What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of highly aromatic essential oils–substances that occur naturally in plants.  Essential oils are obtained from a variety of plants by steam distillation or cold expression—such as from a fruit peel. They are comprised of hundreds of chemical components that can complement one’s physical and emotional well-being. These chemical components determine the essential oil properties—such as antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, sedating, or uplifting—to name a few.

 **Ingestion is not recommended- unless you are working with a medical aromatherapist.  Please be aware that ingested essential oils go through a detoxification process that may be harmful to your liver and/or interfere with any medications you are taking. 

Coming Soon!  12 hour Aromatherapy workshop for nurses and other healthcare workers.  This workshop will give the education and skills to implement an aromatherapy program in your clinical setting- hospital, clinic, or long-term care setting.
