Clovers, loamy soil, wetlands and stone cottages and leprechauns hiding pots of gold come to mind. So do parties with green beer. How about also making your home and yourself smell and feel Irish with a bit of aromatherapy (that can also be used year-round) and essential oils that can be incorporated into colognes, aftershave, creams and other personal care products you can make at home.

Celebrate Saint Patrick Day Using Essential Oils

If you are hosting a St. Patrick’s Day party, consider making a batch of aftershave for men and skin cream or sachets for the ladies as party favors.There is a long tradition behind St.Paddy’s Day and here’s brief synopsis.

The Feast of Saint Patrick, patron saint of Ireland, honors the arrival of the Christian faith in Ireland in the 1700’s and the date of St. Patrick’s death. It has over time become a day that is celebrated by parades, festivalsessential oil diffuser and wearing of green as a symbol of the Irish shamrock. Most of the Irish also attended church services but the feast has evolved, at least in America, as a day to overindulge in alcoholic beverages such as beer tinted green with food coloring and a time to eat too much corn beef and cabbage.

Some cities such as Savannah, Georgia, actually dye the river green for the St. Pat’s holiday. Street parties abound and people have lots of fun wearing green paper party hats, green plastic beads and other similar garb. A tradition is that if caught not wearing green on the holiday, friends can provide pinches.

Celebrate Saint Patrick’s day by turning your Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser to the light setting that glows continually green. Then choose one of the essential oils made from a green plant or herb to bring to mind the green theme. Some of these include basil essential oil to add a bright, energetic scent, lime for a green citrus refreshing aroma, or pine oil for a refreshing scent that fights those late winter colds. Either gender will enjoy these therapeutic grade essential oils choices



Essential Oils Guide For Blending

Another way to deliver essential oils following the green theme of St. Paddy’s day is to partially fill a clear plastic spray bottle with small green stones, fill with water or a carrier oil such as almond oil and add a few drops of essential oils of your choice. Shake to blend well and spray the mixture throughout the house. If you can locate small spray bottles these make great party favors.

You can also use the carrier oil / essential oil mixture to make air fresheners by cutting green felt into the shape of a four-leaf clover and spraying with the aroma mixture. Seal in small plastic bags to keep freshest until give to the men and women attending your party. Be sure to make extra for yourself. They are great tucked into drawers to freshen clothes.

Men love the masculine scent of woody essential oils. Locate small green glass bottles with caps to make great Saint Patrick’s Day party favors for men. Mix a carrier oil of your choice, jojoba oil works well, with pine,

green tea oil, cedar or cypress to the desired strength. Blend and funnel into small bottles. Cap and place out of direct sunlight. Add a thin green ribbon with a paper clover attached if you wish.

Along the same lines, ladies would love a small green bottle of essential oil mixture created from the more feminine scents. Chamomile and lavender make an appealing blend while providing a calming effect. Frankincense and myrrh are especially pleasing.

Whatever essential oils you choose to set the mood for Saint Patrick’ Day or to use in making party favors, the aromas will add a special touch to the day. Enjoy the parties, whether you are the host, attend a friend’s party or join in a street party, have safe, healthy fun on this special Irish-themed day.

Aromatherapy Essential Oil Diffuser Makes Great Valentines Day Gift Wed, 20 Jan 2016 22:21:08 +0000 Valentines Day is once again upon us and you are wondering what to give your special someone this year as a gift to show your love. You should consider giving an Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser because it is a gift that improves health and mood when used with the essential oils that provide special benefits.

Aromatherapy has been around for years, but now it is easy to use and very popular with everyone. Not only does the use of essential oils in a diffuser make the environment of the home smell wonderful, different oils

provide health benefits easily. There’s no need to go to a professional aromatherapist and pay lots of money when you can create aromatherapy in your own home. A free aromatherapy guide explains many of the most common and popular essential oils to help you choose the ones to help you address health and mood issues like lack of energy or sleeping problems.

