In Aromatherapy, historically, it has been thought that botanicals and salts or derived essential oils from plants could affect one's mood, alter emotional state of mind and even promote health. Some practitioners even use aromatherapy for medicinal purposes such as anxiety, depressant and healing.
At Mooseberry, we do not make claim to any medicinal uses for essential oils nor do we promote ingesting essential oils orally. However, certain essential oils have been believed since ancient times, to promote physical or emotional well being. For instance, lavender has been widely used as a calming agent,
whereas peppermint has been taught in some eastern practices to lift mood. Oil are often blended to achieve a
desired physiological or psychological effect. Decide for yourself how you would like to use essential oils in your life. Have fun and above all, listen to your body. (Always try any oil on a small patch of skin first or consult medical professionals as appropriate).
Essential oils may be applied in various way including:
By drop directly onto the skin, only when blended with carrier oils
