Aromatic Dressing

What is aromatic dressing, and why is it amazing?

Aromatic dressing is a daily ritual using your oils that you can easily add to your life. It is all about giving your body the nourishment it deserves. You lovingly massage an oil or a beautiful blend with a carrier oil onto your body while you talk to your body with messages of joy and acceptance. You can create your own personal powerful affirmations and aromatic anchors as you are using your doTERRA oils.

Once you’ve had a shower or bath, start at the bottom of your feet and work upwards towards your heart. Apply the oil in big circular motions as you layer your body with oil and loving words. Start your morning with power and purpose, and finish it with relaxation and peace.

There are endless combinations that you can use! I love to do my aromatic dressing in the morning, while the children are focused on having their breakfast. Often I will do a quick “emotions check” and ask myself how I am feeling. I’ll look at my diary and see what I have on, and think about how I want to feel during the day. If I have lots of things to do, I will pick a motivating combo. If I have something I’m anxious about coming up, Peace & Joy is a good option.

It’s also a great way to include the whole family in using oils. My children love getting to join in with me in the mornings! I’ll ask them which oils they would like to be using, and then we all aromatically dress together. I love that I am empowering my children to be proactive with their health.

What exactly are essential oils?

So…. what actually are essential oils? Let’s have a look at what they are and why they are so amazing.

Essential oils are pure extracts from plants. They are very volatile which means they have a tendency to evaporate. Steam distillation or cold pressing is the most common way to get the oil. The oils capture the “essence” of the plant- so they have the scent and flavor.

They have been used anciently and throughout history. However with the increase in technology it’s easier to source, distill and test them to ensure purity and potency. Using oils gives a range of benefits including emotional support and physical health.

Each oil contains hundreds of different compounds, which provides complex and versatile abilities to combat threats without building up resistance. Incredibly, oils are lipid soluble which means they can penetrate a cells wall to provide support at a cellular level. They are sourced from nature so they are effective and safe. The chemicals in the oils interact with your body in a variety of ways.

Essential oils provide an affordable and effective alternative to synthetic remedies.

Basically….they are little bottles of AMAZING which you can have in your home to support your families health and well being naturally. With just a reference book and a box of oils, you can address most of your families needs.

Quality of essential oils is extremely important. You need to be confident the oils you use are PURE and POTENT. They must have no additives, fillers or synthetics. One of the reason I use doTERRA is their focus on quality oils. Each batch is independently tested by a third party and you can learn more at the Source to You website.

Perfumes vs. PURE-fumes

Ever since I was a little girl, perfumes gave me headaches. Walking through the cosmetic counter at the department store would see me sneezing and with itchy watery eyes. I used to hate the thought of essential oils because any time I’d ever smelled them (usually in the $2 shop) I would instantly feel unwell.

In preparation for my Pure-fume class I started doing some research on fragrance. Holy MOLY! It’s some seriously scary stuff.

“There is little information available on the materials used in fragrance. Fragrance formulas are considered trade secrets … Fragrance is increasingly cited as a trigger in health conditions such as asthma, allergies and migraine headaches. In addition, some fragrance materials have been found to accumulate in adipose tissue and are present in breast milk. Other materials are suspected of being hormone disruptors. The implications are not fully known, as there has been little evaluation of systemic effects” (Bridges, 2001)

Now I totally understand wanting to smell nice. Having a beautiful fragrance makes you feel amazing! However I do not want to be risking my health by using a toxic chemical. Perfume is now considered to be the new second-hand smoke for it’s negative health impacts and the way in which it lingers and negatively impacts even though who aren’t using it. Indoor pollution can be more polluted than the outdoor pollution in even the most industrialised city, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

If I can convince non-oilers of one thing, I hope that it would be to stop using perfumes and start using PURE-FUMES! You can easily use your essential oils to create a personalised fragrance that has none of the nasty side effects of commercial perfumes. You can make up any combination from floral to musky to woody to uplifting to calming PLUS you are supporting you mental, physical and emotional health.

Imagine if instead of spending $240 on a bottle of Chanel #5 instead you bought a starter kit, some carrier oil, and a diffuser. You have a choice where you invest your money….use it wisely.

If the thought of blending and mixing seems a bit daunting, then I would suggest looking at the Touch oils. They are pure essential oils that have been mixed with fractionated coconut oil and come in an easy to apply roller. I’d suggest Passion roller, it’s got a spicy aroma that will help you feel excited, passionate and joyful. You could add a drop of Citrus Bliss as well as it adds a sweet citrus hint.
