I am a big fan of using essential oils in the shower and I know you are going to enjoy this method of application as much as I do because it is:

  • Effective

  • Safe

  • Practical

  • Pleasant

All you need is the essential oil or essential oil blend of your choice and a clean washcloth.  

Here is how you use essential oils in the shower and derive the maximum benefits:

  1. Before you get into the shower, think about the therapeutic properties and positive effects of the essential oil that you are going to use.
  2. Put 3 to 5 drops of the essential oil on the washcloth.
  3. While showering, place the washcloth on your chest and allow the heat of the shower to release the vapors of the essential oil.
  4. Breathe deeply, relax your mind and visualize the wonderful changes that the essential oils are bringing about in your mind and body.
  5. Once you turn the shower off, use the same washcloth to rub your body, specially arms and legs, with movements pointing towards the heart. This  helps stimulate circulation, lymph movement and your immune system

Which essential oils to choose?

  • For sinus congestion or blocked respiratory passages:

Eucalyptus Radiata, Ravensara (Ravensara aromatica), Pine (Pinus silvestris), Cypress (cupresus sempervirens), IMMUNE SUPPORT Essential Oil Blend

  • To wake up, clear a foggy brain and buckle up for the day. Essential oils for energy:

Spearmint (Mentha spicata), Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinale)

  • To start the day with energy and stimulate the adrenal glands:

Black Spruce (Picea mariana) , Rosemary(Rosmarinus officinale), Pine (Pinus silvestris), VIGOR Energia Essential Oil Blend

  • To have a happy, fun day filled with positivity and enthusiasm. Essential Oils for Depression and Anxiety:

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia), Lemon (Citrus limon), Grapefruit (Citrus paradisii), ALEGRIA Essential Oil Blend

  • To help you relax at bedtime and have a restful sleep. Essential Oils for Stress and Insomnia:

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Marjoram (Origanum marjorana), Mandarin (Citrus reticulata), Frankincense (Boswelia carterii), SERENO SLEEP TIME Essential Oil Blend

Business Person Juggling Career, Work, Love, Home, Life on White

Fatigued? Sick all the time? Low sex drive? Maybe you have to take a look at your adrenal glands.

What are The Adrenal Glands?

The adrenal glands are two walnut-sized lumps that sit atop the kidneys. Their foremost function is to help you deal with stress in all its varied forms—from the slight to the extreme. The adrenal glands have close to 50 other functions, including metabolism, the sodium/potassium balance, blood sugar levels, and aiding in the production of sex hormones.  

The Fight or Flight Response

When stress hits the adrenal glands jump into action by putting you into fight-or-flight mode. The glands release adrenaline to increase your heart rate, blood pressure, rate of breathing, and secrete other hormones that instruct your digestive system and other “non-vital” systems to temporarily stop functioning.
By directing all available blood flow to your muscles at the same time, your body prepares itself to either attack (fight) or to run away from (flee) the perceived threat or challenge.

The fight-or-flight response is normal and healthy, but it becomes damaging when we react to every minor situation in a state of tremendous stress. In the fast-paced lives we lead today, just getting to work on time can be stressful; not to mention the dozens of other tasks that need we need to complete.
Problems arise if  throughout the day the adrenal glands are kept constantly stimulated. A person with overworked adrenal glands is constantly fatigued, has low sex drive, frequently catches colds and infections, is easily depressed and has trouble sleeping.

How Can Aromatherapy Help the Adrenal Glands?

There are compounds in some volatile oils that have a structural similarity to natural human hormones, and these promote efficient endocrine gland activity by natural means. For instance, the compounds found in Pine, Spruce and Rosemary oils are like cortisone. It is said that they stimulate the cortex of the adrenal glands or they mimic the action of cortisone in so far as they have a modulating effect on the activity of the adrenal cortex. [1]

