Aromatherapy for the novice
Aromatherapy has been going on for centuries and has recently risen over the past few years. Our ancestors used smells to promote their health and well-being. Essential oils have also been claimed to provide certain therapeutic properties for the treatment of certain diseases. So if the beginning of aromatherapy is what you are looking for, you need to be informed, it is extremely important.
Essential oils derived from plants or flowers of scent
- Essential oils from plant extracts from distillation or steam
- Plant infusions
- Herbal concentrations such as chamomile and lemon grass
- Evaporators of raw herbs
As a beginner, look for a very good deal for recognized retailers. There are local health food stores that supply transport equipment, but not necessarily the highest quality. In addition, some reputable postal delivery companies offer a better quality choice at a cheaper price. Avoid purchasing items on handicrafts or street fairs until you gain more experience in assessing the quality of your products.
In order to keep the fragrances effective, they should be stored in a dark glass container in a cool dark cabinet, box or chest. Light can affect the scent power and destroy certain ingredients. Never use a plastic drip top or rubber stopper as it may damage the oil.
The next step as a novice is to consider recipes that are attractive to you. Internet or sites selling essential oils are great places to find interesting recipes. It should be understood that oils should always be diluted and not concentrated.
There are many ways to use aromatherapy oils. The most commonly used application is by direct inhalation. This can be achieved if the scent is inhaled by the nose or the mouth (consult your doctor before taking any oral excitement). Another way of using essential oils is local applications.
Beginners need to understand the safety guidelines when practicing aromatherapy. Essential oils are highly concentrated and can be harmful if they are misused. The most important safety precaution is to place undiluted essential oils directly on the skin. This can cause skin irritation and health problems. Essential oils are very flammable and should never be exposed to open flame.
Aromatherapy can be a fun and rewarding activity. Collect as much information as you can and find caution.
