Infused and Essential Oil Synergies
Since ancient times, people have used plants to care for themselves and enhance many aspects of their well-being. We have used plants to nourish, cleanse and heal ourselves.
When we consider healing the” whole person”, there are various interventions that assist. Therapeutic oils serve us well; they are able to affect us on all levels of our being. Creating “synergies “of oils, enables a more powerful therapeutic result, than using an individual oil.
Treating symptoms is not the goal, but to naturally support the shift into an optimum healing state. Oils are a perfect companion to the Counselling process and our Transformative Tisane Blends to assist you in your overall healing journey.
How Do You Benefit from Transdermal Oil Therapy?
During a Body session, Ora Blended Oils are inhaled; the oil molecules are absorbed into your skin. They promote beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system, a region of the brain known to be involved in emotion.

Magnesium and Coconut Oil Blend
Magnesium oil isn’t actually oil. It is a combination of magnesium chloride flakes and water which gives an oily feel to the mixture, but I combine coconut oil into a beautiful whip.
It aims to keep inflammatory markers in the body low, for example, helping to regulate blood pressure, heart rhythm and keeping bones strong.
Below are just some of the important benefits that magnesium has on the body.
- Reversing osteoporosis (improves bone density)
- Reducing risk of cardiovascular disease
- Helps treat diabetes
- Helps migraines, insomnia and depression
- Regulates blood pressure
- Reduces muscle cramping and tension
Transdermal (through the skin) magnesium therapy has shown to be effective as it is absorbed straight into the body’s cells and tissues and raises magnesium levels in the body over a shorter amount of time. Transdermal magnesium massage is very popular as it enhances tissue recovery, reduces pain, and improves tendon and ligament flexibility, and helps break down inflammation, therefore, easing muscle cramps and spasms.
Magnesium oil also has the effect of calming the nervous system and promoting relaxation of our muscles and many massage therapists are tying this in with their relaxation massages.
Magnesium oil can be highly concentrated therefore when applied to the skin it may have a small effect of itching or tingling sensations and will irritate or sting if you have a cut, scratch or open wound. The best way to determine if it doesn’t agree with you is to apply a small amount to the back of your hand or a small patch of skin. Magnesium may also interact with some medications and have a negative effect so it’s best to check with your therapist before using it in treatments.
