The scientific use of essential oils to treat or prevent disease has been around since the early 1900s. However, the use of plant oils for healing purposes goes back over 6,000 years
Aromatherapists believe inhaling a plant aroma improves the brain, emotions, and memories. By applying diluted essential oil to the skin, the oil absorbs into the bloodstream to promote whole-body healing. For example, inhaling or applying eucalyptus oil may help ease congestion. While health benefit have not been proven, clinical studies show aromatherapy combined with other treatments results in positive effects. Aromatherapy helps the body cure itself through natural ways, but it does not cure conditions. When used correctly, most benefits seem to be related to improving mood, relaxation, and pain relief.
Aromatherapy does not only benefit people. Many of us use citronella candles to keep mosquitoes away. Also, orange and lemon oils are ingredients in many household products like Pledge, Pinesol, Murphy’s Oil Soap, etc.
Receive the benefits of aromatherapy in a variety of ways. One way is through the use of candles. Seeds of Wellness carries a variety of hand-poured candles made by Sacred Path Candles. These candles contain one or more fragrance oils and have a specific purpose. Each candle also contains healing energy added by the spiritual healer and maker, Susan Robinson.
