Aromatic bathing:

With the days getting darker & colder, an aromatic hot bath is one of our ultimate rituals at this time of year.

Adding essential oils to warm bath water is one of the best & easiest ways to enjoy the benfits of aromatherapy. As you soak in the water, it softens the skin, opens the pores & helps the oils to absorb quickly & safely into the system. The 'aahhh' feeling hits you instantly as you get into a warm bath & both body & mind begin to unwind simultaneously.

Juniper, lavender & marjoram blend together beautifully & the three combined are an excellent choice for soothing tired joints & aching muscles.

Or try a blend of valarian, chamomile & rosemary to unwind with at the end of a long day & prepare for a restful nights sleep.

Choose & combine your oils to suit your mood or requirements for the day, making aromatic bathing a winter treat ritual that works for you.

Promoting sound sleep

Using essential oils to promote relaxation is an effective & entirely natural way of calming both body & mind. When used in a diffuser at bedtime, aromatic particles are absorbed into the blood stream via the lungs through inhilation, imparting a physiological & psychological effect on the systems of the body simultaneously. Because of these factors, essential oils can really provide immeadiate results, which make them such useful aids for promoting a good nights rest.

Stress, anxiety & depression can all lead to longer periods of poor sleep & during these times it can be helpful to use natural aids to overcome sleepless nights. Our 'deep sleep' diffusion blend is an excellent aid to help combat insomnia, naturally aiding the body & mind to relax, without the use of artificial sedatives. Try one of our diffusion blend synergys, or combine your own choice of oils for the desired effect for both a natural & therapeutic room fragrance.

Anxiety, stress & fear are all around: many of us have suffered panic attacks, grief, loss, separation and a sense of loneliness or despair over the past year. At such times it becomes very clear that we are social creatures and we feel isolated if we are not in human contact with others for prolonged periods of time. Children and young people especially have been denied the fun and playfulness of youth and the normal types of social interaction that later prepare them for becoming well-balanced adults. Yet change is inevitable - nothing lasts forever - not even covid! Now we need to find ways to see the light at the end of tunnel in order to survive and get through these dark times.

At the end of November 2020, I was involved in organising a series of lectures offering advice and help in dealing with the covid epidemic. Several international experts spoke about the current pandemic from different perspectives, but I think the most important aspect which was discussed and relevant to everyone from a naturopathic point of view, is what we can all do for ourselves in the way of prevention.

As a follow up to my blog on Naturopathic Ways of dealing with epidemics from the perspective of ‘prevention’, here is some advice on the use of spices in the context of Tibetan Medicine. The Tibetan medical approach has a great deal in common with aromatherapy, in that it traditionally employs herbs, spices and aromatic oils mainly in the form of aromatic baths and massage oils, together with a specific form of massage called Kyu Nye, alongside personalised dietary advice.
