What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants which contain therapeutic properties. They can be distilled in water and diffused for aromatic inhalation. When used this way, essential oils have a positive effect on your limbic system which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behavior, and long term memory. Essential oils can also be applied topically. When applied on the skin their healing components are absorbed into the bloodstream through the pores and hair follicles. Each plant has their own unique properties which will produce different reactions within the body.
Why Should I Use Them During Therapy?
They can be used during treatment to enhance the healing effects of therapeutic techniques. When therapy is combined with essential oils the natural healing properties and aromas help to stimulate positive emotions, peaceful thoughts and overall tranquility while decreasing pain and inflammation.
