Since ancient times, people have used scents to access spiritual realms, because the scent has many roles. It helps the mind focus and concentrate, relaxes the body and opens the heart. Fragrances create a connection between the conscious and the unconscious, widening the space between thoughts and this space allows one to unite with the universe. Meditation is a healthy way to reduce stress, it can slow down breathing and heart rate, normalize pressure and slow down aging. It brings clarity of thoughts and opens the mind. There are many types of meditations but each helps to calm the “voices” in your mind and allows one to enjoy the present moment without worrying about the past and future.

Essential oils can be used to enhance the meditative experience. An essential oil or synergy can be used in a scented lamp that fills the entire space shortly.

Personal blends of oils can also be made and applied to different parts of the body (pulse points, third eye, or rubbed between the palms). In this case, the essential oil is not applied directly to the skin but should be mixed with some base oil first. It is very important to choose an essential oil that suits you, otherwise, you will not be able to dedicate yourself to meditation.

We appreciate you taking the time to read our articles and hope you've found some interesting advice and oils to use. We will continue to inform you about the beautiful world of aromatherapy and the most interesting and useful essential oils. In order to keep in the right direction and provide more useful content, it would be great if you could take a few minutes and fill out our survey, it won't take much time, we promise. : )

Essential oils, due to their high concentration in aromatherapy, are almost never used in undiluted form. Carrier oils, also called base or vegetable oils, are used to dilute essential oils for massage. They are used in aromatherapy, a complementary therapy in which various essential oils are applied to the body to aid physical and emotional health and well-being. They primarily dilute concentrated essential oils so that they can be applied to the skin without side effects. Different oils offer different properties and the choice of certain oil may depend on the desired therapeutic result. Unlike essential oils that evaporate and have an extremely strong aroma, these do not evaporate and are generally of a mild odor.

Carrier Oil Types

Sweet almond oil, apricot seed oil, grape seed oil, avocado oil, peanut oil, olive oil, macadamia nut oil, sesame oil, walnut oil are some examples of carrier oils.

There are three groups of these oils:

1. Base oils

They represent the largest part in the massage oil – almond, sesame, hazelnut, olive, jojoba, macadamia.

2. Special oils

They make up a smaller part in the massage oil (very oily or too expensive to use on its own – avocados, nightshades, wheat germs.

3. Macerated or infused oils

They are obtained by soaking herbs in a carrier oil – marigold, aloe vera, poppy seeds.

Vegetable oils can be obtained from seeds and husk in two ways. The first is cold squeezing (up to 60 ° C) which is very expensive and is done much less often than the other way, which is hot squeezing (up to 200 ° C). In the second approach, the utilization is much higher (more oil is obtained) but such oil is exposed to temperatures, pressures and complicated processes, thus it obtains lower quality. As such, the cold-pressed oils are being used in aromatherapy. These oils contain all of their vitamins, minerals and healing fatty acids.

Vegetable oils are usually rich in mono and polyunsaturated fats, which means they are liquid at room temperature. This makes them a great choice for use in bottles or sprays. Some vegetable oils are rich in linoleic acid, which studies have proven to be best for people with oily skin. Other vegetable oils like olive oil are rich in oleic acid which is best for dry skin. People with mixed skin can use a blend of all vegetable oils.

There are some saturated fats that are great as base oil, such as the always powerful coconut oil.

Carrier Oils

Carrier Oils

Most of the oils that can be obtained in the supermarket are not squeezed by the cold method, but by heating, thus losing its healing properties.

Mineral oils are not used in aromatherapy because these oils are not a natural product. Mineral oils are also thought to prevent the absorption of essential oils into the skin.

Most base oils are odorless or light smell and do not interfere with the therapeutic properties of the essential oil. They can be used alone or with other oils to nourish your skin.

The carrier oil you buy should be 100% natural and undiluted. They should also be 100% safe to use, the exceptions here are natural oils enriched with Vitamin E, because Vitamin E in oil works as a preservative. After opening the container, make sure to store the oil in a refrigerator. If the percentage of polyunsaturated fats is high, as with Starflower (Borage Officinalis) and Evening primrose (Oenothera biennis), the oil can quickly burn, so refrigerate for not more than 6-8 months and then discard. Other oils could be kept in the refrigerator for around 2 years or in a cool, dark place for at least 1 year. However, if they smell bad, throw them away!

