We all know a thing or two about oil and resin from our favourite herbasious green plant.
I know some about Aroma Therapy and medicinal quality essential oils.
There is a store called Sage see www.sagenatural.com that produce and supply these rich pure oils to their clients and us customers. I have several dozens of them. I presently have a large collection of essential oils and use them daily in my diffusers with tea light candles burning beneath. Also mix them in pure almond oil for massage therapy. My first three purchased books from author Valerie Ann Worwood, best selling author of The Fragrant Pharmacy, explain all the uses and benefits of the various oils and how to blend a variety of oils together for greater health.
The Fragrant Mind
The Complete Book Of Essential Oils & Aromatherapy and
Fragrant Sensuality Aromantics and Natures Essential Oils.
But after reading those publications, I felt a greater need of the knowledge and so I felt compelled to dive in deeper, into the subject.
I added more reference material to my growing library. Next was The Compete Incense Book, this shares information on the actual plants and where they originated in the Middle East before Christ. We all remember the gifts of incense to the new born child King? Frankenscense and Mirrh. But what are they, where did they come from...?
Aroma Therapy For Lovers is another small publication, that actually came in a gift box with three samples of oils to use with your partner in the 'love nest'.
Eventually I discovered these next books which were brought into the reading light,
National Geographic Desk Reference to Nature's Medicine by Steven Foster and Rebecca L. Johnston
and I also enjoyed reading
Western Herbs According To Traditional Chinese Medicine A Practitioners Guide, written by Thomas Avery Garran.
Some oils can make you feel more relaxed, while others give you energy and sharper mind. Cleared thinking paths.
Aroma Therapy is a good subject to learn about and discover which oils may be to your liking & body chemistry, making you feel better, help you sleep more fully restful, clear up problems on your skin. Even make your hair healthy. Many many uses, besides feeling-smelling great, & looking swell.
Happy to help others learn about these incredibly beneficial and pure oils and natures healing ~ health benefits.
