AROMATHERAPY ~ WORLD OF SCENTS
A healthy mind influences our total well-being. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils extracted from natural plant material to holistically enhance the body and spirit. Aromatic plants and flowers have been used in traditional healing practices for thousands of years.
Each essential oil is made up of unique chemical components, and this is what gives each oil its own therapeutic properties. Rose is the most complex with over 300 chemical constituents. Essential oils can be 75 to 100 times more concentrated than the herb or plant itself. One drop of essential oil would be equivalent to drinking 30 cups of herbal tea.
No need to take them internally! A topical application and inhalation will disperse the essential oil constituents throughout the body in 15 minutes. Any essential oil can be appied to soles of the feet, 2 or 3 drops per foot!
Whether inhaled or absorbed through the skin, essential oils can have a direct effect on the central nervous, lymphatic, circulatory, musculatory and endocrine systems. Oils can be used to elicit particular responses in the physical body. They can stimulate, calm, or soothe emotions.
Highly concentrated, essential oils have deep penetrative power when applied externally. The life blood of plants, each essential oil has its own vibrational quality, which has a direct effect on the body.
