Hello and welcome to my blog.
I started off with this blog with an intention of having multiple authors. Hence the name "The E Homemakers". So, if you want to contribute by writing, or convey a message through my blog, please feel free to contact me anytime. I would only love to have you around my blog. Please do no feel lost if sometime you come here and find the looks changed. I get bored really soon so I keep on adding/subtracting things.
P.S. This is a sticky post. Newer posts begin right after this one.

Aromatherapy can be dangerous!

Its been almost two years since i have been reading and researching aromatherapy/essential oils. I was rather reluctant to begin using it, for i had heard some scary stories about the same. It was of course due to lack of knowledge or should i say lack of "testing-before-using" habit. I dont know about others, but i have this strong habit of testing before using any product over the rugged area of my elbow. It helps me make out if that particular thing suits me.

I had this friend who used some drops of May Chang essential oil directly in her tub water and ended up having her private parts burnt. Another careful habit that i have is, though almost all the web sites recommend using essential oils directly in your bathing water, i dont follow it at all!!! No matter what, even if its just small amount of oil, i blend it with a carrier oil before using it in my bath water. Carrier oils being a little thick and greasy, leaves my skin extra soft and replenished.

So gals, its always better to dilute your essential oils, even if you are using it for a bath.
