My Review – Tazeka Aromatherapy Product Line

Many years ago, when I was an aromatherapy student, I met some of the most amazing women (and a small handful of men) who were expressing their desire to belong, create and support the aromatherapy community – with particular attention to those of us who held the unequivocal belief that certification is a necessity if you wanted to use essential oils safely, and especially if you wanted to teach, or …Read More

Cerebral circulation of Essential Oils

The olfactory nerve, via scent molecules and their receptors, is our direct connection to information about the “outside” world to the “inside” world in our brain. The olfactory nerve is actually a collection of sensory nerve rootlets that extend down from the olfactory bulb and pass through the many openings of the cribriform plate in the ethmoid bone. These specialized sensory receptive parts of the olfactory nerve are then located …Read More

Olfactory Receptors in New Places

Our sense of smell is one of the oldest of our senses yet the least understood. Two American scientists, Linda B. Buck and Richard Axel, discovered how people can smell and recall about 10,000 different odors in the early 1990’s.  They were awarded the 2004 Nobel Prize.  Their work provides a science based understanding of how people who smell a lilac for example in childhood can recognize the fragrance later in …Read More

Patchouli – why I will always love it.

I will never forget the first time I experienced the aroma of Patchouli.  I was in junior high school, a girl who I thought was “tres cool” walked past me and I was immediately enveloped in a cloud of aroma.  I was smitten, and actually ran after her to ask what she was wearing.  Luckily, for me, she was willingly to share with someone her junior.  Patchouli….. ah, and a love …Read More

What Do Plants Remember

We all know that memories are actively handed down in humans through storytelling, rituals and pictures to mention a few, and this occurs from one generation to the next. But there is a different type of transgenerational memory involving epigenetics, and this is completely different. Epigenetics  is the study of the process by which genetic information is translated into the substance and behavior of an organism; specifically, the study of …Read More

Why Study Aromatherapy

I have avoided writing about this subject for quite sometime now…. probably because I have very strong opinions regarding this topic.  There are many ideas out here in “internetlandia” about whether or not one “needs” formal aromatherapy education, and just how to go about acquiring that education.  In this post I am speaking to those of you out there who have an interest in aromatherapy as a hobby, or as …Read More

Essential Oils and Skin Care – My Workshop Experience with Robert Tisserand

I am a “nerd”, or some might say an “info-hound” by nature. So when I heard that Robert Tisserand, an international speaker, educator and consultant who somehow manages to track all the published essential oil research ( and I will add, I think he probably never sleeps )  – then digests and integrates it, and presents it to the rest of the alternative healing community, and the general public at …Read More
