Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

Exactly what IS Aromatherapy????

Aromatherapy is a branch of herbal based medicines that makes therapeutic use of essential oils for health & well being. It is a natural non-invasive modality designed to affect the whole person, not just symptoms or disease & to assist the body's natural ability to balance, maintain, regulate & heal itself by the correct use of essential oils.

Unfortunately the term has been so overused & trivialized that it is misconstrued as being simply the use of pleasantly scented products! Most countries outside the U.S. hold aromatherapy in very high regard. It is quite economical as one only needs a few drops to help with healing, either in a single essential oil or an essential oil blend.

Aromatherapy can also be referred to essential oil therapy. It seeks to unify body, mind & spirit to enhance the individual's healing process. As a holistic practice, aromatherapy is both a preventative approach, as well as an active method to use during acute & chronic stages of illness or 'dis'-ease.

So basically just because it is scented & makes you feel good or you really like the scent does not mean it's aromatherapy, it actually goes way deeper than that!
