D.I.Y. Blending vs Professional Aromatherapy Consultation

Have you already experienced the healing power of essential oil therapy? Do you find yourself purchasing a variety of oils, and making your blends? Are you completely enthused to learn more, but at times it seems overwhelming, and you are not sure where to start or how to continue?

An aromatherapy consultation is the best way to learn about essential oils for therapeutic purposes.

Learning to apply essential oils, for therapeutic purposes can be fun and exciting. However, we ALL have limitations that are beyond our current scope of knowledge. When you reach your limitation, where do you go to for advice? Do you go to the internet because it quick, satisfying our desire for immediate gratification? An online essential oil group, because its free advice? Perhaps you consult a book for a readymade, one size fits all recipe?                                                           

If you value the healing power of essential oils, yet recognize that:

  1. You have reached a limit to your scope of knowledge to blend safely and effectively.
  2. Have discovered information on the internet is a sea of inaccuracy and misinformation, that is often more hurtful than helpful.
  3. Realize ready-made recipes from a book are a good place to start. However, a custom blend, based on your individual makeup, constitution, and energetics, would be more thorough and effective.
  4. You want to save time and frustration from D.I.Y blending, for a chronic or acute concern. Then you may also recognize the value behind a professional aromatherapy consultation.
