What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic, botanical essential oils in a variety of applications to balance and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit, to alleviate symptoms of dis-ease and positively affect one’s well being.
Essential oils, known as nature’s living energy, are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. They are the life force and immune system of the plant. Using a individualized blend that address the health issues and conditions presented, the therapeutic-grade essential oils are applied topically, diffused, inhaled or ingested using the French Model.
While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and their benefits vast—which makes them much more than something that simply smells good.
- can destroy harmful fungi, viruses, and bacteria in the air we breathe as well as inside our bodies. While being deadly to pathogenic microbes, they are harmless and helpful to humans.
- can act like hormones to keep our organs and bodily functions in balance. They can even fill in the differences or stimulate our bodies to produce when our bodies are deficient in manufacturing the hormones we need.
- can elevate our bodily frequencies, helping us to stay healthy and immune to disease. Their vibrations resonate with our tissues in helpful ways according to our intentions and mental focus.
- are nature’s most powerful antioxidants that cleanse free radicals from our systems which helps maintain a state of wellness, slow down the aging process and can extend our life spans.
- work in our limbic systems to help clear negative feelings and blocked emotions, therefore eliminating the root causes of many diseases and conditions.
- support and increase our intuitive powers and sharpen our spiritual awareness, which is why religions all over the world from ancient times to present, diffuse the aromas of essential oils as incense in their sanctuaries in order to facilitate effective meditation and prayer.
Essential oils date back through history as some of the earliest forms for natural healing, playing a prominent role in everyday life. They have since re-emerged as a form of aromatherapy in modern times and through the education of therapeutic grade essential oils. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherapy, massage therapy, emotional health, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions, and much more.
