March’s Essential Oil of the Month…Rosemary!

1 Mar

PAP_YBN-26-hi-resBotanical Name: Rosmarinus officinalis

Source: flowers and leaves

Overview:

Rosemary is a popular aromatic herb.  It grows wildly in the Mediterranean region near the sea and the botanical name for rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) reflects this; the Latin ros, means dew and marinus, means sea.  Rosemary essential oil is energizing and stimulating which makes it perfect for this time of year as we transition from the slumber of winter to aliveness of spring.

Rosemary is a versatile essential oil; use it for depression, fatigue, memory, headaches, chest congestion, flu, in household cleaning and in hair care.   Rosemary essential oil is an analgesic which makes it useful to use for muscular and arthritis relief.  Diffuse Rosemary essential oil while working or studying in order to get the mental boost this essential oil provides.  Feel the energy Rosemary essential oil brings, use it first thing in the morning to get that “wake up” boost to get your day going or during that mid day slump when energy is waning.

Don’t miss out on your massage this month with our Blend of the Month!  This month we bring you “Love Your Life” featuring essential oils of RosemaryNeroliGrapefruit and Palmarosa.

Baby it’s Cold Outside- Winter Skin CareTips

21 Jan

MP900438953

Your skin, the largest organ of your body, protects you, absorbs nutrients, provides insulation and so much more.  With exposure to drier air and colder temperatures skin loses oil and water it needs to stay healthy and supple and becomes dry, irritated, cracked or itchy.  Here are some tips to help your skin as the journey through winter continues.

In the Bath:

  • Avoid long hot showers.  As tempting as it may be to take a hot shower or bath to warm up, use lukewarm water only.  Hot water strips your skin of its natural oils.  The hotter the water and the longer the shower the more oil your skin loses.
  • Dry skin brushing.  Do this once a week to help stimulate your skin’s natural oils.  Use small swift circular motions towards the heart.  Dry brush skin right before your shower or bath.
  • Use natural soaps that are gentle to your skin such as Your Body Needs… Goats Milk Soap, Lavender Soap and Peppermint Eucalyptus Soap.  Avoid commercial soaps, these tend to be drying to the skin, and are loaded with synthetic fillers and fragrances.  You can even make your own body washes using unscented castile soap, essential oils and sweet almond oil!
  • Exfoliate in the shower once a week.  Create your own sea salt and sugar scrubs using sweet almond oil and essential oils.  These scrubs rid the skin of dead cells and add lipids back into the epidermis.
  • Always, always, always apply body oil after a shower or bath.  You can create your own blends, or if that is a daunting task, use Your Body NeedsClassic Blend Body Oil.  Apply body oil when skin is still slightly damp, this way your skin will be both hydrated and moisturized.  

Give Your Hands a Hand:

Our hands are exposed to everything!  Give them the extra care they need.

  • Hand washing and detergents are drying to your skin.  This doesn’t mean you have to stop washing your hands!  Remember to apply moisturizer to them frequently such as Your Body Needs Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream.  This cream is truly a winter- time staple!  Never leave home without it!
  • Keep your hands protected from the elements by wearing gloves or mittens.
  •  Avoid hand sanitizing products that contain alcohol.  Alcohol is extremely drying to the skin.  Can’t live without your hand sanitizer?  Make your own using essential oils such as Tea Tree, Thyme and Lavender mixed with distilled water and aloe vera gel.  Place ingredients in a 2 ounce spritzer bottle and take it with you!
  • Wear gloves when washing dishes.  This will protect your hands from being over-exposed to hot water and detergents.

In the Laundry:

  • Check your detergent.  Do not use anything that contains synthetic fragrances.  Instead, use varieties that are free of perfumes and dyes.
  • Avoid scented dryer sheets. If you do use dryer sheets, again, make sure they are free from fragrances.
  • If you miss that fresh laundry scent add a damp cloth with a few drops of Tea Tree or Lavender essential oil and pop it in the dryer along with your clothes!

