    How to Use Essential Oils for Cuts and Scrapes…Safely!

    by Andrea Butje on March 25, 2019

    In Aromahead Institute’s popular class, Aromatherapy for Natural Living, I’ve created an entire lesson about using essential oils safely and effectively for children—including how to use essential oils for cuts and scrapes. 

    I want to share that blend with you. It’s made in a base of aloe vera gel, which is gentle on skin and supports healing.

    The three essential oils for cuts and scrapes in this blend are good at calming pain and inflammation, supporting healing, and cleaning out germs. (In fact, they’re so good at getting rid of germs, I often use these oils in natural cleaning blends. Yet they’re gentle enough for injured skin.)

    I like this blend because it allows you to use essential oils for cuts and scrapes safely—even for kids.

    I understand that being in pain can make us feel distracted from the things that matter to us—and even impatient.

    So let’s get right to the information and recipe!

    I want to tell you about how 3 essential oils are good for pain, why they work, and how to use them.

    Ginger essential oil (Zingiber officinale)

    Most people think of using Ginger essential oil for digestion, but it is an amazing essential oil for pain relief!

    Ginger’s warm, spicy touch helps calm inflammation and bring circulation to areas where it’s applied. I especially love it for places that feel chilly and swollen.

    Learn How To Use Essential Oils for Anxiety—and get NATURAL RELIEF!

    March 20, 2019

    I have been getting a lot of questions about using essential oils for anxiety. I understand that anxiety and overwhelm are difficult emotions. I understand that you can’t just “think yourself into a better place.” (If only it were that easy!) And I get that you’re looking for natural ways to relieve your anxiety. For some people, turning to medications just does not feel like the right answer. For others who have found medications that are helping, finding natural ways to complement that feels very supportive. […]

    Loose Incense Recipe with Frankincense and Myrrh

    March 18, 2019

    If you’ve never burned loose resin incense, it’s very easy. There’s something soothing about it too—just the sight of the incense smoke rising from the natural loose incense, perhaps out of a beautiful incense burner, can help you feel connected to the moment. You can watch me burn loose incense in this video. (It can help to watch someone do it if you’re new to the process.) Making your own loose incense recipe can be such fun, too. Working with resins, herbs, and essential oils can put you in touch with a creative side of yourself connected to nature. Not to mention it fills your home with gorgeous aroma! This is a variation of a popular loose incense recipe I created for YouTube. You can watch me make that here, and follow the same process for this blend. I’ll also share directions for you below.

    How One Aromatherapist Helps Children Process Grief

    March 13, 2019

    Many years ago, Teresa Smith met a “hippie” who sold her a bottle of Lavender essential oil, saying it would help relieve her stress. Teresa had always loved the natural world, and decided to give the Lavender essential oil a try. It worked! That experience started Teresa on a journey, and she earned her Aromatherapy Certification with Aromahead Institute in 2012. She learned that essential oils can support us in so many therapeutic ways—from calming inflammation, preventing infection, relieving headaches, and offering more mental focus. […]

    Headaches? Not with these 4 essential oils for headaches!

    March 11, 2019

    Some of your essential oil friends heard that you sometimes get headaches. Specifically, Frankincense, Lemon, Black Spruce, and Hemlock—and they all have ideas for how to calm your headaches down. (These are 4 amazing essential oils for headaches!) Frankincense wants to burn some incense for you and create a peaceful, meditative space. Lemon wants to brighten your spirits and calm your inflammation. Black Spruce and Hemlock want to take you on a nice relaxing walk through the woods. (Spending time in nature can often help us feel so much better!) They all “put their heads together” and decided to merge their ideas into one by making you a headache inhaler. It’s the perfect solution, because even though all four oils are unique, they share some common talents, like calming inflammation, releasing muscle tension, and helping you breathe deeply. […]
