Qu’est-ce qu’un mantra chanté?

Des recherches ont démontré que nous avons entre 45 000 et 51 000 pensées par jour. Cela représente environ 150 à 300 pensées par moment. Des recherches ont également démontré que pour la plupart des individus, 80 % de ces pensées sont nuisibles.

Vous m’avez entendu parler d’affirmations et de méditation trés souvent. C’est si important de changer notre mentalité si nous voulons apporter des changements dans notre vie. Les affirmations vous rendent conscient de vos pensées, c’est affirmer quelque chose de positif. L’utilisation d’affirmations favorables vous permet de reprendre le contrôle de votre esprit et des informations qu’il reçoit.

Si vous souhaitez améliorer votre vie, il est temps de décider de penser positivement.

Aujourd’hui, je veux vous parler des mantras que je pratique de temps en temps. C’est une autre façon de vous élever dans un état méditatif et d’activer vos centres d’énergie. Je vous encourage à essayer de chanter pendant votre méditation pour vous engager avec votre corps, votre esprit, votre âme et votre énergie.

Que signifie mantra ?

Les mantras, chants ou sons de syllabes sont un moyen puissant qui peut aider à activer les chakras de votre corps. “Man” signifie esprit et “tra” signifie à travers, donc un mantra est quelque chose qui traverse votre cerveau de manière répétée pour contrôler vos pensées par la méditation.

Chanter un mantra n’est pas la même chose que chanter une chanson. Vous n’avez pas besoin d’être parfait, vous devez simplement vouloir ouvrir votre cœur dans la paix méditative et laisser votre esprit s’exprimer. Il existe deux langues pour les chants chantés dans la tradition indienne :

le sanskrit et le gurmukhi.

Le sanskrit est la langue des chants hindous et est utilisé par la plupart des traditions yogiques, à l’exception du Kundalini Yoga, qui est tiré de la tradition sikh et est chanté en langue gurmukhi.

Comment choisir un mantra :

Le choix d’un mantra est une étape importante. Pensez à vos raisons de chanter un mantra. Les gens chantent pour atteindre l’amour-propre, la connexion avec d’autres personnes, avoir de meilleures relations, la prospérité, de meilleures opportunités d’emploi, de bonnes affaires, ou pour se connecter avec leur vrai soi.

Le fait de chanter peut vous aider à atteindre ces objectifs car cela vous met dans la bonne vibration et le bon état d’esprit. Vous pourrez écouter votre intuition et vous fier à votre instinct.

Vous pouvez choisir parmi des centaines de mantras. Choisissez une intention claire et choisissez un mantra qui vous aidera à obtenir ce que vous voulez. Écoutez quelques mantras différents et notez ce que vous ressentez lorsque vous les écoutez. Beaucoup sont disponibles sur YouTube, ce qui vous permet de choisir celui qui vous convient le mieux et avec lequel vous vous sentez à l’aise. Lorsque vous trouverez un mantra qui vous convient, vous vous sentirez à l’aise. Votre synchronisation avec un mantra se fait à un niveau vibratoire.

Vous pouvez choisir de travailler sur un seul son/mantra comme AUM par session, ou en chantant des phrases complètes ou avec une série de mantras pour activer vos chakras comme les Bija Mantras qui sont considérés comme des « vibrations » de la conscience primordiale créatrice.

Le chant du mantra doit être fait pendant la méditation, les yeux fermés, assis confortablement et droit. Vous pouvez chanter les mantras plusieurs fois car la répétition peut vous aider à accéder à un état méditatif.

Les avantages du chant AUM/OM comprennent la connexion avec le cosmos par l’éveil spirituel. Il vous aide à vous connecter avec votre véritable essence. Lorsque vous chantez Om, vous invoquez tout ce que vous êtes au niveau le plus profond.

Bija (prononcé BEEJ) signifie “semence” parce qu’elles ont un pouvoir cosmique incroyable pour débloquer la croissance et la guérison. Les mantras Bija sont des sons d’une syllabe qui sont destinés à activer les chakras à travers tout le corps. Emettez le son de chaque Mantras Bija sur l’emplacement des chakras equivalents. Ou vous pouvez aussi vous concentrez que sur une partie de votre corps. Au sommet, sentez votre énergie s’élever vers le haut, au-delà de l’univers. Restez ici en silence aussi longtemps que vous vous sentez à l’aise. Ensuite, ramenez lentement votre attention sur chaque emplacement : couronne, troisième œil, gorge, cœur, plexus solaire, sacré et racine. Faites descendre votre énergie par vos hanches et/ou vos pieds. Ouvrez lentement les yeux lorsque vous êtes prêt à revenir dans la pièce.

