    Aromatherapy Careers: How to Publish an Aromatherapy Magazine

    April 17, 2019

    Imagine something with me . . . You dream of running a magazine about Aromatherapy and herbs. (That’s not hard to imagine . . . it sounds amazing!)

    How to Do a Eucalyptus Steam (+ why it works!)

    April 15, 2019

    Here’s how to do a Eucalyptus steam safely, so you get all the benefits of the essential oil without having to be concerned. Eucalyptus is one of the most effective essential oils for issues like colds and coughs. It’s a strong natural immunity booster. (I’ll explain why it works so well after I share how to do a Eucalyptus steam.) Steam itself has such therapeutic effects, too—it surrounds us, cradling us in nourishing warmth, helping us relax and release tension. Adding a little essential oil to the steam deepens its benefits. But you don’t have to get in the shower or have a steamy sauna. You can do a “mini-steam” right in your kitchen! First, fill a bowl with warm, steamy water. Be careful not to burn yourself. […]

    What is Aromatherapy? (What Aromatherapy is and how to use it!)

    April 08, 2019

    We share a lot of fun essential oil recipes on The Aromahead Blog, but let’s get back to a few basics! What is Aromatherapy, anyway? Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to support health and well-being—whether that means cleaning the house, recovering from a cold, sleeping more soundly at night, or any number of benefits! Essential oils are naturally produced by some aromatic plants. It’s amazing how many different ways plants can produce essential oils. For example, Vetiver essential oil is stored in the plant’s rootlets, so we have to harvest those to obtain the oil. Cedarwood essential oil comes from the tree’s wood, and Orange essential oil is primarily extracted from the rind of the fresh fruit. Lavender essential oil comes from Lavender flowers, but there’s usually also some in the little leaves of the plant, too. […]
