    What is considered an adverse reaction to an essential oil?

    What is an essential oil adverse reaction? When I was first introduced to essential oils through one of the reps for an MLM essential oil company I had read some posts in a Facebook group about adverse reactions to essential oils. A few different people kept mentioning these things that were happening to them after starting to use essential oils, and the reps kept telling them that those were a coincidence or “completely normal reaction from the body trying something new.” That is an essential adverse reaction.

    Why I became an aromatherapist

    My journey to becoming an aromatherapist About 5 years ago I started looking into more natural ways to treat issues at home. I have never really been a fan of doctors.

It takes 5,000 pounds of rose petals to produce 1 pound of rose oil, and 250 pounds of lavender flowers to produce 1 pound of lavender oil, but it takes 3 tons of Melissa leaves/flowers to produce 1…
