33 Calming Essential Oils Ebook


This ebook contains a comprehensive list 33 essential oils that have historically been used as sedative and calming agents in aromatherapy and in topical applications.



When the combination is more than the sum of the parts, a synergistic effect takes place.  Mixing together two or more essential oils creates a compound that’s different from any of the component parts, and these blends can be very particular and powerful.

Essential oils can vary widely in their chemical compositions and are made up of an impressive assortment of organic components that are typically categorized into overarching chemical families such as terpenes, alcohols, aldehydes, esters, and phenols. The chemical specification of each essential oil influences the various effects and benefits that are eventually observed.

When making your own therapeutic blends, sometimes more of the essential oil blend is made than is needed at the time.  If so, store the blend in an essential oil safe container for future use.

Always remember that "less is more" in essential oils and very little essential oil is needed in therapeutic blends.
