Health Benefits of Aromatherapy

The properties of essential oils have been well documented, tried & tested over thousands of years. Many people are familiar with lavender & tea tree. However there is an abundance of other lesser-known oils which have been used to treat all manner of health complaints & beauty needs.

All of the oils are antiseptic, & tea tree is the strongest natural disinfectant known to man, which is why we use it to combat infection in many different ways. Many of the oils are also antibacterial & antifungal, but their properties do not stop there. Some can help with irregular blood pressure, stomach disorders, problem skin, anxiety, stress, G.U. problems, fungal & bacterial infections, coughs, colds, wheezles, sneezles, burns, bites, stings & many, many other things!

There are a number of ways the oils work. They can either be applied topically to the skin to deal with skin, joint or muscular problems, or they can be inhaled. When inhaled they can treat many breathing problems or infections, but they can also help maintain your mental health too. As the oils are inhaled, they trigger a chemical process in your brain, much like emotions or thoughts trigger chemical responses, which then send hormones/chemicals around your body. If a lot of negative emotions & thought processes occur, it can result in poor health. It is very well documented that anger compromises your immune system. Although very little is known about the biochemistry of this science, millions of people have benefited from balancing their emotions & enjoying a wonderful sense of well-being after inhaling them or by being massaged with essential oils.

The oils can be diluted so that it is safe to apply them to your body as a moisturiser, or put in a burner, diluted with water, to diffuse in a room (although I also use one outside in the summer to repel insects).

They can be used to add to water to create your own natural disinfectant & repel pests; added to humidifiers to combat infections, sneezles & wheezles; dripped onto your hoover bag to create a lovely smell in your house while you vacuum, popped on your pillow to encourage sweeter slumber. The list of uses are endless & there are lots of lovely books to give you inspiration. Here are a few of my personal favourites that I am always dipping into:
