What is Aromatherapy?
The sense of smell is one of our survival sensors, which helps us navigate through life. Wherever we go, whatever we touch, we are like babies, still have to smell everything! Some smells excite us, some smells relax us, and some smells warn us. Ancient healers studied people’s reactions to aromas of essential oils from flowers, trunks of trees, seeds, plants and found they have beneficial therapeutic properties towards our well being. That knowledge from thousands of years ago became known as Aromatherapy. Now we have the luxury of the natural healing art right in our hands.
Is it safe for everyone?
Aromatherapy is considered safe. Some people may have allergies or other sensitivities which may make aromatherapy not the ideal soothing or symptom managing tool it is intended. If you feel discomfort, you should limit usage or stop altogether. We can discuss alternative option if aromatherapy is not comfortable for you.
Notice: Aromatherapy has varying results based on an individual, but is not intended as a cure or treatment for any diseases. Products do not need approval by the Food and Drug Administration, so products should be purchased through quality researched sources. Aromatherapy is not regulated by state law or licensing, though professionals often combine aromatherapy training with another field in which they are licensed, for example, massage therapy, registered nursing, acupuncture, or naturopathy; be sure to inquire into the experience and standards of your aromatherapist.
