The busy and hectic world we live in can challenge us all at times. The stresses of work and everyday living can cause our emotions and inner-being to become out of balance. In my case, I need a little extra emotional support once a month, as I suffer from the dreaded PMS. I take a balance of herbs, use lots of oils and try to look after myself and take a little more ‘me time’. I’ve recently discovered a gem of a product on the MyPure website – a lovely blend of oils, to harmonise the emotions, and restore serenity and balance.
This beautiful blend from Acorelle is 100% organic, and contains Benzoin Resin, Spanish Lavandin Super, Italian Bergamot, Brazilian Green Tangerine, French Mandarin Orange, Bourbon Geranium and Madagascar Ylang-Ylang.
Each oil was wonderfully chosen for the properties I’ll summarise below:
Benzoin Resin – Promotes a warm feeling, stimulating the heart and circulation. Has been used as an anti-depressant and also has a sedative effect. It is thought to have a balancing effect on the nervous system.
Lavandin – This oil can help to boost self-esteem and confidence. It’s also good at releasing tension in muscles, when applied to the body.
Bergamot – if you drink Earl Grey tea, you’ll already be familiar with the lovely, comforting aroma of this herb. Known for releasing stress and tension in the mind and body.
Green Tangerine & Mandarin Orange – Both uplifting oils, great for nervous tension, stress and anxiety. Can help to keep a restless person (or child) calm.
Bourbon Geranium – A highly valuable oil in aromatherapy, known for its ability to balance and regulate the body and mind (strengthens immune, glandular and nervous systems). It’s particularly great for PMS and other emotions.
Ylang-Ylang – A well known aphrodisiac, this lovely oil can also induce feelings of joy and hope.
Obviously I’ve only touched the surface when discussing the qualities of these wonderful oils. However, I’m sure you can see just how much of an amazing combination this oil is. I’ve had an absolutely wonderful experience with it this month, I can’t sing its praises highly enough!
For starters, I’ve been placing a few drops in my oil burner of an evening. It has an absolutely glorious smell – once which makes you want to keep taking extra deep breaths in, just to experience it more intensely. Particularly in the week before my period, when my emotions were up and down, this really gave me a sense of calm and I was able to shut off from everything else and the busy thoughts in my mind. I felt stabilised and able to cope with everything that I had going on.
I also suffer occasionally from tension headaches at this time of the month, and I put a few drops into base oil, for a lovely massage blend. Rubbing this into my shoulders and temples as and when required really helped. In fact, taking a blend in a small bottle to work, is a great idea to get you through the day.
It can also be added to the bath (mix with a little base oil first so that it blends better in the water), and ease the tensions of the day away.
A wonderful oil, which has really helped to make life a little more balanced, chilled and enjoyable. I highly recommend it if you’re looking for something to ease your tensions, or an oil to burn whilst meditating.
Thanks for reading – have a peaceful week!
