Natural remedy for cystitis
Those who suffer from cystitis know how painful and debilitating it can be. Cystitis can be described as an inflammatory condition that affects the bladder and sometimes the urethra. You probably have cystitis if you face:

  • A frequent urge to pass urine
  • Sharp pain and burning sensation while urinating

The worst part about cystitis is that if not treated properly, it keeps coming back!

Most conventional treatments for cystitis involve antibiotics. While antibiotics help curb the infection, they also destroy the “good bacteria” in the vagina that are so essential for women’s reproductive health. Antibiotics may also give rise to “resistant strains” and cause the infection to recur frequently, leading to a chronic condition. This creates a dreadful cycle of cystitis – antibiotics – cystitis that is extremely traumatic.

If you are prone to frequent attacks of cystitis, you can stop the next one right in its track. Here’s what to do at the first sign of irritation:

  • Drink plenty of Chamomile tea (which has anti-inflammatory properties) at frequent intervals and avoid caffeinated drinks.
  • Increase your intake of fluids to flush out the bacteria from the bladder.
  • Use COOLING ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND to prevent a full-blown attack.

COOLING essential oil blend is specially formulated to provide relieve from inflammatory conditions like Cystitis. It combines Bergamot, Lavender, Tea Tree and Niaouli, all of which have strong antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. I particularly love this blend because it is so safe, effective and easy to use.

Here’s how you can use it at home:

1)   Sitzbath:




  1. Mix 6 drops of COOLING with 1 cup of plain yogurt (be sure it does not contain any sugars or starches)
  2. Fill a bath up to hip level, add this mixture and sit in it for least 15 minutes.

 2)   Sea Pearls or Tampons




  1. Add 6 drops of COOLING to 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda and dilute this in 2 ½ cups of warm water.
  2. Soak a Sea Pearl in it and insert into the vagina.
  3. Do this daily in the morning, and change the sponges every 6 hours.
  4. You can also use an organic tampon.

3)  Massage

  1. Combine 3 drops of COOLING and 3 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil with 1 tablespoon of Carrier Oil.
  2. Massage your lower back an lower abdomen twice a day 
While this blend will give you instant relief from symptoms, it is important to remember that infections don’t go away so easily. Continue using the blend for at least ten days to get long-lasting relief.

COOLING ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND

Note: If your condition is severe and taking antibiotics becomes necessary, you can still use this blend alongside medical treatment. Not only is it safe, it will actually ease the inflammation and help restore the natural flora of your body.

Buzz Off Insect Repellent
Summer is full of outdoor fun – camping, hiking, picnics, barbeques…and pesky little bugs. An insect bite can sure ruin the most perfect summer day – not to mention the host of diseases that these critters carry. So what are you doing to keep yourself and your family safe this summer?

There are loads of insect repellants available off the shelves but most of them contain DEET (N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide), which is known to irritate the skin and pose a risk of toxicity, especially in young children and pets.

As a parent and pet-owner, you are probably looking for all all-natural, chemical-free solution that is safe, effective and hypoallergenic.

Well, BUZZ-OFF  Aromatherapy Spray is all that and more!

  • Active ingredients such as Lemongrass, Rosemary, Eucalyptus Citriodora, Catnip, Peppermint and Sweet Lavandin are super-effective on mosquitoes, flies and fleas.
  • Aloe Vera soothes and nourishes the skin.
  • 100% DEET-free – use it as much and as often as you like.
  • Perfectly safe for babies and pets.
  • Convenient spray bottle allows for easy, mess-free application.
  • Smells better than most insect repellents you have used before!

You don’t have to scratch and swat your way through the summer, and neither do you have to subject yourself to harmful chemicals.

As the temperature goes up, so does the number of activities you want to do. After all, summer was made for hanging out on the beach, hosting cookouts, and moving your workout out into the sun at the local park. But all of those scorching hot days can do a number on you. If you really want to have a cool summer, you’ve got to keep yourself cool!

Luckily, it’s easy to do with the right blend of essential oils!

Aromatherapy is one of the best natural remedies for summer’s heat because it cools you down without creating any strange side effects.

We want you to enjoy your time outdoors, so we have created a special recipe to help.

Natural remedy to prevent heat stroke and heat exhaustion

My first essential oil blend of choice is SUMMER BLEND.

It’s a great way to stay cool with aromatherapy, because it contains spearmint and lemongrass — all of which have natural cooling properties! These essential oils  can eliminate the germs on your skin that you get on a hot, sweaty day, along with making your mind a little sharper.

