Aromatherapy for Natural Living
Hello, my name is Jacqueline Mouton, your Aromatherapy for Natural Living Certified Aromatherapist.
My aromatic journey began not fully understanding what aromatherapy is or how essential oils are used. I thought I was just going to be pouring oils into one another, but I was so wrong.
Have you ever used Chamomile tea to help you sleep?
If so, then you are using natural remedies.
The word aromatherapy can be somewhat misleading. We tend to think of an aroma as just a beautiful fragrance, when in fact there is so much more to understand.
Essential Oil Chemistry? Really …
Studying essential oil chemistry was the turning point for me. I was amazed that a plant can be of the same genus and species, but produce different chemotypes (chemical types), depending on where the plant was grown.
Why does that matter? Because different chemotypes have different medicinal properties & safety concerns.
The all-popular Lavender essential oil is an example, producing very distinct chemotypes, which is why it is so important to know what you are purchasing. For example, Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and Spike Lavender (Lavandula latifolia).
I know, it’s pretty amazing stuff, right?
I find it personally rewarding to take responsibility over mine and my family’s basic health needs, and so being an aromatherapist is a constant source of learning and joy.
