Aromatherapy is not only a form of alternative medicine that uses volatile and potent plant materials (known as essential oils), but, is also an art/science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body/mind. This art/science effects the physiological and psychological realm of an individual by being both beautifully and powerfully fragrant; eliciting profound mental, emotional and physical responses. As a holistic practice, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness or disease by enhancing the individual's innate healing process.
Aromatherapy is a natural, non-invasive manner of treatment designed to affect the whole person not just the symptom or disease and to assist the body's natural ability to balance, regulate, heal and maintain itself by the correct use of essential oils.
