Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of essential oils, (concentrated plant essences), to relieve stress, enhance health & wellbeing and support healing of the body, mind, spirit & emotions.

Just as we as people are all unique with our own special genetic make up, so to are the essential oils. Each oil has distinct therapeutic properties that bring a homeostasis or balance to support the bodies natural functioning. Through research they have been proven to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-infectious, stimulant, relaxant and anti-depressant properties, amongst others.

The aromas of the essential oils have the ability to calm, relax, uplift or concentrate the mind due to the close relationship between our olfaction (smelling) system and our brain. Psychologically they can balance our emotions and have the ability to trigger our memories.

Combining essential oils with massage the aroma of the oil will calm the mind and relax the nervous system. Massage is a very effective way of getting the essential oils into the body. The small molecules are able to travel through the skin, unlike the larger molecules of base oils which sit on the skins surface and moisturize .Due to their various properties the oils will also affect - the skin, helping to clear ailments such as acne and dermatitis, the muscles and joints, relaxing, relieving pain, spasms and reducing inflammation, and the lungs, deepening and slowing the breathing leading to a greater level of relaxation. All systems of the body can be treated naturally and safely by a trained aromatherapist, leading to a renewed sense of balance, confidence and self-esteem.
