What are your favourite Aromatherapy Oils or Essential Oils and why? My favourite at the moment is Lavander Oil because I find that it really mellows me out and relaxes me. Or does any one use Blended Oils?

Clary Sage, it just came to me. I'm going to bloody need it. Actually it cleanses the room of negativity.

I also use Eucalyptus Oil but it reminds me of when I used to had a cold as a kid.

I like to use Incense when I meditate, it seems to create a very relaxing atmosphere for me.

Love Frankincense oil, and my favorite incense stick is Opium. My favorite self lighting powder is a blend called Road Opener.

I like using incense and my hand and dish soaps (Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day) are both aromatherapeutic, the smells just make me giddy!

I like Vetiver but not too much at a time. I love frankincense and geranium.

I like to blend my own oils depending on their purpose

Interesting comments!

I only like 100% natural scents of any kind, and am careful about oils and incense because many of them have artificial (and dangerous) chemicals of one sort or another. I also only like certain scents, but they have to be in the background, not "in your face". I like scents and oils to be faint, not consciously noticeable, which I think allows them to work more effectively.

I like citrus oils and some flower oils. I loathe the heavy, musky scents like Sandalwood. (Sandalwood makes me physically ill.) When I worked at a metaphysical shop, vetiver was a big seller, as were ylang ylang, frankincense and myrrh.

I like the idea of blending one's own oils, but have never used them enough to be familiar with the process.

Btw, Mrs. Meyer's products aren't as natural and "green" as they claim. Many have carcinogenic ingredients. The concept of something being "green" isn't a legal definition. Anyone can say their product is green. All that aside, I find their products to be so heavily scented they just about knock me over, making me quite ill.

I agree. Especially what incense is concerned, as there are big differences in quality. Some are helpful, others can bring the risk of cancer promoting smoke. But also with essential oils, I avoid anything that may contain something artificial, like the air fresheners for cars. Those chemicals are not healthy. If it is an all natural oil, fine. My Favorites are Ylang ylang, rose, cinnamon, and mint, depending on the purpose.
