Welcome to the Aromatic Wisdom Podcast!
In today’s podcast I’m going to talk about why it is super important to understand the chemistry of each essential oil you are working with, especially if you are making blends for other people.

Smell My Life – This Week’s Aromatic Moment
Every week I share an authentic experience using essential oils in my life. I hope these aromatic moments inspire you to see the possibilities available for improved health and wellbeing when you incorporate essential oils into your life.
This week I felt like I needed a shot of the tropics to relieve the January blues, so I added 3 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil to a wet washcloth and tossed it into the dryer with my sheets and towels. The whole house smelled great!
