Sep 13 2012 Being a teenager is tough.  Between dating, driving, and the pressures of school, today’s teenagers have a lot on their minds!  When you throw in all of the physical changes they’re going through — like growth spurts, acne, and the fact that the teenage brain isn’t even fully-developed yet — it’s a lot to deal with! If you’re looking for a way to help your teenager handle all of it in stride,  look no further than aromatherapy. I know just how effective aromatherapy can be in a teenager’s life.  I’ve got a 15 year-old son who sees all kinds of benefits from it! Of course, Juan-Martin is a lot more stubborn about trying new essential oils than he was a few years ago.  But, that’s to be expected.  After all, teenagers know everything — just ask them. Teenage stubbornness aside, even Juan Martin can’t ignore the perks he gets from aromatherapy.  Here’s how your teen can benefit, too:

If your teenager can’t seem to stay healthy:

My son always gets a cold a couple of weeks after school starts.  You can practically set your watch by it!  No matter how many Vitamins and Probiotics he loads up on to try to prevent it, it always shows up. Here’s what I do to make sure he’s all better in less than a week: –          When he gets in the shower, I give him a washcloth that’s got five drops of Eucalyptus essential oil on it.  I tell him to put the washcloth on his chest, allow the heat of the shower to release the vapors, take a few deep breaths, and relax.  Then, when his shower is over, I tell him to use that same washcloth to rub his body — especially on his arms and legs — with all of the motion going towards his heart.  That helps his circulation and lymph movement and gives his immune system a boost. –          Before he goes to bed, I grab a vaporizer, put 10 drops of Immune Support Essential Oil in it, and put it in his room. Immune Support Oil has Tea Tree, Ravensara, Niaouli, Lavender and Pine essential oils.

If your teenager can use a brain boost:

Aromatherapy can do a whole lot more for teenagers than just help them heal.  In fact, Juan-Martin uses it to help stay focused! After all, look at what teenagers have to distract them these days — everything from smartphones, to text messages, to video games.  It’s a wonder any of them can focus long enough to get good grades! So, when it comes time for Juan Martin to study, I give him a paper towel with two drops of Memoria Essential Oil Blend on it.  Because he’s stubborn and won’t always take the time to sniff it in while he works, I double-team him with an aromatherapy burner that’s got three drops of the same aromatherapy blend in it.  He likes the scent, so he doesn’t complain. On test days, I send him to school with another Memoria paper towel.  I tell him to sniff it while he’s taking his test, but, of course, he doesn’t!  (After all, “that’s awkward, Mom!”)  Instead, I settle for having him sniff it during breakfast. Memoria blend is made of Peppermint, Rosemary, Cardamom and Spearmint essential oils. Why am I so insistent about this? Our olfactory memory is much stronger than our visual or audio memories are.  By smelling the same scent during the test (or right before) as when he was studying, it’s like flipping a switch — he’ll be able to remember what he was studying the last time he smelled it!

If you’d like to strengthen your relationship with your teenager:

Aromatherapy has been a great way for my son and I to connect emotionally.  You know how it is when you try to talk to teenagers… “How was school?” “Fine.” “Do you have a lot of homework?” “Kinda.” “Do you have any plans for the weekend?” “Sorta.” That’s why, at least once a week, I’ll sit down with Juan-Martin while he’s watching TV.  Since he still loves the foot massages I gave him as a little kid, he’ll let me rub his feet.  In order to make the most out it, I use a blend of Lavender, Marjoram, Mandarin, and Palo Santo — calming oils that will help him sleep better.  When you combine them with Mom’s soothing massage, it’s the perfect way to release pain, anger, joy, and any other emotions that never come out during our normal conversations! During our foot massages, I learn all about his current challenges and the good things he has experienced recently.  It’s a great emotional health boost for both of us!

