What is Aromatherapy?
In its strictest sense, Aromatherapy is a complementary healing modality, sometimes considered to be the most potent form of herbal medicine.
An official aromatherapy treatment involves the use of pure essential oils for the purpose of triggering positive physical, spiritual and emotional changes within the recipient.
It is carried out using highly concentrated, highly active plant extracts known as Essential Oils.
An aromatherapy treatment can be as involved as a formal massage using a very specific essential oil blend according to the recipient's needs, or it can be as simple as inhaling the aroma as it permeates the air through a vaporizer or diffuser.
In an even more informal setting, the aromatherapy treatment can be as simple as a few drops of a single essential oil, or essential oil blend, either added to bath water, inhaled directly from the bottle or applied topically via herbal poultice.
In addition to their aromatic qualities, aromatherapy oils contain a large number of actives that are beneficial to the skin.
This makes them ideal for adding to skin and body care products to address specific skin imbalances and conditions, while promoting sensations of emotional well-being.
