Excitement & Release: Spring

The scent, the feel, the beauty. Spring. Way cool. An exciting, energizing time. A sense of new growth. A feeling of potential. Spring Trees StreetThe possibilities. It’s happening. With this comes the shedding. The letting go. The re-evaluating what stays. What goes. What belongs. 

Ok. From a body-skin perspective we’re talking about excess weight. Congested tissue. And toxic build-up. The essential oil solutions.

Think movement. Citrus and oxides. Lemon, orange (sweet or bitter), grapefruit. Eucalyptus (radiata, globules, smithii), MQV, tea tree, rosemary cineole type.

 A spring cleanse. Release. The recommendation is to go to a health practitioner versed in herbal and dietary cleansing. The essential oils are used as an adjunct and everyday support.

 Lemon is the choice to support phase 1 and phase 2 liver detoxification. A half to a whole squeezed lemon daily is suggested. The essential oil is an ideal replacement – one or 2 drops in a glass of water twice daily.

Shower with essential oils. Two drops of MQV. Powerful. This oil from Madagascar supports immune function and helps elimination of impurities from the body. Rub a couple of drops over the body after cleansing in the shower – check for sensitivity by applying behind the knees in your first MQV shower. Bay laurel is a well known oil for lymphatic support. Apply a couple of drops in the shower. Do not use bay laurel more than 4 – 6 days in a row. Can be sensitizing.

In the morning and evening use a good massage blend that contains a synergy of “movement.” A blend of detoxifying essential oils provide internal conditioning by supporting the body’s natural eliminatory processes. The added benefit to daily self massage comes from using a good organic vegetable oil base that conditions and protects the skin.

You can do this with Lymphatic/Detox Massage, our blend of exquisite, limited production for therapeutic intensity essential oils in a base of coconut oil, castor oil camellia oil and other luscious skin conditioning oils.
