About Essential Oils
Historians date aromatherapy back to the 11th century with the first recorded instance of steam distillation removing the essential oils from plant material. Common countries that embrace aromatherapy include India. Without a doubt, trade with India brought aromatherapy to the west. Today, the practice is popular in France, England, and even the United States. However, people all over the world practice aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is more complex than some assume. You may hear words like “carrier oils,” “herbal distillates,” “phytoncides,” or “absolutes” thrown around. The processes behind aromatherapy are complex and take time to understand. For this reason, an experienced aromatherapist can answer any questions you may have about the components. In particular, they can explain how they concoct their personalized treatment for you.

Eucalyptus Aromatherapy Oils

Its strong scent and distinctive feel stimulate the senses. The scent is so strong; it can be used as a decongestant.
Eucalyptus oil has many uses in aromatherapy. For one thing, many people use it in saunas and steam rooms to refresh and cleanse skin. Additionally, this oil pairs well with other essentials for effectiveness.

People believe lemon oil strengthens the immune system while it wards off depression. Finally, the aroma of lemons clears the sinuses, making it perfect for people suffering from congestion.
Ylang-Ylang Aromatherapy Oils
Ylang-yang has a delicate, pleasing aroma often incorporated in perfumes. In aromatherapy, ylang-ylang is popular for its antidepressant properties. Additionally, it acts as a sedative, calming frazzled nerves and inducing a relaxed feeling. At the same time, it boosts libido for a healthier, more active sex drive. At this point, you can just call ylang-ylang “Doctor Feelgood.”
Lavender Aromatherapy Oils
Some people consider lavender oil “the only essential oil you’ll need.” Lavender is a favorite oil for relaxation and the promotion of restful sleep. Furthermore, lavender has tremendous healing powers. It helps heal bug bites, disinfects cuts, soothes chapped skin, and alleviates nausea. That’s a powerful weapon to have in your aromatherapy arsenal.
