Hey, DIYers! Ready to learn how to layer scents using organic herbs and essential oils to transform your home into an aromatic retreat?
Aromatherapy is both an art and a science. It’s an art because, as a scent-expert, you’ll know that you’ve created the right blend when you smell it. At the same time, aromatherapy is a science because there is a logic to how aromatherapy works and, once you’ve mastered the process of creating blends, you will be able to easily replicate the experience.
Instead of focusing on the history of aromatherapy, sifting through endless lists of essential oils or looking through a bunch of recipes, DYI Aromatherapy starts with that crucial step that most teachers miss: training your sense of smell so that you can create the perfect scent every time.
Every chapter contains easy-to-follow training exercises designed to make you comfortable with making each type of aromatherapy product…as well as a few recipes to get you started making blends, carpet scents, drawer sachets, potpourri, simple soaps and spritz’s.
And, yes, it all starts with training your nose! Here are a few resources to get you started:
- The basic essential oil shopping list.
- A condensed history of aromatherapy.
- The all important skin patch test.
