Green Valley Aromatherapy – August 2018
The month of August is usually hectic. You are trying to make the most out of the remaining days of summer while your children are at home. In this hot summer heat, being around water is a top priority. With Autumn right around the corner, you are trying to make plans to keep everyone busy, all the while planning for the upcoming school year.
This time of year can be traumatic for kids who are going to a new school, or changing classes. Essential oils can make this season more comfortable!
For example, Eucalyptus Radiata goes great in sports bags and backpacks. The peppermint aroma in this variety of Eucalyptus is wonderful for disguising the sweaty smell from shoes or clothes. It is also a good immunostimulant, which helps protect from childhood ailments. Mandarin is very calming and uplifting, and is a safe essential oil for children. Lavender goes great in the diffuser at home, to keep everyone happy and less anxious.
If you were born in August, your birth sign is either Leo or Virgo. Leo people are usually helpful by nature. They are admired for their kindness, and they love to be in the limelight. On the other side of the coin, they can be frank when trying to get their point across, and are very headstrong. Virgo people are very strong, loyal, analytical, kind, and practical. Their weaknesses are shyness, worry, and being overly critical or themselves and others.
I am none of those. I was born under Capricorn, the Goat. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for baby goats. My boys were both born under the sign of Cancer, the crab. Though, you will never find two more opposing personalities!
One of them is a qualified Aromatherapist, the other does not want to know about the practice. If you read last months newsletter, I was telling you that this particular son and family had gone to Australia for a visit. They were taken to a lake that all the locals frequent, which happened to have tea tree leaves in the water. He went into the lake with badly marked legs due to Psoriasis, but when he came out they were healed! His daughter is now working at Green Valley and his wife is a doing a great job marketing for us.
Maybe we will end us as an aromatherapy family!!!
All the best,

Profile on Castor Oil
Castor oil (Ricunus communis) is a humectant. It creates a protective barrier on the skin, as well as attracting and retaining moisture. It is good for dry and chapped skin, and is readily absorbed by the epidermis. We have heard that is dissolves cysts, growths, and warts, and softens corns and prevents scars.
