Aromatherapy is the use of essences of fragrant plants for holistic healing and improving health. These essences are more commonly known as essential oils and are found in herbs, plants, flowers, fruits, bark, roots or resin of some trees. Each essential oil possesses specific therapeutic properties which can treat a wide range of physiological and psychological conditions when used in association with massage, inhalation, compresses and baths.
A smell can bring on a flood of memories, influence people’s moods and even affect their work performance. Because the olfactory bulb is part of the brain’s limbic system, an area so closely associated with memory and feeling it is sometimes called the “emotional brain”, smell can call up memories and powerful responses almost instantly.
The essential oils I use are 100% organic and the base oil is an organic light olive oil. Each massage blend is tailor-made, after careful discussion about your specific requirements and particular preferences to scents.
Relaxation and stress relief are the most obvious benefits of aromatherapy but as much as the oils can sedate and calm, others can be used to invigorate and refresh. There are oils that can have a direct affect on the digestive system, others to sharpen the mind when concentrating or studying, some can stimulate the immune system and there are oils that have aphrodisiac properties!
