let's take a breath and get scentered

Essential oils are the aromatic liquids extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark and roots of herbs, shrubs and trees through distillation.

According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and alchemists were using essential oils thousands of years ago for healing and health. They were once considered more valuable than gold!

Today essential oils have myriad uses and fans of all ages.

They can be used for everything from aromatic foot baths to scented room sprays.

One way to use essential oils is through personal inhalation of a scent from a diffuser.

Our Soul Scentered Aromatherapy Lockets are an excellent diffuser for personal use. Just add your favorite essential oil and and you can inhale the scent through the back of your locket anywhere, anytime, anyplace.  

Many aromatherapy enthusiasts say using a personal inhaler at least 3-4 times a day gives them amazing results - clearer focus, increased relaxation, stress relief, etc.

This list was provided to us by a licensed aromatherapist - not all the concerns listed can be addressed through inhalation of the oil, but many aromatherapy users swear by their effectiveness! We thought our customers might find this list useful.
