芳香疗法和秋季精油

精致的芳香疗法和秋季精油很多人问我,特定季节最好的精油什么,比如冬天。所以,我决定创建四个博客 - 每个季节一个:  冬季,  春季,  夏季  和秋季

我认为精油和芳香疗法应用的最佳选择在很大程度上取决于某个人如何经历一个季节(例如过敏,皮肤干燥),但我们人类对气候变化有一些普遍反应(例如,增加新陈代谢)寒冷的月份产生更多的体热,在多风的季节不那么紧张。

尽管如此,很难概括出什么是特定人的最佳精油或应用。每个人和情况都不同。例如,我们都经历过许多不同类型的感冒:一些更多地位于头部,另一些更多地位于喉咙中,还有一些位于胸部,等等。

这里包含的信息只是所有可能的样本。对于特定问题,最好的行动是咨询专业的芳香疗法师。提醒一句:精油销售人员不一定是经过培训的专业芳香疗法师。)

秋季

秋季绝对是过渡和调整的季节。在我们的地区(华盛顿特区),秋季带来了炎热,潮湿和浓郁的夏季。气候变得更干燥,更凉爽,更轻盈,更新鲜。在户外活动更加愉快,所以人们外出,身体更活跃。但是,在DC区域的下降也是夏季绿化消退,树叶干枯并从树上掉下来并且大多数草本植物死亡的时候。白天时间也减少了。一般来说,秋天是大自然向内吸引而人们感觉不那么停滞的时候。

在秋天,人们回归他们的日常工作:学校,工作和其他职责。夏天是异想天开和俏皮的,而秋天是结构化和富有成效的。对于一些人来说,秋天是获得动力,专注,集中精力和开始新项目的时候。对于其他人来说,堕落是令人不安的,可能使他们忧郁,阴郁,焦虑甚至沮丧。

秋天也带来了一些身体问题。许多人患有过敏症和相关症状,如鼻塞,头痛,打喷嚏和眼睛和喉咙发痒。感冒和流感变得更加普遍。湿疹,牛皮癣和其他干燥的皮肤状况可以伴随着更干燥的空气,更低的温度和更少的阳光照射。

秋季的一些好精油

注意:  了解特定精油的特定植物种类(例如薰衣草而不仅仅是任何薰衣草植物)非常重要,以确保您使用的精油具有您寻求的治疗功效。这就是为什么植物学名称  已包含在上面的括号中的一个原因 某些精油适用于患有某些疾病的人。咨询专业的芳香疗法师,为您和您的具体情况或意图确定适当的精油混合物。

秋季芳香疗法应用

精油是主要的芳香疗法成分,但载体和应用类型也是重要的考虑因素。事实上,在皮肤非常敏感或发炎的情况下,芳香疗法师可能只推荐一种简单的舒缓载体混合物。一些应用更适合某些条件:皮肤趋向于快速吸收乳液以快速传递其滋养属性(例如,保湿),而香脂和软膏持久存在于皮肤表面并且为皮肤表面提供更多延长的愈合(例如, ,伤口和痤疮治疗)。

在选择秋季精油时,选择一至四种精油,创造出一体化,互补和相互促进的混合物。根据您的条件或意图,抵制使用具有吸引力属性的每种精油的诱惑。

个人吸入器  可为个人提供方便,便携的个人护理。吸入器可以填充精油混合物,以清除鼻窦,增加焦点和注意力,研磨或提升精神。混合物可根据个人独特的秋季体验和内涵量身定制。

漫射器  散发整个空间,影响每个人在场或在空间中移动。它们可以用作个人吸入器的替代或补充。根据所使用的精油的混合,扩散器可以解决鼻窦充血和情绪低落,灌输精神清晰度和注意力或提供免疫增强。在共用空间的地方,扩散器油混合物倾向于设计用于更通用的用途。

乳液,乳霜和黄油 - 适用于干性皮肤,湿疹和牛皮癣以及秋季流行的其他皮肤病。载体的愈合特性对这些产品有重要贡献。许多富含有益脂肪酸的油和黄油滋润皮肤:鳄梨(Persea americana),荷荷巴油(Simmondisia californica)和乳木果油(Butyrospermum parkii)是三个公认的例子。Tamanu(Calcophyllum inophyllum),月见草(Oenothera biennis)和金盏花(Calendula officinalis)冷榨或注入油可以解决湿疹和牛皮癣。胡萝卜籽油(Daucus c arota 平息通常与这些条件相关的瘙痒。

沐浴油 - 是一种很好的方式来获得一点“我的时间”,并改变情绪。加入1/4至1/2茶匙的载体油,软化和舒缓皮肤。你可以使用更多的油,但你使用的越多,浴液和你的皮肤就会感觉更油腻。您还可以添加支持您个人意图的精油。仅使用被认为对皮肤无刺激性的精油,并注意温水会增加刺激的可能性。此外,确保在乳化载体(例如植物油,植物甘油,甚至整个 - 不含脂肪或脱脂牛奶)中稀释精油,然后将它们加入浴液中以确保它们分散,因此更少集中。您不希望在表面漂浮的小精油泡沫与您的温暖皮肤直接接触。

适当的精油稀释液

注意:  精油极度浓缩,如果使用不当会引起刺激。

一般来说,使用这些稀释精油用于特定应用

最后注意:   从芳香疗法的奇妙疗效中获益的最佳方法是咨询专业的芳香疗法师,他们将进行咨询,包括全面的整体健康评估,以确定适合您和您的特定条件的精油混合物。或意图。

Aromatherapy and Essential Oils for the Seasons – Fall

AROMATHERAPY AND ESSENTIAL OILS FOR THE FALL

Subtle Aromatherapy and Essential Oils for the FallMany people ask me what are the best essentials oils for a particular season like winter. So, I decided to create four blogs – one for each season: winterspringsummer and fall.

