Body Oiling is a simple, but profoundly effective way to drop the nervous system into a state of immediate relaxation.
With Lavender, Chamomile & Calendula infused in olive oil these relaxing and mildly sedative nervines (Lavender + Chamomile) are known to calm the nervous system and the digestive tract, soothe irritated skin and membranes.
Lavender relaxes redness and cools heat. It can be used to improve the appearance of scars, even out skin tone, cleanse acne prone skin, and balance the skin’s sebum levels.
Calendula, equally soothing and gentle, yet abundant with the sun energy can help by moving stagnant lymphs under the arm pit, an area we so easily overlooked... Traditional uses find that scars and puffiness are all soothed with calendula, too.
The benefits of such heartwarming oiling practice are numerous, here are a few:
more relaxed muscles
chilled out children & babies
increased immunity & lymphatic health
softer, healthier skin
better movement and less stiffness in the joints
feeling more centered
increased energy and stamina
deeper self knowledge and greater self love
I specially love using the oil on my children before bedtime, in fact they ask me when I don't remember. Other uses include: soothe itchy healing wounds, mild skin conditions, sun burn... the list goes on. :) One of my favorite self care rituals.
Simply massage a few drops into the affected area and enjoy.
