Question by the boleyn girl: Does anybody wear aromatherapy oils as perfume?
I usually wear DKNY be delicious but I want to try something more natural and cheaper. im also prone to getting headaches and stress. Does anyone know what are good aromatherapy oils for this? i have heard that ylang ylang and lavender can be good/? any experience or advice greatly appreciated! cheers
Also does anyone know if the scent from wearing these essential oils lasts as long as commercial perfume?

OMG… YES… I use essential oils all the time instead of perfume (I’m allergic to perfume). I use lavendar all the time because I personally like the smell of it, but make sure you dilute them with a carrier oil such as jojoba first otherwise it may irritate your skin. You can pretty much try any kind or combination you like, but it doesn’t last longer than perfume, sorry.
I have used lavendar for headaches, as well as orange, peppermint and sandalwood… they work for me (just depends if it’s daytime or nightime… lavendar is relaxing so if my headache is at night, it will use that, or peppermint if it’s day because it’s uplifting).
I hope some of this helps.
here are a few sites for you to look at for recipes and types of oils. Please make sure you are being safe about it, and GOOD LUCK!
