Jojoba Oil (Simmondsia chinensis) is an evergreen bush found in North America. The oil is extracted from the bean. It is rich in vitamin E and is a unique liquid wax used as an oil. It is fine, penetrating, stable, and long-lasting.

Jojoba can be used as a face moisturizer or as a more luxurious oil for massage. Jojoba has a very close chemical composition to the skin’s own sebum. It is suitable for all skin types, beneficial for spotty and acne conditions, and is good for sensitive and oily skin. As it combines well with the sebum, it also helps to unclog the pores and remove any embedded grime.

Jojoba works to condition and restore the health of the hair. Because of it’s fine texture, it is easy to wash out and is ideal for combatting dandruff and dry scalp.

Aromatherapy Emotion Blends

A guide to using organic essential oils to treat emotions, using an aromatherapy emotion blend to enhance a positive result.

We hope that life won’t make us feel sad, angry, or stressed out. Unfortunately, it does. Aromatherapy can help you get a clear, calm, and relaxed mind that promotes positive thinking. “Don’t Let Your Emotions Run Your Life.”

How many of you suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)? I suffered from SAD for a very long time. When I was studying for my Aromatherapy Certification, I was over-joyed to find that essential oils could help with SAD. I put essential oils to work, for myself, instantly. After a few trials and errors, I found some blends that worked for me.

Try these unique aromatherapy blends to overcome your emotional situations. Blend the recommended essential oils and add 3 to 5 drops of the blend to water in an aroma lamp, diffuser, or oil burner.

Lift up your spirit :
2 drops of bergamot essential oil
2 drops of grapefruit essential oil
1 drop of orange essential oil
1 drop of frankincense essential oil

Eliminate your anger:
2 drops of cedarwood essential oil
2 drops of rose essential oil
2 drops of palmarosa essential oil

Balancing your busy life:
6 drops of peppermint essential oil
6 drops of lavender essential oil

Relaxation:
3 drops of marjoram essential oil
3 drops of thyme essential oil

Insomnia:
2 drops of sandalwood essential oil
2 drops of juniper essential oil
2 drops of ylang ylang essential oil

You can add bergamot for reducing depression, clary sage for calming tension, or marjoram for eliminating loneliness.

Bring Happiness, Laughter, and Sunshine into your Heart and Life.
