What Aromatherapy is
Aromatherapy is the use of 100% pure and natural essential oils. Essential oils are pure concentrated extracts distilled from plants, which contain pheromones, antibiotics and cell regeneration agents that energise, protect and nourish. They are revered both for their aroma and their therapeutic value, hence the word Aromatherapy. The use of only 100% pure and natural essential oils allows the medicinal qualities of the oil to have a natural effect on emotions.
How Aromatherapy Works
Essential oils have a very powerful effect on the body and mind. It takes approximately four seconds for an essential oil to reach the brain through the sense of smell and four minutes to be absorbed into the blood stream through the skin.
The sense of smell is the most primitive of all our senses and it is linked to some of the oldest and deepest parts of the brain. As we breathe in the aromas of the essential oils, it can trigger emotional and physical responses.
When we breathe in aromatic molecules, they travel to the top of the nose where the molecules come in contact with specialized nerve cells called Olfactory cells. It is thought by scientists that the activity of the nerve signal passing through this region causes mood change by altering brain chemistry.
The molecules in the essential oils are small enough to allow them to penetrate through the skin. The molecules travel through the epidermis (the top layer of skin) reaching the dermis (a deeper layer of skin) and to the blood vessels allowing them to circulate through to all body areas.
The therapeutic qualities of essential oils are thought to ease stress, boost the immune system and encourage overall well-being.
