Making The Most of Aromatherapy Oils

The practice of aromatherapy and aromatherapy oils dates back thousands of years to Ancient China, Rome, Egypt, and Greece. This method of healing is one of the oldest in existence. Ancient man always used the methods available to him to remain healthy and well fed. This would be done with the use of plants: flowers, herbs, and oils.

When infused with natural oils such as olive oil, the aromatic plants were used to heal, for cosmetics, religious rites, as well as embalming. Perfumed oils are actually used in modern day religious practices. One reference by Shen Nung goes back to 2700BC, listing three hundred plants and their uses.

With the growing cost of health care in today’s world, many have turned to a more natural way for treatment, following ancient man. Each plant will have a different affect on the human body. It will depend upon what you wish to accomplish on which aroma would be best for you.

You can maximize the healing element of aromatherapy oils by adding them to a routine massage. Never use the oil undiluted on the human body, as it can cause irritation. Always mix your oil with carrier oil. The carrier oil will hold the essential oil's properties, while adding a liquid base so as not to over-saturate the body.

Different carrier oils are available for use, depending on what you wish to accomplish. Almond oil is smooth and easily absorbed and contains Vitamin A, which is good for dry and aging skin. Jojoba Oil is light, rich in vitamin E and aids in the healing of spots, acne, dandruff, and dry scalp. There are several other carrier oils available that come with natural vitamins and anti-bodies that aid in other healing properties. When you massage, have a two-ounce bottle of aromatherapy oil available. The mixture should be half full of the carrier oil combined with twelve to fifteen drops of the aromatherapy oil. You could add one or more oils to the carrier oil if you wish, according to your personal tastes.

Another use of aromatherapy oils is by inhalation. You can warm them in something similar to a small crockpot or on the stove in a pan. You can also heat them in something similar to an oil lamp or even a humidifier. The essence of the oil is a plant extract that readily evaporates when heated. The fragrance is part of the natural state of the herb, flower, or wood. Different smells will react differently with the human metabolism. Below is a short list of examples that can be used by either inhalation or massage method.

* Chamomile is an anti-inflammatory agent, calms and relaxes and sooths the skin.

* Cinnamon is an antiseptic that can be used to counter colds and digestion problems.

* Jasmine acts as a sedative, antidepressant, moisturizer, and can cure impotence.

* Lavender can relieve headaches and lower blood pressure.

* Thyme is an antibiotic and antiseptic.

There are many aromatherapy oils available for use, the multitude being too large to cover here. Whatever your ailment, if you wish to try the natural healing of aromatherapy, you can feel better through the oils. Whether you are ill of mind or body, you will feel better after a nice massage or by simply filling your home with the aroma of any of these ancient healing properties.
