Aromatherapy and How It Works
Aromatherapy, simply defined, is the use of essential oils for healing. Essential oils are substances from highly concentrated vegetal extracts that contain hormones, vitamins, antibiotics and antiseptics. Scientific studies prove that inhaling certain aromas can immediately affect the central nervous system. The brain registers aroma twice as fast as it does pain. This is why the inhalation of aromas can so powerfully transformed the emotions. Smell is the only sense that bypasses the blood-brain barrier to the central nervous system. Through the olfactory system, directly connected to the most primitive part of the brain - the limbic system, essential oil molecules have direct access to the brain's center of emotions and memory.

Aromatherapy and Spirituality
Aromatheraputic products can also benefit the person by creating positive feelings that influence physical changes in the body. Oils, especially from woods and gums, have a very centering and opening effect on the psyche. They help create a sense of connectedness, community and elevation, and they inspire the sacred in each of us. Major oils for ritualistic purposes are sandalwood, cistus, myrrh, frankincense, benzoin, vetiver, spikenard, and rose. The capacity to affect people on so many different levels - physical, medicinal, skin, energy, emotional, psychological is really what makes aromatherapy so special. No other healing art has such versatility and broadness of action.

Our Aromatherapy Bathing Products
Powerful and restorative, water is the element of humankind's origins. From the moment of conception, water sustains life, providing protection. For centuries, hydrotherapy has been considered an important treatment for a wide range of ailments. A warm bath is also the ideal environment to experience the healing benefits of aromatherapy because the inhalation process is aided by steam. A soothing bath helps to restore harmony in the body, ease the stress of the outside world and nourish the inner soul in quiet solitude.
