Aromahead's March Newsletter:
Respiratory & Immune Support


From Andrea

Hi friend!

This March, I want to address a lot of concerns and questions the Aromahead Team is getting.

People want to know how to protect their respiratory health.

Essential oils are here for you! In this newsletter, you’ll find a diffuser blend to purify the air, several ways to use Eucalyptus oil, and an immune support inhaler. And the great thing about using essential oils for wellness?

They are "multi-purpose!"

Essential oils that are good for respiratory health do a lot for us:

  • Reduce germs in the environment
  • Reduce germs in the body, if you “come down with something”
  • Boost immunity
  • Help clear out mucus, so you can breathe more easily

Nature can support us in so many ways.

Keep using your oils, and keep breathing… you got this!

Dr. Shannon Becker is a PhD scientist… and an Aromahead graduate!

She studies cell biology, and says, “My mission is to combine my scientific training with clinical aromatherapy training, in order to help others.”

“As someone with chronic pain, an anxiety disorder, and difficulty relaxing, I know first hand how useful essential oils can be alongside ‘traditional’ therapies.”

I want to share Dr. Becker’s article about viruses with you. It was published by the Tisserand Institute. (Robert Tisserand is a well-known specialist in essential oil safety and science.)

Read her article to deeply explore the mechanics of how viruses interact with our cells, and how essential oils can help.

I am so grateful to Shannon for the work she’s doing to help us understand essential oils more fully, and use them more effectively!

Calming Inhaler Blend

Tips from the Aromahead Team:
Dana's Calming Inhaler Blend

This tip comes from Dana, one of our fantastic forum instructors at Aromahead!

Dana answers questions from our students on the Aromahead Forum, providing guidance on blends and supporting students as they work through their courses. You may have seen her answering your comments on Facebook, too. She’s a multi-tasker at Aromahead!

Dana’s Calming Inhaler Blend
  • 5 drops Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens var roseum)
  • 5 drops Plai Central (Zingiber cassumunar)
  • 2 drops Spearmint (Mentha spicata)
  • 3 drops Hemlock spruce (Tsuga canadensis)
Add to a blank Aromatherapy inhaler.

Dana says, “When I’m worried or my brain is in overdrive and I can’t sleep, I reach for this inhaler. I chose these oils because they help me with anxiety and/or when I can’t get to sleep because my brain won’t slow down. Geranium, Plai and Spearmint are sedative to the central nervous system. Geranium, Spearmint and Hemlock Spruce are known to help with anxiety, while Spearmint and Hemlock Spruce are sedative oils.

“I have several clients who LOVE this blend… I hope you do, too!”
