Essential Oils for Your Valentine!

As an aromatherapist, you learn that there are lots of different ways to blend essential oils. You can blend based on plant part, chemical make up, or scent. I like to choose a mixture of methods, sometimes combining all three, to maximize the potential of the oils.

 When Valentine’s Day rolls around, I think chocolates, flowers, and romance! Try some of these blends to make your day extra special.
