The best way to re-hydrate a dry skin is to replenish the sebum levels and organic unrefined oils are the best and only way to do this. At helpmeorganics we strongly believe that by including carrier and essential oils into your day will increase your level of well being and the suppleness of your skin. We have designed pre-blended organic massage oils to make it easier for you to use after your bath or shower or indeed as a massage at home.

So let’s look at the science behind massage, aromatherapy and the power of touch.  I have been an Aromatherapist for nearly 30 years so yes I am biased but there is strong scientific evidence to back up my passion. When someone gives you a hug , holds your hand or a places a hand  on your shoulder, suddenly you feel reassured, strong and loved. This is because your nervous system sends messages to your brain which in turn releases endorphins to announce to your body that you are happy and in a good place. Remember how lovely a hug from your parent suddenly makes everything OK,  aromatherapy has the same effect, certain smells send the same message to your brain.

We have carefully chosen our carrier oils to be therapeutic in their own right. Organic unrefined Avocado oil is highly nutritious  being rich in vitamin A, B1, B2, B5, D E, it has anti inflammatory properties so ideal for a sensitive skin. Organic jojoba oil helps to rebalance the level of sebum in your skin as it tricks an oily skin to reduce the amount of sebum produced, on the other hand jojoba oil increases the sebum production for a dry skin. Our last carrier oil is organic camellia oil, rich in omega 6 and super quick at being  absorbed by your skin, camellia oil improves the elasticity of your skin and helps to repair sun damage.

So we know that carrier oils deliver hydration and protection to your skin, we have added our special blend of pure essential oils to our massage oils, each one helps to remedy a situation. In our “help me, it’s way past my bedtime” we have blended Melissa,  lavender, eucalyptus and ginger to counteract most situations which get in the way of a good sleep so you could use our massage oil to work in a clockwise direction on your stomach whilst concentrating on your breathing to slow you down, use our convenient dropper to apply the oil.

Our “help me, I’m feeling under the weather” is your little bit of protection if you are feeling like you are coming down with a cold, massage our oil on your upper body so that you breathe eucalyptus,  lavender,  tea tree, peppermint and tangerine while you drift off to sleep, our oil blend will help to keep your airwaves open so no need to breathe through your mouth.

At certain times we can feel as if we are running out of balance on an emotional level, use “help me, apparently I need to chill out” to soothe and calm while everything settles down. If you struggle with PMS, period pains, massage a small amount of our oil onto your stomach and breathe,  then keep warm and wait, it will ease.  Feeling anxious, don’t worry, the combination of palmarosa, geranium, ylang ylang and lavender will wrap the feeling of comfort around while you allow your breathing to slow down.

If you are very lucky to have someone to massage your feet, our massage oils are perfect, easy to apply just remember to shake the bottle to make sure all of  the oils are mixed together.  Our massage oils are to be enjoyed, loved and used at all times, we have used small bottles so that the oils are actively therapeutic. These massage are not suitable for babies/infants or pregnant ladies as the ratio of essential oils are too strong. We recommend storing them in a cupboard out of direct heat and light and remember to use them , you will enjoy the benefits and love aromatherapy just as much as we do.

Welcome to our summer collection “help me bring sunshine to a cloudy day”

When I began to formulate our summer collection, I wanted to create an effective summery blend which will bring summer into your home, as well as helping you to enjoy eating outside. After all, it is vital for our health and wellbeing to get out in the sunshine as much as possible.

I have combined the organic essential oils citronella, lemongrass, peppermint and spearmint to help you enjoy your summer. Citronella and lemongrass are renowned to protect against insects, both contain the chemical constituent, citronellol. Insects don’t like the smell and will avoid at all costs. Also, ants dislike a minty smell and we use two very active mints in our blend. You can add 4/5 drops of our aromatherapy blend into a bucket of water and swill around your doorways, you can safely add our essential oil blend to your floor wash to give a wonderful happy, citrus fresh aroma which help to keep your kitchen fly free.

During the summer months, weather permitting, we spend more time eating outside (until the mosquitos find us that is)! We have a natural soy wax candle infused with our organic essential oils, designed to provide a “safer” zone to deter flying insects. Light your candles and enjoy the summery blend permeate into your dining area.

There are many ways to utilise our “help me bring sunshine to a cloudy day” products, we have listed below some ideas:
1. As mentioned above, burn our soy candle whilst you eat al fresco. Not only will you be left alone but the citrus aroma is just beautiful. Before eating, swill the area under your dining table (outdoors) with a bucket of water and 4/5 drops of our blend.
2. Spray 2-3 bursts of our room spray around your home, the essential oils will keep your rooms fresh and summery.
3. Use our aromatherapy blend in many ways. Put 4/5 drops in a bucket of water and rinse your path, doorstep to deter ants.  Place 3/4 drops in a bowl of water onto your kitchen windowsill to keep flies away and finally pop 2/3 drops onto a tissue and place upstairs on windowsills to deter mosquitos.

Although we cannot guarantee no flies or mosquitos, we are very confident that their numbers will be reduced. Our essential oils will not kill or hurt the insects but will encourage them find somewhere else to hang out!

Be careful, keep all bowls and tissues away from children or pets, animals must not drink water containing our blend of essential oils. Remember to shake our bottles to mix the oils together and finally never leave a burning candle alone or in reach by children.

If you use our aromatherapy blends in a really useful way, let us know so we can share the tips after all our products are planet friendly, vegan friendly and very effective in a lovely organic way.
Happy Summer!
