Aromatherapy Uses and Essential Oils
Bulgarian rose, French lavender, tea tree, tangerine, lemongrass, Egyptian geranium and peppermint essentials oils. All of these wonderful oils evoking our childhood memories of gardens, kitchens and exotic places. They are volatile or ethereal oils, consisting of a concentrated liquid. This liquid contains aroma compounds from a plant, such as oil of Bulgarian Rose.
Essential oils have curative effects. They were used in ancient times, and are now gaining popularity today. Due to the numerous health benefits of essential oils, they are being explored by the scientific community for treating a variety of diseases including cancer, HIV, asthma, bronchitis, heart strokes, etc. When volatilized or diluted in carrier oil, such as sweet almond oil, these oils can be used in massage therapy. The oils can be diffused in the air or heated using a candle or heater.
Scents are very powerful in our lives, from warning us that something disagreeable is around the corner, helping us to fall in love, to making us change our minds. Houses sell if they smell fresh and clean, sleep comes easy if calming oil is sprayed on our pillows, and a drop of cinnamon in the kitchen brings smiles to our faces. I, an east coast girl, vividly remember playing tennis out in California and smelling wild fennel in the breeze. In fact that helped me decided to move out to the West Coast.
Essential oils when in contact with our skin, have wonderful healing effects, from slowing down our skin’s aging process, calming nerves, energizing us, and assisting our to renew itself and regenerate. Here at Frush Botanicals, we carefully use the power of aromatherapy and essentials in creams, along with their healing effects. We want you not only to feel good, but to smell good.
