Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses essential oils to achieve inner balance and harmony. It transcends the sole pleasure of olfactory memory and senses, and reveals the healing power of plants’ aromas. Indeed, its benefits are noticeable on all emotional, physical, psychic and energy levels.
Aromatherapy uses 100% natural essential oils, extracted from different parts of plants in laboratories, which contain active ingredients that stimulate the limbic system and the functioning of the hypothalamus, which commands the endocrine system. Certain oils can induce stimulation whilst others are sedative. They can be antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, fungicides, wound healers, lymphatic system stimulus, hypotensive, antihypertensive, antioxidant, depurative, circulatory tonic, astringent, amongst others.
