Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

How do you make aromatherapy a part of your daily life

Use an Aromatherapy Candle

These candles are all natural, made with plant waxes or beeswax. They contain no toxic petroleum products or chemical additives. The scent comes from pure, natural essential oils. Choosing your mood is as easy as choosing a candle. Choose soothing, relaxing, uplifting or exotic escapism.

Use Aromatherapy Diffusers

There are graceful soapstone diffusers that heat oil and water in a bowl above a tea light candle. There are convenient electric diffusers, portable diffusers, and personal stone diffusers that you can carry with you.
