Background-Autumn
Head to your local grocery store or flip on the TV, and you’ll see a definite shift. Autumn is in the air, and retailers want you to be well aware of it! That’s why you’re seeing endless commercials and endless in-store displays of pumpkin-spiced everything, apple cider, and warm teas.

It’s natural to want to warm up this time of year. As Mother Nature starts to cool things off, that glass of iced tea doesn’t seem so appealing. Instead, a warm cup of tea or a spicy glass of warm cider feels heavenly.

And, luckily, you can warm up your energy just like you warm up your beverages!

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, several essential oils create a special warming energy. In addition to a spicy scent, they’ll actually give your lungs a boost — which will help you breathe easier, help you feel more alert and awake, help you develop a more positive attitude, and help enhance your immune system.

Here are the essential oils you should be taking full advantage of this Autumn:

Cardamom
Cinnamon
Cedarwood
Eucalyptus
Fennel
Ginger
Juniper
Laurel
Marjoram
Pine
Rosemary
Tea Tree
 
Best of all, you can use them in a variety of ways. Combine a few of them to use in your aromatherapy burner or diffuser to give your entire home a warm energy boost.
Or, create your own Autumn massage oil by mixing 45 drops of your favorite essential oil with 4 ounces of Therapeutic Carrier Oil.

Want to take the spa-like treatment a step further? Add a few drops of your favorite oil to a warm bath that will soothe your senses and your stress level. (Just avoid Cinnamon, Fennel, Ginger, and Marjoram, because they can irritate your skin!)

If you want to blend a few scents together, consider adding Orange or Mandarin to the mix. These uplifting scents have a more neutral energy, so they won’t overpower the warmth you’re getting from your Autumn oils.

Or, if you want to leave the blending to someone else, get a bottle of Aromandina’s Autumn Blend. Carefully blended with spicy warming oils like Cardamom and Ginger, this blend will warm up your entire environment, protect you from the colds and infections that always seem to be lurking this time of year, and allow you to fully enjoy everything that Autumn has to offer!

No matter what time of year it is, you’ll find the perfect assortment of quality essential oils at Aromandina!

Mar 16 2010 Eucalyptus is one of the more widely recognized essential oils. Perhaps it is best known as a decongestant inhalation for colds and respiratory congestion but is also useful in many more ways. Thirteen different species were introduced in Ecuador in 1865, and have been used for their multiple medicinal properties since then. Eucalyptus grows well and abundantly in Ecuador because of the unique climate. Eucalyptus is cooling, refreshing and energizing. Traditional folk medicine has used its cooling effect to ease feverish conditions. Breathe in Eucalyptus deeply and feel your chest open, your posture become more erect and experience the ease of seeing things from a different perspective. “My grandfather used to have a huge property where he planted hundreds of Eucalyptus trees. We used to run through the woods and liked to  hold the eucalyptus leaves in our hands and breathe deeply. We always cut big branches of Eucalyptus and put them under our beds to protect us from catching a cold. This was specifically useful during the cold weather. (Yes, Ecuador has cold weather in the mountains).  If we were sick, my mom would put the Eucalyptus leaves directly on our chests and backs and covered with a warm sweater before going to sleep, the next day we always felt a lot better. At Aromandina, we import the Eucalyptus essential oil that is produced in small batches from communities in Ecuador, the scent, the purity always brings me back to my childhood and now I can help many people with Eucalyptus healing properties.” Benefits: Eucalyptus is an immune stimulant which assists people who are tired, run down and/or prone to frequent colds.  Aromatherapy for Immune System. Aromatherapy for Colds and Flu.
