GOT THE BLUES???
Post natal depression testimony
I opted for aromatherapy and tried jasmine oil, rose otto, neroli oil, ylang ylang and lavender oil in a blend and placed several drops on a handkerchief which I placed under my pillow at night and found it to be hugely successful! It is surprising how a pleasant smell can affect your emotions. I think they help balance your hormones, but whatever this does it worked for me. I carried the handkerchief around with me during the day to discretely smell and calm down. After several deep whiffs, I felt great.
AROMATIC BATH FOR THE BLUES
¼ cup honey (or almond or jojoba oil)
3 drops of YL Lavender oil
3 drops YL Ylang Ylang oil
2 drops YL Basil oil
2 drops YL Geranium oil
1 drop of YL Grapefruit oil Mix the essential oils in the honey and fill a warm bath and soak & Breathe Deeply!
A concentrated massage oil blend for mild depression:
2 T. sweet almond oil
1 t. wheat germ oil
8 drops each of Lavender and Ylang Ylang essential oil
2 drops each of Basil, Geranium, Bergamot essential oil
Collect oils in an amber glass bottle and add the sweet almond oil /wheat germ oil. Shake gently before use and apply a small amount on the back of your hands, neck and heart area. Inhale deeply and apply 2-3 times for best results
DEPRESSION AND INSOMNIA
Depression can be a major cause of insomnia. St. John’s wort, Melissa and Frankincense have been proven to be highly effective in reducing depression. Calcium/Magnesium, potassium and other minerals deficiencies can contribute to insomnia/depression. NingXia Red is the best source of carefully balanced, absorbable minerals.
