The Basics

In increasing numbers, people are returning to a holistic lifestyle, recognizing the importance of combining the mind, body, and spirit to achieve optimum health and well-being.

Reputed to be thousands of years old, and having been used in almost all civilizations of the world, aromatherapy is one form of holistic healing that can easily be practiced in our daily lives.

How does it work?

Aromatherapy is the art of using the fragrant essential oils of plants to treat ailments of the mind and body. The scent of the oils evoke a variety of different responses by stimulating the olfactory organs, which are linked to the areas of the brain which control emotions.

A series of chemical reactions, initiated by this stimulation then takes place, effecting a physical or emotional change in the body.
