The power of plants in high quality, bespoke, handmade blends
Aromatherapy is the use of concentrated aromatic plant extracts known as essential oils and is the oldest form of medicine known to man. It has been used for thousands of years and is scientifically proven to promote physical, mental and emotional healing.
The Physiology of Aromatherapy
Plants used in aromatherapy are made up of numerous chemical constituents and a naturally occurring essence, which produce different therapeutic effects due to their properties and ‘life force’.
Essential oils are absorbed into the body either by inhalation or through the skin where they are carried to all the tissues and organs of the body and support holistic healing. Some essential oils have an affinity with particular organs or body systems and are useful for treating specific conditions.
Our sense of smell, the most primitive of all the senses, is linked to the Limbic System of the brain, which is associated with our survival instincts. When essential oils are inhaled they affect our emotions thus causing mood changes by altering the brain chemistry.
In many cases essential oils provide benefits on a physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual level.
