Aromatherapy is the use of natural essential oils used to treat the whole person; in body, mind and spirit, to improve physical and emotional wellbeing.
Each essential oil is made up of a unique ‘botanical cocktail’ of natural compounds, extracted from aromatic plants. It’s this natural chemistry which gives essential oils their powerful scent and therapeutic properties and is what makes Aromatherapy a truly sensory experience. When we breathe in essential oils our brain recognises them as aromas, which can influence the way we feel.
When used safely and in synergy as a blend, essential oils can help to balance our nervous system as we breathe in their beautiful aromas or soothe muscular aches when applied as a remedy to the skin.
