December 25, 2017
So the cold snap is finally here, but what a glorious autumn we have had....I'm sure it will make the winter feel that much shorter!
At this time of year I find myself turning to my anti-viral essential oils to help protect me and my family's health. So I am highlighting Eucalyptus Oil, a fantastic natural all round protector in wintertime - AND so uplifting!
I am also finding that skin needs more nourishment at the moment, so let's take a look at Avocado oil and its skin benefits.
Also treat your feet AND protect yourself from colds and flu at the same time....check out the recipe at the end of this e-zine.
Eucalyptus Essential OilIt's cold and flu season!! Time to make sure you have eucalyptus essential oil to hand....one sniff and it makes you feel better instantly.
This is a lovely holistic oil, and one I use often in my aromatherapy and 'Natural Lift' facial massages.
Firstly it has a gorgeous aroma, a little like rose geranium but with citrus overtones.
Secondly it is great for tired muscles and helps to relax nerves......a real stress-buster.
Thirdly it has been called 'Mother Nature's Moisturiser' because it is so fabulous for your skin.
So it is a no-brainer for me.......!

An Aromatherapy Tip for SeptemberWe are almost at the end of summer, and Mother Nature is starting to cool things down, so it is natural that we are going to want to stay warm at this time of year.....and keep our immune system defenses as high as possible.
There are a few essential oils (according to Traditional Chinese Medicine) that can help you warm up your energy and boost your immune system.
Diffuse cinnamon, orange and ginger essential oils in an aromatherapy burner ......this will certainly warm your spirits.
Try rosemary, marjoram and eucalyptus for a real natural immune system booster.
Boost your energies physically and emotionally.....and your family is going to love the warming smells as well!
