This coming week is Aromatherapy Awareness Week, run by @IFAaromatherapy and @AromatherapyCouncilUK, so what actually is aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is usually applied through the form of massage, but can also be administered in a number of other ways (such as inhalation, compress, home remedies like creams and lotions) depending on your individual case and needs.
An aromatherapy massage has the advantage of being tailored to suit the individual’s needs as everyone is different. Therefore, your therapist will recommend a custom blend just for you.
Your therapist may recommend some home care such as specially blended essential oils to use in a bath or as an inhalation, or a handmade aromatherapy cream. These are tailored to the client’s individual needs and therefore part of the treatment.
The benefits of using essential oils are as varied as the oils themselves. Also, one of the advantages of aromatherapy is that it can be tailored to address your specific needs.
Essential oils can be useful for people of all ages to optimise well-being. The oils can have a relaxing, soothing, comforting or even uplifting nature when blended correctly by a registered aromatherapist. Some essential oils are warming, stimulating and reviving and paired with massage, they can therefore support a healthy body.
People nowadays are becoming more health conscious and therefore choose more natural alternatives when it comes to treating ailments.
With exam season upon us – how about a relaxing session to reset the mind, and de-stress the shoulders?
