You Can Dance. Week 7 Of Wellness

Dancer Pose

You can dance and you should.  Dancing like yoga is a fun form of exercise and it creates those happy hormones!  Dance, smile and laugh, if, you can.  It’s good for your health!

POSTURE – Dancer Pose

WISDOM – Having an attitude of gratitude is a serious game changer for your body, mind and spirit.  Prosperity is drawn to gratitude.

MANTRA – Repeat silently or quietly to yourself,  “Compare no more.”

PRANAYAMA – This technique was developed by Dr. Weil – Begin by pressing your tongue on the gums just behind your front teeth. so that when you exhale a wooshing sound occurs.  Inhale through your nose for 4 seconds, hold for 7 seconds, and exhale for 8 seconds making the wooshing sound. Repeat 3 times.

NUTRITIONAL ADVISE – Yes, salads when you eat them instead of other less nutritious foods will help you lose weight.  Water content and nutrient dense veggies make this a winner for the weight conscious.  Another good thing about salads is that there is an endless variety of ingredient combinations so you won’t get bored.

ESSENTIAL OIL BLEND  – We love a mask of Coconut oil and or Apricot Kernel Oil with 2 drops Frankincense, 5 drops Lavender, 2 drops Patchouli oil and 1 drop of Geranium oil.  Renewal for skin plus your vital energy will increase exponentially.

Roll shoulder blades back and down. From the center of your being and up through the top of your head radiate up as if a string were pulling you toward the Universe while staying grounded through your feet.

Our Aromatherapy Page

My exploration of essential oils began like many others as a suggestion from a friend for some ailment or other.  Did you know aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years?  Essential Oils were even found in ancient Egyptian tombs. Mentioned in the Bible and known to be used in ancient Chinese Medicine, essential oils are really a lost art.  Well, for me they are just another example of the miracles found in nature.  I have personally suffered many maladies such as Chronic Bursitis, allergies, muscle pain, asthma, menstrual torture every month and others.  Ya, I felt like a hypochondriac, so, I often suffered in search of something besides (Aleve) to get me through my days and nights.  Well, essential oils were really important in my journey toward wellness.  Thanks to my friend Diane and Young Living Oils’, Gary Young for showing me the way! Go to our Aromatherapy Page to learn amazing stuff about the healing powers of essential oils.  Better yet, try our Magic Oil today!

Love of Lavender

Lavender Fields

Aches and pains and generally not feeling well lead me to discover the essential oil of Lavender.  It’s many healing attributes made it a perfect match for me and a terrific introduction to the world of aromatherapy.  Exploration of the powers of lavender oil are a great way to understand the value of essential oils and the benefits of incorporating their use in our daily lives.  No doubt our favorite essential oil. It comes up as a remedy for so many ailments that we just tell everyone to keep some on hand. It is the best thing to put on a burn. Soothes almost immediately. Lavender oil benefits the body and soul by cleansing and balancing, strengthening, stimulating, calming and refreshing. It relieves nervousness, neurasthenia, stress, insomnia, irritability, anger, mood swings, and depression, according to it’s advocates. It is an excellent treatment for the skin and hair. It creates balance, deodorizes, improves circulation, detoxifies, tones and revives. It relieves dry skin, acne, and fluid retention.dreamstime_152828322 It promotes healthy hair growth and eliminates dandruff. *3 So much can be said of it’s wonders.

    Lavender oil really works quickly to heal burns and stop pain. It is a natural antibiotic, antiseptic, antidepressant, sedative and de-oxidizer, which explains its healing properties and popularity. Lavender stimulates the immune system and promotes healthy cell growth on wounds. It is also a great mood tonic. *2

    Physical benefits include antiseptic, pain relief, diuretic, healing, insect repellent, stimulate gastric juices, support spleen, heart strengthening and lowering blood pressure. It gives relief to the following conditions: burns, wounds, insect bites, eczema, dermatitis, boils, abscesses, rheumatism, neuritis, lumbago, ear infections, headaches, yeast infections, athlete’s foot, influenza, colds, gallbladder disorders, bronchitis, asthma, motion sickness, high blood pressure, and nervous heart. Lavender is helpful for menstruation symptoms and adds to the birth experience.

   It grows best in arid climates with sandy soil. The hotter the weather the better. It has a spicy fragrance. Originally it was found in Persia, Canary Island and the South of France. Today it is cultivated in France, Yugoslavia, Italy, Spain, Morocco, England and the United States.

    History and folklore surrounding the use of lavender is ancient and fascinating. Because of its’ many fine qualities lavender has been used by many civilizations through the ages. There are numerous reference in the Bible to the “high price of lavender.” It is often referenced by its ancient name Spikenard. Traditionally, a cross made of lavender was hung over the door for protection against evil and disease. During the “Great Plague” of London, in the 17th Century it was suggested that tying a bunch of lavender to each wrist would protect against infection. It is known that grave robbers who washed in “Four Thieves Vinegar” containing lavender, rarely contracted the disease. In France, around the same time, glove-makers who were licensed to perfume their wares escaped the cholera epidemic. Through the ages Lavender is associated with love and romance. Cleopatra included it in the perfumes she created to seduce both Caesar and Mark Anthony. Three thousand years ago Lavender was used by the ancient Egyptians, and later by the Greek and Romans. Lavender was diffused in the air, in candles, compresses, massage and added to the bath. Queen Elizabeth used it to treat headaches and eventually incorporated in cleaning solutions and polishes. Her love of Lavender made it “fashionable” it the country women of the time. *4

 Taking Lavender Orally- “Only take essential oils orally under the supervision of an experienced therapist. Improper use can lead to soft tissue irritation and adverse effects on various organs of the body. Usually external use is sufficient.

Lavender Oil is one of gooroosmarketplace.com's favorite essential oils.

Essential Oil Of Lavender

     Originally from the Mediterranean, the Romans once used Lavender oil in their bath water. Traditionally, it was inhaled to ease exhaustion, insomnia, irritability and depression. Victorians used Lavender to treat fainting spells caused by constricting corsets.

     The main constituents include: Linalol. Linalyl acetate, geranyal, eucalyptol, pinene, limonene, cineole, coummarins and flavonoids. This combination gives lavender antiseptic properties, stimulates circulatory system, and relieves muscle spasms and cramping. It also seems to diminish scars and heals bruises at an accelerated rate. *1

     Try Lavender on burns or rashes for dramatic results. Lavender relieves effects of stress, soothes nerves and helps quiet colic in babies. According to Valerie Ann Worwood, author of The Complete Book Of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy, “This oil is a delight to use. Every home should have a bottle of Lavender Oil.”

It is appropriate for all skin and hair types. It fights infection, inflammation, insomnia, pain, depression and anxiety. It is very safe to use.
