Aromatherapy is the systematic use of volatile plant oils, known as essential oils, for the treatment or prevention of dis-ease. It is a form of complementary therapy designed to treat the whole person, and not just the symptom or dis-ease, by assisting the body's natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself.
Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed through the skin, and enter the lungs through breathing. These therapeutic constituents then enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body, where they can deliver their beneficial healing powers. Since essential oils are highly concentrated, only a small quantity is required to bring about results.
When using good quality essential oils correctly, the soothing combination of beautiful aromas, massage, aromatic baths and other treatments all work to heal your entire being (on physical, mental and emotional levels) by working with nature, and not against it.
Today, aromatherapy is one of the most popular of all complementary therapies, offering a wide range of highly effective treatments for both the acute and chronic stages of illness and dis-ease. At the same time, regular use of aromatherapy treatments and home-use products can help to strengthen the immune system, thereby establishing a preventative approach to overall health.
This natural form of complementary therapy, dating back to ancient times, is being warmly embraced by today's environmentally conscious and caring society, in which people are increasingly unwilling to accept the cruelty inflicted on animals in the unnecessary testing of drugs and beauty products.
The essential oils used within aromatherapy have been tried and tested on humans for thousands of years, and with great success. Therefore, when used correctly we can be absolutely sure of their safety and efficacy.
