My First Blend, My Sickness, and My Fun

I keep a journal of the blends that I made on every occasion that involves aromatherapy. The case study is about the first blend that I made for myself in relieving my sickness. It turned out to be a great success. I discovered a protocol I keep using in healing.

I caught a cold yesterday. I realized that my immune system was weak. When I felt the headache in the evening, I used tea tree oil to massage my head and I felt better.

When I woke up next morning, I could not do anything as my head ached and I had a mild fever. Therefore, I took a delicious breakfast with a glass of strawberry milk & some biscuits. I felt a lot better after a good meal. A delicious meal can help speed up the healing process.

Today, I take my first step to try blending. It's really fun. It requires knowledge and creativity.

My blend is as follows:

1 drop of lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
1 drop of geranium (Pelargonium roseum x asperum)
2 drops of ginger (Zingiber officinale)
1 tsp (5ml) of olive oil

It is relaxing, comforting, and stimulating. The hot ginger can help to expel the surface wind cold, while lavender and geranium calmed my heated organs. It smells great, not too intense. The mild fragrance is very well suited to those who are sick.

I then use the mixture to massage my chest, the back of the neck, my ears, my nose tip, the area between the nose and mouth, and abdominal area.

This blend works well to calm the menstrual pain or PMS too. After the applications, I took a cup of lemon with salt water. It is so soothing. I have never thought that being sick can be an enjoyment. If I was not sick, I do not know when I will have my first blend. This is my first product. This blend helps one to sleep well when one is sick.

I still experienced some spillover effect of the wind cold today. As the symptoms had almost gone, I blended another oil which is more fragrant. It was because I could take more fragrance now.

My blend is as follows:
1 drop of lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
1 drop of Jasmine absolute (Jasminum grandiflorum)
1 drops of sandalwood (Santalum album)
3 drops of lemon (Citrus limon)
1tsp (5ml) of olive oil

I used the blend to massage back of the neck, shoulder, temples, nose tip, area between the nose and the mouth, my shoulders, chest and upper back area.

It is relaxing and astringent – it lessens the mucus. This blend is very relaxing and will cause drowsiness. After falling asleep, I feel much energetic now.

Conclusion: The two blends that I made were not targeting at healing my fever or cold, but making me more relaxing to fall asleep. When I am in deep sleep, my body can heal quickly. In my own philosophy, I prefer my body to do most of the work in the healing process, instead of relying on "outside help". This experience reaffirms my belief on that, and it really works well. Although I ate things that were not 100% natural, the improvement in my mood helped me to recover in a speedy way.
