Welcome to our 'Aromatherapy Page'

 Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being, it can be the trigger for memories or emotions.

The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function.  Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.  A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum.  It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.  There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties. 

How Does it work? 

"An aromatherapy blend can be thought of as a "symphony in scent". Essential oils like Lemon, Tangerine and Bergamot supply ephemeral "top notes" similar to the top notes created by flutes, violin, or silver bells. Cedarwood and Sandalwood essential oils are deep and resonant.  They can supply the "base note" quality, similar to base notes supplied by the base, drum, tuba, or cello in an orchestra. Other essential oils, like Ginger and Rosemary, are considered to be "middle notes" and they help to form the body of the composition. 

Thoughtful and intuitive blending of essential oil fragrances, informed by aromatherapy science and tradition, can result in new, unique, and inspiring blends that soothe and satisfy mind and body on the deepest levels. 

Aromatherapy treatments have both physiological and psychological effects. The combination of massage and the medicinal and therapeutic qualities of the essential oils (molecules both inhaled [aroma] and absorbed through the skin) can soothe, re-vitalise, uplift the spirit, encourage positive thinking and boost the immune system enabling the body to heal itself.

 

Physiological Benefits – Aromatherapy massage can:

Enhance lymphatic drainage, this helps reduce fluid retention and prevent oedema, induce a feeling of deep relaxation in the body, stimulate the body's natural immune system, increase the oxygen and nutrient supply to the tissues by increasing the blood circulation to help increase energy levels as blockages and congestion in the nerves are eased.

 Psychological Benefits – Aromatherapy massage can:

promote a general state of well-being, calm and soothe the mind, help to reduce nervous tension

help to lift the mood and reduce feelings of depression. 

 

We offer Aromatherapy Workshops

 Would you like to share some time learning about the amazing properties of the essential oils we use?  Create your very own lotion, cream or room spray?

We are obliged by professional membership and "ethics" to conduct a Face to Face consultation in order to discuss contraindications and determine the best fragrance blend for your by process of oil selection.

 

We offer Aromatherapy blends of:-  Creams, Lotions, Massage Oils & Room Sprays. 

We still need to carry out a blending consultation in order to ensure the product is made to best suit you / your needs.

The oils are FAB in the bath to add some luxury to your bath, the creams for general hand / foot use.  We suggest they have around a 3 to 4 month life once blended into the carrier products.  We can create the same blends again within the 3 to 4 month period, however, we suggest a review after this as it will help us determine change, this too is an educational process.
