Aromatherapy
 

Aromatherapy has been around for a very long time. It is one of the oldest forms of health and beauty care. Many ancient civilizations used essential oils and hearbs for medicinal perposes and spiritual rituals.Aromahterapy is the art and science of healing and therapy through the use of plant extracts, known as essantial oils - to promote balance in the mind and body.Your sense of smell is the mosy powerful sese you have. A single whiff of an aroma can evoke feelings and memories long forgotten.

When you inhale a fragrance, the smell itself bypasses your " thinking brain " and gose directly to the limbic system, the part if the brain that controls certain impulses, such as sex and hunger, as well as emotions. Because of this, these aromas, when used properly, are quite valuable for the purpose of mood alteration. Many hospitals and some hotels diffuse certain aromas into the lobby areas in order to produce a sense of calm and well-being in their clients.Aromatherapy had been around for 6000 years or more. The Greeks, Romans, and ancient Egyptians all used aromatherapy oils. The Egyptian physician Imhotep recommended fragrant oils for bathing, massage, and for embalming their dead nearly 6000 years ago. Imhotep is the Egyptian god of medicine and healing. Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, used aromatherapy baths and scented massage. He used aromatic fumigations to rid Athens of the plague.

The modern era of aromatherapy is dawned in 1930 when the French chemist Rene Maurice Gattefosse coined the term aromatherapy for the therapeutic use of essential oils. He was fascinated by the benefits of lavender oil in healing his burned hand without leaving any scars. He started investigating the effect of other essential oils for healing and for their psychotherapeutic benefits.

During world war II, the French army surgeon Dr. Jean Valnet used essential oils as antiseptics. Later, Madame Marguerite Maury elevated aromatherapy as a holistic therapy. She started prescribing essential oils as remedy for her patients. She is also credited with the modern use of essential oils in massage. Aromatherapy works the best when it works on the mind and body simultaneously.

 
What are Aromatherapy Essential Oils?

Essential oils are extracted from certain species of flowers, grasses, fruits, leaves, roots, and trees. Each individual oil has its own qualities and is used for many diverse purposes. It takes a great deal of work to produce a tiny amount of essential oil. Sixty thousand rose blossoms are required to produce one ounce of rose oil, whereas in the lavender plant the essential oil is more abundant and 220 pounds will provide 7 pounds of oil. In the case of jasmine, the flowers must be picked by hand before the sun becomes hot on the very first day they open, whereas the sandalwood tree must be at least 30 years old and thirty feet high before it can be cut down for distillation. Between these extremes, a whole range of growing and picking conditions apply to the plants that will ultimately provide the precious essential oils. The price of each oil reflects these conditions, and because it takes eight million hand picked jasmine blossoms to produce 2.2 pounds of oil, you can understand why it is one of the most expensive oils on the market.
 
How do Aromatherapy Essential Oils work?
 
Essential Oils penetrate the body in two ways, through the nose and through the skin. Our sense of smell is often underestimated, but it is approximately 10,000 times more sensitive than any other sensory organ we possess, and skin is the body’s largest organ. The effects of essential oils can be felt simply by breathing in the aromatic vapor. The aroma molecule that we breathe in is translated into a signal in our receptor cell in the nose. This signal is sent to the olfactory bulb and then on to the limbic and hypothalamus parts of the brain. These are the parts of the brain that regulate hormonal activity in our body. The second way for essential oils to penetrate the body is through the skin. Because essential oils are organic in nature, and have a very inherently low molecular weight they are absorbed through the pores and hair follicles of the skin. Some individuals will consume/digest Essential Oils, however, unless done under direct supervision of a certified Aromatherapist, we do not recommend doing so.
 
How long will Essential Oils last?
 
Unfortunately essential oils do not have date stamps when sold, so it is impossible to tell how old they are when you buy them. With careful attention through our inventory and sales management we can assure you that you will not receive any ‘old’ oils. The therapeutic life of essential oils is about two years, though some experts say it is much longer than this
 
Right Way of Aromatherapy Massage
Always dilutes oils before applying them to the skin. Use a carrier oil such as, Apricot Kernel Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil or any other pure, unblended vegetable oil. Donot use "baby oil", as this is a miniral oil, and unlike vegetable oils will not be absorbed by the skin. 1% dilution : 5-6 drops essential ols per ounce of carrier oil. 2% dilution : 10-12 drops essential oil per ounce of carrier oil. 3% dilution : 15-18 drops essential oil per ounce of carrier oil.

