What Is Aromatouch Essential Oil?
Aromatouch is doTERRA’s spa or massage blend.
This blend is all about soothing, healing and supporting both your body and your mind.
It’s a relaxing and calming blend that’s also great for relieving tension.
It’s a blend of:
Basil which is a cooling agent for the skin, supports healthy blood flow and can help relieve tension so it’s a great oil to use during massage.
Grapefruit which is an uplifting oil that can support healthy metabolism. In the emotions and essential oils book grapefruit is the oil of honouring the body and it can help bring in a sense of respecting and appreciating your physical body.
Cypress which is energising and refreshing but also grounding and calming. It’s also a great support if you’re feeling anxious.
Marjoram which is really supportive of the nervous system and the immune system and is great to soothe tired or stressed muscles.
Lavender which is a calming and relaxing oil. It can be a beautiful support if you’re feeling stressed or anxious and is also really nourishing and soothing for the skin too.
Peppermint is really energising so it’s great to reach for if you’re feeling low on energy. It’s also a cooling oil and can help relieve tension.
Oil Safety Notes ::
Grapefruit oil, as with all citrus oils, are “photosensitive”. That means your skin may be more sensitive to the sun or you may experience sunburn more easily.
When using photosensitive essential oils it’s best to avoid direct sun exposure for around 12 hours after use.
Practially that means don’t cover yourself in photosensitive essential oils and then:
- head out to sunbathe or for a day in the sun;
- spend time at a tanning bed; or
- go to a hot yoga class as the heating systems used in some studios can replicate sun exposure.
And if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding it’s best to tuck Aromatouch away for later as the peppermint oil in the blend can reduce milk supply in breastfeeding women.
For more information about oil safety when pregnant or breastfeeding check out The Essential Midwife or speak with a certified aromatherapist.
How Can I Use Aromatouch?
Aromatouch is the perfect massage blend. It’s ideal at the end of a busy day and great if you’re on your feet all day or spend a lot of time sitting.
Dilute with fractionated coconut oil or your favourite carrier and massage into any areas of your body that are holding tension.
I particularly love to use aromatouch across the back of my neck, shoulders and on my lower back to soothe aches and pains.
Calm Your Farm ::
Diffuse on its own to soothe and calm your body and mind.
For an added dose of calm, blend with Peace (see the Zen blend below).
Feel Energised & Awake ::
Diffuse or smell straight from the bottle to help you feel calm but awake.
Aromatouch is a great oil to help get the day started or to use when the morning or afternoon energy slumps hit.
For some extra uplift, blend with Citrus Bliss (see the Wide Awake blend below).
Aromatouch For Emotions
According to the Emotions and Essential Oils book, Aromatouch is the oil of relaxation.
It’s calming, can help soothe and ease physical tension and can also help open the heart and mind.
It’s also a really supportive blend to use in times of grief, sorrow or loss.
And where the physical act of massage supports circulation and blood flow within the body, emotionally this blend can help us move with life and allow things to flow so it’s a good oil blend to reach for if you’re feeling stuck or like everything’s a struggle.
As this oil is a beautiful blend of 6 different essential oils, it’s really interesting to know how they all come together to support both body and mind, physical and emotional. So here’s a snippet about the emotional properties of each oil in the blend.
Basil brings in renewal and is a wonderful support if you’re feeling tired, drained, exhausted or just plain over it.
Grapefruit is the oil of honouring the body, inviting in acceptance so we can feel at home in our own skin and nourish and care for our bodies.
Cypress is the oil of motion and flow – a great oil for those of us who feel stuck, or struggle with fear, perfectionism or a need to control life. Cypress can help us feel safe to be flexible and go with the flow a little more.
Marjoram is the oil of connection and can help us feel open, connected and safe. I also find that marjoram is a lovely oil to play with when I want to deepen my connection to myself too – to connect with my thoughts, ideas, needs, desires and dreams.
Lavender is the oil of communication and I find that where marjoram is about connecting with our thoughts, ideas and needs, lavender is about voicing them. It can be a beautiful support for anyone feeling unheard, unseen or afraid of rejection as it brings in the positive properties of emotional honesty, open communication, and the ability to voice your needs and share your true self with others.
Peppermint is the oil of a buoyant heart – it can help in times of despair, pain and pessimism and help us move towards optimism, strength, clarity and lightness.
