Aromatic Ingredients Aromatherapy Articles

In aromatherapy, only pure and natural essential oils, absolutes, floral waters, resins, carrier oils, infused oils, herbs and other natural substances are used. Read about the natural ingredients used in aromatherapy:

  • What are Fragrance Oils?
    Fragrance oils and products containing synthetic compounds are not used in the practice of holistic aromatherapy. Read the explanation here.

Aromatherapy Safety Information

Essential oils must be treated with respect and care. Learn more about the safety precautions that you need to take within these must-read articles:

Aromatherapy for Emotional Well-Being

Although aromatherapy should not be considered a miracle cure for serious emotional issues, the use of essential oils can assist, sometimes greatly, with particular emotional issues. Learn more within this article.

Working With and Blending Thick Aromatic Oils

This article describes and explores the options for working with thick oils.

How confusing can the combination of two simple everyday words such as aroma and therapy be? In reality, the term aromatherapy leads to two false assumptions. Learn more within this thought provoking article.
