Common Scents

I've decided to break up my garden page, because it was getting lengthy.. There is alot more to aromatherapy than just a list of oils..There are so many ways you can uses aromatherapy. In massage oils, in baths, diffusers.. There are also many books out there on the subject. If you intend to start using essential oils, I reccomend buying a book.. Some oils aren't safe and may irritate the skin. Also, child amounts differ from adult amounts. I am going to include all that on this page, but for right now, all I have is the chart. I will also include some of my favorite recipes and a list of carrier oils. I will try my best to make this section as complete as possible. I hope aromatherapy will help you, the way it helped me.
