"Scent is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived"...
Pleasant aromas are fun!...
What is aromatherapy? It is the practice of using volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical health and well-being..... Simply said, aromatherapy is "the study of scent" for personal health and well being.
So... what are essential oils?
...the pure "essences" of plants that have been produced by steam distillation. If you take a plant leaf and tear it apart, the juice you see is where essential oils come from. This amazing oil can come from the leaves, stems, bark, flowers and roots of plants. These plant oils have been found to be mentally and physically beneficial when inhaled, applied topically or even in some cases, ingested. There are many essential oils and blends of essential oils available. Most natural beauty and body care products have these oils in their ingredients, either to enhance the aroma or as a therapeutic benefit.
Most people who are allergic to fragrances can tolerate essential oils because they are natural and the body really likes them. So, if you want to go "natural", you will become very familiar with these plant essences since they are used quite often in natural health and beauty products.
You can learn more about essential oils and their benefits here. I personally use essential oils every day. They are a part of my life. They can be a part of yours, too.
They can be exhilarating or relaxing, energizing or calming, comforting or romantic. They can set a mood in a room like air fresheners, candles
or linen sprays or be a therapeutic medicine for body care when applied directly on the skin as in lotions,
, massage oils or bath oils . The most common use of aromas are the perfumes used by many women. No wonder aromatherapy is so popular!
Yes, natural scents, like essential oils affect the limbic part of our brain. This is where our memories and emotions are stored. You might have smelled a certain aroma that brought you back to a time in your childhood. Maybe it was your grandmother's linen closet or lilac bush in the back yard.
There are some wonderful aromatherapy products made by small businesses that care about their customers and care about the environment using natural and organic ingredients that bring you a healthy product, whether it be candles made from vegetable waxes or body care products made with pure essential oils. The companies that I am featuring are "the best" in my book!
