Wet, Windy and Wild Weather

February 2021 in all its tumult still affords opportunity to reflect inside while the weather is wet, windy and wild outside.  There is a lot of psychological baggage emerging from the continuous lock-down, masking, distancing and anti-social activities.  Not the norm at all.  Still these times can be opportunitties to indulge yourself and your family in some goodness from the earth.   This month I'm adding a few suggestions that are easily made and the whole family can participate in the process to  create joy, laughter and peace....let's have some DIY fun!  Of course, use caution in application to children under 12 years of age.  Always dilute, dilute, dilute...some oils have very strong aromas. 

The following oils can be topically applied or diffused [in hot water or diffuser] : Bergamot, Cedarwood, Chamomile, Clary Sage, Frankincense, Geranim, jasmine, juniper, Lavender, Marjoram, Orange, Rose, Sandalwood, Tangerine and Ylang Ylang

Room Spray: [10-30 drops Essential Oil to 4-8 ounces of spring or rain water, or no more 15 drops to two ounces carrier oil].

Anxiety:  [10-30 drops Essential Oil to 4-8 ounces of spring or rain water, or no more than 15 drops to two ounces carrier oil]. 

The bath: [generally 5-15 drops in running hot water] add baking soda or epsom salts

Inhalation:  [one long sniff {both nostrils] directly from the bottle] & [dime-size in the palm of your hand, rubbed together & inhale

Foot bath:  [2-6 drops to 8-16 ozs of very hot water]

Massage: [10-30 drops in 30ml carrier oil] - [1-3 drops essential oil per 5ml carrier oil is adequate]  The benefits of massage are both ...  physical and  psychological.

Sleep:  [1-2 drops of essential oil on pillow] [1-2 drops of essential oil in black tea w/honey & lemon]

You or your family may require more intricate blends for specific physical and/or psychological situations.  As a Certified Aromatherapist, I can guide you toward the most appropriate oils should your situation transcend the general applications above.   

I would love to hear about the blends that you come up with for any of the suggestions given, or the blends that you come up with on your own.  No right or wrong answer... just enjoy oils!

Best Ever,
