Aromatherapy has been around since ancient times dating as far back as the Egyptians and Hippocrates. So the practice of Aromatherapy and using aromatherapy products is far from new. Aromatherapy has gained much attention recently and has increased in popularity with products that include natural skin care products, aromatic bath salts, natural body lotions or body moisturizers, herbal salves, massage oils and roll ons.
For those of you new to Aromatherapy, it is the use of 100% pure essential oils or essential oil blends to help influence one’s mood, emotions, or physical wants or needs. It is often used to compliment numerous other alternative healing modalities and can help in the body’s ability to heal itself by supplying the body with an oil’s energy. Aromatherapy is unique because the essential oils have the ability to affect our bodies instantly through our sense of smell and through our skin bypassing our digestive system.
Some common therapeutic properties of essential oils include analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, antiviral, deodorant, decongestant and expectorant, stimulant, and nervine. It is easy to see how adding 100% pure therapeutic essential oils to products like bath salts, massage oils, natural skin care products and natural body lotions can be so effective.
Creating Custom Blends
Creating aromatherapy blends, herbal salves, natural body lotions, and natural skin care products is one of my favorite things to do! I enjoy it so much that I am continuing my education in Aromatherapy taking certification courses approved by NAHA, the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapists which will shortly lead to me becoming a Certified Aromatherapist.
We work with many individuals helping them to create their own custom blend or personal care product. Many customers come in with recipes they want to try and have us make them so they do not have to purchase all the ingredients themselves! There are also many applications to choose from as well. We can create almost any product including roll on perfumes, body sprays, room sprays, aroma inhalers, aromatic roll ons, body lotions, bath salts, salves or balms. We would be happy to schedule an aromatherapy consult with you to assist you in selecting what essential oils may help you depending on your needs and which smells attract you.
If you have any of the below concerns, you may find a custom essential blend helpful:
- Pain Relief
- Improved Sleep
- Improved Mood
- Improved Energy
- Sore Muscles
- Improved Relaxation
- Improved Peace of Mind
