January is the fresh start we all need after the busy holiday season. Taking the decorations down, cleaning the house, refreshing the space all help you to ground and focus. I love using blends in January that re-energize me and support my immune system. I also love making body butters and balms to help nourish and soothe my dry skin. Oils like Helichrysm, Rosemary, Sweet Orange and Spike Lavender support the lungs, the mind and the skin. Jojoba and Almond oil are the carriers of choice for me in winter. I love the consistency and how well they nourish and lock in moisture. Knowing exactly what goes onto my skin gives me a peace of mind and connection to nature.
Massage clients this time of year are also looking for stress and pain relief and I love creating massage oils that suit their needs.
I encourage you to take time this New Years to reflect and unwind. Create yourself a space to reconnect and restore yourself. A cup of herbal tea, a good book, a nice blend in the diffuser…and a Happy New Year indeed.
Cheers and Happy Blending!