If your teenager is battling physical pain:

Aromatherapy can help more than your teenager’s emotional pain.  It can also help him fight through physical pain. If you’re the parent of a teenage athlete (Juan Martin loves tennis!), you know how much muscle tension can pop up.  Sometimes, Juan-Martin crashes down on my bed and asks for help! In order to give him some much-needed relief, I massage his legs, calves, and back with my Pain Begone Body Oil, made of  Birch, Lavender, and Peppermint.  It helps soothe his muscles, and it gives me another chance to show him just how much I love him! Even though they may “know it all”, a teenager’s life can be awfully tough sometimes.  If you want to make things a little bit easier, you can’t go wrong with aromatherapy.  Your teenager may not always thank you for it, but it’s a great way to give him some support! © 2012, CRISTINA PROANO-CARRION, AROMANDINA LLC THIS INFORMATION IS BASED ON TRADITIONAL USE OF AROMATHERAPY AND IT DOES NOT INTEND TO DIAGNOSE OR TREAT ANY CONDITION.

Aug 22 2012 As an aromatherapy expert, people are constantly asking me which is better — burners or diffusers.  Personally, I’ve always worked with burners and had great results. However, all of these questions made me wonder if I was missing out on something.  Is it possible that I could have made my aromatherapy experiences even better over the years by using a diffuser instead of a burner? That’s when I decided it was time to set out on a quest for the truth!

Here’s what I already knew:

An aromatherapy diffuser (also called a “nebulizer”) spritzes a mist of essential oils around the room.  A burner, on the other hand, heats up the essential oils so that they evaporate and fill the room. Look around the web, and you’ll see lots websites that claim diffusers are better because they break down the molecules in essential oils and make them smaller. However, this isn’t true — and this was only the first important piece of information I learned from my research! What really happens is that the diffuser takes a liquid that’s chock full of essential oils and turns it into tiny droplets so that it has an easier time floating through the air in your room.  But just because the droplets are physically smaller doesn’t mean that the molecules inside of them are smaller.  The truth is, their molecular structure doesn’t change one bit! So, what about the burners? Aromatherapy burners are two –tier objects, with a top bowl –like section for putting the water and essential oil, and a lower section for the teal-light candle which heats the water above.  As the candle heats the water, the essential oils and water evaporate. Essential oils don’t burn.
“Inhalation does not have to be complicated. As a matter of fact, the easier one keeps the procedure the more likely it will have benefits.Kurt Schnaubelt – The Healing Intelligence of Essential Oils

So, which is better — a burner or a diffuser?

Both offer similar therapeutic benefits.  The main purpose of a burner or diffuser is to dispense a therapeutic aromatherapy treatment to a number of people at the same time. It is an excellent way to administer the uplifting, relaxing or energizing effects of the essential oils you chose. Did you know that diffusing essential oils in rooms and houses can lower the count of airborne germs?  This is great to reduce the risk of infections especially in public spaces! Both the burner and the diffuser provide a peaceful and uplifting atmosphere in the room where you have them. Bottom line, what is more important is the quality of the essential oils or essential oil blends that you use, more than the method of diffusing their wonderful properties. In the end, whether you use a burner or a diffuser all comes down to your personal preference. Don’t let sales copy fool you!  You don’t need a certain piece of designer equipment to see the benefits of aromatherapy!

Aug 10 2012 If you’ve taken a look around Aromandina.com, then you know I credit aromatherapy for giving me my greatest gift — my son.  But getting a fertility boost isn’t the only thing you can get from aromatherapy.  It’s also a great mood booster! If you’re looking for an all-natural way to improve your emotional well-being, read on.  You’ll be amazed at what aromatherapy can do for you! Instead of going through a detailed description of the science behind each essential oil, I’m going to share something much more powerful (and much more interesting!) with you — my own experiences with Aromandina products.

