Aromatherapy

Aroma Therapy

Aromatherapy means "to scientifically treat with the help of fragrance". Potent yet subtle, reviving yet restoring, these health and beauty treatments are safe and work on both mind and body. Pure natural aromatic essential oils are used for aromatherapy. Tiny quantities, prepared by special methods, contain all the properties of a tree. A single drop of essential oil can store and release the energy of an entire plant particularly by using massage techniques.

Methods

To get the aroma, particular oils/essences can be used as follows:
    Massage (35 Drops of aroma oil in 50 ml. of carrier oil or gel)
    Bath
    Compress
    Inhalation
    Room diffusion
