The true practice of aromatherapy is a wedding of both science and art. It is one of the most powerful forms of healing known for enhancing one’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. For centuries aromatic plants have been used to enhance the vital life force energies. Aromatic oils contain the 'life essence' of a plant. As such, they are highly concentrated, a single drop can produce significant results.
Aromatherapy is a perfect complement to a professional therapeutic practice. Essential oils can also be used in the work place or at home and very easy to integrate into your everyday life. In your professional practice, the myriad benefits of essential oils can greatly enhance a client’s overall experience and results of their care. Aromatic oils also add a memorable quality to your business identity and encourage customer/client loyalty.
