Aromatherapy is the use of pure essential oils to promote well being on all levels; physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Aromatic plants have been in use since ancient times...in ritual, cosmetic and medicinal circumstances. Aromatic essential oils are distilled from plants, are highly volatile (evaporate easily) and are considered to contain the Spirit of the plant. They have been greatly researched by chemists for their antiseptic and antibiotic abilities, their active components and properties. Whilst many have attempted to synthesise essential oils' aromas, they are so complex that nothing can replace the pure natural product directly distilled from the plant.
The therapeutic element of an essential oil begins upon inhalation. When we inhale a pure essential oil it works on a subconscious level and it stimulates a part of our brain known as the limbic system. The limbic system is responsible for behavioural and emotional responses to our environment and influences our visceral (bodily) responses as a result. For example, if you had a good relationship with a grandmother who always wore a lavender type perfume then whenever you smell lavender it would probably take you back to the times when you were in her company and how you responded to her..did you feel safe, relax and smile?
Pure essential oils can have hundreds of chemical components, some of them in varying or small amounts. When used in massage blends, these components have medicinal properties which can influence different systems in the body, e.g. many of us know that eucalyptus may not only stimulate our immune system, it can also help our lungs to expel mucus if we happen to be suffering with a cold.
When you have an aromatherapy massage with a qualified aromatherapist they will consult with you beforehand as to which oils are best suited for you at this time taking into account your medical history and also which aromas are agreeable with you. The oils are chosen not only for their physical properties but also for their emotional, psychological and spiritual attributes so the effect is an holistic one.
Whilst Aromatherapy can be used as a preventative or supportive measure, it is not a replacement for appropriate medical care and if there are any medical concerns it is best to consult your medical practitioner.
