The results of working with aromatherapy still amaze me and would love to talk with anyone who has questions or needs help finding something pertaining to aromatherapy.
Focusing on "The Fragrant Mind", it is an amazing book! There is so much wonderful information, great recipes for various blends, a fun and enlightening look at the the different invdividual personality types and the different essential oils personality profiles, not to mention wonderful Quick Reference Charts.
This book does so much more than tell about a couple of uses for a few basic essential oils, it shows how essential oils can truly effect our emotional state. It also helps explain why we are drawn more to certain scents, and how our personality plays a big role in this. This book is definitely a must have!
I have just one issue, which I hate to bring up, since I'm an ardent fan of both aromatherapy and Valerie Worwood's books.... CATS (and some other animals as well) are particularly sensitive to essential oils, and I'd recommend you research this on your own and use aromatherapy with caution around cats. Cats are lacking some of the enzymes needed to metabolize the terpenes and phenols in essential oils and some have even been poisoned, while others seem not to be bothered. Oils like pine, cinnamon, citrus oils and others can be toxic to our feline friends.
I was not happy to learn this but I love my cats, so it's better to know. I still use the essential oils, but I just make sure to ventilate the area, keep some parts of my home scent-free (dang) and watch the cats closely. I also don't run the diffuser nonstop as I did before, and I'm using other methods of application (being careful not to pet the cats after touching the oils.) The fact that cats sleep a lot doesn't exactly make it easy to tell what's going on with them...
I did not see this mentioned in the books, although it may be somewhere. It hasn't been widely known, and it's only logical that one would want to scent areas near the litterbox, etc.Read more ›
