  1. I'm curious where you get your ideas cause everytime I watch your blends I ve seen them at festivals with different names. So are these original or ideas from other people that sell blends?

  2. I want to love lavender but just don’t seem to like the fragrance and have tried a number of times 😉 any suggestions for a substitute?

    I love the bergamot and orange and vetiver and patchouli… great oils .. diffuse mostly ❤️

    Thanks bunches for all your help 😉

  3. I tried applying one drop of tee tree oil on my pimple, and to my surprise it became bigger the next day. Why is that? Can I try other oils maybe?
    Thanks for your videos 🙂

  4. Thank you so much for covering depression, Andrea. It’s such an important subject to cover, given how harmful allopathic approaches tend to be.

  5. Hey Andrea – firstly, I’d like to send you a big hug and a thank you. I’m slightly obsessed with your YouTube videos. They are fantastic. I’m just getting into making candles and soaps, and the blend of oils I use is very important to me. I also use a diffuser.
    Scent wise, I love geranium, lavender and rosemary together. I find them very relaxing. For stress I often use neroli with geranium.
    Thanks for the link to your classes. I’ll definitely be signing up to at least one of them (I want to learn more about Frankincense and Myrrh, in particular).
    Again, thank you so much. You are fabulous – warm, kind, knowledgeable and keen to share. Who could ask for more? (I’m living in Oxfordshire, in the UK…..and love Neals Yard. Do you know them?)
    Xx

  6. Can I use all the six in one blend.
    I know someone who gets anxious very easily and I think there might be some depression involved. Please help

  7. Patchouli is my favourite. Mostly use on my cold process soap. It definitely a good choice during the shower for relaxing and grounding in warm bath.

  8. Tks for Sharing I like your videos..i have a diffuser where I light a diya inside the diffuser.how much of e oils should I put on top of water

  9. H Andrea! Thamks for your videos and sharing of your knowledge. I have recently gone completely off antidepressants after 25 (!) years. According to the medication industry/drs I would need to continue medicating for the rest of my life. Getting off meds is quite a project as drs or pharmacists have no clue how to do it with success. The trick is to go off VERY slowly and decrease the dosis max 10% at the time and stay at this for more than two weeks before next step. I started at 25 mg of Lexapro and it took me 1 ½ years to completely get off them.
    Now to the use of essential oils. Since I stopped I have felt very up and down with severe mood swings "out of the blue". (This is not strange since medication just put a lid on your core issues and emotions tend to get pent up inside). Dealing with this requires you to be extremely accepting and loving to yourself and one of the ways is to frequently use aroma therapy for comfort and upliftment. Although I have a whole little cabinet with different oils I had completely forgot to incorprate them in my life for a long time and I am so happy this video showed up in my feed yesterday!
    I had orange and bergamot at home, but the bergamot was kind of old, so I used grapefruit instead along with the orange and it really made a huge difference in my mood. I also love to mix lovender and clary sage. Blessings to Andrea and everyone! <3

  10. Omg, I love Vetiver and Patchouli. But I can't seem to make a perfume of it with any staying power..

    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Yeah I’ve been a bit down lately. I’m willing to give it ago. I am also having trouble meditating. Any blends out there for meditation. Thank you 🙏🏼

  12. andrea,your voice is so calming.would you make a guide meditation?
    sorry for my english,im a spanish speaker.greetings from chile.

  13. Thank you for the interesting video. If I do not have patchouli and vetiver essential oils, what replacements can I use. I have a few oils in my basket, but not these 2.

  14. I adore this channel. I have watched many videos but everything inside me leaped as I started watching your channel. Keep up the good work and thank you!

  15. I am a ACP student.
    Thank you so much, for taking the time to do these learning videos. I love them and learn so much from watching them.

  16. That was a very insightful and nuanced overview of some of the ways that depression can show up! It's so true that depression has many faces that each need and deserve to be cared for in different ways.
