For thousands of years humans have interacted with aromatic plants, flowers and fruits. How often have you rubbed, leaves, flowers or seeds between your fingers and held them up to your nose to smell the wonderful aromas. The world of fragrance is becoming very popular once again, indicating that people are truly appreciating the world of scent.

Aromatherapy is an ancient art blending essential oils derived from roots, leaves, flowers, trees and grasses to create a magical perfumery that can truly change ones lifes. A massage with the right combination of oils can leave one feeling energized or relaxed, whatever your body needs.

Meditating with oils or a good quality aromatherapy candle is a very spiritual experience that makes you feel all is well with the world. I recommend you put more of this scent magic into your life so that the plant energy merges with your own. What could be more natural?

Some oils used for meditation are Chamomile, Frankincense, Myrrh, and Sandalwood. Put a few drops of these in a base oil such as Sweet Almond and try combinations until you find the one that makes you feel good. Spray the scent around your room and start you meditation. Enjoy!
