Essential oils for Winter Wellness

Essential Oils for Winter Wellness can make a significant contribution to our feelings of wellbeing both physical and mental.

At this time of year conifer oils really come into their own, providing a selection of excellent oils for upper respiratory support. An added bonus is that they also bring the aroma of the outdoors into the house at a time of year when the weather and Lockdown rules may keep us inside. From an energetics perspective, essential oils that are distilled from leaves are particularly appropriate for combating respiratory tract infections

Here are a selection I personally like to use as part of my winter wellness arsenal. Not only do they help us breathe more easily but they can help us find that place to take a breath when the winter blues descend.

 

 

Rosalina (Melaeuca ericifolia) has a pleasing floral scent which is relaxing and pleasant .It is wonderful for upper respiratory tract congestions and infections, a gentle expectorant with good anti-infectious properties. Rosalina’s calming and relaxing properties and ability to induce sleep make it a great bedtime companion.

Black Spruce (Picea mariana)

Black Spruce essential oil is steam distilled from the needles, which provide respiration for the whole tree. No wonder it allows us to feel more connected to the earth and to the breath. Its mildly expectorant and antitussive properties make it a great remedy for upper respiratory tract infections. It has a fresh, sweet coniferous scent with a fruity undertone and a calming yet uplifting effect.

Fragonia (Agonis fragrans)

I am a big fan of this particular oil it is a fabulous multi tasker, all bound up in a beautiful scent with a hint of citrus. It is a very versatile and effective all-rounder. Fragonia provides excellent emotional support. Its powerful anti-microbial and expectorant actions make it an excellent oil for combating respiratory tract infections and this combined with its ability to stimulate the body’s immune system make it perfect for promoting winter wellness.

Using these three Essential Oils for Winter Wellness will ensure it truly is a season of comfort and joy.