While essential oils needs to be used safely, and you’ll find advice on safety in previous blog post. The main precaution is not to choose an essential oil made from something that you are known to be allergic to because the oil from that plant or herb will cause the same allergic reaction.

Enhance The Mood On Valentines Day

Choose the essential oil diffuser that has mood lighting for meditation or simply to create a nice ambiance. The seven changing light colors on the aromatherapy diffuser are relaxing and pleasant but you can also choose to set the light so that one color shines constantly or you can disable the light function if you prefer.

You also want to choose an ultrasonic essential oil diffuser that does not require you to buy distilled water. A diffuser made to use regular tap water is much easier to use and you always have that water available. You simply add water to the diffuser to no more than the level indicated and add your choice of one or more essential oils. The diffuser can then be set to provide intermittent mist or constant mist. You control how strong the scent and the amount of oil diffused into the air by adding more or less essential oil. Most people find that three to six drops of essential oil, either one oil or a blend of several oils, is about the strength that is most enjoyable.

Operating safety is another thing to check out when choosing an essential oil diffuser. Once the water and oil has all been disbursed, the diffuser should be able to sense this and shut itself off so that fire can not occur. The Aromasent essential oil diffuser does just that. There’s no need to worry about shutting it off if you happen to fall asleep. In fact, many people love to add lavender oil to induce and improve sleep and allow the diffuser to operate near their bed until it shuts itself off.

You can find essential oil diffusers for Valentines Day gifts that cost a lot of money, but they will not provide any better aromatherapy than the affordable Aromasent diffuser. The sturdy plastic construction is impact resistant should the unit be knocked onto a hard floor.

You’ll also want a spa vapor diffuser that is simple to operate. Only two switches are required to use the Aromasent diffuser; there is a switch for power that also controls mist dispersion and another switch that controls the light function. It’s easy to open and easy to clean. Simply rinse out the reservoir when you want to change to a completely different oil and the unit is ready for use again.

How To Use Your Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser Effectively and Safely Wed, 13 Jan 2016 20:01:59 +0000 You’ve order an Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser with the included eBook Beginners Essential Oil Handbook. In anticipation, you’ve chosen and purchased a few essential oils to use in your diffuser. Now, the diffuser has been delivered to your home. You excitedly open the box and are tempted to just plug it in and figure it out as you go. Don’t do it. You should first read these detailed instructions on how to effectively and safely use the diffuser with your essential oil. After all, you don’t want to damage your new diffuser or use it in a way that could harm you or your family.


Inside The Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser Box

Inside the box you will find the diffuser, a neatly wrapped AC power adapter and a very short set of directions. Here we will go into much more detail so you fully understand the Aromasent Diffuser. essential oil mist diffuser
First of all, look at your diffuser On the top of the diffuser you will see a small opening that is rectangular. There is where the mist comes out of the diffuser. Never cover this opening when the diffuser is in operation.
There are two modes for creating essential oil mist. One mode creates mist for 30 seconds and then stops for 30 seconds. The second mode creates mist continually. Later we’ll get to the best ways to use the Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser’s two mist modes. The button to the left of the word “mist” on the lower front of the diffuser is also the power button. Press the button once to turn the diffuser on in 30 second mist mode. Press the button again to obtain continual mist mode.

The button on the left lower front controls the lighting mode. By default the lights are off. Press the button once to start the lights in rotating mode. This means that the colors will slowly and continually change through the seven available colors. If you prefer that the light remains on a single color or shines a pleasing dim white, simply press the button repeated until the color you want appears and release. That color will remain until you either change lighting modes or turn the diffuser off.
Next, open your Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser by grasping the cone shaped area above the base and gently turning clockwise. Look at the interior. Inside you will see a small cup-like container where the water and essential oils are place. Look carefully and you will see a line inside this reservoir that is the maximum fill marker for placing liquids inside the diffuser. Never fill above this line or you may damage the electronics of the diffuser because moisture may splatter out of the reservoir while it is in operation.
In the center of the reservoir you’ll see a small element that really looks much like a dot. This is where the heat rises into the liquid to diffuse the water and oils mixture.
Many other products require you to purchase purified water for use in the equipment. This can be a hassle, costs money and if you don’t have it on hand you can’t safely use your diffuser. The Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser operates on simple tap water. If you wish to use purified water, you certainly can do so but it is not necessary.
When filling the reservoir with water, you should not get the rest of the equipment wet because it could damage the electronic and short out the electric wiring inside the diffuser. If you get the interior surface of the

