WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY?

Aromatherapy could, very broadly, be described as the therapeutic use of essential oils that are extracted from aromatic plants. Aromatic plant species have had an enormous impact on the life of the planet – from their ecological roles to their cultural uses, for healing and as medicines.These plants contain significant amounts of ‘volatile oil’ – which gives each of them their distinctive fragrances and tastes. Aromatic plants are found all over the temperate, subtropical and tropical regions of the Earth. That said, only around 1% of plant species on the planet are aromatic. The essences or ‘essential oils’ as many will know them are extracted from a wide variety of plants. Each oil will have its own distinct fragrance and healing properties. One essential oil may contain over one hundred different chemical components. These oils in their natural state have been found to possess a powerful synergy. We will discuss quality of oils later however, the quality of an essential oil is found to be more effective than a synthetic, partially reconstituted equivalent. Essential oils are volatile; therefore, it is essential that safe and correct storage is maintained. They will evaporate without trace if left open to the air and will not dissolve in water.

COST: 1:1 sessions are £125 and group sessions are £75pp.
