    Aromatherapy

    Any of you have any experience with aromatherapy? There are many forms of this and I am generally starting some research to see what therapeutic affects I can use it for. Generally, I'm thinking of using this method primarily to aid in relaxation to allow myself to fall asleep more easily, as well as perhaps have a deeper sleep.

    I'm not using this as an inhaler or massage or any of the more active methods...probably will just use some oil in a humidifier or have something that puts it in the air in my room.

    Just wondering if any of you have used aromatherapy, either successfully or unsuccessfully.

    I was in a aromatherapy steam room on a cruise and within 5 minutes I was asleep, so it probably should help.

    theraputic......

    Hello ElPietro,

    I use a few drops of lavender in the bath at night and sleep like a baby....

    Other oils that act as sedatives you can try are chamomile, sandalwood, sweet marjoram etc.... all are divine !!!!

    Enjoy !

    I'm not sure if there's a technical meaning to "aromatherapy" but I like when a room smells good. I like to burn candles in the house and the scent lingers for quite awhile (you probably wouldn't want to fall asleep with a lit candle burning).

    I could give all to Time except - except
    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    I totally believe in aromatherapy. I love lavender and I put a few drops in my oil burner and the whole room smells so good. Also use your favorite scents. I take some of my body srays, add some water and now your fav scent is how your room smells

    Ok I think I'm officially gay now, I bought some lavender oil off my herb lady and then went into one of those girlie smell stores and bought a candle diffuser thingy.

    The funny thing is the girl I brought to lunch with me ended up spending almost $100 on sprays, just following me into the stores.

    Damn...lavender is pretty girly, too much for me. I have a candle in my bedroom right now that is scented with lemongrass and that is a nice, citrusy, fresh scent that I think is soothing.

    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
