I have enjoyed creating aromatherapy blends and using them on my clients. Focusing on the different issues aromatherapy can help treat was very satisfying! I recently used your uplifting blend during a client’s massage. She noticed the aroma right away and remarked that she really loved the way it smelled. I gave her the bottle and she is now using it as a perfume.
