summer has arrived here on the west coast of Australia. A busy time of the year with the school year coming to an end, lots of outdoor activities and time spent on the beach. I’ve already had my first sunburn of the season. And the oils have been a great help looking after that. So let’s look at how our oils can support us during the summer…
After my first visit to the beach and exposing my winter skin to the sun I made up the following aftersun lotion. I found that adding the oils to the doTerra lotion made my skin feel more nurtured then using a carrier oil
I also made up a spray to soothe and cool the skin similar to the ones below. I used Lavender, Frankincense, Melaleuca and Roman Chamomile in a spray bottle with water. The Chamomile is very soothing and calming for the skin and smells beautiful.
The other thing that is so important in summer is to stay properly hydrated. I find that I can drink a lot more water if I add a couple of drops of essential oils to it. One oil in particular that I love in my drinking water is Smart & Sassy – a combination of Grapefruit, Lemon, Peppermint, Ginger and Cinnamon oil. It’s citrusy and refreshing and really good for your metabolism
Make sure to always use glass or stainless steel bottles. The Lemon oil for example has such strong cleansing properties that it can draw the plastic toxins out of your bottle if you use a plastic bottle.
In emotional aromatherapy Roman Chamomile is the Oil of Spiritual Purpose: Roman Chamomile supports an individual in discovering and living their true life purpose. Regardless of what they do for a living, Chamomile helps them find purpose and meaning in their lives. It assists a person in shedding the meaningless activities that consume their lives so that they can focus on a more fulfilling work, even the work of their own souls. People fear and believe that if they do what they love, they will end up destitute. Roman Chamomile says, “Do what you love and everything will be a success.” ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book
In emotional aromatherapy Ginger is the Oil of Empowerment: Ginger oil holds no reservations. It has a purpose and it will fulfill it! Ginger powerfully persuades individuals to be fully present and participate in life. It teaches that to be successful in life one must be fully committed to it. Ginger empowers individuals in taking complete responsibility for their life circumstances. It infuses a warrior-like mentality based on personal integrity, centralised responsibility and individual choice. Here, the individual sees themselves as the creator of their own life. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book
In emotional aromatherapy Cedarwood is the Oil of Community: Cedarwood brings people together to experience the strength and value of community. It supports individuals in seeing that they are not alone; life is a shared experience. It invites individuals to both give and receive, so they may experience the strength of groups and the joy of relationships. ~ excerpt from ‘Emotions & Essential Oils’ book
