Welcome to my shop, my name is Laura and I love to study aromatherapy and psychology/sociology. I just think its' fascinating how complex human beings are.
Even though aromatherapy is not legally recognized in the US, there are people who still use essential oils for various reasons. I started using essential oil of lemon for my arthritis several years ago. No it is not a cure but I believe it is better than taking nsaids, with all of their side effects.
Only I did not feel the pain until my joints were rubbing by the time I went to a doctor I was looking at the possibility of surgery. Turned out that a custom made brace worn for a while helped, so the surgery wasn't necessary at least for now.
According to the FDA, I cannot say that any of my products are a cure or a treatment for any medical condition, unless I have a full blown study completed. Not only does a study take a long time they often costs a millions of dollars (that's why medicines are so expensive).
I have been interested in Aromatherapy for several years. The first 3 years all I did was seek out books and web sites to learn. Then I finally decided to take the plunge and do a home study course. Mostly because I learn better when I can go at my own pace. Sometimes that's faster than a class and sometimes it's slower.
Several months ago my lips became very dried and cracked and yes really sore. I later learned that I had acid reflux even though I almost never feel like I have heart burn. This reflux was what caused the damage to my lips. I tried many remedies then finally formulated my own which actually worked in less than 2 days.
You will be able to find information on my techniques for making these products by visiting my blog here at Artfire. I will be adding one at a time as I have time.
So now I am addicted to finding recipes for skin care issues, and I am taking advanced level classes in aromatherapy.
