    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.” […]

    Join me for the Orange Essential Oil Spotlight Webinar!

    November 27, 2017

    Opening a bottle of Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil never fails to bring a smile to my face! If you’ve ever walked into a room where someone’s recently peeled an orange, you know how instantly uplifting the aroma is! (“Mmm, who’s eating an orange?!”) Sweet Orange essential oil’s scent is just like the freshly peeled fruit. It’s warm, familiar, and comforting. It’s bright and optimistic. And it’s relaxing enough to diffuse as you’re falling asleep. […]

    Make Your Own Cedar and Spice Foam Soap

    November 20, 2017

    We’re coming to the time of year when many people make recipes they might not make at any other time—the holidays! Some people make special casseroles, pies, or ciders and drinks that they save for this season. I like to make special Aromatherapy recipes! There are a lot of essential oils that can create a warm, cozy holiday atmosphere, but some seem to be more associated with the season than others—such as Douglas Fir (Psuedostuga menzies), Cedarwood (Juniperus virginiana), Pinon Pine (Pinus edulis), Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis), Peppermint (Mentha × piperita), Cardamom (Elettaria cardamomum), and Clove (Eugenia caryophyllata). You can use them to create a festive atmosphere with seasonal diffuser blends, natural cleaning blends, and foam soaps . . . like this one! […]

    Hot Springs in the Forest Bath Salt Recipe

    November 13, 2017

    When was the last time you relaxed in a hot springs in a forest? Whether you said “Just last week,” or “I’ve never done that,” then it’s been far too long! I can’t actually take you to a hot springs in the forest, but I can give you this bath salt recipe that can help you feel like you’re there (if you close your eyes!). It’s made with Vetiver and Siberian Fir essential oils. Vetiver has a deep, earthy aroma that is often used in perfumes. It’s grounding and comforting, and is so calming to the nervous system that it has earned the nickname “Oil of Tranquility.” […]
