Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic plant oils to alter ones mood and cognitive well being. The natural and pure scent from essential oils can have a great effect on how you’re feeling, and it’s important that you’re using essential oils and NOT fragrance oils. {Fragrance oils possess no natural aroma}

You can use aromatherapy in many ways. Some of the most popular include the use of essential oil blends in lotions, body washes, soaps or applied topically diluted in oil.

DIY TIP: For safety it's important that you do proper research on how to dilute and apply specific oils. We recommend no more than 2% of essential oils in a recipe, but always recommend you check your suppliers dilution and safety specifications.
