W is for Warts, Withdrawal, and Wrinkles

Most all of us get warts at some point in our life. To treat a wart, the essential oil must be placed directly to the wart, while trying to avoid the healthy skin surrounding the wart. The essential oil should be neat, (Undiluted, No carrier oil needed, Straight from the bottle). I use a clean q-tip dipped into the essential oil. Essential oils to try for getting rid of warts include: Lemon or Tea Tree. Use one essential oil, four times a day, for one week. If you do not get results, try the other essential oil. One of them should do the trick.
For very stubborn warts try the following recipe:
Mix together the following essential Oils (No carrier oil is needed):
6 drops Lemon
6 drops Tea Tree
3 drops Thyme
Swirl gently until all oils are thoroughly mixed.

Do you, or a person you know, often become withdrawn emotionally from social activities and/or life? Try the following recipes:
Treatment is by bath, (8 to 10 drops), Wear as a body perfume, and add, (3 to 5 drops), to a dish of water in an Aroma Lamp, Diffuser, or Oil Burner. Use the above methods every day, until you are released from withdrawal.
Add the following essential oils to 1 ounce carrier oil of your choice:
15 drops Bergamot
15 drops Marjoram
15 drops Ylang-Ylang

Eucalyptus Essential Oil, (Eucalyptus globulus), comes from the tall Eucalyptus tree. The essential oils are steam distilled from the leaves. It is colorless, with a penetrating camphoraceous aroma. It acts as an analgesic, making it useful for reducing fevers.

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 and Colds

Aromatherapy and Colds

Aromatherapy and colds treatment can be started at the earliest sign of colds.
Aromatherapy is a holistic approach to health and wellness by using essential oils. Essential oils for colds can protect us from microbes in many different ways, from keeping the space around us naturally microbe-free, preparing our immune system for defense, and destroying the microbes once they’ve entered our bodies.
You can turn on an electric diffuser, light up an aroma lamp, or use an oil burner when you get the first symptoms of colds. Diffusing the room with the right essential oils can eliminate your cold quickly. Essential oils for the immune system prevent you from catching colds in the first place.
1 Aroma Lamps
Although there are many essential oils you can use to heal colds and flu, I prefer to use Eucalyptus (eucalyptus globulus) essential oil.
Eucalyptus essential oil which has cineol or euclyptol as an active ingredient and it will help greatly in relieving clogged nose and the other symptoms of cold. This oil can act as an air disinfectant, an antiseptic and a bactericide agent.

Aromatherapy and Colds Recipes

Following are some recipes for aromatherapy and colds treatment:

For Inhalation:

Boil the water in a cup and add a few drops of Eucalyptus Globulus. Place a towel over your head. Eucalyptus is a strong substance so it is important to close your eyes when you do this to avoid irritation. Inhale slowly for five to ten minutes. Do this two or three times a day until your symptoms subside.

Chest Congestion Rub

A blend of 4 drops of Eucalyptus globulus and 2 teaspoon of Emu oil can be used for back and chest congestion rubs. Use it twice a day.
Or you can use a blend of 3 drops of eucalyptus, 3 drops of peppermint, and 3 drops of Bay Laurel with 2 ounce of olive oil to rub your neck, throat and chest.

For Bath Treatment

Relieve the aches and pains associated with Cold and Flu with a nice hot soak in a therapeutic bath. Add 10 drops eucalyptus globulus essential oils to a hot water (102° to 104°F) and soak around 15 minutes.
Take this bath before you go to bed, warm yourself after taking this bath and take a good rest.

Hopefully tomorrow you will be ready to do your activity again!

For Aromatherapy and Colds Air Diffuser

A combination of eucalyptus, rosemary, thyme and lemon in your preferred ratio to achieve a desirable intensity and or mildness may be made. Use only eucalyptus when you need to clear your cold.

NOTE:Prolonged use of eucalyptus may have certain effects to the liver.

CAUTION: Do not use eucalyptus oil on children under 6 years.

Essential Oils for Colds

Other essential oils for colds:

Below is a list of essential oils with high levels of phenol and has notable antibacterial properties. These essential oils can heighten resistance to respiratory-related ailments:
• Lavender (Lavandula Augustifolia)
• Peppermint (Mentha Piperita)
• Rosemary (Rosemarinus Officinalis )
• Frankincense (Boswella carteri)
• Lemon (Citrus Limonom)
• Ravensara (Ravensara Aromatica)

When choosing your own self-healing methods as part of your natural health treatment program, it is important to choose the proper essential oils for each situation. The ratio of the essential oil may also be adjusted according to the sensitivity of the person subjected to the therapy.

Aromatherapy Tip of the Day – January 3, 2014

Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: January 3, 2014 is a continuation of The Angelic Fragrances.

ANGELIC FRAGRANCES
1 A Angelic Fragrance  www.thecandlemakersstore.com 2

THYME
Thyme Essential Oil is strengthening and gives us courage when courage and strength are needed to overcome fear and disillusionment. Use Thyme Essential Oil when you need to call upon the deity for physical assistance. During visions and dream states messengers bring insights of our physical obstacles, and insights of how to overcome them.

Ylang Ylang
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil is calming and soothing for those with troubled minds and who find it difficult to like themselves very much, or forgive themselves, but who need to forgive and to find a place in their hearts to love themselves. Ylang Ylang Essential Oil aids us in looking at this wonderful world we have been given, with love and understanding that we are all beautiful and a part of it.

There are several more essential oils that are Angelic Fragrances, but I did not have them posted in https://mauldinfamily1.wordpress.com/aromatherapy-information-about/spiritual-and-magical-properties-of-essential-oils/ which needs to be revised. I will be working on updating this page and then complete the Angelic Fragrances.

I’m also thinking of moving my Aromatherapy Blogs to a page of it’s own. This will be a time consuming task, so keep a watch out for it.