Right Way of Aromatherapy Bath

Long before the term alternative medicine was being used, aromatherapy was being practiced by the Egyptians for over 5,000 years. When being used by the Egyptians oil was being extracted from the many aromatic plants around them through infusion and then used for their not only cosmetic and medicinal purposes but also for embalming as well. They then passed the knowledge they had gained on to the Greeks and it served as the beginning of their research into how to use the oils and fragrance of some flowers for their relaxing and stimulating effects. In fact when looking back further in history we find that ancient man depended very much on his environment for their basic needs and to survive which led them to discover the more natural ways of preserving food and how certain conditions could be treated using herbs and aromatics.

Aromatherapy Bath

First of all we will look at Eastern Roots. The use of aromatics are shown in a Chinese Herbal Book by Shen Nung dated 2,700 BC and which provides specific details on over 300 plants and how they can be used. Also the ancient Chinese would burn incense and wood as part of their religious beliefs and practices and even in today’s modern society many Chinese still observe these practices today. You will also discover that the Chinese used aromatics in relation to the acupressure, massage and other therapies that they used.

Whilst now in modern society many people place a very high premium on their health and well being but due to the high cost of traditional and conventional medicines available (surgery and Medicare) more and more people are turning to aromatherapy and essential oil therapy as well as other forms of alternative medicine.

The basics of using essential oils in an aromatherapy bath are as follows:-

1. It facilitates equilibrium of both the physical, mental and spiritual health of a person through natural means.

2. In some cases it has been found that alternative treatments are considered as strong and effective as complementary treatments to regular medical practices.

3. The main component of aromatherapy is the essential oils and are highly concentrated essences which are known for their healing effects.

Add up to a maximum of 15 drops of pure Essential oil, to a bath full of warm (not hot) water. Float the oil on the surface and stir with your hand before relaxing in the bath for 10/15 minutes. For a hand or foot soak use 2 to 3 drops in a bowl of warm water.

 
General Safety Information
 
Do not take any oils internally without consultation from a certified aromatherapy practitioner. Most essential oils should be diluted before applying them to the skin. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a certified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses. It is safest to consult a certified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children. The best way to test an essential oil for allergy interactions with your body is with a skin patch spot test. If you have a known allergy to a plant or fruit, most likely you will be allergic to its essential oil. Essential oils are very concentrated oils and ‘more is not better’ in their application. In higher proportions they can have a counter-effect to the intended use. Read about an essential oil before applying it and take extra care to read about the safety precautions of each oil. Do not apply citrus essential oils, especially bergamot, before direct exposure to the sun. These essential oils increase photosensitivity to the sun and tend to be highly irritating to the skin. Essential oils are not soluble in water. Make sure you dilute or fully disperse them before getting into the bath. If you should ever experience an irritation to the skin from an essential oil, do not rub the area with water. Doing so will cause the irritation to spread. Apply any vegetable/carrier oil to the area; this will cause the essential oil to be absorbed and should ease the irritation within minutes. Always avoid contact with the eyes. Keep essential oils out of the reach of children and animals.

 

Below is a list of general safety guidelines that should be observed when using any of our products and especially our essential oils range. Always see the Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS) for specific detailed information

1). Keep out of reach of unattended children, pets and anyone with special needs. Always ensure the integral
dropper is in place as this acts as a guard against over consumption should the product fall into the wrong
hands.
2). Keep products away from delicate eye areas. If an accident occurs with neat essential oil flush the eyes
with cold full fat milk or vegetable oil to dilute.
If an accident occurs with diluted oil flush with clean warm water. If stinging is still present seek immediate
medical advice.
3). Keep products away from plastics, polished surfaces and all naked flames or sources of ignition.
4). Do not take essential oils internally unless under strict medical supervision or if in consultation with an
aromatherapist qualified to this level.
5). Never use an undiluted essential oil directly on the skin. Always dilute in a suitable base product. Lavender
& Tea Tree can be used neat in very small amounts 1-2 drops but not on a regular basis.
6). If you are pregnant, suffer from epilepsy, high/low blood pressure or any other specific condition please
seek medical advise before using any of our products.
Care must also be taken with certain oils (especially citrus oils) before exposure to direct sunlight.
Remember if you are unsure don’t use it.
7). When adding essential oils to bath water dilute the oil first in a small amount of full fat milk or dispersing
bath oil base. If neither is available be sure to agitate the water after adding the oil so it does not settle on the
top of the water and cause irritation.
8). Try to regulate the use of any essential oil as constant use over time may in isolated cases cause
sensitisation, nausea or headaches.
9). Certain oils may cause skin sensitivity or adverse reaction in some individuals. Discontinue use
immediately if this occurs. If susceptible to this kind of reaction it is always best to do a patch test before use
on a larger area.
10). Do not use machinery or drive a motor vehicle immediately following a relaxation treatment especially
after using soporific oils e.g. Clary sage.
