The Beginnings of an Essential oil enthusiast (ok maybe bordering on obsessive)

These beautiful medicinal products of nature have been a constant in my life since around 1994. I first discovered the benefits of essential oils while studying massage and have used them ever since for their physical attributes, later also studying Aromatic Kinesiology where I discovered their less tangible properties although equally as effective. With the emergence of multiple essential oil companies hitting the market over the last ten or more years combined with a plethora of information floating about, I decided I needed to know the total ins and outs of what is safe and what is potentially unsafe. And so in 2018 I completed an Advanced Diploma in Aromatic Medicine.
This is really just to let you know that for the most part I have a reasonable idea of what I’m  doing :/

 I started the Nymea Range of products in 2011 with the intention of assisting people on an emotional level and in turn assisting the physical body. They contain a blend of essential oils, floral water and essences of liquid crystal and/or Australian Bush flowers.
Slowly I am adding other products to the range including pulse points oils, Baby Care range and salt scrubs.
I’m an advocate for the finest grade essential oils regardless of brand and use Organic when possible. Each oil has been carefully selected due to their personal attributes rather than by brand.

Anxiety – A blend of Cardamom, Myrrh, Sweet Orange, Neroli,  Lemon Balm extract, and custom made crystal and flower essence, Liquid crystal and Australian Bush flower essence.
I initially made this blend to help myself through anxiety, not the anxiety that comes just before a speech or job interview (although this will still help) but the anxiety that comes when you least expect it and your whole body reacts to a stimuli that isn’t techniqually real  but feels very real, your breathe shortens, heart races and dread fills your mind and your whole being. In my case my body needed to be retrained to not react to a stimuli that no longer existed.
A breathing technique that helps with anxiety is sometimes called Buddha belly, and requires you to breathe into your stomach. Place you hand over your stomach and breathe deeply, try and push your hand outwards with your tummy. Be aware if your shoulders lift up, this is a sign you’re breathing into the top of your diaphragm rather than your tummy. Whenever you feel anxiety rising spend a few minutes practising this method. 
This oil blend can be a tool to  assist you however you may need to also look at other techniques such as Yoga, exercise, massage, kinesiology, energy healing, meditation, counselling, diet, sitting in nature, etc. Everyone is unique so it may be something else that may make the difference for you.

Key words are calm, stabilizing, balancing, over thinking, worry, nervous exhaustion, burdened, weighed down, contentment, inner stillness, peace, laugh, reshape life patterns, emotional renewal, empowered choices, optimism, hope, positive opportunities, strength, appreciation, gratitude, grace, release worries, fear surrounding loss of control, physical pain for no apparent reason, nurtured emotional flow.
