Use of aromatic plant oils, including essential oils, and other aromatic compounds to enhance psychological and physical well-being.

Essential oils – fragrant, potent, and volatile – extracted from a great range of (more than 150) plants, flowers, fruits, grasses, leaves, twigs, roots and bark, these form the basis of Aromatherapy. The knowledgeable use of these essential oils (often with massage) is reckoned to enhance body, mind and spirit; they are intended to complement and work alongside medical treatment.

Extracted from both common and more exotic plant varieties, pure essential oils have been found to be relaxing, anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, soothing and uplifting. Aromatherapy promotes bodily well-being, positively affect the emotions, and assists psychological balance.

Aroma oils can be inhaled, absorbed or consumed. A concentrate of the essential ‘oils’ is more like water, not greasy, and evaporates quickly. Aroma oils are carefully prepared by a complex process called maceration which extracts the essences from dried plant material. They are then purified using a process called defleurage and in some cases fat is used instead of oil. The final process of purification is called enfleurage.

It is well known how evocative the sense of smell is, reminding us of past experiences or emotions. The idea of Aromatherapy is based on the positive reaction to particular fragrances and to particular aromatic oils. When the body is massaged with specially-prepared aromatherapy organic massage oils, a specific smell is released. Our breath takes about 15% of the air to the roof of the nose, where olfactory receptors transport those smells straight to the brain. This process stimulates the release of beneficial chemicals within the body which in turn are responsible for healing bodily imbalance.

To get the most from aromatherapy, since it takes expertise and experience to correctly dilute and blend the essential oils, it is recommended to attend a qualified aromatherapist.
