January 10, 2021 Leave your thoughts

Before we get into the 7 essential oils for the lymphatic system, let’s talk about what this system does for you. It is an important body system that assists with carrying in nutrients and carrying out toxic wastes. Essential oils, what I call “CPR for the cells”, can help enhance movement within fluid systems such as lymph, blood, cerebral spinal fluid and urine. Having an ebb and flow of good nutrients coming in while the toxic debris is eliminated is one crucial role of the lymphatic system. When it gets congested, stagnant and clogged up, nutrients cannot get in, and... Read More

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...

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.

They are important because they are our “cheerleaders”. Our “flashlight”. Our “activators”. They activate the mind and body... 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...
