What is aromatherapy?

Originating thousands of years ago, aromatherapy is a type of holistic healing treatment that promotes health maintenance and well being through the use of essential oils. Back in the day, essential oils were believed to boast a vast array of healing potential before chemical drugs were introduced to treat illness. Today, the age-old ritual of aromatherapy is being brought back to life and many are only just now discovering its healing benefits.

How does it work?

Aromatherapy works through smell and skin absorption. It is thought to work by stimulating cell receptors in the nose and skin, which then send signals through the nerves to the part of the brain that controls emotions. Some essential oils can be applied topically in small amounts through body lotions, oils and creams. Most popular, essential oils are inhaled through various methods including through the use of diffusers, facial steamers, bathing salts and more.
