Description

The word aromatherapy conjures up images of people magically alleviating their depression or insecurities with wonderful scents. But aromatherapy is much more than that. Incorporating aromatherapy into your life enhances your overall health, beauty and psychological well-being. Aromatherapy can reduce stress, improve sleep and give you more energy. It can improve your complexion, treat an annoying skin itch and eliminate a stomachache.

Perhaps the best thing about aromatherapy is that is so easy and pleasurable to engage in. few people will complain about receiving a prescription to bathe with scented oils or apply a fragrant body oil-two of the most popular aromatherapy techniques.

Essential oils give plants their characteristic odors, enabling us to take deep drafts of a fragrant rose bloom or drink in the perfume of lilacs and lavender. It is because essential oils are by their very nature aromatic that the therapy involving their use has been christened aromatherapy.

Everything you need to know to enhance your health, beauty, and emotional well-being through the practice of aromatherapy. Kathy Keville and Mindy Green, who are masters in the fields of herbalism and aromatherapy, offer a fresh perspective on the most fragrant of the healing arts.