Here’s a simple compress method for you:

  1. Mix 4 drops of Summer Blend with 1 tsp of salt in a bowl. 

  2. Fill bowl with iced water

  3. Soak a towel into the mixture, wring it out

Did you know that such a day exists? Neither did I!

The Storytelling Manager of Ford Motor Company contacted me on Friday and told me about this day.  The conversation that followed was so interesting that I though it would be great to share it with my readers:

Good morning, Cristina

My name is Dan Mazei, and I work in the communications team at Ford Motor Company. I realize an e-mail from Ford may sound strange, but I swear I have a good reason to be reaching out today.

I’m not sure if you know, but this Saturday is National Sense of Smell Day. As odd as that may sound to most people, I’m sure you can appreciate a day that recognizes our built-in ability to improve our lives through smell (like with essential oils and aromatherapy). 

With this in mind, Ford partnered up with the world’s foremost experts on scent, ScentAir, to come up with the Top 7 Aromas for a Less Stressful Drive – the little things we can do to make our commutes, errand runs, road trips and family vacations more relaxing and comfortable.

I’d love to send you the full list, if you’re interested. These are not products, but rather general scents your readers could go out and apply on their own. I think they’d really enjoy seeing this. 

Please let me know your thoughts when you can.

This obviously got me very curious as I wanted to find out more about those scents and what they are for.  Dan sent me the complete list and although I am not a fan of artificial scents, I was very pleased a big company like Ford Motor Company would be interested in making that connection for drivers, pleasant scents that can help them have a pleasant drive. 

After reading the draft, I did send him some suggestion and noted that Mahogany for instance is not a natural scent, and that I would not use Vanilla and Sandalwood for an evening drive as I would fall asleep on the wheel.  I also mentioned to him that I am not a fan of artificial scents and I would definitely not enjoy driving with those scents.

I think that we could use the same concept using natural essential oils and I  would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions on how would you replace this scents with natural aromatherapy essential oils.

Driving. It’s a daily imperative for the vast majority of us; a function that’s as ingrained into our routines and getting dressed or making breakfast.

In fact, Harvard Medical School once postulated that the average American spends up to 614 hours a year driving. If we spent the same amount of time – almost 12 hours every week – sitting in our living rooms or laying in our beds, we’d want that time to be as comfortable as possible. Right?

Driving is impacted by a lot more than the car in front of you, or the construction on the expressway. Like most other aspects of our daily lives, we have the power to make every one of those hours driving more pleasant and enjoyable – and one simple solution is right in front of (or, between) our eyes.

Tomorrow (Saturday) is National Sense of Smell Day. While the day may not be circled in red on your calendar, it’s a reminder that smell is one of the most important senses we have.
In honor of this occasion, Ford Motor Company has tapped into the unique expertise of ScentAir, the largest scent marketing company in the world, to help drivers – and your readers – take full advantage of their good ol’ fashioned…olfaction…with the Top 7 Aromas for a Less Stressful Drive, no matter where they’re going:  
CFPL00021_Sense_of_Smell_rr_C06

  • Mahogany: The aroma of this durable, tropical tree species comforts the mind, while imbuing a sense of productivity that will help drivers feel more empowered – whether on their commute to work, or simply running to pick up some takeout food

  • Ocean: The smell of the ocean not only helps to make every trip feel like a vacation, but the light and soft aroma also brings to mind cleanliness and freshness – two feelings that contribute to a more positive outlook. How does that sound for that stressful drive home?

  • Vanilla and Sandalwood: The combination of these warm and rich classics will create an environment of warmth and comfort, perfect for an evening drive with that special someone or for a weekend getaway road trip

  • Fig: It’s not just the centerpiece of a time-tested cookie, but an ancient delicacy that helps every moment to feel like a journey – an especially useful scent for running errands or other trips that may otherwise seem mundane and tedious

  • Basil: From pizza and pasta to summertime drinks, basil never fails to deliver. It’s equally as useful in the car, inspiring the mind to wander for those long holiday drives or lengthy vacation road trips

  • Summer Grass: This familiar scent offers a refreshing and invigorating quality that can liven up those drives to the gym, the office or an evening event, when you could use a little boost to stay on your A-game

  • Eucalyptus and Mint: The partnership of these stunning, fresh aromas make for a perfect morning drive. Whether it’s a bumper-to-bumper dance with commuters, or cruising through the quiet streets at sunrise, the scents will make for a softer and deeper experience
