72 Aromatherapy Recipes On The Go with the Aromahead App!

by Andrea Butje on September 8, 2014

Monkey-app

I created Aromahead’s aromatherapy recipes app based on requests from people who bought my book, Essential Living: Aromatherapy Recipes for Health and Home.

I was constantly getting emails and Facebook messages with requests for more recipes, and most wanted recipes they could have when they were traveling or at work, and especially just “in the moment”.

I decided to create an app so you could have recipes right at your fingertips! There are 72 DIY recipes for natural, effective products made with essential oils. Very few of the app recipes are in the Essential Living book, and many of the app recipes have never been published anywhere.

This app includes ingredients, instructions and notes on use for recipes in Green Cleaning, Cold & Flu, Pain Relief, Rest & Relaxation, Healthy Travel and Emotional Support.

What users are saying about the Aromahead app:

“I appreciate apps that are both useful *and* beautiful. This one is clearly organized and the recipes are easy to follow. The products you end up with are things you use everyday. From cleansers for the sink, to cleansers for the mind, this app supports a healthy life. I am very happy I bought it.” -88lauren

This is an invaluable app to have when not wanting to dig through to find the right recipe at the time! I use it all the time to help myself, family and friends! I love that it was created by an expert aromatherapist!!! Thanks for creating!” -Aromatherapist-in-training

“I’m so in love with this app. It’s very organized, beautiful and informative. I’m so happy to have all this information right at my fingertips. Out of all my apps, this is my favorite. I highly HIGHLY recommend!!!” -MBeds
