Product Highlight: Trauma Oil

woman-in-pain
Trauma Oil has been used topically for 20+ years for relief of pain mostly related to injury. It is very popular with aromatherapists and herbalists. Trauma Oil is a blend of herbal infused oils, usually containing Calendula, St John’s Wort, and Arnica in organic extra virgin olive oil.

Here are the benefits of each herb in this wonderful blend:
Arnica - helpful for pain, inflammation, healing of tissues
St John’s Wort - helpful for all types of nerve pain and sharp trauma to the body
Calendula - skin healing and nourishing, anti-inflammatory

We started our aromatherapy journey using the above combination. Later we found a different variation made by one of our favorite companies, Herbal Vitality (for licensed practitioners only). This company uses German Chamomile instead of Calendula in their Trauma Oil.

Sierra's "Can't Do Withouts"

whats-your-fave
As my price list grows and grows, I thought that a quick critique of my own products would help! What do I use every day? What are my "would never live withouts"? Even though I can make anything I want, what do I use regularly?

1. My Herbal Infused Toner - I always have two bottles going so I never run out. I vary the herbs that I infuse to make the toner. I use more lubricating and skin nourishing herbs during the dry winter months. In the summer, I still use skin nourishing herbs but I always add peppermint herb to my mix for the refreshing, cooling effects that it brings. After washing my face with my favorite facial cleanser (varies), I use the toner generously on my face. At night before putting my night clothes on, I take a wet wash cloth and do a water sponge bath. I then follow with multiple generous sprays of toner on my entire body. It leaves me going to bed feeling refreshed, relaxed and with softer skin. I never go any part of the day without it.

Product Highlight: I Feel Better Balm - Peace

trees-with-light-beams-sm
The I Feel Better Balm just got better. I am not sure how many of you knew that I made one original version and then reformulated it. I used the first one daily from the start. I loved it! When I made the second reformulated one, I kept one for myself to try. I used both of these versions of the balm on a daily basis, alternating between the two. After a few months, I decided that I liked how I felt on the original recipe rather than the re-formulation. But I felt that I could make the original even better.

A few days ago I completed reformulating a third version containing Argarwood (Aquilaria crassna). Wow! My experience of the new one is amazing! This blend is deeply nourishing and uplifting, encourages emotional healing on all levels, supports the healing of old wounds, and provides clarity and tranquility. Due to the well balanced properties of this blend, any uncomfortable feelings that might come up in the healing process will be transient and pass quickly.
