Aromatherapy part 1

Well folks I have finally decided to start a blog. For the longest time I wrestled with idea after idea of what to say, alas all sounded boring and not worthy of your attention. Then it hit me..BAM....I have spent quit a chunk of change over the past few years receiving my monthly packages to complete my Mind Body Spirit Collection and I think it a great idea to share with you it's contents.

So with that being said, I am going to start off with


Aromatherapy, Choosing the right scent:

There is a mass array of aromatherapy fragrances to choose from, but it's easy to get a hang of picking the one that's just right for you.

Some frangrances will help you sleep, others the opposite, they wake you up. Some relax you and ease away stress and anxiety; others still are revitalizing and will pick you up for that all important job interview or business meeting. You can soon get to know each plants individual properties and it's healing effects.

Oils that smell very similar often have verr different effects. Lemon is a stimulant, yet lemongrass is a sedative....exact opposites! Rosemary and peppermint, on the other hand, smell nothing alike, but both are great for fatigue.

essential oils work wonderful for aromatherapy, though some oils work better on certain areas of your body than others. Here is a list of some oils and what they work great for.
