Reduce Night Terrors with Juniper Berry

Juniper berry.2Juniper Berry (Juniperus communis) assists those who fear the dark.  Instead of hiding from what they do not understand, it encourages individuals to learn the lesson and face their fear.  Juniper Berry acts as a catalyst by helping individuals access and address those fears and issues which have long been avoided.

Dreams contain night time communications.  Even nightmares can reveal unresolved fears and issues.  It offers courage and energetic protection in the night time.

Emotions that Juniper Berry can address are irrational fears, recurrent nightmares, restless sleep.  Other fantastic oils which can be blended together are black pepper, clary sage and vetiver.  You can also blend with bergamot, citrus oils, cypress, geranium, lavender and rosemary.


When Fear Gets Too Much

When fear gets too much a lot of the fears turn into irrational fears.  Currently, we have adult losers who are targeting a neighbour every night for the last 3 months.  I am really stuck on what kind of people would do this every night.  I am sure there is better things to be doing.

However this has taken an emotional toll on the girls, especially Emma.  Emma is now at the stage when fear gets too much.  Her fears have become quite irrational and her anxious feelings are through the roof.

Thank you LOSERS.

Nevertheless, we are desperately trying to help her through these emotions.  When fears gets too much it can really disable your life.

This week I am trying basil and a massage blend of essential oils in the diffusers to see if they can ease some of the fearful emotions.

When fear gets too muchBasil, primarily: overwhelm, fatigue, low energy and the inability to cope with life’s stressors.  Basil also helps to relax the mind.  This oil is also excellent for states for nervousness, anxious and sadness.







When fear gets too muchThis oil is a blend of essential oils.  This blend help calm, relax and releases physical tension.  This oil helps when feeling tense, stiffness in mind and body, stressed, unable to relax.








Vetiver Essential Oil

VetiverVetiver (Vetiveria Zizanioides) is one of my most used oils especially for Grace.  I have found when Grace is really unsettled and not coping, if I roll a special blend called the Peaceful Child Blend up her spine, it grounds her quickly and  she is able to cope better.

The distillation of vetiver is a painstaking, labour intensive activity.  The roots and rootlets have been used in India as a perfume since antiquity.  It has a heavy, smoky, earthy fragrance.

Vetiver oil assists in becoming more rooted in life.  Life can scatter one’s energy and cause one to feel split between different priorities, people and activities.  It centers individuals in themselves in self and to the root of their emotional issues.

Emotions that can be addressed are disconnected, scattered, stressed, need to escape.

Roller Bottles (10ml) When you purchase, I will ask the age of child/adult so that I can mix it safely with fractionated coconut oil.  Mixing the oils with a carrier oil enhances absorption and also reduces chance of sensitiveness.

Single oils:  $15.00 Aus dollars for any of the single oils.  This includes postage.

Blends:  $25.00 Aus dollars for any of the oils blended together.  This includes postage.

DIFFUSER (5ML) The cost of these oils are the same as above due to the fact that more oils are used in the bottles because I have not added any carrier oil.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender Essential OilLavender (Lavandula Angustifolia)

Lavender is widely used for it’s calming qualities, however for some people it may have the opposite affect. It can soothe occasional skin irritation. It may reduce the appearance of skin imperfection. Lavender may ease feelings of tension.

On an emotional level lavender can help people who have a dark fear of being seen and heard. Lavender supports individuals in releasing the tension and constriction that stems fear from expressing one’s self. Lavender encourages emotional honesty. Lavender can also help those who have a fear of rejection.

Always make sure that you apply the lavender with a carrier oil so that it reduces the chance of sensitization. If you already know that you react to lavender, I would avoid using it altogether. You can put a drop on your pillow or on your feet during your night time routine.

With some Epson salts you can put a couple of drops to your bath and have a wonderful soak. You can put it on the back of your neck but make sure it is mixed with a carrier oil.

In a glass bottle, you can mix a drop in water and freshen up your linen closet, care, or around the house.

You can put it in your cooking but I suggest putting a skewer in the bottle and mixing the skewer in the food.

Lavender is safe for young children but please make sure it is mixed in a 10ml roller bottle with a carrier oil before applying. For a young child all they need is one drop in a 10 ml roller bottle with the rest filled with a carrier oil. Never apply it neat.

How do I use Essential Oils to Ease Anger?

Essential Oils and Anger
Numerous clients ask me how do I use essential oils to ease anger?  In this post I have discussed what are essential oils and how they are used in Aromatherapy.

For my family I am always looking at ways in which I can support us emotionally as we tend to get stuck in emotions.  When I had my first experience with essential oils through an AromaTouch, I was flabbergasted on how effective they immediately were.  I had tried essential oils in the past and had no success.  However from what I have learnt is that purity is a must to have the best success with essential oils.  My friend, who was giving me the AromaTouch, noticed that I relaxed quickly considering she also does Bowen Massage and I rarely lie still.  It was simply amazing.

Hubby has also gone through a temporary stage of depression and it was to the point where he rarely spoke to me.  My friend suggested that I put a drop of essential oils on a tissue and lie it next to his head whilst he slept.  So I tried it.  I felt so bad putting it near his head when he slept.  However, believe it or not, the next morning he was actually talking to me.  I couldn’t believe it and neither could he.  He said it helped him and he kept putting a grounding blend on himself daily.

For the girls, I have worked out which oils they respond to better.  I am always amazed that some oils Grace responds to really well whilst Emma doesn’t respond to them.  Some oils make Grace sleep walk whilst the same oils make Emma sleep really well.   Up to the age of 7, Grace never slept in her bed the entire night.  But they first thing we noticed when I introduced oils into our lives that with a blend of oils it improved Grace’s sleep so much that she actually woke up rested and ready to start the day.

