“Aroma means scent, and therapy means treatment. Aromatherapy, then, is the use of the fragrant parts of aromatic plants to improve your health and general well being. First, of course, aromatherapy offers pure enjoyment. Taking a whiff of a spice in your kitchen or a bouquet of flowers is fundamental aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy has many other benefits, too. Inhaling the appropriate fragrance can reduce stress, lift a depression, hasten a good night’s sleep, soothe your soul, or give you more energy. Aromatherapy is already helping office workers stay alert while doing repetitive mental tasks. And hospitals are experimenting with using aromatherapy to help patients relax so that other healing modalities can do their job.Massaging aromatic oils into your skin is another way to benefit from aromatherapy. That’s because essential oils, the compounds responsible for a plant’s fragrance, offer a multitude of healing benefits in addition to their individual scents. A pungent liniment such as Chinese Tiger Balm, for instance, eases aches and pains. And the latest fragrant shampoos and body oils will improve the health of your complexion and hair while at the same time inducing a particular mood. Aromatherapy, then, is very versatile and can be used in many different ways to treat a wide range of physical and emotional problems.  Aromatherapy is so easy to use! ”

Claudia who will be leading the workshop is now cancer free and she credits this to the use of the essential oils.  She is a phenomenal person and has experienced first hand the benefits of the essential oils.  Watch the below video on how these same oils were used in hospitals and how the doubtful were convinced!!