When we talk about the usage of essential oils – topical or external use is the most common one, which is to apply oils directly to the skin.

You carefully tip the oil bottle and drop 2-3 drops into the palm of your hand or right into the desired application area. This is considered an undiluted application. You may drop the oil in your hand, rub your palms together and massage the oil onto the skin.

But most of the time, you will want to dilute your essential oil with the carrier oil, which is any plain vegetable-based oil (olive, coconut, grape seed, apricot, almond, etc). Another reason why to dilute your oils is to allow them to cover a larger surface area.

Also, keep in mind you will always want to dilute your oils when using them with children.

Certain oils are called – hot oils because they can irritate the skin. Oils like cinnamon, peppermint and oregano are examples of hot oils.

Caution!

Never put essential oils in your eyes or ears!

TIP:

When you are starting out, it is a good idea to only start with one oil at a time for a few days before trying another one.

CHARACTERISTICS:

Plant: Citrus reticulata L.
Odor: sweet-bitter, fresh
Method of production: mechanical straining
The part of the plant from which the oil is obtained: the bark of the fruit
Main ingredients: limonene, gamma-terpinene, alpha- and beta-pinene

Tangerine essential oil is one of those products that are rarely bought and used because little is known about its many benefits. Find out more about this amazing product, as well as how to properly dose and use it.

Tangerine oil, logically, has a citrusy scent, which is also very sweet. Because of these properties, it blends well with other citrus fruits oils, such as lemon, orange and grapefruit. It is best known for its soothing effect, the ability to reduce anxiety, improve mood and ensure restful sleep.

It relieves nervous tension and awakens life’s joy, giving us a sense of security. Works well for general weakness of the body, exhaustion and fatigue. This essential oil also has a beneficial effect on the skin. It controls sebum secretion and cleans clogged pores. It also has antiseptic and antioxidant effects, protecting the skin from damage and inflammation, stimulates the growth of new skin cells, making it great for treating burns, stretch marks and scars.

Use and dosage of Tangerine Essential Oil

Usage of Tangerine Essential Oil

Home Disinfection

As tangerine essential oil has an antiseptic effect, it is a great choice for disinfecting surfaces and air in your home. A few drops of the oil dissolved in water can be used to wipe floors and tiles, which is a healthier and better choice than using chemical aggressive agents. This is especially important if you have young children who have just crawled.

If you add 20 drops of tangerine essential oil and 10 drops of lemon, grapefruit and cedar oil to the spray bottle, you will get a great blend for refreshing and disinfecting the air on the premises.

Stretch Mark Prevention and Mitigation

It is good to know that tangerine essential oil is a very powerful tool for preventing stretch marks, but also for alleviating those already existing. The recipe for the preparation I used during my pregnancy (very successful) involves mixing two drops of mandarin, lavender and geranium essential oils and dissolving them in a spoonful of cold-pressed coconut oil. This preparation is applied to regions that are susceptible to stretch marks, such as thighs, abdomen, breasts but also “pads” around the hips. It is very important to continue use after childbirth because right then there is an increased risk of stretch marks.

Reduction of cellulite and excess weight

This oil contains the flavonoid Nobiletin, which has the effect of reducing weight and cellulite. Applied to the skin, it affects the elimination of toxins from the body, which are responsible for the formation of “orange peel”. It also speeds up circulation, which automatically leads to better tissue oxygenation and cellulite relief.

You can prepare the cellulite remover by dissolving 5 drops of this oil in 50 ml of cold-pressed jojoba oil. Optionally, you can also add Melissa essential oil, grapefruit or rosemary to your mix, which will enhance its action. It is also important to apply the preparation daily to the areas affected by cellulite and to massage it as much as possible into the tissue. Persistence is the key to this treatment and you need to be persistent and not skip the application.

CAUTION:

For photosensitivity, avoid using tangerine essential oil before tanning. It should not come in contact with the eyes. Do not apply directly to the skin and mucous membranes. Not for oral use. Keep protected from light and heat, out of the reach of children.

High blood pressure, known as hypertension, is a health problem that occurs when there is constant blood pressure in the arteries, caused by narrowing of the arteries or some obstruction in them.

