Exciting news! Our lovely Essential Oil Pharmacy teacher Shireen Calucin and Executive Director Caroline Fan will be on a live interview on RTHK Radio 3’s Kwok Talk today Monday at 1:15pm.
Prior to Shireen's health talk on the radio, she shares her health tips and favorite oil blend for this winter:
1) Shireen, what are the most common health issues in winter and how can we tackle them with aromatherapy?
Colds and coughs and dry rough skin. As soon as you start feeling the typical symptoms of flu make up a blend of anti-viral oils and apply onto your chest and upper back as often as possible to get the oils into your system to do their job.
For dry skin, make up a blend of your favourite essential oils with a rich fatty vegetable oil such as Avocado oil, Argan oil and Wheatgerm oil. You then have a beautiful therapeutic scented body oil to be applied onto your skin to counteract dry skin.
2) Which Essential Oils are your favorites at the moment and how do you blend them?
Ravintsara, Ginger, Mandarin and Black Pepper blended in sweet almond and applied as a body oil to support the respiration and immune system.
3) What are your top tips to de-stress during the Holidays?
Sleep, eat, and play; do all the things that make you happy and that you don’t have time to do normally.
Thanks, Shireen - make sure to tune in to our Kwok Talk at 1:15pm !
