Also known as the sensual science, aromatherapy combines the powers of touch with the sense of smell. Massage using essential oils is a therapeutic treatment for both mind and body, which works mainly on the nervous system, it is both holistic and practical in that it helps to protect the body’s life-saving Immune system and can energise or stabilise emotions. Aromatherapy can effectively relax mind and body through smooth and gentle strokes, or stimulate through deeper strokes to improve circulation of blood and lymph. Absorbed through the skin and inhaled through the olfactory system, essential oils are antimicrobial agents and can be useful in treating specific opportunistic infections.
