Soothing and Healing Essential Oils

Soothing and Healing Essential Oils

Lavender
Lavender relieves stress, has antidepressant benefits, helps with congestion, promotes sleep, keeps skin healthy, and is even a natural diuretic. Its fresh and floral scent is especially soothing at the end of the long day. Add a few drops in your bath or on your pillow to promote the ultimate relaxation.

Chamomile
With its fragrant scent and many health benefits, Chamomile has antidepressant capabilities and lifts mood overall. It is also a natural antibiotic, can reduce acne, and reduces inflammation. Sip chamomile tea at bedtime to help you have a more restful sleep and sweeter dreams.

Tea Tree
Tea Tree oil has many healing capabilities. Not only does it help boost the immune system but it helps with skin-related ailments such as cuts, burns, and dandruff. Tea Tree oil can be found in many hygiene products such as shampoo but applying it in its most condensed form as an essential oil will give you the ultimate results. Apply tea tree oil to bug bites or small cuts or burns to aid in holistic healing.

Sandalwood
Sandalwood is growing in popularity for its intriguing scent and many health benefits. It reduces inflammation and muscle aches, helps relieve coughing, and clears nasal mucous. Add a little sandalwood oil to your aching muscles at the end of a long day and feel soothed in minutes!

Peppermint
Peppermint may be recognized as one of winter’s scents, but its healing properties make it an essential oil perfect for any season. Peppermint is known to reduce nausea and aid in digestion. Its cooling nature helps to relieve skin irritations, and its strong smell helps awaken the mind and sharpen focus. Apply a few drops of Peppermint oil to your neck or temples in the morning to help energize your mind and awaken your body.

Bergamot
The fresh and citrusy aroma of Bergamot oil is stimulating and helps to balance emotions. It can also be used for fighting bacterial and viral infections of the mouth. It also helps relieve skin conditions such as oily skin, eczema, psoriasis and acne. When using Bergamot, it is important to remember to stay out of direct sunlight. Next time you’re seeing skin imperfections, mix a few drops of Bergamot with jojoba oil and apply to the affected area for clearer skin and a healthier you!

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus is the perfect essential oil for when you’re feeling under the weather! It’s known to relieve cold and flu symptoms and especially helps relieve respiratory issues and migraines. Add a few drops of eucalyptus oil to a vaporizer to help beat the cold or flu; inhaling the aromatic steam will help you to breathe easier.

Patchouli

This oil is strongly grounding and centering. It’s very high in sesquiterpenes, which means it has the power to relax the emotional center of the brain, support emotional equilibrium and energize the mind. I do not care for the smell at all, so we will mix it with a citrus oil or lavender to create a more appealing scent. This should be applied topically or diffused.

Spearmint

This is such a stimulating scent, but it also helps relax the respiratory and nervous system. This is powerful is you feel like you’re in what I like to call “go-go-go mode.” Slowing your breathing down is one of the most powerful things you can do to relax your body. Spearmint can also help open and release emotional blocks (watch out for the tears here) and bring about a feeling of balance.

Neroli

The oil is to die for! But it’s also very expensive. The oils here are all a variety of price ranges, so everyone can find something to suit their budget. Here’s why neroli is worth looking into: It was used by the ancient Egyptians to support your body’s natural healing of the mind, body and spirit. It is stabilizing and strengthening to the emotions, promoting peace, confidence and awareness. It brings everything into focus!

 Rose

Oh Rose!!! This has the highest frequency among essential oils. It creates a sense of balance, harmony and well-being and elevates the mind. It creates a magnetic energy that attracts love and brings joy to the heart.

Ylang ylang

If you’re looking for a calming essential oil that covers all your bases — calming, relaxing, stress relieving and supporting healthy sleep — this is your essential oil. This oil supports relaxation, balances male and female energies and restores confidence and equilibrium. And again, if you find an oil that you aren’t in love with scent-wise, just add a citrus oil, mint oil or lavender.

 Lemon

The perfect calming essential oil for morning. I LOVE to start my morning by diffusing lemon and spearmint. Also super helpful for getting kids moving and motivated for school. This oil is stimulating, invigorating and promotes a deep sense of well being.

 Melissa

One more final single essential oil to try is Melissa. It brings out gentleness. Because of its powerful effect on the limbic part of the brain (the center of emotions and memory) it is highly calming and balancing to the emotions.

Symbolic meanings of the winter


Winter Meanings

Most people feel that winter is pretty drab. It’s understandable: cold, very little daylight, short days and even longer nights. This season of the year is the time when everyone goes into hibernation. If you look at winter solely through a negative lens, that’s all you will see. If you examine it more specifically, though, you will be able to see that like all other things, winter has its perks (and certainly strong symbolism).

Winter is a season to sit back and think. Think about the past year. Think about what you have achieved and what you had planned. This is also a period to plan for the future. Make new resolutions and focus on the coming season of spring. Plan for Christmas and the associated socializing and festivities.

When we think about season symbolism, we need to remember that winter is just one of the cycles. There will be light once again at the end of this season. Use this period to bring clarity in your life.

Snow Symbolism

Another huge element of winter (at least in most cold places) is snow. This powdery white substance is highly symbolic – purity, calm, reflection, take your pick. Like all seasons, snow is a transitional entity. It falls between water and ice, the edge of liquid and solid. It still has the fluidity of motion, but not compared to its former, unfrozen degree. It is truly incredible what Mother Nature can do with the element of water.

Snow has an inherent softness and gentleness as it flows down from the sky. However, it could also be involved in devastating blizzards. This mirrors human nature and all of the natural world, actually. It is like a yin and yang: a duality that represents the double-folds of existence.

Winter Symbolism

In a way, winter is the most regal of seasons. It commands attention compared to all of the other seasons and takes somewhat of a cutthroat approach: only the strongest and most resourceful survive. Deer, birds, and the other scavengers who use cunning, wit, and patience to get food and stay warm are perfect examples of this.

Regal winter is also incredibly creative, although it might not immediately seem so. What is creative about a white day and a dark night? Think of the beautiful ice crystals that appear on the coldest of days, hanging down from houses, garages, and even plants. Snowflakes themselves are incredibly artistic. After all, they say, like fingerprints, “no two snowflakes are alike”.

When applied to our human lives, the cold usually drives as inward- unless

you are enjoying the fun of winter sports. Being “stuck” inside is the perfect time to immerse yourself in your own creative outlets. With nothing to distract you, you have the ability to be a boundless volcano of creativity and ingenuity. Now is the time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. Throw out the old and dated ideas and allow your mind to wander and create new, innovative ones.

Your meditation can be smoother, more concentrated, and produce greater results. Last but not least, winter is the season of festive holidays. No matter what religion or culture you associate with, there is something for everyone towards the end of the year.
