Aromatherapy Oil Burner Blend

Hello everyone,  it’s lovely to be back here with a beautiful blend for you this week.

Do you ever feel a bit unsettled or wish you were somewhere else?  I have to admit after coming back from my break in Canberra, my soon to be new home, I felt very unsettled and resistant to get back into my life here.  I realised I need to relax a bit more, go with flow, enjoy the now, accept and embrace that I am exactly where I should be right now!!!

With that in mind I created this blend to help me feel relaxed, settled, centered, strong and in the moment.  Try it and let me know if you love it too!

cedarwood – is calming, soothing and harmonising.  It’s sedative action helps to reduce stress, depression and exhaustion, allowing the mind to relax and emotional tension to be released. It also helps to improve confidence and is strengthening, bringing a sense of self-empowerment and self-love. It allows focus and openness which enhances caring, endurance, balance and positivity.

cypress – is cleansing, tonifying and strengthening.  It is great for increasing vitality. It nourishes an over-burdened nervous system, reducing stress, nervous tension, restoring calm and soothing the spirit on a deep level.  It also assists in times of change, major decision-making and transition of any kind.  It also enhances honesty, inner wisdom, acceptance and harmony.

bergamot – is truly balancing.  It’s uplifting yet sedative nature make it perfect for reducing anxiety and depression.  It is strengthening and soothing, gentle and joyous, refreshing and restoring.  It is particularly good for burn-out and stress.  It brings relaxation, rejuvenation and positive energy.  It is great for motivation, strength and fulfillment.

Dee’s Delights

A very happy Tuesday evening to you!  Welcome to this weeks Dee’s Delights.  I hope you’ve had a fabulous week…I certainly have!  So much great stuff going on at the moment, so I’ll get right down to it and share some of the happy highlights…

Walk:  This magical sky captured on a beautiful afternoon walk.

afternoon sky

Work: maa organics website.  I did it! I started! That’s the main thing right?!  It’s evolving as we speak.

Work: massages in the peaceful Julatten Studio and the Daintree Rainforest…does it get any better?

B-School: I’ve met, messaged and spoken to some amazing women who are enrolled in B-School!  And now have two mega-inspiring ladies as accountability partners who I’ll be keeping in regular contact with.  We’ll be updating each other on our goals and progress as we make our way through the course.  Very exciting indeed!  And lots of goodies from the Path To Wellness for signing up through their link…thank you thank you thank you!

And it all began today!  YAY!!!  all downloaded and ready to go!

On a little disappointing note, I didn’t win the scholarship to the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.  A big congrats to the lucky lady who won.  It’s obviously not quite the right time for me yet, but I will find a way to do it.  I found out today that they often offer discounted prices – a big plus and something to keep my eye out for!

Hair Cut: by the lovely Jennifer Campbell.  Just a little trim and tidy up as the growing project continues!  It feels like it’s gradually getting there, even had some comments lately about how it looks longer!

Weekend  Away Wardrobe Planning: Help! Autumn! Just how cold is it going to be? I can almost hear some of you laughing at that…anything under 25 degrees Celsius is cold for me.  Hmmm, maybe I should pack my winter coat after all! And I do need some closed in shoes!…will have to pack my boots just in case!

and other decadent delights… coconut water  – blueberries – feeling honoured – phone catchups – Canberra connections – purring pussycats – new magazines and positive thoughts.

And from Pinterest this week, a reminder of just how wonderful you are…

Aromatherapy Oil Burner Blend

Good afternoon aromatherapy lovers!  Please accept my apologies for not sharing a beautiful blend with you last week.  It was a busy one and time just didn’t allow.  In fact the next few months are going to be jam packed with busy-ness so I might simplify this post a bit …I don’t want to stop doing it but I might not include quite as much detail.  I’ll see how I go.  Will definitely see you on Thursdays for a blend though!  Anyway, enough about me! and on with the show…

This weeks blend is for clarity and focus.  It will energise and balance your body and mind, allowing you to think clearly  and escape overwhelm city!  I don ‘t know about you but it’s just what I needed this week.

Basil – is strengthening and clearing to the mind, reducing mental fatigue.  It is strengthening and tonifying for the nervous system and especially useful for anxiety, fear, confusion and feelings of weakness or vulnerability.  It is uplifting and enhances concentration, making it great for decision making, enhancing purpose and clarity of thought.  It is very protective when the immune system is low, there is nervous exhaustion or a big change is occurring in your life.  It is anti-fatigue and purifying to both mind and body.

Geranium – is a fantastic balancer for the nervous system.  It relieves stress & depression, strengthening and balancing the mind.  It is fantastic if you are feeling run down.  It is also excellent for feelings of anxiety, indecisiveness and self doubt.  It is fortifying, comforting and calming, enhancing contentment, confidence and the ability to change.

Lemon – one of my all time favourites, I know I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again… lemon is sunshine in a bottle! An oil for happiness and fun!  It is refreshing and cleansing. It is uplifting and strengthening for the spirit.  It is energising for mind and body, bringing your energy into the “now”!  It is great for clearing a fuzzy mind, increasing motivation, ambition and positive decision making.  It eliminates negative thoughts, depression, anxiety, apathy and stress, replacing it with optimism, laughter, stability, motivation and joy!  A very nurturing oil for promoting self-care and love.  It is also an immune stimulant and has cleansing and detoxifying properties.
