Essential Oils

What are Essential oils and Aromatherapy?

Thousands of years old, the practice of aromatherapy is based on the use of essential oils. Essential oils are extracted from the aromatic essences of certain plants, trees, fruits, flowers, herbs and spices. Each one has its own scent and unique healing properties. When the extracted oils are inhaled or applied to the skin(in a carrier oil), they begin to work immediately on body tissues and then are absorbed through the pores and into the bloodstream to treat specific ailments and restore your natural balance both physically and mentally.

How do I use the essential oils?

When mixing essential oils in a carrier oil, I recommend starting with a ratio of 1:10. This translates to about 20 drops essential oil per ounce of carrier oil. Use a high quality organic carrier oil such as olive, jojoba, sunflower or coconut. There are many other exotic oils available online as well or check your local co-op.
The mixed oils have endless uses. I personally use them for the medicinal powers and to help me sleep. My personal favorites are lavender, ylangylang, patchouli, eucalyptus,tea tree, rosemary and ravensara.
Its a good idea to educate yourself about the individual benefits of each oil online or with a good book.
