Back to School: Essential oils and blends that can help you make the grade

back-to-school

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Nelson Mandela

With school having started, there are many essential oils that can help you stay focused and concentrate. Unlike over-the-counter supplements or energy drinks, essential oil remedies have fewer side effects and will not cause harsh crashes or jitters.

* Rosemary :  This herb has been used for thousands of years to aid in concentration in parts of Europe, particularly the Mediterranean. In ancient Greece, scholars would hold sprigs of Rosemary in their hair to smell as they worked. Later in England it became a symbol for memory and fidelity and is still used in wedding ceremonies.

rosemaryRosemary stimulates blood circulation to the brain and contains substances that increase the immune system’s function. It also contains many minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and calcium that can help in overall health. Camphor is a compound in Rosemary, which has been used in Vick’s Vapor rub as well as some calming salves

* Lavender:  Headaches and stress can seriously affect participation and focus in the classroom. Lavender has been known to calm senses and help ease headache pain. Part of the mint family with rosemary and thyme, lavender has over a 150 active constituents in its chemical make up. Not only does this make lavender an antiseptic, but also contains compounds known to combat stress. Before a big test, be sure to use a lavender diffuser or lavender tea.

* Grapefruit:  Grapefruit is chock full of vitamin C which helps keep your immune system going through the long study sessions and cold winter days. Pink and red grapefruit contains lycopene as well, which can help fight against oxygen free radicals that damage cells. The fruit also contains antioxidants, which will help keep you healthy even after finals week or during a huge paper.

Cold and flu season can be another obstacle that you need to over come during the winter months. Licorice root can be a great way to stay focused and feel better.

Licorice root can be used to stir your favorite herbal tea, mixed in tea, or simply chewed on. When you have a cold, flu or sore throat, licorice root can be used to instantly sooth coughs or sore throats.

As a side note: Please do not use essential oils undiluted on the skin, blend with a carrier oil.

Why Essential Oils Heal and Drugs Don’t ~

The Chemistry of Essential Oils / Made Simple
by David Stewart Ph.D., D.N.M.

If you tell most medical doctors that essential oils bring about healing with no negative side effects, they won’t believe you. This is because in medical school, students are repeatedly told by their professors that all effective medicines have negative side effects, and if they don’t then they can’t be effective.

Rosemary aromatherapy can help boost prospective memory–- a new study finds that smelling a compound in the herb’s essential oil called 1,8-cineole, or eucalyptol, can help people remember tasks.

The smell of rosemary essential oil may help enhance prospective memory- the ability to remember upcoming events in order to complete future tasks, like sticking to a medication schedule or sending an email.

Peony flowers 2012

Its been a while since I wrote a blog post here. It seems between Facebook and Pinterest, and life happening .. I have been remiss in my entries.

The summer so far has been sweltering. Fires raging thru out the South West, my prayers for all those in those parts.

Politically, they are ramping up for the elections this year. I think I will keep my opinions to myself .. Politics and Religion… I don’t go there.

I love Reflexology! I studied it back in the late 1999. As a young girl when my Grandpa would come home from work his feet hurt him so much I would take off his boots and sock and massage them for him. I saw the relief he received and how relaxed it made him. this is an informative artilce by Sun Gazing on FaceBook. Enjoy.

Reflexology Poster by Sun Gazing

What is Foot Reflexology?

Foot Reflexology has become a well respected ADJUNCT to regular medical care. It is used in Hospitals, by Physical Therapists and Chiropractors to enhance MOST forms of medical treatments.

It is not a “miracle” or a “faith healing” type thing. Sometimes, like other therapies, it takes a few sessions.

Foot reflexology can help ease the pain of achy joints and muscles, relieve headaches and toothaches, improve the functioning of major systems of the body.

Foot Reflexology works by applying pressure at specific points on the bottom of the foot. This is not the same as acupressure or acupuncture.

In fact, the only thing that is the same is that medical science can’t prove how it works…they just know it does!!

There are over 7,200 nerve endings at the bottom of each foot. Nerves connect to every organ, every limb and region of the body through the brain and spinal column. It is thought that foot reflexology works in much the same way. Even though we don’t actually work the nerve endings, the correlation of the bottom of the feet to every region of the body definitely exists. It was originally called “The Zone” therapy in the early 20th century and was successfully organized into a comprehensive therapy by a physical therapist, Eunice Ingham in the ’40s. She coined the term “reflexes” when referring to this therapy.

Foot reflexology can increase the blood flow to the part of the body being worked, which in turn increases the oxygen going to that part.

The increased blood flow helps take away toxins that build up in each cell of the body each day.

This brings more health and vitality to the region plus adds a sense of over-all well-being. When our feet feel good, we feel good!

Learn to do foot reflexology to help your family and friends feel better! Get help getting your body back to its’ natural state of health by teaching your family to do foot reflexology on you!

Please realize that foot reflexology is NOT a substitute for medical treatment, you are always encouraged to seek professional medical help when needed, however, this therapy can be used in conjunction with most treatments for most conditions.

Please, if being treated by a medical professional, get that professional’s permission before doing foot reflexology for that medical condition.  ~ by sun Gazing on FaceBook
