Just as a token of our appreciation of your order we will send you a Sad Shop’s own special brand of aromatherapy oil to help with your treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder. 

Aromatherapy Oil scents have been proven to have a powerful effect on our moods. They are particularly effective in the treatment of mild SAD symptoms

Theoretically, the smells of the oils elicit positive emotions through the limbic system (the area of the brain responsible for memories and emotions). However, the benefits of aromatherapy appear to be related to the relaxation effects of the treatment as well as to the recipient's belief that the treatment will be beneficial.

HERE ARE SOME APPLICATION SUGGESTIONS!

Skin Care:

Facial Steam: Add 3-6 drops of oil in warm water putting a tent towel over your head to capture the steam, or use in a facial steamer.

Facial Masque: Add 3-5 drops of oil to your favourite facial masque.

Facial Oil Blend: Add between 3-4 drops of essential oil to your favourite cream or lotion per each individual application

Dry Brushing: Dry body brushing is a great way to help stimulate your skin and to help improve circulation. Apply 2-4 drops of essential oil to a natural bristle bath brush. Work the brush movements towards your heart starting from your toes. Omit the face and neck.

For sinus or bronchial problems:

Inhalation: Add 3-6 drops of oil in hot water putting a tent towel over your head to capture the steam. Inhale keeping eyes closed. Can be repeated approximately every 4 hours.

Bath:

After filling bath apply up to 6 oils in to water preferably mixed with milk to help oils disperse. Lie back and relax for up to 10 minutes then pat skin lightly dry.

Compress:

To help relieve muscular pain add up to 6 drops of essential oil to a bowl of warm water. Immerse a cloth in to the water, wring out then apply to affected area. Re-apply as often as required.

Shower:

After showering, apply up to 6 drops on to a damp cloth and gently rub over body then allow to air dry.

Bath Salts:

Add up to 6 drops of essential oil to a handful of Epsom Salts (excellent for tired, sore and aching muscles), Sea Salt or Baking Soda. Add directly to a warm bath. Alternatively blend with 10ml (approx. tablespoon) of carrier oil and briskly rub in to skin prior to bath for that all over glow!
