The most enduring of our senses is the scent. It has the power to heal our bodies and transform our emotions. It can also take us to another time and place.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the practice of using plant oils that evaporates easily at normal temperatures, including essential oils, for physical and psychological well-being.
It has been said that the Chinese may have been one of the first cultures to use aromatic plants for well-being. To help create harmony and balance, their practices involved burning incense to help create harmony and balance. So many products incorrectly use the term aromatherapy on their packaging. Some people and vendors refer to aromatherapy as a “new discovery” giving a false sense of hype to aromatherapy and promoting false information about aromatherapy.
We can benefit psychologically and physically when we use essential oils which are pure essence of plants when we use the oils correctly and safely. There are at least 90 essential oils. They are often used as a blanket term to also include absolutes and CO2s. When seeking a true aromatherapy product we should always check the ingredient label because many companies do not properly use the term
aromatherapy on products that contain unnatural and perfume oils.
About Aromatherapy Products
We should be aware that not all ready-made aromatherapy products labeled with the word “aromatherapy” are pure and natural. Some products that contain artificial ingredients do not provide true aromatherapy benefits. We do not benefit from them. They only provide a fraction of the benefit that natural products supply.
When we buy aromatherapy products, make sure to always check the product description to ensure that the product does not contain fragrance oils or any impure or unnecessary components. Some manufacturers do not list their ingredients and those that do not boast of having pure essential oils, we should be wary of that. We should look for products that contain pure essential oils on their ingredient list and should avoid those that have words like fragrance. Some stores that sell good-quality aromatherapy blends do not list their ingredients because they are worried that their creation will be copied. The only way you can do is as the seller more about the blend, by listening to how they respond, you will have a better idea about the quality of the blend they sold. Good suppliers should really be proud and happy to tell their customers their ingredients because some people
want to avoid particular oil that is not good for their health.
