Oh Christmas Tree

13 12 2011

ImageSo it’s that time of the year again when people start to stress out about shopping, planning and those sometimes crazy family gatherings. For me it’s also been a time when I find myself congested. Is it the change in weather, the extra food goodies, stress, I have never figured it out or maybe a combination of all of above.

While working on some new Holiday inspired scents for clients I researched pine oils and was pleased to find that those little needles may be just what I needle to feel better. Pine oils like spruce, black spruce and balsam fir are commonly used in pharmaceutical preparations to treat coughs and colds and specifically for bronchial infections. As a side benefit they also ease mental stress, anxiety and revitalize the mind and body.

One note of caution, those synthetic over powering pine aromas will do more harm than good. Always with fragrances seek essential quality therapeutic grade oils. These are easily found on-line or at your local health food stores.

What a find, this year the smells of the Holiday, freshly prepared in our diffuser, may keep me happy, healthy and wise.
