I love this article, Linda. I have always relied on aromatherapy for psychological healing. I use only the pure essential oils as you suggest and they are very potent, yet wonderful.
When I am feeling down, I go outside to the little mountain with a spray bottle filled with water. When I spray the desert sage with water, the fragrance that greets me is heavenly and lifts my spirits. After a gentle rain, the entire area has this beautiful fragrance of the sage. It is very healing.
I will have to remember to take more advantage of the healing properties of oils.
Thanks for a great article.
Walk in Peace and Harmony.
