Aromatherapy Tips!

Nothing is a silver bullet,  but every shift you make toward health supports your holistic big picture. Essential Oils and Aromatherapy are a wonderful and fun way to support all over health! Although essential oils have a fragrance, they are not fragrance oils. They have natural chemical components that support your emotions and your immune system and there is much scientific research to back that up!

Honest Aromas is all about using essential oils safely! Always use essential oils in a carrier for ultimate safety! A carrier is anything that you mix the essential oil into before application. In your diffuser, the carrier would be the water that you place the drops into. Diffusing is the safest method of using essential oils!

Other carriers that could be used are; Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Hemp seed oil, Shea butter, Vitamin E, Epsom salt, sea salt, sugar, etc. The carrier puts a protective barrier between your skin, it can help with a fast or slow absorption rate and the carrier, many times, adds an extra therapeutic value!

Here is a great dilution rate rule of thumb:
