Does Aromatherapy really work?

When a method of healing persists through thousands of years and at least several dozen cultures over the world, you know you’ve found something that can be truly beneficial to your own health.  Such is the case with aromatherapy.  
Few approaches promise the gentle yet effective benefits that working with essential oils can deliver, and in such an enjoyable way.

Aromatherapy is far from mystifying, though many are daunted at the choices of oils available and their effects.  There are so many options!  And so many of them are pleasant to use.  In fact, most of the oils used have an enjoyable smell for the majority of users, though that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to using aromatherapy for healing.

What are essential oils? 
They are the distilled and purified oil from specific plants and herbs.  The oils typically in a home, such as coconut oil, olive oil, etc. are similar in nature, but essential oils are much stronger, and can even be so strong that they cause skin irritation and digestive problems if used incorrectly.  

Essential oils are one of the safest options for use both at home and in the clinic.  The general rule is not to add them to food or drink, or to not use them undiluted on skin or on sensitive areas, unless specifically directed to.  The specific directions for each oil will be covered in this course, so that you can best use each oil for yourself, your clients, and your patients.

Many people think aromatherapy is too gentle to be effective, though that’s not the case.  
While some oils can be relaxing, such as lavender.  Others are powerful immune boosters that can help your body ward off even the most noxious of infections, such as oil of oregano and frankincense.  Still others, like peppermint and ginger, can greatly improve digestion and mental alertness.

Hospitals are even taking notice of the benefits seen in patients when aromatherapy is used as an adjunct therapyBetween an improved patient outlook to faster recovery and overall more dramatic improvements in health, allowing patients to use essential oils in their healing journey has immeasurable benefits.

While the most obvious applications are for improving your own health and the health of those you care about, essential oils are useful for other applications too
Summer is full of biting insects, and oils like lemongrass and citronella can help keep them away.  Lemon and tea tree oil make perfect additions to homemade cleaner, they’re antibacterial without using industrial chemicals.  (Plus they smell nice, so add the oil mix to some baking soda to sprinkle in sweaty sports bags!)  Or, use eucalyptus oil in a diffuser in the bathroom as an air purifier for the moist environment.

Creativity is welcomed in the field of aromatherapy, since there are so many options with oils to use. 
For example, if you enjoy peppermint patties, using peppermint oil in a homemade recipe is a perfect choice.  You can make a face scrub with rose oil to improve complexion and reduce blemishes.  Or, you could try a bit of rosemary oil in your conditioner for thicker, faster growing hair.

Is it starting to sound like aromatherapy offers a panacea of benefits?  That’s certainly how I feel about it, having seen the great results in my own life and those I treat in my practice. 
From improved physical health, to greater sharpness in thinking, from a broader spiritual practice, to improved emotional balance, I’ve seen essential oils effectively used in a broad range of conditions. 

As a Certified Aromatherapist (through the Canadian Federation of Aromatherapists)the online course I have recently created is my masterwork, and brings my vast knowledge and skill to your fingertips.  I invite you to learn more on the course page, which you can find at :

Healing Aromas” is more than just a course. 
It’s a partnership, where you not only have information and references, but the ability to open up conversations, ask questions, and share the stories of successful therapies.  I look forward to seeing you inside!
