Smell good Saturday!

It is hard to mom when you have a killer headache.

So this morning I am diffusing to kill the headache while making my house smell amazing. Don’t believe me? See the research below!

The lavender in elevation and the peppermint are the two oils that are proven to be effective in treating headaches according to these articles.

Add some lime to kill bacteria and germs in the air for our final touch!

Properties of Lime: Antibacterial, antiseptic, antiviral, restorative

Here is also a great piece of research that demonstrates the effectiveness of Aromatherapy which an individual oil break down. The conclusion being ” we can conclude that aromatherapy is natural and noninvasive gift of nature for humans. It’s not only the disease symptoms which are eradicated but the whole body is rejuvenated by the use of aroma. Aromatherapy regulates the physiological, spiritual and psychological upliftment for the new phase of life. This therapy is not only preventive but also can be used in the acute and chronic stages of disease. Pharmaceutical industries are trying for environmental friendly, alternative and natural medicine for disease associated with pathogens and metabolism. There may be a possibility of enhancing the rate of reaction and bioavailability of drugs from the use of these essential oils.”

Now that they are diffusing my headache is almost gone and I can enjoy my kids and all their antics!

I will also be sure to drink a lot of water today as I am probably dehydrated from a day of the stomach bug shared with love from my youngest. Gotta love them! Happy Saturday!
