Victoria has been guiding me slowly into aromatherapy and I must say I'm pretty astonished. This stuff can really pack a punch. I tried Ylang, Ylang first - two sniffs and I could immediately feel my system settle down - I mean really settle down. I went to sleep and had my first 'nasty' dream in ages. I did wake up quite early however. The next two nights I did a bit less and again it calmed my system down considerably (with some added benefits). Unfortunately I ended up having my reaction that I always do to things that increase my energy or well-being - joints started aching, sensitivities when up, fatigue increased.... and I've cut way back. This just proved to me though that this stuff is powerful! My Dad took two sniffs of Ylang Ylang before bed last night and when he woke up he said he'd had the best night of sleep in a long time - he does not sleep well. I'm quite impressed with aromatherapy so far. I don't know how it works but it certainly seems to.
