Spring is a time for renewal and rebirth and the perfect opportunity to freshen your space. Clean out an old closet, donate some old books, and clean out your aromatherapy stock. Toss any old or oxidized oils that are older than 3 years. Wipe down your containers with sanitizing wipes, marry up half used bottles and take inventory. Re-energize your self and your space with a new routine, new yoga practice or take a new route.

The floral oils are wonderful to use this time of year, to reinvigorate your spirit and to keep you grounded as the season changes. Lavender, Hyssop, Rhodoendron, and my all time favorite, Geranium- all pair beautifully to bring s little beauty to you life. Happy Spring, and Happy Blending!

March is a tempestuous month whose weather can change on a dime (blizzard anyone??) But it is also the gateway to Spring, and a great time to start planning your spring garden, organizing and cleaning out your herbs and aromatherapy oils, and making plans for the nicer weather!

I love using immune supportive and cleansing aromatherapy oils this time of year. With cold, Covid and flu still abound, keeping my space healthy is imperative. I also love refreshing oils that add brightness after the long dark winter. Oils like Lemon, Sweet Orange, Peppermint and Rosemary are always brewing in my house!

I also love skin nourishing herbal balms for my dry skin, chalk full of emollients and nutrients to help me feel my best. I currently have some dried calendula steeping in jojoba oil for a skin salve I am making! Love this time of year!

I wish you lots of happiness and energy as we expand towards spring. As always, keep blooming, take care and see you soon!

Happy Blending!

February is a short, but fabulous month, and a great time to tune in to the soothing sensuality of the season. My blend of the month is aromatic and rich, featuring notes of lavender, rose absolute, geranium, sweet orange and clove bud. Perfect for a diffuser blend on a cold winters night, or a spray for the yoga mat for a deep winter stretch. As a topical, it works wonderful for pain and inflammation, as well as soothing the nerves. It also has self love, and antidepressant qualities, so adding some to a linen spray for your favorite blanket or your pillow may help you sleep and restore yourself. The dark winter months can leave us feeling down and blue if we are not careful; so up the ante on the self care. A cup of herbal tea, a good book, a relaxing massage, or a chat with a mental health specialist may help guide you to sunnier days. Take care and keep blooming!

With Love, Erica
