Kellye, thank you for the picture. I had heard of burners but I wasn't sure what they looked like.
Christy....I'm not sure if the Rosewood helped at all. When I get a migraine...nothing does
But I was/am willing to try anything.)
Marcy...too cool! You make your own bath salts with this? I never thought of it. I know people say to add a few drops to your bathwater but that seems like a great idea. What does the peppermint, spearmint and grapefuit do? Do you mix it all and get one scent or individual ones? I guess, from the smells...it must be to refresh you. The opposite of Lavender.
Eeva, I have never intentionally put any directly on my skin however....I did drop some on my hand last night. It was Lavender so I was ok! And definately.....this is something Whiskers has no access to. It's in little bottles tucked away in my bathroom cabinet. Although last night, with my drops on my facecloth, she benefitted from the aroma! She slept on the foot of the bed and did not move until this morning. Perhaps the aroma relaxed her too?
I also read up a little bit last night after I logged off. Apparently for weight loss (Yep!!! I found something) There is an essential oil called: Bergamot. Apparently when you inhale the aroma, it diminishes your appettite, is a mood-lifter and chases away depression.The result is that you are motivated to continue/stick to your healthy program. I don't know how true that is but....I'd be willing to buy a bottle and carry it around if all I have to do is take a sniff to steer me away from the french fries!!!
On a more serous side....has anyone else heard of this???
Another essential oil for weight loss is Fennel. Same thing. Either carry the bottle and open and inhale the aroma or....add a couple of drops to your tea. It strengthens the stomache and helps damper hunger. It's used to curb appetites. (this one is digestable although I'm iffy on swallowing any of these products).
Also like Eeva says....make sure your bottle says "Pure Essential Oil" otherwise the benefit is not the same.
Eeva....I would be really interested in learning about the benefits of EO and what you use them for.
