MAKING SENSE OF YOUR
FASHION SCENTS

  • Do read as much as you can on aromatherapy because there are safety issuesthat you need to be aware of. Read even further on essential oil safety.

  • Don't buy perfume oils thinking they are the same thing as essential oils.Perfume oils do not offer the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. Evenif you only intend on using aromatherapy in your lifestyle for the sheerenjoyment of the aroma, essential oils that are breathed in can offertherapeutic benefits. These benefits do not occur with the use of perfume oils.

  • Do be selective of where you purchase your essential oils because thequality of oils varies from company to company. Be aware that some companieshave made false claims that their oils are undiluted or pure.

  • Don't buy essential oils with rubber glass dropper tops. Essential oilsare very concentrated and will turn the rubber to a gum, which will ruin theoil.

  • Do note the country of origin for the oil. Most good essential oilretailers will readily supply the botanical names and country of origin forthe oils that they sell. When comparing one company's oils with another's,also pay attention to whether they are organic, wild-crafted or ethicallyfarmed.

  • Do store your oils in dark glass (amber or cobalt blue) and in a cool,dark place to avoid deterioration. Look for bottles that contain an orificereducer. An orifice reducer is a small, usually clear insert inside thebottle opening that acts as a dropper. You simply tip the bottle and you candispense the oil drop by drop. Another option is a glass roller ball applicator.

  • Don't pay premium prices for oils that are bottled in clear glass.

  • Do pay special attention to all safety information on all essential oilsthat you use. This is particularly important if you are pregnant or have anymedical condition.

  • Don't experiment with aromatherapy and essential oils near people who are ill.

  • Do learn to compare apples to apples when shopping for oils. Anise,Lavender, Bay, Cedarwood, and Eucalyptus are examples of the common names ofplants used to create essential oils. However, there are different varietiesof each of these plants. To differentiate these varieties, the botanicalLatin name is used to tell them apart. For instance, two different oils arereferred to as "Bay" essential oil, yet they come from two different plants.The properties and aroma of each oil do differ as does the general costbetween the two. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to thebotanical name. In the case of Bay, the common botanical names for the twooils used in this example are Pimenta Racemosa and Laurus Nobilis.

    Summation

    Upon awakening every day, one follows certain daily rituals of life. Unfortunately in our society, the use of synthetic, unnatural products forgrooming habits is the norm today. The problems these can cause arecompounded when you enter the work place and encounter pollution fromindustry, automobiles, new products, out-gassing and cigarette smoke. We maynot be able to change the ways of society or make major changes inenvironmental pollution, but we do have the power to add good, naturalscents into our daily lives and personal habits. By using natural botanical products, you can improve your well-being and reduce damage to the environment.

    Although you have a better chance of appealing people around you withgenuine aromatherapy versus perfume, please be considerate of others'sensitivities. Much like the scenario where bothersome fragrances nearly choke you in an elevator, excessive application of an essential oil can be obnoxious too.

    Gradually incorporate natural botanical products into your daily life. You shall benefit not only your personal health on all three levels of body,mind, and spirit, but also create a healthier habitat. Remember, "educationis the key." Seek your scents according to your aspirations and enjoy!