Avantages des mantras chantés :

Les chants de mantra sont simplement un moyen d’invoquer les vibrations sonores dans votre gorge pour exploiter le pouvoir de guérison de cette énergie et favoriser une croissance transformatrice. Chaque mantra a sa propre fréquence vibratoire et un pouvoir de guérison différent qui canalise l’énergie cosmique dans notre corps et génère une incroyable énergie de guérison. Vous pouvez utiliser les mantras pour amener l’amour, le succès, la santé, la paix, la prospérité ou pour vous connecter à vous-même.

La répétition de ces mots à haute voix a un effet particulier sur le corps. Lorsque vous prononcez le mantra, votre langue heurte les points méridiens du haut du palais de la bouche, ce qui a un impact sur les énergies qui vont vers d’autres glandes comme l’hypothalamus, la glande pinéale et l’hypophyse.

En éveillant ces points méridiens, vous produisez un effet de relaxation et un état de conscience modifié.
Lorsque vous commencez, ne vous inquiétez pas pour votre prononciation, cela viendra avec le temps.

Chaque matin, je fais ce chant à Shiva : Karpur Gauram Karunavataram, Sansara Saram Bhujagendra Haram |
Sada Vasantam Hridayaaravinde, Bhavam Bhavani Sahitam Namami || ( Il bénit les personnes avec une bonne santé, la richesse et une vie paisible.) et je vous dis que ma prononciation est plutôt un désastre, mais c’est l’intention qui compte.

La chose la plus cruciale dans le chant est votre cœur. Ouvrez-le bien.
Chevauchez le courant sonore comme une vague. Sentez le divin infini ici, maintenant, et en vous.

Namaste ❤

PS : C’est une des musiques que j’aime écouter en travaillant. Elle m’apporte la paix !

What is Mantra Chanting?

Research has demonstrated that we have between 45,000 and 51,000 thoughts a day. That’s about 150 to 300 thoughts a moment. Research has likewise demonstrated that for most individuals 80% of those thoughts are damaging.

You heard me talking about affirmations and meditation, over and over again. How important it is to change our mindset if we want to make some changes in our lives. Affirmations make you conscious of your thoughts. To affirm means to state something positively. Affirmations are statements where you assert that what you wish to be real is real. Utilizing favorable affirmations gives you back command of your mind and the information it gets.

If you wish to enhance your life, it’s time to decide to think positively.

Today I want to talk about Mantra chanting that I practice from time to time. It is another way to elevate yourself in a meditative state and activate your energy centers. I encourage you to try chanting during your meditation to engage with your body, mind, soul, and energy.

What does Mantra means?

Mantra, chants or syllable sounds is a powerful way that may help to activate your chakras in your body. “Man” means mind and “tra” means across, so a mantra is something that’s repeatedly crossing your brain to control your thoughts for meditation.

Mantra chanting isn’t the same thing as singing. You don’t have to be perfect, you simply have to want to open your heart in meditative peace and let your spirit spill out. There are 2 languages for chants sung in the Indian tradition:

Sanskrit and Gurmukhi.

Sanskrit is the language of Hindu chanting and is utilized by most yogic traditions except Kundalini Yoga, which is taken from
the Sikh tradition and has chanting sung in the Gurmukhi language.

How to choose a mantra:

Choosing a mantra is an important step. Think of your reasons to chant a mantra. People chant to achieve self-love, connection with other people, better relationships, prosperity, better job opportunities, good business deals, or to connect with their true self.

Chanting can help you achieve these things because it sets you in the right vibration and the right frame of mind. You will be able to listen to your intuition and trust your instincts.

You can choose from hundreds of mantras. Set a clear intention and choose a mantra that will help you get what you want. Listen to a few different mantras and note how you feel when you listen to them. Many are available on YouTube so you can choose which one you can relate and feel comfortable with. When you find a mantra that resonates with you, it will feel right. Your synchronicity with a mantra happens on a vibrational level.

You can choose to work on one single sound/mantra like AUM per session, full sentences mantra chanting or with a series of mantra to activate your chakras like the Bija Mantras, that are ancient tools that tap into energy field that exists in this entire universe

The mantra chanting should be done during meditation with eyes closed, sitting comfortably and straight. You may chant mantras several time as repetition can help you access a meditative state.

The AUM/OM chanting benefits include connection with the cosmos through spiritual awakening. It helps you to connect with your true essence. When you chant Om, you invoke all that you are on the deepest level.

Bija (pronounced BEEJ) means “seed” because they have incredible, cosmic power to unlock growth and healing. The Bija Mantras are one syllable sounds that are meant to activate the chakras along the center line of the body. Chant the bija mantras one at a time while bringing your attention to each chakra location as you go through the bija mantras. At the crown, feel your energy rise up upwards beyond to the universe. Stay here in silence for as long as you feel comfortable. Then slowly bring your attention back down to each location crown, third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral and root. Ground your energy down through your hips and/or your feet. Slowly open your eyes when you’re ready to come back into the room.

