Aromatherapy contributes to whole-body healing by stimulating brain functioning, elevating positive mood, aiding in stress and pain reduction, and eliciting a calming or stimulating response. Additionally, oils interact with specific hormones and enzymes to cause changes in pulse, sleep regulation, blood pressure, and other bodily functioning.
Aromatherapy uses natural and organic essential oils that are extracted from flowers, stems, roots, and leaves and utilized for their therapeutic purposes.
Essential oils can be applied on the skin, sprayed in the air/diffused, or inhaled. They are often incorporated into massage, therapeutic yoga and meditation sessions.
