Eucalyptus essential oil
If there is anything clean, refreshing and energizing at the same time, it has to be Eucalyptus Essential Oil. I suggest everyone should have a bottle in their cabinet because it is so versatile and has SO MANY USES! 

I have personally used it in many of my aromatherapy products such as the Winter Blend, Fiesta, BUZZ-OFF Insect Repellent Aromatherapy Spray, Immune Support Essential Oil and Body Oil, RESPIRO Andean Bath Soak. It’s probably easy for you to guess that I am really, really fond of Eucalyptus.

What is Eucalyptus?

Aug 11 2010 Everywhere in this country, children from preschool up to college are preparing to go back to school. All that  change, separation, anxiety and peer pressure may be, at times, too much for young people to deal with. Naturally, it is quite common to find children and young adults a little nervous or edgy around this season. As adults, we can  help and support them by  providing a calming and reassuring atmosphere with the use of essential oils. Create your own “Child Soothing Massage Oil”: 1 4 oz bottle of Carrier Oil 10 drops of Lavender essential oil 10 drops of Bergamot essential oil 10 drops of Mandarin essential oil 10 drops of Cypress essential oil. Add them to your carrier oil shake well and use this oil to give your child a loving massage in the evenings. If they are not used to massages, you can start by gently applying the oil to their hands –  just a small amount is enough and will be well absorbed through the skin. Many parents found that  the massages helped their children feel more at ease and stay healthier. Massage time is a great way to bond with your child. The caring touch of a parent can help children outgrow their fears, anxiety, anger and frustration.  A massage can induce a peaceful night’s sleep so that your kids wake up in a good mood  and are ready to start a new day. I also like to have them rub this blend on their solar plexus area, while they do that, tell them to visualize that all the worries and fears go away. What are your thoughts?

Aromatherapy for ADD

When I used to talk at a radio show in Ecuador, I would choose themes that would provide helpful tips to listeners.  During my experience I discovered that as the first school trimester was coming close to its end, parents were nervous about their children failing the tests.  I talked about the benefits of using essential oils that not only stimulate the nervous system but are cephalic as well, meaning that they improve memory and concentration.  Hundreds of mothers tried out the essential oils and reported after the school exams that the oils definitely helped.

The essential oils for memory and concentration are: Spearmint Essential Oil: restorative, strengthens memory, stimulates the mind Peppermint Essential Oil: stimulates nerves and brain, improves concentration and study Cardamom Essential Oil: fortifying, tonic of brain and nervous system Rosemary Essential Oil: clears the mind, sharpens the memory and boosts the nervous system

A solution for lack of focus and motivation

Based on that experience, I combined all those oils into a single product, Memoria Essential Oil

I tried it first when my son when he was in 4th grade and was having problems with his spelling tests. While he was learning and memorizing the spellings, he sniffed a tissue that had 2 drops of the Memoria essential oil.  The next day, right before school, he took a few sniffs of the oil again and carried the tissue to the exam room.  When the exam came along, he was able to identify with the familiar smell and relate it to the moments when he was studying. 

This helped him immensely in recalling what he had learned the previous day and gave his memory an instant boost. As a result of this simple therapy, he ended up with straight A’s in spelling.
Memoria is now a part of our every day routine at home. I put 5 drops of the essential oil in an aromatherapy diffuser on his desk – this  helps him finish his homework faster without getting distracted. 
Whenever he comes looking all groggy to eat breakfast, I spray Vigor Body Mist a couple of times on his face to help him gear up for his day at school. This method can be very helpful for children with ADD and ADHD and to anybody needing some extra help with their concentration.

Jul 08 2010 In our excitement for the outdoors, we often become careless in protecting our skin from the harsh rays of the sun. Hats, sunglasses and sunscreens are easily forgotten when there are so many fun activities waiting out there. Little do we realize the vulnerability of our skin and the damage that could result from prolonged exposure to the sun. Last week my son went to the lake and silly me didn’t realize the sun was going to be so strong! He came home with severe sunburn and was so much pain that he couldn’t bear anything touching his body. Luckily for him, his mama always has some aromatic help at hand!

Here’s how I helped my son feel better with essential oils and you can do the same:

  1. I mixed 15 drops of Lavender, 15 drops of Peppermint and 4 drops of Niaouli oils with a teaspoon of salt and added it to a small bottle of distilled water.
  2. I then shook the bottle well and sprayed the concoction very liberally over the affected area. Peppermint, Lavender and Niaouli have anti-inflammatory properties and help to soothe the skin.
  3. Sun-burnt skin is very painful to touch but application of a good oil is necessary to nourish the skin and replenish lost moisture. I mixed 20 drops of Lavender oil with 5 drops of Frankincense oil in 1 oz of Jojoba Oil and drizzled it over the skin, spreading it with very gentle strokes.
  4. Finally, I used a light towel to do compresses. I added 10 drops of Lavender, 4 drops of Peppermint and 4 drops of Frankincense to a teaspoon of salt and mixed it in a bowl of iced water. I then immersed the towel, wrung out excess water and gently placed it on affected skin, especially the back. The cooling effect of the towel helped my son sleep better while the oils worked their magic on his skin. I recommend that you do compresses at least three times a day for best results.
The very next day my son started feeling a lot better and I could apply the jojoba blend more liberally. By the end of the second day, the pain had subsided and only a little bit of itching remained. On the third day, much to my relief, his skin returned to near normal and he was able to go about doing his work. Phew!
