How to Use Aromatherapy to Heal the Mind and Body

WebMD defines Aromatherapy as the following:

Aromatherapy, or essential oils therapy, is using a plant’s aroma-producing oils (essential oils) to treat disease. Essential oils are taken from a plant’s flowers, leaves, stalks, bark, rind, or roots. The oils are mixed with another substance (such as oil, alcohol, or lotion) and then put on the skin, sprayed in the air, or inhaled. You can also massage the oils into the skin or pour them into bath water. Aromatherapy as used today originated in Europe and has been practiced there since the early 1900s.

Practitioners of aromatherapy believe that fragrances in the oils stimulate nerves in the nose. Those nerves send impulses to the part of the brain that controls memory and emotion. Depending on the type of oil, the result on the body may be calming or stimulating.

The oils are thought to interact with the body’s hormones and enzymes to cause changes in blood pressure, pulse, and other body functions. Another theory suggests that the fragrance of certain oils may stimulate the body to produce pain-fighting substances.

My favorite scent is lavender.  I find it to be very relaxing and love to take a bubble bath with lavender bubbles or oil.  After a bath I am ready for bed!  Lavender is also a perennial plant that you can plant outside and it will return year after year and you can even harvest it and use it inside. As you can see it is a very delicate looking plant, but is actually quite hardy!
