Using Aromatherapy Essential Oils

For as long as I can remember, I have not been able to use perfume.  It makes me feel ill.  It annoyed my kids, as they don’t seem to have that issue and do enjoy applying scents.  But I’d complain, so they’d have to do it away from home, as though they were using some illicit drug.

But I have discovered that essential oils don’t have that affect on me.  I was delighted to find that if I am giving or receiving a spa-type treatment, that I can freely use essential oils, including using them for aromatherapy.

That makes me wonder what they put in perfumes that turns my stomach like that.  No doubt it’s the chemicals, as I find room deodorizers and air “fresheners” (what a misnomer THAT is) just as nauseating. 

I did some research on using aromatherapy, and the results are in an article on Suite 101:  Using Essential Oils for Aromatherapy.