There are 7 Bija mantras associated with the main seven chakras:

LAM (LUM) Red Root Chakra

VAM (VUM) Orange Sacral Chakra

RAM (RUM) Yellow Solar Plexus Chakra

YAM (YUM) Green Heart Chakra

HAM (HUM) Blue Throat Chakra

OM (OM) Indigo Third Eye Chakra

Silence (OM) Purple Crown Chakra

Benefits of Mantra chanting:

Mantra chants are simply a way to invoke sound vibrations in your throat to harness the healing power of that energy and foster transformative growth. Every mantra has its own vibrational frequency and different healing power which channels cosmic energy through our bodies, and generates incredible healing energy. You can use mantra chanting for love, success, health, peace, prosperity, or to connect with yourself

The words of a mantra are a vessel that takes you across the sea of your mind to arrive at the lands of the divine.

Repeating these words aloud has a particular effect on the body. As you state the mantra, your tongue is hitting meridian points on the top of the upper palate of the mouth, which impacts the energies going to other glands like the hypothalamus, the pineal, and the pituitary.

By arousing these meridian points, you’re physically producing the effect of relaxation and a modified state of consciousness.
When you first begin, don’t worry about your pronunciation and don’t fret about hitting the correct notes. All of this will come with time.
Chanting involves so much repeating, that you pick things up sooner or later.

Every morning I do this chanting to Lord Shiva: Karpur Gauram Karunavataram, Sansara Saram Bhujagendra Haram |
Sada Vasantam Hridayaaravinde, Bhavam Bhavani Sahitam Namami || ( It blesses the devotees with good health, wealth, and peaceful life.) and I am telling you my pronunciation is a disaster, but it is the intentions that count.

The most crucial thing in chanting is your heart. Open it up wide.
Ride the sound current like a wave. Feel the infinite divine right here, right now, within of you.

Namaste ❤

PS: This is one of the music I like to listen while doing work. It brings me peace !

Comment utiliser les huiles essentielles

Les huiles essentielles sont des composés extraits de plantes (fleurs, herbes et parties d’arbres, comme l’écorce, les racines, les pelures et les pétales). Les cellules qui donnent à une plante son odeur parfumée sont son “essence”. Lorsque celle-ci est extraite d’une plante, elle devient une huile essentielle. Les composés aromatiques uniques donnent à chaque huile essentielle son essence caractéristique.

L’aromathérapie est l’utilisation d’huiles essentielles aromatiques dérivées de plantes dans le but d’améliorer le bien-être de la santé physique et psychologique. En inhalant des huiles essentielles, les nerfs du nez (Olfactifs) déclenchent de puissantes réactions cérébrales comme le système limbique (qui joue un rôle dans vos émotions) et ont un impact sur l’hypothalamus (créant des substances chimiques cérébrales bénéfiques comme la sérotonine). Cela aidera à la guérison.

L’application topique permet aux huiles essentielles de pénétrer rapidement dans le sang en étant absorbées par les tissus de la peau.

Quels sont les principaux avantages de l’aromathérapie ?

  • L’aromathérapie peut réduire la douleur, car les huiles peuvent être absorbées par contact la peau. De nombreuses huiles essentielles ont des propriétés anti-inflammatoires qui peuvent empêcher le développement de certaines maladies. Elle peut améliorer le système immunitaire car les huiles essentielles qui sont inhalées entrent dans les poumons et sont ensuite absorbées dans le sang.
  • Les huiles essentielles aident à maintenir un taux de glycémie sain et peuvent être utilisées dans le cadre de votre alimentation pour aider à maintenir un taux de glycémie normal.
  • Les huiles essentielles améliorent l’humeur et créent une atmosphère positive. Les parfums sont des stimuli puissants qui pénètrent directement dans le cerveau, déclenchant des réponses émotionnelles intenses. En inhalant des huiles essentielles, votre cerveau signalera certaines émotions qui peuvent vous laisser plein d’énergie, d’optimisme et d’espoir. Ces huiles essentielles peuvent être ajoutées à un bain chaud ou utilisées dans un diffuseur d’huiles.
  • Les huiles essentielles ont de nombreux usages : elles peuvent non seulement servir à l’aromathérapie, mais aussi être utilisées comme répulsif naturel contre les moustiques et prolonger la durée de conservation des aliments.
  • Il a été démontré que les huiles essentielles améliorent la qualité du sommeil des personnes.
  • Les huiles essentielles pourraient soulager le stress, l’anxiété et la dépression – très utiles de nos jours avec toutes les incertitudes
  • Les huiles essentielles peuvent également atténuer les effets secondaires du traitement du cancer

