Blume … a little tube of calm… the best hand and body lotion for calming and relaxing daily stress whilst caring for dry skin.

Cells affect cells. Science says it only takes one cell anywhere in the body to control and affect every other cell.

Because cells react via our nervous system which control everything it makes sense to use aromatherapy or flower essences for relieving stress and anxiety.

Thus creating harmony and wellbeing within any one cell which has the ability to control all other cells.

The human cell is the basic structure within the body.  When you define cell properties you are in fact defining the properties of life.

(Elaine N Marieb Human Anatomy & Physiology).

The activity of one cell depends on the collective activity of all cells.

What are Flower and Plant Essences?

Flowers are energetic blueprints for wellbeing.

Plant and flower essences are powerful catalysts for correcting imbalances, relieving stress and anxiety.

As a result cellular memory patterns within the body, are effected by restoring wellbeing and inner harmony.

The body always wants to be in a balanced and healthy state.

Dr Edward Bach pioneered 38 flower remedies in the 1920’s which now used worldwide by naturopaths, and practitioners.

Bach was a scientist and bacteriologist who invested all his life’s earnings  into researching and developing flower essences for medical purposes.

Dr Bach has left us legacy.

How Flower Essences Work?

Flower essences are recognised for their electro-magnetic energy.

Because flower essences work by a resonance vibration and electrical pattern, they fit perfectly into the human fabric for a therapeutic outcome.

Therefore on a purely energetic level, flowers become the blueprint for rebalancing  physically and emotionally.

Plants have an enormous powerful catalystic ability releasing energy that helps keep the body and mind balanced and in a homeostasis of wellbeing.

The Magic of Essential Oils?

Essential oils are similar but also very different to flower essences.

Oil is extracted from flowers, leaves, wood, bark, seeds or peel.

Aromatic parts of the plants form a signature for their use.

The oil extracted from flowers, leaves, wood, or bark etc, is a complex mixture of  hydrocarbons and oxygenated compounds.

For example Lavender (Lavendula augustifolia) has a chemical constituent composition of a-pinene, limomene, cineole, cis-ocimene, trans-ocimene, octanone, camphor, linalool, linalyl aceatate, terpinene, lavendulyl acetate.

By the way oils are seventy times more powerful than the plant from which it is extracted.

Be careful about how much essential oil you should use.

It is vital to know what is the drop dosage is. Most oils are 3 or 4 drops per 25ml of carrier oil some are less.

It is important to follow strict guidelines when using essential oils.

Essential oils are highly penetrative through hair follicles of the skin.

The Olfactory

As soon as an a water soluble gaseous molecule is detected in the mucus of the nostrils, it make contact with olfactory cells.

A signal is sent to the brain via nerve cells, which enter the olfactory bulb to processes the information.

Then uses that information to action a metabolic response.

Olfactory has a couple of targets.

Which are…

First is the thalamus which transmits to the neocortex and other hypothalamic regions.

The neocortex is the cognitive part of the brain, where sensory processing occurs.

The neocortex of the olfactory allows us to perceive, scent and identify it.

Second it’s where the hypothalamic region forms part of the limbic system.

The brain’s oldest part is known as the rhinencephalon.

The limbic system consists of a complex system of pathways where signals activate smell related emotions and behaviours.

This emotional responsiveness concerns it’s self with the regulation of heart rate, blood pressure, digestive activity and varying levels of hormones.

Also the regulation of visceral functions and the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

The Nervous System.

The sympathetic nervous system is your fight or flight, raising heart rate, and blood pressure while decreasing digestive activity, to act quickly.

Some people have their sympathetic nervous system on continuous alert, due to far too much daily stress.

The parasympathetic nervous system calms down the sympathetic nervous system returning the body to normal.

The hypothalamus, is also responsible for the regulation of hormones through the control of the pituitary gland.

Thus given that smell has this effect it is considered that aromatherapy is one of the best tools for treating stress and anxiety when the sympathetic nervous system is on overload.

The Limbic system

Besides the limbic system influencing hormones and the autonomic nervous system, it also influences behaviour and emotions.

Essential oils evoke beneficial wellbeing, a positive happy outlook, and enhance creativity.

Therapeutic use of aromatic oils dates back to Egyptian times over 5000 years ago.

Stress and the Cortisol Effect

One of the body’s hormone’s is called cortisol is produced and secreted by the adrenal glands and has many functions.

The involvement of glucose metabolism, regulates blood pressure and insulin release for blood sugar maintenance.

Cortisol is responsible for the inflammatory responses of the body.

Cortisol is secreted into the bloodstream when we are stressed.

Thus nicknamed “the stress hormone” because it secretes higher levels during the fight and flight response.

Because the body goes on alert when something happens, cortisol is released and responsible for several stress-related changes in the body.

It’s important the body can return to normal as soon as possible after a stressful event, minor or otherwise.

Your skin

Our human skin houses tiny sensory receptors that provide information about our external environment?.

Like the temperature the pressure of objects and the presence of dangers.

Skin is only about as thick as a paper towel.

While protecting our entire body and internal organs, skin is closely connected and part of the nervous system.

Our skin receives very little respect, skin is pliable and tough enough to take a constant punishment from outside stimulus.

Because of the skins fat content it works as a shock absorber from objects and an insulator to stop heat and water loss.

Therefore it’s good to know Blume hand and body lotion works within the skins tiny sensory receptors aiding the body to release daily stress.
