Mental Health Awareness Week and Aromatherapy

The 18-24 May is Mental Health Awareness Week and right now more than ever, with everything thing that is going on our mental health is so important.   
It has been estimated that 1 in 4 adults in the UK will experience mental health issues during 2020, but that figure will probably rise due to the current covid-19 pandemic and the effect it has had on our lives. Before corona virus hit, our fast-paced lives had become one of the main reason that so many of us were struggling with our mental health.

The Safe Use Of Essential Oils at Home

I am often asked about using essential oils safely at home. My first response is always check the oils you are considering using- most modern essential oils should have an expiry date so check this. Essential oils are a natural product and do not contain preservatives so anything out of date should not be used on the skin as there is a risk of skin irritation. 
Once you have established that the oils are in date check where you store them. Essential oils should be kept in their original dark coloured bottles.

My Top Three Essential Oils

The most difficult question you can ask any Aromatherapist is ‘What are your Top Three oils?’, but I’ll give it a go!
My number one oil can change daily depending on my mood and who I am working with at the time. I might open a tiny bottle of an essential not used for a while and think ’this has got to be my favourite, why have I neglected it for so long?’, then that can all change the next day!
Having said that I nearly always return to the classic oil Frankincense, mainly because of its power to visibly calm and comfort.

Aromatherapy: A Natural Aid to a Good Nights Sleep

Aromatherapy: A Natural Aid to a Good Night’s Sleep

We spend one- third of our lives asleep. Sleep is as vital to humans as the air we breathe and the food we eat. Without sleep we become ill as good quality sleep helps our brain function, gives us a general feeling of well-being, aids our concentration, improves memory and mood and boosts our immune system. Most people function on far less sleep than they really need, this is due to modern lifestyles affecting our sleep patterns.

Aromatherapy offers a safe and natural aid to sleep problems without any of the side-effects sometimes experienced with sleeping tablets.

Essential Oils for Winter Well-Being

As the temperatures  plummet we do not automatically think of reaching for essential oils to help keep warm, however there are a group of essential oils that can be described as being ‘warming’ to the body. These oils have a rubefacient effect on the body which means that when they are applied topically they cause the dilation of capillaries and an increase in blood circulation which brings heat to the area and can significantly ease aches and pains.

Such essential oils not only bring heat to the areas applied but they can awaken dull senses, lift the spirits, they can stimulate sluggish circulation and digestion and many of these warming oils also have emollient properties helping to calm and soothe dry, irritated skin that can often occur during the colder months.

Hot & Cold Stone Massage (Geothermal Therapy)

Geothermal Therapy

Geothermal therapy, or massage with hot stones and cold stones, has become a very popular treatment over the last couple of years. Although often regarded as a luxury spa treatment a stone massage has many health benefits, from easing tight, weak muscles to improving the circulation and aiding aching joints. Many people will have experienced a hot stone massage but flinch when I mention the cold stones. The application of cold stones is short and can help with overheating during the massage, it can alleviate the sluggish feeling often experienced after a hot stone massage.

Look After Your Body

Your body is an amazing feat of engineering. It is bone, muscle, organs, nerves and cells all working in harmony together controlled by the brain. But what happens when you have a niggling pain in your back or headaches regularly? You ignore it and hope it goes away-BUT what happens if your car has a strange rattle or develops a leak? You lavish lots of time and money on it by taking it to the garage to be fixed- after all you cannot manage without your car!
Your body is a finely tuned machine and any pains or funny rashes are warning signs of imbalances in that fine tuning.
