Essential Oils Can Make Your Day

Essential Oils Can Make Your Day

Ciao bella,

Ahhhhhh -- Aromatherapy! It can bring you back to childhood, a trip to Italy, Nana' s cooking or just a marvelous state to put you in a better mood! As of this moment I have incorporated a "lemon tonic" (smells more like lemon meringue pie) into my Natural Nail Manicures! Essential oils are used professionally to enhance a salon experience, use as a room air freshener, and also to create perfume. Why not bring it into your life!

There are rules of the trade when using Essential Oils. They should always be diluted with a carrier oil. There are many such as sweet almond oil, grape-seed, rose hip or soybean etc. You cannot use an Essential Oil in its pure form. Mixing 3 or 4 oils together with a carrier oil can be pure heaven!

Investing in an Aromatic Book or just searching for different scents and their qualities can prove most therapeutic when put to use, quite easily!

Here are some Essential Oils and their qualities:

Lemon. Booster for immune system, refreshing, uplifting, relieves anxiety and depression

Chamomile. Calming properties soothing skin that is itchy, has eczema, soothes nerves and anxiety.

Cinnamon. Antiseptic use, relieves tension and exhaustion.

Lime. Mood elevator, energizes, refresher, also aids in fatigue

Jasmine. Relaxing, calming, rids depression

Ginger. Aids in aching muscles and joints, good for circulatory issues, nervousness, sharpens senses

Geranium. Astringent, balancing, tension and fatigue relief, antiseptic properties

Lavender. Calming, soothing, mood lifter, relaxing

Frankincense. Stabilizer, soothes and calms, developer for inner strength

Marjoram. To treat migraine, general headache, depression, stress and anxiety

Thyme. For better memory and concentration, muscle aches and pains, fatigue relief

These Essential Oils are just a few of the many that are used in bringing to you good Karma!

So take a whiff and feel it!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!

it is good to know that all those spices are in my garden and I can use them other than cooking. Of course I have lemons and keep finding new ways to use them.
