Quick—what are some of your favorite Aromatherapy blogs?
I can think of a few right off the top of my head!
- Aromatics International
- The Aromahead Blog (of course, haha!)
These blogs all share information about essential oils, but each has it’s own focus.
The Aromahead Blog is all about sharing inspiring essential oil stories, recipes for creating your own products and in-depth education.
Aromatics International also shares a lot of recipes and education about the essential oils they sell—and their focus includes hydrosols, carriers, and other ingredients.
Mommypotamus writes about using essential oils and Aromatherapy for children and your family—and also shares a wide variety of other recipes and information about natural living.
I’m sharing these three blogs with you for a few reasons . . .
First, I think you might love subscribing to them! They are excellent resources!
Second, I want to show you the different kinds of Aromatherapy blogs you can create. It’s a wonderful option if you’re looking for a career in Aromatherapy!
If you have ever thought about starting your own Aromatherapy blog, now is an excellent time.
As you can see from the wide variety of blogs out there, there is a huge and growing interest in essential oils! People want to know all about them—what they are, what kinds of benefits they offer, how to use them safely, and more.
They want to feel empowered to care for their health naturally.
Aromatherapy blogs that are written by Certified Aromatherapists offer an excellent source of information. Seeing that the author is a Certified Aromatherapist can help readers wade through the vast amount of material that is present online (some of it misleading . . .)
Not sure what kind of Aromatherapy blog you could create?
Here are some ideas . . .
- Using essential oils for children
- Where essential oils come from
- The science and chemistry of essential oils
- Essential oil safety: what is rumor and what is fact?
- Essential oils for sleep and stress relief
- Essential oils for energy
- Using Aromatherapy in a spiritual practice
- Using Aromatherapy in a physical practice (like yoga!)
- Aromatherapy and massage therapy
- Essential oils and pain relief
- The latest essential oil research
And that is just what I could dream up off the top of my head!
Once you decide on a “general topic” of your Aromatherapy blog, you can get a domain and set up a website (creating your own website is very easy these days!) Then . . . start writing!
Building a following for your blog can take time. Be patient, persistent, and share what you are doing with others on social media. If you regularly share valuable content that they find useful in their lives, people will start to take notice and get excited about your posts.
