Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to enhance physical and emotional well being. It is the fastest growing natural therapy at this time, attracting media attention and becoming highly popular with many people. A multifaceted healing modality Aromatherapy use includes:

  • Inhalation & vaporisation
  • Compresses
  • Bath or shower
  • Massage
  • Spritzer sprays
  • Skin care
  • Household cleaners
  • Deodorisers
  • Insect repellent
  • Mood enhancer
Aromatherapy can be fast acting but it is not a 'magic potion.' Your individual blend or 'mixture' of essential oils will not only provide immediate benefits the lasting effects will continue to be felt for sometime after the treatment.

A registered Aromatherapist will compile a case history and at each consultation will review your current symptoms and formulate a blend that is appropriate for you at that time. You may be given a cream or blend to use between visits to enhance the healing process.

Essential Oils
Essential oils are the 'life force' of the plant from which they are extracted, usually by distillation. They have individual chemical constituents which give them unique therapeutic properties. Essential oils have many healing properties to assist with promoting total holistic wellbeing. An imbalanced state is the surest way of developing dis-ease.
