Aromatherapy is the use of plant oils, (called “essential oils”), for improved physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Essential oils are extremely powerful and are the pure essence of the plant. They are often referred to as nature’s living energy or medicine— and can provide tremendous psychological and physical benefits when used correctly.
I have found that by applying specific essential oils to my wrists or feet or simply distilling in the room, I can easily and almost instantly change my mood, energy and emotions! I use them ALL THE TIME…but please note, not all essential oils are created equal and the brand you chose will determine the effectiveness of the desired results!
Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.
Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.
That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.
What Are Essential Oils?
If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.
How Do I Use Essential Oils?
Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:
Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.
