Roses have been associated with the heart for hundreds of years. Aromatherapy helps us to understand the link between the effect of rose on our emotions and popular culture’s association of (red) roses with the heart and with love. The flower’s unfolding, from a bud to an open bloom, is reminiscent of love unfolding. Rose oil is calming and benefits symptoms of anxiety, including palpitations. And, the scent of rose oil is comforting and emotionally supportive.

But what if…

But what if I have a dog? Yes, you can safely use a diffuser with dogs in the house. In fact, dogs can both enjoy and benefit from essential oils if used either in a diffuser or directly on the dog in correct dilution. If you have other small animals in addition to the dog, consider enjoying aromatherapy in other ways than through diffusion.

Lavender continues to be among the more popular essential oils used in aromatherapy. The reasons are clear – it smells wonderful, is safe to use, and provides many benefits beyond the beautiful scent.
Did you know that “true” lavender is actually good for your skin, and has many additional benefits? One of those benefits is the well known calming effect of Lavandula angustifolia. For adults, add 10 to 12 drops of the essential oil to an ounce of sweet almond oil, and put 6-8 drops of that diluted blend into your bath water as you fill the tub. Yum!
