Today bought an eye cushion and found it immensely immensely relieving. Will write on that, tomorrow. Just now, to confess that though I have done an aromatherapist course and keep on adding lots of oils to my olfactory arsenal, have neglected chamomile for no rhyme or reason. Silly of me, because I found it soo soothing today. . Plus, when u buy Roman chamomile essential oil, the way I do, it costs a bomb. Then, to waste it.. inexplicable:(
It is one of the sweetest destressing oils .. it soothese the nerves, makes you happy, calms physical problems that arise due to nervous tension (ha, ha, mee mee, that is the unyogi yogi who always suffers from too much nerves:) It heals joint aches, stomach upsets, respiratory problems. Infections, and burns and to control "fretfulness, headaches, irritability, restlessness, insomnia).
It encourages patience, my teacher Dr Anjana Agarwal, writes in her manual, which I earned, btw while doing her fab course. (She is a very very giving teacher, that way, of that rare mould. I love her very much, for what she introduced me to, in oils, and how excited I was, as I learnt what all she shared. Aroma is a difficult topic -- not as fairy-airy as it is made out now, and misused and abused. It is a delicate subject which needs a lot of care and study, and the only book which covers all aspects of this topic is Dr Agarwal. I have several aroma books and keep browsing. But this one of hers, humbly spiral bound and xerox edition, says everything you want to know about essential oils, including dangers which are never ever covered in other books on this subject).
These are her contact details, if you need more.
