We are in the midst of a worldwide pandemic. Panic is setting in all around the world as people are experiencing anxiety and uncertainty over the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
My heart goes out to the thousands of families who have lost their loved ones and for those who are currently diagnosed with the Coronavirus.
While the rest of us are social distancing and in some cases on lockdown, this is a difficult and stressful time. However it is important for us to keep calm and look after our mental and physical wellbeing.
With schools now closed, trying to homeschool my two kids and keep them entertained is rather overwhelming!

Peppermint Essential Oil
Peppermint essential oil comes from a hybrid of mint plants. This particular type of Peppermint oil has a very strong aroma, making it ideal for use in aromatherapy practice and fragrances. The medicinal properties of Peppermint have been documented for many years, with emphasis as a reliever for the symptoms of coughs and colds and as a natural decongestant. It also has benefits when treating IBS and digestive complaints and can be massaged in to the stomach to soothe indigestion and bloating. Peppermint’s unique fragrance is also very clearing to the mind. Including a few drops in a vaporisation blend will help to sharpen concentration and focus a busy brain.

Rosemary Essential Oil
Warming and revitalising Rosemary essential oil is a potent and powerful inclusion to stimulating aromatherapy blends. Native to the southern Mediterranean, this hardy herb now grows prolifically throughout Europe. Steam distillation is applied to the leaves of the Rosemary shrub, releasing intensely herbal essential oil, hailed for its effects in boosting circulation and invigorating the skin and mind. Use in diffuser blends with a citrus or mint fragrance to cleanse a room and awaken creativity. A few drops inhaled from a tissue may also help to improve short term memory, particularly helpful during exams or periods of in-creased workload.
