This is my final post for Aromatherapy Awareness week this year and the most difficult one to write as just like my skin care products, nail polishes and lippies I love LOTS of essential oils!
Anyway, after some serious pondering I decided to just choose the ones that I use most both at work and also personally. They are not listed in any particular order, lol.
Frankincense - I use this in a lot of my DIY skin care products as it is perfect for mature skin, fine lines and wrinkles. I also diffuse it in my Lumie Clock at night time before I go to bed as it helps to deeply relax my mind which can get a bit chatty when I want to sleep. I also diffuse it when I am doing my night time yoga before bed time. I also use Frankincense in my DIY room sprays as it "cleanses vibes" which do collect around the home and especially in my treatment room. So all in all, I love Frankincense for its anti ageing, meditative and spiritual purification properties!
Orange (Sweet) - I love this essential oil as it is so versatile. It can be used to uplift and yet relax, you know when you feel a bit fed up but anxious at the same time. It is also the perfect essential oil to add to essential oil blend experiments that turn a bit sour! So if you are ever feeling creative and making a room spray or anotehr product and it goes wrong and smells awful, add a few drops of orange essential oil, it works a treat.
Lemon - this is another staple that I use in purfication room sprays, not just for people "vibes" but also to cleanse my environment of any lurking bacteria. Lemon is also a lovely addition to detox massage oils. It is also very refreshing and uplifting and helps me to concentrate when I have to focus on writing blog posts or doing other such tasks that need my concentration.
Roman or German Chamomile - this is my go to essential oil for making balms or massage oils for inflammation in my knee joints. I also use my own DIY chamomile facial oil to buffer any potential skin irritations when I am using skin products that can be a little aggressive such as Vitamin C or Retinol. Chamomile is also very emotionally soothing and calming.
Geranium - this is my favourite essential oil for hormonal psychotic female monthly imbalances. It helps to keep my mind and emotions on a more balanced and on an even keel so I diffuse this day and night time. I also use it massage oil blend for the same reason. I also love the aroma, it is so clean and floral without being sickly sweet.
Here is a little more information about other ways you can use these 5 essential oils
