The three Kings clearly had a crystal ball about the challenges that baby Jesus would have to face, as at least two of their three gifts were great stress-relievers.
Frankincense and myrrh are both resins included in essential oils – and would have made great aromatherapy oils. With the festive frenzy in full flood a bit of stress-relief is what we all need right now.
I like to use fragrant oils for relaxing massages, not only for their restorative qualities, but because there’s nothing like a lovely aroma wafting over you as you relax. I often use them with hot stones as the heat releases the fragrance quickly.
Most people love a hot stones massage and find it deeply relaxing as the warm stones glide over their back and leave them feeling seriously de-stressed. It’s an excellent way to relax tight muscles and release tension around the shoulders and lower back.
A hot stones massage can be also get rid of the toxins that build up in your system.
Hot stones are a great way to boost your immune system as the heat of the stones recreate that feeling of lying in warm sunshine. Who gets colds when the weather is warm? And if you’re suffering from a cold the moist heat of hot stones works to release congestion and helps your system to recover and block further cold germs.
A hot stone massage is a gentle re-energiser.
Just lie back, relax and let those hot stones soak all the tension away while the gentle fragrance soothes you. What could be better?
