Appreciating the need to unwind in todays busy world both in person and technology led me to reflect on what outcome people would need to be truly calm when stressed. I wrote a list of what I believed those needs to be; to improve sleep, to deepen breath, to ease anxiety, to ground emotions and also ease sensitive skin conditions, such as Psoriasis that often arise when stressed.
Knowing that this would be one of the most requested blends at The Massage Company I had to ensure the formula was right and in all 3 blends they had to be appealing to both men and women alike.
Let’s start with the ingredients:
Carrier base oils – Evening Primrose, Avocado & Wheatgerm
Essential oils – Petitgrain, Frankincense & Sweet Orange
Dominating oils – Evening Primrose, Avocado & Sweet Orange
The story – I turned to what I would call my timeless blend, what I reach for when a client reels off a list like I mentioned earlier and it always delivers on the promise, ultimately to calm and relax a person.
Evening Primrose oil is omega rich and high in Vitamin F to calm stressed skin while easing hormone imbalance.
Avocado brings a richness in texture, creamy even and feeds the skin with Vitamins A, B1, B2 & D and the minerals of; Potassium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Sulphur, Calcium, Sodium & Copper.
Wheatgerm gives a richer texture due to a high Vitamin E content and forms a natural preservative.
Frankincense, ancient in its use enables a much deeper breath to happen, used for meditation and for those who are short of breath, perhaps Asthmatic.
Sweet Orange refreshes and uplifts while easing anxiety, simply joyous to smell too!
Petitgrain extracted from the bark and twigs of the orange tree offering a warmer aroma with depth and earthiness that grounds our emotions.
