Healing Your Mind, Body & Soul
Aromatherapy is a treatment where Essential Oils are used during massage to help soothe, heal and settle the body both mentally and physically. A special recipe of oils (depending on the desired effect) are blended together to use in a massage treatment such as the Indian Head, Reflexology, Hand, Arms, Feet, Legs or Hot Stone. Essential Oils use natural extracts from either the leaves, fruit, wood, seeds, roots, petals of plants.
The different oils are said to have different healing qualities, such as Lavender which is used for its anti-inflammatory properties, it can promote hair growth, soothes headaches, be calming for people who suffer with anxiety, depression, insomnia, restlessness and more. Lavender is one of the most popular oils to use in Aromatherapy due to its huge amount of benefits but there are hundreds of different types such as Sage, Lemon, Tea Tree, Rosemary, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Chamomile.
Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years and has been used for medical, religious, cosmetic, physical and psychological benefits. They enter the body through our sense of smell, absorption through the skin, inhalation and ingestion. They can be used in the following ways
Essential Oil diffusers
Candle oil burners
Body creams, oils, lotions
Inhalation from a tissue or pillow
Internal and mouthwash.
Even though Essential Oils can be used internally, I am not trained in this area as it is a very complicated one, so I would never recommend or be able to give advice out regarding this method. As Aromatherapy Essential Oils are made from plant extracts, it means that we are being healed and soothed in the most beautiful way by our Mother Earth and some of the benefits are,
Reduces stress, depression and anxiety
Soothes sore joints and muscles
Fights bacteria, virus, fungus and infections
Treats headaches and migraines
Creates a calming ambience
Promotes hair growth
Relieves Menstruation or Menopausal symptoms
and so much more…
Like all Holistic Therapies the benefits are endless. Aromatherapy is a wonderful way to promote natural healing around the body and to relax the mind, body and soul together, which is just what Bliss Healing is about!
