Aromatherapy Tips for Beginners
- Hits: 9959
Never use perfume oils
One of the biggest mistakes people make when starting Aromatherapy is buying Perfume oils to replace Essential oils. Perfume oils generally do not contain any therapeutic benefits and they are used purely for their scent alone. Essential oils are better overall even if you only want to use the oils for their aroma. This is because the Essential oils not only smell nice, but their therapeutic benefits can also help you feel better within yourself.
Do your research
Always reads as much as you can before taking up Aromatherapy. Once you know what you are doing, it really is easy to start out. There are certain safety elements you need to consider due to the Essential oils being highly concentrated and potentially harmful. One of the biggest safety tips is to never use undiluted Essential oils on the skin. Trained Aroma therapists know which oils can be used undiluted and which ones can’t, however as a beginner you don’t yet know which ones are which. This means that as a rule, you should never use any undiluted oils on the skin whilst you are just learning.