Comment utiliser les huiles essentielles

Avec un diffuseur : c’est un appareil qui disperse les huiles essentielles dans l’air. Il existe plusieurs types de diffuseurs d’huiles essentielles que vous pouvez utiliser pour cela, comme les diffuseurs céramiques, électriques, ultrasoniques…

Avec un nébuliseur : puisqu’un diffuseur nébulisant n’utilise pas d’eau pour diluer les huiles essentielles, il s’agit d’une expérience aromatique thérapeutique beaucoup plus puissante. Aucune chaleur n’est nécessaire, de sorte que la structure chimique naturelle de l’huile essentielle n’est en aucune façon altérée. Comme le diffuseur utilise du verre, l’huile essentielle n’entre jamais en contact avec le plastique, de sorte que chaque particule de l’huile essentielle vous parvient à l’état naturel et vous procure tous les bienfaits thérapeutiques naturels.

Vous pouvez simplement inhaler : la méthode d’inhalation la plus simple est d’ouvrir un flacon d’huile essentielle pure et d’inhaler profondément plusieurs fois. Mais ne laissez pas l’huile non diluée toucher votre peau. Pour la méthode à la vapeur, vous aurez besoin d’un bol d’eau chaude et d’une serviette. Posez le bol sur une table et ajoutez quelques gouttes d’huiles essentielles. Placez une serviette sur votre tête et le bol. Fermez les yeux et inhalez profondément la vapeur pendant plusieurs minutes. Répétez l’opération plusieurs fois au cours de la journée. Certaines huiles essentielles peuvent être dangereuses et vous ne devez pas les utiliser si vous êtes enceinte ou si vous allaitez. Toutes les huiles ne conviennent pas aux jeunes enfants et aux animaux domestiques.

Évaporation à sec : Cette méthode ne nécessite qu’un certain type de matériau sec, comme une boule de coton ou un tissu. Ajoutez quelques gouttes d’huiles essentielles à la matière. Mettez-le prêt de votre nez et inhalez ou laissez le parfum se disperser naturellement. Vous pouvez ajouter le matériau aux orifices d’aération de votre voiture, au col de votre chemise ou sur votre taie d’oreiller. Vous pouvez également acheter un pendentif collier diffuseur, j’en ai eu un à Noël et c’est une idée géniale pour sentir le frais toute la journée !

Sur votre peau : Vous pouvez utiliser les huiles essentielles pour les soins de la peau et les massage. Diluez les huiles essentielles avec une huile de support et appliquez le mélange sur votre peau. Suivez une recette ou votre intuition pour faire un mélange afin d’avoir votre combinaison préférée sous la main. Les huiles végétales dites “porteuses” réduisent la sensibilité de la peau et augmentent l’absorption par les tissus cutanés.

Types d’huiles

  • huile d’olive
  • l’huile de noix de coco
  • huile d’avocat ( c’est celle que j’utilise 🙂 )
  • huile d’amande
  • huile de jojoba

Concentrez-vous sur les zones de douleur, de tension musculaires. Vous pouvez également frotter doucement l’huile sur les points de pression tels que les tempes, les poignets et le troisième œil. Vous pouvez également utiliser les huiles pour masser vos pieds et placer quelques gouttes autour de votre nez. Une autre option consiste à ajouter des huiles essentielles à vos produits cosmétiques préférés, tels que les toniques, les sérums et les produits massages musculaires. Mais prenez toujours soin de diluer l’huile essentielle dans une huile de support au préalable.

Dans le bain ou sous la douche : s’il est préférable de conserver les huiles essentielles en dehors de la salle de bain en raison de la chaleur et de l’humidité, vous trouverez ici de nombreuses utilisations. Vous pouvez ajouter quelques gouttes d’huiles essentielles à votre shampoing, votre après-shampoing ou votre gel douche. Pour inhaler des huiles essentielles pendant que vous vous douchez, ajoutez quelques gouttes sur les parois de la douche et inspirez profondément pendant la douche. Ou bien ajoutez quelques gouttes d’huile essentielle diluée à un gant de toilette chaud qui peut être utilisé pour l’inhalation et pour exfolier doucement votre corps. Diluez quelques gouttes d’huiles essentielles avec une huile de support avant de l’ajouter à l’eau de votre bain est très important.

Dans un humidificateur : Si vous choisissez d’ajouter des huiles essentielles à votre humidificateur, vérifiez les instructions du fabricant. Certains fabricants d’humidificateurs à ultrasons ne recommandent pas l’utilisation d’huiles essentielles. Pour utiliser des huiles essentielles dans un humidificateur, ajoutez quelques gouttes dans le réservoir d’eau. L’huile se vaporisera naturellement dans toute la pièce. Pour de meilleurs résultats, utilisez une brume fraîche et nettoyez votre humidificateur régulièrement.

