What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is a specialized complimentary medicine system, which uses naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants, flowers, leafs, seeds, barks and fruits to balance and harmonize the body at all levels – physical, emotional and spiritual.

How does Aromatherapy work?The idea of Aromatherapy is based on the positive response of our bodies when exposed to some kinds of smells, or when treated with Aromatherapy Organic essential oils. When the body is massaged with specially prepared Aromatherapy Organic massage oils, our breath takes about 15% of the air to the roof of the nose, where olfactory receptors transport odors straight to the brain. This process stimulates the release of beneficial chemical within the body responsible for healing any bodily imbalance.

Additionally, when directly absorbed into the bloodstream, these essential oils also improve the overall health, beauty and hygiene. However, you should approach only an expert aromatherapist who has precise knowledge of the bioactivity and synergy of the essential oils used, and the dosage and duration of application as required.
