What if there was a near instant way to experience joy or peace? Or support your overall well-being in a gentle, time-tested way? And it was something you could take with you wherever you go.
I’m not talking about a new discovery… far from it. Humans have been savoring these precious gifts from nature at least since the ancient Egyptians:
…Clay tablets confirm their role in early international trade
…Middle Age religious orders embraced them
…Hippocrates promoted their daily use
…The Chinese used them well over 2,000 years ago
And India’s Ayurvedic medicine still uses them today – they’re that valuable for overall vitality and well-being.
Sounds intriguing, doesn’t it? Whenever I come across a way to support physical, mental and spiritual health that isn’t invasive or costly, it captures my attention. And I believe, as you learn more, you’ll be impressed, too.
It’s Not Hocus-Pocus… There’s Real Science Behind Aromatherapy
While aromatherapy isn’t new, the science surrounding it called psychoneuroimmunology is.
Simply, it’s the study of how your experiences – both good and bad – affect your inner self and your immune health.
Here’s what scientists have discovered so far: When you experience something pleasurable like a soothing massage or the scent of a fragrant flower, your mood lifts and your well-being is positively affected.
Try it for yourself… Watch how your mood – and even your energy – shifts when you cut into a juicy orange or sniff a sprig of mint from your garden.
The most exciting thing researchers have gleaned from this new science, in my opinion, is how we can use aromatherapy in our daily routines to enhance our vitality and well-being, and even our outlook on life.
And now I’m going to show you exactly how to do it…
Tapping Into the Biological Potential of Plants
Aromatherapy allows you to tap into certain specific compounds extracted from the leaves, flowers, fruits, seeds, bark, and roots of plants.
These natural aromatic compounds are called essential oils.
When carefully produced, high-quality essential oils are pure and very concentrated. As little as a single drop can lift your spirit and improve your mood!
There are multiple ways you can experience the potential of these exceptional compounds. Many people like to massage essential oils mixed with a “carrier” oil directly onto their skin. Others like to add them to their bath water or shampoo. Still, others can be used internally, if you’re using a high quality organic, food grade oil.
In just a bit, I’ll be providing you with ideas for using essential oils topically and I’ll even give you some of my favorite “recipes.”
But first I’d like to share with you one of the most powerful ways to use essential oils…
How Essential Oils Can Shift Your Mood and
Vitality Almost Instantaneously…
Of all your five senses, your sense of smell is the fastest way to reach your brain.
With a direct path, the nerve fibers of your olfactory system – or your body’s system for smelling – run straight to the limbic area of your brain.
It’s here in your limbic system where you find direct links to your memories and stored learned responses, emotions, and feelings.
However, your olfactory system involves more than just your brain…
Certain essential oils, such as peppermint, can be absorbed through your nasal cavity and through your bronchial tract and lungs.
These “fast track” delivery systems help explain how your body – and your brain – can respond so quickly to a calming or invigorating essential oil scent!
The Newest Way to Diffuse Essential Oils
There are three common methods for essential oil aromatherapy:
- Heat the essential oil over a candle or light bulb
- Apply a few drops to a piece of cloth
- Use an ultrasonic or nebulizing diffuser
Burning essential oils over a candle or light bulb is the traditional way to disperse the scent of essential oils into the air.
Now there’s a much more efficient way…
We now know that exposing an essential oil to heat can damage some of its fragile, beneficial properties.
With the new generation of diffusers such as the ultrasonic or nebulizing diffuser, your essential oil is dispersed into the air without heating the delicate compound.
With an ultrasonic or “cool mist” diffuser, you simply add your desired number of drops of one or more essential oils to a small reservoir of cold water. Within seconds, you have a cool, scented mist.
However, do check your options before buying a cool mist diffuser… Some models have lights that can’t be turned off at night, a real disadvantage.
Another option is the nebulizing diffuser. This type doesn’t require water to disperse the essential oil – rather the diffuser attaches directly to the bottle of essential oil. Much like the ultrasonic diffuser, it disperses fine particles of the essential oils into your air.
Both the ultrasonic and nebulizing diffusers provide continuous distribution of the essential oil in a way that is easy for your body to absorb, so you experience ultimate benefits. You also are able to enjoy each essential oil’s unique scent.
No matter which way you choose to enjoy your essential oils, there’s something important you need to know about them…
Don’t Be Fooled by “Professional Grade” Fancy-Talk
When shopping for essential oils, you’re likely to see the words “professional grade” on certain products.
You may wonder… Does this mean they are a special grade or a higher quality reserved for professionals?
Manufacturers may want you to believe that, but you need to know there is no official grading system for essential oils. Anyone can label their product “Therapeutic Grade” without meeting any special criteria.
Don’t take their word for it… It’s up to you to be the “grading system” for quality!
When evaluating essential oils, always look at these factors that indicate quality:
- Where are the plants grown? Plants grown in their indigenous regions tend to be healthier. Watch out for “unknown country of origin!”
- Is it the correct species of plant? Watch out for cheaper substitutions. Make sure you’re getting the correct species, especially with lavender. Avoid products that don’t label the botanical name of the plant!
- When is it harvested? When a plant is harvested influences the potency of the valuable constituents in its leaves, stems, and flowers.
- Is it a synthetic fragrance oil or perfume rather than an actual essential oil? There’s a big difference. For true benefits, you want a quality essential oil for its biologically active compounds, or the beneficial properties that make it work, not just for its scent!
- How much does it cost? If it seems like too good of a deal, you’re probably better off avoiding it. High-quality essential oils are responsibly grown and safely extracted without using harmful chemicals. They naturally will cost more.
- How is the essential oil extracted? Look for essential oils that are either cold-pressed or steam distilled rather than extracted with harsh solvents.
- Has it been diluted or mixed with anything else? For purity, look for a 100% essential oil. That’s the only way you know it hasn’t been diluted or adulterated. This is another way price can be a tipoff.
- Do they test their products for purity? Are the essential oils tested for their identity (or verification that the ingredients on the label are correct), purity, quality, and safety? Look for essential tests like Gas Chromatography (GC) and Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR).
- Has it been manufactured in a cGMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practices) facility? Is the manufacturer processing the oils to Food Grade standards? This is especially important for oils used in the kitchen, you want to ensure the manufacturer is adhering to the same strict GMP guidelines that are required for manufacturing the foods you eat.
Now that you know what to look for, let’s cover a few points that may not be so evident…
Beware of Essential Oils That Carry Unwanted, Hidden Surprises
As I’ve just shown you, the quality of essential oils varies widely. You must do your due diligence.
In addition to the factors that indicate quality, check to make sure your essential oils don’t contain these hidden surprises:
- Synthetic ingredients – If you see the word “fragrance,” this almost always means “hidden chemicals.” The fragrance industry uses over 3,100 chemical ingredients!
- GMOs – Beware of genetically modified ingredients. Eucalyptus is one essential oil that is sometimes genetically engineered.
- Chemicals – Harsh chemical solvents used in the extraction process can be potential neurotoxins and can cause skin irritation.
- Pesticides and herbicides – If they are used during growth or processing, they will most likely remain in the oil after steam distillation.
Here’s your best bet for a quality product… In addition to all these criteria, look for the USDA Certified Organic seal! You’ll get a higher standard of product when you go with an organic essential oil.

