Essential Oils

Postby thrawtsom on Mon May 28, 2012 7:53 am

I am looking for a quality essential oil. Several of my peers go on and on about Young Living oil, but I read some not very flattering info about Young that gives me pause to do business with him. I have not heard anything bad about the oils, so I dont think my friends that use them are causing harm by using them, but I don't think they are any better than another maker that doesn't cost nearly as much.

Is one oil marked "therapeutic grade", better than another?

I've just ordered a sample kit from http://www.newdirectionsaromatics.com. They seem to have a lot of info about the oil and their prices are really good. Anyone have experience with them?

Thanks!
A.

What kind of training in the therapeutic use of essential oils have you had? If the answer is "none", I advise against adding this to your practice. If the answer is "minimal", I advise against adding it to your practice. Essential oils, like anything else that can be used for therapy, may cause unexpected negative side effects if used poorly. All of the well-trained aromatherapists that I know strongly advise getting some good, thorough training before bringing them into a massage practice.

:iagree:
Also, there is no such thing as therapeutic grade essential oils.
