Aromatherapy Roots: Getting to know Rene-Maurice Gattefosse

October 7, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Interesting story about Rene-Maurice Gattefosse…many who have studied aromatherapy, have heard his name as a leading pioneer in forging the path in aromatherapy. As the legend goes, it has been said that he burned his hand and stuck it in a vath of lavender oil to heal it. Well, that is not actually true. The Lavender Legend I first learned about that legend when I started studying aromatherapy almost 20 years ago. I recently attended an aromatherapy conference and heard Gattefosse’s granddaughter and great-granddaughter share his life’s legacy. Turns out, on 7/25/1910, he actually was working in his lab (as...

Essential Oils For Nerve Pain Case Study: CRPS

September 2, 2020 Leave your thoughts

Working with essential oils for nerve pain can be tricky. My advice is to start slow and work up as nerves really are sensitive. It’s like eating ice with an exposed nerve or receded gum line. You have to be aware of several factors so you can properly assess and formulate a helpful blend using essential oils for nerve pain, without overstimulating the pain. What is their sensitivity level? Where is the pain? How long have they had the pain? What is their pain level on a scale of 1-10? Current tissue state? Hot or cold? Wet or Dry? Tense... Read More

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

Let’s Talk Essential Oil & Aromatherapy Safety

September 20, 2018 Leave your thoughts

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.
