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.

 

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!

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.
