Essential oils for summer

In Chinese Medicine, the season of Summer represents the heart. It is a time of socializing, celebration and fun. However, since times have felt more restrictive lately, we find that many of our patients are experiencing anxiety, agitation, restlessness and low spirits.Here are our favorite essentials oils to lift your mood.

🌱Neroli: This oil lifts the mood. It clears the heart of palpitations, shock and insomnia.

🌱Orange: This oil is an anti-depressant. It’s a happy, inviting oil that calms the heart.

🌱Rose: This oil represents the heart. It’s all about liberation, enjoying the moment and being present.

🌱Sandalwood: This oil settles the mind. It’s great for calming anxiety, restlessness, and is an ally for moments of panic.

Here are our favorite, safe methods for enjoying essential oils:

🤲🏾 Rub 2-3 drops in your palms and inhale. Continue inhaling for 5-10 minutes.

🤲🏾 Rub 1-2 drops on your chest and step into the shower for an instant oil diffusion.

🤲🏾 Place a few drops into your favorite essential oil diffuser while you clean, cook, work, or study.
