Aromahead's July Newsletter:
Your July Guide to Immune Support!

Newsletter from: Andrea, Karen, and Jenny

From Andrea, Karen, and Jenny

Hi friend,

Happy July!

This month’s newsletter is chock full of immune support blends for you.

Many businesses around the world are opening their doors again, with the understanding that the potential to get sick is still present. Taking natural measures to protect your health can be simple and feels very empowering.

It’s never been more evident how closely connected we are.

The way that you care for yourself truly does affect those around you.

Below, you’ll find immune boosting perfumes, inhalers, cold and flu diffuser recipes, nighttime allergy blends, and more. (Many oils that boost immunity also calm respiratory symptoms, making them excellent choices for allergy season.)

We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your dedication to research-based natural health. It’s more important than ever!

Love,
Andrea, Karen, and Jenny

A Recipe for You:
Peru Balsam Immune Perfume

Roll on this sweet, woodsy perfume to boost your immunity! Peru balsam infused jojoba has a light, vanilla, caramel-like scent. It makes an excellent perfume all by itself, and a gorgeous base for the immune-protective, symptom-calming oils in this blend.

  • 10 ml Peru balsam infused jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
  • 3 drops Sandalwood oil (Santalum album)
  • 3 drops Sweet orange oil (Citrus sinensis)
  • 3 drops Thyme ct linalool oil (Thymus vulgaris ct linalool)
  • 1 drop Rose absolute oil (Rosa × damascena)

Make this blend in a 10 ml glass bottle with a roller-ball top.

Pour the jojoba into the bottle, and add the essential oils. Snap the roller-ball top into place, and roll the bottle gently between your hands to blend.

If you don’t have Rose (it’s expensive!), go ahead and substitute Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens) or Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia).


blog - DIY Hand Soap Recipes And Why to Use Thyme Oil!

On the Aromahead Blog:
DIY Hand Soap Recipes (and why to use Thyme oil)

Did you know that Thyme essential oil was used in field hospitals in WWI?

Salvatore Battaglia mentions this in his book, The Complete Guide to Aromatherapy.

“Thyme was extensively used to medicate gauze and wool for surgical dressings. It resembles carbolic acid in its action, but it is less irritating to wounds and its germicidal action is greater.”

Thyme has been used in similar ways throughout most of recorded history.

Tips from the Aromahead Team:
What if there were a natural organism that could
break down pollutants?

And what if we could work with that natural organism to clean up the toxins in our environment, restoring our world to a pristine state?

That’s the groundbreaking idea in the book Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World by Paul Stamets!

Aromahead’s Case Study instructor Michele Mazur highly recommends it! (Michele works one-on-one with students in Aromahead’s Aromatherapy Certification Program.)

“In this book, Paul Stamets explains topics such as how certain mushroom cultivation practices, like inoculating polluted soil with mycelium, can actually break apart and digest hydrocarbons—the base structures common to many toxins—thus healing the land in a relatively short period of time.

“My favorite part of the book was his explanation of the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms.”

CBD oil has been a hot topic in the last few years, and we’ve received so many questions about how this oil interacts with essential oils.

At Aromahead we are dedicated to education and the newest scientific research, so we’ve pulled in our good friend and CBD expert, Colleen Quinn from LabAroma.
Colleen has put together this free live training to teach you, and she is hosting this twice, so you don’t miss out!


 allergy relief

Aromatherapy Video:
Grown Up Nighttime Allergy Relief

This recipe includes Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana) and Black Spruce (Picea mariana) to help with both allergy symptoms and immune support. 

Watch and make the recipe!

There’s also a kid-friendly version of this recipe, which is why we say this one is for grown ups! You can find the kids’ version in the description below the video

When you make the blend you also have the option of including a bit of Solubol to help keep the essential oils dispersed through the aloe vera. (Solubol is what’s known as a “dispersant”.)  Simply add 4 drops of solubol per 1 drop of essential oil.

See you next month!

Before we say goodbye, there’s one more important aspect of immune support we want to touch on:

Keeping your home clean.

Germs and microbes sure do like to collect in our homes, don’t they? They build up on countertops, doorknobs, and cabinets. They collect on keyboards and phones. They even float around in our indoor air. 

That’s why keeping your home clean is key to staying healthy.

And since toxic chemical cleaners can cause respiratory issues or allergies, we suggest avoiding those whenever possible. (They can also be challenging for the plants and animals we love.)

Instead, make your own all-natural, essential oil cleaners. Here’s a recipe for The Best Smelling Natural Cleaning Spray with Essential Oils.

(Here’s a tip! In the recipe, try replacing 0.75 oz of the water with high-proof alcohol (190 proof, such as Everclear) to destroy as many germs as possible.)

See you in August!

Love,
Andrea, Karen, and Jenn
