Resourcefulness in making aromatherapy
Of all the forms of alternative healing, aromatherapy is one
of the most popular choices. This is because aromatherapy can
bring about positive effects not only on their physical being
but in their emotional and physical being as well.
Those who are new to aromatherapy are advised to rely on the
experts before using any product. But, for those people who
have been studying aromatherapy for quite some time now, they
should proceed to another level by creating their own
aromatherapy products. Once they try to experiment on things
using their knowledge and experience in aromatherapy, they can
customize products for themselves. They can save lots of money
because they don't need to buy aromatherapy products that can
be quite expensive and can earn money as well if they try to
sell their homemade
and personalized products.
Before you try coming up with your very own aromatherapy
products, you need not only extensive knowledge about them but
also the supplies needed such as measuring items like spoons
and cups, laboratory apparatus like pipettes and stirring rods,
containers and different sizes of funnels. Once you have all
these, you may now proceed to creating your own aromatherapy
The following are just some of the aromatherapy products
that you can start working on:
1. Aromatherapy mouth products. These may
include mouthwashes, gargles, and throat sprays that can kill
odor-causing bacteria that thrive inside the mouth. It can also
treat minor mouth and throat problems. What you need for a
simple aromatherapy gargle or spray is 1/2 teaspoon of salt
dissolves in 1/4 cup water. You can mix it with 1/2 drop of
essential oil that has antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties
like tea tree oil. Once you're done mixing everything together,
shake or stir it using a rod and put in a sealed container.
2. Aromatherapy salve. These can be
primarily used to treat skin problems and conditions such
swelling, scrapes, bruises, cuts, rashes, and insect bites as
well as major skin disorders like psoriasis and eczema. You can
make your own aromatherapy salve by stirring at least 30 drops
of your chosen essential oil with 2 ounces of plain salve.
Using a toothpick, you should mix them both together so the
salve can absorb the properties of the essential oil.
3. Aromatherapy liniment. Liniments are
known to be great in aiding circulation especially when rubbed
on the affected area of the body. These are used to minimize
pains in the muscle and joints by warming the affected nerves.
You can make your own aromatherapy liniment by mixing at least
30 drops of your chosen essential oils with alcohol, vegetable
oil, and vinegar.
