I am pleased to announced that I have joined the Amrita Aromatherapy Affiliate program!
“AMRITA IS A USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC BUSINESS
In 2001, Amrita became the first essential oil company in the United States to make the transition into carrying certified organic essential oils and become certified as a company. Every product listed on the website as certified organic has been grown, harvested, distilled and handled without chemicals and other toxic ingredients, according to the USDA/NOP standards.
Botanical purity is only the first step when Amrita sources essential oils. To verify purity, Amrita uses gas chromatographic analysis with chiral columns– the most reliable tool for selecting oils that are 100% derived from the botanical species indicated. All 140 essential oils are tested using gas chromatography and other tests.”
As a cancer patient I am very careful about the chemicals I expose myself to, whether it is in personal care products, environmental fragrance or around the house with cleaning products.
My cancer has metasticized to my liver, so I only use small amounts of the safest EOs to aid in relaxation or help set the mood for restful sleep. So the first article I wanted to write about this topic is using essential oils for Home Fragrance!
Most candles and those commercial fragrance products fill the air with toxins, either synthetic fragrances made from petrochemicals or other ingredients designed to make the scent linger in the air and not evaporate as quickly. Those chemicals are linked to diseases like asthma and often cause health problems like headaches, migraine or nausea.
That is where replacing these products with essential oils can be a better, safer, alternative.
A good nights sleep really is critical to maintaining wellness and healing body, mind and spirit so setting the mood for a good nights sleep can be helped with the use of EOs. If you are new to aromatherapy start slow. Example, a couple drops of EOs on a cotton ball on a saucer next to the bed to add a relaxing aroma to the room. Using essential oils this way is like having a candle in the room, or using a lotion that might be fragrances. You are not delivering a “therapeutic” dose to the body, but creating a safe and relaxing environment.
I recommend starting any journey with using essential oils with the very safest, certified organic oil. So one good place to start might be with the USDA Certified Organic Lavandula angustifolia; BULGARIAN LAVENDER OIL. And NEW customers save 10% on Amrita!
“Use essential oils only in diluted form on the skin and never internally. Always be careful when using essential oils with children. Give them only low doses, or better, consult a qualified aromatherapy expert before using. Always use essential oils with care and only under the proper guidance of an expert while pregnant or if you have liver damage, epilepsy, cancer or other serious health problems.”
