I have worked with my partner, Andrea Butje, for more than a decade on our company, Aromatics International*. This is a company devoted to providing essential oils for Aromatherapy. After pouring many gallons of essential oils, you’d think I know how to make a therapeutic blend – think again!
I love the essential oils, which is a good thing since I routinely pour, label and ship them. I love plants, I even make it a point to plant as many aromatic plants as possible in our garden. So, when an acupuncture client complained of digestion difficulties, I thought immediately that an essential oil blend would be a great thing to add to her massage oil. Usually I go find Andrea the Aromatherapy Expert, and ask her to make me a blend. But she was no where to be found – confusion rolled through me. And then I remembered that Andrea has been putting her recipes on the Aromatics International website.
It was one of those moments when I woke up to the resources that are already present to support my life and work. I laughed to myself as I went to the recipes section, looked up “digestive support,” and made a great blend for my client.
So, just a friendly reminder that whether you need an idea for yourself or a client, you can find help at the recipe section of Aromatics International.
*We have sold Aromatics International to a trusted friend who keeps up the good work!
If anyone would like to us to add a recipe to the recipe section at Aromatics International just email Karen with your ideas.
Just finished reading “Accidental Aromatherapy”. Even with years of aromatherapy training, I LOVE going to Andrea’s recipes on on the Aromatics International web site. It is my favorite “cook book”. You and Andrea are the gifts that keep on giving!
