Bringing in the New Year With Essential Oils and Aromatherapy

Happy New Year! This photo depicts a beach overlooking the ocean. 2020 is handwritten in the sand.

Planner showing a calendar page for the new yearWishing you a wonderful New Year filled with abundant health, joy and prosperity. In addition to the methods we each use to celebrate and bring in the new year, this is a time that many of us reflect upon the past year and think about plans and expectations for the year up ahead. It's a time where some set personal goals by making ambitious resolutions like improving our fitness, nutrition, spirituality or personal relationships.

Limes growing on treeLime Essential Oil is a beautiful choice for inclusion in room fragrancing/meditation blends for the New Year. Lime Essential Oil is one of the more affordable of oils and is routinely used for its energizing, fresh and cheerful aroma. Lime Essential Oil is also well known in folklore for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and the mind.

Blends #1 and #4 on AromaWeb's Aromatherapy Diffuser Blends page include lime essential oil. AromaWeb's Air Freshener Recipe converts one of the lime diffuser blends into a beautiful room mist that you may customize using other essential oils.

Lime essential oil is strong, and a little goes a long way in diffuser and room fragrancing applications.

New Conifer Essential Oil Guide Now on AromaWeb

Conifer Essential Oil Guide

What a joy it has been to finally prepare and publish a guide to Conifer Essential Oils on AromaWeb. While growing up in Southeastern Michigan, I was able to enjoy spending a lot of time outside in a densely wooded area, savoring the beauty, shade and aroma of the spruce and pine trees. These days, I work very long hours, and I have far less time to explore and forest bathe (see below for more about forest bathing). Mindful diffusion of my conifer essential oils has made such a difference in helping me continue to feel a connection to the forest and these beautiful trees. As primarily invigorating oils, they have been helpful to keep me focused as I prepared this rather detailed guide...