Aromasent Tank Reservoir

diffuser damp because of a droplet of water, dry it up immediately. If you spill a large amount of water, unplug the product before drying to prevent potential electric shock.
Once you understand the parts of your Aromasent diffuser, you can get it ready to operate. Turn the diffuser over so you can see the base. Get the electric AC adaptor and plug the round end into the round plug on the bottom of the diffuser. There is an indentation so that the entire adapter end will go in far enough to be flush with the bottom. Be sure you insert the adapter end all the way so your diffuser will sit level on the location where you wish to place it. There is also an indentation to insert the cord so that it does not cause the diffuser to wobble. Plug the electric plug on the other end of the cord into any AC outlet.
Use a small measuring cup with a small amount of water to fill the reservoir to the maximum fill line. It is fine if you put less water into the reservoir but do not overfill it.
From the essential oils (not included) you have purchased either online or at your local health food store or wellness center, select the oil you wish to use during this aromatherapy session or to refresh your home. Of course, you should have performed skin patch tests to ensure you do not have an allergic reaction to the oils you have available (link to safety and skin patch article). Later, you can create blends of oils to obtain the exact benefits or scent that you desire, but for this first operation, let’s use one essential oil.
Your essential oil bottle should have either an eye dropper top or an insert in the bottle opening that only allows one drop at a time to leave the bottle. Essential oil is very strong and small amounts go a long way. Drop into the reservoir just two (2) or three (3) drops of oil. As you use the diffuser, you’ll learn if you prefer more or less oil. Different people have varying abilities to smell and if you do not smell well, you may find that five or even six drops of oil work best for you. If you have a sensitive nose, you may not want more than two (2) drops of oil. Experiment with the amount of oil that is most effective for you. For the first use, try not more than three drops of oil. If this is not enough after the mist begins spraying, you can turn off the diffuser, open it and add more oil, close it and turn it back on.
After filling the reservoir and adding the oil of your choice, place the top portion of the diffuser back on the base and close by gently turning counterclockwise.

adding essential oils to the diffuser

Power the Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser by pressing the button labeled “mist” once. The indicator light will come on. This not only powers the unit but places it in cycling mist mode. If you wish, press the “light” button once and turn on the light in changing light mode or choose a single color light by repeatedly pressing the button until you reach the color you desire.
Now, sit back and relax. Allow the unit to warm the reservoir, a very short time. Look at the mist outlet on the edge of the top of the diffuser and you’ll see a stream of extremely fine mist particles shooting into the air.
A very nice feature of the Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser not on every other similar product is the automatic turn off capability. If the unit operates more than six (6) hours, the liquid will be used up and the reservoir becomes dry. The Aromasent Diffuser senses this condition and automatically turns itself off to prevent any potential fire hazard. If you choose to set up your diffuser in the bedroom with an essential oil that helps you sleep, you do not have to fear. If you sleep more than six (6) hours, you’ll awaken to find the unit in off more. This is a very nice safety feature. Not only does it prevent any potential fire but it prevents the unit from burning out since it is not designed to operate with the reservoir empty.
When you wish to change scents, simply remove the top of the unit and turn it upside down over a sink. If the scent you are removing is strong, refill the reservoir and empty it again. Repeat several times to remove all the previous oil. You can wipe the reservoir out with a small cloth or ear swab if you feel it needs cleaning.
For refreshing the smell of your home and providing mild benefits to health and mood, turn your diffuser on and go about your business. If you wish to enjoy the full benefits of a true aroma scent therapy session, sit or lie near the diffuser so that you breathe more of the mist.
The Aromatherapy Diffuser is great for meditation. Use one of the scents that help focus the brain combined with a scent that relaxes and provides a feeling of serenity. Turn the light on alternating light mode

