Body Oil

Aromatherapy for Wellness

The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy defines aromatherapy as “the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.” Also known as essential oil therapy, aromatherapy enhances natural well being and can calm, sooth, or invigorate depending on the scent-trigger selected.

You probably already know of the ways in which smells can trigger powerful feelings, whether it be the memories associated with fresh baked cookies or the calm you felt as a child at the scent of your mother’s perfume. Aromatherapy harnesses the power of scent so that its therapeutic benefits may be repeated and used to promote mind and body wellness.

HerbsPro offers over 30 different types of essential oils for use in aromatherapy, as well as other applications, including jasmine and lavender, bergamot and multiple citrus scents.


Essential oils may be taken in through absorption, ingestion, or inhalation. Absorption happens via massage, direct application, and soaking in oil-infused waters. Ingestion, the least used method of transmission, involves adding essential oils to food and should be done with extra care with attention paid to possible contraindications. Inhalation is aided by diffusers and atomizers that help to infuse the air with scent. One of our favorites tips is to use a diffuser in the car for a more pleasant commute.


To learn more about essential oils, from how to select the best ones to promote good body health and address particular concerns, to how to mix and apply essential oils, we recommend one of our Aromatherapy books. You should also look on the packaging or consult expert sources for scents to avoid if you have certain ailments.

Fish Oil to the Rescue

Fish oil is one of the most studied supplements. There is strong evidence of its efficacy in lowering triglyceride levels and thus fighting heart disease, including lowering the likelihood of the onset of heart disease and lessening the impact for those who already have the disease. There is evidence that fish oil can provide relief for those with osteoperosis, cancer, arthritis, ADHD, kidney problems, and even menstrual cramps.

However, some people avoid taking fish oil because of a lasting impressing that “fish equals fishy” and thus that taking fish oil will be unpleasant. Fish oil is so essential to good health that it is worth searching out an option feasible for you and that can make it part of your regular routine.

Most fish oils today in their liquid form include a natural citrus oil additive to improve the taste. You can try PFO Pure Fish Oil from Health from the sun with its orange oil and rosemary extract, or Now Foods Omega-3 Fish Oil Lemon Lemon with its natural lemony taste.


Softgels surround fish oil in an easy-to swallow gel-coated oval so that you never taste the oil itself. They come in multiple sizes so, if swallowing large supplements is a challenge for you, you likely can find a smaller option that meets your needs.

You can even get purified fish oil in gummy form, especially useful for children taking the supplement.
