Aromatherapy, More that just great scents!
Aromatherapy is a Complimentary Medicine that uses the essential oils of plants to create body, mind and spiritual health and well-being. Scent is only one aspect of aromatherapy. Studies have shown that these therapies have a positive affect on the physical systems of the body. The effects on the emotions and mind are incredibly beneficial. They are known to help with anxiety, depression and mental traumas.
Aromatherapy has been used for over 10,000 in India and is still used today in ayurvedic medicine. China has used aromatics for therapeutic purposes since around 2650 BC and still uses those therapies today. The "Father of Medicine" Hippocrates, combated plagues with fumigations and helped with women's complaints with aromatic baths. Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh were given to the baby Jesus to ward off viruses, infections and provide good health.
"I have nothing against allopathic medicine, but I think that we should be empowered with the gifts that we get from the plant world." Plants have incredible healing powers and each contains their own unique blend of chemical constituents that give them their own unique abilities; these include analgesics, antibacterial, stimulants, sedatives and many more.
I have become a certified Aromatherapist to help people live better lives. I have taken a 50 hour course, done research on aromatherapy's use in the hospice setting and several case studies and have seen first hand how helpful this therapy is. I have become a member of NAHA (National Association of Holistic Aromatherapists). I am very excited to bring this important therapy to Hippie Momma and to be able to help you!
