How To Use Aromatherapy and Essential Oils For Business Success
Last week I wrote all about about developing a positive mind-set for yourself to ensure your business has the very best chance of success. This week I’m going to be sharing 5 of the best alternative therapies you can use to ensure you can activate that mind-set whenever and wherever you go.
Today I’m going to share some fabulous ideas for using Aromatherapy and Essential Oils in your business so you can feel inspired, energised or relaxed, whenever and wherever you need to.
Why Essential Oils?
Essential oils are extracted from flowers, grasses, fruits, leaves and roots and we already use them extensively in food, cosmetics and even in prescribed orthodox Western medicines. It makes sense then that we’d use them in our own environment to improve our own well being any time we need to doesn’t it?
If you want to take control of your life and your environment whilst you working and enjoy real business success you should make sure you have a basic collection of essential oils in your home:

How To Use Your Essential Oil Blends
Once you have created your blends you can use them in many different ways to achieve fabulous results.
There are a number of ways of using your essential oils blends to create the desired effect in the room you are working in.
If you are using an essential oil vaporiser add 1 – 6 drops of your blend to the water and light the candle underneath to create the effect you desire.
If you are using a diffuser, add 1 – 9 drops to the unit and if you are creating a room spray, add 4 drops to 300ml of water.
Massage and Bath Oils:
Essential oils are too strong to use directly on your skin so you need to dilute them in base oil. Sweet Almond oil is great base oil and as a guide you should add 4 – 10 drops of your essential oil blend to 10ml of base oil.
You can massage this oil in to your skin or add up to 8 drops to your bath.
So, there you are. Some lovely ways to create beautiful environment to work in and to nurture your body and your mind so you can make your business the success you deserve.
