I came so close to making it through all of 2015 without getting sick. And then as luck would have it, a nasty cold hit me like a ton of bricks at the beginning of the year.

I should have seen it coming. After all, I had been the hostess for Christmas dinner AND a New Year’s party. I had family members flying in from all over the place. And to top it all off, business at Aromandina was booming.
Unfortunately, my body could only take so much. All of the stress took its toll on my immune system, and I paid the price!

Of course, I followed my own advice and immediately grabbed some cold-busting essential oils, but my poor body wanted something more. After everything I’d put it through, it was begging for some “me time”, and I knew just what to give it — an aromatherapy bath.

It only took two of these baths to make me feel like a brand new person. Not only were my cold symptoms diminished, but I felt completely relaxed!

Before you dive into your own bath, there is one important thing to remember — dilute your essential oils first with a simple emulsifier: heavy cream. That way, they’ll mix into the bath water instead of just floating on top of it!

So which oils work best in an aromatherapy bath?
There are plenty of choices, which is why I created this chart. No matter which combinations you go with, combine a total of 10 drops with two tablespoons of heavy cream.
Here are some of blends I suggest:

Worries Down The Drain: use this when stress and anxiety build up
3 drops Vetiver
2 drops Frankincense
5 drops Lavender

Flower Vacation: use this feminine floral scent to boost your self-esteem and overall mood
5 drops Geranium
3 drops Lemon
2 drops German Chamomile

Grounded and Pampered: use this to get rid of those erratic, wandering thoughts
5 drops Cedarwood Atlas
2 drops Palo Santo
3 drops Bergamot

Walk in the Woods: use this to fight exhaustion, stimulate your circulation, and help you breathe easier
5 drops Bay Laurel
5 drops Black Spruce

A few final tips:
– Sprinkle in 1/4 cup of Epsom salts to help alleviate pain
– Play some relaxing music
– Light some (unscented!) candles
– Have a thick towel, a comfy robe, and cozy slippers waiting for when you’re done
– Drink some chamomile tea as your tub fills up
– Use one of Aromandina’s Body Oils after you pat yourself dry

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.
These are simple steps, won’t take a lot of your precious time and you deserve it!

Night – Night!

Aromatherapy for Labor
The benefits of aromatherapy during labor are immense. Essential oils can make the experience as pleasant and easy as possible for both the mother and the baby by creating a relaxing, comfortable and stress-free environment for labor. Essential oils diffused in the delivery room will help cleanse the air and provide a familiar and welcoming scent for the baby.  Recommended Oils to be used during childbirth are: Lavender and Clary Sage are essential oils that promote peace and relaxation. Inhale this oil between contractions for enhanced strength, stamina and endurance levels during delivery. Labor Massage: As soon as contractions set in, ask your partner or friend to help you with a firm massage onto your lower back.  The combination of aromatherapy and massage will help ease muscular pain and impart a feeling of confidence and reassurance. Have this blend of oils ready at least one week before your due date. 4 oz of carrier oil 8 drops lavender 8 drops clary sage 8 drops geranium 5 drops fennel 5 drops grapefruit Pour ½ teaspoon of your LABOR BLEND on the palm of the hand and massage the lower back as often as needed. I first discovered the therapeutic benefits of this aromatherapy blend when I gave birth to my son. Ever since, I have been able to help many women cope with pregnancy and delivery.  The results have always been consistent – women have reported a general feeling of well-being and confidence.  The aromatic oils infuse a sense of self-assurance and minimize the pain.  The essential oils in this aromatherapy blend  are helpful because they:
  • Relieve anxiety and fear
  • Improve  circulation and breathing
  • Infuse a feeling of “I can do it!”
  • Provide pain relief   in a natural and safe way
  • Help induce contractions
