Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is an art and science that involves the skilled use of specific essential oils extracted from the root, wood, leaf, seed, herb, flower, or fruit for their physical, psychological, and aesthetic influences.

Aromatherapy’s use of highly concentrated plant essences offers a twofold benefit: the essences work on the physical body in the form of relaxation and energy stimulation, and they have widely documented effects on moods, emotions, and behavior. Although aromatherapy should not be considered a miracle cure for serious emotional issues, the use of essential oils may assist, sometimes greatly, with particular emotional issues and emotional states. Additionally, the proper use of essential oils may enhance your emotional outlook and provide support and help balance your emotions during the day. The use of essential oils for emotional well-being is what is often first thought of when someone thinks of the term “aromatherapy.” It is important, therefore, that you treat any list of essential oils used for emotional well-being as a starting point. Within the confines of safety, experiment and utilize those oils that bring about the purpose that you seek.
