Aromatherapy for Winter Time

Happy & Healthy Holiday Aroma Tips:

 

There are many essential and botanical oils that can be useful during Winter time to help support your immune system and protect your skin. Below is a list of some of the more common oils and botanicals that can be used to make aromatherapy blends for topical application and environmental diffusion.

 

Immune Support: Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus radiata), Ginger (Zingiber officinalis) Lavender Spike (Lavandula spica), Lemon (Citrus limonon).

 

Place 4 drops of each of the Immune Support essential oils into a professional diffuser atomizer filled with distilled water. Diffuse throughout the day. For environmental diffusion only. If irritation occurs discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

 

Tip: don't have a diffuser unit? mix the same essential oils into a 4 ounce mist spray bottle. Top off with 3 ounces of distilled water and 1 ounce of witch hazel. Shake well before each use. For environmental diffusion only. If irritation occurs discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children and pets

 

Skin Support: Carrot Seed (Daucus carota), Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens), Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), Neroli (Citrus aurantium var. amara), Palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii), Patchouli (Pogostemon cablin), Ylang Ylang (Cananga odorata)

 

Botanical and Carrier oils: Coconut Oil, Jojoba, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Olive Oil, Sesame Seed Oil

 

Make your own skin care oil: place 3-4 drops of 1-3 of the Skin Support essential oils listed above into a 2 ounce bottle. Top off with 1 ounce Jojoba and 1 ounce of another carrier oil such as Olive Oil. Shake well before each use. For environmental diffusion only. If irritation occurs discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

 

Holiday Time Aromas: Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) and Pine (Pinus sylvestris). Try to use Sprue Pine essential oil, it smells just like a Christmas tree!

 

Combine: place 4-6 drops of each Holiday Time essential oils into a 4 ounce mist spray bottle. Top off with 3 ounces of distilled water and 1 ounce of witch hazel. Shake well before each use. For environmental diffusion only. If irritation occurs discontinue use. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

It is best to work with a professionally trained aromatherapist when incorporating essential oils into one's lifestyle.  Schedule an aromatherapy consultation with Ashi Aromatics's Registered Aromatherapist Certified Clinical Aromatherapy Practitioner, Certified Bach Flower Practitioner and License Massage Therapist: Kelly Holland Azzaro.
