Aromatherapy can give you some big-time benefits, but only if you approach it the right way. Things like Facebook and Pinterest have given everyone a platform to share information — but, unfortunately, most people aren’t aromatherapy experts. That means they may be giving you advice that’s downright dangerous!

I’ve got formal aromatherapy training, and I’ve spent more than 15 years practicing as a certified aromatherapist. As a result, I know that some of the advice you see floating around out there can come with serious consequences.

Like what?

Take lemon oil as an example. You’ve probably seen people spouting off all the benefits of it, but if you add even just a few drops into your water glass and drink it on a daily basis, it can burn your mouth, esophagus, and digestive tract! Yes, essential oils are all-natural, but their chemical composition can be toxic if you don’t use them the right way.

So, what IS the right way to use essential oils?

If you want to make sure you’re using your essential oils safely, stick to these 5 rules:

Dec 16 2014 how to avoid holiday stress
As much fun as it is to deck the halls and unwrap presents, the holiday season can also be incredibly stressful.  Between finding time to bake gooey goodies, buying budget-friendly gifts, and entertaining countless family members, it’s no wonder you’re feeling frazzled!

Luckily, though, the right aromatherapy regimen can get you through it.  Here’s what I recommend doing to eliminate all of that holiday stress:

1.  Breathe

A little bit of fresh air can go a long way — especially when you combine it with the right essential oils!  Squeeze a drop of Eucalyptus radiata or Winter Blend (with Eucalyptus, Lavender and Grapefruit essential oils) onto your scarf, and head outside for a 10 minute walk.  As you breathe deeply, you’ll start to feel more positivity.  That’s because eucalyptus physically and emotionally opens up your chest, so you’ll get even more of that awesome fresh air than you would otherwise.  And, because eucalyptus is a proven mood-booster, it will quickly knock out your stress.  It’s a powerful 1-2 punch!

2.  Take a bath

Does anything feel better after a long, stressful, cold day than a warm bath?  No way!  But to get the most out of your bath, add 1/4 cup of Aromandina’s Andean Bath Soak to the water.  Made with mineral-rich pink Andean salts, soothing Epsom salt, and relaxing essential oils, you’ll be able to soak away all of the stress.  I like to call it “cleaning your heart”!

You can take this bath time indulgence a step further by choosing an Andean “flavor” that’s right for you.  For example, ALIVIO is great for soothing sore muscles, while EXULTO is especially uplifting.  SERENO is the perfect way to help us have a restful sleep, and RESPIRO can open up your sinuses as you fight off those pesky winter germs.  Or, if you want to turn bath time into couple’s time, opt for ROMANCE.  No matter which one you choose, all of your holiday stress will go right down the drain!

3.  Keep your energy level high

Sounds easier said than done, right?!  Luckily, though, having enough energy to survive the holidays is as easy as misting your face.  I created ALERTA body mist to be a pick-me-up that works in seconds.  No matter how busy you are this holiday season, you’ve got a few spare seconds!  ALERTA is made with peppermint, spearmint, cardamom, and rosemary, so it can stimulate both mind and body.  Personally, I use it all the time — like while I’m driving, cooking, and working.  That way, I have all the energy I need, without filling my body up with caffeine-laden coffee.

Want the same success? You can use all of the stress-busting products I use by shopping at Aromandina!

Natural remedy for cystitis
Those who suffer from cystitis know how painful and debilitating it can be. Cystitis can be described as an inflammatory condition that affects the bladder and sometimes the urethra. You probably have cystitis if you face:

  • A frequent urge to pass urine
  • Sharp pain and burning sensation while urinating

The worst part about cystitis is that if not treated properly, it keeps coming back!

Did you know that such a day exists? Neither did I!

The Storytelling Manager of Ford Motor Company contacted me on Friday and told me about this day.  The conversation that followed was so interesting that I though it would be great to share it with my readers:

Good morning, Cristina

My name is Dan Mazei, and I work in the communications team at Ford Motor Company. I realize an e-mail from Ford may sound strange, but I swear I have a good reason to be reaching out today.

I’m not sure if you know, but this Saturday is National Sense of Smell Day. As odd as that may sound to most people, I’m sure you can appreciate a day that recognizes our built-in ability to improve our lives through smell (like with essential oils and aromatherapy). 

With this in mind, Ford partnered up with the world’s foremost experts on scent, ScentAir, to come up with the Top 7 Aromas for a Less Stressful Drive – the little things we can do to make our commutes, errand runs, road trips and family vacations more relaxing and comfortable.

I’d love to send you the full list, if you’re interested. These are not products, but rather general scents your readers could go out and apply on their own. I think they’d really enjoy seeing this. 

Please let me know your thoughts when you can.
