The Power of Plants ~ HONEYSUCKLE
Infused with NURTURE ~ Aromatherapy Fusion Massage Blend
There are hundreds of varieties of Honeysuckle (Lonicera) from around the world. This beautiful garden plant with highly fragrant flowers, is often used in massage oil blends, soaps, cosmetics and lotions. It is a wonderful plant to look at, to smell, and – as a practitioner – to work with. When I was creating the Fusion Massage range, I knew honeysuckle would be the basis of at least one aroma experience. I wanted to bring a sense of ‘being held’ and well-being, to the massage experience. And so, the Infused with NURTURE blend was created.
As a flower essence, Honeysuckle is recommended to anyone overwhelmed with grief, nostalgia, and the belief that they are unable to feel nurtured in the present moment. Helping to restore courage, release old memories that cause pain and trauma, Honeysuckle can support anyone trying to move ahead in life. Some practitioners recommend this aroma when the ‘ability to age gracefully’ is required. I refer to it as my perfect go-to when experiencing any “mid-life crisis” issues!!
The flowers, leaves and seeds have many medicinal uses also. Honeysuckle contains powerful nutrients – minerals, vitamins, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, Rutin and Quercetin – that collectively work to enable the smooth functioning of all body systems. In traditional Chinese medicine, the flower is linked with the lung, stomach and large intestine meridians.
Using honeysuckle is also recommended as a support for a variety of health issues such as inflammatory conditions, skin irritations and wrinkles, anxiety, stress, depression, headaches, improving digestion, boosting immunity and also pain relief. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties make it a natural remedy to support people with, joint and back pain, and arthritis.
Honeysuckle is known to increase blood flow to the extremities and skin surface. I find that Honeysuckle provides a warming, muscle-relaxing and stimulating element to the Infused with NURTURE blend. It helps to speed healing, and eliminate toxins which get locked up in tense muscles.
Fusion Massage is a combination of Aromatherapy, Crystal Healing and Reiki. It is a perfect treatment for men and women wanting relaxation, self-care, nurturing and well-being on a physical, emotional and mental level.
Massage benefits include stress reduction, releasing tension, eliminating toxins, lowering blood pressure, inner peace and calm.
All Fusion Massage oil blends, come in range of Aura-Sprays that are available for purchase.
