Scents For Your Sensibilities

Healing recipes

(please note that many of these recipes come from the book Incense Oils and Brews by Scott Cunningham. Also everyone is welcome to share their own recipes in the comment section…) Please feel free to contact me, or leave a comment/question below!

This month we will focus on healing blends.  Always remember first off, that each person will smell the fragrance differently. To some it might make a headache go away and leave them feeling euphoric. For others the scent could give them that headache if they might be allergic to it. Always go with what works for you, or the person in question. Don’t make yourself go through a headache when there are so many other things to try out there.

There are oils for everything. But let’s just “say” that you have insomnia and you know that chamomile really helps. The problem is that, you can only find the herb, not the oil. Go ahead and create a tea using the little flowers to use in conjunction with your oil scent. Also remember, if you are using an oil to help you sleep, don’t use burning as your way to get the scent. We wouldn’t want to leave a tea lite candle burning as we slept right?
