Aromatherapy Providing Solutions to Everyday Problems
Greeting house guest with a room spray or burning candle is commonplace in most homes. While some products promoting sophisticated scents and essential oils have increased the awareness of aromatherapy, not all have been open to the serious side of promoting it’s therapeutic properties.

Candles in beautiful colors and frosted containers provide a wonderful scent and add a sophisticated accent to any room. Not only can we scent our homes, we can also add fragrance to our cars and lockers with sprays and travel friendly devices designed to refresh them anytime and anywhere.
Just imagine having a spritz of grapefruit and tangerine to give you an afternoon pick me up instead of that fifth cup of coffee. Don’t get me wrong, the “aroma” of coffee is a great pick me up also. But drinking to much of it can leave you feeling wired and having you crashing if you take it with too much sugar.
The Art and Science of Aromatherapy
