Aromatic Dressing has been one of the most simple and beneficial routines I have added to my daily routine. There have been a HUGE number of people I have introduced to this form of self care who have agreed that it has made such a dramatic difference to their lives.
What is Aromatic Dressing?
For those into using essential oils, aromatic dressing is the process of daily applying oils to your skin. It can not only make you smell AMAZING (and I constantly receive compliments on how lovely I smell!) but it can also enhance your daily life. It can help you feel in touch with yourself and in harmony with the flow of life.
Aromatic Dressing can be something you do when you wake up in the morning (or anytime through the day), like when you get dressed. Put a natural perfume on (You will no longer need those toxic perfumes that are causing issues for your health!) but let’s take it further than that.
I want to encourage and inspire you to tap into your intuition and listen to your body and what it is telling you it needs. Our body can direct us to what it needs for physical and emotional support.
How do you Aromatically Dress?
Choose a selection of oils with intent for their physical or emotional benefits, or use your intuition and select whichever oils you are drawn to.
Dilute your chosen oils with a carrier of choice in a small bowl or in your hand using Fractionated Coconut Oil or Unscented Hand and Body Lotion. After a shower or bath, begin from the bottom of your legs in big circular motions working your way up your body towards your heart. Add more of your mixture to your hands as you move over your body, while saying positive affirmations and nice things about yourself. Finish by applying to the ends of your hair, bottom of your feet and take a moment to cup your hands over your nose and mouth and inhale.
