Aromatherapy is so much more than just a nice scented massage oil! Dating back from the 3rd century people have been harnessing the power of the plants and perfecting it over our existence. Perfumes, spices and medicine, plants have had an impact on our lives. Aromatherapy uses the power of the plants essential oils for a tonic applied to the body. The Aromatherapist has many essential oils to choose from so a consultation into what your concerns or health needs are on the day will determine their selection. Mixing a fresh and different blend on each visit. Essential oils become active in the body, through skin absorption or inhalation, each oil can have a different effect on the body. Massage is used to stimulate or soothe the body and allow for relaxation. During rest the body can heal and repair. The inhalation of the scents have an effect on the brain too, triggering metal health, memory, spiritual connection and mind and body connected awareness. Essential oils have different effect. Some are great to use on skin conditions. Lavender is good on a spot or a burn it has an inflammatory effect. Tea tree has antiseptic properties. Clove is good for toothache. Not all essential oils can be placed directly on the skin as they can become an irritant, they are placed in a carrier oil to remove the irritant effect. Hot and cold compresses can also be great with essential oils placed directly on the area of need. Other oils can be used for pain alleviation as a natural alternative to medicine.
