Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. It involves the use of essential oils - aromatic compounds that are derived from plants. Used for centuries, these oils are usually inhaled, added to massage oils or used in other applications to soothe, heal and balance the body and mind. Aromatherapy is believed to have many benefits, including reducing stress and anxiety, improving sleep, relieving pain, improving digestion, boosting immunity, and reducing headaches, nausea or inflammation.
When it comes to skin health, essential oils can help in various ways. Many have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that can help to manage skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Others have antioxidant properties that can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors such as pollution and UV radiation. Some essential oils can help to hydrate and moisturise the skin, leaving it looking glowing and healthy.
Mind and Spirit
In terms of mind wellbeing, essential oils are known to have a significant impact on the limbic system, the part of the brain responsible for mood and emotion regulation. When inhaled or applied to the skin, essential oils can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and promote relaxation. Some essential oils have energising properties that can also help to boost mood and increase mental clarity.

Essential oils are a valuable tool for promoting skin health and mind wellbeing. It is important to use them with caution - when applying to the skin they must always be diluted with a carrier oil, such as the Sunflower in our Pulse Point Rollers. It is also crucial to remember that some essential oils may not be suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women, children, people with certain medical conditions or pets. It's always a good idea to do some research.
We have created seven powerful synergies that work in harmony with the Chakras. Synergetic blending is a process whereby the chemical properties, healing benefits, and complementary scents create an effect more powerful than that of specific essential oils on their own.
