Aromatherapy can be defined as the skilled and controlled use of therapeutic grade essential oils applied for the well-being and physical and emotional health of the individual. Essential oils are extracted from plant essences. This process allows the healing elements of the plants to be extracted into an oil for our use. Do not be confused or fooled for the perfume grade aroma influences that are synthetically made. These may smell nice but provide no healing benefits.
Aromatherapy comes in many forms. It is a complicated science that when applied to one’s lifestyle under the guidance of a trained specialist can bring healing and relaxation to one’s world.
There are many ways to use aromatherapy in one’s life. It can be used in massage, reflexology, aromatic baths, diffused into one’s home and more. In the past, ancient healers and civilizations have used plant essences in rituals and spiritual practices. Many people today are returning to the use of aromas to aide in healing and relaxation and to find health and a new balance in their lives.
