How does aromatherapy work?


If you wondering how can an aroma or a fragrance be used as a tool for healing, then think how the smell of earth after a fresh shower can instantly lighten your mood or the scent of a garden full of roses can lift up your spirits. Does it all make more sense now? A good smell can refresh our minds and it is this line of thought that aromatherapy follows.

Essential oils contain oxygen molecules that help in preventing diseases. During the extraction process of these oils, care is taken that their scent and healing properties are retained. Essential oils have bio-electrical frequencies which when applied to the human body have the ability to fight bacteria, fungus and viruses. These oils get their properties from the plants, which use their natural resources to survive and fight off bugs and insects. One of the advantages of these oils is that they are easily absorbed into the skin and are distributed throughout the body. These oils also do not leave any toxins in the body.

If you want to understand how aromatherapy works, try to pick the right essential oils for their right uses. For example chamomile and lavender oils have a soothing and relaxing effect and help in reliving stress while citrus scents are energizing and invigorating. Different aromatherapy oils can be mixed in varying proportions and used for improving your blood circulation or treating digestive and urinary problems.
