2020 11: Aromatherapy Newsletter November 2020

Green Valley Aromatherapy – November 2020

Hello everybody. Welcome to November!
November is a month of great change. With the October orange and yellow leaves decaying to a dull brown colour, and the weather shifting from crisp blue skies to overcast grey ones, it is imperative to take time out of your day to look after yourself. Especially now as the days get shorter, it is important to keep up a routine; having a cup of relaxing tea when you get home, or reading in the bath. I encourage all of my Aroma Friends to do something everyday that makes you feel at peace.
It is November already and the pandemic is still going on. I wonder if any of us knew it was going to be a problem for so long when it first started. This is why it is so important to wear masks if you go inside anywhere public, and wash your hands as often as possible; we all have to work together to keep each other safe if we want this thing to end anytime soon!
Here at Green Valley we made quick changes when the pandemic first started. We closed the shop, and were mostly operating with online orders. Now, the shop is open, with a smaller order window set up. Anyone can come by during business hours to place an order, although we do still encourage placing your order online or by phone for pickup. Thank you to everyone who has supported us through these trying times!
I hope everybody has a lovely month!
Best wishes,
Barb Greenwood.

Profile on Black spruce essential oil:

Black Spruce essential oil boasts an incomparably crisp, earthy, and fresh aroma. As a middle note, this oil blends easily with other essential oils invoking the smell of a great forest, tranquil and mysterious. Black Spruce is an evergreen tree that is found all over Canada, with the exception of the west coast and southern prairies. This hard-working essential oil is known to have antifungal, antibacterial and anti-parasitic properties.
Black Spruce is also an astringent, expectorant, nervine, and rubefacient essential oil. Further to the many gifts it provides, the regular use of Black Spruce essential oil may improve circulation, and strengthen the immune system. Its powerful anti-inflammatory properties make Black Spruce useful for arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and bronchitis.
Lastly, similar to a tranquil walk in the deep, silent woods– this essential oil is great for balancing the emotions, as it can be uplifting, stimulating, and help mental exhaustion.

The Jolly Holiday essential oil blend was created to invite all the joy and warmth of the holidays into any space in which it is diffused. This festive, spicy blend is composed of AmyrisCedarwoodCinnamon, and Mandarin essential oils.
