Organic aromatherapy recipes have been used for centuries and its usage is very diverse and spread all over the world. Hundreds of recipes have been found and perfected over thousands of years. Aromatherapy makes use of essential oils to combat everyday maladies in our lives such as stress, depression, indigestion, menopause, nausea, immune deficiencies, fatigue and numerous others. The following aromatherapy recipes are for your aromatic information.

First things first! Always remember that essential oils are very potent and volatile liquids that can be very harmful if used carelessly. CAUTION: Never apply undiluted oil on the skin without use of carrier oil such as sweet almond oil, hazelnut oil, sunflower oil or grape seed oil. Massage is perhaps the most popular way to use essential oils. It combines the healing art of aromatherapy with the healing art of touch. Self-massage is just as effective as being massaged by another person and lack of a partner is no excuse for not trying these relaxing recipes. As a general rule, always use ten drops of total essential oils per mixture, and keep it around five for maximum effectiveness.

You can always concoct your own innovative recipe using many essential oils that available in the market. You don’t really need a branded expensive aromatherapy product or go to an expensive aromatherapy spa and some wholesale aromatherapy vendors can be too expensive. Here are a few quick, instant and easy natural aromatherapy recipes that can be formulated at your home: · Beat the depression with 3 revitalizing drops of orange essential oil and 2 drops of zesty ginger. · Drive out insomnia with easeful drops of Roman chamomile, clary sage and bergamot oils. · Reduce menstrual cramps with pacifying drops of peppermint, cypress and lavender oils. · Soothe stress with calming drops of Roman chamomile, lavender and vetiver oils. · Enhance memory with stimulating drops of peppermint and lemon oils. · Boost your immune system with protecting drops of eucalyptus, pine and peppermint oils. · Fight acne with toning lavender and antiseptic tea tree oil. · Ease a grieving heart with oils of warm rose and sandalwood. · Disinfect the kitchen sink with the citrus smell of lemon, lime and grapefruit oils.
