Your Aromatherapy Career: Using Essential Oils in Hospice Care

If you feel called to a career helping people in hospice care with Aromatherapy, I want to thank you.

This is such a special calling, and a special gift you can offer to the world.

I hope that you know what a profound effect essential oils can have on people in hospice care.

Whether they are going through an end-of-life transition, are in chronic pain, have lost their sense of who they are, deal with emotional imbalances (or mental ones), struggle with depression or anxiety, or something else altogether . . . I have heard so many beautiful reports of Aromatherapy improving people’s quality of life.

I would like to tell you about one of Aromahead Institute’s graduates, Robin Kessler.

Robin graduated from the Aromatherapy Certification Program (ACP) and embarked on an Aromatherapy career using essential oils in hospice care and palliative care.

Choosing the Right Natural Oils for Your Skin

How to Choose Natural Oils for Your Skin to Feel (and Look!) Your Best!

I love all the options we have when making Aromatherapy blends.

There is such a wealth of natural oils for your skin to choose from, as well as butters like cocoa and shea butter. And then, of course, we have plenty of essential oil options. There is so much room for creativity!

With all the options out there, it can be easy to “fall into a pattern” of just working with the same natural oils and butters over and over. And there’s nothing wrong with that—it’s wonderful to continue using a carrier that you know well. You can get to know it even better the more you work with it.

But it’s also fun to “meet” new carriers and change up your blends now and then. I want to tell you about three natural oils for your skin that you may be familiar with, or which may be new to you.

How to Do a Eucalyptus Steam (+ why it works!)

Here’s how to do a Eucalyptus steam safely, so you get all the benefits of the essential oil without having to be concerned.

Eucalyptus is one of the most effective essential oils for issues like colds and coughs. It’s a strong natural immunity booster. (I’ll explain why it works so well after I share how to do a Eucalyptus steam.)

Steam itself has such therapeutic effects, too—it surrounds us, cradling us in nourishing warmth, helping us relax and release tension. Adding a little essential oil to the steam deepens its benefits.

But you don’t have to get in the shower or have a steamy sauna. You can do a “mini-steam” right in your kitchen!

First, fill a bowl with warm, steamy water. Be careful not to burn yourself.
