People have used essential oils for thousands of years to aid with their physical and emotional health. Whether it is aroma or their natural healing properties, essential oils soothe your mind, heal your body and comfort your spirit naturally.
How does an aromatherapy blend work?
An aromatherapy blend is a combination of carrier oil and one or more essential oils. By slipping through the skin and by breathing in from the air, these oils penetrate the human body to heal our mind, body and spirit. Our skin absorbs essential oils to heal from inside while carrier oil softens and nourishes the skin from outside. Essential oil molecules continue to work long after our sense of smell stops detecting them even after our nose, tired of stimulation, stops registering them. Don’t be surprised if you find the aroma to not be as strong after a period of time.
To be truly effective, essential oils must be 100% pure. With organic oils you get a product that is free of pesticides, herbicides and their residues. There are no hidden synthetic ingredients or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). And, the manufacturing facilities have passed certification inspections. Non-organic, synthetic, adulterated or improperly distilled oils, although less expensive, will not provide the same desirable effects and may even have adverse effects such as skin irritation. Go on and indulge! But, remember to treat it with respect and use it safely.
