A previous customer reached out to us inquiring about having a custom blended essential oil created for a friend of hers who had a 6-month-old infant. The new Mom was tired, a feeling a bit gloomy and overwhelmed. Our customer thought this would be a perfect Mother's Day gift for a new mom and we couldn't haveåÊagreed more!
Similar to another one of our custom blends, (TheåÊ"AmyH"), we used similar essential oils but with slightly different ratios and theåÊaddition of a couple of oils.
In addition to creating the new blend for the new Mom, our customer asked if she could name the oil to make the gift even more special and our answer was of course! åÊ
The Sweet Melissa was born, an uplifting Essential Oil Blend to apply topically or to diffuse. åÊAnd to make it even a bit more fun and being that So Good Mojo Co loves music, we added a touch of the Allman Brothers to the vibe. åÊHappy Mother's Day, Melissa!
We now carry The Sweet Melissa as a stock item.
For those who are interested in the effects of aromatherapy, especially with citrus fruits, please read on...
Many studies have been conducted on the effects of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy.
A clip from an article from Prevention Magazine (please see link) is noted below....
‰ÛÏThe scent of fresh fruit can do amazing things,‰ says Barbara Thomley, lead coordinator for the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at the Mayo Clinic. ‰ÛÏFrom what we've seen with our patients, even a quick smell can make a significant difference.‰
And orange isn't the only citrus scent that can be an aromatic asset for your health. Based on the Mayo Clinic's experience using aromatherapy with patients, Thomley says that citrus aromas are often useful in curbing stress and anxiety as well as helping with digestion and nausea.
‰ÛÏWith any citrus smell, lessened anxiety always seems to emerge as a benefit,‰ she says. But different people respond to different aromas, which is why Thomley suggests experimenting with various scents. ‰ÛÏIf you like the smell, and it has positive connotations for you, you'll experience the most benefit,‰ she says.
Grapefruit: Anecdotal evidence suggests that grapefruit aromas can curb depression and enhance memory, says Thomley. Or try taking a whiff before meals to control your appetite. Research from Japan's Osaka University shows that the scent of grapefruit boosts metabolism and reduces food cravings.
Lemon: Prepping for a major meeting? Enhance your performance and your attitude by rubbing lemon balm inside your wrist. The mild lemon scent ‰ÛÏsends you to a positive place,‰ says Thomley. In fact, a study at the UK's Northumbria University found that exposure to lemon balm can improve cognitive performance and mood.
Mandarin: At the Mayo Clinic, massage therapists and acupuncturists augment therapies with the gentle scent of mandarin essential oil. Patients have reported reduced stress, better digestion, and less nausea, says Thomley.
