Aromatherapy Insight Card Reading

This week’s intuitive reading included two citruses and one tree essential oil.

AIC June 25 2018
Jennifer Jefferies’ Aromatherapy Insight Cards • Reading by LJ Turtle Aromatherapy 

Cedarwood: Courage; grant me the willpower, focus and persistence to keep working towards personal and business goals.

Lime: Eases Stress; remember to have fun and play 🙂

Petitgrain: Conscious Mind; I already have all the answers within; listen to that small quiet voice for guidance.

This reading was compelling; themes hung together which was helpful for me. I put together the following blend to use at times of stress, lack of focus, and when needing guidance.

Roll-on recipe blend:
1 drop Petitgrain
3 drops Cedarwood
2 drops Lime
Topped off with almond oil • 5 ml volume

Oh Canada! Essential Oils

Essential oils come from all over the world. Given our abundance of forest, Canada is well known for its ‘tree’ essential oils.

Black Spruce for example, is invigorating and revitalizing to the whole being and is suitable to use with respiratory issues and rheumatic pain.

Eastern White Pine can be used to reduce anxiety and stress.  Its warming properties make it suitable to use for rheumatic pain.  It is also a powerful essential oil to diffuse or inhale directly from the bottle – as it helps prevent the spread of flu and other air borne viruses.

Balsam Fir is the very recognizable ‘Christmas tree’ smell! It is a powerful essential oil to diffuse for relief with respiratory congestion.  Make a muscle rub by blending with a carrier oil for relief of muscular and joint pain.

carry Black Spruce, Eastern White Pine, Balsam Fir, and Spruce Hemlock, which are wild-crafted and distilled in Quebec.  I also carry a Chocolate Peppermint and White Sage from the same distiller (in very small quantities); and I recently started carrying a local lavender from a farmer in Moffat, Ontario.

Each of these is available for ‘sniff’ testing at my market stall at the Guelph Farmers’ Market on Saturdays.

LJ Turtle single essential oils are suitable for:

• Diffusing with a nebulizer
• Use with our diffuser jewelry
• Simply ‘sniff’ from the bottle
• Use with our felted designs
• At safe concentration levels, may be blended for topical use. We carry DIY roll-on kits

Happy blending!
