Aromatic blend for October | Essential oil blending for the digestive system
In the autumn time, there is a plethora of seasonal tastes to enjoy – new rice, mushrooms, chestnuts, and swordfish among them.
If you have a good appetite and eat healthy food, your brain will be activated to increase secretion of the “happy hormone” serotonin.
Today, we will introduce essential oils and their blending methods that work alongside the digestive system to help your mental energy for the autumn season.
To improve the performance of the digestive system and heal stress-related gastrointestinal fatigue, we can blend the essential oils extracted from the following four types of plants.
Fennel, Cardamom, Caraway, Aniseed, Coriander, etc.
The seed is the root of the life force. Its rich energy increases grounding power.
Essential oils extracted from these seeds will help to improve digestive problems and increase your overall vitality.
Sweet orange, Mandarin, Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Bergamot etc.
Limonene, a characteristic scent component of citrus essential oil, activates our metabolism and helps us to eliminate waste products from our bodies in a healthy way.
The refreshing aroma of the fruit will lighten your mind and relieve tension.
