What is Aromatherapy?

You might be wondering what exactly is Aromatherapy?

     Aromatherapy, as defined by the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy, is “the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit.  It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process.”

     Aromatherapy is a natural approach to supporting your health, body, mind and spirit.  It utilizes many different types of essential oils, which are aromatic compounds derived from plants, depending upon an individual’s specific needs. Essential oils are a wonderful addition to your daily life to help manage stress, help you sleep better, to boost your energy levels, for pain management or in a skincare routine. They can also be used for more acute situations like an injury, overworked muscles or common skin complaints.

Aromatherapy is a wonderful way to offer your body and mind the extra support it needs to to feel its best each day!
