It's been awhile since I've written a post...pregnancy will do that to you I guess. Since it's my second child, I'm SO much busier than I was the first time around. Gone are the days of sitting in the sunshine, mug of tea in hand and a thick novel by my side, admiring my growing belly and dreaming of the baby inside. Instead my days are spent managing the life of my almost-four-year-old and chasing him around as best I can!
Just because I haven't been blogging, doesn't mean that I haven't been creating! I have three new blends to introduce.
The first blend that I created was a special request for a client that simply adores the scent of Patchouli EO and it came out beautifully. Patchouli is one of those love it or hate it oils...but it has all kinds of benefits including: being an antidepressant, an aphrodisiac, boosting energy and the immune system and helping the body rid itself of toxins.
Patchouli Power is a blend of: Patchouli, Bergamot & Myrrh. The Bergamot EO works to eliminate stress and worry while the Myrrh EO stimulates your mind and thoughts.
[Please note, due to the Myrrh content, Patchouli Power should be avoided during pregnancy.]
Harmonious Mama was created with myself and another dear friend that is also pregnant, in mind. We are both experiencing racing thoughts and a general sense of being overwhelmed at times and having too much going on in our heads due to all the hormones surging around. I find this bothers me most at night when I'm trying to sleep or when I wake up in the middle of the night and my mind immediately goes into a million different directions at once making it very hard for me to go back to sleep. I used Copiba EO as my base for the blend to aid with hormonal balance and to calm the mind.
Harmonious Mama is a blend of: Copiba, Geranium, Lavender, Ylang Ylang & Sandalwood. The Copiba works to gently balance hormones, and amplify the calming and relaxing effects of the Lavender. Geranium uplifts the spirits and clears the mind while Ylang Ylang calms nerves and helps to de-stress.
Deep Unwind was created specifically with my husband in mind. It is blended with a base of Ho Wood EO. Ho Wood is a relative to Rosewood and has many of the same benefits. Ho Wood tends to be a better choice since Rosewood is considered an endangered species. Ho Wood is especially good for creating a space of mental peace and quiet. The effects of Ho Wood are felt very quickly and it can be felt as an almost 'coming down' sensation in times of stress, overstimulation or overtiredness.
Deep Unwind is a blend of: Ho Wood, Lavender, Bergamot & Cypress. The Ho Wood creates the feelings of peace and 'brings down' the mind while the Lavender works to relax the body. Bergamot eliminates stress and worry and the Cypress has a sedative effect on both the body and mind.
[Please note, due to the Ho Wood content Deep Unwind should be avoided during pregnancy.]
