Aromatic essential oils are the highly concentrated essences derived from plants. These oils harness a plant’s therapeutic properties to restore balance to the mind, body, and spirit. They have a long history in natural healing.
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years as traditional remedies to enhance health and well-being. Our sense of smell is more sensitive and immediate than any of our other senses, which is why aromas can be so evocative.
These scents can trigger physiological responses and affect our mental state. A key element of aromatherapy is its ability to treat holistically, looking beyond isolated symptoms, and treating body, mind, and spirit.
