Sensitive

Any client, patient or massage therapist that uses lesser quality oils always notes the difference after they try pure therapeutic oils. Results show patterns were lowered and multiple effects (stress and activities) were due to characteristics of synergistic components of oils. It is important to be educated in their uses and use safety to protect the delicate chemical balance of essential oils.

Dilution is required for cinnamon because it is a very hot oil. Sensitive skin will react to this essential oil.

You already buy essential oils:

Fragrances, when inhaled, no matter what their source, enter the blood stream and are able to breech the blood-brain barrier gaining access to the limbic system. This affects the emotions and alters mood.

I decided to do a little research about what essential oils are put into perfumes, soaps and hair care products. Some projects I’ve worked on have shown me that an Egyptian queen in 1500 B. C. used myrrh and Cleopatra used rose.  A hairspray bottle included White Ginger in its ingredients. Is it put into it to volumize my hair? I think some hairsprays use organically grown botanicals but I got curious what other plant extracts were being put into our bathroom supplies.

Nature’s remedies…Oily skin: Oatmeal w/ spring water.

Oatmeal is protein rich and high in vitamin B. It can exacerbate itching and eczema. Blend or food process a cup of oatmeal into a powder.

mask – Honey and bentonite clay.

Honey will help to quickly clean an infection and stimulate the growth of skin tissue. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans and Aztecs used raw honey for cuts and burns. Honey is an antibacterial substance. The properties draw water out of bacterial cells, causing them to shrivel up and die.

Properties of Honey: hydrogen peroxide and a high osmotic pressure.

  • Once a week add 1 tsp. Manuka honey to a mashed apple or banana. Leave on 1/2 hr. Rinse w/ cold milk.
  • Lighten skin with cucumber slices

Burdock used as a hair rinse promotes scalp and hair health. It also relieves hot flashes.

Darken grey hair: Chamomile or sage boiled in water 20 min. Rinse hair and brush through w/ hairbrush dipped in the tea. (I have tried teas for adding color to my hair. It works!!! I tried these and I used some black tea and rosemary essential oil to put a few low-lights in my hair.)

Chamomile and ginger tea

Massage/Reflexology

START Position is w/ person lying on their back.
*Apply oil on each foot

-Back 2 Spine, have client face down on table.
6-8 drops lumbar to cervical spine.

-Feather along spin in strokes of 3.
Then apply 10-25 drops V-6 on back, neck and shoulders.

Starting on one side of the spine, gently massage the oils in along the spine.

Oregano- phenols clean the receptor sites, strong anti-microbial

  • 2-4 drops

Thyme- stimulates nerve receptors

*Always have lavender w/ you in case of redness or irritation.
The greater the inflammation and viral infection along the spine, the hotter the area along the spine will become. Pay attention to what the person is saying. Pay close attention because the back can become very hot! Some people will experience no heat. The more out of balance, the more virus or bacteria activity in the body.

In Raindrop Technique is a sequence of anointing with oils and laying on of hands that brings structural alignment and relaxation. There are many versions of application. One variation uses the oils birch, lemongrass, marjoram, cypress and a couple drops of peppermint if there are arthritic or compressed disks. Wintergreen is also used for bones and soft tissue, anti-inflammatory. In the January 2000 version and DVD from Young Living he uses Valor, Oregano, Thyme, Basil, Wintergreen or Birch, Marjoram, Cypress, Peppermint. The Massage Blend OrthoEase is a massage base oil of wheat germ, grape see, almond, olive, and vitamin E containing wintergreen, juniper, marjoram, red thyme, vetiver, peppermint, eucalyptus and lemongrass.

Aromatherapy practitioners also add other therapies like tuning forks to enhance the use of essential oils. Raindrop technique originated in the 1980s from the research of D. Gary Young working with Wallace Black Elk, a Lakota medicine man. Raindrop Application should only be used if you are very confident in what you are doing. Use caution and end w/ words of comfort.

Lemon

For soft feet put citrus oils like lemon on them before bed.

When the essential oil is diffused it in air it smells clean. Lemon combines well with geranium and chamomile.

When you have a cut use this oil. Keep your Lemon oil and other essential oils in dark-colored, well-sealed (not plastic) bottles. Air and light can penetrate clear bottles. Try placing some oil on a blown up balloon. You’ll see why I say don’t put them in any plastic containers. Warning: The body must not be exposed to sunlight within 12 hours of treatment with lemon essential oil.

TAKE-OUT Rice Salad

Well I’ve been slacking on this blog for the last month. Sorryyyyyy. I am really excited that I have a new website to share if I ever figure it out. For now my insights will be found on the one here.  Updates on all this later. I hope it doesn’t take another month. There is an oil for that….

1 cup rice (leftover chinese food, wild rice, or brown rice)

1 1/2 cups red bell pepper (I had some frozen green and red from last year’s garden)

1/3 cup red onion, sliced

1/2 cup celery, chopped

1/4 cup peas

1/4 cup low-sodium soy

1 T. olive oil

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

2 drops of orange oil

2 drops of lemon oil

1/2 cup raw almonds, sliced

Salt and pepper

Mix up the ingredients and serve as a salad, in a pita or add some chicken to make a lettuce wrap.

I also combined soy, olive oil, onion, garlic and essential oils to make extra dressing. Salt and pepper were also added. These ingredients were cooked just a little. Never boil your essential oils. Whenever I make soup I let the liquid cool awhile before adding Young Living Essential oils.

If you were wanting to change this up you could use cashews instead of almonds. Use ginger oil & spice it up.

Children

Abundant research has shown a child will benefit from eating adequate protein. The typical American diet consists of mostly processed foods, white flour, dairy and sugars. A child’s digestive system is delicate.

I have done academic work in environmental sciences and worked with families and children. I know that aroma extracts and aroma components can create positive changes for many ailments.

 Take baths with Lavender oil. Never put any oils inside the ear. Use a cotton ball or place your hand on the outside of the ears and hold. Viruses can cause breathing difficulties. Thyme oil is used to aid in ailments. Both lavender and thyme are cleansing. Thyme is also cleansing as a mouthwash and all over rub.

Behavior problems are very upsetting to any family or relationship. Do what feels comfortable.

My last piece of daily advice is to STOP using air fresheners. The pleasant smell is a toxic chemical. You can scent your home without inhaling harmful substances that will damage nasal membranes. Try clove, cinnamon or citrus oils. Children seem to be calmer when Lemon oil is put into a diffuser.