I think the best choice of essential oils and aromatherapyapplications largely depends on how a particular person experiences a season (e.g., allergies, dry skin), but there are some general responses we humans have to the changes in climate (e.g., increased metabolism in the colder months to generate more body heat, a sense of being less grounded during windy seasons).

Still, it’s difficult to generalize about what are the best essential oils or applications for a specific person. Each person and situation is different. For example, we’ve all experienced many different types of colds: some localized more in the head, others more in the throat and still others in the chest, etc.

The information included here is just a sample of all that’s possible. For specific concerns, the best action is to consult a professional aromatherapist. (A word of caution: essential oils sales people are not necessarily trained professional aromatherapists.)

FALL

Fall is definitely a season of transition and adjustment. In our area (Washington, DC ), fall brings great relief from the hot, humid and soupy summer. The climate becomes drier, cooler, breezier and fresher. Being outdoors is more pleasant so people are out and about and more physically active. But, fall in the DC area is also a time when the summer greenery fades, leaves dry up and fall from the trees and most herbaceous plants die back. Daylight hours diminish as well. In general, fall is a time when nature draws inward and people feel less grounded.

In the fall, people return to their routines: school, work and other duties. Whereas summer is whimsical and playful, fall is structured and productive. For some, fall is a time to get motivated, focus, concentrate and start new projects. For others, fall is unsettling and can make them melancholy, gloomy, anxious or even depressed.

Fall brings with it some physical issues as well. Many people suffer from allergies and the associated symptoms such as nasal congestion, headaches, sneezing and itchy eyes and throat. Colds and flus become more prevalent. Eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions can flair up with drier air, lower temperatures and less exposure to sunlight.

SOME GOOD ESSENTIAL OILS FOR THE FALL

NOTE: It’s important to know the specific plant species from which a particular essential oil was derived (e.g. Lavandula angustifolia and not just any lavender plant) in order to ensure that the essential oil you use has the healing properties you seek. That’s one reason why the botanical names have been included in parentheses above. Some essential oils are counter-indicated for people with certain medical conditions. Consult a professional aromatherapist to determine the appropriate blend of essential oils for you and your specific condition or intention.

AROMATHERAPY APPLICATIONS FOR THE FALL

Essential oils are the primary aromatherapy ingredient, but carriers and the type of application are critical considerations as well. In fact, in situations such as when the skin is very sensitive or inflamed, an aromatherapist may recommend only a simple blend of soothing carriers. Some applications are better suited for certain conditions: the skin tends to absorb lotions rapidly for quick delivery of their nourishing attributes (e.g., moisturizing) while balms and ointments persist on the surface of the skin and offer more extended healing to the skin’s surface (e.g., wound and acne treatment).

In choosing essential oils for the fall, select one to four essential oils the create an integrated, complementary and mutually reinforcing blend. Resist the temptation to use every essential oil that has an appealing attribute given your condition or intention.

Personal inhalers can offer a convenient, portable personal treatment for an individual. An inhaler can be filled with an essential oil blend  to clear the sinuses, increase focus and concentration, ground or uplift the spirits. Blends can be tailored to an individual’s unique autumn experience and intensions.

Diffusers scent an entire space effecting everyone present or moving through the space. They can be used as an alternative or a complement to personal inhalers. Depending on the blend of essential oils used, diffusers can address sinuses congestion and moodiness, instill mental clarity and focus or provide an immune boost. Where spaces are shared, diffuser oil blends tend to designed for more general purpose use.

Lotions, creams and butters – are excellent applications for dry skin, eczema and psoriasis and other skin conditions prevalent in the fall. The healing properties of carriers make important contributions to these products. Many oils and butters, rich in beneficial fatty acids, moisturize the skin: avocado (Persea americana),  jojoba (Simmondisia californica) and shea butter (Butyrospermum parkii) are three commonly recognized examples. Tamanu (Calcophyllum inophyllum), evening primrose (Oenothera biennis) and calendula (Calendula officinalis) cold pressed or infused oils address both eczema and psoriasis. Carrot seed oil (Daucus carota ) calms the itchiness that often associated with these conditions.

Bath oils – are a wonderful way to get a little “me time,” and to modify moods. Add 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of carrier oil to soften and sooth the skin. You can use more oil, but the more you use, the oilier the bath and your skin will feel. You can also add essential oils that support your personal intentions. Use only essential oils that are considered nonirritating to skin, and be aware that warm water can increase the potential for irritation. Also, make sure to dilute the essential oils in an emulsifying carrier (e.g., vegetable oil, vegetable glycerin and even whole – not fat free or skim – milk) before adding them to the bath to assure that they disperse and are, therefore, less concentrated. You don’t want little essential oil bubbles floating on the surface and making direct contact with your warm skin.

APPROPRIATE ESSENTIAL OIL DILUTIONS

NOTE: Essential oils are extremely concentrated and can cause irritations when used improperly.

As general rule, use these dilutions of essential oils for specific applications:

FINAL NOTE:  The best way to benefit from the wonderfully healing properties of aromatherapy is to consult a professional aromatherapist who will conduct a consultation, including a thorough holistic health assessment, in order to determine the appropriate blend of essential oils for you and your specific condition or intention.
