Interesting fact: Aromatherapy has been used for over 6000 years, first by the Chinese who used to burn special herbs to promote harmony and well-being.

Modern day aromatherapy using essential oils is a continuation of that practice. Essential oils can be diffused in a diffuser, many can be added to our bath, and some can be taken orally. I generally create scented products using essential oils to enjoy at home.  These same crafts can easily be given as easy homemade gift ideas.

  1. I started really paying attention to essential oils when the medical and nursing communities started recognizing that aromatherapy had scientific backing as valid alternative therapies to medication. Great natural alternative to the over-medicating we currently practice.
  2. I love essential oils and using them to relax or de-stress!
