April 25, 2019 1 min read

Aromatherapy is an all-natural way to enhance physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Aromatherapy uses natural oils extracted from flowers, leaves, roots, stems and other parts of various plants.

When the aroma of these are inhaled they are believed to stimulate brain function.

These essential oils, when inhaled or absorbed through the skin through lotions or carrier oils travel through the bloodstream to facilitate whole-body well-being and healing.

Aromatherapy can have a profound effect on mood and can alter or enhance how one feels.

Aromatherapy is the method of choice for many to heal, relieve stress and pain, stimulate mood and improve brain power.
