Aroma   -   therapy to Help Heal the Body

An essential oil is not as oily as you might think. It has a lot of essence extracted from plants by distillation and evaporates quickly.

Infused oil is a vegetable oil infused with fragrances of an aromatic plant mixed and heated together. The results are a nice fragrance but this could be very greasy.

Aroma-therapy is sometimes used during meditations for relaxation, massage therapy, psychotherapy, osteopathic treatment, herbal medicine, healing, chiropractic care, homeopathy, vitamin and or mineral therapy, acupuncture treatments, and hypnotherapy. There is no doubt that it could be used for many other things as well.

Holistic aroma-therapy is the principal method of application through the skin applied by massaging in a mixture of essential and vegetable oils. Other ways of applications might be used also. But used as the main supplementary method. Essential oils can also be used in baths, compresses, gargles and other various things. This depends on which part of the body needs the oils. Used in a bath could be very relaxing after a day of hard work.

Inhalation is the best method of contact. This is good for the lungs, sinuses and may also have effects on the nervous system through the sense of smell. Fragrances can and in most incidences, do influence mood and emotions, offsets stress and reduces high blood pressure. It can help people feel better inside, improve temperament and aids in relaxation which could increase self-confidence, energy levels and help cope with stress. Among others, it can help relieve sinus infections.

Smell is the only sense which the nerve endings that receive the odor are in direct contact to the outside world. You may have heard theses being called olfactory nerve cells. These are the only cells that can restore itself if damaged.

If the oils applied directly to the skin, they are capable of treating local infections. As a liquid form it could be given orally or through the skin. Orally it will go through the mouth, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and to the various muscles and tissues, joints, into the blood stream, to the heart, other body organs and tissues and then finally through the bladder. When used as a vapor, inhaled through the nose, to the lungs, bloodstream, brain, which gives a neurochemical release (affects the nervous system) which in turn has an emotional and or mental effect. It also flows through the bloodstream and other body organs and tissues finally getting to the bladder.

This is one of several ways of alternative healing that we benefit from.
