While this video may be titled Aromatherapy, it’s as much about self-massage as it is about treating yourself with essential oils. Valerie Ann Worwood is an excellent guide to the benefits of aromatherapy–using scents to soothe and heal–for the whole family, and the sections on how to give yourself a massage are alone worth the price of this tape. Worwood begins with the mixing of oils. The video sleeve contains a guide to which oils work for specific desired results (… More >>

  1. This has to be the best aromtherapy DVD there is! I can’t begin to tell you how it has changed my life and understanding and knowledge of essential oils. The absolute best!

  2. Way way better than other aromatherapy DVDs. I think the best DVD when it comes to self massage. It can be presented in a livelier manner though.

  3. Having purchased this DVD for my own enlightenment, I found it was something worth sharing with my sisters and friends, all of whom, like myself, have difficulty finding time for relaxation. So, this DVD will be their Christmas gift along with my own massage oil blends – both for face and body, and I am anxious to know what they think. In my opinion, this DVD conveys a sense of caring – through teaching one to take time for self in addition to the wonderful benefits of using essential oils in your home and everyday life. I am not an aromatherapist, nor a massage therapist, however I have been using essential oils to make my own bath and beauty products for some years and recently have begun doing face and self massage. This DVD was very helpful with the techniques of self massage. I do recommend that anyone interested is using essential oils first educate themselves as to which oils are right for them.

    Ms. Worwood’s DVD ranks at the top of my list of beneficial information on aromatherapy and massage therapy (which go hand in hand) and should be enjoyed by anyone with interest in these topics.

  4. Valerie Ann Worwood is an expert on the use of essential oils and has written many helpful books on the subject. In this hour-long instruction DVD, she offers advice on the holistic use of a wide variety of essential oils.

    Through watching this program you learn to make your own massage oils and then a demonstration is given for a full-body massage while a woman is wrapped in a towel. One section – for a few seconds – shows her from the back which may or may not offend viewers. Otherwise, she is mostly demonstrating arm, shoulder, back and leg massage.

    The essential oils discussed include: Lemon, Rosemary, Lavender, Orange, Neroli, Petigrain, Ylang Ylang, Thyme, Chamomile, Clary Sage, Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Rose, Grapefruit, Geranium, Palma Rosa, Bergamot, Frankinsense, Ginger and Spearmint.

    Which oils can you use in a bath?

    What will help aching legs or sore feet at the end of the day?

    How can you make a healing cream for the entire family?

    What will increase overall body tone?

    Valerie answers these questions and more. There is a brief face massage section (with ideas on which oils to use for various skin types) and ideas for using sea salts and essential oils in the bath is also explored. This is probably one of the best introductions to using essential oils in every area of your life.

  5. **Please see my update at the bottom of this review…thanks.

    I am not a seasoned professional at aromatherapy but please correct me if I’m wrong on these points:

    -There was literally more time spent on massaging oneself than on aromatherapy on this DVD

    -Worwood recommended 30 drops of essential oil per one ounce of carrier oil for facial use. That is a high amount of essential oil for the sensitive facial skin.

    -Worwood recommended peppermint as an ingredient in facial massage oil. Peppermint can burn/irritate the skin. Why would anyone put it on their face?

    -She touched the carrier oil bottle against the essential oil bottle when she was mixing them. This “contanimated” the carrier oil which may have gotten a touch of essential oil in it. Why is this a big deal? Think of someone who has critical peanut allergies and you’ll get my point.

    -She stated that heat is necessary to diffuse essential oil. This is wrong. There are atomizers available. Heat even destroys some of the benefits of many essential oils. Hence the “cold pressed” requirement that even she states.

    I was pretty disappointed with this video. I would not recommend it to anyone.

    ***UPDATE

    I underestimated the value of the self-massage section of this DVD. Every one of my clients want’s more massage than they can afford. Getting them to do self-massage is a great way to help them maintain the benefits of my work in between visits. As a self-massage video, this DVD is valuable. As an aromatherapy DVD, it is not valuable.
