What is aromatherapy l.jpg

What is Aromatherapy?

  • "Aromatherapy is a caring, hands-on therapy which seeks to induce relaxation, to increase energy, to reduce the effects of stress and to restore lost balance to mind, body and soul."  Robert Tisserand

  • "Aromatherapy can be defined as the controlled use of essential oils to maintain and promote physical, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing."  Gabriel Mojay

The benefit of an aroma l.jpg

The Benefit of an "Aroma"

  • Essential oils that are inhaled into the lungs are believed to offer both psychological and physical benefits.

  • The aroma of the natural essential oil stimulates the brain to trigger a reaction.

  • The natural constituents (naturally occurring chemicals) of the essential oil are drawn into the lungs and can also supply physical benefit.

Common Treatment Techniques

  • Direct Application – The technique entails adding a few drops of the oil to a carrier oil, like vegetable oil or safflower oil. This is spread over the body, often through the medium of a massage. Some oils are used specifically for their therapeutic effects on certain parts of the body (rosemary oil to relieve joint and muscle pain, for instance).
