Relax body and mind

The term AROMATHERAPY is used to describe a particular branch of herbal medicine. It is coined from two words, “aroma” meaning pleasant scent and “therapy” meaning a treatment that aims to cure a physical or mental condition. Literally it means treatment using scents. The scent involved not perfumes but the pure essential oils of plants valued for their therapeutic properties. Treatment involves applying these oils to the body to improve physical, mental, and emotional health. Essential oils are the basic tools of aromatherapy. The oils, which are extracted from plants, can be used to treat all systems of the body, disturbances of the mind, and imbalances of the emotions. There are many ways to use essential oils: massage, steam inhalations, vaporizers, baths, skincare, to name someone. Aromatherapy, or essential oils therapy, is using a plant's aroma-producing oils (essential oils) to treat disease. Essential oils are taken from a plant's flowers, leaves, stalks, bark, rind, or roots. The oils are mixed with another substance (such as oil, alcohol, or lotion) and then put on the skin, sprayed in the air, or inhaled. You can also massage the oils into the skin or pour them into bath water. Aromatherapy as used today originated in Europe and has been practiced there since the early 1900s. Practitioners of aromatherapy believe that fragrances in the oils stimulate nerves in the nose. Those nerves send impulses to the part of the brain that controls memory and emotion. Depending on the type of oil, the result on the body may be calming or stimulating.

What is aromatherapy used for?

Aromatherapy may promote relaxation and help relieve stress. It has also been used to help treat a wide range of physical and mental conditions, including burns, infections, depression, insomnia, and high blood pressure. But so far there is limited scientific evidence to support claims that aromatherapy effectively prevents or cures illness.
