Aromatherapy Blends for the Soul

Aromatherapy Blends for the Soul

Everyone interprets scents differently, and connects certain smells with poignant memories. But regardless of what scents resonate with you personally, researchers have proven that, psychologically, the human sense of smell is the most accurate sense at triggering specific memories and emotions.

Working off of this idea, DIY’ers around the globe have concocted oil blends to naturally combat common ailments.  Take a look at some of these aromatherapy remedies:

Can’t Sleep: 5 drops Lavender + 7 drops Roman Chamomile

Sore Muscles: 2 drops Ginger + 1 drop Black Pepper + 4 drops Peppermint + 5 drops Eucalyptus

Stress: 2 drops Lemon + 4 drops Lavender + 6 drops Clary Sage

Cuts and Bruises: 6 drops Tea Tree + 6 drops Lavender

Headaches and Sinus Congestion: 4 drops Peppermint + 8 drops Eucalyptus

If you do want to try these combinations at home, try to find small dark bottles to store them in.  Dark glass will let less light into the contents and keep your oils from going off, as heat is damaging to their properties.

What natural remedies work for you?  Do certain smells bring back childhood memories?

Why brushing your body is just as important as brushing your hair

For the majority of us, mornings are hectic and it seems almost impossible to get out the door on time. The thought of adding another thing to do in the morning probably makes you cringe, but before you jump to that conclusion, hear me out.

I first stumbled across the idea of dry brushing in a magazine article years ago. With further research I was intrigued to try it out and see if my body would stop feeling constantly cold. To my surprise not only did it help my circulation, but my skin was left glowing and soft.
