Have you been feeling disconnected, scattered, or finding it hard to get into the groove of things with your day to day life? This can happen if you're taking in negative thoughts and energy of other people, stress from work or personal life and many other factors. Aromatherapy can help you to relax, clear your mind and also clear the air in your home or work space.
I have been using essential oils for many, many years and loved them so much I took many Ayurveda courses (essential oil plays a huge role in Ayurvedic practices), I took courses to get certified in Natural Holistic Remedies, Aromatherapy and Herbalism. I love creating pure oils that will benefit your body, mind and soul.
What is Aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural oils that are extracted from flowers, plants, bark, roots, stems etc. to enhance physical and mental well being.
Essential oils can help to balance, harmonize and promote the health of the body, mind and spirit.
The therapeutic particles then enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they can deliver their beneficial healing powers. Because they are highly concentrated, only a small quantity of essential oil is required.
To benefit from aromatherapy, you can diffuse essential oils through an essential oil diffuser, add a few drops to an aromatherapy accessory - such as a necklace, bracelet. You can also mix essential oil with your favorite carrier oil and massage onto your skin. Please note that because essential oil is highly concentrated, you want to make sure to dilute the essential oil before directly putting it onto your skin to avoid any irritation.
Interesting Facts About Essential Oil:
Did you know sense of smell is 10,000 times more powerful than any other sense and the recognition of smell is immediate? Other senses like touch travel to the brain via the spinal cord.
When a person inhales an essential oil that scent is carried by olfactory nerve cells in the nose to the olfactory system which then sends the aroma to the brain.
Depending on oil you may feel immediately alert or more relaxed.
During aromatherapy mood enhancers like serotonin and endorphins get released.
Essential oils have high antioxidant properties as measured by the Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC)
Antioxidants are compounds found in plants that stop or delay damage to the cells.
Foods such a fruit and vegetables have antioxidant powers. Cucumbers measure 60 units of antioxidant strength, while blueberries have an antioxidant strength of 2,400! No wonder they say blueberries are a super food! Apples measure at around 207 units while broccoli measures at 890 units!
Essential oils have a much higher strength. Some examples are: Citronella which measures at 312,000 units of antioxidant strength, cedarwood: 169,000 units of antioxidant strength, orange essential oil: 18,898 antioxidant strength and patchouli: 494,271 antioxidant strength. It's no wonder why essential oil can INSTANTLY make you feel better!!
Vada Beauty's essential oil blends are PURE essential oil with no carrier oils added. We want to make sure you're getting the most of your oil. Here are some simple guidelines to follow to ensure you are safely using our oils.
1) I personally do not recommend using essential oils if you are pregnant due to how highly concentrated they are and they can actually act as being toxic to the fetus.
2) To dilute essential oil for a healthy adult, use 5 drop essential oil to 10ml of carrier oil.
3) To dilute essential oil for children (3 and over) or elderly, use 2.5 drops of essential oil to 10ml carrier oil.
4) Do not ingest our oils. Are essential oils are NOT food grade oils.
