Aromatherapy: A Complete Guide to the Healing Art

As I’ve been on my journey the past year and half in learning about essential oils and how to use them for healing and wellness as well as for aromatherapy, I’ve been reading a lot of books and listening to a lot of training. Some books are better than others and Aromatherapy: A Complete Guide to the Healing Art
is one of the best books on aromatherapy I’ve read. This book contains a lot of recipes just like in other books on aromatherapy but it also has sections on medical aromatherapy, fatigue, memory, dangerous oils, anxiety and fear, sexuality, depression and more. There are also sections on using essential oils for bath and skin care and for using in the kitchen. Overall this is a comprehensive and very good book on aromatherapy and using essential oils.

What is Ylang Ylang?

Have you ever smelled a Ylang Ylang flower, or Ylang Ylang Essential Oil? I recently experienced it for the first time and I love it. They say that many people consider it to be poor man’s Jasmine because it smells similar but it costs a lot less. I’ve used it on my skin, in my bath water and I’ve put my nose to it to smell it. It has a way of uplifting your mood and making you feel happier. Overall, it’s just a fun and happy oil to smell.

What is Aromatherapy?

What words come to mind when you hear the word aromatherapy? If you are like most people, then you probably think perfume, massage, candles, smells, scents. That is what I thought before I was introduced to essential oils. However, I have since learned that aromatherapy is much more than that. In fact, you could say that aromatherapy is the usage of essential oils and smells to assist in the healing and overall wellness of the body. The term aromatherapy is also used in regards to the science of perfumes. People who are master aromatherapists learn how to blend essential oils in various ways in order to assist in natural healing of a variety of health elements and conditions.

While I am certainly not a master at aromatherapy, I’ve learned a lot and I plan to keep learning more. One of the best places I found to learn aromatherapy for beginners is Aroma Therapy Online Course.
