Aromatherapy is the controlled and informed use of essential oils to maintain and improve the health of the mind, body, soul and spirit. Before selecting essential oils for a treatment, your therapist will take into consideration your presenting symptoms, emotional state and your reasons for having an aromatherapy treatment. The essential oils used in aromatherapy can be antiseptic, anti-viral, sedative, uplifting and anti-fungal. These qualities make it a valuable preventative treatment that supports the body’s natural self-healing process.
