Aromatherapy

        Aromatherapy comprises highly concentrated aromatic oils which are distilled from different plants, fruits, wood and roots and then mixed with carrier oils which comprise pure vegetable oils such as almond or grapeseed oil. For centuries people have derived therapeutic benefits from aromatherapy to both their physical and psychological wellbeing. For maximum benefit, ensure that the essential oils you purchase contain no chemical or artificial ingredients.

      There are many ways to use essential oils for their fragrance and balancing properties.

Aroma

     The easiest and most effective method to use essential oils is to breathe the pure oil in deeply, straight from the bottle.

Diffuser

     An aroma diffuser is a small container that is filled with water and heated usually by a candle. By adding a few drops of essential oil to the water in the bowl of an aroma diffuser the aromatic vapors of the essential oils are diffused as the water is heated. It is a great way to freshen the air in a room and definitely sets the mood you are trying to create.

Bath

     Add several drops of essential oil to the bathtub water, stirring the water to mix the oils evenly. Baths are particularly good because it benefits the senses as the vapors are inhaled as well as the skin that absorbs the oils.

Massage

     Create your own massage oil by adding 20 drops of essential oil to the carrier oil.

Poultice

     Add a few drops of essential oil to a bowl of hot or cold water. Soak a cloth in the water, wring out and apply the cloth to the affected area. Use hot poultices for muscular or joint pain such as arthritis and cold poultices for inflammation or fever.

Make a spray for perfume or air freshener

     Add 20–30 drops of essential oil to 1 oz. (25 ml)water in a mist spray bottle and shake. Use as a perfume to freshen up or to freshen the air in a room.
