Indian head massage with essential oils

Indian head massage includes a serie of massage movements that touches the scalp very softly and very firmly. Indian head massage also includes massage for shoulders, neck and upper arms. A person getting the massage sits in a chair with normal clothes on.

Few years ago Indian head massage was very popular in Finland. Now I feel that it’s not that popular anymore, but it is very relaxing and easy to do at home. Hair dressers use to offer it every where and it was taught in hair dresser schools. Of course spas, masseurs and beauticians still offer it. Indian head massage is extremely old thing, over 1000 years old, so I assume that it will come back as a trend again. If you need help with doing it at home, there are classes for it.

Improve your health with produce

You can improve your health with different foods from your fridge or cupboards. Here are some tips:

  • Cold pressed olive oil and coconut oil can be used for diluting essential oils, reducing ear wax, skin infection and chopped lips. I have replaced almost all lotions and lip balms with coconut oil
  • Fresh ginger is good for flues, coughs, fevers, digestion, nausea, menstrual pain and increasing blood flow. Ginger is great with cold and hot water when you are starting to get ill. If you don’t like the taste of ginger, you can make it sweater with honey or something else.
  • Dry plums, fruit and figs help with constipation

  • Apple cider vinegar helps with inflammation in joints, flues, fungal infections in skin and problems with hair and scalp.
  • Lingonberry and cranberries (fresh juice too)  help with urinary track health and preventing infections in it. I know people who have tested this and have been happy with the results.
  • Lemon (or lemon oil) can be used for treating calluses, fever, digestion problems, infections, sore throat and oral candidiasis.

Edistä terveyttä ruoka-aineilla

Monia tuotteita kotikaapeista voi käyttää terveyden hoitoon. Tässä muutamia vinkkejä:

  • Kylmäpuristettua oliiviöljyä ja kookosöljyä voi käyttää eteeristen öljyjen laimentaminen, korvavahan poistaminen, ihotulehdukseen ja halkeileviin huuliin. Itse olen korvannut kookosöljyllä melkein kaikki voiteet ja huulirasvat.
  • Tuore inkivääri soveltuu nuhakuumeeseen, yskään, kuumeeseen, ruuansulatushäiriöihin, pahoinvointiin, kuukautiskipuihin ja verenkiertohäiriöihin. Inkivääri on mielestäni hyvä kylmän tai kuuman veden kanssa, kun flunssa on ihan aluillaan. Jos et pidä inkiväärin mausta, kannattaa makeuttaa jollain.
  • Kuivatut luumut, hedelmät ja viikunat auttavat ummetukseen.

  • Omenaviinietikka auttaa tulehduksellisiin nivelsairauksiin, nuhakuumeeseen, ihon sieni-infektioihin, hiusten- ja päänahan vaivoihin.
  • Puolukka ja karpalo (tuoremehunakin) sopii hyvin virtsateiden hoitoon ja tulehdusten ehkäisemiseen. Tuttavani ovat testanneet ja hyväksi havainneet.
  • Sitruunaa (tai sitruunaöljyö) voi käyttää känsiin, kuumeeseen, ruuansulatushäiriöihin, tulehduksiin, kurkkukipuun ja sammakseen.

Essential oils for athletes

howtouseessentialoils1108

The World Championships for athletes made me think about athletes and essential oils. How could an athlete or somebody who enjoys exercising use their oils? Here are some tips:

  • Relax achy or tired muscles and joints

Peppermint can be used to relax achy muscles and joints. Take couple of drops of peppemint (or doTerra’s Deep Blue oil blend) and mix it to coconut oil or some other carrier oil and massage it to the place you need. You can drink doTerra’s Peppermint oil by adding a drop to water or some other drink. Lavender can be used to relax and recover tired muscles.

  • Boost immune support

Clover and Frankincense has been proven to add white cell account in the laboratories, which helps your body to fight germs. You can add two drops, diluted with carrier oil to your wrists or bottom of your feet, for example. Frankincense also renews cells, so I put a couple of drops to it to my face every evening, double effect!

  • Clean sports gear in a non toxic way

Especially if you have a man in your life who loves to exercise, you may have noticed that sports gear brings extra odor in to your life. Lemon oil disinfects shoes, ends of the clubs and helmets, where there is bacteria. You can either wipe with a cloth with a couple of drops of lemon oil in it or make your own spray with lemon oil, water and maybe some castile soap (or doTerra’s cleaning concentrate). Lemon makes stains fade in the sun, but it can also dilute colors, so be careful with that. If you want to make your whites whiter, that’s a good tip for that purpose. The smell of lemon, makes the sport gear smell nicer.

  • Avoid athlete’s foot and nail fungus or treat them

If you have ever suffered from athlete’s foot or nail fungus, you know those are nasty. Wiping your toe nails and feet with couple of drops of tea tree oil (Melaleuca) you can improve your chances with fight against bacteria. Swimming or showering in public places increases your chances in getting skin infections. Tea tree oil has been used since 1920’s in Australia to treat skin infections. I swim a lot in swimming halls. If I have any cuts in my feets or near my toe nails, I clean them with tea tree oil after to make sure I don’t get any infections.
