Why is essential oil chemistry important? Essential oil chemistry is important because it provides aromatherapists with a breakdown of the naturally-occurring chemical compounds, naturally extracted from plants. The chemistry of an essential oil is analyzed by Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS).

I, like many, have always suffered with terrible allergy symptoms, as well as asthma. My girls used to laugh when I tried to scratch my itchy throat with my tongue which is as futile and awkward as it sounds.

Aroma Notes began back in August 2016, when my daughter came to visit from England and I was studying to become an aromatherapist. I didn’t realize at the time that she had been watching my every move as I worked towards certification.
I did wonder though, why she kept telling me to take pictures of everything I made and write down all the ideas that I shared with her continuously.
She really is lovely to talk to and one of the few people that has always listened with complete patience as I chatted, without end, about all my hopes and dreams.
I love what I do, but I am not so enthusiastic about documenting my every move “socially.” My daughter on the other-hand, is brilliant at it, as so many young people are.
Don’t get me wrong, I am extremely computer-literate and love all the digital what-nots. Just not so great at remembering the hashtags, the pictures, the memes and the never-ending stream of things to do.
Well, one day I came in from work and “Surprise,” my lovely daughter presented me with “Aroma Notes,” on her phone.
As I looked through the website, read the blog posts she had written, and saw the love she had put into this truly amazing thing (all before I had time to cook dinner) I was filled with … well … love … tears … joy … and everything else you can think of.
Today, I am somewhat better at this aromatherapy blog thing. The hashtags, the pictures, the memes and the never-ending stream of things to do, but I would never be here without my lovely daughter by my side, fondly known as eCherie82.
I hope you enjoy the Aroma Notes we share along the way …
