What is aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the ancient art of healing through the use of aromatic essential oils. The essential oils are carefully extracted from various parts of plants. ‘Aroma’ refers to the unique fragrance of each essential oil and ‘therapy’ refers to the healing qualities attributed to the oils.

Essential oils can assist in improving your emotional and physical well-being. Some of the therapeutic benefits include enhanced relaxation, increased energy & vitality, stress reduction & pain relief. The essential oils are selected for you according to the current needs of your body, mind and soul!

Essential oils can be used in your daily life right now! Here are some ways you can use them:

  • Inhalation – inhale directly from the bottle; place a few drops on a tissue; add 10 – 15 drops to your oil burner; place a drop on your pillow.
  • Body – add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to a base oil such as jojoba. Make a 2.5% dilution (approx 5 drops per 10mls). Use in the bath, on your body to hydrate your skin or as a massage oil.
  • Baths – add a few drops to a warm bath, making sure you thoroughly disperse them in the water.
