What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy, also called Essential Oil Therapy, is the use of aromatic plant essences, plant materials extracted to gain the essential oils for use in massage, the body, bath or home.
Is Aromatherapy beginner friendly?
Yes. As a beginner you don’t need a special certificate to use aromatherapy personally or around your home. The basic class gives you the guidelines, tools and resources to get you started.
Are there people who shouldn't use Aromatherapy?
Yes. There are restrictive guidelines for children, elderly, pregnancy and certain illnesses or ailments. So it is very important to share certain information with your aromatherapist. These topics are discussed in detail in all my aromatherapy classes.
Are perfume or fragrance oils the same as essential oils?
No. Perfume or fragrance oils should not be confused with or used in place of essential oils. Essential oils are extracted from plant/ plant material. Perfume or fragrance oils are created, or produced, to mock the scents of nature. Then used for perfume/colognes, candles, air sprays etc., without the therapeutic benefits.
Can I ingest my oils?
One of the most common questions and debates is about putting essential oils in your water to drink. Essential oils are natural, but they still have a chemical footprint. Used improperly they can undermine their safety and benefits. Oil and water do not mix and pure essential oils are concentrated! Proper education is needed before advising someone on using oils internally and even then the oils should not be used daily.
