    What is Trauma Oil? (And Three Ways to Use It!)

    September 25, 2017

    Did you accidentally bump into the coffee table and bruise your leg . . . again? Do you have a sore neck after sleeping in a funny position last night? Do you have aching joints and soreness in your fingers and wrists? You sound like you could use a little Trauma Oil! […]

    Neroli Vetiver Hydrosol Body Spritz

    August 28, 2017

    Hydrosol body spritzes are so refreshing! Hydrosols are created during the process of distillation at the same time as essential oils. After the plant material has been distilled, then we have both the essential oil and the water portion of the distillate. The water portion is the hydrosol. Hydrosols are aromatic and offer their own therapeutic effects, distinct from the essential oil that came from the same plant. (Nature never ceases to amaze me!) I like to use pure hydrosols for things like natural cleaning blends and body spritzes. It is so refreshing to spritz yourself with a few sprays of hydrosol if you’re feeling busy, stressed, or if it’s a hot day. And you can use your Lavender hydrosol body spritz as a surface cleaner if you like! Aromatherapy is beautifully versatile and always there for us. […]

    How to Make Better Essential Oil Choices for Your Friends and Family

    August 21, 2017

    As someone who loves essential oils, how often do you make blends or recommend oils for your family and friends? This can be one of the most fun, rewarding parts of Aromatherapy! It’s so fulfilling to be able to help the people you care about with your knowledge of essential oils. I receive emails daily from people who want to help others with essential oils, but don’t feel fully confident about their ability to do that. They want to be sure they make or recommend something that’s effective and safe! […]

    An Aromahead Class all about Frankincense Essential Oil

    August 14, 2017

    I’ve visited Morocco, where the spice markets are full of baskets overflowing with raw Frankincense resin. It’s such a gorgeous, exotic sight, and the aroma is unforgettable! It’s no surprise that people have been burning Frankincense resin as incense throughout history. Today, we can also distill the resin to get Frankincense essential oil. […]

    How to Make Gardener’s Hand Scrub with Basil and Rosemary

    July 31, 2017

    When working in the garden, there are a few things it’s good to remember . . .   Make sure to wear sunscreen or a hat for plenty of shade. Wear good gloves for weeding and trimming plants. Clean your hands with an all-natural, homemade gardener’s hand scrub, and be sure to get the dirt out from under your nails before you eat dinner. (Haha!) I have an Aromatherapy recipe for that! This is a natural Basil Rosemary Gardener’s Hand Scrub blend that you can use any time your hands feel dirty and grimy, or dry and cracked. It’s also great for artists, such as sculptors who work with clay, or painters who tend to get paint all over their hands. […]
