As long as humans have been around, we’ve used plants for healing. Plant essences, aromas, scents + color have always uplifted our senses. The very first medicine was herbal. However Aromatherapy, the use of aromatic scents as therapy, has been around for 6000+ years!
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils taken from plants for healing.
The word ‘aroma’ makes it sound as if the essential oils are inhaled, which they are. But that’s not the only way they work.
They also are absorbed into the blood stream. Through the nose + lungs when we inhale. And through the skin when applied topically. The skin becomes where we absorb them when massaged. And they can also be absorbed through the skin using baths.
We don’t recommend eating, drinking or using essential oils in cooking. That’s for herbs. And the top-ranked Aromatherapists in the world agree with SchoolofCT!
So, whether inhaled or applied on the skin, essential oils are gaining new attention for natural healing. They’re especially effective for infections + stress. All the different essential oils have healing properties. Which we teach you all about.
They are effective holistically. Which means you learn about how they affect body, mind, emotions + spirit.
There are a number of career paths for the budding Aromatherapist.
It’s also a fabulous way of treating yourself + your family to wellness and health care.
To be honest, with the cost of allopathic medicine going up all the time. Well, isn’t it time to get pro-active about our own health maintenance?
For over 6000 years, we’ve been using essential oils for therapeutic purposes. It’s definitely not new! The ancient Chinese, Indians, Egyptians, Greeks + Romans used them in cosmetics, perfumes. And also as drugs.
Additionally, essential oils were also commonly used for spiritual, therapeutic + hygiene. As well, spiritual use in ritual has been popular in all cultures.
Wanna know a little about how it works?
We have these ‘smell’ receptors in our noses. Which then communicate with parts of our brains. (Namely, the amygdala + hippocampus.) These serve as storehouses for emotions + memories. (How cool is that?) When we breathe in essential oil molecules, researchers believe they stimulate these parts of our brains.
And thereby influence physical, emotional, and mental health.
For example, scientists believe lavender stimulates the activity of brain cells in the amygdala. This works in a similar way to some sedative medications.
In addition, research proves that molecules from essential oils interact in the blood with hormones + enzymes.
