Healing scents

Healing scents: There was a wise old lady whose advice for almost everything was :

  1. Have a glass of wine
  2. Just blame it on your phone and say it’s been acting weirdly, off late
  3. Rub a little frankincense on it

Frankincense oil or Essential oil is an automatic mood lifter. A great aroma can work wonders on you.

The practice of aromatherapy dates back as far as 4000 BC,when the ancient Egyptians produced medicines, embalming agents, perfumes and cosmetics using scented oils. Chinese, Greek, Indian and Roman civilizations also regularly used scented oils in therapeutic activities. In the  5th C BC, the Greek physician Hippocrates promoted the health benefits of aromatic oils. Aromatherapy gathered public attention in 1937 after the French chemist Renee Maurice Gattefosse wrote a book, Aromatherapie. He mentioned in that book how he treated his burnt hand with Lavender oil and it worked wonders.

If you are new to essential oils, then put Lavender on your list. It’s a harmonizing and balancing oil as it easily mixes with other oils. Lavender can do everything from lowering anxiety levels to improve sleep quality. Just add a few drops in your bubble bath or soak your feet in Lavender water. Or simply put a few drops on your towel and gently inhale.

Eucalyptus oil is another wondrous thing. In these difficult times we are constantly checking ourselves for any cold symptoms. A simple sneeze makes us nervous and we immediately start to think of  theworst. Add a few drops of this oil in your shower gel or on to a steamed towel. Simply inhale. All your clogged nostrils will open up and cleanse your pores.
