The art of aromatherapy has been practiced for thousands of years. Strong evidence has been found to link aromatherapy to many ancient traditions. Though aromatic oils have been used to treat and cure various ailments and conditions for centuries, the formal study on their properties only started in 1928. In its simplest form, aromatherapy is the use of essential plant oils for therapeutic purposes. They are normally employed to relieve a person from stress and a variety of stress-related conditions. Essential oils are also used for promoting an individual’s general well-being and in awakening and invigorating the body, mind, and soul.
Aromatherapy works by inducing the olfactory nerve cells with aromatic oils, which then carries out the message to the limbic system in the brain. The limbic system is the part of the brain that is responsible for controlling memory and emotions. Aromatherapy is concerned in the workings of both the physical and emotional aspects of the person under treatment. Physically, aromatherapy helps in relieving specific conditions through the stimulation of the nervous, immune, and circulatory systems. In emotions however, they may evoke pleasant memories and uplifted moods.
Although the medical community is not in agreement over whether aromatherapy in itself is instrumental to healing various medical conditions, the idea of recovery through aromatherapy is widely accepted.
Essential oils are derived from the distillation of the elements of a plant like the leaves, roots, flowers, stems, and bark. They hold the true essence of the plants from which they originally came in high concentration. Though termed as oil, essential oils normally do not have the real properties of oil. Some essential oils are yellow like that of lemongrass and orange, but many are appear clear in color.
These oils are used in a variety of methods: through inhalation, by adding them in bathwater, and by the application of the diluted oil on the body. However, not all oils are created the same. Since the production of essential oils is not regulated, some oils on the market may be diluted with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil. The more diluted an oil, the less effective the therapeutic benefits will be. The purest of the essential oils have the most therapeutic properties. When purchasing your own oils, it's recommended to research the manufacturer, along with their extraction and production processes.
Aromatherapists put into practice the workings of aromatherapy in a wide spectrum of work environments including:
mobile visiting practice
natural health clinics
beauty therapy clinics
In spite of the lack of formal research on aromatherapy, therapists and some physicians are often prescribing certain aromatic oils for a range of complaints including colds and flu, insomnia, sinusitis, migraines, digestive problems, and muscle pains. It must be understood though that aromatic oils must never be taken orally and should be first tested to determine the degree of skin’s sensitivity to some oils.
