Using Aromatherapy to enhance your home

Scents have the power to transform our emotions and stimulate our senses. They can relax, invigorate, even heal us. They remind us of the past, ground us in the present, and energize us for the future. It's simple to use them to enhance every room in your home.

Aromatherapy is based on the use of essential oils, which are the highly concentrated essences of aromatic plants. Different essential oils have different properties. If you know their properties, you can use them to make your home an inviting refuge from the world for family and friends.

The easiest way to use essential oils in your home is to add them to a bath, your humidifier or to your vaporizer. Diffusers and candles also work well, as do bulb rings. You can even combine them with water in a spray bottle and mist your furniture, draperies and linens with scent. Or put a few drops on cotton balls and place them in drawers, cabinets and closets.

The Bathroom

For a relaxing evening bath, add up to 10 drops of essential oil to bath water. Neroli, sandalwood, tangerine, lavender and geranium all have soothing and calming properties. For an early morning pick me up, add rosemary, grapefruit, peppermint, lemon or ginger essential oil to a diffuser and let it permeate your bathroom. You'll leave feeling energized!

The Bedroom

If you have trouble sleeping, or just need to relax, put a few drops of chamomile, lavender or neroli oil on a cotton ball and place it inside your pillowcase. Or mist your bed linens with these essential oils diluted with water.

For a romantic evening, try candles scented with geranium, orange and ylang ylang.

Dining Room

If you want to stimulate your guests' appetites in the dining room, fragrance the air with the scents of bergamot, clove and basil. Mix in a few citrus scents to encourage lively conversation.

In General...

A mix of cederwood, pine and rosemary will impart a fresh, clean scent to your home.

Combine vetivert, bergamot, petitgrain and sandalwood to make your home warm and inviting (especially great during colder months.)

Thyme, tea tree, eucalyptus and rose are soothing and antiseptic perfect when nursing ill loved ones.