Here are some strategies that you could use to integrate aromatherapy in your daily routine to help both physically and emotionally.
  • During the day, add 2 drops to a tissue with a calming essential oil, and breathe deeply, all the while visualizing a calm, positive scene. Experiment with essential oils of Clary Sage, Bergamot Litsea Cubeba and Citrus Delight
  • In the morning, start off your day with the magic of essential oils. Begin in the shower, by massaging the center of your back, where the kidneys are located. Rub the area with a washcloth to which two drops of Rosemary and Spruce oils have been added. These oils mimic adrenal hormones and, in stimulating the adrenal cortex, send a current of energy all through your body. You can also use ENERGIA Essential Oil.
  • After your shower, massage the same area with a ½ teaspoon of  carrier oil and a couple of drops of Pine, Spruce, Rosemary, essential oils. or 1/2 teaspoon of Adrenal Support Body Oil.   Feel your hands instilling restoration and balance with each loving stroke. As you massage, thank the energies of the oils for all the help they provide you.
  • In the evening,  there’s nothing better to calm and soothe than a warm bath with essential oils. Great oils to relax in the evenings are Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Frankincense, and Rose. If you prefer showers, soak a washcloth a few drops of essential oil and let the hot water run through the washcloth, and inhale and soak in the fragrant steam as you unwind.

Apr 25 2011 Nothing is more satisfying than knowing that our products are working for our clients. They are made with love and the formulations are based on many years of practical experience. We’d like to share this successful story with you: “I had suffered with migraine-like hormonal headaches for at least 5 years, partly due to past overuse of steroids to control inflammation, asthma, and other allergy and immune-function problems. I began using Aromandina products five months ago. Since then I have only experienced one bad hormone headache. I’ve been using RADIARE Essential Oil Blend, Woman’s Help Body Oil, and Adrenal Support Body Oil almost every day. I have added one to three functional days to every month. Yay! An interesting side note is that I am unable to smell; yet the products seem to be working. I am now trying the Immune System Support Essential Oil Blend to see if maybe (crossing fingers) that blend will help my olfactory system function properly. Thanks Cristina and staff for awesome products and excellent service. One happy customer, ~carol welch” © 2011, Cristina Proano-Carrion, Aromandina LLC – aromatherapy blog

“Amatherapy without massage is like an orchestra without a conductor” ~ Robert Tisserand
There is no denying that human touch has a distinctive “feel good” factor attached to it. Whether it is a gentle caress of a mother to comfort a crying child or the reassuring hug of a friend in difficult times, the warmth of another human body sends positive signals throughout our body and to our brains. Since aromatherapy is all about mind-body balance and holistic healing, it is quite natural that touch should have a large role to play in it. My fascination with the sense of touch started when many years ago, I read the book ‘Aromatherapy to Heal and Tend the Body’ by Robert Tisserand. The author of the book states:
“In a study at Purdue University, Indiana, in 1986, students who took out books from the library were interviewed as they came out.  They were asked specific questions relating to their opinion of the library and whether the checkout assistant had smiled at them.  The library assistant treated everyone in exactly the same way, except that every other student was lightly touched on the hand as their library card was handed back to them.  Those who were touched formed a more positive view of the library than those who were not and often thought that the assistant had smiled at them, although the fact she had not.”
The power of touch can be gauged from the fact that it is the first sense we develop in the womb and the last one we lose before death. It helps us communicate without words, connect with our environment and share emotions. Physical contact with a loved one not only feels nice and warm, it is essential for our wellbeing as it keeps feelings of loneliness and apathy at bay. Massage and aromatherapy go hand in hand.  You can start to create a loving atmosphere at home with those you love by indulging them in a relaxing massage. Even people who are not used to being touched, usually comply when their hands and feet are massaged. I have created different massage oils for different conditions, but you can always create your own concoctions based on the purpose you want them for and the scents you prefer. Here are some guidelines: Citrus essential oils: Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lemon, Orange, Mandarin, Citrus Delight Aromatherapy Blend, are always bright, happy and uplifting. They are safe to use during pregnancy and are liked by most people. Calming oils: Lavender, Clary Sage, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, SERENO Sleep Time Body Oil Stimulating oils: Rosemary, Peppermint, Basil, Cardamom, Ginger and Adrenal Support Body Oil Romantic oils: Jasmine, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli and Romance Body Oil Digestive oils: Ginger, Cardamom, Fennel, Orange, RosemaryBasil, Cinnamon and Digestive Body Oil Oils that can help improve circulation: Cypress, Lemon, Rosemary, Pine and Circulation Body Oil Add a total of 60 drops of your favorite essential oils to a 4 oz bottle of carrier oil and start enjoying the wonders of an aromatherapy massage. Apart from the immediate emotional benefits, massage also has several positive effects on physical health. Not only does it improve blood circulation, it also stimulates the lymphatic system, boosts immunity, relieves pain, reduces muscular tension and controls blood pressure.  Massage is also very effective against insomnia and stress-related conditions. I invite you to start today, sharing the loving touch of an aromatherapy massage.
