Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils. Essential oils are the highly concentrated volatile compounds extracted from medicinal plants. These extracts contain the therapeutic properties of the plant. Essential oils have been used by the ancient cultures of Egypt, Rome, Greece, and India as far back as 1000 B.C.

The scents of these oils are meant to heal the mind, body, and spirit. Aromatherapy affects each person differently. The essential oils draw out healing properties within ourselves, increasing our mood, vitality, and enhancing our skin.


How it Works

The nose is the only direct opening to the brain from the outside of the body. Once a fragrance is inhaled it triggers a nerve impulse that reaches the olfactory (the part of the brain that interprets smell). Neurotransmission occurs firing a message to the other parts of the brain and the rest of the body. Aromatherapy works on your body in two distinct ways. One is through smell and olfaction transmission to the central nervous system. The other is through massage where the compounds of the oils breakdown and cross into the bloodstream. The end result is a physical, mental, or emotional response brought on by a particular fragrance.
