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.

Muscle Tension

Muscular Tension
Overused and overextended muscles cause tension. Any movement we make, no matter how small, involves muscles tensing and flexing. Any activity that entails repetitive movement from tapping away on a laptop to swinging a golf club, or during periods of stress and anxiety, can result in tight muscles that are ‘stuck’ in a tense state. Once these muscles refuse to relax they weaken and circulation of blood and lymph is impaired.
Once a muscle becomes inflexible it is very difficult to release it.
