Soothe Back Pain Naturally With Various Essential Oils

       April 18, 2017   

Acute or chronic back problems can make everyday life a misery. Acute pain may be caused by a pulled muscle or problems with tendons, ligaments or bone. Incorrect posture, lack of exercise and/or obesity are factors that can take their toll on the back muscles. Aromatherapy using essential oils can relieve back pain naturally.
Many people seek relief for back pain by taking over-the-counter pain medications or prescription drugs which often have negative side effects, decreasing overall well-being. Obviously, not all cases of back pain can be relieved by aromatherapy and it is always wise to seek the advice of a medical professional to discuss treatment options, especially in the event of chronic back pain.
         Aromatherapy uses essential oils that are extracted from different plants. These essential oils have medicinal properties, which work on the physical and mental levels to address the ailment at hand and to promote healing.
The best form of aromatherapy for back pain is a massage using essential oils. Simply mix a couple of drops of your chosen oil with a carrier oil and arrange to have a professional massage therapist massage your back for you. This serves to increase circulation and to relieve the aching and tightness. Massage therapy also helps to relieve stress and promotes the circulation of blood to the area, while the aroma of the essential oils works through the olfactory system.

Australian Blue™

April 2, 2017

Australian Blue™ was originally formulated with only 5 oils in it. It was re-formulated a few years ago and is now a formula containing 16 essential oils. The most important ingredient is Blue Cypress. The Aboriginal Tiwi people in Northern Australia used this thick oil to help with multiple physical problems. It was a sort of “go-to” oil for these people. Next we have the strong floral note of Ylang Ylang that promotes relaxation and balances male and female energies and restores confidence and equilibrium. Next we have Cedarwood, an oil high in sesquiterpenes which stimulate the limbic part of the brain, the center of emotions and memory. White fir supports the body and creates a feeling of grounding, anchoring, and empowering. Geranium is an oil to release negative memories and ease nervous tension. It is balancing for the emotions, lifts the spirit, and fosters peace and well-being.

Everything You Need to Know About Iodine

March 18, 2017

By Young Living

Iodine is a necessary mineral that your body can’t produce itself. It must be consumed from an outside source through food or an iodine supplement. The USDA recommends that most adults consume 150 micrograms of iodine per day, and pregnant and nursing women should consume about twice that much.

An iodine deficiency is not something to take lightly. If you’re not getting enough, it can pose a risk to your health. Pregnant women need to be especially proactive about meeting their daily requirement. Just a few decades ago, so many Americans were iodine deficient that as part of a public health initiative, many U.S. salt companies began adding iodine to their salt. When you go to the supermarket today, most salt packaging says: This salt contains iodine, a necessary nutrient. With the new trend of low-sodium diets, however, many people are saying no to salt and are looking for other options to meet their daily iodine quota.
