People ask me why I started making blends, but like most things in my life it just happened! A friend of mine was practicing, among other things, reflexology. She asked me for a ready-made blend of oils that would suit people old or young, male or female and had general properties for feeling good, relaxed and energized.
From this request, Tranquility was born and this blend suited most of her requirements. The essential oils chosen, eventually, were Bergamot, Lavender, Geranium, and Ylang Ylang.
Profile on eucalyptus globulus essential oil:
Eucalyptus Globulus essential oil, sometimes referred to as Blue Gum, is a must for your wish list as it has so many everyday uses. It is an immune-stimulant. Everyone needs this to stand up to all of the bugs that are just waiting to get into your system. Eucalyptus Globulus is an anti-inflammatory. As you get older, you seem to get so many aches and pains from arthritis and the flu. Adding Eucalyptus Globulus to carrier oil, cream or gel, is like the Vicks we used for everything when we were kids.
Profile on lavender essential oil:
Lavender is a good oil to start using on young children. You can start with a diffuser in their room at bedtime to help calm them down and allow them to sleep. If your child has cold symptoms, Lavender is a good oil to use as it is anti-bacterial, anti-anxiety, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Great for snuffly noses, sore throats, muscle aches and irritability. You can’t beat that eh!!!
Profile on jolly holiday blend
Jolly Holiday was created to send a deliciously warm and festive atmosphere around your home. It is made up from Amyris essential oil, Cedarwood essential oil, Cinnamon essential oil, and Mandarin essential oil.
Recipe for a Luxurious Beard
Beards seem to be coming back into fashion for the men. We had a trip to England this summer and I was amazed at the amount of men wearing them. This led me to think that what they needed was a good carrier oil and essential oil mix to keep their beard in good condition. We do not have many male customers at Green Valley, but this is starting to grow. Maybe if they read this they will start to think more about using essential oils.
