I hope you have all enjoyed this Summer, have stayed safe in the sun and are now looking forward to some cooler temperatures.
This month, I am talking about the benefits of Aromatherapy Oils and some of my favourites that I use regularly!
Aromatherapy Oils are used a lot in massage, but the origin of Aromatherapy started over 3,000 years ago, mainly used for medicine to treat and heal people.
Aromatherapy is a branch of phytotherapy that uses the volatile active ingredient of aromatic plants. These plants have the ability to synthesise an essence thanks to sunlight and photosynthesis. This science focuses on the use of essential oils for therapeutic, curative and prevention purposes. The essential oils are extracted by steam distillation of part of the plant, such as leaves, flowers and barks.
The word Aromatherapy was coined in 1935 by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, a chemist from Lyon who conducted many personal and scientific experiments on essential oils.
Aromatherapy Oils are used widely now
for lots of healing purposes, particularly in
salons offering massages. .
Here are a few of my favourites and the benefits of each of them:-
