WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY?
Aromatherapy is an ancient technique of using naturally extracted plant essences to promote wellness of the body, mind and spirit. The emphasis of the technique is to focus on prevention rather than cure. It is your ideal partner if you wish to work on yourself to relieve fear or stress, to relax, to meditate, to find joy, to let go, to balancing your chakra and many more. The list is endless, and the path is beautiful!
Plants produce fragrant essences in secretory cells, using nutrients from the soil, water, light and warmth from the sun. These cells are near the surface, located in flowers and leaves. These essences are defined as the life force energy, soul or spirit of the plant. While these essences are distilled they undergo certain chemical changes and become essential oils.
HOW TO CHOOSE AN ESSENTIAL OIL?
Every Essential Oil has a number of properties and there is more and enough information available on the internet if you wish to find one to suit your needs completely. We suggest, do enough research, look around, and pick the one that calls out to you the most. If you seriously look around, your essential oil may pick you before you do so !
“ Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years that we have lived.“ - Helen Keller
These odor molecules travel through a variety of receptor sites one of which is the limbic system which is also referred to as the emotional brain. This system is directly connected to the parts of your brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress and hormonal balance. This explains how smell often triggers emotions. This clearly also justifies the number of reported psychological and mental effects of essential oils.
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything.” – Albert Einstein.
Aromatic herbs and oils, including essential oils, have been an integral part of the spiritual practices of many religions and cultures throughout history. Ever wondered why it is so? It is because of the unbelievable power of nature that we have chosen to look through in the last few decades. Why does it feel so good when you for a walk through the woods?
It is a scientifically accepted fact that Mother Earth and everything that exists on the planet shares the same pulse and vibration. Unfortunately, due to the artificial and dense mesh of vibrations and energy that we have created in the form of technology and even restricting our emotions we have lost touch with all of creation. Even holding a bottle of essential oil changes our vibration drastically as you are in contact with the field of the life force energy of the plant. These oils are said to be very beneficial to the glands and the organs that are associated with our chakras.
