Woody, earthy, pungent, warming, heating and grounding. All the words that you want to hear as the cooler days set in.
Not an essential oil this week but I talk about a carrier oil. Without a carrier oil I would struggle to perform an aromatherapy treatment. Just like essential oils a carrier oil has huge properties too.
Strengthening, restoring and uplifting. A major oil for the nervous system. One powerful oil with a wide range of actions.
Not an essential oil that many are familiar with but a powerful detoxifier of the liver and kidneys and a superb skin oil.
Do you smell orange? Maybe lemon, or could it be lime? Think earl grey tea with a slice of lemon.
Who would have thought that the pot of basil in your kitchen could be so powerful when the oil is used in aromatherapy? The aroma has me salivating. I adore its properties.
Geranium is a little like marmite. You either love it or hate it! Personally I love it. Not the actual plant as I don’t like the aroma at all but the oil I think is amazing….
I would fill every room in my home with this uplifting beautiful aroma to clear the chest and mind. I love its expansive nature. With the change of season colds are already upon us and this is my go to oil.
Lavender. The one essential oil that people will always hold some knowledge about it. Most think it is one of the safest oils but are they right?
Think of the smell of rice pudding. Warming, comforting and calming. A childhood memory for many. Such a complex oil in both its chemistry and aroma. A prime musculoskeletal and psychological oil helping with many emotional issues.
