The Aromahead Blog — Aromatherapy Education and Resources
Aromatherapy school and courses by a premiere education center is dedicated to the study of the therapeutic uses of essential oils. The Institute offers the highest level of Aromatherapy Certification available.
When Nicole was 15 years old, her friend shared a little bottle of Patchouli oil with her.
That little bottle changed her life!
(That feels so relatable . . . Can you remember your first encounter with an essential oil, when you realized it was something special? The oils have a way of connecting with us that can feel like magic!)
Years later, Nicole decided to learn more about essential oils.
Since she graduated from the Aromatherapy Certification Program, Nicole has developed a line of organic, vegan products, Urban Organics.
She uses her products in her Reiki practice. People love Urban Organics so much that it’s sold in a local spa (Ophelia’s Green Spa), and used by the other spa workers.
3 Ways that Tea Tree Essential Oil Benefits Us, and How to Use It Safely
Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) is one of the most well-known essential oils—right up there with Lavender!
If you browse the internet looking for Tea Tree essential oil benefits, you will come up with a truly long list of effects. And some of the information you’ll find will be spot on! There are a LOT of benefits that Tea Tree essential oil offers us.
But some of the information online is not entirely reliable.
Even when it’s shared with the best of intentions, by people who have used the essential oil themselves, the information may be a little misleading.
So how do you know what information you can rely on?
Jennifer Cakus bought a small collection of eight essential oils for herself and her daughter, along with an essential oil diffuser for each of them.
Neither woman was experienced with essential oils, so they started by diffusing just a few drops of one oil at a time.
They both paid attention to how the oils seemed to affect them . . . and it wasn’t long before Jennifer realized that she felt less fatigued, with more “pep” in her step, and more emotionally balanced overall.
Jennifer began turning to the oils more and more. When her daughter asked her for a blend to support stress and anxiety, Jennifer was happy to help. She created a blend with Lavender essential oil . . . and was so pleased that the blend truly helped her daughter.
How to Blend Turmeric Oil with 3 Other Essential Oils for Joint Pain for Natural Relief!
Turmeric is one of my favorite essential oils for joint pain.
It calms inflammation and relieves pain so well!
Even persistent pain that shows up in our joints and prevents us from enjoying things like typing, going up and down stairs, driving, walking, dancing, gardening . . . (this list could get really long!)
I want to show you how to use Turmeric oil in a base of aloe vera gel, along with three other amazing essential oils for joint pain: Juniper, Cedarwood, and Lemon.
I love aloe vera gel as a base for this blend, because it doesn’t leave your hands or joints feeling oily after you apply it. The aloe vera gel is light, and absorbs quickly into skin. The perfect carrier for when we want our essential oils to get right to work on a painful area!
