Aromatherapy

The use of pure, therapeutic grade essential oils to facilitate the health of body, mind and spirit. An all encompassing treatment, aromatherapy incorporates the senses of touch and smell. The chemistry of the essential oils interacts with our own chemistry to relieve stress, comfort the mind, balance emotions and support numerous physical ailments

Essential Oils

Organic, pure essential oils distilled for therapeutic aromatherapy are potent natural remedies and represent the life force of the plant! Essential oils which are the pure "essence" of a plant, have been found to provide both psychological and physical benefits when used correctly and safely. Essential oils and aromatherapy can be very effective for many alternative medicine applications. But using therapeutic quality organic essential oils is VERY important to obtaining good results. In Europe, a set of standards has been established that outlines the chemical profile and principal constituents that a quality essential oil should have. Known as ANFOR (Association French Normalization Organization Regulation) and ISO (International Standards Organization) standards, these guidelines help buyers differentiate between a therapeutic-grade essential oil and a lower grade oil with similar chemical makeup and fragrance.

The Healing Power of Aromatherapy and Essentials Oils in Reflexology

Aromatherapy uses healing essential oils, nature's versatile fragrances painstakingly extracted from herbal substances/plants, to bring deep and far-reaching changes in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is poised to be a key complementary therapy of the 21st century.

Contemporary healers, therapists, and marketing gurus are grabbing hold of a phenomenon that insects and animals instinctively understand: the power of aroma. Scientists pursue aromachology (the study of scent and its ability to change human behavior) for its role in everything from medicine to marketing, migraines to memory loss, antibacterial to antiviral, and relaxation to revitalization.


The History of Aromatherapy, at a Glance.

The ancestry of aromatherapy goes back some 4,000 years. Ancient Egyptians used aromatic botanicals for massage, embalming, medicine, and cosmetics. Hippocrates himself might have been aromatherapy's first spokesman 2,000 years ago, as he touted the benefits of aromatic massage for physical and emotional well-being. In the 10th century, the Arabian world invented the process of distillation, which allowed more efficient extraction of essential oils. For centuries, cultures around the globe inhaled aromas, drank potions, and wore aromatic amulets to protect them from harm. In the early 1900s, France and England attempted to re-introduce these ancient remedies and help them gain acceptance in the more traditional medical community. This trend continues in France today. Many French doctors prescribe aromatic remedies, pharmacies stock essential oils, and insurance companies pay for the treatment. In the United States, aromatic healing is gaining ground.
