Feel better during cold and flu season with aromatherapy

The unadulterated, concentrated essences of plants found in Aura Cacia's high-quality essential oils can provide a safety net during cold and flu outbreaks. Pure essential oils have numerous cleansing and purifying constituents that serve to protect the plant from predators and disease in nature. Many of these same protecting constituents have been isolated and used in over-the-counter drugs for years, including camphor from camphor wood, cineol from eucalyptus, menthol from peppermint and thymol from thyme.

Key Essential Oils: White Camphor, Eucalyptus, Ginger, Lavandin, Spike Lavender, Lemon, Wild Marjoram, Oregano, Peppermint, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Thyme.

In addition to individual essential oils, Aura Cacia offers a host of blends and other ready-to-use products with purifying and protecting aromatherapy benefits:

First Response & Medieval Mix Essential Solutions, Purify Essential Oil Blend, Mineral Bath, Aromatherapy Sticks and Shower Tablets.

Cleanse the Air. Simply diffusing individual oils or combinations of oils into the air can purify and clear stagnant indoor air. Some oils, like eucalyptus, actually oxygenate the air as they evaporate. Use any one of the various diffuser accessories that Aura Cacia offers to effectively cleanse the air, such as candle lamps, room diffusers and personal diffusers. You can also simply add several drops of essential oil to a pan of steaming water on the stove. This will add moisture to dry indoor air as well as the essential oils.

Chest Salve. Many commercial chest salves are very harsh and stimulating because certain constituents like menthol are isolated from the modifying and synergizing complement of the complete essential oil. The essential oils in this blend can be just as effective as over the counter commercial versions, but are much more mild:

1 teaspoon beeswax
3 teaspoons Aura Cacia organic Jojoba oil
4 drops Aura Cacia Lavender essential oil
3 drops Aura Cacia Eucalyptus essential oil
1 drop Aura Cacia Peppermint essential oil

Place ingredients in a small glass Pyrex measuring cup. Stand in a water bath inside a saucepan. Gradually simmer the water until the beeswax melts into the jojoba oil. Remove from heat and allow to cool until the mixture just begins to turn slightly hazy. Stir in the essential oils and pour into a small jar or tin. Allow to set up. Apply to chest whenever needed.

Protect & Prevent. These simple wipes feature a combination of purifying and protecting essential oils. Use them as a convenient and practical way to protect yourself on the go.

2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon Isopropyl or rubbing alcohol
6 drops Aura Cacia Tea Tree essential oil
6 drops Aura Cacia Lavender essential oil

Blend ingredients together in a small measuring cup. Individually stack and fold 24 paper towels. Saturate the paper towels with the mixture and store in a small, heavy duty zip lock type freezer bag. Retrieve them one at a time and use them as hand wipes.

EucalyptusEucalyptus, also known as fever tree, yields the quintessential therapeutic essential oil. It provides the warm, camphory, forestlike aroma that we associate with chest rubs, steam vaporizers and even cough drops. Eucalyptus oil is steam-distilled from the leaves. Its main purifying constituents are cineole and camphor. Most eucalyptus oil is distilled a second time to isolate and concentrate these constituents for the pharmaceutical industry. But Aura Cacia offers the complete essential oil, which retains the nuances of its fresh, foresty aroma. For aromatherapy, it's best to use this natural, non-redistilled oil with its full compliment of constituents.

Eucalyptus has also long been used for its warming, muscle and joint penetrating properties -- a few drops of eucalyptus in a massage oil will ease tense muscles and soothe soreness. A diffusion of the oil will purify the air and inspire deep, clear breathing.

Purifying Eucalyptus Steam Bath
1-2 quarts boiling water
2-3 teaspoons of eucalyptus or rosemary leaves
7 drops Aura Cacia Eucalyptus
3 drops Aura Cacia Lavender

Apply oils to leaves and place in the bottom of a large bowl. Pour on boiling water and enjoy the steam.
