Holiday Stress? Essential Oils can Help!

In Aromatherapy, Holidays by Debra Reis2 Comments

Peppermint- a great oil for clarity, decreases stress headaches and stomach aches, cools the body. It may be a little warm for some skin types to apply neat.

Orange and Cinnamon – an old remedy from many grandmothers. Science shows how both are great for the immune system. Take care when breathing in cinnamon – very strong and may irritate the mucosa; it should be diluted in a carrier oil such as olive oil if you wish to apply on the skin. Orange is safe for skin application however it is a citrus and use caution if applying on the skin and then going out in the sun. There has been a lot of research with orange for its antitumoral properties. There is research and testing with cinnamon and its effectiveness for the immune system.

Nutmeg – is a wonderful oil for digestion and related issues. It can be applied, inhaled or used as a food additive. Use caution with topical for some skin types may be irritating – may wish to dilute.

Joy – a great blend for the holiday stress. Contains several oils including rose (the highest frequency oil). Great to diffuse in home or office.

Many of you know how I LOVE the new Roll-Ons. We spoke about Stress Away last month – I still enjoy the many uses that are coming forward. It is great for anything (or anyone) that needs relaxation or calming. Deep Relief is a favorite of many for relieving pain and discomfort in muscles.
