The sun is still shining here in Brisbane but the weather is suddenly cooler. These crisp winter days and cooler nights can put a strain on your immune system, especially if you are strung out and fatigued from a stressful busy lifestyle.
To ward off the onset of any dreaded lurgies and protect your vital energy, incorporate some immune stimulating and restorative essential oils into your self-care regime for the next few weeks.
A wonderful blend to diffuse in your living or work spaces is a 1 drop sweet thyme, 2 drops palmarosa, 2 drops bergamot and 1 drop niaouli essential oils. This synergy of oils has antimicrobial, uplifting and restorative properties and it smells divine.
Using your diffuser for up to 1 hour only, three times a day is enough to get the therapeutic value. Always make sure you have adequate ventilation in the room.
Another purifying blend to cleanse body, mind and spirit is cajeput, lemon, lavender and peppermint.
Cajeput and lemon have antimicrobial properties boosting the immune system and combating germs; peppermint is pain relieving and warming, also clearing for the respiratory system/sinuses; lavender, the mother of all essential oils, calms and nurtures the nervous system encouraging the body to rest and restore.
This would be a wonderful blend for Aromatherapy massage or to use as a chest/back/neck/foot rub.
