Citrus Essential Oils Comparison Chart Guide

February 4, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Why are Citrus Essential Oils so Important? Citrus essential oils are top notes. They typically come at you quick, then dissipate within a short period of time. So, if their scent doesn’t linger, why are they so important? Can they help that fast? The answer is yes. Even when a scent doesn’t linger, science shows us that just one whiff can fill the olfactory receptor sites to cause the brain to engage, activate and trigger action throughout the entire body and brain. They are important because they are our “cheerleaders”. Our “flashlight”. Our “activators”. They activate the mind and body... Read More

Essential Oil Recipes to Increase Productivity Aromatherapy can enhance cognitive functions, in all areas of the brain and gut. Science shows it powerful effects for enhancing memory recall, learning new tasks, cognitive response time, analytical thinking and problem-solving. Memories triggered by scent have stronger emotional connections, therefore appear more intense than other memory triggers such as sight, sound or touch (source).  When you have faster and accurate cognitive functions, it will enhance and accellerate productivity, stamina and endurance. This is helpful for work projects and performance, as well as daily personal tasks. Let’s face it, we are in a multi-tasking,... Read More

Bay Laurel Significance With Nerves & Victory

January 15, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Bay Laurel Essential Oil, Laurus nobilis Bay laurel is probably most recognized for its use in the Olympic Games as a symbol of victory. It has a sweet yet dry, warming, floral-ish scent with ever so light hints of spice. It is a very strong scent, so 1 drop in an aromatherapy blend can go a long way. Too much can overtake and overpower a blend. A good balance would be 1 drop bay laurel to 3 drops of a citrus note, 2 drops of a floral note, and 1-2 drops of a base note. Physically, bay laurel can calm... Read More

2020 Hot Trends in Aromatherapy

December 12, 2019 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy trends have changed over the years. Essential oils and the practice of aromatherapy are certainly more of a household name today, than it was, say, ten years ago. I remember when I first started my aromatherapy business almost 20 years ago, that there was still a learning curve of what aromatherapy was, how it works, and why it helps with so many health ailments. There was not as much evidence based research as there is today. You used to have to read the actual medical and holistic health journals to get the information that is not at our fingertips...

JennScents Holistic Aromatherapy Comprehensive Guide Book Review: Through the Eyes of a Student Written by:  Lovetta Davis I specifically chose this textbook to assist me with my Level 1 JennScents Aromatherapy certification course that I am now in the process of taking and completing.  Not only did this textbook assist me in taking and completing this course with its valuable wealth of information, but it also was a valid education for me in learning the “truth” about the often misunderstood, misinformed and falsified world of “essential oils”, in the effort toward capitalization of the industry.  Nowadays you can practically get...
