THE BENEFITS OF USING AROMATHERAPY DIFFUSERS FOR TRAVEL…

Not all places in the world smell nice. If you plan to go on a vacation or do some travelling, then you won’t be able to enjoy sweet-smelling air quality that often. Some people aren’t bothered by this, but there are some that are. It’s not a shame to wanting to breathe in clean and pleasant air. Of course, it’s not the air itself that smells sweet. It is the aromatherapy diffusers that make it that way.

Have you ever smelled or used an essential oil? They smell wonderful. Imagine putting them in a device and have that pleasant smell spread everywhere in the room. How awesome is that? You won’t have to breathe in the poor air quality anymore. It’s one thing to have the device in your home. You come from work or school stressed out; you turn the device on and start to relax. For other interesting facts about the product, check out bemoxe.com.

But what happens when you plan on going on a vacation? What happens when you plan to travel the world? Well, here’s some good news for you. You can take the device with you and keep it with you at all times. Here are some of the things that will make that happen:

PORTABILITY
The aromatherapy diffusers are not huge. In fact, they are just the right size so you can put them in your backpack or suitcase. How cool is that? You can take your diffuser with you and every time you check into a room, you can turn it on. If the device is something that you’ve gotten quite used to, then it is reasonable to take it with you. Those hotel rooms are not always the best, but you can make them the best. Once you turn the device on, it will be like you are in your own home.

EASY TO USE

There’s not much to the device to try and figure out. They have different designs and sizes but they all function basically the same. If you take it with you on your travels, you won’t have a problem with how to use it. After you leave the hotel, you can take the diffuser with you. That’s why they are so popular; you can carry them with you and use them almost every single day. On the plus side, they are incredibly easy to handle and before you know it, you are in a meadow of sweet-smelling sounds. Read more here.

WONDERFUL AIR QUALITY

As mentioned above, you will not always encounter rooms that smell nice. But you can do something about that. The beauty of the device is that you can use many different oils. Once you get tired of the first one, change it to another scent. Either way, the air quality will start to smell wonderful and you can begin to feel the stress leaving your body. Everyone wants to smell something nice. Why would you feel any different? That’s why you shouldn’t waste any more time and take the device with you.

BETTER SLEEP

Travelling from one place to another is exhausting, especially if you enter different time zones constantly. You will often feel tired. That’s why you need to sleep to begin to feel functional once more. Having your aromatherapy diffuser with you can be of great help. You can turn it on as you prepare to go to bed and let the smell consume you. It will be much easier to fall asleep and rest your body. Once you get up, you can begin to explore the city and overall enjoy your vacation in a foreign country.

PRACTICALITY

It is clear enough that there are a lot of benefits tied to the diffusers. One of the best things about the device is its practicality. The product can make you feel content, help you sleep better, beautify the air quality and it’s easy to carry around with you. What more could a traveller want? You won’t make the mistake of buying one right now. After you start using it, you won’t be able to get enough of it.

And, they make great Christmas gifts.

ALL ABOUT AROMATHERAPY OILS, HOW TO STORE THEM AND HOW THEY HELP WITH FIBROMYALGIA PAIN…

Aromatherapy oils can be used for a number of illnesses and treatments and the storage of them is an important factor. They are a great oil to use for Fibromyalgia pain.

My love of essential oils goes back about 20+ years. The hospital where I had my first spinal surgeries had a lady that came into the hospital on a weekly basis and gave patients aromatherapy massage if they wished to have it.

She was a quiet small lady whose aura gave a feeling of calm before she even gave you the aromatherapy massage. She would mix the oils at the time you arrived by first finding out what sort of pain you were in. If I go somewhere that sells or uses these oils it takes me straight back to my regular session with my aromatherapist.

Unfortunately, like all of us, she eventually retired and although I still have the odd aromatherapy massage I have yet to have a treatment that reacted in quite the same way.

Sometimes I will use an aromatherapy diffuser scent ring, to fill the room with my favourite oils. Lavender (which also reminds me of my Grandma as she always wore it) mixed with rosemary oil is top of my list.

When I first went to my NHS Pain Clinic some years ago they offered amongst other alternative therapies massage treatment. I was keen to get booked into this in the hope it would be as good as my aromatherapist treatment. The massage was good but without the oils, it just didn’t have the same effect on me. I would previously come home feeling completely relaxed and would sleep so well on the day of my treatment.

Storing your oils is important for their lifespan. Try to store your oils in a dark amber glass bottle, this will store it better. If they are stored in a clear or plastic bottle they will deteriorate in about 8 weeks.

Always store away from direct sunlight, in a cool and dark place is best. If stored correctly they could last up to one year.

To make your oils go further, add five to 10% of wheat-germ oil, as it helps to preserve the mixture.

Before you massage ALWAYS do a patch test first to check you are not allergic to it.

Always wash your hands when you have finished the massage.

A blend of natural oils which have been drawn from five different countries is being used as a pain treatment for Fibromyalgia.

Called 024 Fibromyalgia, it has been developed by Swiss Medica in Canada and is available in a bottle or as a wipe.

It is made up of camphor oil (Japan), eucalyptus oil (Australia) aloe vera oil (Mexico) peppermint oil (India) rosemary oil (Spain) lemon oil (USA) and orange oil (USA).

It was launched in the USA in January 2006 and is one of the first products that was developed specifically for the pain of Fibromyalgia. It’s all clinically tested and from natural products.

Many Fibromyalgia forums have written comments on this oil with some having great results and others no so great, but that can be the same with drugs or treatments as it seems pains affect people differently.

Written by the experts, Neals Yard Remedies: Essential Oils book will bring the rejuvenating aromatherapy benefits into your life.

REIKI THERAPY FOR FIBROMYALGIA AND OTHER CHRONIC PAIN…

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a complementary therapy which was named after Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese theologist.

Reiki is a Japanese word, meaning Universal Life Energy, an energy which is all around us. It is regarded as ‘life’s energy’ and creates a feeling of deep relaxation. Energy blockages are removed, allowing a free flow of life energy throughout the body. Toxins are removed from the body with other waste products leaving the system much more quickly. Then, with the toxins removed from your body, more energy can be received and your vital processors and functions become more highly tuned.

The hands are the main instrument used in the healing by Reiki, and can be effective through clothing. It has also been useful for anyone taking drugs to help reduce some of the side effects. They say it is possible to heal acute injuries but chronic injuries can take longer to heal. Reiki is a therapy available to anyone, and can help the receiver of the therapy to achieve a more relaxed approach to life and greater harmony.

On the UK Reiki Federation website – you can find all you need to know about this type of therapy as well as finding yourself a good therapist.

A great book on this subject, of which there are many is ‘Essential Reiki: A Complete Guide to an Ancient Healing Art’ by Diana Stein.
