Aromatherapy - What It Is and The Benefits
After a long stressful day I decided to treat myself to a night of Aromatherapy. Most people don’t know what aromatherapy is and their benefits.
Most popular are the essential oils, the pure essence of a plant, that have been found to provide both physical and psychological benefits when used correctly. Inhaling essential oils into the lungs stimulates the brain to trigger a reaction and can provide therapeutic benefits. For example, diffusing eucalyptus essential oil tends to aid in the reduction of congestion.
Essential oils can also be applied directly to the skin and absorbed into the bloodstream. Essential oils usually come in concentrated form and should first be diluted before applying.
Before purchasing aromatherapy products look at the label ingredients to ensure that is does not contain fragrance oils or impure chemical components. Look for products that contain pure essential oils on the ingredient list and stay away from those that have words like fragrance.
