Aromatherapy has many uses in our homes. There is a lot of research about its medicinal properties and claims for improving psychological and physical wellbeing. Whether you're a believer or just love making your home smell divine, finding the perfect oil blend is magic.
If your new to aromatherapy all you will need is an oil burner/diffuser and your chosen oils. Oil burners come in the traditional ceramic style with a tealight that heats the oils and diffuses the aroma, or the electronic diffusers readily available from most large shopping centers and specialty stores and range from $15-$200. These are a much safe option as you can set a timer and they don't use heat so perfect for little ones. The only other thing you'll need is the essential oils. When purchasing your essential oils it's extremely important that you buy good quality oils and not synthetic copy oils. There are many options to buy good quality oils online or in shops or feel free to get in contact with me directly.
Now that you have your diffuser and oils ready its time to make your home smell better than your favorite candles.
Below are my 5 favourite blends. The numbers represent the drops used in the diffuser, do not use these in you are pregnant, or around newborn babies or in children's bedrooms. They are safe for family rooms as long as the children are 2+ years old:
2 Sweet Orange
2 Ylang Ylang
1 Chamomile (optional)
Down to Earth
1 Wild Orange
1 Ylang Ylang
Crisp and Fresh
