Everyday Aromatherapy: aromatherapy and feeling good

The Happiness Mission: aromatherapy and feeling good

Last week we introduced you to our movement #everydayaromatherapy and this week we’d like to continue the conversation. On Monday we celebrated International Day of Happiness, so this week that’s what we’re all about (no Wiggles pun intended).

Often people don’t associate aromatherapy with happiness, but there’s a concept called scent memory, perhaps you have heard of it, or maybe you haven’t.

Our nose is the strongest sense in our body and therefore often our sense of smell is the first thing that connects us to our memories, even if we can’t put the scent into words. Certain essential oils evoke joyful memories, though everyone’s will be different. Which essential oil holds happy and joyful memories for you? Maybe you need more of it in your life.

Scent memory is powerful, but if you can’t think of an essential oil these are some common essential oils that are reminiscent or associated with happiness.

How to be Happy

We don’t actually have a tell-all answer for this one, but we can suggest some essential oils and how to use them that we associate with happiness.

 

Citrus oils

We’re talking lime, lemon, mandarin, sweet orange and grapefruit or for a quick-fix blend use Happy and Calm blend. These citrus oils are uplifting and relieve anxiety. Sweet orange in particular conveys a sense of warmth and joy, energising everyone who smells it.
How to:
Add five drops to a diffuser or oil burner during the day to create an ambience of joy to make you feel uplifted.

 

Roman Chamomile

Roman chamomile has sedative and calming properties, and a calm person is a happy person. The delicate scent of Roman chamomile is harmonising, serene and peaceful, promoting spiritual awareness and inner peace. If you’re after a blend containing Roman chamomile, try our Five Element Water blend to feel tranquil and happy.
How to:
Add five drops to a diffuser or oil burner Roman chamomile by itself or mixed with other essential oils.
Put a few drops on a tissue or handkerchief and place under your pillow for a happy and mellow night’s sleep.

 

Ylang Ylang

The rich and floral scent of ylang ylang is euphoric, passionate, sensuous and uplifting. This amazing essential oil is said to dispel anger, leaving space for happiness and joy. If you’re after a blend containing ylang ylang, try our Five Element Fire blend to express joy and happiness. If you’re in a balmy mood, trying our Relax Aromatherapy balm containing ylang ylang.
How to:
Add five to seven drops to a diffuser or an oil burner or add it to your skincare and body routine.
Alternatively, put a few drops on a tissue or handkerchief, or our Relax Aromatherapy balm, and keep in your bag or pocket for when needed.

 

We hope you all find happiness this week, be it in the realms of aromatherapy or in your everyday life.

Happy Happiness Week to all of our customers!

From,

The Perfect Potion family

Everyday Aromatherapy: finding new places for aromatherapy in your life

#Everyday Aromatherapy

At Perfect Potion, we’ve already integrated aromatherapy into our everyday life. It permeates our home and work. But we would love to involve everyone else. Those who consider themselves avid aromatherapists are experienced in adding aromatherapy into the everyday. But aromatherapy isn’t an elite club where only those who study it can join. Aromatherapy is for everyone! Everyone can enhance their wellness and realise the benefits of using essential oils in their everyday life. So how can you integrate aromatherapy into your everyday?

Laundry

To kick off #everdayaromatherapy we’d like to talk about laundry. Not many people would think to add essential oils to their laundry ritual (or chore), but adding essential oils can deliver practical and therapeutic benefits. It is best to add these wonderful essential oils to a non-scented or low scented laundry powder or liquid.

Dog/Cat Odour

Does your best friend sleep on your bed? Snuggle time is all well and good but to combat that ‘doggy’ or ‘feline’ smell that lingers you can add essential oils when washing your sheets. When adding your laundry powder or liquid, simply add 2-3 drops of essential oil on top to keep your sheets smelling fresh and to take advantage of the many anti-bacterial properties of many essential oils.

We recommend:
Peppermint
Broad leaved peppermint eucalyptus
Lavender

Undergarments

We recommend:
Geranium

As this month’s essential oil is Geranium, we feel that we should probably tell you how to use it. In-depth details into its properties, therapeutic benefits and psychological benefits can be read in Sal’s Geranium Monograph. But how can you incorporate it into your everyday if you’re just starting out discovering the world of aromatherapy? Or maybe you’re an expert and looking for more ways to introduce it into your household?

Geranium is a sweet scented floral essential oil. When washing your delicates, add 1-2 drops of essential oil on top of your usual laundry liquid or powder for all-day sweet smelling undergarments.

Smelly Socks/Work Out Gear

Working out and keeping busy is great for our bodies, but not so great for the smell of our socks. Often parents of active children or people who exercise regularly wash their socks separately because of the strong odour. The same goes for workout gear, sports clothes and even boxing wraps. To take advantage of the anti-bacterial properties of essential oils and to give your sweaty garments a good clean, try adding 4-5 drops on top of your usual laundry liquid or powder.

We recommend:
Peppermint
Eucalyptus
Lemon myrtle
Broad leaved peppermint eucalyptus 

 

These are just a few ideas to incorporate aromatherapy into your everyday life.

The Aroma Tree theory embraces all aspects of aromatherapy.  Whether you are a beginner or a professional aromatherapist you will gain an incredible insight into using essential oils.

