olive Oil Soap produces a hard Soap that dries quickly, is mild and non-drying to the skin, has a rich creamy lather and lasts longer than most other vegetable, animal and mineral oil Soaps.

Despite their many benefits the cost of ingredients and production will keep Olive Oil-based cosmetics at the higher end of the market. Cheaper olive oils and blends can be used, however the trade-off for reduced price is a loss of quality.

Even if you do not eat it, Olive Oil is an amazing health remedy. According to researchers, putting extra virgin Olive Oil on your skin after sunbathing could protect you from ultraviolet radiation. It is not a sunscreen, but Vitamin E and other Antioxidants nab free radicals caused by the sun before they do too much harm. Just make sure you use extra virgin � regular Olive Oil is not as effective.

Emollients containing Olive Oil are useful in Psoriasis, excema and dermatitis treatment; they slow the loss of water through the skin layers. The thicker the cream or lotion, the more effective it is likely to be.

Maintaining adequate moisture can relieve the pain of dry skin and reduce scaling and inflammation, without causing any side effects. Regularly applying thick lotions and creams directly to the skin is sometimes very effective in clearing the symptoms.
