Mar 21 2012 If you treat sleep as an indulgence and not a bare necessity, it’s time to rethink your priorities. Do your body a favor and give it the rest and recuperation that it so needs. Need a little push? Help is at hand with the SERENO range from Aromandina.  We have a couple of basic tricks on how to fall asleep naturally. Create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere at home with these super-effective aromatherapy blends containing Lavender, Mandarin, Sweet Marjoram, Sandalwood and Palo Santo..
  • Add SERENO Andean Bath Soak to your bath.   An aromatherapy bath is a great opportunity to seize the day, let the tension of your body melt and to visualize that all your worries go through the drain.  Tomorrow will be a new day!
  • Spray your pillow and face with SERENO Body Mist for a night of restful sleep. If you wake up in the middle of the night, just spray your face a couple of times and breathe deeply.  This will help you go back to sleep again.
  • Massage the back of your neck, the soles of your feet and your solar plexus area with Sleep Time Body Oil to release all the stress and anxiety. We tend to store our tension, irritability and frustration in the solar plexus area.  A soft massage on that area will help relief that accumulated stress or repressed emotion.

Dec 19 2011 Did you know the olfactory nerves that allow you to smell, directly connect to the limbic region of your brain where emotions and memory are stored? Neurologist Alan Hirsch’s research has proven that certain scents are shown to have a powerful effect on our emotions.

Mar 30 2011 One of the things I love about aromatherapy is that it uses the two senses that are most connected to the heart – the sense of smell and the sense of touch. Being from Latin America, I’m quite used to greeting friends with kisses and hugs, to touch and be touched, without feeling awkward or uncomfortable about it. That’s why moving to the United Sates came as sort of a culture shock. It took me some time to get accustomed to the more formal social etiquette and I had to sometimes stop myself from jumping to hug the person I was greeting. I have always been amazed with the power of our tactile senses and its incredible healing qualities. These qualities increase in potency when combined with the application of essential oils. I recently read an article on CNN that describes the benefits of touch for better mental, physical and emotional health. Scientific studies have proven that the simple massage can increase the number of white blood cells in our blood and help our bodies fight infection. The act of hugging, being hugged or holding hands is not only comforting and reassuring, it also stimulates the release of Oxytocin, the feel good hormone, that uplifts our mood and brings about a general feeling of wellbeing. Intimacy with a loved one is known to alleviate stress, anxiety, loneliness and depression. Our sense of touch is a divine gift that we must use towards our wellbeing as well as that of our loved ones. You can read the complete article here:

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.

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?
