Holiday Cheer using Essential Oils

By Expert November 25, 2010 - 7:37pm

This is absolutely my favorite time of the year. The cooking, decorating, music and yes we can not forget. Those wonderful smells. Smells that take us back to our childhood. Mom or Granna cooking pies, cakes, gingerbread cookies. Yummy!

So for the days that I am not being Martha Stewart in the kitchen, I use my diffuser and put therapeutic grade essential oils in them.

My favorite is cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange essential oils. Besides smelling like apple pie and cookies all rolled into one, the benefits are wonderful for the entire family.

Orange oil may bring peace and happiness to the mind and body and helps spread a little sunshine on thoughts that are gloomy. Orange creates a hostile environment for bacteria and viruses.

Cinnamon Bark oil may promote the feelings of joy. A possible catalyst to the other oils to enhance their benefits. It is said that it may have a stimulating and toning effect on the body especially the circulatory system.

Spruce oil may give a sense of grounding, creating balance, having us more open to receiving and giving. Creating a feeling of uplifting for the spirit and soothing the soul. It may help relieve anxiety. Spruce also creates a hostile environment for bacteria and viruses.

How to use besides diffusing. You may put a few drops on pine cones, cedar chips or on logs to burn in the fireplace. You might try it in your potpourri.

Last year I was very creative and put one drop of cinnamon and nutmeg essential oil in my organic homemade apple butter. I think I may be on to something.

Essential oils, knowns as nature's living energy, are the natural, aromatic violatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. The distrinctive components in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt to its surroundings. Essential oils are extrated from aromatic plant sources via steam distillation, and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dry herbs. While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and benefits vast - which makes them much more than something that simply smells good. Historically, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. With more than 200 references to aromatics, incense and ointments throughout the Bible, essential oils are said to be used for anointing and healing the sick. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherpay, massage therapy, emtotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions and much more.
