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

Jun 23 2010 Does the very thought of traveling send you into a tizzy? Many people complain of stress, fatigue and sickness during flights. At times, something as minor as a car ride can make people feel queasy and drained.  A sniff of essential oils can make the whole experience of traveling brighter and more pleasurable. If you have been a frequent traveler, you would probably be familiar with problems like:
  • Motion sickness
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Respiratory infections and allergies
  • Digestive troubles like flatulence, constipation and acidity
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Fatigue and body ache
  • Sleep disturbances
Fear of the unknown, susceptibility to illness, being away from home and change in routine – the causes of travel-related stress can be many. If you are wondering why you keep falling sick every time you venture out, here are some factors that may help you zero in on the cause:
  • Prolonged periods of stress raise the level of the hormone cortisol in our blood which in turn lowers the body’s natural immunity. This makes a person vulnerable to infections and illnesses.
  • The lack of fresh air in flight cabins coupled with close proximity with other passengers puts us at risk for contacting contagious diseases.
  • Germ-infested hotel rooms and stale air can cause allergies and infections.
  • A change in diet can wreck havoc on a fragile tummy and result in discomfort and upsets.
Aromatherapy allows us to tackle these common travel woes by adopting a multi-dimensional approach. Essential oils when used individually or in combination with other oils can enhance immune functions, elevate the mood, support digestion and even calm down fussy kids! Choose essential oils that are appropriate for your problems.  Here is a selection of essential oils that should always be a part of your travel kit:
  • Eucalyptus radiata oil has strong anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties. It is a great bet for travelers who feel drained and are prone to colds and infections. Carry a vial with you and take a whiff every once in a while.
  • Tea tree oil, a potent antiseptic, makes for a great hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available. Rub a drop or two between your hands after using public washrooms or touching contaminated objects. It is also an effective remedy for insect bites.
  • Ravensara oil is an ideal choice for relief against pain, muscle cramps and sprains. It also helps boost natural immunity. Use it in bath water or tie a oil-infused washcloth on the showerhead.
  • Lavender oil is well known for its de-stressing and calming properties. It helps in regularizing sleep patterns and relaxes the mind. Lavender is also effective against colds and flu. Use it with a steam inhaler or put a few drops of it on a tissue and tuck it under your pillow. You may also apply an infused washcloth over your face to open up blocked sinuses.
  • Mandarin oil is a natural antiseptic, anti-spasmodic, digestive, antidepressant, sedative and nervous relaxant. It is a one-stop solution for people that are bogged down by nervousness and stress during travel. Its diuretic properties reduce bloating and water retention – a common complaint during travel. Inhale from a tissue that has been infused with a few drops of the oil.
  • Ginger oil is effective with  indigestion, vomiting, nausea and flatulence. It may be used in combination with massage oils or in a steam inhaler.

Traveling with kids

It can be a challenge if children get cranky and irritable during a long journey and may even fall sick due to change in climate and physical stress. Here are some essential oils that can help your kids overcome the stress of traveling:
  • Lavender oil has a calming effect on the mind and can aid a peaceful night’s sleep. Put two drops on a tissue and tuck it under pillow case.  For long flights, put a couple of drops on a tissue and have children smell from it.
  • Fennel Oil alleviates symptoms of stress and hyperactivity, it’s also a great home remedy for constipation and stomach upsets. Combine 3 drops of this oil with a teaspoon of olive oil and apply to tummy with circular movements. You can also put a few drops of the oil in warm water, soak a hand towel and apply on the stomach.
  • Sweet Orange oil possesses natural uplifting, detoxifying and rejuvenating properties.

Jul 08 2009 I just came back from a wonderful 4th of July at the beach.  My family and I enjoyed the sun but we got some sunburn on our backs and shoulders. Fortunately I was prepared, and all the discomfort like irritation, itching and even pain went away in a matter of hours. Here’s what you need: Add  30 drops of the RESPIRO Allergy Calm Essential Oil to the Therapeutic Body Oil.  Apply liberally after sun exposure to nourish the skin, prolong the tan and soothe the sunburn. If the skin is too sensitive to the touch, you can add 20 drops of the RESPIRO Allergy Calm essential oil to a pump spray filled with water to lightly spray the skin on a regular basis until skin is healed. The essential oils in the Allergy Calm blend, Lavender, Chamomile, Amni Visnaga, Hyssop posses calming, soothing, balsamic and anti-inflammatory properties. Give it a try!
