Lavender benefits

Just wanted to say a little bit about the beautiful lavender plant and how amazing it is.

These gorgeous purple blooms have been growing since ancient times.

It’s uses were well known to the Romans and it remained part of our medicine culture throughout history. It was likely regularly used by our grandparents and great grandparents and still holds its place as one of the favourites in Aromatherapy today.

I’m going to talk a little bit about Lavandula Angustifolia which is English lavender and it’s therapeutic benefits.

Here’s a couple of things you might like to know about lavender essential oil.

1) Commonly known for its affect on stress and reducing problems with insomnia it is a lovely relaxant and great for anxiety as well too.

2) It is good for wound healing and can help speed up the healing process.

3) It’s also helpful with burns as well as being anti-bacterial.

4) It can be diluted to treat small cuts and insect bites.

5) Lavender is also useful for relaxing muscles and tension which includes tension headaches and migraine relief.

Nb: This is for guideline use only. Please consult your natural health practitioner for more information on your individual circumstances for example if you are pregnant or have low blood pressure lavender may be contraindicated for you.

Dragonfly Natural Therapies offers Aromatherapy massage as well as consultations tailored specifically to your individual health needs.

A look back at ‘Nourished in Nature’ Retreat Khao Lak Thailand

A look back at ‘Nourished in Nature’ Retreat Khao Lak Thailand.

Firstly, I would like to say Thank you to the lovely ladies who joined me for this special retreat in Khao Lak Thailand.

We spent 6 nights together to celebrate our connection with nature and to deepen our connection to self.
We were blessed with sunny tropical weather and breath taking beauty in nature.
During the retreat we indulged in tropical fruit, delicious Thai food and discovered much about Thai culture and Nature.
Some of the high lights were exploring temples and historic sites, bamboo rafting through the jungle, enjoying a day out to explore the Similan Islands National Park and to snorkel and receiving Thai Massages overlooking the beach.
I managed to fit in a few workshops, healing sessions and consultations along with some meditations on the beach.
During this time, we let go, relaxed, received, reconnected to ourselves and shared with each other.
Below are a few pictures from our time.
I’m feeling so blessed to have had this experience and I look forward to inviting you to the next one in Thailand in 2020.
