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.

Good carrier oils for scalp are coconut, sesame, olive and almond oil. You can mix 100% pure essential oils to a carrier oil. Lavender oil relaxes and reduces stress. doTerra also has an oil blend called Balance that will help you to relax the whole body. There are many leaf oils in it, camomile and frankincense.

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.

Getting rid of ticks with essential oils

howtouseessentialoils

Ticks, they ruin the summer day very easily! How to get rid of ticks, before you need to be pulling them out and worrying about lyme disease? My inspiration for this post came from my own midsummer festivities. We were in a beautiful place, that had high grass and low trees with leafs. Luckily nobody got a tick from our group, except our friends’ dog! Our neighbor’s little boy, who is the same age as my son, got a tick from his trip! There are a lot of ticks on the coast.

How do you repel the ticks with as little toxins as possible? I get chills of the idea of showering all those chemicals on to my little boy. And I don’t want those either. You will get a good tick repellent (works also well to other bugs) by mixing some carrier oil (for example olive, coconut and jojoba oil) to lemon, eucalyptus or peppermint oil. Just mix two drops to the carrier oil and rub it into your skin. If you want to make a mixture add 20 drops to a small bottle of oil. Remember to apply it to your skin often enough! I know people who take a little bit of essential oil to their hands and quickly wipe their legs and arms. For kids, seniors and people with sensitive skin, it is recommended to dilute the essential oils. Remember to cover your skin with clothing, especially when working in the bushes or kids playing there.

Cleaning with essential oils

brush-15931_960_720

Are you ready for essential oils?

Yes! Everybody’s favourite topic: Cleaning! So exciting and wonderful! Especially in a family with small kids and pets, where you get to do it almost non stop. What new can essential oils bring to cleaning? Quite a lot!

A lot of people suffer from cleaning head ache and no! It’s not emotional! When you inhale chemicals couple of hours, it’s no wonder if you start to feel it. Because Do Terra’s essential oils are completely natural without anything extra added to them, you and your family  will not inhale any extra toxic chemicals.

As a mother to a toddler it feels good, that my child can’t find anything toxic from the cupboards, even if they get it in their mouth or eyes. Essential oils are strong, but the amount in your self-made cleaning product is small. Kids are also very sensitive to chemicals when they are developing. The research show that different chemicals disturb their neurological development and immune system. Kids also inhale more frequently than adults so the amount of chemicals they get compared to their body weight is much bigger. According to United States Environmental Agency the air at home is 200-500% more polluted than outside, because the house cleaners.

Because you need very little essential oils for your self-made cleaning products (few drops), the cost of the cleaner stays low. Essential oils are powerful and remove dirt well and before all remove unwanted smells. Products are also environmentally friendly. I use the same jars and bottles for my self-made cleaners time and time again (bottle for my laundry detergent, liquid dish soap and my water sprayer).

So what kind of cleaning products do you need for your home? Hmm. Same kind as your great grand mother. Which means: Baking soda, vinegar, Castile Soap (Dr Bronner’s baby, liquid form of Marseille soap or Do terra’s Onguard) and sea salt. In some of the recipes you see people using washing soda (dish tablets and dish powder) or olive and coconut oil.

Best essential oils are for cleaning:

-Lemon, Lime and Wild Orange

–  Eucalyptus and Tea Tree

-Thyme and Peppermint

-Do Terra also has oil blends like: Onguard and Purify blends

My favourite recipe for all-purpose cleaner ( I put it in an old spray bottle):

  • 1/4 Castile Soap/ Liquid Marseille Soap/ Do Terra’s Onguard
  • 1/4 Apple cider vinegar
  • rest water
  • 5 drops of Lemon oil and 5 drops of peppermint (if you used other vinegar than apple cider you can add third oil)
