I began blending oils after attending a yoga retreat at Kripalu in the Berkshires. In their bookstore the day I was leaving, I came upon a small, pretty book by Colleen Dodt entitled, The Essential Oils Book - Creating Personal Blends for Mind & Body. I began reading it and thought, I'm going to do this. I had a couple of essential oils I'd gotten in college... the basics - lavender and peppermint. I had a history of asthma, so I wasn't into incense. I liked the clean smell of the oils (and would soon learn the psychosomatic benefit as well). So began a learning curve that will continue throughout my lifetime. I took that book and noted Dodt's recipes, ordering essential oils through a respectful company for the first time. I started small. I knew Mom got headaches. I blended something for her. It helped. I had a friend dealing with depression while going through radiation treatment. I blended something for him. He said it made his skin glow despite his illness, not to mention how the blend eased his emotions. I sought more information on essential oils, going over many books on the subject. Aromatherapists Valerie Worwood and Roberta Wilson influenced me, as well as Valerie Cooksley. I soaked up their knowledge and decided to really invest in a great collection of top quality essential oils and carriers, letting these blends become gifts to all my friends and family (as well as gifts to myself!). Soon I had over a hundred of these tiny, potent bottles and I was concocting several dozen different recipes depending on the needs of myself and others. Their use proved invaluable and the feedback was fantastic! The use of herbs, plants and flowers for mind/body health has been in practice since ancient times. Today, in the interest of our earth, sustainability and non synthetics used in our products, aromatherapy is making a big comeback. If only in a small way, I am happy to share its magic with you.

    I started blending essential oils for myself 15 years ago. The benefit of their use was immediate. There was no going back! breathessential was developed to share recipes using these medicinal oils for the enhancement of mind/body health.
