Aromatherapy and Angels March-April 2014 edition
This has been quite a crazy winter! We live in Northern New Jersey, have had lots of “indoor” family time due a very harsh winter season. We have all gone from the “Holidays”, right into bad weather and Matthew has had many “snow days” off from school, how I loved those as kid!!!
What is best for our Angels and families?
Routine, fresh air, eating well, sleeping well & controlling “stress”. This helps us keep our minds, bodies and immune systems working well and helps to protect us from colds and flu. It is important to keep our spirits uplifted, and our bodies and minds balanced.
Morning Routine: Start our day with warm water & a few drops of Lemon Essential oil – this is a natural cleanse.
Matthew & Family – Thieves Essential oil on feet every morning. This “Anti viral and Anti bacterial” blend of clove, Lemon, eucalyptus, cinnamon & rosemary is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health. Matthew’s College Brother takes thieves in capsule form, Once a skeptic, now a believer , as it has kept him healthy!
Diffuse Purification or Thieves depending on your needs. I have been diffusing a lot of Purification lately, I love the smell and it just clears the air of so many impurities, germs and un wanted odors, the blend is very uplifting as well… I often diffuse Peppermint and Lemon later in the afternoon when we all need some extra energy.
Diffuse Joy – a blend Bergamont, Rosewood, Lemon Helps with emotional balance & is very “uplifting” Matthew is a “human diffuser”, a few drops of our favorites on his bandana, jacket and self, helps bus & school aides and teachers too!
Day Time Routine:
Avoid Germs at School or Day Program Support
Send in your own: Activities for Daily Living Kit – Thieves hand Sanitizer, Foaming Soap, Desk Spray, Toothpaste, Lavender Lotion (See how in Angelman Today’s next issue)
