HI Roll On Remedies

My 1st experience with an aromatherapy roll on was from Tisserand around 6 years ago. It was from the Rose range and I was instantly attracted by the ease of the roll on ball attached and how it is so fuss-free when applying something so precious and therapeutic. I then had a few actually: De-stress, Travel, Menthol Breathe, Energy and also Sweet Dreams. Yes, I am BIG fan of the brand and the man. That’s me alright, if I like something I’ll get various types of the same item. I am THE heaven-sent customer. 😉

The next brand I like that provides the aromatherapy roll on was Young Living. I am huge fan of the Breathe Again Roll On! It was helpful many times in nipping the buds of an incoming migraine. It was too pricey for me though, and when a bottle broke into pieces for no reason why one hot day, I really did feel the huge pinch of the price tag. And when I exhausted my last bottle I thought, “why not make my own”? Exactly.

I have been recycling my many essential oil bottles and whipping up my own remedies for my own family’s usage and also for my 2 best friends as part of their birthday gifts. The favorite seems to be the blend for sinuses, colds, headaches and migraines. So I made Breathe Remedy™. It is quite similar to the Breathe Synergy Blend™ that I made recently here. It is a concise blend of Peppermint, Eucalyptus smithii, Rosemary Basil and Frankincense in a base of wholesome carrier oils. *Note: I had forgotten to include Frankincense in this bottle’s label. Booboo.*

My bestie’s niece, Aqilah, fell in love with her auntie’s roll on and requested for something to help her with focusing in school and to avoid falling asleep in class! So I made a customized one for her and named it what else, *surprise* Aqilah’s Study Remedy™. Hers is a complex bouquet of Rosemary, Grapefruit, Cedarwood, Petitgrain, Geranium, Lavender, Basil and Peppermint. Phewww! When I tried her blend on my wrist, I felt so alert and refreshed and actually felt quite peckish after 20minutes. How’s that for stimulation, huh? 🙂

Rose Rose I Love You! (And why not?..)

I have been using only Rose Damask hydrosol as my facial toner for more than a decade! Long gone are the days of choosing the various toners for my skin, comparing brands and prices and finally, after many unused bottles … Continue reading

My Recipe : Prenatal Aroma Body Oil

My DIY prenatal oil ingredients..

Ok. So, I am an ITEC & IFA qualified aromatherapist. So I am 7+ mths pregnant for the 1st time and I should be worried about the nemesis by the name of “stretch marks” or striae (singular stria), as they are called in dermatology. So I should be doing my very own blend of skincare right? And not scramble to the nearest pharm AGAIN for creams, lotions & potions right? SO… This is what I’m up to then.. Wheeeeeee! 🙂

I’ve been mixing my own facial oils, massage oils, hair & scalp oils for my family and both for me and husband’s usage so now I’m gonna STOP giving credit and profit to Palmer’s and its lovely cocoa butter and make use of my lovely (and expensive) essential oils for my belly, breasts and wherever that this baby is stretching me and my largest organ out to! (basically everywhere!)

Thanks to Tisserand, one of my fav aromatherapy brands of course..
I love the Face & Body Pure Blending Oil, as it contains all the goodies you want in a base oil. There’s organic moringa, sesame, jojoba and is rich in antioxidants and Omega 6 and 9. Mix it with 3 extra good friends this pregnant woman can have- Lavender, Frankincense & Rose.. I could’ve used Mandarin instead, since its cheaper but what the heck.. Live and let live.. What better time to splurge on Rose anyway??..

Now, a disclaimer– I do this blend because I love these oils, and I like it obviously because its effective and powerful as a skin oil; but I won’t go around telling people this is the only good blend ok? No reader of this post should too. There’s loads of good skin recipes, easier on the budget too.. But during pregnancy, you’d be told that its prudent to use only Lavender. Bahhh! Bullshit. I ‘m sick and tired of sooo many spas and also other therapists pressing too much on contraindications during pregnancy! I was rejected to have a massage by countless spas and massage places just cos I was pregnant! Perhaps they’re not qualified, and if it’s that’s the case, I truly appreciate their honest rejection. But some tell me I”M NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE MASSAGES OR BE IN CONTACT WITH ESSENTIAL OILS. Hullo, I’m pregnant, NOT SICK AND AILING. Needless to say, I couldn’t be bothered at all to tell them I’m a therapist AND a trainer.. Sigh.

A pregnancy is a period that SHOULD NOT be ignored, in fact it’s a time to be pampered more and much generously.. Hell, if i could do me own pre-natal massage, I’d be doing it everyday! But see, I can’t. So I make my own potions, lotions and elixirs.. And I’m happy. 😉

Here’s a guide:

20 ml Base Oil 

5 drops Lavender

3 (teeny tiny stingy) drops of Rose

3 drops of Frankincense

Shake/Stir it well, store in glass amber bottle and away from sunlight. I bet this amount won’t last long for me, but I’d like to improvise as I go along- so smaller amounts are goooood.

Enjoy!
