The Secret to Using Aromatherapy for Mental Health

…is becoming empowered to make the best blend!

There is a trend in aromatherapy education to simplify things and say that “x” oil works for depression, “x” works for ADD, “x” works for grief, but we believe in elevating the conversation.

There are general claims that can be made. For example, for most people lavender is a great sedative and rosemary can act as a stimulant. But if someone is have a hard time sleeping or focusing, the trick is to first take into account all the factors that are contributing to these issues and create a unique blend that is paired with the desired mental state.

It is for this reason that we will always hesitate to isolate a single essential oil for any particular condition, and continuously refer back to this wider perspective.

Now, we do find the use of charts handy. They are a great way to get us started on making the best blend. Both our Reference Manual and Aromatic Mind Book have detailed charts for reference. But we have found in our practices that clients respond best to a unique blend, rather than a single oil treatment.

This approach takes a little more education, experience and welcomes the wisdom of intuition. It is our goal as educators to help foster these qualities in our students.

Another Turn of the Year

Another Turn of the Year

Many are celebrating Halloween this weekend, but we like to remember the more ancient meanings of this holiday. At the Atlantic Institute, we honor those who came before us with knowledge of the cycles of the year.

November 1 marks the halfway point between the Fall Equinox and the Winter Solstice. It is when we descend into the darkest time of the year. Plants start to slow their growth and shed their leaves, preparing their seeds to lie fallow for the winter. What that means is that it is time for quiet reflection and going inward. One may start to look back on that past year’s activities and decide how best to move forward once the light starts to return in a few months.

Though our modern lives don’t necessarily have to follow these patterns like our ancestors, for most of us the holiday season keeps us so busy that we have to place a hold on many of our projects.

Just like you, we are taking the next few months and making plans to begin in the Spring time. We thrilled to see the growth of our staff-family and have new help with creating ways to better teach you the intuitive science of healing with essential oils.

As Sylla moves closer to retirement and Nyssa continues to build this incredible program her mother created, we are looking for serious students that may one day like to become an aromatherapy educator too.
