Aromatherapy: Essential Oils

| by , under Wellness

The word aromatherapy means treatment using scents. It refers to the use of essential oils in holistic healing to improve health and emotional well-being and in restoring balance to the body. Essential oils are aromatic essences extracted from plants, flowers, trees, fruit, bark, grasses and seeds. These oils have distinctive therapeutic, psychological and physiological properties that improve health and prevent illness. Some oils are antiviral, anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, antidepressant, stimulating, relaxing, expectorating, support digestion and have diuretic properties, too.

Essential oils get absorbed into our body and exert an influence on it. The residue gets dispersed from the body naturally. They enter the body in three ways: by inhalation, absorption and consumption. The appropriate oils can have powerful results, both on the body and the spirit.
