Jul 08 2010 In our excitement for the outdoors, we often become careless in protecting our skin from the harsh rays of the sun. Hats, sunglasses and sunscreens are easily forgotten when there are so many fun activities waiting out there. Little do we realize the vulnerability of our skin and the damage that could result from prolonged exposure to the sun. Last week my son went to the lake and silly me didn’t realize the sun was going to be so strong! He came home with severe sunburn and was so much pain that he couldn’t bear anything touching his body. Luckily for him, his mama always has some aromatic help at hand!

Here’s how I helped my son feel better with essential oils and you can do the same:

  1. I mixed 15 drops of Lavender, 15 drops of Peppermint and 4 drops of Niaouli oils with a teaspoon of salt and added it to a small bottle of distilled water.
  2. I then shook the bottle well and sprayed the concoction very liberally over the affected area. Peppermint, Lavender and Niaouli have anti-inflammatory properties and help to soothe the skin.
  3. Sun-burnt skin is very painful to touch but application of a good oil is necessary to nourish the skin and replenish lost moisture. I mixed 20 drops of Lavender oil with 5 drops of Frankincense oil in 1 oz of Jojoba Oil and drizzled it over the skin, spreading it with very gentle strokes.
  4. Finally, I used a light towel to do compresses. I added 10 drops of Lavender, 4 drops of Peppermint and 4 drops of Frankincense to a teaspoon of salt and mixed it in a bowl of iced water. I then immersed the towel, wrung out excess water and gently placed it on affected skin, especially the back. The cooling effect of the towel helped my son sleep better while the oils worked their magic on his skin. I recommend that you do compresses at least three times a day for best results.
The very next day my son started feeling a lot better and I could apply the jojoba blend more liberally. By the end of the second day, the pain had subsided and only a little bit of itching remained. On the third day, much to my relief, his skin returned to near normal and he was able to go about doing his work. Phew!

Apr 29 2009   Respiratory infections can catch us unawares but that does not imply that we overreact.  We would rather prepare ourselves adequately and make use of nature’s wisdom than panic unnecessarily! For centuries our ancestors have basked in the immunity-boosting benefits of natural essential oils. Some essential oils used in aromatherapy have been scientifically proven to ward of infections and disease causing organisms. Here are some of the essential oils that can be safely used and are very effective. They can  safeguard the health of your family by strengthening the immune system and alleviating symptoms of respiratory disorders:
  • Eucalyptus Globulus and Eucalyptus Radiata have powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties.
  • Niaouli and Tea Tree possess natural bactericidal, antiviral and fungicidal properties and are known to have a stimulating effect on the immune system.
  • Ravensara can be extremely helpful in relieving symptoms of whooping cough and sinusitis.
  • Pine is a natural expectorant and a very powerful pulmonary antiseptic.
  • Lavender is a natural antiseptic and analgesic which makes it an effective remedy for colds, coughs, catarrh and influenza.
Here's how you can use them, I always recommend to at blend at least two of them for more effectiveness:
  • Add 10 drops of essential oil to 2 tbsp of salt and mix it in your bath water.
  • Add 10 drops of essential oils  to a humidifier and keep it on all day.
  • Pour a couple of drops on your palm and inhale deeply, especially before entering a public place or flying.
  • Place a couple of drops of the oil on a tissue and wipe surfaces like door knobs, steering wheel, etc.
Why worry when Mother Nature has a solution for every problem? Aromandina Recommends: RESPIRO Immune Support is a unique blend of highly effective essential oils that perform diverse functions and may help protect the respiratory system from infectious assault.     Related Articles How to Use Essential Oils Part 1 Do Not Let Respiratory Infections Catch You Unawares Essential Oils for the Immune System
