What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy: aro·ma·ther·a·py - noun - The use of volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being.  Aromatherapy is defined as the use of pure, therapeutic grade essential oils to facilitate the health of body, mind and spirit.  Scent is the most enduring of our senses. It has the power to transform our emotions, and heal our bodies. It can take us to another place and time.

Essential Oils
Organic essential oils distilled for therapeutic aromatherapy are potent natural remedies and represent the life force of the plant!  Essential oils and aromatherapy can be very effective for many alternative medicine applications.  But using therapeutic quality organic essential oils is VERY important to obtain good results.

Each of the essential oils used in Aromatherapy can be used either alone or in combinations to create a desired effect.

The aromatherapy oils are found in different parts of the plant such as the flowers, twigs, leaves and bark, or in the rind of fruit. For example, in roses essential oils are found in the flowers, in basil it is in the leaves, in sandalwood in the wood, and so on.

The methods used to extract the essential oil are time consuming and expensive and require a high degree of expertise. Given that it takes in excess of 220 pounds of rose petals to produce only 4 or 5 teaspoonfuls of oil, it is a process probably best left to professionals!

Due to the large quantity of plant material required, pure essential oils are expensive, but they are also highly effective - only a few drops at a time are required to achieve the desired aromatherapy effects.  Synthetic oils are available at a lesser price, but they  do not have the healing aromatherapy powers of the natural oils

Essential oils have an immediate impact on our sense of smell, also known as "olfaction". When an essential oil is inhaled, olfactory receptor cells are stimulated and the impulse is transmitted to the emotional center of the brain, or "limbic system".
