I have touched on this before with a stress on how they could be used to control pain today I want to talk about aromatherapy.
We all know that a certain smell can trigger a memory, sometimes good, sometimes bad. But using essential oils you can do many things from reducing your stress (lavender) to improving digestion (peppermint). They also come in many different forms like diffusers to scent the air and roll-ons to ease pain. In some cases, they can also be ingested but that is not recommended unless you use a food-grade oil instead of the raw stuff that is used in diffusers.
Today I decided I was going to pull my diffuser out and experiment with some of the scent combinations. I do not recommend any one company to get your EO's from. The recipe infograph below uses doTerra but I use Anjou which is on Amazon. (I wonder if I should get an associate number I mention them enough on here). If you are curious about other diffuser recipes check out this Pinterest board or this one. If you want to learn a little bit more about them check out this one instead.

I'll let you know at the end of the day what I thought of this set.