Closing the oil diffuser lid

and clear your mind as you sit or lie and watch the soothing light display.
The single light mode is great for setting a specific mood. If you need to relax, choose your personal favorite from the blue or purple. If you want to increase energy, select the yellow or red color. If you simply want a nice mood light, choose the color that best suits you at the moment or fits your décor. The white light makes a great night light for guests or children.
Some Quick Fact and Tips:
Do not submerge or allow the interior of the diffuser to get wet.
Do not attempt to operate the unit with an empty reservoir
Use regular tap water
Add one or more essential oils to create the blend you desire. The blended oils offer combined benefits.
For an intense aromatherapy session, sit or lie near the unit
For home refreshing and mild aromatherapy benefits, go about your normal activities.
The unit will automatically shut off if the reservoir runs dry, so feel free to turn it on at bedtime and allow it to run during the night with your favorite sleep enhancing essential oil. It will shut off when empty.
Never obstruct the exit vent where the mist leaves the unit.
You diffuse is not a toy and should be operated only by someone old enough to understand how to safely and effectively operate it.
Clean the reservoir with a soft rag or swab if it appears to have minerals collecting from your water supply. It will not need cleaning often since so little water is used.
To change oils, empty the reservoir by dumping any remaining water/oil mixture in a sink.
Enjoy the benefits of the best aromatherapy essential oil diffuser available. Your Aromasent Essential Oil Diffuser will keep your home smelling fresh and provide health and wellness benefits. Read the included guidebook to learn the benefits from some of the most common and popular essential oils. There are hundreds of oils available in addition to those listed in the Beginners Guide. You can learn about them on the internet or by consulting with a wellness or herbal expert.

Favorite Essential Oils for Men and their Benefits Tue, 05 Jan 2016 19:41:31 +0000 Often, men do not think there is any need for essential oils in their lives. Perhaps this is because their spouse or, if single, the ladies they know frequently use flowery scents and men don’t think that there are any masculine essential oils. This belief is totally incorrect. There are lots of practical and beneficial ways men can incorporate therapeutic grade essential oils into their lives. Today, we will look at the men’s favorite essential oils and the benefits when used in aromatherapy via home diffusers for essential oils or in a useful recipe, or through other means of allowing the tiny particles of the oil to enter the lungs or skin.
Safety should always come first and many essential oils are simply too concentrated to apply directly to the skin. If you are not familiar with safe use of essential oils, please read our information on safety before using any essential oil.

