One stop to Cool! Cooling Summer Massages, Workshops and Essential Oil Blends!

 


SUMMER IS OFFICIALLY HERE. I have definitely been enjoying the mild summer so far but some days the heat can get to you when you are least expecting it. As with most things, heat can be complicated but there happens to be an essential oils for all kinds of heat this summer. These oils and more will be delivered right to you via me when you book your next cooling massage!

Do you feel stress in your gut?

Whether it's from eating one too many hot dogs at Coney Island or just internalizing your feelings and letting them bubble up in your tummy, stomach fire can stop you in your tracks on a hot day.  Add a littleBERGAMOT to your inner wrist to not only ease stomach fire and indigestion but also ease anxiety by encouraging the wearer to "let go." The green color of this oil, a lovely member of the citrus family nourishes  as well as cools and calms the heart.  When agitation arises and nervous tension spreads from your heart into your belly, use bergamot on the breastbone to let go of built up tension that is keeping you from feeling free in your life.  

Do you feel stress in your neck and shoulders?
Its Yang Season,  the time of the year with the most movement and hot energy. Heat moves up and sometimes can get stuck in the neck and shoulders causing headaches. You know what also causes headaches? Hangovers.  If you are feeling a little overheated from that extra margarita or feeling a crick in your neck form too many blasts of AC add PEPPERMINT to your neck in a spray bottle.  It works to cool your muscles and is a dream on the back of your neck on a hot summer day.  Add peppermint oil to some lavender water and take your mix to the beach! It feels clean to wear this oil and is very refreshing.

Do you feel like you are always on the go?
Literally,  you keep going and going and when you finally sit down your mind still doesn't stop. Sleep can seriously be affected by this and the great thing about SANDALWOOD is it stops the mind.  If you want to balance out the season with a slow, cooling restorative or meditation practice,  wear this oil on your feet or the back of your head to cool the scalp and the brain.   It aids in practices of this nature because it brings you into the moment and gives your mind a nice break from thinking about thinking.  It encourages the base and the crown chakras to unite and is perfect for battling sleep.

Lavender flowers have a harmonizing effect on the nervous system. They will act as a sedative in conditions of mental and emotional agitation and unrest, calming the mind, comforting feelings and alleviating fears.
