Children and adults both love Halloween parties – all those costumes and games bring lots of laughter and delight. You can make your guests, children and adults, special cakes and cookies. You can make those treats magical by flavoring your favorite cupcake recipe with a tiny amount of geranium or sandalwood essential oil.
Play your favorite games at the party but add a little bit of aromatherapy drama and flair. Get a piece of self lighting charcoal, the kind sold in specialty stores that stock incense, light it and put it in a heat resistant ash catcher. When the charcoal has started to burn and has a white ash on top, place 2-4 drops of essential oil on it. This will start to billow very fragrant smoke and will impress your Halloween guests. Use a heavy essential oil like patchouli or a woodsy scent like cedarwood. If any of your guests are afraid a real witch is coming, (because of your ghost stories) you can use frankincense to scare away the evil spirits.