Seven Most Popular Masculine Essential Oils

First, let’s look at essential oils that have a more masculine scent and the benefits of the male favorites. This does not mean that these same oils do not have benefits for ladies; it only means that men are more likely to essential oilsfind the scent of the oil. These are in alphabetical order, not in order of popularity.
Bay – Do not confuse bay essential oil with bay laurel oil. While they smell similar, they are quite different in their benefits. Bay smells spicy and warm. When properly diluted for direct skin application, it helps heal muscle strains and sprains. Research indicates that placing bay oil directly on the skin or diluted too little, it can impact blood clotting, so only use very small amounts of this essential oil in your carrier oil or cream. When used in hair care products, it reduces oil in oily hair and treats dandruff. It improves circulation when used in the proper dilution.
Black Pepper – Although made from black peppercorns, this essential oil will not make you sneeze or cause your eyes to water. It is popular for blending with other essential oils rather than as the single oil in aromatherapy. It blends well with most other oils and enhances their fragrance. When diluted in any carrier oil alone or in a blend, it helps muscle soreness, and minor strains or sprains. It also helps relieve arthritis pain. It tends to produce a feeling of stamina, alertness, focus and energy when used in aromatherapy blends. Because of the energy and alertness benefit, it is not suggested for use near bedtime.
Cypress – Cypress has a wonderful fresh herb-like, woody scent and also blends very well with other essential oils. Benefits of using cypress essential oil in aromatherapy include energy boost and mental clarity and focus. Benefits of using this essential oil in diluted applications on the skin include treatment of hemorrhoids, varicose veins, oily skin, rheumatism and reducing perspiration.
Ginger – This oil smells warm and spicy and is great for blending with other scents. Because good quality ginger essential oil is very strong, it should not be used in homemade mixtures for topical although it is good for circulation. If you wish to use it topically or orally, go to a local educated herbal specialist and request a safely blended mixture or purchase crystalized ginger slices or ginger tea available at grocers and health food shops. When used for aromatherapy in a diffuser ginger improves digestion, relieves nausea and motion sickness. It uplifts your mood and increases energy and improves libido when used in a diffuser.
Patchouli Essential Oil – This rich, earthy fragrance is not only a favorite of men but women love it too. In fact, it has aphrodisiac properties that attract women to men who use this essential oil. It relieves stress and when mixed with a carrier oil to dilute it for application on the skin, it fights athlete’s foot, skin irritation, eczema, and acne. It helps repel insects and increases energy.
Sandalwood – Sandalwood has a woody yet sweet aroma. It is used in aromatherapy for its calming effect. It tends to generate a feeling of peace. It reduces stress, helps relieve mild depression and improves the senses of well-being and self esteem
Vanilla – Vanilla is another absolute and is made from the vanilla bean. It is an aroma everyone is quite familiar with and smells earthy, sweet and sensual. In fact, one of its benefits in aromatherapy is the aphrodisiac effect. Other benefits include antioxidant properties, ant carcinogen, depression relief, mildly sedative, calming effect and can help reduce fever.
Vetiver – This oil has a woody, spicy, smoky and somewhat earthy aroma that is rather strong. It is very good when diluted well or used in small quantities blended with other oils. It reduces anxiety, fear, exhaustion and feelings of anger or insecurity. It is also very grounding and focusing and many people love to use it in a blend of oil in a aromatherapy diffusers for essential oils and meditation, prayer or self affirmation.

What You MUST Know to Use Essential Oil Safely Tue, 23 Jun 2015 18:55:26 +0000 When using essential oils in a diffuser, other device or recipe, you MUST know a few important facts to be safe. The following facts will allow you to do just that.

Using Essential Oils Safety

Dilution: Never use undiluted essential oil directly on the skin. Because the oil is so strong it can produce burning or another negative reaction, up to and including potentially deadly allergic shock. Always dilute the oil in water for diffuser use, a carrier oil or cream such as Shea butter.
Known Allergies: If you have a known allergy, you WILL have an allergic reaction to the essential oil of that substance. No exceptions; and the reaction will most likely be much worse because of the condensed nature of Perfume laboratoryessential oils. A lot of the plant or food to which you are known to be allergic is required to make a single drop of oil so it only makes sense the allergic reaction would be worse.
Skin Test: Perform a safe skin test before using an essential oil you have not used before. To do this, wet a cotton ball and add one drop of oil. Massage the oil into the cotton ball and apply to skin in an inconspicuous spot that you can easily see. Wait 24 to 48 hours to ensure there is no negative reaction such a reddening, itching or appearance of a rash before using the oil.
Read Instructions on Devices: Be sure to completely read instructions included with any diffuser or other device before using. Some diffusers require purified water while others, like the Aromasent, can use plain tap water. Be aware of any precautions included in the instructions such as safe electric practices, what parts of the device should remain dry to ensure the life of your product.
Pricing: When purchasing essential oils, realize that paying more does not mean a better essential oil. Only a few companies in the world mass produce therapeutic quality essential oils because the process is expensiveessential oils and requires vast quantities of plant material. Therefore, the difference in price is largely due to packaging, profit, promotion and public relations. An unusually cheap essential oil, however, may have been diluted with some type of carrier oil or other non-essential product, so avoid any deal that seems too good to be true.

