Orange Essential Oil “Winter’s Happy Oil”

February 12th, 2014 | Posted by Velda in OILS

Orange Essential Oil "Winter Happy Oil"

orange essential oil winter's happy oil


Orange Essential Oil has a rich, fruity scent that lifts the spirit while providing a calming influence on the body.  I like to think of it as winter’s “happy oil.” It is great to use when you have a group of cranky people in the house. It is very difficult to be depressed when the air is full of the scent of orange. This oil brings peace and happiness to the mind.

Breathe Away ‘Winter Blues’

January 3rd, 2014 | Posted by Velda in OILS

Breathe Away 'Winter Blues'

‘Winter blues’ is most severe during November, December, January and February.  Essential oils influence the limbic system, which is the area of the brain responsible for controlling our moods and the body’s circadian rhythm.  It is recommended to choose oils from both the ‘energizing’ and ‘emotional support’ categories to help alleviate the Winter Blahs.

Breathe Away 'Winter Blues'Here are suggestions for using Essential Oils to beat the ‘Winter Blues’: 1. Essential Oils can be diffused with diffusers, several drops placed on a tissue for inhaling, or simply smelling from an open bottle.  Remember to keep the open bottle about two inches from your nose.  2. Taking a warm bath with Essential Oils is great aromatherapy. 3. Essential Oils can be worn.

The following Essential Oils are recommended for the dark winter months: 1. Clary Sage, Joy, Hope, Lavender, Lemon, Grapefruit, or Valor, for relief from depression.  2. Basil or Rosemary for fatigue & mental confusion.  3. En-R-Gee, Motivation, Peppermint, or Sandalwood, for more energy.

Always look for Essential Oils that generate a positive emotion in you and only use therapeutic-grade Essential Oils.
