Essential Oils & Aromatherapy 

 So much more than just beautiful smelling oils.....

 

How do they Work?

Essential oils work similarly to conventional drugs in that their plant chemicals enter the bloodstream and work on the different systems of the body & mind. They are effective for physical issues but also work on emotional & spiritually needs as well....truly holistic

 

Each essential oil has various active plant chemicals which have different healing properties ~ Oils are chosen selectively for which healing properties are required & then prepared in a way to best suit your needs

A Blend or 'synergy' of Essential Oils are often created so that you are treated as a whole 'holistically', not just on isolated symptoms, but addressing the cause of dis-ease as well

....something pharmaceutical treatments just don't do

the science bit........

Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential oils used in our treatments contain numerous naturally occurring  chemical constituents which can have a direct physiological / & or psychological effect on our bodies on a cellular level (just as drugs do). Each  individual  oil has it's own unique profile which can affect different systems / emotions in the body. In fact the molecules of many essential oils are so small that they can reach many places that conventional drug can not, including passing through the blood / brain barrier.

 

Upon inhalation (smelling), & via every method of treatment (see below for examples), Essential Oil molecules bind to receptors in the nose (olfactory cells) & travel directly to the brain (limbic system - thought to be the seat of emotions & memory) & then onto the lungs. Subsequently, the Essential Oil Molecules are then distributed via the blood stream into the general circulation, and to all parts of the body.
