Did you know...?

The origins of Aromatherapy and the use of essential oils can be traced through the religious, medical and social practices of all the major civilisations. The Ancient Egyptians used candles and  incense for religious purposes, and oils and resins for embalming and preserving corpses.

The Greeks and Romans used aromatics widely in rituals and ceremonies and the oils played an important role in the rise in popularity of baths and massage. However with the fall of the Roman Empire the use of oils died out in Europe.

Today we are still using essential oils and Aromatherapy, in natural skin care massage,bathing,facials and home fragrance.

Essential oils work in two main ways, as an ‘aroma’ through the respiratory system and by absorption through the skin

As well as the fantastic natural aroma from essential oils it can help with

  • Relaxation and stress 
  • Lift your Mood 
  • Relief of minor discomforts
  • Boosting the immune, respiratory and circulatory systems

Aromatherapy is not a cure for illnesses but can be an effective alternative to alleviating many of the discomforts associated with them minor ailments and illness.

All essential oils contain natural therapeutic properties such as aphrodisiac, antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal such as Tea Tree and help to enhance the protective function of the skin. Certain oils can calm and soothe the skin and others such as Lavender essential oil  help the skin cells to regenerate.

When using an Aromatherapy product the  essential oils used absorb into the skin and blood stream.  The advantages to topical application of diluted essential oils is that they can go directly to the spot where you need them the most...you may want to use a blend suitable for period pains by massaging in the tummy area,or if you have aching muscles into the sight of discomfort.

Practitioners of modern complementary therapies like aromatherapy and reflexology use various massage techniques.

Gentle massage affects the nervous system through nerve endings in the skin, stimulating the release of endorphins, the body's natural 'feel good' chemicals, to help induce relaxation and a sense of well-being, to relieve pain and reduce levels of stress chemicals such as cortisol and noradrenaline.
It helps reverse the damaging effects of stress by slowing heart rate, respiration and metabolism and lowering raised blood pressure.

Stronger massage stimulates blood circulation to improve the supply of oxygen and nutrients to body tissues and helps the lymphatic system to flush away waste products. It eases tense and knotted muscles and stiff joints, improving mobility and flexibility and circualtion
The most common massage techniques include effleurage, a light, firm and gentle stroking; petrissage, firm kneading and rolling of the tissues; frottage, or friction, deep direct pressure to release muscle tension; tapotement, hacking, tapping and clapping over the muscles and fleshy parts of the body.

Presently, more people from Western nations will experience depression at some time in their life.
But there are definitely ways to alleviate this problem, and they all start with taking care of ourselves properly.
