However, sometimes the pain returns. When it does, I’m ready. Instead of OTC pain medications, I a natural essential oil pain blend. This doesn’t have the side effects associated with NSAIDs. Also, at least for me, it works better than popping a pill. Rubbing a diluted aromatic recipe on the painful area brings fast relief.

These oils can be burned into the air of your surroundings or placed onto your temple or shrine if you have one. They can also be rubbed into your pulse points (but be sure to dilute with water or a vegetable oil first if the label calls for it!), put on a cotton ball and slipped into your pillowcase, or added to water and sprayed as a mist on your hair and clothes.

 Welcoming Blend - Make your guests feel comfy with a warm  and optimistic blend of one teaspoon rooibos tea, ½ teaspoon  cloves, 5 green cardamom pods, and a pinch of nutmeg, a  spice that McWatt says is great for filtering out negative energy.

Some research suggests that the scents of lavender and lemon essential oil may be helpful, but the studies are specific to those with dementia. For example, a 2015 study of 186 dementia patients, published in the journal BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine, found that lavender essential oil had calming effects, especially in combination with acupressure—the application of pressure to points on the body. In an earlier study of 71 people with dementia, published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, lemon balm essential oil reduced signs of agitation, such as throwing objects or screaming.

While scientific data is still lacking in regards to the correlation between preventing or treating illnesses and aromatherapy, a variety of studies have found it to be an effective alternative method for treating infections, stress, and many other health issues.

Essential oils are extracts taken from plants, each with specific uses. Pure essential oil is extremely concentrated. Indeed, a ton of lavender produces only 80 cups of lavender oil! As a result, aromatherapy uses the oils in very small doses, typically through direct inhalation, in a room diffuser or as a topical treatment. It is rarely ingested. And, while it’s important to know when to use which essential oils, it’s essential to know when not to use certain oils. For example, peppermint is not safe for pregnant women or for patients with some types of heart disease. “Not having good information can lead to unsafe uses,” said Susan Kristiniak, DHA, MSN, associate director of Palliative Care for Penn’s Health System, who has been a Nurse Aromatherapist for 10 years.

There are different types of japanese baths: from the hot springs where you bathe in natural ponds, to modern ceramic or acryl tubs equipped with recirculating systems. A tub relatively unknown in the west is the wooden tub, which combines the advantages of being compact and built with natural material. A wooden bathtub has high thermal insulation and soft touch, moreover it generates a soothing cedar aroma when filled with hot water.

Crazy day or can’t sleep? Soaking in the tub is one of my favorite ways to distress. If your day totally sucked (or cramps are getting you down), you can at least end it on a good note! Take your soak up a notch with aromatherapy bath bombs. You’ll get a dose of moisturizing body oil along with the mind and body benefits of essential oils. The feel good scents are one of the easiest ways to soak away stress, calm PMS symptoms and turn your mood around.
