Your Aromatherapy - It's Spring - give your body that wake-up call!
April 14, 2018

Spring is a beautiful time of the year with the longer days and the warmer is a time of hope, anticipation and renewal. We feel brighter and more active as our yang energies are beginning to rise and there is a sense of renewed energy and an excitement to be outside. We want to shake off our sleepy winter hibernation!

And, of course, aromatherapy is fantastic for helping to give your body that wake-up call. We can use essential oils to uplift our spirits, unclutter our minds and to help us start afresh.

There are many essential oils which are good to have to hand at this time, and I am going to highlight bergamot and basil.....

Enjoy your spring!

Bergamot Essential Oil

I love Bergamot and its calming, yet uplifting, aroma and I often diffuse it at home if I'm feeling at all agitated or down.

It has incredible emotional and physical healing properties so I also use it in many of my massage blends.

It has purifying and healing skin benefits, it can be used to help with scarring and other marks on the skin, and promotes a healthy, clear glow. What an ideal choice to add to your skincare creations!

However, I think that the greatest gift that bergamot essential oil offers is the emotional wellbeing we helps us to learn to love and accept ourselves and to reinforce our self-worth. It helps us move forward in our own self-confidence, releases emotional pain and has the ability to give an energy boost.

Basil Essential Oil

Basil is sometimes described as the oil of 'renewal', which is why I believe it is a great oil for the spring.

It is a potent oil with a multitude of uses including pain relief, improving digestion, treating infections and relieving stress. It is especially good for strengthening and calming the mind.

Diffuse basil when you want to feel alert and to clear your mind. Also great for diffusing when you have a cold or flu.

Basil is a fabulous oil for toning the skin and is often used to treat the symptoms of acne.
