Aug 10 2011 Thank you all for showing interest in the article on Helichrysum or ‘Everlasting Oil’ that I posted a few days ago. Many readers have mailed in saying that they would like to start using this oil but do not know how to go about it. Here, I have compiled some easy-to-use aromatherapy recipes and solutions that will let you reap all the positive benefits of this amazing oil on an everyday basis.  

Uses of Undiluted Helichrysum Oil

For hematomas: Helichrysum is known for its ability to dissolve blood clots and promote healing of surrounding tissues. Apply this oil neat (undiluted) over the affected area every day. For cuts and burns: Helichrysum possesses anti-inflammatory and tissue-regenerating properties. Apply a couple of drops neat on the affected area to soothe the irritated skin and aid healing.

Uses of Diluted Helichrysum Oil

You can make your own Everlasting Oil blend by adding 10 drops of Helichrysum to 1 oz of any carrier oil such as Jojoba.  This blend is useful for treating many common ailments. For headaches: Rub a few drops of the blend between your fingertips and massage your temples and back of the neck with it. For asthma and bronchitis: Massage some of the blended oil onto your chest. For irritable bowels: Massage your lower abdomen with the blend twice a day. For pain relief: Massage the blended oil into sore muscles and inflamed joints using circular motions. For skin care: With your fingertips, apply a few drops of the blended oil onto clean, dry skin. Use light pressure and slow press-and-release movements. The oil nourishes the skin and is very effective against wrinkles. For Anxiety and Depression: Before going to bed, apply the blended oil to your solar plexus, and allow all negative emotions to be released. Helychrisum oil can help heal deep psychological wounds and emotional scars. I hope you enjoy using this oil. Please let me know if you have any queries – I will be very happy to answer them!

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 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:

Aromandina’s Woman’s Joy treatment is intended to provide relaxation and comfort with the pampering qualities of feminine essential oils: geranium, lavender and clary sage.

This treatment begins with a gentle mist followed by a soothing oil designed for reestablishing mood balance and relaxation, and then a warm compress to the abdomen. We will pay particular attention to the head and scalp relieving any tension that tends to focus there. After the treatment we will recommend a home routine so that the client can continue the benefits of the Woman’s Joy treatment throughout the month.

Products in the treatment:

RADIARE Essential Oil
ALEGRIA Body Mist
Woman’s Help Body Oil

Supplies on Hand:

  • 2 Hand Towels
  • Crockpot

Room Set Up:

  • Crockpot filled with water on low setting with 5 drops of RADIARE Essential Oil
  • Have 2 hand towels soaking in crockpot water

Table Set Up:

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

Home Care Products:

RADIARE Essential Oil
ALEGRIA Body Mist
Woman’s Help Body Oil

Procedure:

1. Start client supine. Mist your client’s body using ALEGRIA 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 abdomen area. Repeat with other towel. This compress helps to release accumulated tension in that area.
3.  Massage with Woman’s Help Body Oil .   In your mind’s eye see your client completely balanced, relaxed and supported. Communicate that in your touch.
4. Turn client prone, mist and then massage.
