Aromatherapy is the use of plant essence in the form of essential oils, extracted from plants, fruits, flowers, bark, roots or resin. These aromatic substances have a number of physiological and psychological properties.
In Holistic Aromatherapy the main method of application is through the skin, by massaging in a blend of essential oils and a carrier/massage oil.
Each treatment and massage blend is unique, tailored to the specific needs of the person at that time. The combination of massage and the therapeutical qualities of the essential oils (inhaled through the nose and absorbed through the skin), can relieve stress and revitalise, uplift the spirit, boost the immune system and encourage the body's own healing process.