About the Aroma Tree Master Class

Aromatherapy is one of the most popular forms of natural therapies available to us. However, our understanding of aromatherapy is still poorly understood. What makes essential oils so exciting, but at the same time so complex, is the fact that they are the only ‘plant based remedies’ that work on all levels of our wellbeing – our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing.

As an aromatherapy educator, I often noticed how frustrated and stressed people become when they have to learn the individual properties and actions of every single essential oil. The aroma tree is a concept I developed to help us make sense of the complexity of essential oils by identifying the relationships that exist between essential oils from different parts of the ‘aroma tree’.

However, I noticed that there was a pattern. For example; essential oils extracted from the leaves of trees all have a similar effect on the respiratory system; seed oils all have a potent effect on the digestive system; flower oils have a calming influence on our psyche and resin oils have the ability to heal wounds. From here the concept of the Aroma Tree developed.

In this one day Aroma Tree Master Class you will learn:

Lost language of plants

I introduce you to the very important relationship and pattern between the botany of the plant, traditional folklore, symbolism, mythology of plants and their healing effects.

Learn about each part of the aroma tree

I introduce you to each part of the aroma tree such as the aroma, chemistry and pharmacology, essential oil safety, the affects that essential oils have on our psyche, the relationship between essential oils and our personality, the influence that the oils have on the chakras and the energetics of the essential oils according to traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda.

How to use the aroma tree 

I explain how you can develop a holistic framework to help you unleash the potent healing properties of essential oils. The Aroma Tree master class will also enhance your blending skills. At the end of this master class you will put your blending skills to practice by making your own aromatherapy blend based on the principles of the Aroma Tree.

About the Aromatherapy and Five Elements Master Class

My own journey in the field of natural therapies began with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I studied acupuncture before I had even heard of aromatherapy in 1985. I was fascinated by the philosophy that underpinned TCM.

I could see that a person’s emotions played a very important role in determining what type of illness they may develop. We all have stress in our lives but why do some people react so differently to a stressful event compared to others. This led me to believe that our personality may also determine how we respond and react to certain situations.

TCM provided me with a wonderful framework to see with so much clarity the relationship between the body, mind and soul. At the same time I discovered aromatherapy. I was fascinated at the affect scent could have on one’s psyche – it is immediate. However, I was disappointed at the rather prescriptive approach to learning about essential oils. We were simply told to remember all the different properties associated with the essential oils and select the oils to match the symptoms and conditions of the patient.

My knowledge of TCM has allowed me to see a pattern in the properties of the oils. For example; Roman chamomile is known as a cholagogue and hepatic. This is associated with the Liver and Gall Bladder.  It is very interesting that most aromatherapy books also recommend using Roman chamomile to reduce irritability and aggression. This perfectly relates to the Wood Element in TCM.

As an acupuncturist and an aromatherapist, I have been able to integrate concepts of TCM and aromatherapy to provide us with a holistic framework in which we can effectively use essential oils to promote wellbeing of the body, mind and soul.

In this one day Aromatherapy and Five Elements Master Class you will learn:

The basic concepts of TCM
I introduce you to the fundamental concepts that underpin TCM philosophy such as Yin and Yang, the origins of disease according to TCM, the role of Qi, the meridians and acupressure points and their relationship with the Five Elements.

The importance of ‘Knowing How’
I introduce you to the concept of ‘knowing how’ first mentioned in the Nei Jung – considered the most ancient text on TCM. ‘Knowing how’ refers to the practice of promoting longevity and wellbeing through self-knowledge, positive attitude and spiritual practice.  I explain how the principles of the Five Elements can be used to help us identify five different constitution type By ‘knowing how’ these constitution types affect our behavior and health we can learn to prevent illness and disease.

The relationship between each of the Five Elements and health and wellbeing
I introduce you to each of the Five Elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water. We examine how each of the elements influences our body, mind and spirit. We identify the personality traits associated with each of the elements and how an imbalance of each element may lead to physical, emotional and spiritual health imbalances.

Strategies to balance each of the Five Elements
On the day you will be given a comprehensive questionnaire to complete to identify the status of each of your Five Elements. I then introduce you to strategies to balance your Five Elements using aromatherapy. At the end of this master class you will put your blending skills to practice by making your own aromatherapy blend based on the Five Elements.

About the Integrative Aromatherapy Master Class

I believe that aromatherapy can play a vital role in the future of a successful integrative healthcare system.  However what do we mean by a successful integrative healthcare system?

I also believe that the true holistic nature of essential oils is still poorly understood.

Cardamon Truffles

These little bites of bliss take the classic truffle to a whole new level. Sweet, rich tones of decadent cashew butter, crunchy coconut and perfectly spiced with exotic cardamom. I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said these little dessert balls are somewhat addictive!

Cardamom is traditionally used in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, as well as being used medicinally to treat digestive issues, inflammation and nausea.

1 Cup almond meal
1 Cup desiccated coconut
2 Tblsp coconut oil
1/2 Cup cashew butter
3 Tblsp organic honey
1/2 Cup crushed pistachios
1 Tblsp cardamom powder
1/2 tsp sea salt

Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, and thoroughly combined to all is well incorporated. Place mix in the fridge for an hour or so to firm.

Remove from the fridge and roll 1 teaspoon of mixture into little balls, and place on a plate or tray. Refrigerate again for at least 30 minutes before enjoying every mouthful of these unique and delicious truffle delights.
