From the 10th to the 16th June aromatherapy awareness week is a campaign that highlights to the general public, the wonderful benefits that aromatherapy has to offer.
Also known as French marjoram and in botanical terms as Origanum majorana. I don’t know of anyone who has disliked this aroma. It gives out a warm, spicy, herby fragrance that immediately calms and soothes.
Human touch can reduce our cortisol levels leading to lower stress levels. It can help reduce our heart rate and lower blood pressure. In fact a lack of human touch can cause a physical stress on our bodies.
Strengthening, restoring and uplifting. A major oil for the nervous system. One powerful oil with a wide range of actions.
Do you smell orange? Maybe lemon, or could it be lime? Think earl grey tea with a slice of lemon.
Who would have thought that the pot of basil in your kitchen could be so powerful when the oil is used in aromatherapy? The aroma has me salivating. I adore its properties.
Geranium is a little like marmite. You either love it or hate it! Personally I love it. Not the actual plant as I don’t like the aroma at all but the oil I think is amazing….
Lavender. The one essential oil that people will always hold some knowledge about it. Most think it is one of the safest oils but are they right?
Think of the smell of rice pudding. Warming, comforting and calming. A childhood memory for many. Such a complex oil in both its chemistry and aroma. A prime musculoskeletal and psychological oil helping with many emotional issues.
Flamboyant and expressive. Vibrant, provocative sensual and showy. Ylang Ylang is a euphoric oil and one most associated with being an aphrodisiac.
