Aromatherapy is a form of therapy that uses volatile liquid plant materials, known as essential oils, and other scented compounds from plants for the treatment or prevention of diseases. It is a form of complementary therapy designed to treat the whole person and not just the symptom or disease by assisting the body’s natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself.

Essential oils consist of tiny aromatic molecules that are readily absorbed via the skin, which while breathing they enter the lungs. These therapeutic constituents next enter the bloodstream and are carried around the body where they deliver their beneficial healing powers. Because they are highly concentrated, only a small quantity of essential oil is required to bring about results.

When good quality essential oils are used correctly, the soothing combination of beautiful aromas, massage, aromatic baths and other treatments work to regulate, balance, heal and maintain your entire being by working with nature, and not against it.

Today, aromatherapy is one of the most popular of all complementary therapies, offering a wide range of highly effective treatments to both the acute and chronic stages of illness and disease. All the same, regular use of aromatherapy treatments and home-use products can help to strengthen the immune system, thereby establishing a preventative approach to overall health.

One of the reasons that aromatherapy has been so hugely successful is because it uses a holistic approach, whereby the aromatherapist takes into account a person’s medical history, emotional condition, general health and lifestyle before planning a course of treatment. The person is treated whole & complete – not just the symptoms of an illness.
