What is Aromatherapy, Why Use It & How Can It Help One’s Health?

October 23, 2018 Leave your thoughts

When you ask most people what is aromatherapy, they will reply candles, soaps and/or perfumes.  Most people forget the connection that aromatherapy has with mental and emotional health. Aromatherapy in general is an amazing tool that offers the body and mind the ability to connect to itself and heal. When you think about it, the nose is a direct protrusion of our brain. It is the “external brain” that allows our internal processes to have contact with the outside world to assess, evaluate and initiate responses. When you breathe in, you are sending messages to the brain on how to respond... Read More

August 15, 2018 Leave your thoughts

Aromatherapy is such a broad term these days. So many people have essential oils, diffusers and some form of carrier oils or bases.  When you talk about aromatherapy, most people nowadays will say, “oh, my favorite smell or scent is …”.  Or they might say, “I love essential oils because it helped me with…”.  This is so exciting.  When I wrote my first business plan in 2002, one of my mission statements was to be a part of the community that makes aromatherapy a household name.  Today, it is more than a household name. How exciting, right?   What Kind... Read More

Fear! Many people associate with an uncomfortable, stressful, paralyzing and cringing feeling. What if we changed our perception of fear?

Ah, the smell of grapefruit is refreshing and uplifting.  One of my all-time favorite aromatherapy combinations is grapefruit mixed with peppermint essential oil.  It smells like cotton candy to me (minus the heavy sugary scent). It reminds me of run, refuels my spirit and invigorates my soul. Grapefruit has a distinct flavor to it, which gives you an early indicator that it is unique, bitter and firm in its aroma, yet sweet and rejuvenating. Grapefruit, being a citrus oil, is most notes as being a mood elevator. However, it does so much more for the body. It is a key... Read More
