Aromatherapy Consultation

Aromatherapy is the use of volatile oils (essential oils) extracted from various plant parts such as seeds, fruit peels, barks, flowers, leaves, berries, resins, stems and roots intended for the healing of mind, body and/or spirit.

Various methods of administration can be used with essential oil therapy. It is part of the art and science of aromatherapy for the practitioner to know the proper dosage, dilution, duration and the best route of administration for any given patient based on their condition. Three general administrative routes exist, each with several unique ways to administer the essential oils.

  • Inhalation: Nasal sprays, steam inhalation, room sprays, perfumes, aromatherapy diffusers, potpourri burners
  • Internal: Honey, apple cider vinegar, vegetable oils, lactose or charcoal tablets, capsules, herbal teas, food, suppositories
  • Topical: Massage, compress, on acupuncture points, in various herbal products such as bath salts, salves, lip balms, insect repellents, etc.

The initial aromatherapy consult begins with you filling out a consent form and a detailed health history. This includes information on current symptoms, previous illnesses, general health history and any medications or supplements taken. I will then conduct an in-depth anamnesis (intake) to obtain all the details necessary for creating a personalized essential oil blend to harmonize the body, mind and spirit. This process consists of exploring internal feelings and emotions, relationships, hobbies, work, spirituality and other necessary information for the practitioner to obtain the whole picture of who you are on a deeper level. All of this is necessary not only to establish your areas of concern, but also to determine whether certain essential oils are contraindicated in your essential oil blend.

Next, the practitioner might ask about certain scents you might like or dislike to better asses what types of oils to include or exclude in the custom blend. This might include some sampling of unfamiliar scents, if necessary. Based on the information collected, a “soul portrait” emerges that allows the practitioner to select specific essential oils with properties that match the themes and archetypes from each person’s life. Next, 1 or 2 sample blends are developed to address both the chief complaints as well as your constitution. After you have used the aromatherapy blend for approximately 3 weeks, a follow-up consult of 30 minutes is necessary to assess and re-evaluate to see if the blend should be modified or changed completely before a larger quantity is blended for the next 2-3 months. 3 months from the initial intake you should come back in for another follow-up appointment for additional modifications to your blend, or for a completely new one to be created if many changes and/or improvements with your conditions have occurred with regular use of your custom blend.
