What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is derived from two words: "Aroma", meaning scent or fragrance, and "Therapy", meaning treatment. With origins dating back 5,000 years, ancient civilizations in China, Egypt and India have been using flowers, plants and their essences for healing benefits.

Aromatherapy is an art of healing based on nature. A basic principle of aromatherapy is to strengthen the self-healing process by indirect stimulation of the immunity system. The usage intensity of essential oils is extensive, ranging from deep and penetrating therapeutic treatment to the subtlety of a unique and pleasing fragrance.
The Practice of Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is a way to improve the quality of life on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.

Essential oils are aromatic, highly concentrated, non-oily essences that are extracted from herbs and plants. Their purposes encompass both the physical aspects such as relaxation of muscles through massage to the emotional aspects of uplifting moods. On a spiritual level, essential oils are beneficial for meditation and general feeling of well-being.

The idea behind aromatherapy is, first, to find scents which are unique for each individual, that evoke positive sensory feelings and emotions, and then introduce these scents into our everyday life to enhance holistic well-being.

Natural scents keep us connected to the earth, sparking pleasant memories and emotions.
Why Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy uses pure essential oils, extracted from many parts of the plant (flower, leaf, resin, bark, twig, seed, berry, ring and rhizome). They are generally classified as citrus, floral, earthy, spicy, resinous or woody.

Aromatherapy is both an art and a science. It is an art because of the intuitive and creative aspects of preparing various blends of essential oils, and a science because it relies on scientific knowledge during extraction processes. Indeed, each method of extraction gives a different product, as each process extracts different constituents from the plant.

Thus, aromatherapy is not about "nice fragrances" but rather it is a complete system of healing which, when properly used, helps to relax, re-establish "homeostasis", or harmony, in the body and to achieve a state of equilibrium whilst promoting and maintaining good health and vitality.