Plus, the Perfect Carrier Oils…
Essential oils are easily absorbed when applied topically.
However, when using my pure essential oils, because they are so concentrated, mixing them with a “carrier” oil helps safeguard against irritation. This is a very important safeguard.
What is a carrier oil? It’s an oil that can be used to dilute essential oils before they are applied topically in massage and aromatherapy — they help “carry” the essential oil.
My Organic Jojoba, Sunflower, Argan and Rose Hip Seed Oils are the perfect carriers for my Organic Essential Oils. Simply mix one of the carrier oils with a few drops of your favorite Organic Essential Oil and apply topically.
My Organic Jojoba Oil:

Jojoba oil is ideal as a treatment for dry skin, scalp and hair. You can use it in a variety of ways, including to remove your makeup at the end of the day without putting harsh chemicals on your face, or as a pre-shave oil.
My Organic Jojoba Oil can be stored for long periods of time since it does not oxidize or turn rancid as easily as other oils.
My Organic Sunflower Oil:

Use Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil topically on your skin, apply to your scalp to nourish hair and prevent dandruff, and massage onto dry and brittle nails for strength and hydration.
Creating Your Own Custom Aromatherapy Oil
For your safety, there are a few simple rules when mixing your essential oils with any carrier oil, including my Organic Jojoba, Sunflower, Argan and Rose Hip Seed Oils:

- For use on small areas of your body, make a 3% solution by mixing 3 drops of essential oil to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil.

- Topically - essential oils are highly concentrated. When using essential oils topically, ensure they are properly diluted. Applying a high-quality undiluted essential oil directly to the skin may cause irritation.
- Food grade - not all essential oils are recommended for ingestion. Never consume essential oils directly from the bottle. The best method to consume food grade oils is to apply a drop or two to your dish or beverage.
