Why Does One Aromatherapy Method Work Over Another?

Why Does One Aromatherapy Method Work Over Another?

December 29, 2018 Leave your thoughts

I get asked this question a lot from students – “why does one application method work over another?”.  Or “Does one application method in aromatherapy work better than others?”  Bottom line, it comes down to three factors – the purpose of your aromatherapy blend, the contents or ingredient list and user compliance.  If someone does not take baths and only prefers showers, a “bath salt” might not be the best option.  You may consider a shower gel. Experience of Applications Completing case studies as a student gives you first-hand experience, working with different personalities, different blending techniques and seeing varying... Read More

Respect and Aromatherapy Responsibly Respecting aromatherapy and essential oil safety is imperative. As with anything you use, educate yourself about what you are using, why you are using it, how to properly use it for what you need and when to use it.

In addition to these quality conundrums, safety is also a big concern, as many people who have not received formal aromatherapy training may not be aware that there are numerous concerns, precautions and contraindications to...
