In many instances, by simply smelling a certain smell our brains bring to mind a memory we have.
The scent of a favorite perfume might bring to mind the night that you wore it to go watch an opening night performance at the theatre or concert.
Certain cooking scents may remind you of cherished family gatherings and celebrations.
Now you can use aromatherapy products in your home or office to bring pleasant memories to the forefront.
There are a few aromatherapy supplies that you will want to consider to help you get started in adding fragrance to your surroundings.
You will want some essential aromatherapy oil and an aromatherapy diffuser. You may also need a way to heat the oil and a way to disburse the scent.
It is fun to select aromatherapy supplies such as the essential aromatherapy oil.
These aromatherapy products come in a vast array of scents, and you may want to pick up several so that you have options when using your aromatherapy diffuser.
Also, if you choose to use aromatherapy products at work, you will want to be aware that people have different sensitivities to scent, so you might select a lighter fragrance than the one you could use in your more private spaces such as the home.
Once you have selected aromatherapy oil, the next step is to find the perfect aromatherapy diffuser.
Diffusers come in very compact sizes suitable for scenting the air nearby you to larger models designed to add fragrance to a whole room.
Many diffusers offer some type of small basin, into which the essential oil is added.
It is important to note that only a few drops of oil are needed to sweetly scent your air space. After the oil is in place, the scent is better released when the oil is heated.
There are aromatherapy products such as lamp rings that you might want to try. These are round hollow metal or ceramic rings that fit over the top of a light bulb.
The heat from the lamp warms the drops of oil inside the ring, and its subtle fragrance can waft about the area.
Other aromatherapy supplies might be in order, depending on how much space you wish to scent. Tiny vials contain essential oil and, when worn around your neck as a necklace, use body heat to release their aroma.
There are versions for use in cars as well.
Larger units are battery or electricity operated, and these may contain a small fan so that the scent of the oil engulfs the entire room.
