“Did you know that you have been experiencing aromatherapy since the day you were born?
It’s true – even as an infant! Most of your first experiences with aromatherapy began with your mother. Along with the sound of her soothing voice and soft laughter, there was a scent about her that you came to recognize, through her soap, body lotion, or maybe even her perfume. Of course you were too young to understand what you were experiencing, but you instinctively knew that you felt content, happy and relaxed. It was a natural occurring feeling that affected your mood as it evoked a sense of well-being and relaxation, as well as revitalizing or uplifting.”
This is the introduction paragraph from my upcoming eBook ‘Aromatherapy For Everyday Living’, and I thought it would be the perfect way for me to launch my new blog~Aromatherapy Everyday. In case you haven’t noticed, I am passionate about aromatherapy in all forms, but we’ll get to that in a later blog.
Now many of you who know me will find this hard to believe, considering the fact that most scents from perfume, soaps, aftershave, deoderants, cleaning products… well you get the idea, all leave me with a massive migraine that could last for days. So how could I possibly be so enthusiastically crazy about something that is literally all about the scent? The answer, which sounds a little mysterious, lies in discovering the difference between the scents.
Aromatherapy with essential oils is so much more than just a scent, they also come with an added bonus…they have therapeutic value. This term simply means these wonderful oils (created by Mother Nature), have the potential to ‘heal’ with their scientifically proven anti-bacterial, and anti-virus benefits; and may potentially hold the key to unlocking numerous health benefits for both physical and psychological ailments. I know, it’s exciting right?
Here at Aromatherapy Everyday we believe that adding essential oils into your everyday life can help support, enhance, and delight your senses, while providing help for: stress relief, respiratory health, muscle tension and pain, increase concentration, sleep enhancement, skin care and so much more; including safe and healthy alternatives when it comes to the cleaning products you use everyday in your home.
Whether you are new to aromatherapy or just need to brush up on the incredible healing properties of each of these essential oils, you will want to refer to our Essential Oil Guide (also located in the menu at the top of this post). We will continue to add more essential oils with each new recipe, so be sure to check back often.
Well now that we have gotten some of the scientific proof and and the healing information out of the way, you are ready to “dip your toes” into the ‘scentual’ world of aromatherapy and discover how easy it is to incorporate essential oils, herbs, and salts, with easy to use recipes along with their health, healing, and relaxing benefits for the whole family, including your pets, and your home.
It has been said that our sense of smell is the strongest sense we have when it comes to our memories, and the feelings associated with them, and there is no better proof than aromatherapy in action.
