Sunspirit Aromatherapy gift pack giveaway (CLOSED)

Need a easy way to relax? Sunspirit have a range of essential oils, herbal ointments and massage oils that naturally care for your health and wellbeing and are available in pharmacies and health shops in Australia and internationally.

What is aromatherapy? Aromatherapy uses the essential oils extracted from aromatic plants to restore or enhance health, beauty and well-being. When you inhale a fragrance, its molecules stimulate the olfactory nerve (your sense of smell) which activates the limbic system (the emotional part of your brain). When the limbic system receives signals from the olfactory nerves, it triggers an emotional, physiological and endocrine (hormone) response. This is how essential oils make you feel a certain way. Studies with brain wave frequency have shown that smelling lavender increases alpha waves in the back of the head, which are associated with relaxation. While Jasmine increases beta waves in the front of the head, which creates a more alert state.

There are lots of ways to use essential oils for aromatherapy such as:

Massage: Essential oils can be used topically on the skin to provide a therapeutic massage when combined with carrier oils like almond or grape seed (essential oils should not be put directly onto the skin without being diluted). Because essential oils have very small molecules they absorb easily into the skin and enter your lymphatic system and circulate into the blood stream to reduce inflammation, fix imbalances, increase blood circulation and eliminate toxins.

Aromatherapy bath: Another way to use essential oils is to have a pampering aromatherapy bath to make use of the oils therapeutic benefits. If you want to lift your mood just add 5-10 drops of Jasmine oil or use Lavender oil to boost your immunity and regenerate your skin for a youthful glow.

Oil burner: Another popular way to use essential oils is to add them to an oil burner to fragrance the home and let the healing vapours work to improve your mood, reduce stress, increase energy and help you relax and fall asleep more easily. Add 5 drops of Sunspirit’s Clary Sage to an oil burner to help relieve stress. To relieve the symptoms of a cold, flu or sore throat add 5 drops to an oil burner where the lively citrus smell will infuse in the air.

Pregnant women, people with severe asthma, and people with a history of allergies should avoid all essential oils. You can check out more of the Sunspirit range at their website http://www.sunspirit.com.au/

My favourite way to relax is to run a hot bubble bath, light some candles and my oil burner, grab a glass of wine and some dark chocolate, and enjoy!

Thank you for holding such an awesome giveaway! To relax I have an app on my ipod - it plays different tracks of rains and storms. I curl up in bed with a good book and soon I fall asleep. Weird but totally true! :) Good luck everyone x

Lying on the deck of a yacht, just floating and listening to the sea... or if I can't get it there, a float tank for an hour de-stresses lifetimes... LOL

My favourite way to relax is to go for a swim, especially at the beach. I grew up on the beach, so it has a flaming affect on me. I don;t get to do it much as the beach has the opposite affect on my husband.

Otherwise I like to pamper myself - nice bath, scented candles, facial, mani and pedi.

I like your FB page. :)

My ideal way would be a horse back ride along the beach, sun on my shoulders, then on to a tropical rainforest where I'd absorb the scents and sights of nature. And to cool off, a waterfall shower! THAT would be my ideal way, though highly unlikely! Though I will settle for a comfy arm chair, a good book, and Michael Buble in the background!

To totally relax I dim the lights and open the doors and windows to let the calming breeze of the day circulate around me. I always have fresh flowers around my house as these are both visually relaxing, and attractive. Then I light some aromatheraphy candles and burn some essential oil before collapsing into my favourite chair and drifting off with a nice warm "cuppa" in my hands. Totally magical!

I already follow you on Google +1, facebook and twitter!
