What are Essential Oils?
An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils, contrary to the use of the word "oil" are not really oily-feeling at all. Most essential oils are clear, but some oils such as patchouli, orange and lemongrass are amber or yellow in color.
Essential oils contain the true essence of the plant it was derived from. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a long way.
Essential oils are not the same as perfume or fragrance oils. Where essential oils are derived from the true plants, perfume oils are artificially created fragrances or contain artificial substances and do not offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer. Fragrance oils are not used in aromatherapy.
The chemical composition and aroma of essential oils can provide valuable psychological and physical therapeutic benefits. These benefits are usually achieved through methods including inhalation and application of the diluted oil to the skin.
Aromatherapy massage is a beautiful way to express caring and help relieve the stress of a loved one. The benefits of aromatherapy massage can also be enjoyed through self massage.
On its own, the benefits of massage are many...
Massage helps improve circulation to the massaged area, and it helps to stimulate muscles.
In turn, this can help improve flexibility and mobility.
Massage can dramatically reduce stress and ease tension.
Massage can help reduce headaches/migraines, cramps and spasms.
Massage is also said to improve the immune system by stimulating the limbic system and the release of toxins.
But when combined with aromatherapy, massage takes on a remarkable synergy that dramatically enhances the massage session...
Bring your oils with you to your massage therapist and use them on your family and yourself at home!
