Help Me Have A Mindful Of Calm Range

 

Hello everybody and welcome back to our little HMOblog! Today, we are introducing the last of our BRAND NEW ranges that will be available from the 1st of December. The third range that we would like to share with you is our “help me feel fresh as a daisy” range, which I would love to tell you about.

Some of you may have already seen the room spray from this collection as it was featured in The Unibox’s November box as an exclusive product! I am sure you will be able to read all about the product on their website and their social medias as well as from their lovely subscribers. We have received some lovely feedback from everybody who has tried it so far so we are very excited for it to be available to everybody from December!

So, why did we create this scent? Firstly, mindfulness is something that is very current in both mine and my Mum’s life. Not only do I incorporate mindfulness into my daily routine but my Mum, Linda, is in the middle of her mindfulness training to become a mindfulness coach. Taking a few seconds, minutes or even an hour out of your day to take a breath, regain control of your thoughts is incredibly important and something that everybody should do. I like to do 10 minutes of mindfulness when I am lying in bed before I go to sleep. Yes, I don’t normally make it to the 10 minute mark without snoring my head off but if I do, it makes me feel so incredibly relaxed and my quality of sleep is immensely better. This range was created with mindfulness and meditation in mind. We have blended frankincense, geranium bourbon and lavender together to bring tranquillity and harmony into your life. Something that we all need.

So, a little bit about the essential oils we have used:

Frankincense:

Used to help ease panic attacks, anxiety and stress, Frankincense is THE oil to aid meditation and relaxation. It will ease a troubled mind. In massage Frankincense is wonderful to fight stretch marks as it is a rejuvenating oil, it is truly effective to massage your stomach (in a clockwise direction) to bring a sense if calm during a time if panic.

Geranium Bourbon:

Is a balancing and regulating to your hormones, emotions, body and soul. It is a powerful immune booster, sinus cleanser and builds your resisted e to stress. Massage your abdomen (in a clockwise direction!) to ease period cramps.

Lavender:

One of the best known essential oil, it’s benefits are immense. We use this oil to calm, protect, boost your immune system and soothe muscular aches & pains. You will find Lavender in most our products as it is deeply therapeutic and beneficial to everyone.

As I mentioned in the last blog post, we have been working on these next three ranges for a very very very long time and to have their launch within touching distance is overwhelmingly exciting for us! Each collection has been developed by our own aromatherapist, Linda, who has been working with essential oils for over 25 years. You could say that she knows what she’s doing. If you would like to ask her anything at all about any of the collections and essential oils used then you can contact us on our social medias @helpmeorganics or via email: contact@helpmeorganics.com and she will be more than happy to answer your questions. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new products and, don’t worry, the wait is nearly over.

Help Me, They Say Exercise Is Good For You Range

 

Hello everybody and welcome back to our little HMOblog! Today, we are introducing the second of our BRAND NEW ranges that will be available from the 1st of December. This one is called “help me, they say exercise is good for you” range and I would like to tell you a little bit more about it:

We understand that Christmas is one of the best times of year for many reasons, the main being the ability to indulge in both food and the odd little (or big) tipple. Then, January comes, you realise that your clothes are a little tight and you launch yourselves at the stack of exercise DVD’s collecting dust on the shelves. Exercising is brilliant, don’t get me wrong, but exercising too much can end in very sore and tight muscles that will need a little bit of attention. That’s where this range comes in. We have blended lavender, lemon, juniper berry, pine and sweet marjoram together to make this wonderful range.

So, a little bit about the essential oils we have used:

Lavender:

One of the best known essential oil, it’s benefits are immense. We use this oil to calm, protect, boost your immune system and soothe muscular aches & pains. You will find Lavender in most our products as it is deeply therapeutic and beneficial to everyone.

Lemon:

Lemon has a wonderful fresh aroma, it is helpful to lift your moods and is a valuable immune booster.

Juniper Berry:

If you struggle with anxiety “burn-out”, this is the essential oil for you, juniper berry eases your emotional system and eases constant thoughts. Use our massage oil to clear excess fluid & toxins, juniper berry is excellent to help fight uneven skin tone, lumps & bumps.

Pine:

An uplifting, cleansing essential oil, Pine will clear your head and sinuses and leave a beautiful fresh aroma. By massaging our massage oil, the pine really helps to ease painful muscles and soothe nerve pathways.

Sweet Marjoram:

This is a warming, antispasmodic essential oil which helps to clear sinuses, ease headaches, helps you to relax and unwind . When you apply our massage oil, muscular aches & pains ease, inflammation  and joint pain reduces.

As I mentioned in the last post, we have been working on these next three ranges for a very very very long time and to have their launch within touching distance is overwhelmingly exciting for us! Each collection has been developed by our own aromatherapist, Linda, who has been working with essential oils for over 25 years. You could say that she knows what she’s doing. If you would like to ask her anything at all about any of the collections and essential oils used then you can contact us on our social medias @helpmeorganics or via email: contact@helpmeorganics.com and she will be more than happy to answer your questions. We hope you are as excited as we are for the new products and you will be hearing from me this time next week with our third and final range announcement!

What is smell…

For something to smell, it must exist as a gas or vapour and be carried into the nose by air. Smells enter the nose by inhalation through the nostrils, but odours can also flow from the mouth into the nose from the odorous components of the flavour of the food.

Only a very small proportion of inhaled air reaches the Olfactory organ, but when it does, the odours can cause us to suddenly recall events from the past, when we associate the odour with a previously experienced emotion.

It is possible to train the mind to focus on the sense of smell, so establishing and developing an Olfactory memory and the power of discrimination of odours.

Essential oils and Olfactory

When inhaled, essential oil particles are taken directly to the roof of the nose, where the receptor cells of the Olfactory system are situated.  From each receptor cell protrude thin hairs called cilia, which register and transmit information about aromas, via the Olfactory bulb, to the centre of the brain.  From here, electro – chemical messages are forwarded to the area of the brain associated with smell.
These trigger the release of Neuro chemicals,  which may be sedative, relaxing, stimulating or euphoric.   Other messages may be relayed to other parts of the body registering the oils effects.  Aromatic particles also travel down the nasal passages to the lungs.
Most people can detect 10,000 different odours (many flavours are smelled rather than tasted).  Research has identified primary smells to be Fragrant, Fruity, Spice,  Resinous, Burnt or foul.

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said that “the way to health is to have an aromatic bath and scented massage every day”