Lately,  Emma has been really angry about everything and I have to admit I haven’t been using the oils as much.  I love putting the oils in the diffuser which I do regularly but haven’t been doing it as much as I used to.  But Emma needed help.  Her anger was happening so often it was draining her energy.  So I used the above blend in the diffuser and as well topically (please do not use any oil topically as a lot are not pure even though they say they are 100% pure) and over the last few days, the anger has gone.  She now asks me to put the oils on her because she knows they are helping her.

It can be hit and miss with essential oils at the start because everyone is different.  However, when you get the right combination you will never look back.

If you would like to purchase the above blend which is great for grounding and reinvigorating you, please send me an email at as I can make up the diffuser blend for you and I can make up a roller bottle and mail it to you.  If you need a diffuser you can purchase them through me as well.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy involves using concentrated essences of a plant to bring about change.
The word aromatherapy is somewhat misleading because it implies a patient gets better just because he/ she smells an essential oil. This is only half the story. Sniffing an oil will alter mood, and in some ways that is medicine. If you’re feeling tense and you relax, then this is most certainly therapeutic, but essential oils are capable of so much more.
They are made up of miniscule chemical molecules. It is believed each single drop of oil contains 40 million trillion molecules (that’s 19 zeros!) That equates to 40,000 molecules for every single cell in your human body. These tiny molecules give essential oils their aroma. There are so many of them, that when you open the lid, they literally explode from the bottle dispersing into a room and filling it with their fragrance. This evaporation quality is what we call volatility.
These molecules are small enough to squeeze through the pores of your skin and enter your blood stream through the capillaries in the base of the dermal layers. From there, they circulate around the body to work in an incomprehensible number of different ways.
The molecules are also able to enter the body via your nose. Here the oils encounter nerves that send messages to an extraordinary mechanism called the limbic system. This part of the brain controls memories, moods, emotions, recognition and even learning. Inside the head, the brain has many structures protecting it from injury and contamination. The obvious one is the skull, but there are many more including what is called the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB). The BBB does exactly what it says on the tin, it protects the brain from any germs or bacteria circulating in the blood. Scientists now believe, rather than being like a wall, stopping everything going through, the barrier acts like a sieve or a filter, if you like. Very few things are able to pass this barrier. The molecules must be extremely tiny to permeate it.
Research shows that certain parts of essential oils are capable of passing through this barrier, opening up a new exciting arena for my friends in their lab coats. These magical oils come from a group called Terpenes.

I have been using essential oils as a tool with my family’s wellbeing and I am continually amazed on the benefits it has for us all.
Over the next few weeks you will read information about how to choose quality essential oils and how to use essential oils safely.  It is extremely important that you research essential oils before using them so that you are fully aware of their benefits.

Why We Use Essential Oils

We have been using essential oils for about a year as part of my families well being and as I get more confident in using them for multiple purposes I know that we will never look back.

Essential oils are one of the great untapped resources of the world.  Here we have a system of natural help our bodies to function at a higher level than it is probably operating at.  These extremely complex precious liquids are extracted from very specific species of plant life and are in harmony with people and planet alike.  By taking essential oils into our lives we find a way to provide our family and home with the protection and pleasure they need without polluting ourselves or our environment with chemicals.

These days the household goods we use are mostly chemical-based, and the food we eat and the air we breathe contain more chemicals than we would like.  The cumulative effect of these, and the unknown effects as they react together within us, cannot be good for us, any more than chemical overload is good for the planet.  Sooner or later we are going to have to find some alternatives and, for some of our problems, the alternatives is literally right under our noses, drawing us to them with their sweet-smelling aroma – precious miracles and delights of creation, nature’s essential oils.

I am continually surprised how versatile the oils are and there are so many ways to use them.  As a family we have been using them to enhance our body function, improve our emotions, reduce our emotional overload and use them more and more in household tasks.

Someone once said to me what would people do if we couldn’t access medicine, hospitals, supermarkets due to a natural disaster?  I am always relieved that I have essential oils available if this ever was the case.

The Amazing Zyto Scan for Essential Oils


Tonight, I had the most amazing zyto scan for essential oils done for clients and my girls. I was really looking forward to seeing how the oils went with Grace with all her emotions at the moment. I can not believe how accurate the scan actually is with not only physical needs but also emotional needs.

For Grace, we use oils daily for Grace but on the scan it came up with myrrh, vetiver and cleansing blend. I felt quite emotional with these oils because:
Myrrh – on an emotional level is aimed at the mother-child relationship. Grace is feeling quite insecure at the moment and checking all the time where I am. Myrrh helps bridge the gap between mother and child where the disturbance has been.
Vetiver – helps you feel grounded and helps to recognize awareness of emotions.
Cleansing blend aims at cleaning out the negative and toxic emotions and the negative attachment which reflects were we are at with our mother and daughter relationship.

For Emma I never know what oils will come up for her.
Peppermint: was the first one which was what I thought as her sinus area is blocked and peppermint is great to help the breathing function of the body to open up.
Ylang Ylang – Reconnects an individual with the child self and the pure, simple ways of the heart. It reminds the the individual that joy can be felt and experienced more fully by allowing the heart its full range of emotions. I will be interested in how this may help let emma feel confident that she does not need to ask me to pretend to be someone without asking me first if it is ok.
Geranium – id s gentle oil, perfect for babies and children. It nurtures the inner child and supports in re-parenting this aspect of the self. It blends well with the ylang ylang. It is also a very calming oil which helps calms the nervous system which emma needs.
Cedarwood – supports individuals in seeing that they are not alone; life is a shared experience. I am hoping this will help emma to feel more connected to friends at school as she has a low self esteem and tends to keep somewhat isolated.
