The term “aromatherapy” was first coined in 1928 by the French chemist, René-Maurice Gattefossé. However, essential oils have been used to scent both our body and environment via incense and perfume by ancient civilizations for thousands of years for religious, medical, and cosmetic purposes. Today, essential oils are being used to fragrance homes and businesses, for ambiance, relaxation, energy, stress relief, and productivity...

by Monika Haas

The discussion about the perils of ingesting essential oils dates back to the beginning of Modern Aromatherapy in the early 1970s. How do we know what is right for us? Before we can decide, we need to take a look at the various schools of thought in aromatherapy: the British, the French and the Californian/American...

Nothing turns a commonplace, ho-hum room into a radiant, inviting setting faster than the flicker of a few ordinary candles scattered strategically throughout the room. Add scented candles and you can quickly evoke childhood memories, transport your imagination to a tropical island, or infuse the room with the crisp scent of a pine forest. Aromatherapy candles add yet another dimension to the equation...

Spring is the perfect time of year to consider enhancing your home and overall well-being with rejuvenating essential oils. One that tops the list this season is the gentle flowery and fruity scent of Bergamot (Citrus bergamia). Just the image alone of a delicate bergamot tree growing in Calabria, Italy conjures up a sense of refreshment...

Many people believe that aromatherapy only works because certain scents make us feel good and  help us relax.  It is true that scents can affect us at a   subliminal level . Because the olfactory system  is connected to the bottom of the brain without being processed by any higher brain centres , a smell can activate memories of Grandma’s garden, or a horrible hospital experience, faster than any sound or sight can do, and without any processing of the raw, visceral emotion...

Are you one who thinks that essential oils are useful only within the parameters of a spa treatment? They can also be quite useful in our daily lives in a myriad of ways throughout our homes and offices. We can literally "smell up our lives..."

Here's a lovely recipe for a Lavender & Rosemary Milk Bath. With just about 5 minutes of prep time you can have an aromatic and healing bath. Enjoy!...


Editor's Note: Muscle-relaxing magnesium will be absorbed from the Epsom salts while the buttermilk and powdered milk soften the skin. This aromatherapy blend is good for a morning bath, as Rosemary and Lavender stimulate the body by increasing circulation and assisting the lymphatic system in eliminating metabolic waste products that may accumulate in the body overnight. Inhaling Lavender and Rosemary in your steamy bath may also help relieve lung and sinus congestion.

Editor's Note: Robbi Zeck’s words and expressions provide gentle but provocative support for deep emotional change, bringing awareness to daily living and beautifully uplifting the heart. Enjoy in peace.



by Denise Wickell

Oh, the joys of diffusing essential oils!


To enjoy the aroma of Christmas trees year-round or to be enveloped in the bouquet of flowers; to be uplifted by the fresh sunny scents of grapefruit or orange, or securely grounded with the deep, earthy aroma of patchouli or vetiver. All are delights for the senses and treats for the soul...
