Two of my favorite sets from Plant Therapy are these ones…(great oils for a beginner, or someone just starting to build their collection)!
One comes with the Aromafuse diffuser, and the other is just the oils! Click the images to read more!
Diffusing essential oils is one of the best ways to get the benefits of them! I highly recommend buying one at the same time you buy essential oils so you always have the option to diffuse. Plant Therapy has some awesome diffusers for decent prices!
Carrier oils are SUPER important when using essential oils. Contrary to popular belief, do not put essential oils on your body without first diluting them in a carrier oil. Essential oils are highly concentrated which means a tiny bit goes a long, long way. A lot of people who haven’t gone through education about aromatherapy use them “neat” (without carrier oil) and post about it social media encouraging others to do the same. That is a big aromatherapy NO-NO. It is dangerous. There are many different carrier oils to choose from, find one you like. Fractionated Coconut Oil is the most popular because it is a very versatile carrier oil without an intense smell. Here I will show you a few time kinds, but once you click through to the website, you can search and see there are MANY to choose.
For beginners I would say this is a great way to get your aromatherapy remedies started! As you play around with these and learn all that you can about the safe use of essential oils, you can buy the extra fun things! Don’t push yourself though! There is no need to rush or buy thousands of dollars worth of stuff!
