I am a big fan of using essential oils in the shower and I know you are going to enjoy this method of application as much as I do because it is:

  • Effective

  • Safe

  • Practical

  • Pleasant

All you need is the essential oil or essential oil blend of your choice and a clean washcloth.  

Here is how you use essential oils in the shower and derive the maximum benefits:

  1. Before you get into the shower, think about the therapeutic properties and positive effects of the essential oil that you are going to use.
  2. Put 3 to 5 drops of the essential oil on the washcloth.
  3. While showering, place the washcloth on your chest and allow the heat of the shower to release the vapors of the essential oil.
  4. Breathe deeply, relax your mind and visualize the wonderful changes that the essential oils are bringing about in your mind and body.
  5. Once you turn the shower off, use the same washcloth to rub your body, specially arms and legs, with movements pointing towards the heart. This  helps stimulate circulation, lymph movement and your immune system

Which essential oils to choose?

  • For sinus congestion or blocked respiratory passages:

Eucalyptus Radiata, Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica), Pine (Pinus silvestris), Cypress (cupresus sempervirens), IMMUNE SUPPORT Essential Oil Blend

  • To wake up, clear a foggy brain and buckle up for the day. Essential oils for energy:

Spearmint (Mentha spicata), Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinale)

  • To start the day with energy and stimulate the adrenal glands:

Black Spruce (Picea mariana) , Rosemary(Rosmarinus officinale), Pine (Pinus silvestris), VIGOR Energia Essential Oil Blend

  • To have a happy, fun day filled with positivity and enthusiasm. Essential Oils for Depression and Anxiety:

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia), Lemon (Citrus limon), Grapefruit (Citrus paradisii), ALEGRIA Essential Oil Blend

  • To help you relax at bedtime and have a restful sleep. Essential Oils for Stress and Insomnia:

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Marjoram (Origanum marjorana), Mandarin (Citrus reticulata), Frankincense (Boswelia carterii), SERENO SLEEP TIME Essential Oil Blend

Parties are always something to look forward to but entertaining so many people at once can be daunting and even stressful at times.

It is not the clothes, decorations or even the food that makes a party a hit – it is the atmosphere.

A host cannot stop worrying about how the guests will get along with each other and whether they will have a good time at all. Luckily for you, we have a solution.

Take a break from the holiday stress and create a pleasant, relaxing, comforting and jovial environment for all your guests with a little help from aromatherapy.

Clary Sage and Ylang Ylang, help people shed their inhibitions and be themselves. While Clary Sage’s scent has a euphoric quality, Ylang Ylang works at eliminating negative emotions like jealousy and envy. They blend perfectly with Litsea Cubeba, a sharp citrus scent that integrates these two flowers and provide emotional well-being.

The heartwarming aroma of this blend induces a friendly and positive atmosphere and you will find your guests more spirited, relaxed and outgoing.

So the next time you are worried about awkward moments between a cousin and a colleague, you know what to turn to! How to do it? Pour a few drops in an aromatherapy burner you can also put some drops on the light bulbs. If you prefer mix the oils with some water and put them in a spray bottle and mist the area where your guests are going to be.

Spare no space for stress when it’s time to party and have fun!

Aromandina recommends: Alegria Essential Oil, a balanced combination of Litsea Cubeba, Ylang Ylang and Clary Sage.

Keep depression, grief and negative emotions at bay with this uplifting blend. This oil provides emotional well-being and work together to cheer up your mood and brighten your day. A happy mind is the key to happier relationships and success.

What’s your secret to be stress free when you host a party?

Nov 29 2010 This treatment is designed to assist in the flow of energy throughout the body, physically, mentally and emotionally. It particularly focuses on bringing peaceful balance to overworked adrenal glands.
It is ideal for clients suffering from chronic fatigue and adrenal exhaustion.

We will begin with a light, relaxing and gentle mist followed by a combination of alternating warm and cold compresses to your kidneys and adrenal glands. Following the compresses will be an invigorating massage.
As their adrenal glands are brought back into balance your body will reestablish its strength, vitality and sustained energy throughout the day.

Products in the treatment:

Energia Essential Oil
Alerta Body Mist
Adrenal Support Body Oil

Supplies on Hand:

2 Hand Towels

Room Set Up:

Hand towel soaking in crockpot filled with 1 tbs of table salt previously mixed with 5 drops of  Energia Essential Oil on low setting.
Hand towel soaking in bowl filled with cold water.

