Earlier this month I realized a lot extra about it, in Madeleine Kerkhof’s CO2s for Medical CO2 Extracts in Aromatherapy, and albeit was a bit involved that the three-day course can be a repeat of what I had already realized. I used to be SO mistaken, and as time permits I might be updating our product descriptions with new info and sharing what I’ve realized right here.
Aromatherapy course, in Washington D.C. Now, I’ve (and make out there) Madeleine’s e book,
However let’s begin with Buddha Wooden. Aromatically, it is a pretty wooden oil, deeper and a bit darker than most Sandalwoods. A should for any wooden lover. And naturally there may be that bedbug factor.
Emotional makes use of:
Did I ever dream that Buddha Wooden can be helpful emotionally? No!
Madeleine taught us that Buddha Wooden (Ermephila mitchelli) is beneficial for:
- Stress, tensions, frustration, anger, agitation, hyperactivity and common emotions of restlessness
- Sleep Points
- Meditation and mindfulness or leisure workouts
- Existential questions and transitions
She particularly harassed its use for transitions, and for sleep points. (I made a word to attempt with Petitgrain Bigarade which is among the oils I exploit when my thoughts is racing and never letting me sleep.)
She additionally talked about Copaiba Balsam important oil as an alternative or complement for Buddha Wooden for these points, and for household trauma.
Later at school she talked about that Buddha Wooden CO2 is considered one of her favourite oils for stress and for sleep issues. (I might assume these brought on by stress!)
Skincare makes use of:
Madeleine taught us that Buddha Wooden may be very helpful for topical wound care, maybe as an alternative choice to Myrrh, with related actions. She makes use of it for:
- irritated pores and skin, irritation, mattress sores
- chapped tough and cracked pores and skin, scars and burns
- Diaper Rash and moisture lesions
- and… again to the place I began… as an insect repellant!
Later at school she talked about Buddha Wooden CO2 as considered one of her favourite components to blends for purple, irritated pores and skin, and for wounds and scars.
At one time throughout the class, Madeleine divided us into groups, and paired us with folks from throughout the room, not the buddies we had been sitting with. We had been to offer our companion a difficulty that we had been combating, and, with the CO2s out there, they had been to create an inhaler or a topical software.
Mine was my tendency to get up after sleeping maybe 3 hours, and have my thoughts racing with tomorrow and subsequent week’s “to do lists.” I discover Petitgrain Bigarade, from Italy, splendidly useful for that, however do not wish to depend on the identical oil on a regular basis.
My “Lab Companion” was Ken Miller, somebody I’ve met and sat at school with a number of instances, however have by no means labored immediately with. Ken created a “Again to Sleep” inhaler for me, which is totally pretty, and *very* efficient:
Again to Sleep
3 drops Candy Marjoram CO2 (I do know that’s great for sleep points)
3 drops Myrrh CO2 (that was a shock, and never one I might have reached for)
3 drops Buddha Wooden CO2 (see above… stress, stress)
1 drop LemonBalm CO2 Complete, which, sadly, no producer I belief is producing any extra. In the event that they do, after all we are going to order some. Within the meantime, I feel a single drop of Melissa distilled, 10% dilution can be substitute. The CO2 appears a lot milder and softer than the distilled oil, and I feel a complete drop of distilled Melissa would overwhelm the opposite oils within the mix.
(Ken is a properly skilled clinician who does distant consultations. Chances are you’ll attain him at Complete Aromatherapies.)
