Aromatherapy Essential Oils
Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural oils to enhance psychological and physical well-being. It is a form of alternative medicine that uses volatile plant materials, known as essential oils, and other aromatic compounds.
Essential oils are the pure essence of plant oils, used for improved physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
Fragrance oils and perfume oils contain synthetic chemicals and do not provide the therapeutic benefits of essential oils.
Aromatherapy encourages the use of essential oils and other complementary natural ingredients including cold pressed vegetable oils (also known as a carrier oil), jojoba (a liquid wax), hydrosols, herbs, milk powders, sea salts, sugars (an exfoliant), clays and muds.
The first thing that greets your guests when they enter your home is the aroma. Essential oils are often used to create a homely atmosphere within the home.
Sweet orange, lemon and your favourite spice oil are especially good when diffused during the winter months for a refreshing - warming aroma and atmosphere.
Candles fragranced with essential oil can also be used to give the home a pleasant ambience and aroma.
Add 6-8 drops of your favourite scent to water in a diffuser or place the drops directly into a bowl of boiling water.
