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.
