Aromatherapy is the systematic use of essential oils for the treatment or prevention of disease. Essential oils have varied properties and once the most appropriate ones are chosen, they are mixed with carrier oils and used as a massage medium as per usual. The essential oils get absorbed into the blood stream and are therefore able to work on all the different systems of the body. They are most effective if administered regularly and as a part of a course of treatments. There is of course also the pleasing effect on the olfactory system by the means of smell bringing sense of luxury into your massage experience.
Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin, and whilst breathing they enter the lungs. These therapeutic constituents next enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they can deliver their beneficial healing powers. Because they are highly concentrated, only a small quantity of essential oil is required to bring about results. They are extracted from a wide variety of plants, fruits, woods, seeds, roots, leaves and flowers from all around the world.
When inhaled they also enter the limbic system where aromas are interpreted by the brain and the physiological response will reflect our individual perception of the aroma. Therefore it is important that the client has proper consultation prior to treatment to ensure the appropriate aroma is selected to ensure a relaxing treatment. Aromatherapy cannot be said to cure in itself – however it has the benefit of stimulating body systems with possible therapeutic benefit. When using good quality essential oils correctly, the soothing combination of beautiful aromas, massage, aromatic baths and other treatments all work to regulate, balance, heal and maintain the entire being by working with nature, and not against it.
The essential oils used within aromatherapy have been tried and tested on humans for thousands of years, and with great success. Therefore, when used correctly we can be absolutely sure of their safety and efficacy without the need to test them further on animals.
