Stress bombards us on a daily basis.  Whether you’re stressed out over that big work project, something your kids did, or the mess in the kitchen, it’s a miserable way to live.  You wind up feeling exhausted, getting a headache, and even suffering tummy troubles.

Luckily, though, there’s an easy way to knock stress right out of your life — aromatherapy!

People are constantly asking me which essential oils are best at combating stress, and the truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all recipe that will combat every single type of stress you encounter during the day.  That’s why I came up with three different essential oil blends that can help you eliminate stress throughout the day — without making you feel groggy or foggy.

Here are 3 easy ways to incorporate stress-busting aromatherapy into your daily routine:

  1. -  Start your day with the ENERGIA blend.  Simply squeeze a drop onto the palm of your hand, rub your hands together, and breathe in this invigorating scent.  It’s made with rosemary, litsea cubeba, and pine — all of which will make you feel alert and focused.

  2. Give yourself a mid-day boost with the ALEGRIA blend.  The mixture of clary sage, ylang ylang, and litsea cubeba will calm you down and put a smile on your face — without the side effects that you get from sedatives.  I like to use this blend in either a burner or diffuser, but you can also squeeze a few drops into a tissue and breathe it in that way.

  3. Ease your way into the evening with the SLEEP TIME blend.  Made with Lavender, Marjoram, Mandarin, and Palo Santo, this blend will stop all of the racing your mind has been doing and leave you feeling calm, relaxed, and ready for a great night’s sleep.  I love to squeeze a couple of drops onto a tissue and place it under my pillow.  By morning, I feel incredibly refreshed!

-  If you really want to pamper yourself, I’ll mix 10 drops of SLEEP TIME with a cup of Epsom salts, mix it with a tub-full of warm water and soak in it. 

-  If you don’t have time for a long, leisurely bath, squeeze four drops of SLEEP TIME onto a washcloth, close your eyes, and press it up against your chest while standing in a hot shower.  After a few deep breaths, you’ll be able to feel your stress going right down the drain!

It’s easy to bid bon voyage to stress… All you have to do is buy Aromandina’s De-Stress Aromatherapy Kit!  Or, buy it for a loved one and give the gift of relaxation!

Out of all our senses, the sense of smell probably gets the least attention. But the latest research is about to change that perception! Researchers at University of Chicago recently carried out a study that establishes a strong link between olfactory senses and longevity. 

Here, the scientists used 5 odors (fish, leather, orange, rose and peppermint) to conduct a smell test on 3000 individuals aged between 57-85. Participants were given scores based on how accurately they could identify the smells.

Autumn is a season of transitions. As the year nears its end, it is time to pause and reflect on the months gone by and reassess our goals. Have we accomplished all that we set out to? Has our health been good? Have we been successful in relationships and at work?

Unfulfilled goals may sometimes leave us flustered and desperate, but don’t forget – there is still time and you can still make it! All you need is some reassurance, positivity and hope –and all these come bottled up in the Autumn Blend.

As the weather gets colder, I feel the need to use “warming” oils that can not only help me breathe better but also make me feel more energetic. A little known oil in this regard is Black Spruce. I have been quite enamored by its soft, fresh, forest-like scent and what it can do for the mind and body.

What is Black Spruce?

A member of the Pinaceae plant family, Spruce is a close cousin of firs, pines and hemlocks. There are over 40 species of Spruce but not all offer therapeutic benefits. Black Spruce (Picea mariana) is an evergreen coniferous tree native to Canada, although it also grows in some parts of Alaska and North America. It is typically found in wet, swampy regions. The sharp, bluish-green needle-like leaves of the tree are the primary source of essential oil, which is extracted through the process of steam distillation. Black Spruce essential oil has a much milder, sweeter scent compared to other oils from the evergreen family.