J’utilise des huiles essentielles depuis de nombreuses années et je m’en sers presque tous les jours. Consultez nos huiles essentielles Single Mantra et notre huile essentielle Blend Mantra :

Tout au long de l’année, notre santé mentale, émotionnelle et physique est mise à rude épreuve. Ressourcez votre corps et votre esprit grâce aux huiles essentielles.

Benefits Of Essential Oils et Aromatherapy

Essential oils are compound extracted from plants (flower, herb, and tree parts, like bark, roots, peels, and petals). The cells that give a plant its fragrant smell are its “essence.” When an essence is extracted from a plant, it becomes an essential oil. The unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic essential oils derived from plants for the purpose of enhancing the well being of ones physical and psychological health. By inhaling essential oils, nerves in the nose trigger powerful brain responses like your limbic system (which plays a role in your emotions) and impact your hypothalamus (creating a feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin); all of that would send healing to the body.

Topical application allows essential oils to quickly enter the bloodstream by being absorbed through skin tissue.

What are the main benefits of Aromatherapy?

  • Aromatherapy can reduce pain, as the oils can be absorbed through the skin. Many essential oils have anti-inflammatory properties that can prevent the development of certain illnesses, it can improve the immune system as essential oils that are breathed in enter the lungs and are then absorbed into the bloodstream.
  • Essential oils helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels and can be used as a part of your diet to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
  • Essential oils improve the mood and set a positive atmosphere. Scents are powerful stimuli that directly enter the brain, triggering intense emotional responses. By inhaling essential oils, your brain will signal certain emotions that can leave you feeling energized, optimistic and hopeful. These essential oils can be added to a hot bath or used in an oil diffuser.
  • Essential oils have many uses not only aromatherapy, it can be used as a natural mosquito repellent and extending the shelf life of food.
  • Essential oils has been shown to improve the sleep quality of people.
  • Essential oils might ease stress, anxiety and depression – very useful nowadays with all the uncertainties
  • Essential oils also can ease the side effect of cancer treatment

How to use Essential oils?

With a diffuser: it is a device that disperses essential oils into the air. There are several types of essential oil diffusers that you can use for this, like ceramic diffuser, electric, ultrasonic …

With a nebulizer: since a nebulizing diffuser does not use water to dilute the essential oils, it is a much more potent therapeutic aromatic experience. No heat is required so the natural chemical structure of the essential oil is not altered in any way. Because the diffuser uses glass the essential oil never comes into contact with plastic so each particle of the essential oil reaches you in the natural state and provides you with all of the natural therapeutic benefits.

You can simply inhale: the easiest method of inhalation is to open a bottle of pure essential oil and inhale deeply a few times. But don’t let the undiluted oil touch your skin. For the steam method you’ll need a bowl of hot water and a towel. Place the bowl on a table and add a few drops of essential oils. Place a towel over your head and the bowl. Close your eyes and deeply inhale the steam for several minutes. Repeat a few times throughout the day. Some essential oils can be dangerous and you shouldn’t use it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Not all the oils is suitable for small children and pets as well.

Dry evaporation: This method only requires some type of dry material such as a cotton ball or fabric. Add a few drops of essential oil to the material. Hold this to your nose and inhale or allow the scent to disperse naturally. You can add the material to the vents in your car, your shirt collar, or your pillowcase. You can also buy a diffuser necklace pendant, I got one at Christmas and it is a brilliant idea to smell fresh all day!

On your skin: You can use essential oils for skincare and massage in a variety of ways. Dilute essential oils with a carrier oil and apply the mixture to your skin. Follow a recipe or your intuition to make a rollerball blend so that you have your favorite combination on hand. Carrier oils will reduce skin sensitivity and also increase absorption through skin tissue

Types of carrier oils:

  • olive oil
  • coconut oil
  • avocado oil ( this is the one I use 🙂 )
  • almond oil
  • jojoba oil

Focus on areas of muscular pain, tightness, and tension. You can also gently rub the oil into pressure points such as your temples, wrists, and third eye. You can also use the oils to massage your feet and place a few drops around your nose. Another option is to add essential oils to your favorite cosmetic products, such as toners, serums, and muscle rubs. But always take care to dilute the essential oil in a carrier oil first.

In a bath or shower: while it’s best to store essential oils outside of the bathroom due to heat and humidity, you’ll find a lot of uses for them here. You can add a few drops of essential oils to your shampoo, conditioner, or body wash. To inhale essential oils while you shower, add a few drops to the shower walls and inhale deeply as you shower; Happy mood while showering and also it is very good for the sinus. Or add a few drops of diluted essential oil to a warm washcloth that can be used for inhalation and to gently exfoliate your body. Dilute a few drops of essential oils with a carrier oil before adding it to your bathwater.

