For improved focus, a healthier body, less stress and a balanced mood … you’ve got the thyme. You may not yet know that certified organic Thyme essential oil is a uniquely powerful tool for healthier systems and a more natural environment. It could become your next best friend, aromatherapy-wise. Thyme is one of the lesser-known essential oils, but just because it isn’t all flash and glitter doesn’t mean it isn’t full of good stuff—B-complex vitamins, beta carotene, vitamin A, vitamin K, vitamin E, vitamin C, and folic acid, for instance. It’s good for addressing everything from circulation to stress relief. If you wonder how to use Thyme essential oil effectively in your home, here are a few quick tips:
If you experience occasional cold hands and feet, or achiness in your large muscles, you may have bad circulation. As part of a bigger solution, try diluting a few drops of Thyme into a tablespoon of Sweet Almond Oil for a potent and effective massage oil that goes more than skin deep. Apply a small amount of the dilution directly to the skin and rub in gentle, deep strokes across your limbs and toward your heart (or get a friend to lend a hand). The combination of Thyme and a relaxing deep massage can benefit your circulatory health.
If you are feeling congested, add a few drops of essential oil to your ultrasonic diffuser, combining Thyme with Peppermint or Eucalyptus essential oil to promote feelings of relief in your chest. Thyme works well to loosen feelings of tightness in the chest and leaves your whole body feeling refreshed and relieved from the sniffles.
Thyme essential oil works well as an insect repellent. You can use it to deter mosquitoes, gnats, flies, no-see-ums and other pesky bugs by using this highly concentrated full-strength oil around windows and doors, or dilute it with a lotion or carrier oil and apply it to your skin.
If you ride the emotional roller-coaster every month, you may want to consider adding Thyme to your support strategy. The sweet, herbal scent is a smart addition to a mood blend, especially one designed to help you find hormonal balance during rough times of the month. Consider combining sweet Thyme with Clary Sage and Fennel for a powerhouse combination to handle monthly mood swings and feelings of physical cramps and aches.
Relieve feelings of stress with the powerful effects of aromatherapy using Thyme essential oil. Combine Thyme with the spice-and-wood scent of Lavender essential oil and a drop or two of Cedarwood essential oil in a diffuser for feelings of emotional release and calm, even on tough days. Bring the blend with you to work and breathe in deeply for feelings of calm and focus when you need it most.
If you’ve ever shared a house with a teenager (bless you and your cardiovascular health), then you’ll understand the challenge of trying and getting their lanky, unreasonably long limbs untangled from blankets and balanced on their colossal feet before noon. Medical professionals know that kids need more sleep … and parents know that teenagers often choose not to get it. It can make weekday mornings something of a challenge for families … especially in winter, when shorter days keep it dark many mornings and 7 a.m. still feels like the dead of night.
Good habits can help teens wake up and (here’s the key) stay awake in the morning. A regular bedtime, banning screens from the bedroom, and a healthy breakfast will give you a good start … and essential oil diffusion can be an important part of the routine. N8 Essential’s certified organic Energize Blend is a sweet combination of premier natural constituents designed to work on both a physical and mental level to naturally wake up body and brain. And, the great thing about this sweet blend is that you don’t necessarily have to be in your teenager’s face for them to enjoy the benefits. Placing a few personal care products in their stumbling path every morning can do the trick … Energize Blend infused shampoo, conditioner, body wash and lotion all offer the sweet natural energy found in these essential oils while your teenagers do what they do in the bathroom every morning … for an unreasonably long time.
Or, if you feel like getting more in their face for some morning attitude adjustment, there is a way to do that too. Diffuse a few drops of Energize Blend combined with certified organic clary sage and a drop or two of certified organic frankincense in their bedroom in the morning. The Energize Blend helps body and brain to move to a higher level of alertness, the organic clary sage works to balance and lift the mood, and grounding organic frankincense helps the aromatherapy effect to last beyond the first bell of the morning.
There is no guarantee that using Energize essential oil blend around your teen will mean they’ll save you any hot water this week, but at least they’ll have a smile on their face while they use it up.