Other Ways to Help Your Skin:

  • Don’t forget your feet; they get dry too!  Be sure to use a pumice stone on callused areas and apply Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream to them before going to bed.  You will have smooth feet in the morning!
  • Using heat in the home is unavoidable however that adds to the drying of your skin.  Use a humidifier to replace lost moisture in the air.  Not only will your skin benefit, your sinuses will too!
  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.  Water helps all systems of your body, skin included!

Protect and take care of your skin.  Nourish it by using natural products; your skin absorbs everything you put on it into your body.  Your skin is the only organ of the body that is directly exposed to it all! Nourish it, protect it and it will protect you!  Stay warm and mosturized everyone!

Want to learn more about taking care of your skin?  Attend our workshop, “Love the Skin You’re In” on Tuesday February 19th at 6:30 PM. You will learn how to use essential oils in skin care and create a body oil and an exfoliating salt scrub.  Call the office or stop by the studio to register.

2 Jan

PAP_YBN-22-hi-resBotanical Name: Cymbopogon martini

Palmarosa essential oil is light, refreshing and sweet in aroma which helps to alleviate stress, anxiety and restlessness.  The therapeutic properties of palmarosa essential oil include antiseptic, bactericide, hydrating, digestive (aids in the digestion of food), and a tonic (helps to strengthen and improve bodily performance).

Perhaps the best use of Palmarosa essential oil is in skin care.  All skin types benefit from this essential oil.  Palmarosa essential oil is hydrating, good for those with sensitive skin, stimulates the regeneration of skin cells (excellent for use on scars) and balances sebum the natural oil in our skin.  Winter is a time when our skin is especially dry; add palmarosa essential oil to your skin care regime, your skin will thank you!

December Essential Oil of the Month…Juniper Berry!

3 Dec

Botanical Name: Juniperius communis

Source: Berry

Overview:

Juniper berry essential oil has a fresh, woodsy and cleansing aroma.  It is an energizing essential oil which makes it a good choice to use this time of year as the days get shorter.  Diffuse juniper berry essential oil in your home for an energizing and outdoorsy feel.  Try blending with peppermint and cinnamon essential oils to create a cheerful ambiance in your home.

Juniper berry essential oil is known for its detoxifying qualities.  Because of juniper berry’s warming and circulatory benefits it helps to get the blood flowing and rid the body of wastes.  Juniper berry essential oil also helps to reduce muscle aches and pains and joint stiffness.

Try juniper berry in your massage this month with our Winter Wonderland massage blend.  This month our massage blend features juniper berry, black pepper, cedarwood and peppermint.  This blend will help to give you energy, detoxify and relieve muscle soreness.

Uses & Facts:

Recipes

Detoxify Salt Scrub

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sea salt

Juniper berry essential oil

Grapefruit essential oil

15mls (1 Tablespoon) Almond oil

Directions:

1. Place sea salt in a medium bowl.

2.  Pour the almond oil over the sea salt and mix together with a spoon until blended.

3.  Add juniper berry essential oil and mix well.

4. Add grapefruit essential oil and mix well.

Once all ingredients are incorporated and mixed well, place in a jar to use in the shower.

To use:

Use in shower on wet skin.  Start from the ankles and work your way up, working in circular motions.  Rinse off. (I suggest using salt scrubs after you have washed your body that way the you get the benefit of the oil staying on your skin to mosturize.)  After your shower pat skin off and on damp skin apply our Classic Blend Body Oil.

Use salt scrub one time a week; you do not want to over exfoliate.  Do not use on freshly shaven skin or on cuts or wounds.

Winter Ambiance Diffuser Blend

5 drops Juniper berry essential oil

4 drops Cinnamon essential oil

3 drops Peppermint essential oil

Add water to a tealight diffuser or nebulizer, add essential oils and enjoy!
