Essential Oils have been used for aromatherapy purposes dating back all the way to the Egyptians in 3,500 BC who were using aromatic plants as part of their medicine system and they continue to gain in popularity today. When used, essential oils promote wellness and tranquility.
Aromatherapy is the diffusion of pure, natural aromatic essences from plants and botanicals for the purpose of promoting harmony of the body, mind, and spirit. It's a natural technique that's non-invasive yet all-encompassing in its ability to affect the well-being of the whole person through the use of one of our most powerful senses -- the sense of smell.
Aromatherapy works through two different methods of action. The first is through the effect of aromas on the brain. The second is through the direct effects of the beneficial substances naturally inherent in the botanicals that essential oils are derived from. Aromatherapy is not intended as a cure for any ailment. Rather, it helps to promote homeostasis, possibly through indirect effects on the immune system and by improving the mental state of the user.
