About Haly

Haly JensenHof, MA, RA

I am a Registered Aromatherapist, who also holds a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling. After a successful career as a Licensed mental health therapist I found my true passion and calling in aromatherapy. I am the owner of Your Health Scents, a small clinical aromatherapy practice that specializes in individualized therapeutic blending to assist clients of all ages with physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. In conjunction with my skills as an aromatherapist I use my skills as a mental health therapist in assisting each client to gain a healthy balance, and regulate and maintain overall health.

Currently, I am a Professional Member of the Alliance of International Aromatherapists (AIA) and  served as Chief Editor for NAHA’s The Aromatherapy Journal during 2013 & 2014.  My blog postings include information on true aromatherapy, provide safe use aromatherapy recipes, give tips on using the weeds and plants in your garden to your benefit, and random thoughts about nature, heath, health-care and well being.

I have never been, nor am I now, associated with any essential oil company.  I only use essential oils from reputable companies that promote safe and best practices, and who can provide legitimate Gas Chromatography/ Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) reports on their essential oils.

I live in Torrington, Wyoming with my very supportive husband and three rambunctious terriers.

What is Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is an ancient art and science that strives to promote the health of the body, mind, and spirit through the use of pure, naturally extracted essential oils from plant materials. Essential oils are extracted from the flowers, leaves, fruits, seeds, resins, barks, and stems of many plants. Absolutely no synthetic ingredients are used in aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy is a holistic practice that is employed as a preventative measure, as well as during times of acute and chronic illness or disease. As a holistic practice all areas of an individual’s life are taken into consideration; the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and environmental. Aromatherapy is a unique, natural, and safe approach that is compatible with traditional medical treatments, chiropractic adjustment, massage therapy, physical therapy, and mental health therapy.

Common conditions Aromatherapy can assist with include:

  • Arthritic/Rheumatism conditions
  • Digestive conditions (Heartburn, indigestion, colic, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, etc.)
  • Menopause (Hot flashes, night sweats, emotional fluxuations, etc.)
  • High blood pressure/Low blood pressure
  • Skin conditions (Acne, psoriasis, eczema, shingles, insect bites, wounds, burns, etc.)
  • Insomnia
  • Chronic Fatigue/Fibromyalgia/Neuralgia
  • Colds/Flu/Asthma/Bronchitis
  • Stress/Depression/Anxiety/Emotional issues

New Client Information

It is important for your Aromatherapist to have a detailed health and medical history in order to formulate the most beneficial blend. It is very important for your Aromatherapist to be aware of any allergies you may have, especially to any plants, trees, nuts, grains, herbs, and spices. For example, if you are allergic to ragweed you are likely to be allergic to chamomile. I will ask you to fill out a few simple forms so I can ensure a positive and productive consultation which will greatly benefit me in formulating your specific blend.

Uses for Prairie Evening Primrose (Oenothera albicaulis)

Common Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) is what most people think about when they think of primrose. I guess living on the high desert prairie of Wyoming, I think of the Prairie Evening Primrose (Oenothera albicaulis). There are differences between the two in regard to appearance: evening primrose produces a beautiful yellow flower, while the prairie …
