How to use essential oils in Aromatherapy:

There are many ways to use essential oils to relax your body, mind and spirit.  essential oils

  • Vaporization – When an essential oil is vaporized, the molecules within the vapour are inhaled; the active compounds are thought to enter the body (by absorption through the lungs or olfactory mucosa), and are delivered to the brain via the bloodstream and the olfactory system, where they elicit an emotional or metabolic response.   The use of essential oils via inhalation using a vaporizer (either electric or a candle burner) is very popular.  Drops of oil on a pillow, tissue or swab are also effective.  Citrus oils can stimulate in the morning while lavender can relax at night.
  • Dermal Application –  When essential oils are applied to the skin in a massage blend, the molecules are transported through the dermal layers to the capillaries and the interstitial fluids, and then distributed throughout the body, including the brain.  They interact with the body’s enzymes to have the appropriate effect on the body, mind and emotions; depending on the individual oils chemical constituents.
  • Massage –  Massage is the most common use of essential oils, where essential oils are diluted in a carrier oil or cream. Combining this with the therapeutic power of touch is very effective. The essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream where they have an effect on the biochemistry and systems of the body, as well as relaxing and changing the mood of the recipient through inhalation.  It doesn’t have to be a full body massage – hand, foot or back massage is just as effective.
  • Essential oils can also be used as a compress, a steam inhalation, or added to a bath (or foot bath) for a full, relaxing experience.  Room sprays or spritzers are also an effective way of deodorizing or creating a particular atmosphere in a room.

Aromatherapy for holistic healing:

In her clinic, Maree Kendall uses Aromatherapy to make individual blends, creams and mists to suit the needs of her clients.  Combining Aromatherapy and Kinesiology (muscle testing), Maree Kendall uses Aromatic Kinesiology to help clear emotional blocks and bring about a deeper, more profound healing experience.


“I first met Maree when I went to her for aromatherapy massage.  I immediately felt nurtured and special with her use of kinesiology to muscle test which oils would be right for my emotions and state of mind at that visit.  With kinesiology she was able to identify the nameless burdens and bring a sense of calm and serenity through touch and smell.”
