Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit: Restoring Emotional and Mental Balance with Essential Oils is one of my favourite aromatherapy books. Gabriel Mojay brings his knowledge of aromatherapy and traditional Chinese medicine together in this beautiful book.
Essential oils can affect our physical, emotional and spiritual selves. Mojay explains the therapeutic properties of many oils and how to make synergistic blends to help restore balance.
Like many natural therapies, less is more in aromatherapy. I adapted this simple blend suggested by Mojay to use in a rollerball, so you can easily use it throughout the day.
- 5 drops Lavender (Lavandula augustifolia)
- 3 drops Neroli (Citrus aurantium)
- 2 drops Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)
in 10 mls jojoba oil. Shake to blend before using.
Note: Neroli is a precious and expensive oil. I use Neroli sur fleurs available from www.raedunphy.ca.
