    A Holiday Recipe! Warm Resin Citrus Body Oil

    by Andrea Butje on 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.”

    by Andrea Butje on 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.

    Cedar Citrus Bath Salts Help You Sleep when You Have a Cold

    January 04, 2016

    For those of you feeling under the weather or if you have a cold, it can be tough to feel rejuvenated and inspired for new beginnings. Do you have some favorite "feel better" practices for that?

    Natural Cleaning Tips

    December 12, 2011

    Here are a few fun natural cleaning tips from my eBook, Essential Living: Aromatherapy Recipes for Health and Home. Cutting Boards To keep wooden and plastic cutting boards free of bacteria, use a few drops of Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon). First, wash the board with hot water and castile soap. Then put about five drops of Lemon essential oil on a clean sponge and wipe the board vigorously, front and back. A nice side effect is that the sponge is now also clean and bacteria free! Floors Use hydrosols and hot water on the floors. Any mop will do, but we suggest mops with a removable terry cloth cleaning surface. They’re great for cleaning hardwood floors, ceramic tile, marble, and vinyl. They also work well on ceilings, walls, and windows. The terry cloth cover is removable and machine washable. When cleaning floors, soak the terry cloth cover (or regular mop) in hot water. Squeeze the water out, then pour a cap full (a few tablespoons) of Lavender hydrosol or Sweet Grass hydrosol directly onto the mop. Deodorizing Spray for Trash Makes: One 16 oz (480 ml) spray bottle Ingredients:
 15 oz (450 ml) water 1 oz (30 ml) white vinegar 20 drops Peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita) 30 drops Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis) 30 drops Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon) […]
