      Our family have used Aromas for years. My son uses a different aromatic oil for each subject when he is studying, and then when he writes that subject, he uses it. It is amazing how the aroma’s reconnect him to everything he has learnt, and he does really well.

      Our best aroma is lavender, and whenever we travel we put a drop or 2 on our pillows, and the whole family sleep like babies.