In a humidifier: If you choose to add essential oils to your humidifier, check with the manufacturer’s directions. Some ultrasonic humidifier manufacturers do not recommend the use of essential oils. To use essential oils in a humidifier, add a few drops into the water tank. The oil will naturally vaporize throughout the room. For best results, use a cool mist and clean your humidifier regularly.

I have been using Essential oils for many years and use it almost daily. Check our Single Mantra Essential oils and our Blend Mantra Essential oil:

Tea Tree Oil and its Benefits

What is Tea Tree Oil?

Melaleuca Alternifolia Plant

It comes from the leaves of Melaleuca Alternifolia, a small tree native to Queensland and New South Wales, Australia. Tea Tree Oil is also known as melaleuca oil. It has also been used as a traditional medicine by Aborigines for centuries. These native Australians crush tea tree leaves to extract the oil, which is then inhaled to treat coughs and colds or applied directly to the skin for healing. You could also get the essential oils by steaming the leaves.

Tea Tree Flower
Tea Tree Leaves

Description of the tree– It is an upright evergreen shrub with small, aromatic (when crushed), needle-like leaves and showy flowers in late spring and summer. Borne along the stems, the blooms may be single or double, in shades of red, pink or white depending on the varieties. The plant can grow from 6 ft to 10 feet tall

There are many benefits of tea tree oil. Benefits such as:

  1. Hand Sanitizer– Studies have shown that it kills several common bacteria and viruses responsible for causing illness, such as E. coli and H. influenzae.
  2. Insect Repellant– One study found that 24 hours after being treated with tea tree oil, cows had 61% fewer flies than cows not treated with tea tree oil. A test-tube study also revealed that the oil had a greater ability to repel mosquitoes than DEET which is the most common active ingredient in regular insect repellents.
  3. Natural deodorant– The oil’s antibacterial effects help to control underarm odor from perspiration. The sweat itself does not smell, it is when secretions from your sweat glands mix with the bacteria on your skin which produces a medium to strong odor. Your underarm area contains a large amount of these glands and is one of the main responsibilities for body odor. The oil’s bacteria-fighting properties let us use it as a natural alternative to regular deodorants and antiperspirants.–
  4. Aids in wound healing– Research has shown that tea tree oil helps reduce inflammation and triggers the activity of white blood cells that are helpful in the healing process. A few drops of tea tree oil can be added when dressing a wound.–
  5. Fight Acne– In one study, applying a 5% tea tree gel to acne lesions was shown to be more than three times as effective at reducing the number of lesions than a placebo. It was almost six times as effective in reducing severity of the acne.You could also make your own acne treatment by mixing one part tea tree oil with nine parts water and applying the mixture to affected areas with a cotton swab once or twice a day. Tea tree oil might work slower than benzoyl peroxide, but it seems to be less irritating to the skin. When applied twice daily for 45 days, tea tree oil reduces several acne symptoms, including acne severity. Those using the tea tree oil also experienced fewer side effects.
  6. Get rid of nail fungus (onychomycosis)- Fungal nail infections are quite common. Although they aren’t dangerous, they can be repulsive. There are medications that treat nail fungus, though some people prefer a natural approach. Tea tree oil has been shown to help get rid of nail fungus when used alone or in combination with other natural remedies. You can use a few drops of tea tree oil alone or mix it with an equal amount of coconut oil and apply it to the affected area, lower concentrations of tea tree oil do not seem to be as effective. Be sure to wash your hands immediately after applying in order to avoid spreading the fungus to other areas.
  7. Soothe skin inflammation– A common form of skin irritation is contact dermatitis, which is when skin comes in contact with an allergen, like: nickel. Exposure to the allergen leads to red, itchy and painful skin. Tea tree oil may help quell inflammation, possibly due to its high concentration of terpinen-4-ol, a compound with anti-inflammatory properties.It may also provide relief from bug bite reactions by reducing the itching, redness and swelling that occurs when your body releases histamine to defend against the insect’s saliva.
  8. Treats Athlete Foot (Tinea Pedis)- It is a contagious fungal infection on the feet that can also spread to the toenails and hands. Symptoms include peeling, cracking, blisters and redness. Anti-fungal medications are considered standard treatments for athlete’s foot. Yet studies suggest that tea tree oil may also be an effective alternative for relieving symptoms.

Never digest Tea Tree Oil! Although Tea Tree Oil is relatively safe it may be toxic if swallowed. Also if it is your first time using the oil test a drop or two on a small patch of skin before use.

Our Mantra Blends comes with six proprietary blends of harmony, steeped with tradition and significance. The essential oil blends using Tea Tree Oil are our Restore and Breathe Blend.

HempWorx MyDailyChoice Mantra Essential Oils help you relax into your natural and soulful happiness. With six enriching scents: Breathe, Energy, Restore, Relax, Focus and Sleep. There’s an essential oil ready to carry you throughout your day.