Essential Oil Safety

Storage: Essential oils will last for decades if stored properly. Proper storage means the container should be glass and either amber, brown or blue in color. The top should contain a restrictor so that one drop at a time can be extracted. If a dropper is used, the rubber on the dropper will deteriorate over time and must be replaced to ensure the integrity of the essential oil. Also, keep essential oils in cool, dark locations.
With these simple precautions, you can use essential oils safely and enjoy all the benefits of incorporating essential oils and diffusers in your health and pleasure regimes.

Understanding How Aromatherapy Essential Oils Work ? Thu, 09 Apr 2015 16:42:02 +0000 Do you wonder why aromatherapy essential oils works and has beneficial effects on mood and health? Many people don’t think this process through, but it is all based on human physiology. Let’s look at exactly how aromatherapy works on the human body and brain and investigate in easy to understand terms who this process works.

Recognizing Everyday Aromatherapy Scents

If you have ever had to use an emergency inhaler, smoked a cigarette or even enjoyed the scent of a pleasing dinner, the same physical facts that explain why aromatherapy  uses are in play. The reaction from the brain from inhaling the medication, substance or scent is nearly immediate and strong. This is because the nasal passages, sinuses and lungs deliver the substance, of whatever nature, nearly directly to the bloodstream and result in a rapid change in brain chemistry.

The human brain is amazing. It fully controls the body and the bodily functions. Allowing diffused essential oils into the body cause the brain to have a rapid reaction. This can result in a change in mood, increased essential oilsimmune response or other physical reaction.

If used with safety in mind, the reaction of essential oil aromatherapy can be all positive. But if a person who knows they are allergic to, for example, strawberries were to inhale essential oil created from strawberries, the same allergic reaction would result because the body actually intakes microscopic amounts of the concentrated essential oil, whether it is delivered through a diffuser, in a cosmetic product, cleaning product or from smelling the oil vapors from the bottle. This is the reason safety and allergies must be considered in using aromatherapy essential oils.

If you do not believe this is true, take a scented object in your home such as a candle, laundry soap, bath soap or food – choose one you find pleasing. Inhale the scent, allowing the tiny particles that create that scent into your nose and lungs. You will notice a near immediate flood of memories associated with this scent that lift your mood. This is the same reaction resulting from essential oil aromatherapy. In fact, many of those products in your home that are scented may in fact be scented through the use of essential oil. Try it, you’ll find it very real.

Understanding Why Aromatherapy Works

So, to understand why aromatherapy essential oils works, we just need to understand in simple terms how the human body intakes and reacts to scents created by various plants. If the brain receives a tiny chemical essential oilchange from the right scents, it reacts by altering physical response, either adding energy or relaxing, increasing or decreasing the hunger sensation, delivering a stronger immune response or any of myriad other responses.

Refer to a aromatherapy essential oils guide on the properties and reactions associated with essential oils used in aromatherapy to learn which oils can impact your body in the positive ways you desire. Learn about ways to apply aromatherapy essential oils into your home using a safe aromatherapy diffuser or other products and choose the one you feel best for you.

Five Essential Oil Recipes that Relieve Everyday Stress Wed, 18 Mar 2015 17:22:47 +0000 Essential oil recipes can be created safely at home provided you understand a few facts. First of all, when mixing essential oils recipes you should never be put directly on the skin at full strength; they are simply too concentrated for such use. Secondly, you need to choose a carrier oil if you do wish to apply to the skin. Oil fumes can safely be inhaled from the bottle. Today, perhaps the most popular method of benefiting from is by use of an essential oil diffuser like the Aromasent. Whatever method you choose to distribute the oil to your body is up to you.

If you wish use an essential oil diffuser, you’ll use tap or distilled water (refer to your product’s instructions to be such which is right) instead of any carrier oil. Just blend the oils together, using the given proportions and store in dark glass. To create a safe cream or rub, choose a carrier oil from this list:

Essential Oil Combinations Recipes

Avocado Oil: Full of Vitamin A and great for dry skin and signs of aging
Soya Oil: Rich in Vitamin E
Wheat Germ Oil: Tones and firms skin, great for scar reduction and high in A, B, C and E but has a strong smell
