Aromatherapy-a side trip with herbs

There are so many wonderful ways to incorporate herbs into our daily lives. Culinary is my speciality, but I enjoy and would like to share some other ways that can bring many great good things. 

Aromatherapy is one of those jewels.

It can be used for beauty, moods and emotions, massage and relaxation, healing and for the mind and spirit.

Today we will dwell on beauty....

I'm sure you are aware that our faces are a reflection of our inner being.

Smoking, too much alcohol, drugs, too much sugar, red meat and stress are a few of the worst enemies to our inner beauty and shows up in our outer appearance.

Essential oils have been used for cosmetic purposes for centuries, the most well known by the Egyptians, who included frankinsense and cedarwood in embalming procedures.

It is noted in scientific studies that certain essential oils, such as rose, frankinsense, neroli, and lavender, stimulate the regeneration of healthy new skin cells.

To get the most benefit from aromatherapy, it should be introduced by a Esthetician is someone trained through many hours of hands on and study to work in whole body massage and other therapy procedures.

Make it as much a part of your personal care routine as your nails and will love the results.

Astrology is a big player in our body, mind, and spirit...

Leo, the lion, runs from July 24th to August 23rd. Leo is a fire sign, and its ruling planet is the Sun.

Benzoin, myrrh, frankinsense and helichrysum have the Sun as their ruling planet.

Any of these warm, sultry, resinous essential oils makes a good choice for Leo. ( of which I am one )

For information and education on Essential oils there is no-one better than Faye Durham. You can contact Faye by visiting her Facebook page where she shares her educated knowledge of all things healing and natural.

And say hello for me...this is strictly a love promotion and not a reward program for me.
I love Faye and I love the E-oils she promotes.

Blessings for your week~
