Oct 25 2011 Here’s a very healthy low calorie antioxidant smoothie to enjoy every day. I like to prepare the pumpkin the night before so that it is ready to use in the morning

Ingredients:

¼ small pumpkin baked 1 cup plain yogurt 1 scoop protein powder 2 drops fresh ginger essential oil cinnamon powder Stevia or brown sugar to taste Blend together pumpkin, protein powder, yogurt, stevia and ginger essential oil. Enjoy. How to bake the pumpkin
  1. Preheat the oven on 350 F.
  2. Seed and cut 1 small pumpkin in 4.
  3. Place pumpkin, face up, in a shallow baking dish.  Sprinkle with a little cinnamon
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes, or until pumpkin is very tender.
  5. You can put the pumpkin pieces in a container and store it in the refrigerator; you will only need 1 quarter pumpkin for each smoothie.

 Health benefits of pumpkin

The distinctive bright orange color of pumpkin clearly indicates that it’s an excellent source of that all-important antioxidant beta-carotene. Research shows that people who eat a diet rich in beta-carotene are less likely to develop certain cancers than those who fail to include beta-carotene-rich foods in their diet. Pumpkin also has another carotenoid, beta-cryptoxanthin, which may decrease the risk of lung cancer in smokers.*   *Source http://health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/food-nutrition/natural-foods/natural-weight-loss-food-pumpkin-ga.htm   © 2011, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC

Throughout history, fragrances have always been an inseparable element in love and romance. Whether it is Cleopatra dousing herself and her surroundings in rose essence to seduce Mark Antony or eastern maharajahs sniffing on a bunch of jasmine as watch their courtesans dance, fragrances have had a large part to play in igniting passions and sensuality.

The use of essential oils in lovemaking is nothing new, but today, we know that it is much more than a tradition.  Scientific research carried out by neurologist Alan Hirsch at the Smell and Taste Treatment Research Foundation in Chicago has proven that certain scents are shown to have a powerful effect on our olfactory lobe, which is a part of the limbic system that houses sexual desires. Different scents seemed to produce varied levels of arousal in men and women, with Lavender and pumpkin pie ranking the highest! Even skeptics will agree that a nice smelling environment is conductive to romance and lovemaking – the scent of essential oils in a diffuser can elevate the mood and set you up for a passionate interlude.

Physical and emotional factors such as vaginal dryness, poor body image, stress and past traumas can be detrimental to sexual desire and confidence. Essential oils work in myriad ways to heal the body and mind. They balance out the chakras (energy centers) and stimulate the sacral chakra, which is located at the pubic bone.

The following essential oils are known to enhance sexuality and they work equally well for men and women:

Jasmine, with its sharp and sensual scent, has been used by generations of Indian women to entice their partners.

Ginger has a warm and hearty aroma that recreates a cozy atmosphere for a couple and makes lovemaking last longer.

Cardamom fills up the senses with its spicy and intoxicating fragrance and is a definite turn-on.

Ylang Ylang is strewn on the beds of newly married South-Asian couples on their wedding night – need we say more?

Grapefruit refreshes and energizes the senses, especially if you have been feeling down and low.

Cedarwood, with is woody aroma, is reassuring and infuses warmth into the atmosphere.

Clary Sage acts as a tonic for the female reproduction system and boosts sexual confidence.

Rose is almost synonymous with love and romance. Its fresh, floral scent is a powerful aphrodisiac.

You may use these oils in numerous ways to spice up your love life:

1.    Pour a few drops into your bath water and let the aromas penetrate deep into your senses.
2.    Add a few drops of essential oils to carrier oil and use it an intimate and erotic massage with your partner.
3.    Light unscented candles all over your room to set the mood for romance. Candles also add warmth to your surroundings.
4.    Sprinkle a few drops on your bed sheet and pillow cover so that the scents stay with you all through those special moments.
5.    Use these oils in a burner at home to make every corner inviting and enticing.

As much as it is comforting and flavorsome in food, ginger offers a gamut of health benefits when used in aromatherapy. Known for its ‘warming’ properties, ginger essential oil acts as a tonic for the digestive system, joints as well as the mind.
Aromandina Ginger Essential Oil is obtained from fresh ginger roots organically grown and harvested in Ecuador.

Pregnancy

Ginger oil is safe to use in pregnancy and may be used to curb morning sickness or nausea caused by motion and stomach upsets.

Digestive properties

Poor appetite may be a result of something as simple as indigestion or something deep-rooted as depression. Ginger oil not only balances the digestive system, it also lifts up a lonely spirit with its spicy aroma. It can be especially helpful in alleviating gastric discomfort, flatulence and acidity.

The warming oil

Ginger oil is helpful during the long, cold winter months when many people experience depression, lethargy and loneliness due to the weather.  At these times, ginger oil adds the much needed spice and zest by energizing the body, improving sexual libido and helping the mind focus. Ginger oil also boosts circulation and provides instant relief from cold extremities and dull, lifeless skin.
Combine it with a carrier oil and  massage this warm oil for an excellent remedy for tired, achy joints or rheumatic arthritis.

Psychological properties

According to author Peter Holmes, “Clearly just as ginger provides deep warmth and stimulation on the physiological level, its fragrance works deeply into the psyche bringing energy and strength to some of the deepest sources of our power”.[1]
In moments of pessimism and low morale, ginger essential oil serves to motivate the mind and help it find direction.
If you have strong plans for the future but lack willpower or confidence to go through with them, ginger essential will inspire you to be proactive and take consequential action.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine

Traditional Chinese Medicine has forever used Ginger as a remedy for ‘moisture induced’ maladies like diarrhea, rheumatism and catarrh. The warming properties of ginger are believed to neutralize the ill effects of dampness and moisture which may have an intrinsic or extrinsic source.

Methods of use

  • For instant relief from nausea, depression and lethargy, take a few sniffs of the oil from a tissue.

  • Add it to hot water and use it as a compress for sore joints and achy muscles.

  • Ginger oil can be combined with carrier oil and used for massage.

  • Use it in a diffuser to spice-up your surroundings.

  • Don’t apply the oil directly to your skin and avoid going out in the sun after topical application.
