My love for Aromatherapy oils has inspired me for many years.
I was introduced to these aromatic healing oils through choosing natural skin care over chemically produced product, and over time I have learnt more and more about their healing properties and their ability to improve general health and enhance the beauty within.
I have been mixing Aromatherapy oils for years and have used them from stress, aches and pains, period pain, through my pregnancies and with my children.
Over the years I have written down many remedies and recipes and I would like to share them with you weekly, it is difficult to know where to start, so I think I will begin with the basic Aromatherapy oils that you should always have in your home, and how you can use them.
