9 Tips For Aromatherapy Newbies

I remember when I fi􀁽rst discovered aromatherapy several years ago. I was fascinated by essential oils and excited to try using them. Looking back, I realize I should have done a bit more research before diving into aromatherapy. I offer you the advice I wish I’d had when I was an aromatherapy newbie.

1. Buy One or Two Aromatherapy Books (or three, four, five............)

Choose one or two books to start your aromatherapy library. Select books that are general resources, which will give you some basic information and help you discover the areas in which you have the most interest. Then grow your library with books that delve into the topics you like more. Remember your library can keep growing and just because you start with a certain way to use your oils doesn't mean you can't venture into different areas later.

2. Join Aromatherapy Discussion Forums

Facebook Groups, Instagram pages and other forums are great resources for aromatherapy newbies. Read past discussions, ask questions, and learn from others. After you have done research to learn the basics, your next best source are other practitioners of the craft.
