As a female I am naturally drawn to the floral essential oils more than any other scent. I believe that this particular aroma brings to mind a feminine energy and one that can be useful for both men and women. We are all made up of both yin (feminine) and yang (masculine) vibrations. When these two sides become out of balance our bodies can become tense, stressed, fatigued and down right exhausted. It is important to partake in activities that involve both the masculine and the feminine like kickboxing and restorative yoga respectively. The same goes for our self care routine. It is incredibly healing to apply essential oils from both sides of the spectrum; this helps remind our bodies to maintain homeostasis. Men and women alike can apply Frankincense for a yang boost. When I am looking for a bit of the feminine I reach for a potent combination of Lavender and Geranium. The incredibly gentle Lavender plant can calm the harshest of burns and wildest of children. Geranium is known to aid the heart in healing and can do wonders for the skin. Together these oils create a safe space where the body and mind have time to unwind, release and heal. Apply a drop of Lavender and Geranium essential oil to the face every morning for an incredibly powerful anti-aging routine. These oils both help to attack problem areas brought on by hormonal imbalance or environmental toxins. Both Lavender and Geranium chase away pessimistic thoughts and worries quite quickly. Try a drop of each on the temples and across the forehead before turning in for the night. If you’re seeking to lighten things up a bit come by the spa for a relaxing Swedish massage featuring these two beautifully scented essential oils. It may be just what you need to get this spring season started off right!
