Aromatherapy, what is it?

So what really is aromatherapy?  Why do we use it and where does it come from...... 
Definition
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being. It is sometimes used in combination with massage and other therapeutic techniques as part of a holistic treatment approach.
Purpose
Aromatherapy offers diverse physical and psychological benefits, depending on the essential oil or oil combination and method of application used. Some common medicinal properties of essential oils used in aromatherapy include: analgesic, antimicrobial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, sedative, antispasmodic, expectorant, diuretic, and sedative. Essential oils are used to treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions, including, but not limited to, gastrointestinal discomfort, skin conditions, menstrual pain and irregularities, stress-related conditions, mood disorders, circulatory problems, respiratory infections, and wounds.
Origins
Aromatic plants have been employed for their healing, preservative, and pleasurable qualities throughout recorded history in both the East and West. As early as 1500 B.C. the ancient Egyptians used waters, oils, incense, resins, and ointments scented with botanicals for their religious ceremonies.

There is evidence that the Chinese may have recognized the benefits of herbal and aromatic remedies much earlier than this. The oldest known herbal text, Shen Nung's Pen Ts'ao (c. 2700-3000 B.C.) catalogs over 200 botanicals. Ayurveda, a practice of traditional Indian medicine that dates back over 2,500 years, also used aromatic herbs for treatment.

The Romans were well-known for their use of fragrances. They bathed with botanicals and integrated them into their state and religious rituals. So did the Greeks, with a growing awareness of the medicinal properties of herbs, as well. Greek physician and surgeon Pedanios Dioscorides, whose renown herbal text De Materia Medica (60 A.D.) was the standard textbook for Western medicine for 1,500 years, wrote extensively on the medicinal value of botanical aromatics. The Medica contained detailed information on over 500 plants and 4,740 separate medicinal uses for them, including an entire section on aromatics.
Written records of herbal distillation are found as early as the first century A.D., and around 1000 A.D., the noted Arab physician and naturalist Avicenna described the distillation of rose oil from rose petals, and the medicinal properties of essential oils in his writings. However, it wasn't until 1937, when French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé published Aromatherapie: Les Huiles essentielles, hormones végé tales, that aromatherapie, or aromatherapy, was introduced in Europe as a medical discipline. Gattefossé, who was employed by a French perfumeur, discovered the healing properties of lavender oil quite by accident when he suffered a severe burn while working and used the closest available liquid, lavender oil, to soak it in.
In the late 20th century, French physician Jean Valnet used botanical aromatics as a front line treatment for wounded soldiers in World War II. He wrote about his use of essential oils and their healing and antiseptic properties, in his 1964 book Aromatherapie, traitement des maladies par les essences des plantes, which popularized the use of essential oils for medical and psychiatric treatment throughout France. Later, French biochemist Mauguerite Maury popularized the cosmetic benefits of essential oils, and in 1977 Robert Tisserand wrote the first English language book on the subject, The Art of Aromatherapy, which introduced massage as an adjunct treatment to aromatherapy and sparked its popularity in the United Kingdom.
In aromatherapy, essential oils are carefully selected for their medicinal properties. As essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream through application to the skin or inhalation, their active components trigger certain pharmalogical effects (e.g., pain relief).
In addition to physical benefits, aromatherapy has strong psychological benefits. The volatility of an oil, or the speed at which it evaporates in open air, is thought to be linked to the specific psychological effect of an oil. As a rule of thumb, oils that evaporate quickly are considered emotionally uplifting, while slowly-evaporating oils are thought to have a calming effect.

Holiday Shopping #2

Part 1 of Holiday Shopping covered those new to Scentsy with great combine and save packages, expectant mothers and children. Also some ideas for older kids and teens. We continue our holiday shopping with our Scentsy Campus Collection.

What a great idea for the college students in your life. These warmers are perfect for college students because they work great in dorm rooms as most dorms do not allow flames for safety reasons. A Scentsy Campus Collection warmer works great in apartments as well, then you never have to worry about your college student starting a fire with a flame candle. It is so easy to run out the door in a hurry and leave a candle burning, which is also very dangerous. With Scentsy you never have to worry about this.

Next lets shop for that man on your list. Old or young, Scentsy has a great line called Scentsy Man This line includes one of my favorites, Route 66, which is a mix of citrus, herbs, and musk. Also must tries are Sharp Dressed Man, Hemingway, and Weathered Leather. Weathered Leather by the way is one of the most authentic leather smelling scents I have ever smelled.

 Along with Scentsy Man we also have many warmers that would appeal to men such as the above pictured Angler.



Hope you like my shopping suggestions. Browse my website to see all of what Scentsy offers.

Happy Shopping!

Holiday Scents 2012




Having had the opportunity to try most of these Scentsy Scents in the new 2012 Fall/Winter catalog, I wanted to provide you  with some  favorites. If you are trying to find some great candle scents for the upcoming holidays you will find them right here!


