Aromatherapy is a wonderful way to experience the healing powers of nature. Only 100% pure essential oils are used. Essential oils can be used to influence our moods as well as our emotional responses. They can promote calm and tranquility, energy and joy. Below you will find recipes that have been created solely for use in diffusers. You should only add the suggested amount of oils in hot water heated in a diffuser, oil burner or vaporizer.
