With Autumn just around the corner, many of us will be getting ready to go back to work, school or university. While we may feel sad that the long, hazy days of summer are coming to an end, it’s hard not to feel a sense of anticipation at the opportunities we may be blessed with over the coming months, although, initially, these may be considered challenges. Feeling anxious, for example, at the prospect of little ones starting ‘big school’, or whether older children will make new friends as they move from primary to senior school. Saying goodbye to excited teenagers, who are leaving home for the first time to go to university, causing ‘empty nest syndrome’. Seeing such challenges as opportunities can, however, be beneficial for our mental and physical health. We may decide to resume careers previously on hold, change career or even go back to college. Using essential oils can help both parents and children deal with change so that everyone can get ahead in the new academic year.
One of my favourite ways to integrate Aromatherapy in the home is via an aromatherapy treatment bath! As an Aromatherapist I always make sure that, as well as providing a massage, I am giving great aftercare advice to ensure that my clients can make the best use of Aromatherapy themselves. What I tend to do, therefore, is send them away with a small bottle of their bespoke essential oil blend that we’ve mixed together during their treatment, so they can continue balancing their health at home! In particular, I advise that they can pop the essential oil blend into a bath to have their own mini treatment sessions – perhaps making it a regular ritual for self-care.
At Base Formula, we’re huge advocates of a healthy lifestyle, and regular exercise is an important way to help both the body and the mind. There are a ton of benefits that we can glean from exercising, but sore muscles certainly are not one of them! That feeling of aching, weary limbs that makes simple tasks seem suddenly impossible is something we’ve all experienced after a workout.
As I sat in my garden writing this article, I found myself in awe of the natural magnificence that surrounded me. There is so much healthy goodness in the world, and until we take a pause from daily bustle and sit in nature, just breathing in its beauty, we forget what we have in front of us! So what better to write about this month, I thought, than how to incorporate the garden into our Summer skincare? Off I set, gathering ideas for all-natural face mask recipes for a ‘Secret Garden’ selection!