Table Set Up:

Set up the table for a massage 1 drop Energia Essential Oil on face cradle

Home Care Products:

Alerta Body Mist
Energia Essential Oil

Adrenal Support Body Oil
Memoria Essential Oil

Procedure:

  1. Start client prone. Mist your client’s body using Alerta Body Mist.   Hold the bottle 2 – 3 feet from client with the nozzle facing toward the ceiling and spray the mist upward. The mist will fall gently on the skin and feel like the mist in a rainforest.
  2. Wring out the hot water from the hand towel that is in the crockpot and lay over the kidneys and adrenal area. With a flat hand press the hot water into the adrenal tissue and gently rock back and forth.
  3. Wring out cold water from the hand towel that is in the cold water bowl. Before placing the hand towel on the client ask them to take a deep breath and let them know that on the exhale you will be placing an cold compress on their kidney area. The tendency will be for them to contract their muscles and hold their breath. Let them know it is better to relax and continue to exhale as the cold compress is placed over the kidneys. This will help them release the toxins and tension held in their body. With a flat hand press the cold water into the tissue.
  4. Alternate hot and cold compresses 3x each.
  5. Massage with Adrenal Support Body Oil using fast invigorating strokes. In your mind’s eye see your client full of energy and life. As you massage let that energy flow from your hands into your client.
  6. Turn client supine, mist and then massage.

Sep 09 2010 Ginger essential oil copy

As much as it is comforting and flavorsome in food, ginger offers a gamut of health benefits when used in aromatherapy. Known for its ‘warming’ properties, ginger essential oil acts as a tonic for the digestive system, joints as well as the mind.
Aromandina Ginger Essential Oil is obtained from fresh ginger roots organically grown and harvested in Ecuador.

Pregnancy

Ginger oil is safe to use in pregnancy and may be used to curb morning sickness or nausea caused by motion and stomach upsets.

Digestive properties

Poor appetite may be a result of something as simple as indigestion or something deep-rooted as depression. Ginger oil not only balances the digestive system, it also lifts up a lonely spirit with its spicy aroma. It can be especially helpful in alleviating gastric discomfort, flatulence and acidity.

The warming oil

Ginger oil is helpful during the long, cold winter months when many people experience depression, lethargy and loneliness due to the weather.  At these times, ginger oil adds the much needed spice and zest by energizing the body, improving sexual libido and helping the mind focus. Ginger oil also boosts circulation and provides instant relief from cold extremities and dull, lifeless skin.
Combine it with a carrier oil and  massage this warm oil for an excellent remedy for tired, achy joints or rheumatic arthritis.

Psychological properties

According to author Peter Holmes, “Clearly just as ginger provides deep warmth and stimulation on the physiological level, its fragrance works deeply into the psyche bringing energy and strength to some of the deepest sources of our power”.[1]
In moments of pessimism and low morale, ginger essential oil serves to motivate the mind and help it find direction.
If you have strong plans for the future but lack willpower or confidence to go through with them, ginger essential will inspire you to be proactive and take consequential action.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine has forever used Ginger as a remedy for ‘moisture induced’ maladies like diarrhea, rheumatism and catarrh. The warming properties of ginger are believed to neutralize the ill effects of dampness and moisture which may have an intrinsic or extrinsic source.

Methods of use

  • For instant relief from nausea, depression and lethargy, take a few sniffs of the oil from a tissue.

  • Add it to hot water and use it as a compress for sore joints and achy muscles.

  • Ginger oil can be combined with carrier oil and used for massage.

  • Use it in a diffuser to spice-up your surroundings.

  • Don’t apply the oil directly to your skin and avoid going out in the sun after topical application.

Enjoy Ginger Essential Oil in the following Aromandina products:
Body Oil for Circulation
Digestive Body Oil
Fiesta Essential Oil Blend

Jul 04 2010 The infinite uses of essential oils never cease to amaze me. If you love basking in the outdoors during summer, I have some great aromatherapy tips and tricks for you. My husband and son love to play tennis and soccer around this season and it is of course my responsibility to shield and protect them from the heat!

Here is a simple and effective aromatherapy recipe that I have always used and I believe it will be of great help to you too:

  • Take 1 teaspoon of salt in a bowl
  • Add 4 drops of your chosen essential oil and mix well
  • Pour in some cold water and stir till the salt dissolves completely
  • Soak a few face towels in the solution for a while and wring out the excess water
  • Keep these wet towels in a zipper bag and store them in the fridge (They will keep for about a week).
  • Use them to wipe your face and body while playing outdoors or after a vigorous summer workout. It will instantly make you feel refreshed and invigorated.
Here are some oils that work amazingly well for this recipe: Spearmint and Peppermint possess natural cooling and refreshing properties. These oils can help you concentrate better on your activity. Cardamom helps in maintaining focus and keeps you alert, especially if you are out playing a challenging sport. Rosemary, with its spicy scent, infuses you with energy and keeps your outlook positive so you perform better. Lavender has natural antibacterial properties and is a great way to keep germs and body odor at bay. Its clean floral scent is just perfect for outdoors! If you find it difficult to make a choice, I suggest you try out Aromandina’s VIGOR Memoria Blend that has all these oils in a single bottle! I personally like to use these essential oil infused towels while working in the garden. Wrapped around my neck area, they really help maintain my body temperature even when the heat gets too much. I also keep a chilled towel handy during my morning runs as it helps me stay refreshed and motivated even on lazy days. A good workout blend can help improve your health and fitness by keeping you motivated, energized, refreshed and focused during physical and outdoor activity.   Related Articles Fix That Sunburn with Essential Oils Keep Your Sinuses Clear Feel Great During the Winter Season © 2010, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC
