Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils from plants for treatment. Although the word “aromaâ” sounds like an inhalation, the oils can also be massaged into the skin or rarely taken by mouth.

 

You do not need to visit a spa to take advantage of the beneficial effects of essential and natural oils. Though aromatherapy massage at the spa is one of the most pleasant options for ending a heavy and exhausting day, you may not have the opportunity or the time to visit a professional masseur. You can take advantage of the aromatherapy at home. You need a few candles, essential oils and especially oil for dilution. Aromatherapy massage at the spa is one of the most pleasant options for ending a heavy and exhausting day.

The secret of aromatherapy, of course, is in essential oils. They accelerate the release of waste and dead cells, as well as the regeneration of new healthy cells.

One reason why essential oils are so effective in treating skin problems is that they are easily absorbed and penetrate to the deepest levels of the dermis.

Natural warming in massage opens pores, thus helping to penetrate essences.

When you breathe a certain aroma, it sends messages to the brain that reacts, releasing chemicals.

They relax or stimulate the body. When used locally during a massage or in an aromatherapy bath, the molecules in the essential oils pass through the skin, move to the bloodstream and reach the places where they are needed to get started.
