What is Aromatherapy? What are some of its benefits?

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for therapeutic benefit to promote good health and improve a person’s well-being. It can strengthen both your physical and emotional wellness.

Not only does aromatherapy provide a pleasing fragrance throughout your home or office, but it also supplies a considerable amount of physical and mental health benefits. When essential oils are diffused, they evaporate into the air and those molecules are inhaled. Inhaling these essential oils arouses the olfactory system, the part of the brain connected to smell. As the molecules reach the brain, they affect the limbic system, which is linked to the emotions, the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory and stress.

Each essential oil has many purposes and uses and can be combined with other oils to achieve multiple results, depending on which of these areas you are trying to improve.

Essential oils are natural, easy to use, versatile and cost effective. You can get creative and mix different oils together to find a scent that both appeals to you and aids in whatever ails you. Essential oils can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve your sleep, relax your mind, soothe your soul and so much more!
