Aromatherapy

WHAT IS IT?

 

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Occasionally called essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils to improve the health of the body and mind. It boosts both physical and emotional health.  Nearly one hundred types of essential oils are available for use.

 

Aromatic oils have been used for thousands of years. Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt, and elsewhere in the world have incorporated aromatic plant components in resins, balms, and oils. These natural substances were used for medical and religious purposes. They were known to have both physical and psychological benefits.

 

 

 

WHY USE IT?

 

Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption using products such as these:

Body oils, creams, or lotions for massage or topical application, diffusers, aromatic spritzers, inhalers, bathing salts, facial steamers, hot and cold compresses, clay masks.
