Today the whole world has a renewed interest in traditional healing practices which are natural, sustainable, and holistic in nature. In the past couple of years, many of us have switched to traditional Ayurvedic remedies to enhance our immunity and heal from all kinds of diseases.
One of these remedies is aromatherapy. It is a very old technique that uses essential oils for therapeutic purposes, both physically and mentally. Therefore these oils are responsible for transmitting natural properties through applications and treatments.
Many of us have only recently discovered the power of aroma and its multiple healing properties. Apart from many immediate mental health benefits, aromatherapy is proving to be an efficient solution for physical ailments like joint and muscle pain, swelling, insect bite etc.
Anatomically speaking, each sense has a direct channel to the brain and therefore the stimulation of each of the senses has an effect throughout the physiology. Stimulation of the sense of smell through the aromas has a direct effect on the emotions and the mind.
For thousands of years Ayurveda has used this ability using aromas chosen for their balancing effects, while taking into account the constitution of the person. The thing that distinguishes Ayurvedic aromas is the unique way of mixing different aromatic oils.
The amalgamation of smell, memory and emotions explains why aroma has the power to influence our moods and psychological well being. It also explains why leading ambient products rely on fragrances to evoke certain responses among consumers.
Aromatherapy is an alternative, holistic, and integrative approach. It is often used in conjunction with massage, meditation, and other therapies to embark on the path of healing. Our modern lifestyles demand more everyday, thus healing practices have become a part of daily life.