Eucalyptus Essential Oil and Its Benefits

Eucalyptus is a fast-growing evergreen tree native to Australia. Chinese, Indian Ayurvedic, Greek and other European styles of medicine have incorporated it into the treatment of a range of conditions for thousands of years. There are 400 different species of eucalyptus. Eucalyptus globulous is also known as Blue Gum, it is also the main source of eucalyptus oil used globally. The oil is used as an antiseptic, a perfume, an ingredient in cosmetics, a flavoring and in dental preparations.

How the oil is made:

Leaves are distilled to extract the oil, which is colorless liquid with a strong, sweet, woody scent. It contains flavonoids and tannins; flavonoids are plant-based antioxidants and tannins may help to reduce inflammation.

DO NOT TAKE ORALLY! Although eucalyptus oil has many benefits, the undiluted form can be toxic if you take it orally. Just 2-3 milliliters can trigger dizziness, drowsiness and loss of muscle control. Five milliliters or more can lead to nervous system shut down or even coma. Always dilute the oil with a carrier oil before use.

How the Eucalyptus plant look like:

The eucalypti grow rapidly, and many species attain great height. The giant gum tree, or mountain ash (Eucalyptus regnans), of Victoria and Tasmania, is one of the largest species and attains a height of about 90 meters and a circumference of 7.5 meters. Many species continually shed the dead outermost layer of bark in flakes, whereas other species have thick textured bark. The leaves are leathery and often hang vertically; most species are evergreen.

The flower petals cohere to form a cap when the flower expands. The capsule fruit is surrounded by a woody cup-shaped receptacle and contains numerous minute seeds. Possibly the largest fruits from 5 to 6 cm in diameter are from  Silverleaf eucalyptus. The leaf glands of many species, especially black peppermint tree and Tasmanian Blue Gum, contain a volatile aromatic oil known as eucalyptus oil. Tasmanian Blue Gum, northern gray ironbark, and other species yield what is known as Botany Bay kino, an astringent dark reddish resin, obtained in a semifluid state from incisions made in the tree trunk.

Eucalyptus is believed to have a number of medicinal properties, although not all of them have been confirmed by research.

  1. Antimicrobial properties: By the end of the 19th century, eucalyptus oil was used in most hospitals in England to clean urinary catheters. Research is starting to back this practice up.
  2. Colds and respiratory problems: Herbal remedies recommend using fresh leaves in a gargle to relieve a sore throat, sinusitis and bronchitis. Eucalyptus oil vapor acts as a decongestant when inhaled. It is a popular home remedy for colds and bronchitis, a number of cough medications include eucalyptus oil.
  3. Dental care: The antibacterial and antimicrobial potential of eucalyptus has been harnessed for use in some mouthwash and dental preparations. Eucalyptus is active in fighting bacteria that cause tooth decay and periodontitis. An example can be in chewing gum or mouthwash.
  4. Insect and rodent repellent: Eucalyptus is an effective insect repellent and insecticide. Oil of lemon eucalyptus (OLE) is recommended by some as an insect repellant; It is effective at keeping mosquitos away, it is also effective at keeping rats or rodents away. Keep them away with a eucalyptus oil solution, spray it regularly in places where you see them. Many of the chemicals in it, especially 1,8- cineole, deal a powerful punch to pests. The solution is also kinder to the environment than harsh chemicals. EPA’s list of effective, safe insect repellants is a short one, for both chemical and natural methods. A special kind “oil of lemon eucalyptus” has a chemical called PMD that shoos away mosquitos and other bugs.
  5. Stimulating immune system:Researchers found that eucalyptus oil could enhance the immune system’s phagocytic response to pathogens (white blood cells) in a rat model. Phagocytosis is a process where the immune system consumes and destroys foreign particles.
  6. Ease arthritis pain: Eucalyptus is a key ingredient in some topical analgesics. These are pain relievers you can apply directly to your skin, such as sprays and creams. It works by bringing a cold or warm sensation that takes your mind off the pain.
  7. Household grime fighter: The oil is an active ingredient in more than 30 cleansing products approved by the EWG, a non profit environmental research group. In one of the studies, it removed bacteria including E.coli from the steel surfaces.
  8. Loose head lice: Eucalyptus and tea tree oil together as a treatment did two times better than the Pyrethin treatment. It killed 100% of the lice and eggs, in only one single dose while most treatments need several doses. The tests on the skin showed no irritation for adults or children.

Clary Sage Essential Oil And Herb

What is Clary Sage?

A flowering herb that is native to the Mediterranean Basin and parts of Europe such as: Hungary, France and Russia. The essential oil is extracted from the leaves and buds of the plant. Cleary Sage is also known as “clear eye” and “eye bright”, because of its traditional use as a treatment for eye health.

