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.

Aromatherapy Tip of the Day – October 20, 2013

Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: October 20, 2013 is Treatments with Water and Essential Oils.

TREATMENTS WITH WATER AND ESSENTIAL OILS

Baths and Footbaths

Your daily bath is a most pleasurable way to use essential oils. Using essential oils in the bath, has a therapeutic effect on the body and mind. Make a blend with one, two, or three essential oils to 1/8 cup of carrier oil. Jojoba is the best Carrier Oil to use in blends for your bath. Add 10 to 15 drops of blend to a warm bath.

A morning soak with refreshing and stimulating essential oils, such as: Bergamot, Rosemary…will revitalize and refresh you for the day ahead.
1 Bath Relaxing

A bath, before bedtime, using relaxing and sedative essential oils, such as: Lavender, Frankincense…will help you get a restful sleep.

Baths are also beneficial for relieving muscular pain and tension.

Add your blend before getting in and swirl the water until the oils are evenly dispersed throughout the bath water. Relax and soak for 15 to 20 minutes, while inhaling the aroma of essential oils.

When a full bath is not available or convenient, footbaths can be a very helpful substitute. Add 6 to 8 drops of your chosen blend to a bowl of warm water and soak the feet for 10 minutes. Essential Oils penetrate through the feet very quickly and are good for colds, varicose veins, Athlete’s Foot, sore and/or painful feet, and swollen ankles.

Daily Prompt: B+

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Last Weekend

When did music become so calm and relaxing? The Mauldin’s new album, ‘Last Weekend’, is a delicate mixture of poetic laziness and bone-chilling coldness. Ice caps melted by the damp and dreamy lyrics, makes this album a good one to snuggle under the covers with.
