"Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived."

Helen Keller


THE POWER OF SCENT

Aromatherapy is the art of utilizing the life force of plants in the form of essential oils, also thought of as nature’s medicine, to enhance ones emotional, spiritual and physical well-being.

When you experience the smell of a rose or a field of lavender, that is the essence of the plants. Once these aromatic substances have been gently distracted, most commonly by steam distillation, they are referred to as essential oils. These oils are highly concentrated and precious. It takes a large amount of plant material to produce small amounts of distilled oil. For example, one drop of rose oil is made from fifty rose flowers.

Essential oils have been used for centuries for medicinal and therapeutic purposes dating back to early Egypt. Thought of as man’s first medicine, records show that at one time they were used to treat virtually every ailment known.
