My Rosemary Story

Posted: October 18, 2010 by Cristina Proano-Carrion

My busy life as an aromatherapist, business owner, wife and mother demands long hours of work and high levels of energy. For me, every minute counts and I need to keep myself alert and focused every waking hour of the day.

Rosemary essential oil is always the first choice to keep me going.  It promotes the much-needed mental clarity and helps me focus even in stressful situations. Just a whiff of Rosemary clears my head and channels the flow of my thoughts. When I created Energia Essential Oil Blend and Adrenal Support Body Oil, I thought about people like me – people who need to stay alert, awake and focused to keep up with a demanding lifestyle.  I wanted a combination of oils that could not only energize and motivate, but also work as a tonic for the adrenal glands. After taking a shower, I pour a teaspoon of Adrenal Support Body Oil onto my palm and massage it across my back (on the area corresponding to the kidneys). This is my way of saying “thank you” to my adrenals for all the hard work they do for me during the day. I always carry a bottle of the Energia Blend in my purse. 5 drops of it in an aromatherapy diffuser improves my concentration at work and direct inhalation keeps me alert and awake while driving long distances to meet my clients. Energia Blend contains essential oils of Rosemary and Pine that are said to stimulate the cortex of the suprarenal gland [1]. According to author Gabriel Mojay, Rosemary can “renew enthusiasm and bolster self-confidence” [2] and was an age-old remedy for apathy and gloom. Rosemary also helps boost blood circulation and lymphatic drainage which makes it effective for systemic detoxification. Massaging your entire body with Aromandina’s Detoxing Body Oil releases all toxins and keeps you feeling fresh and energized. So the next time you need a little help with managing your thoughts or give an extra boost to your day, try a whiff of Rosemary. Place a few drops on a tissue and inhale the aroma deeply through your nose. Pause. Inhale again and allow the bright, energizing properties of rosemary to penetrate deep. What’s your Rosemary Story?
