Nurture; Our Essential Oil Blend

Nurture Essential Oil Blend.

 

The concept of self-nurturance is not new.

In fact, it has been practiced for thousands of years by cultures across the globe, who have used essential oils as part of their daily health and wellness routine.

 Self-nurturance is the act of caring for one’s physical, mental, and emotional needs. It is part of the concept of self-care and is broader than the idea of self-love. The concept is based on the idea that if a person does not take care of their own needs, they cannot truly healthily love others.

Here are a few examples of how different cultures have used essential oils throughout history to nurture:

  • Ancient Egypt 

In ancient Egypt, essential oils were used for their healing properties. In particular, they were used as an antiseptic and insect repellent. They were also used to make perfumes, which were often applied directly to the skin or mixed with other ingredients to create fragrances.

The Egyptians took baths in oils made from cinnamon bark, eucalyptus leaves, and juniper berries. They also rubbed their bodies with oil made from rosemary leaves before swimming in the Nile River to prevent sunburn.

Geranium Egypt essential oil has also been used for centuries by Egyptian women for cosmetic purposes and for treating various health problems such as colds, coughs, and fevers. It is also used in aromatherapy to treat emotional issues like depression and anxiety.

  • Ancient China 

In China, it is believed that aromatherapy originated about 3000 years ago when a physician named Ni Huan Zhi experimented with herbs for healing purposes. He discovered that certain combinations of plant extracts had healing properties when inhaled or applied topically. 

He also found that certain scents had calming effects on patients who were suffering from stress-related symptoms like insomnia or anxiety disorders. His findings led him to develop a formula called “Eight Fragrance Formula,” which contains eight essential oils, including lavender, orange blossom, and jasmine, which are still used today in holistic medical practices worldwide. Essential oils also had spiritual significance because they were often burned as incense during religious ceremonies and rituals.

 

 

  • India

The traditions of self-nurturance in India are varied and ancient. In Ayurvedic medicine, essential oils are used during treatments for physical and spiritual healing purposes. The practice dates back thousands of years and continues to be an integral part of Indian culture today.

It’s common to see people walking around with colorful vials filled with essential oils around their necks or wrists. These vials are infused with various aromatic ingredients like sandalwood, jasmine, and rose that have been used for centuries to promote health and happiness.

In addition to using essential oils for medicinal purposes, Indians also use them for mood enhancement and relaxation in their homes. For example, it’s common for people to light a candle infused with lavender oil before bedtime while taking a bath to help them relax.

  • In Europe

 In Europe, essential oils are used for aromatherapy massage sessions in spas and clinics throughout the continent. Essential oils are also used for aromatherapy baths, foot soaks, and inhalation.

Aromatherapy candles are another type of self-nourishment. Essential oils are used to scent these candles, which are composed of soy wax or beeswax. They can be utilized to create a soothing atmosphere at your home, office, or even in your car while driving.
