Using Aromatherapy for Self-Nourishment & Adrenal Fatigue

October 18, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Think about how many times during the day you help someone else. Now think about how many times during the day, you help yourself. Or take a 10-15 break, without any technology, just to do some deep breathing, walk around the block or nurture yourself. In most cases, you have a double digit number next to helping others. And you probably have a 0 or 1 next to helping yourself. Well, it’s time for self-nourishment aromatherapy! THE BANK OF YOU Start thinking of yourself as a bank. The bank of YOU – YOUbank, an Emotional bank, a Mind-Body Bank, whatever... View Article

JennScents VIRTUAL Custom Aromatherapy Blending Bar

October 13, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Creating Personalized Blends to Match Your Mind-Body Health Needs We are excited to be one of the first to offer a Virtual Aromatherapy Custom Blending Bar experience. I began my aromatherapy custom blending bar in 2002, at a local herb shop in my hometown. There was nothing like it and it really happened by accident. It started out with me visiting the shop frequently as I was working on regaining my health. I then came every day and talked with people when they came into the store. I shared that I made me an Intestinal Soother to calm my bowels... View Article

Essential Oils and EMF Protection

October 11, 2017 Leave your thoughts

I was recently asked if there is an essential oil that helps with EMF (electromagnetic field) protection. Antioxidants have been scientifically shown to be very beneficial with EMF protection. All 100% pure essential oils possess antioxidant properties, in addition to many other health supporting properties such as anti-inflammatory, antiviral, immune boosting, nervine, etc. They each have varying Hertz frequencies, which generate energetic protection by increasing the body’s Hz to combat the incoming stimuli. When you look at the effects that EMF’s have on immune system suppression, blood cell functions and health and cellular communication, you can see that essential oils... View Article

Why can’t I sleep? Help me abolish insomnia!

June 28, 2017 2 Comments

Do you have trouble sleeping? What could be a cause of insomnia? Often I hear complaints like… “I wish I could fall asleep before midnight” “I can never get a good night’s sleep. I wake up every night around the same time and it takes me hours to fall back asleep” “I always wake up so tired. I barely slept and my brain just doesn’t want to function” Sound familiar? Sleep can be tricky.  Did you know that you have a body process called the circadian rhythm? This is a process that does maintenance on different body systems or organs every... View Article

Honoring Our Veterans With Deep Appreciation & Gratitude

May 24, 2017 Leave your thoughts

Mental Health PSA as we approach memorial day – a day to honor our veterans who have seen and experienced some unimaginable sights. Mental Health instability affects so many people. There are statistics that show it affects 1 in 5 people, but what about those who suffer in silence. I’d almost bet the stats are closer to 1 in 2 or 3 people. It’s the silent sufferers I want to reach out to. Many depend on anti-anxiety and anti-depressant medications to go out in public, handle stress and even just do normal, everyday tasks.  Here are some helpful ideas to... View Article

At JennScents, I am an aromatherapy educator, practitioner, author, guest speaker and essential oil formulator (which is one of my favorite things to do).  When formulating, it is about matching up individual essential oils to the purpose and goal of the blend.

February 1, 2017 2 Comments

Mental health imbalances affect thousands of people in the United States, every day. Some people have trouble getting out of bed, some have debilitating fears that keep them from leaving the house or being in crowds, and others have eating disorders, sleep disturbances, depression and anxiety. Lifestyle experiences, environment, nutrition, social support and aromatherapy are key factors in daily well-being. Most people don’t realize the power a scent can have on behavior, mood, responses and reactions.   Aromatherapy is a powerful tool at our fingertips that can help with any mental and cognitive issue.  When you smell a particular scent...

It’s time to replace the unhealthy “smoke-break” with a healthier option – the “scent-break”.

Aromatherapy…Olfaction in an Instant to Promote Courage and Joy

November 28, 2016 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy is a unique, fun and self-fulfilling practice that brings most people joy, comfort, peace, relaxation, rejuvenation, revitalization and inspiration. A single scent can provoke an immediate response to tell your body how to respond.  You see, scent travels in through the nose, to the olfactory bulb, where scent assessment and recognition takes place.  It then continues through several other cephalic organs and processes, such as the hypothalamus, hippocampus and amygdala, as it makes its way down the vagus nerve, aka the tenth cranial nerve, and triggers the “second brain”, the gut, to take action.  This instant process of “assess...

Harvest Time Reflection Fall is a great time to reflect, ponder and assess your accomplishments thus far in the year, that you earned from a seed you planted in the winter and spring.

The Power of Helichrysum For Emotional Healing

January 19, 2016

Helichyrsum is a very special plant and essential oil.  It is one of my absolute favorites for emotional healing. It helps us combat deep emotional scars, battle wounds, traumas, PTSD and adversity.  It inspires courage, willpower and strength to persevere and conquer anger, fear and resentment. Not only does it help with emotional scars, but physical scars as well.  You can diffuse a couple drops during the day, or when you are journaling about your emotional issues, to help you connect on a deeper level, really reaching the depths of that trauma so you can own it then release it. Helichrysum... View Article
