Aromatherapy, both a science and an art, is the use of plant-based essential oils and hydrosols to balance the mind, body, and spirit. An essential oil is a volatile liquid extracted from various plant parts. The science refers to an understanding of the therapeutic properties of essential oil through chemistry. The art is bringing essential oils together in a blend to enhance their therapeutic effect. Many ancient cultures used plant aromatics as incense, salves, unguents, natural perfumes, and distilled waters for the purpose of health. Today’s therapists can draw from the ancient example to restore not only their client’s well-being and vitality, but also their own. Essential oils help us feel good about ourselves. They can assist healing and restore a sense of well-being to our bodies. The plant oils, as opposed to fragrance oils, harmonize the body and stimulate its natural healing abilities. Stress in small amounts may keep you motivated, but long-term intensity will affect your health.

True aromatherapy, while not a substitute for medical treatment, is a marvelous tool for self-care.  The benefits include:

  • Feeling emotionally balanced

  • Stress reduction

  • Regulation of hormonal output

  • Mood enhancement

  • Healing of bruises, minor cuts and abrasions

  • Reducing headaches

  • Increase circulation
