Essence Aromatherapy   Essential Oils Herbs and Recipes

Aromatherapy is used for many reasons and many ways.  Let me introduce you to my businesses   so you can  enjoy life more fully.

 

 What is Aromatherapy

An   alternative therapy using plant extracts for their therapeutic value. You can find references to many uses of aromatherapy that  date  as far back as 2000BC when ancient Egyptians were using oils such as frankincense, sandalwood and cedarwood for their preserving properties for embalming the dead   known as mummifaction.  . Frankincense exellent for preserving skin, mind chatter, calming so if you want to deal with the signs of aging such as crows feet or signs of lack of sleep then get some sleep frankincense is a good oil combined with lavender makes a lovely aroma.

 

Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses volatile plant materials, known as essential oils, and other aromatic compounds for the purpose of altering a person’s mind, mood, cognitive function or health according to many resources

Care for Quality Assurance

.  Store oils in dark  glass bottles in a cool place  and your oils will retain their therapeutic value for approximately 18 months according to many sources.  It is said the  citrus family often start to lose their therapeutic value after 1 year but some others such as sandalwood and patchouli get better with age.

 

Aromatherapy is generally applied in one of three ways:

  • Diffusion– the oils evaporate into the air. The aim is to give the air a specific fragrance or to disinfect it.
  • Direct inhalation – the person breaths the evaporating oils straight in. This is commonly used for respiratory disinfection, decongestion, as well as for psychological benefits.
  • Topical applications – applied onto the skin. Commonly used for massage, baths, and therapeutic skin care.
