hangover2Today’s blog is the last on hangovers for a while and it is for those of you who party a little too much on a night when you have to go to work the next morning. I have an aromatherapy formula that will give you the stimulation you need to get the children off to school and get you to work. This formula has a diuretic effect. Use this formula like the one in the last blog; put 8 drops in a bath, rub 2 neat drops around your liver area and 2 neat drops on the back of the neck. Also, like with yesterday’s formula, drink plenty of water and take honey in it too.

The Aromatherapy Hangover Formula for Workers

Blend together and bottle in these proportions.

hangoverThe best remedy for a hangover is sleep and some extra rest and relaxation. If you can sleep late and take it easy the next day, here is a relaxing blend of essential oils that will help your body deal with what it went through the night before in the name of fun.

The TLC Hangover Cure

  • 5 drops fennel
  • 3 drops lavender
  • 5 drops sandalwood
  • 10 drops lemon

Blend these in an amber colored bottle to have ready for the next emergency. Use 8 drops in a bath, rub 2 neat drops around your liver area (the right side of the body near the diaphragm and stomach) and 2 neat drops on the back of your neck. Drink plenty of water with honey dissolved in it and also eat a spoonful of honey into which you’ve blended 2 drops of carrot oil.  Tomorrow, I’ll have one more blend for the days you have to go to work after that fun night out that resulted in a hangover.

Every Monday at work, I hear stories about people having too much to drink over the weekend. Too much alcohol leads to dehydration and most of us have suffered the other yucky sensations like nausea, headache, and dizziness. I don’t drink anything stronger than sparkling cider or sparkling grape juice any more; but I remember those sensations as if it was yesterday.

If you plan on drinking at any time, you can take some preventive measures such as drinking a higher quality liquor or drinking plenty of water before you drink alcohol as this slows down the absorption rate and helps the body to cope better. You can also take at least 1000 mg of vitamin C before going to sleep. People always say to drink black coffee to help you sober up but that only makes things worse. Drink plenty of water after drinking alcohol because that will help to flush the toxins out of your body. Unfortunately, you’ll feel tipsy again until you go to the bathroom a couple of times.

These morning after essential oils will help return your body to its pre-alcohol state: juniper, sandalwood, grapefruit, lavender, carrot, fennel, rosemary, and lemon. Make your own blend from this list, using  a total of 6-8 drops in a bath or 4 drops in an inhalation.

Body oils are all the rave these days. As consumers become more and more conscious of what goes into their skin and bodies, Body oils come highly preferred for several reasons. For one thing, oils are non-greasy and incredibly hydrating. They absorb well and locks in moisture longer without drying out your skin.

Compared to creams and lotions, body oils are more affordable than most moisturizer brands Also, the scent of perfume body oils do not rub off easily and can last all day. That means you don’t have to put it on every now and then – thus making it an economical choice, too. Body oils are highly concentrated and its moisturizing qualities have the ability to enhance your skin’s quality. Because they are becoming more and more popular, there are now plenty of body oil brands in the market. The best ones are made organic and chemical-free, and come infused with root, fruits, flowers, and leaves extracts. These natural ingredients can work wonders for your skin.

Of course there are still people who think oil and skin don’t really mix well. But all it takes is for them to try and feel the benefits of body oils for themselves. When it comes to keeping your skin healthy and well-hydrated, using body oils is worth a shot.

How To Use Body Oils

Author: Dr. Larita

My brother passed away in 2000 but before he did, he loved body oils. He  had his favorite scents  for himself as well as scents he liked for his lady friends. He kept trying different scents until he found one that he absolutely loved. The first time he purchased a bottle of the oil he liked best, he asked for the largest bottle we have.

Well, when he came back and asked for another bottle before a month was up I asked him if he had spilled the bottle or given it away. He told me he had used it all! I explained to him and I’m advising you; it only takes a small amount of body oil for you to smell wonderful. The oils blend in with your body chemistry creating a signature scent that is all your own and the scent lasts all day. You may not smell it yourself after a while (your nose gets used to it) but others will and you will receive many complements about how wonderful you smell.

Essential oils can be used in your bath four different ways. First, you can just add them neat to your bath water and swish it around. You will have a luscious aroma plus the therapeutic properties of whichever oil you use. The oils can also be used  to make homemade bubble baths, bath oils, and bath crystals.

If you like bath crystals, you will love the fact that you can make your own and not pay a lot of money for fancy packaging like you do when you buy them in the stores. To make your own you will need some attractive glass jars. You can save them over the year for next holiday season or for any occasion when gifts are given. If you don’t have any for this season, you can put the crystals in a small gift bag from a party store or simply put them in a plastic sandwich bag.

All you need to make your bath crystals is washing soda crystals, a little food coloring, and the essential oils of your choice. Just crush the washing soda crystals, add a little food coloring (your choice of color) and the essential oil you want for that color. Use a corresponding color for the essential oil you choose like yellow for lemon or red for peppermint. To each 9 ounces of colored crystals add 20 drops of essential oils. Tie a ribbon around the jar or bag and voila, you’ve got your holiday gift.

Buying Gifts for Mom

Author: Dr. Larita

I always had trouble figuring out what to get my mom for holidays like her birthday, Christmas, or Mother’s Day. She was the kind of woman who already had everything she needed and didn’t really make requests or anything like that because she was content with the things she had. As the woman who raised me though, I still felt obligated to purchase her a nice gift from time to time.

One thing you can generally rely on when it comes to purchasing gifts for a loved one is body care items. Most people, men and women, like soaps and lotions with nice fragrances. She was especially pleased when I purchased an assortment of online natural products for her. I bet your spouse, mom or dad will love it too.

2532163_origMy sister recently became very interested in the benefits of aromatherapy. She’s been telling me a lot about her experiences with it and says that even she was surprised by the results she’s gotten in regards to her mood and mental clarity. She has all these different essential oils at her home and oil diffusers, which apparently are one of the most important aspects of aromatherapy.

Her interest in aromatherapy has piqued my curiosity and she got me some aromatherapy gifts for my birthday after I told her that I was interested but didn’t really know where to start. She got me an oil diffuser and a couple of her favorite essential oils and instructed me on how to properly use them to get the most benefits out of aromatherapy.

I love to use aromatherapy products to create a relaxing mood in my home. Having these products around is just what I need to let go of of my stress and worries and get into a relaxed and calm state of mind. Ever since I discovered the power of aromatherapy, I have been enjoying its benefits for my life and my health every day.

There are a lot of awesome aromatherapy gifts out there, like the oil burners that I like to use myself. These burners, also called diffusers, make it easy for me to have a relaxing or energizing fragrance throughout my home. I love to use them on a daily basis when I get home from work and on the weekends as well. They really put me in a great mood.

When I want to give someone a meaningful aromatherapy gift, I go for oil burners because they feature an elegant and classic design plus they deliver  fragrances that can energize or relax me and also lift my spirits. These gifts are unique and always appreciated. They are great to give to a friend or a family member for a special occasion like a birthday or a holiday like Christmas.
