    A Great Essential Oil Earache Blend to Use for Kids!

    by Andrea Butje on January 15, 2018

    I want to share a popular essential oil earache blend from my online class Aromatherapy for Natural Living.

    It’s made with a few simple ingredients, including Lavender essential oil—one of the most gentle, nurturing oils in the Aromatherapy world!

    In fact, if Lavender essential oil were a person, I think it would love to run a care center for children.

    Lavender loves supporting children (and adults) through all kinds of issues. It can’t stand to see a child hurting and have no way to help them!

    Fortunately, Lavender is an Aromatherapy expert. It’s learned how to calm inflammation and ease pain, while also offering emotional comfort. This comes in especially handy when kids get earaches—a very distressing childhood issue!

    3-Hour Aromahead Class on Using Essential Oils for Colds and Flu!

    January 08, 2018

    Wouldn’t it be great if you could sit down with a cup of your favorite tea and watch a video that would tell you everything you need to know about using essential oils for colds and flu? And wouldn’t it also be great if you only needed five essential oils to make all of the blends in the video? And wouldn’t it also also (haha!) be great if it explained the chemistry of those five oils, so you could make more informed blending choices? You’d know just how to use essential oils for colds and flu to keep your family healthy . . . and all from a video! Ah, it sounds like a dream . . . […]

    Orange & Clove Resin Incense

    December 25, 2017

    Happy Holidays! I hope you have something beautiful planned to celebrate this season. Spend time with friends or family, or simply take some time for yourself to appreciate the beauty of life and reconnect with what is true for you. Aromatherapy is the perfect companion for times like this. It helps us stay connected with the moment and with ourselves—with the peaceful, uplifted parts of ourselves that we can sometimes forget amidst busy schedules. This recipe is for a loose incense that takes less than a minute to make, and fills your home with a resinous aroma with hints of citrus and spice. It looks beautiful displayed in a bowl, making it a perfect holiday decoration that also has a practical use. (Beautiful and practical—a great combination!) It also makes a wonderful gift. […]

    Celebrate! Pain Relief Oil (and Diffuser Blend!)

    December 18, 2017

    If Peppermint essential oil had a “day job,” it would probably be an event planner. Peppermint loves good times! Just open a bottle of the essential oil, inhale the aroma of the cap, and you’ll see what I mean—even the scent of Peppermint is bright and refreshing. Peppermint essential oil is an excellent choice for energy, mental sharpness, concentration, inspiration, and feeling positive. Black Spruce is a beautiful partner for Peppermint. It has a “deep evergreen forest” aroma that is a favorite for many people. Black Spruce is good at stirring up stuck energy, reducing fatigue, and helping you feel restored. […]

    A Holiday Recipe! Warm Resin Citrus Body Oil

    December 11, 2017

    In my book, The Heart of Aromatherapy: An Easy-to-Use Guide for Essential Oils, I gave “personalities” to 40 different essential oils. Frankincense runs a meditation center, and the entire building was crafted by hand. The whole place is a work of art! While it may feel a little “exotic” the first time you go, Frankincense will quickly help you feel right at home—it’s good at making the extraordinary feel like a daily reality. Sweet Orange has a sunny fruit orchard where you can go for a retreat to release all your worries. It’s “the friend you’ve known for years who never lets you down—familiar, warm, and always there when you need a bit of comfort.” […]