Proper nutrition and a healthier lifestyle can influence the regulation of this high pressure. Changes in diet, smoking cessation and stress reduction are the basis for long-term regulation of pressure, and medication should only be administered if these measures are not sufficient to regulate pressure.

One of the natural remedies can also be essential oils. However, you have to be careful with the ones you will use because some oils like peppermint, rosemary and thyme oil can actually raise your blood pressure and make your health condition even worse. These oils are good to use if you have low blood pressure. On the other side, there are some amazing ones for high blood pressure.

Top 3 essential oils to help you with lowering your blood pressure

Ylang-Ylang oil

A very flowery, kind of a soft smelling oil, but it’s really good for hypertension. It reduces stress, which is accompanied by this kind of a problem. You can use it both topically and in a diffuser. Another great way of using the oil is to pour 3-4 drops in a warm bath and you can relax in it.

Marjoram oil

Also a very effective oil to use for reducing high blood pressure. It can relax your whole body and you can use it the same way as ylang-ylang essential oil.

Petitgrain oil

It has similar effects like the other two, except, you can use this one internally. For example, you can put it in veggie caps, empty caps (2 drops) and use it 2-3 times a day. You can use it as an internal supplement.

No matter which of these oils you decide to use, you will improve your health condition. However, don’t forget to take care of other aspects of your hypertension and to follow your doctor’s directions.

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most common endocrinological diseases of modern society. Diabetes is, to put it bluntly, a condition of elevated blood sugar. Insulin is a hormone that regulates the process of taking glucose from the blood into most cells in the body. If insufficient amounts of insulin are secreted, or for some reason, it does not affect the entry of glucose into the cells, then it is retained in the blood and hyperglycemia or elevated blood sugar occurs.

In addition to genetics and modern lifestyles, exposure to stressful situations, sleeplessness, unbalanced diet are factors that can also stimulate the onset of this disease.

The most common classification of diabetes is type I diabetes, type II diabetes and gestational diabetes.

Type I diabetes is the type of diabetes most commonly associated at younger ages. It is due to a lack of insulin and elevated glucagon. In this type of diabetes, the pancreatic cells practically do not secrete the hormone insulin. The most common symptoms are frequent urination, thirst, weight loss, impaired vision.

Type II diabetes was also called insulin-independent. More than 90% of people with diabetes have type 2 diabetes. Most people are between the ages of 40 and 60, although it has been increasingly seen in younger people lately.

Symptoms of type 2 diabetes are mild, the disease often goes unnoticed, affects both sexes and is detected when complications are already present.

Natural healing

Medicines coming from nature can also help lower blood sugar levels. Natural remedies additionally help in the treatment of diabetes, but that does not mean that you do not need to take care of your diet, increase physical activity and follow the treatment prescribed by your specialist or doctor. Celery, dandelion, fresh carrots can help lower blood sugar. Vegetables that are also helpful are the green leek, garlic and onions. Another way of fighting diabetes is the usage of essential oils.

A headache can get you tough when you least expect it and turn the easiest tasks into a painful endeavor. Severe piercing on one or both sides, sensitivity to light, nausea and weakness are some of the consequences of a strong headache that would make us just lie in bed. Migraines and headaches are beginning to torment more and more people, completely blocking normal everyday life.
Sara Crystal, a neurologist and migraine specialist, claims that most headaches are the result of stress, changes in biorhythm, hormonal imbalance and excess caffeine. In addition, a diet rich in chocolate, cheese, nitrates and additives is also a trigger for pain.
“The causes of migraines are often genetic. Every person has their own trigger. That’s why there is no universal solution for migraines.” she stated.

Common causes of headaches:

stress
fatigue
lack of sleep
alcohol abuse
some drugs
famine
allergy
head injuries
dental diseases
neurological diseases

Essential oils can help you relieve your headache and reduce the need for analgesics.

In addition, you can smell a piece of cotton wool on which you have applied oil or mixture, spray selected oils from the sprayer around the room you are in or apply a few drops of oil to your pillow.

We also recommend a scented bath, but keep in mind that after bathing in warm water, you can be very sleepy, so warm baths should be avoided if you want to stay awake for a long time.

Aromatherapy can help you with less frequent, milder headaches but it will not cure the underlying causes of frequent, chronic or severe headaches. If you suffer from these disorders, consult your doctor.
