Some Wisdom for your lungs…

by Dec 28, 2021Education, Knowledge, News, Oil of the Month0 comments

What do Conifer trees, winter solstice (in the N. Hemisphere), Christmas trees and health all have in common?  And why do I specify N. Hemisphere?

One word:  L U N G S
Lung power is important, especially in the colder temperatures.  We can build up phlegm and feel sluggish, like hibernating for weeks. Our lungs can easily build up fluid if proper health practices aren’t in place. Pneumonia, Bronchitis, COVID-19 and all varieties are affected greatly by the respiratory system.  Do steams with these treasures of nature and dissolve viral issues.  I have a friend in India that has had 100% success in KILLING the COVID virus rapidly with simple ‘towel over the head’ steams.  Amazing! 
There is a saying in yoga, “trees that have deep roots and flexible limbs survive hurricanes”.  Think of the deep roots to trees such as, Firs, Cedarwoods, Spruces, Pines, Hemlock. 

 

FYI~ Balsam Fir is not a ‘true’ Balsam. A Balsam is technically an oil extracted from a resin that contains benzoic or cinnamic acid. Officially Conifers are trees whose seeds are produced in woody cones with needle-like leaves and resinous wood

There are several different plant families you’ll find in the group of Conifers, as listed above.  The Conifer trees generally offer fresh-herbaceous-coniferous aromatic aromas. Their notes are uplifting, stimulating and invigorating. They can enhance our energy, stimulate circulation, improve motivation and even stamina. They are mentally refreshing and emotionally restorative. See why they are used so heavily November – February?  They help us get moving and infuse the spirit of ‘light’ in us, when things can feel dark.

The high ‘monoterpene’ components encourage a movement of energy in the body, which supports opening up the lungs and even the sinuses, which is highly supportive to overall vitality in the mind, body and spirit. This also means they can expire faster.  Keep them capped tightly, in a cool and dark place. NEVER IN THE SUNLIGHT.

 

So diffuse those holiday blends when it’s cold! Add 1-2 drops per Tablespoon of carrier (like Jojoba, Sesame or Olive.. NOT coconut) and massage onto achy tired muscles.  Avoid the face but scalp application lightly is divine. Stay in the hairline.  Want to create a chest rub? Add 1-2 drops into 15 mL of carrier and add 1 drop of Eucalyptus. Ahhhhhh breathing will feel unrestricted and emotions will balance.

All of our holiday blends have Conifer oils, to enhance your physical and emotional wealth during the busiest time of the year, in the ‘modern’ time.
