Serious Science for Managing Your Emotions

Jun 3, 2016 by

Recently I spoke at Peerfest, a peer-supported conference for people with lived mental health experiences. I was so thrilled for the opportunity. This is a slide from one of my presentations on emotions and aromatherapy. You can see the different categorize of oils (mints, citrus, spices, florals, herbs, trees and grasses) and the chemical constituents found in those particular categories. You can see how alchohols, ketones, monoterpenes, aldehhydes, phenols, sesquiterpenes, esters and oxides translate into uplifting, energizing, and so on! Some people like to use this chart to narrow down what kinds of oils they will be trying.

Loving Lemon!

Aug 6, 2015 by

I love lemon oil! Did you know it takes 45 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of pure therapeutic grade lemon oil? It’s very potent, cold pressed from the rind. The way I use this oil most is by dripping 10-12 drops in a giant glass water bottle which I use as a replacement for sugary sodas. I love cleaning with it too. I was able to get some crayon off my kid’s chalk board just by dripping some lemon oil on a paper towel and cleaning with that. Amazing oil! The particular lemon oil I use is sourced in Italy.
