The March wind blows cold and snow is a very real possibility. If it does end up snowing, what will the poor robins do?!
March is the most unpredictable month of the year; weather wise I mean. Dressing in layers, and bundling up is the only way to “be prepared” as the boy scouts say.
There is no excuse to not surround yourself with essential oils at this time! They can help protect your home from pests and may make your transition into the new season much smoother. Diffusers, aromatherapy jewelry (like necklaces and bracelets), and little doo-dads that clip onto the vents in your car make it easy to carry and use essential oils for their respective health benefits.
Even though the weather is unpredictable, it is starting to get lighter at night; this seems like a fair trade off. I do not do well with darkness. I seem to need light. Seasonal Affective Disorder is something that many people have to deal with. It is very cumbersome and truly affects your day to day life. Here at Green Valley, we have a blend that was created just for S.A.D called “Sunshine”. It has worked for many people and the odd few it hasn’t worked for have made small adjustments to the recipe to suit their sense of smell. One person I know does not like Pettigrain essential oil, so she replaced it with Vetivert essential oil and it works great!
In the shop we are still very busy. London Drugs orders seem to come in every month or so and we have so many people coming in to our shop to ask questions. Everyone seems to be interested in essential oils and they all get excited to see the wonderful results they can bring.
On the 20th of March it is the first day of Spring! That is something to look forward to.
On the 17th of March it is St Patrick’s day. In England where we lived there was a parade in the day, and dances at night.
Have a great spring,
Vetivert essential oil is steam distilled from the roots of the grass. It has a beautiful, sweet, earthy aroma, and it is one of the thicker oils.
Many aromatherapists do not want to wait for it to drop from the bottle, which is a shame as it is a wonderful healing oil. Vetivert essential oil is very calming and can help reduce anxiety. It is mentally balancing and deeply relaxing. If you are thinking about stopping smoking or losing weight, make Vetivert part of your routine.
Vetivert is classified as a Nervine, which means it is healing to the nerves. This essential oil may helps with rheumatism and muscle pain and it is good for skin problems such as acne and oily skin. Being a base note, Vetivert essential oil is a good place to start when creating a blend, as it has many beneficial properties, and helps to round out the higher notes.