An absolute favorite Scentsy scent this fall is Mandarin Moon. Mandarin Moon screams fall with its cinnamon, ginger, and orange. You can not go wrong with this Fall candle scent. Every time you put Mandarin Moon into a warmer you get a sense of comfort and familiarness that I can not quite put my finger on. This should be your go to Scentsy scent these days.

Another favorite is Apple Press. Apple Press is the ultimate Apple candle scent! If you love the scent of Apples you will love this Scentsy scent. It has a hint of pear in it as well, which just enhances the aroma of the apples.


Make Apple Press even better ( if that is possible) by mixing it with Mandarin Moon (1/2 cube of each), and this Scentsy recipe is amazing! Combining Apple Press with Mandarin Moon takes the scent from an excellent Fall candle scent to an excellent Holiday scent. Use this mix throughout the holiday season. It is one of those candle scents that puts a smile on your face as soon as you smell it.




An ultimate Christmas candle scent from Scentsy is Christmas Cottage .It is still a bit too early to warm a scent for Christmas. . Christmas Cottage makes me want to drag the Christmas tree out and turn on It's a Wonderful Life and decorate the tree.
Christmas Cottage combines oranges, raspberries, cloves, and spices into a wonderful Scentsy scent that lingers long after you turn your warmer off. The best way to describe Christmas Cottage is to say "it smells like Christmas"!


Another great Scentsy scent is Snowberry,  Snowberry combines loganberry, strawberry, peppermint, and cinnamon into a fresh winter scent that makes me long for our first winter snowfall.  A great winter candle scent. This is another scent that  would smell great mixed with Apple Press . Try that mix out soon.

Successful Vendor Events

5 Tips For Successful Direct Sales Expo Booths

Let's talk a little bit about using expos, trade shows, and fairs to build your direct sales/home party plan business today. First of all, I'll tell you up front that I am not an expert on this topic and I didn't use this model to build either my home party plan business or my multi level marketing business to a great extent. I have done a few trade shows, however, and I picked up some great tips from other direct sellers over the years.
The reason I wanted to write about this topic is because so many of you are using this model to increase your client base and grow your team and there are, in my opinion, some definite dos and don'ts to the whole process. Here are a few tips I think you might find useful:
1. Keep It Simple

Keep your display simple and eye catching. If you overload your space with too much stuff, it's overwhelming to passers by and they may keep walking. What I've noticed when I attend these events is that the booth's that have a crowd of people are generally the ones with virtually no clutter, that compel the passer by to stop and ask more about the product or service.

2. Draw People In

Make sure there's a reason for people to stop by, and more importantly stay, at your booth. People tend to have short attention spans and there is a ton of stimulation at these events. You're basically competing for people's attention. Post a huge question prominently in your booth that compels people to stop and chat. I'll give you an example. When I was an image consultant years ago I did a booth at a women's fair and put the question, "Do You Have A Closet Full Of Clothes And Nothing To Wear?" in huge letters front and center. Every women who passed by wanted to stop and tell me how that described her and her closet. It was a great way to engage my target market in conversation. 

3. Stay Front and Center

Never sit or stand behind your booth. I can't tell you how amazed I am every year at our local county fair when I see direct sellers whom I know have paid handsomely for their booths sitting behind messy displays of their products chatting with each other or reading a book, waiting for me to step up and see if I can get their attention to ask them about their product or opportunity. Just FYI, I've never asked and I've rarely seen anyone else do it either.
You invest good money and serious time into a fair, expo, or trade show booth. So work it! If there's a chair behind your booth when you arrive to set up, move it to the booth next to you and once you've gotten everything set up and stored away, don't walk to the back of your booth again until the end of the day. You want to be out front, chatting, connecting, and working with the participants at the show.
4. Be Smart About Your Drawings

Just about every single week on the Fan Page I have someone ask about how to follow up with the hundreds of leads they've gotten the weekend before at a trade show or expo. I can almost guarantee that a huge percentage of those leads aren't quality, interested people. You're not there at that event to collect names. You're there to collect quality leads. There's a difference. I didn't allow just anyone to stop by with their return address stamp, grab a handful of free candy (and while popular, this is not the smartest way to draw people into your booth), and enter my drawing.
I would engage someone in conversation, find out a little about them and their needs and whether or not my products or opportunity might be a good fit for them, and if they were, I offered to enter them into my drawing. That way, you're sure that every lead you put into your drawing is at least mildly interested in learning more about what you have to offer (and not just the chance of getting something for free). I also made notes on those drawing slips so when I did follow up, I could have an intelligent conversation about our booth conversation and experience. You'll meet lots of people during that event and believe me, you'll be happy to have those notes after the fact.
5. Stay Curious in Your Conversations

