Miranda’s Aromatherapy Body Washes

Aromatherapy is the use of pure plant extracts known as essential oils to assist in the physical and psychological wellbeing of the body, mind and spirit. It has many benefits and is something I truly believe in and love practising in my day-to-day life.

I have developed three limited edition aromatherapy body washes that use the very best blends of certified organic essential oils. Each body wash has been been specifically formulated to soothe, uplift and harmonise. They all use nurturing ingredients that are gentle and won’t irritate or dry your skin.

The Balancing Body Wash uses pure organic Geranium, Rose, Orange and Ylang Ylang essential oils to really harmonise and balance your mood. It smells beautiful and it is a great everyday wash, day and night, in the bath or the shower.

The Calming Body Wash uses Lavender, Chamomile and Bergamot essential oils to soothe and relax your body and mind. It is perfect to use at night to assist in calming your senses and helps you unwind before bed to encourage a deep restful night’s sleep.

The Energising Body Wash uses Lemongrass, Bergamot, Orange and Mandarin essential oils, it helps to motivate and uplift your senses. I love using it in the morning as it makes me feel energised and revitalised, ready for the day ahead!

My tip is to take the time to enjoy all of the aromatherapy benefits when using the body washes (or one of the KORA Organics Mists). Close your eyes and take three deep inhalations, count to ten as you exhale and think of a positive affirmation.

Enjoy!

Much love,

Avocado oil is deeply absorbed by the skin, making it an ideal moisturizer and skin care ingredient. It relieves dry, itchy skin, and increases the production of collagen, which helps keep the skin plump and decreases the effects of ageing. It is also useful in the treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.

Healing Energy

Healing Energy

You may have read in some press articles that when I’m asked what’s in my handbag, along with my KORA Organics mist, lip balm, hand cream, phone, wallet and affirmation cards, I often mention a crystal wand or a Rose Quartz crystal.

My crystal wand is incredibly special to me, and is one of my most cherished items. It’s made of Clear Quartz and is studded with Rose Quartz. Clear Quartz is a great stone for gathering, directing and transmitting energy… it can also transform negative energy into positive energy, and Rose Quartz is a wonderful stone to heal and protect the heart, balance emotions, release stress and tension, and encourage love and self-esteem.

Crystals can be used in many different methods of healing. In addition to using on a specific area of the body, or on Chakras points to locate blockages to cleanse and heal them, they can also be used in massage.

Massaging the body with a crystal helps to release tension from the body, while at the same time the stone’s healing energy is transferred to the body. I hold my crystal during meditation, prayer, deep belly breathing, and use it to infuse my Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil with positive vibrations prior to a massage. I also sleep with it near by so I’m constantly receiving its special healing energies.

This month we are giving you a gift of a heart-shaped Rose Quartz crystal with any purchase of our Rose products (Balancing Rose Mist, Luxurious Rosehip Oil or Luxurious Rosehip Body Oil). Carry it with you to benefit from its positive energies and high vibration of love.

Enjoy,

Fun Fact: Green Tea

Fun Fact: Green Tea

Emperor Shen Nung, who ruled over China 5000 years ago was a stickler for hygiene, and ordered that all water in the palace must be boiled. When his men were boiling water one day, leaves from a nearby bush fell into the water – and the first cup of tea was brewed. Today, tea is the second-most consumed beverage in the world after water, with literally thousands of blends in existence. Did you know many of KORA Organics’ products, including our Foaming Cleanser, Enriched Body Lotion and Purifying Day & Night Cream, all contain Green Tea?

The Heart-Healing Power of Rose Quartz

The Heart-Healing Power of Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is often called the “Love Stone,” because it inspires the love of beauty, in self and others as well as nature. Pink Rose Quartz is the most important crystal of the heart and the Heart Chakra, teaching the true essence of love, purifying and opening the heart at all levels. It’s a stone for every type of love; self love, family, platonic, romantic and unconditional love.

In the spiritual realm, Rose Quartz vibrations can penetrate down to the cellular level and reprogram cells for joy and longevity rather than despair and death. It encourages the dissolution of anger and resentment and brings the Light of healing into your life.

Rose Quartz has emotional healing energy. The soft pink emanations comfort and heal any wounds the heart has suffered, penetrating the inner chambers of the Heart Chakra where emotional experiences are recorded and stored. It dissolves the sorrows, worries, fears and resentments suppressing the heart’s ability to give and receive love, and replaces it with healing, comfort and inner nourishment. A deep sense of personal fulfillment and energy forms a new foundation where inner peace and contentment can become a personal reality.

For those who long for more Rose Quartz in their lives, this beautiful vibration of self-love is infused into every KORA Organics product through our own infusion of Rose Quartz Crystal Energised Water. Click here for one of our favorite rose-infused products.

The Power of Pink

The Application of Essential Oils, Part 2

The Application of Essential Oils, Part 2

Continuing our discussion on essential oil application, so what do they have to do with the demands of modern living; when we continue to expect more of ourselves; others/relationships and our peers/careers than ever before? How can these catalysts of change help us when we continue to feel time poor; as we strive to excel at home, work and play (because we want it all), when we push ourselves to meet deadlines, fulfill even the most unrealistic goals; and… we want to make money, have fun, be successful, be loved, nurtured and on and on our wish list goes.

Well, maybe they can help us make the small and effective changes to our body and mind by simply deploying them in our everyday skin and body care regimes. All it takes is ‘choice’ and ‘action’.

It can be as simple as using skin and body care products that contain certified organic essential oils, so that when you moisturize your skin your are addressing the state of your skin and body as they are absorbed into the underlying tissue and organs.

Choose to incorporate them into your daily self pampering rituals; such as taking a bath, shower (make both an aromatic experience), use them to vaporize into your home, board room or hotel suite; to help influence the way you feel, think and act. Continue to employ self empowering, proactive measures when addressing your health and wellness. The Shimizu corporation in Japan used essential oil of peppermint in the work place and found that it increased productivity and reduced work error by 50%.

Above all remain respectful of such potent plant extracts; they are 70 times more potent than the plant or herb they are extracted from.

Always follow the directions of use and recommended dosage level for pregnant women, adults, children and infants so that you can confidently and safely explore so many other methods of use. There are so many ways to care for yourselves and others and the essential oils do all the work for you. Who would have thought that smelling an essential oil/blend when applying your moisturizer could also affect the way you feel and think in that moment?

Other methods of use include; vaporization, compressing, aromatic showers, sitz baths, hand and foot baths, hair rinses, inhalations, perfumes and room sprays.

In Summary; essential oils can help us maintain a healthier way of living. They generally improve our vitality and increase our confidence and self-esteem. All these elements form the basis of good health. Essential oils are supporting catalysts for change, they are not ‘cure alls’, they too require our support to help us help ourselves; remaining vigilant with our diet, exercise and healthy habits will go a long way to achieve a well balanced life. Choosing certified organic where possible especially with regards our essential oil.

I invite you to make the changes you desire as you embrace the wonderful world of Aromatherapy… Enjoy!
