Aromatherapy is derived from the ancient practice of using natural plant essences to promote health and well-being. It consists of the use of pure essential oils obtained from a wide assortment of plants, which have been steam distilled or cold-pressed from flowers, fruit, bark, and roots.
Aromatherapy can help ease a wide assortment of ailments; easing aches, pains, and injuries, while also relieving the discomforts of many health problems.
Aromatherapy also acts on the central nervous system, relieving depression and anxiety, reducing stress, relaxing, uplifting, sedating or stimulating, restoring both physical and emotional well-being.
The appropriate oils can have powerful results, both on the body and the spirit. “Fragrance oils,” “perfumes,” and other artificially made substitutes for pure essential oils can not produce the same amazing results.
These essential oils are truly nature’s gift to us.
You might ask “Does Aromatherapy Really Work?”
The answer is YES! Pure essential oils are prescribed in Great Britain and throughout Europe for their medicinal benefits. Modern scientific research has proven the potency and healing qualities of pure essential oils.
Many of the oils have powerful antibacterial and antiviral qualities which, unlike pharmaceutical drugs, do not leave behind dangerous toxins.
“Okay,” you ask, “I want to try some of this stuff. How do I get started?” There are many commonly available books about aromatherapy, as well as many internet sites providing both further information about aromatherapy for the aromatherapist and for the consumer.
