Essential oils for Home Fragrance

Essential oils for Home Fragrance

As an aromatherapist I fragrance my world ( and therapy room ) usingrelax-at-the-retreat natural essential oils rather than synthetic creations. This means that not only does everywhere smell nice but it actually has a healing benefit too, always a bonus!

I’m often asked for blends for diffusers or oil burners so I have chosen a selection to share for various seasons or times, that are easily availableand simple to blend and you can try them out at home.

You can put any of the following blends into an oil burner, diffuser or even on cotton wool and tuck it behind your radiators.

Blend the essential oils, add two tablespoons of vodka then make up to 100ml with water  – pour the mixture into a  spray bottle and use as a room freshener. Shake well before you spray. Also great for fragrancing your car.

Aromatherapists trick:  replace one of the drops of any citrus oil in your blend with Lemongrass to give your aromatherapy blend a longer life and a deeper fragrance.
