Recommendations for aroma therapy oils

Postby TheAnswer » Fri Feb 22, 2013 5:38 pm

I am looking for some aroma therapy oils to help me sleep better/reduce stress/better concentration. Any recommendations? Please include function, price and where I can get them. I saw some in the malls but who prefer recommendations.

Thanks!

Lavendar oil is the usual tried and tested for relaxation.

Bergamot and geranium oils - considered as happy oils

Peppermint and eucalyptus oils - good for those with sensitive nose/ throat. When I had a bout of bad cough last year, was burning the these oils whilst I slept. Helped a lot

If you are a tea drinker, then I will recommend chamomile for better sleep.

Rose buds and rose hips tea leaves for nice rosy complexion.

There is this shop, Perfect Potion at United Sqaure that sells both the oils and tea leaves. I go there for my tea leaves fix. Might want to check it out.

What to pay: Prices depend on ingredients, and the size of bottles, but are very competitive with "name" perfumes.

What kind of a price range are we looking at?
I was quoted $80 for a 10ml bottle. I thought that's a bit too much.

That's way too much! Most good brands are between $30-$40 for 10ml of Ylang Ylang.

What essence oil was that price for? Brand?