As you step into conversation with passers by, start by asking, not telling. Yes, I know you're excited about all that you have to share with them and of course, they're curious about it or they wouldn't be stopping by. But if you start out by barfing a bunch of information all over them about how great your product is or how much money they could make with your opportunity, you're getting off on the wrong foot. Instead, start by asking them a question about their life ("So, where are you from?" "Are you a mom?" "What do you do for a living?") so that you can share your information in a manner that's relevant for them. I promise, you'll have much more productive and meaningful conversations with people if you take this approach.
The key when you're doing a booth at one of these events is to remember that you need to find a way to stand out. You're there in a sea of other direct sellers and retailers and you've got to give people a reason to want to stop and learn more about you. Use these tips and get creative about what else you could do to make your booth and yourself stand out, and please post your ideas below. I'd love to know what you do to make sure your events are a good use of your time and money.

Seasonal sense: Using scent, sight and sound to stimulate holiday spirits



Posted: Tuesday, November 15, 2011 7:00 pm
http://www.sungazette.net/online_features/seasonal/seasonal-sense-using-scent-sight-and-sound-to-stimulate-holiday/article_b3288683-1e50-5dfe-87a7-00eb2ee7d566.html 
(ARA) - From baking cookies with loved ones to caroling through the neighborhood or celebrating with family and friends, fond memories of holiday traditions abound. Each year, scents, sights and sounds promote the season's spirit - continuing long-standing traditions and creating new memories.
Here are some ideas for stimulating your senses and evoking the warmth of the holidays in your home:
Savoring seasonal scents
Home fragrances create a warm, inviting environment during the holidays and all year-round. A whiff of a familiar scent often calls to mind memories of holidays past. The scent of cinnamon and vanilla conjures thoughts of freshly baked cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, while a blend of evergreens, cedar, and musk reminds many of Christmas tree hunting in the woods.
One of the safest ways to recreate holiday memories is with scented,wickless candles With no wick and no flame, there's no worry or mess. After selecting a favorite seasonal fragrance, it's easy to place a cube or two of the scented wax into a decorative, ceramic candle warmer. Just one whiff and you are on your way down memory lane.
"A festive, welcoming atmosphere stimulates our senses and reminds us of holidays past as we celebrate with our family and friends," says Heidi Thompson, president and co-owner of Scentsy, a leader in home fragrance. "A home filled with classic holiday scents not only evokes memories but inspires new seasonal traditions for young families."
Behold the sights
Twinkling lights fill the indoor and outdoor landscape during the holidays. To capture the spirit of the season and add a shimmering glow to any room, consider a simple string or two of miniature lights strung along a mantel or displaying a holiday-themed wickless candle. From snowmen to Santa, there are festive designs in all shapes and sizes to complement any decor.
Sounds of the season
The sounds of the season create happy holiday memories. Adding traditional tunes from Bing Crosby or modern interpretations from Harry Connick, Jr. can set the mood as you decorate your home, entertain dinner guests or simply escape the hustle and bustle of the season. Music creates a cheerful atmosphere and often encourages listeners to sing along.
Enjoying the scents, sights and sounds of the season is simple. To learn more about how to fill your home with festive fragrances and decorate with wickless candles, visit www.Scentsy.net.

Why join my Scentsy Team??????

Scentsy was founded by two Utah homemakers and then sold to Orville and Heidi Thompson.  The Thompson’s moved the company to Meridian, Idaho.  They adopted a direct sales model, and watched revenue climb from $140,000 in 2004 to $535 million in 2011



Many Idaho companies issued a fair number of pink slips during the recession.  But Meridian-based Scentsy didn’t.
Instead, the wickless-candle maker grew.  It’s ranked among the country’s most promising companies by business magazines like Forbes and Inc.com.  In just seven years, Scentsy has become a multimillion dollar enterprise.

Scentsy is very popular in the west and south but is creeping its way to the north east . Being on the ground floor of introducing this wonderful product to millions of people can be very exciting!!!

Some Candle Industry statistics show that..

* Candle sales in the United States is a $2.3 billion industry, NOT including candle accesories.

*Candle sales have grown in the past decade by 10-15%. This increase fueled by the  increased      interest in aromatherapy and home fragrance products.

*Candles are used in 7 out of 10 United States households.

*Manufacturers report that 95% of all candles are purchased by women.

*Both men and women consider candles to be an always-acceptable and highly appreciated gift for a wide variety of occasions. 

*Candle users say they most frequently burn candles in the living room (42%), followed by the kitchen (18%) and the bedroom (13%). 

* Candle purchasers say they view candles as an appropriate gift for the holidays (76%), as a house warming gift (74%), a hostess/dinner party gift (66%), a thank you (61%) and as adult birthday gifts (58%). 

* Both men and women consider candles to be an always-acceptable and highly appreciated gift for a wide variety of occasions. 

*Two-thirds of candle purchasers say they use candles once a week or more often
