Mar 15 2016 Aromatherapy for Allergies
Well, not really, but once Spring comes with its beautiful weather, for many the dreaded allergy season starts too.

And we all know the symptoms, right? Runny nose, watery/itchy eyes, constant sneezing.  The allergy alarm bells go off thanks to the dry, fine and powdery pollen coming from trees like oak, birch and ash. 

Also very important to consider is that stress is known to play a very important role in predisposing people to respond allergically. 

The aromatherapy approach to allergy is to employ essential oils that have a noticeable physical relieving effect and that at the same time are calming and soothing.  While this treatment will not cure the susceptibility to the allergen, the symptoms can be minimized or they can be more bearable.

My favorite oils for allergies are Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Blue Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)and Niaouli (Melaleuca viridiflora) and they are all carefully put together in Aromandina’s Allergy Calm essential oil and Allergy Calm Roll On.

Just follow these steps:

  • Put 3 drops of Allergy calm Essential Oil on a washcloth.  Take the washcloth to the shower.While showering, place the washcloth on your chest and allow the heat of the shower to release the vapors of the essential oil.
  • After the shower, mix 1 tablespoon coconut oil with 6 drops of Allergy Calm Essential Oil and apply with massage in the hollow below the collarbone next to the breastbone and your arms, from the wrist to the shoulder in upper movements.

  • Roll Allergy Calm Roll On on the face: the sinus area, the side of each nostril, the bottom of the cheekbones and the base of the skull.  Press these points with your fingertips. 

You can keep your Allergy Calm Roll On at hand and use it freely during the day.

While this treatment will not cure the susceptibility to the allergen, the symptoms can be minimized or they can be more bearable.

Enjoy!

I was doing my annual inventory count which involves transferring the essential oil liquids from their container into a measuring cylinder to see how many milliliters I have. I simply love this annual task because it gives me an opportunity to connect with the wonders of essential oils all over again. On regular days, when we handle small bottles of these oils, we tend to forget their origin, the plant where they came from, and their color.

BLUE:

 

This inky-blue liquid that you see here is German Chamomile (Matricaria recutica).  If you have ever had a cup of chamomile tea, you would probably remember the color to be greenish or yellowish. Now, look again at this picture – doesn’t look like chamomile by a mile, right? 
One of the main components of German Chamomile is Chamazulene which gives this oil its blue color.  This component is not present in the fresh flower but is only produced during the process of distillation.

Chamazulene, present in some volatile oils, is markedly anti-inflammatory and antiallergenic.

Just by looking at the color of the oil, one can determine its therapeutic qualities:
– Since blue is a ‘cooling’ color, think about all the ‘hot’ conditions that this refreshing oil is going to counteract.
 – On the emotional front, blue chamomile has a very strong influence in soothing the solar plexus – the major nerve center located in the stomach area.
According to Gabriel Mojay, the solar plexus is the vital center of our psychological needs and wants.  When negative or ‘hot’ feelings like frustration, chronic tension and insomnia appear, the cooling blue effect of this oil helps in restoring balance.

In the physical plane, hot conditions such as irritable bowel, inflammation and spasms, can be easily relieved with the topical application of this oil when combined with a carrier oil.

RED:

Red, the warmest of all colors, signifies passion, heat and vitality
Red is extroverted, just like the substance in this bottle.  The absolute extracted from the Jasmine flower is a bright, sensual red and helps shed inhibitions.
It helps introverts come out of their shells and helps a couple revive the ‘heat’ in their relationship. It is very effective in driving away depression and fueling passion, libido and self-esteem when a person is feeling down and low.

ORANGE: 

 This orange liquid here is Sweet Orange essential oil.  This organic oil comes from Argentina and just by looking at its bright happy color, one can’t help but smile.
Orange i
s an uplifting, joyful oil.  It has a cleansing quality that clears a saddened heart and physically too, it helps purify the liver.
I use it in severa
l blends for digestion, and detoxifying because of its digestive, lymphatic, gastric and sedative properties.



So, the next time you hold a bottle of essential oil, think of the beauty of its color and the great emotional therapeutic properties that the plant is providing
to you.
