Welcome to Lavender Flame Natural Healing. I am a qualified Aromatherpist and have been practicing aromatherapy for over 10 years. I love essential oils because they not only help to create a relaxing massage, and are absorbed into the skin to heal, but if used in an oil burner, you get the benefit of the scent of the oils and the room smells wonderful. (Be careful around pets, because they have a more sensitive smell than humans - peppermint and clove can be quite irritating to them).
Do not use essential oils during pregnancy, as they can affect the hormones of the body, once absorbed into the skin and circulating throughout the bloodstream.
