Plant based alchemy

Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants with vast healing properties. Using essential oils for these purposes is known as aromatherapy, a holistic therapy seeking to improve physical, mental + emotional health.

My loves, if you’ve been following me awhile… you would know how bloody passionate I am about my essential oils. I use them everyday, in soo many different applications (aromatically, topically, personal care, food additive). They have supported my own/hubby’s health + wellbeing (as well as the frenchie + kitty) in countless ways. To the point where we say, “what oil can I use for that?” whenever something crops up. It’s our immediate response.

Essential oils are highly concentrated, with a strong aroma. They are called volatile aromatic oils because of their high concentration of the aromatic compounds. By concentrating the oils of these plants, you are literally separating the most powerful healing compounds of a plant into a single oil.

Overall, aromatherapy is a great and inexpensive way to help promote healing, relaxation + well-being without adverse side effects.

Not all essential oils are created the same. Do your research.

Pure. No use of pesticides/chemicals. Potent. Highest of quality.

I use my diffuser everyday based on what I’m feeling… seasonal threats, emotions, energy levels, hormonal, spring cleaning, sleep support, cleansing, stress etc.

Here is a few examples of what I use the top 10 essential oils for.

Peppermint – I use in raw treats/energy balls, diffuse for energy, use on insect bites, as a repellent.

Lavender – in my homemade face serum, in my sleep blend roller, diffuse when I need to relax + apply to burns/cuts.

Frankincense – in my homemade face serum (age spots), diffuse when meditating, take in a veggie cap for immune support + apply topically when I have any inflammation (e.g. puffy eyes).

Lemon – add to my water to detox, cleanse. Add a few drops on fish. In my kitchen all purpose spray (natural anti-bacterial).

Easy air – diffuse when seasonal threats. Rub onto chest when experiencing tightness, to help open my airways.

Oregano – I rub a drop onto my feet when feeling run down. I use on boils or raised lumps.

On guard – always wear topically when we travel to protect against threats. Diffuse when seasonal threats. Use in homemade cleaning products.

Ice blue – rub into my muscles before + after a workout or some serious garden work. Rub into my neck after extended time on the computer to help relax + unwind. Rub into the soles of my feet when I’ve been on them all day.

Tea tree – in my shampoo to help with psoriasis.

There are of course so many other essential oils (including emotional blends) + uses, but I simply can’t list them all!

Sleep support. Drifting off to dreamland

Sleep plays a crucial role in your physical health and is as equally important as nutrition, exercise + emotional wellbeing. Quality sleep is important to a number of brain functions, including how nerve cells communicate with each other and is involved with healing + repair of the heart and blood vessels.

7-9 hours is the recommended sleep duration for adults

Essential oils may provide the safe, natural support you just need – for getting consistent, quality sleep + in managing stress.

Aroma’s/scents can have a strong influence over how we feel. When we smell something, our olfactory nerve sends signals directory to our limbic system (the part of our brain responsible for memory/mood. That is why certain scents can instantly make us feel uplifted, relaxed, nostalgic, or recall a memory.

Choosing essential oils that promote relaxation can help to prepare your body into a restful state, ready for slumber. Making essential oils part of your night time routine (before bed) can also help to train your mind to associate the specific scent with falling asleep.

Essential oils have adaptogenic properties – which means they can either stimulate or relax your nervous system, depending on what your body needs in the moment. A balancing effect per say.

Daily mindfulness + meditation are also wonderful daily wellness lifestyle habits

There are various ways to use essential oils for sleep support, including:

  • Diffusing in the bedroom in a diffuser
  • Rolling a sleep blend onto the forehead + neck
  • Massage a few drops into the feet + spine
  • Inhaling a few drops from cupped hands
  • Add to epsom salts and soak in the bath before bedtime
  • Creating an essential oil spray to spritz in the bedroom or onto your pillow 

 

oils

Essential oils to use for sleep support, but not limited to;

  • Place 1 -2 drops of lavender oil on your pillow
  • Combine 1 cup epsom salts with 10 drops Balance + 10 drops Lavender Peace *mix + pour into the bath
  • Inhale 1-2 drops of lavender or vetiver from cupped hands
  • Combine 15 drops of Vetiver + Wild orange in a 10ml roller bottle + top with fractionated coconut oil. Keep beside the bed + apply to neck/behind the ears when getting into bed. (this is my personal blend … my body instinctively responds to the scent – helping to switch off my mind + calm my system down.
  • Diffuse 3 drops bergamot, 2 drops cedarwood + 1 drop marjoram or,                                 4 drops lavender, 2 drops cedarwood, 2 drops Wild orange + 1 drop Ylang ylang *there are so many variations to try – go with oils that resonate with you
  • Combine 2 tbsp witch hazel, 10 drops lavender oil, 6 tbsp filtered water in a small spray bottle and spritz in the bedroom (or on the sheets + pillow)

It is all about creating routine… unwinding, and getting yourself in a zen garden before bed. That’s right, no Facey or Insta in bed!
