This blog post is a diversion from its usual Philippine Airlines promo updates. It will still be related to traveling preparation still. We will introduce you to Aromatherapy and the beneficial use of aromatic essential oils that have antimicrobial, antibacterial and antiviral properties and characteristics that could in a way be helpful with us.
Let us check what Aromatherapy is. Understanding it and how we can apply it on our day to day lifestyle for that holistic sense of well being affecting our mental, emotional and spiritual state. Of course, in Aromatherapy, only pure essential oils are used. A careful dosage and educated knowledge about it makes it interesting. Clinical studies have been currently conducted to check its efficacy.

There are many ways to use essential oils, you can aromatically use it when you smell it by simply diffusing it to the air using a diffuser.
Some prefer a topical application in a from of massage oils, lotion, milk bath or foot soak.
Others will ingest it for its benefits. However, this should be taken with caution as not all oils can be taken internally. Only a few selected essential oils are safe with a controlled dosage up to 2 drops of it.
So how can we use essential oils when we travel?
We always have a small bottle spray that comes in handy that serves as a sanitizer or room spray. You can mix pure essential oils with water in a 250 ml bottle spray. Maybe add up to 20 drops of essential oils.
For example, 5 drops of lemon, 5 drops of frankincense, 5 drops of peppermint and 5 drops of lavender for a total of 20 drops in a 250 ml spray bottle.
Shake it and you can readily use it so spray the air with its goodness, or on your pillows, on your seats, or can be used as your natural perfume too.
Essential oils have very tiny chemical compounds in a molecular level that plants used for their own protection against bacteria, virus, foreign intrusion, healing and even pollination.
We have a very long history during the ancient times where people use herbs, plants, trees, fruits, flowers as medicines for their illnesses and sickness at that time and even up to this very day.
Again, do remember that essential oils or aromatherapy is not an alternative to orthodox medicine. They are certainly NOT CURES for any circumstances.
Consult a licensed doctor for illnesses for their prescribed medicines as treatment.
NEVER use essential oils as alternative treatment or cure for any specific disease.
Be always careful of distributors or sellers of essential oils that will convince you that it is an alternative medicine. Because it is NOT!
They are just supplementary or support to medicines prescribed by doctors.
You should definitely follow the doctor's prescriptions for the cure of your sickness.
