aromatherapy

Essential oils are considered mankind’s first medicine and have been used around the world for centuries. Known as nature’s living energy, essential oils are the natural, aromatic, volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. When practicing aromatherapy it is vital that only pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils are used.

The three methods to use essential oils and experience their health-enhancing benefits are via inhalation, topical application, and internal consumption. Inhalation of aromatic molecules affects us on a variety of levels - physical, emotional, and spiritual. Topical application of many essential oils is safe and can offer an enjoyable, relaxing experience. In fact, essential oils can bring an increase of 21% oxygen to the cells within merely 20 minutes of application.

Many essential oils also make excellent food flavorings or dietary supplements. Lavender, for example, is relaxing and helpful for insomnia, Lemon is antiseptic, Frankincense in an anti-depressant and stimulates the immune system, Rosemary enhances mental clarity and is useful for “chemo brain,” and Peppermint alleviates fatigue and nausea.

Essential oils can help you feel better in the following ways: Alleviate stress and anxiety related to treatment, shield your body from infection, experience natural pain relief, potent against inflammation, support your body’s immune system naturally, rejuvenate your skin, ward off insomnia, soothe digestive disorders, support your bones and muscles, increase your mental clarity, and provide superior dental and oral care. Aromatic medicine can help us live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

In addition to surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy, essential oils are very effective in reducing chemotherapy-related side effects and in helping oncology patients heal on a mind, body, and soul level. Essential oils may be the most profound health support that we may see in our lifetime, capable of changing medicine as we know it.