Cleary Sage is a herb in the genus salvia which encompasses all the sages, salvia sclarea is a short-lived herbaceous perennial or bennial. The plant also yields an essential oil called clary oil or muscatel sage, which is used for topical afflictions and in aromatherapy applications. The plant also had a history of use as a medicinal, flavoring agent and aromatic.

How to grow Clary Sage; What to do?

It is a biennial that begins as a rosette in the first year and in the second year it will grow a flower stalk. It is a short-lived plant that usually dies after the second year, in some climates it may persist weakly for one or two more seasons. The plant grows and thrives in full sun and well drained soils. Sage can be grown and planted from seeds, cuttings or layered. The most important step to grow Clary Sage is drainage. Pick or snip the clary leaves any time after the plants are 8 inches or taller. Pick the leaves in the morning for the best flavor. Cut flowering stems once the flowers are three-quarters open. Cut the stems off of the flowers near the base of the plant. The herb is deer resistant, so that it is ideal for the naturalized or meadow garden. The plant can spread by seed but volunteer seeding is usually minimal, it attracts honeybees and other pollinators to the garden. The herb requires a chilling period of at least three months to produce flowers, which is why it is not good in hot climates.

What not to do:

Wet sites can rot the plant or severely affect its growth. Clary sage does not do well in a herb or pottage garden or mixed in a border of perennials.

Description of Clary Sage

The plant can grow up to 4 feet tall and it produces purple-blue flower spikes from late spring until mid summer. The flowers are held in panicles which contain 4-6 blooms.

There are two common cultivators of Clary Sage. One called Turkestanica, it is 3 feet tall with longer flower bracts and a more pronounced blue color. The next one is called Vatican, it is a white flowering clary sage herb with the same cultivation as Clary Sage.

The herb has many uses and benefits such as:

  • The herb can be used as a skin balm.
  • The herb can be inhaled as a part of aromatherapy.
  • Stress reduction- Aromatherapy uses the power of scent to calm the mind and reduce anxiety. Your olfactory system directly affects the part of your brain that regulates emotion, which is why scent can trigger memories and feelings of both negative and positive. It also reduces deep tension.
  • Natural anti-depressant- Clary Sage has been tested on both animal and humans to determine its potential benefits as an anti-depressant.
  • Alleviation of menopause symptoms- Used for hot flashes, night sweats, irritability and palpitations.
  • Reducing menstrual cramps- Apply the oil to the needed area of your abdomen and rub for a soothing massage. The natural chemical compounds are among the most soothing and calming compounds.

Lavender, one of the most popular essential oils in the world

The most popular one is Lavandula augustifolia, I was used to have a lot of  plants when I was in France and I still take some from my parents garden, dry the flower, put it in little pouch and then in my wardrobe to have a nice smell.  Lavender is not only a plant with fresh and floral scent but has many benefits for our health and skin care.

Little History :

  • Lavender has been discovered over 2,500 Years ago. The Egyptian used it for mummification and as a perfume
  • The Romans used the lavender oil for bathing, cooking and purifying the air. It got the name from the roman “lavare” which means laver (in french) or to wash (in english)

Today Lavender has so many virtues and that is why we use it in our skincare. It’s been used both cosmetically and therapeutically. It is a powerful antioxydant, antimicrobial, antidepressive , has calming effect and sedative.

  • Lavender restores skin complexion and reduce acne
  • Slows aging process with powerful antioxydants
  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces nervousness and emotional stress
  • Helps healing wounds and burns
  • Improves brain function
  • Can help with hair loss by massaging the scalp

Why choose a nebulizing diffuser?

Why choose Nebulizing diffuser instead of a water diffuser?

💠 Since a nebulizing diffuser does not use water to dilute the essential oils, it is a much more potent therapeutic aromatic experience.

💠 No heat is required so the natural chemical structure of the essential oil is not altered in any way.

💠 Because the diffuser uses glass the essential oil never comes into contact with plastic so each particle of the essential oil reaches you in the natural state and provides you with all of the natural therapeutic benefits.

So how does a nebulizing diffuser work?

🌀When an air current is forced through a small tube, the velocity is increased while the pressure at the exit point is reduced.

🌀That difference in pressure creates a kind of suction that causes the essential oils within a separate glass tube to rise upwards.

🌀As the essential oil rises, a stream of pressurized air hits the essential oil and causes it to atomize into micro-particles that fill the glass reservoir.

🌀Once in the glass reservoir, those tiny particles rise up and are emitted out of the glass cap in a (water-less) mist that is released into the local environment.

🌀The remaining particles of essential oil return to the bottom of the diffuser creating a cycle that will repeat until the oil has been used up completely.

We have the Set of Mantra Essential oils and The Nebulizing Diffuser for a special Price: available now until December 25th 2019 ( midnight PST)
