Lauren's Spring Aromatherapy
Exploring the practice of Aromatherapy is a beautiful way to enjoy the sacred scents of early spring.
Here are some ways that I use the oils this time of year:
Tulsi Oil also known as Holy Basil is a wonderful oil to clear the stagnation of winter and open the body specifically the respiratory system as well as the mind to the lightness of spring. I always carry my tulsi oil in my purse during the winter/spring transition time. You can take a few drops and rub it on your wrists breathe it in and rub the excess on your chest or place 10 drops in a diffuser and let it fill your home.
I also love this spring synergy blend from the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies:
Lemon, Lavender, and Clary Sage are precious plant allies that help us feel balanced and inspired as we move out of winter and embrace all the new growth and promise of Spring!
Lemon (Citrus limon): Refreshes and dispels negative feelings. Uplifts mood. Anti-microbial. Excellent for all-purpose cleaning and clearing.
Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia): Calms anxiety. Promotes emotional balance. Antimicrobial and antifungal. Excellent for all-purpose cleaning.
Clary Sage (Salvia sclarea): Calming nervine with antidepressant properties. Clears negative energy and helps balance mood.
