Vanilla, scent of the Month

Vanillla1

Hi there.

I will be writing about different scents I use throughout the month and why I use them so that you can get an idea of what goes through my head when I change the scents I use for treatments and products that I make.

The scent for the month is Vanilla. I love Vanilla. It is inviting, calming, smoothing. It is easy on the senses and it is very good for your body. Vanilla is high in anti-oxidants and is healing for the skin. It has a very sweet smell and when added to products, it does not really change the colour of the product I am making.

I make a few products with it. I make lip ice, body scrubs, candles, I burn vanilla incense in my treatment room to give it a warm and inviting smell.

Vanilla goes great with mint, peppermint, rooibos and berries. So give Vanilla try and see how it will enhance your day and ring positive energies to your world around you.

Namaste

Minty Fresh

There is nothing better than a cup of mint tea after a long day or mint infused creams to help relieve muscle pains…

Mint is an organic herb that you can grow in your back garden or even have in a pot in your kitchen. It is very easy to grow and loves water. All you need to do is grab a few stems from a friends house, plant it in some soil and water it daily. Watch how your mint grows like wind fire.

In terms of treating people, Mint helps with a few symptoms. First and foremost, after a very large meal one feels bloated and uncomfortable. Grab a few mint leaves, pour boiling hot water over it, wait for it to infuse and enjoy. The mint will settle your stomach and take mild nausea away. Mint also helps with body aches and pains. You can infuse mint in your bath to help with your muscles as well as make an oil out of it.( place the leaves in grape seed oil, close the lid tight and infuse the oil with the mint essence. This can take up to a month) Place the oil onto the area of concern and you have a home made natural oil.

Mint also helps boost your metabolism and all round a great herb to cook with.

So go grab your mint leaves today and start growing your very own herb or medicinal garden.

Namaste…
