Aromatherapy – What Is It?

Merrim-Webster’s definition: massage of the body and especially of the face with a preparation of fragrant essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers, and fruits; broadly : the use of aroma to enhance a feeling of well-being.

Lavender plantsThe scientific concept of aromatherapy, the use of essential oils to treat or prevent disease, has been around since the early 1900s. However, the use of plant oils for therapeutic purposes goes back over 6,000 years. How aromatherapy may work is not entirely clear.

It is believe that inhaling the aroma of an essential oil stimulates brain functions, emotions and memories. By applying the diluted essential oil to the skin, it is absorbed into the blood stream to promote whole-body healing. For example, inhaling eucalyptus oils is believed to help ease congestion.

While health benefit claims made by aroma therapist have been unproven, clinical studies have shown that aromatherapy combined with other treatments has show positive effects. Aromatherapy helps the body cure itself through natural ways, but it does not cure conditions. Most of the benefits seem to be related to improving the mood, relaxation and pain relief when it is used correctly.

Lemongrass votive candleAromatherapy does not only benefit people. Many of us use citronella candles to keep mosquitoes away. Orange and lemon oils are an ingredient in many household products like Pledge, Pinesol, Murphy’s Oil Soap, etc.

Aromatherapy is delivered in a variety of ways. One way is through the use of candles. Seeds of Wellness carries a variety of aromatherapy candles made by Sacred Path Candles. These candles contain one or more essential oils and have a specific purpose. Each candle also contains channel healing energy by the spiritual healer, Susan Robinson, who hand pours each candle. Stop in or go to the candles page on our web site to learn more.

Note: The US does not regulate the use of the word aromatherapy on product packaging, labels, or advertising. Therefore, anyone can market a product as suitable for aromatherapy. If a product says it is “Made with Essential Oils” or “Made with Natural Ingredients”, it means the product contains a minute quantity of essential oils and the rest of the product may be synthetic
