The following list can be used to select essences available in the online catalogue for specific needs. For more detail on each essence, click on the name of the oil in the Online Catalogue.

When choosing essences let the sense of smell make the final judgment. Before you add an essence to other essences, smell them together. If the blend smells good, it will work well in the circumstance and be happily accepted by the individual. It is true that "the nose knows" and even the best choice based on logic might not pass this test.

Remember to consult the About Aromatherapy section for guidelines on the proper use of essential oils and contraindications.