A happy store clerk

Take, for example, the woman who works at my local Office Max.  I was simply trying to stay refreshed during a run-of-the-mill afternoon errand, so I spritzed some Exulto Body Mist on my face and body. A few minutes later, a kind store employee offered to help me find the recycled paper I was looking for.  After that, she offered to make some copies for me — even though there were plenty of other employees in the copy department that could have helped me. As the copy machine was humming along, I noticed that this employee couldn’t stop smiling at me.  Finally, she asked me what scent I was wearing.  Before I could even open my mouth, this sweet employee threw her arms up in the air, walked around a bit, and told me that my scent reminded her of a walk in the forest! Funny, that’s exactly how I feel when I use Exulto, too! It was amazing to me how quickly this woman’s mood improved.  Even though she hadn’t spritzed herself, just getting a whiff of the essential oils in my Exulto Mist was enough to boost her emotional well-being — even if only for the few minutes she was talking to me! But that’s not the only memorable experience I’ve had with Exulto!

Better work relationships

I was talking to a lady one day about an upcoming missionary trip she was going on.  While she was looking forward to helping people, she wasn’t looking forward to working with her pastor — since he always seemed to disagree with her and belittle her ideas. I could see how anxious she was, so I handed her a bottle of Exulto and told her to spritz it on every time she was going to be near him.  I wasn’t sure if it would give him a change of mood, but I knew it would help her psychological well-being during the trip. After the trip was over, this woman told me that not only was the pastor nice to her, but he even told everyone to listen to her ideas because she knew what she was doing!

Grumpy old man

In my travels around town, I’ve even seen aromatherapy give marriages a boost! Not long ago, I was at a spa showing a woman different Aromandina products.  Out of the blue, she asked me how to handle a grumpy old man who never smiles… Sure enough, there was her husband, standing right behind her, and he looked anything but happy! Talk about feeling awkward! I grabbed a bottle of Alegria Blend, screwed off the lid, and told the man to sniff it.  “Grumpy” complied, and I asked him what he thought of the scent.  He didn’t say a word — because he was too busy smiling!  His wife was amazed! I wasn’t, though.  I’ve seen what aromatherapy can do for people’s emotional well-being.  I’ve seen it impact their hearts and minds.

What on earth makes these two products such a powerful way to boost people’s moods?

Both are made with a unique blend of three ingredients — Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, and Litsea Cubeba. Clary Sage is an essential oil that’s known for boosting moods and easing tensions.  It’s often given to people suffering from depression and mental breakdowns.  Because it has euphoric qualities, it can create sudden mood changes! Ylang Ylang is the perfect complement to Clary Sage because it has “cooling” properties that work perfectly with Clary Sage’s “heating” properties.  Instead of creating euphoria, Ylang Ylang squashes strong negative emotions — like anger, frustration, and irritability. When you add Litsea Cubeba into the mix — a sharp citrus scent — it creates a refreshing aroma that instantly relieves stress and depression.

So, how can you take full advantage of Exulto Body Mist and Alegria Essential Oil?

When you’re having one of “those” days, have your bottle of Exulto close by.  That way, you can spritz some on your face and body anytime the stress, pressure, and frustration start to get overwhelming.  Don’t be afraid to use this product liberally!  Since it’s all-natural, it won’t create the side effects that prescription mood boosters do. You can use Alegria to boost the energy around you.  When things start to get rough at the office, put 5 drops of Alegria onto your aromatherapy burner, fill the bowl with water, and light a tea candle.  As the scent works its way around the room, you’ll notice a definite change in your coworkers’ attitudes! Alegria can also make you a great host.  The next time you’ve got guests coming over, have a few aromatherapy burners on hand.  You’ll be amazed at how much fun people have! Remember — you may not be able to keep “little things” from popping up and sending you into a bad mood.  However, you don’t have to live with those negative feelings!  Instead, you can completely change your mood and uplift your emotional well-being quickly and easily with aromatherapy.

Does the container in your aromatherapy burner look like this?


I enjoy my essential oils diffused in the atmosphere but I don’t like it when they build up in the container. You’ll notice it happens more frequently when the essential oils you diffuse are cinnamon, patchouli and other dark colored essential oils.

There’s a very simple way to clean it:

  • Cover the area with liquid dish-washing soap
  • Cover the soap and the entire area with baking soda

  • Let it rest for a couple of hours
  • Scrub with very hot water and a  sponge

This is how it looks now:

The best advice: refill the container often while burner is on and to wash it after each use with dish-washing soap and hot water.
