Aromatherapy - Health Advantages And Benefits

Aug 17, 2007
Aromatherapy has become a very popular means of healing and relaxation, and is practiced all over the world today. Dating back to ancient civilizations, its use of a variety of natural oils from herbs and plants has been known to aid in the healing of many conditions and provide both physical and mental relief to many people. As shown in more recent times, there are many health benefits to using Aromatherapy, a fact that wasn't lost on those in ancient times.

For centuries, essential oils have been used for massage purpose to relax the body and promote both physical and spiritual healing. It has been proven to work because it is thought that the aroma of the essential oils activate nerve endings in the nose, which then send impulses to the part of the brain that deals with emotions and memory. Because of this, it can have a very calming and soothing effect, which in turn, promotes relaxation.

Aromatherapy has also been shown to help relieve stress. This is done both by the massage itself, and through the aromatic part described above. This is useful even for those who don't necessarily need physical healing, but would just like to relax.

Aromatherapy can also be used to help heal a variety of physical health conditions by stimulating the immune system, thereby, healing to further build it and make it stronger. It can also stimulate the circulatory system, which will help blood flow more easily to all parts of the body.

Depending on the condition or specific reason for using Aromatherapy, a custom blend of essential oils can be mixed to help promote different things. An Aromatherapist can provide information on this process, and also help find the particular blend that will work for a specific condition or a variety of uses.

Before making any decisions, it is advisable to consult with an Aromatherapist, as it is also possible to continue this treatment at home. This, however, may not be a good idea unless you completely understand what it is you are trying to treat and how to best treat it.

Aromatherapy can also be used for pure enjoyment. Here it is very important to keep in mind that a healthy mind can often translate into a healthy body. The two can go hand in hand and one can definitely help promote the other. Though it is an old tradition, it is still widely used today and isn't expected to go away any time soon.
