What are the different methods of Aromatherapy?
The methods of aromatherapy are like simple, nourishing acts of self care. You can select the method that suits your situation, whether it is emotional or physical.
What is the best way to use Essential Oils?
This will depend on what you are using them for. Diffusing will affect your environment and hence your mood. It is best used for mental and emotional issues. It also purifies the air when someone in your house is sick. Body and face blends are great when you want to use them for physical symptoms such as aches, pains, bloating, nausea, or hormonal support.
♥ Add 4-8 drops of EOs to water. As the EOs are volatile, they will vaporize into tiny aromatic molecules into the air, purifying and creating an ambiance that will affect your emotions and mind
♥ Adding essential oils to your bath can be such a sanctuary for yourself. It is a wonderful way to wind off your day and prepare your body + mind for a night of restorative sleep.
♥ Add 2 tablespoons of liquid soap and 2 tablespoons of base carrier oil such as jojoba to allow the EOs to disperse. Otherwise, you could find yourself feeling a bit of a burning sensation. For instance, citrus oils or peppermint — Ouch!!
#3 Body Boost Blend:
♥ It is the method where you will add EOs to a base carrier oil to create either a daily blend to strengthen your immunity, a relaxing bath blend, or one that you make for a headache, anxiety, or muscular aches.
♥ Add 5 drops of essential oils for every 10 ml of base carrier oil such as jojoba.
♥ MORNING RITUAL Each morning after a shower, apply Daily Body Boost Blend, caressing your body, stimulating your senses, and awakening your intuition.
♥ EVENING RITUAL Each evening after a warm shower, using a calming slowing down technique, soothe the nervous system and cortisol production whilst preparing your body for restorative sleep.
#4 A drop into your palms:
♥ Put a drop of EO on your palm and take 20 deep breaths to soothe your nervous system or to revitalize your mind. Because, did you know that EOs affect your mind within 7 seconds of smelling them? Just 7 seconds! Think of it: you can break the circuit of negative thinking, anxious moods, and feeling low within 7 seconds.
#5 Add a drop to a tissue:
♥ It seems like magic, but do try this! If you are a woman, add a drop of your favorite essential oil on a tissue and insert it inside your bra. Men, tuck into a pocket on your shirt. It is especially good before a meeting for an instant mood lift or to help with congestion and colds.
♥ Yet another wonderful tool to use, especially if you are experiencing low spirits.
♥ Just sniff your favorite essential oil to feel the difference.
♥ There are more ways, but I’m sure inhalation is enough to get you started and lift your spirits high.
♥ After your usual cleansing routine, place 2-3 drops of a suggested essential oil or oil blend onto a wet cloth and rub this briskly over your body. Then, pat yourself dry.
♥ Add 3-4 drops of essential oils to a large bowl of hot water.
♥ Add a tablespoon of carrier base oil to assist in dispersing the oils, then soak your feet for at least 20 minutes.
♥ You can add marbles and roll your feet over them for some reflexology at the same time. Bliss!
ACTION # Choose one method and try it out for yourself. Schedule self care into your weekly planner. Make a date with yourself.
