Green Valley Aromatherapy – May 2017
Dear Aroma Friends,
WELCOME TO SPRINGTIME!
Here’s to the happy month of May. May joy be in your heart!
And a happy 1st year anniversary to our store in downtown Courtenay! Thank you to all of our customers for making this year great! If you are in the area, please stop in. There may be some surprises for you. Tuesday the 2nd of May will be our big day, but we will be celebrating all month long. Please pop in and join us.
This time last year I had my surgery and was in the middle of Chemo, later starting Radiation treatments. I do not know where the time has gone. I am progressing quite well with 2 steps forward and one back. The worst thing is feeling incredibly tired most of the time. I have been using Melissa and Frankincense in my diffuser and citrus oils in my cream in an effort to energize myself and get back into life.
Aromatherapy is really springing (I have spring on my mind now that it has finally decided to arrive) into the limelight. So many entrepreneurs are adding it to what they do or are creating new businesses around aromatherapy.
Here are some examples:
We supply yoga studios, reflexology practitioners, massage therapists, counselors, spa services, and we have helped customers get their new skin care line off the ground. Our customers make home cleaning products, hair care products, tumble dryer products, pet products, natural perfumes, home made soaps, baby products, candles and much, much more.
Profile on palmarosa Essential Oil:
Traditional Indian medicine has a long history using Palmarosa for fevers, infectious diseases and as a digestive stimulant. It is also a powerful bactericide, active against the bacteria responsible for intestinal infections such as gastroenteritis. Palmarosa has been found to kill escherichia coli bacteria in 5 minutes.
Profile on Moisturizing base cream:
Moisturizing Base Cream is a natural cream by a local company here in Courtenay.

Recipe for light skin serum
There is no reason these days not to change your lifestyle and create yourself a self-help program with all of the information available in the internet and in books. I have been pouring over Donna Marie’s book “Making Aromatherapy Creams and Lotions” to find a light skin moisturizer. Since the chemo, my skin has been very sensitive. I have chosen what she calls “Light Skin Serum” on page 94 of her book.
