is aromatherapy? It is the use of
essential oils and aromatic plants in a clinical, therapeutic or
shamanic practice to heal. Aromatherapy
is not just about the smell or scent of the oil.
That scent of the oils gives us volumes of information that pertain
to their healing potentialities. The Soil, water, air,
the purity of environment, stress on the plant, social-economic conditions,
etc. all affect the production of the chemicals which make up the
essential oils in flowers, herbs and trees. Many sensitive people
can smell the oil and determine many details of the origin of that
oil. Emotional and mental states are often transcended by aromas.
After all, haven’t you smelled something you love, only to realize
that you have been daydreaming for many minutes and forgetting about
what had been bothering you?
is Pranic Intelligence! The Plants create essential
oils for their own protection, for reproduction, and to draw in pollinators.
The chemicals within them are highly specialized for their effects.
Allowing the oils to reach into your mind and consciousness to find
the memories, images, visions your deep self will provide to help
you heal. However, even without that sensitivity, or even without
the ability to smell at all, much healing can occur on many levels.
The essential oils are
the most potent distillation form aromatic plants. The qualities each
plant posses holds keys to transformation for health, physically,
mentally and emotionally. Because of this potency, and the high accessibility
of aromatherapy, it has become a household word whose meaning runs
deep in many regions of the world. Even if a tradition does not refer
to their practices as “aromatherapy”, most have traditional
teas, resins and oil imbibed with rich plant material for traditional
healing functions. Many regions have oils or resins whose uses are
recorded in history books. Why are these plants so revered for their
effects, scents, etc? Essential Oils
are highly regarded in Aruvedic medicine as the strongest potency
available for certain plants. When applied neat on the skin, particular
oils benefit in eradicating germs and healing wounds. When applied
with unguent base oils, through baths, diffusers, compresses, massage
or direct inhalation; all essential oils have health benefits.
There are over 400 plants
whose essential oils are cultivated for therapeutic use. The plant
material is distilled, and this process separates the rich oil from
the water in the plant and two products are rendered; the essential
oil and the hydrosol. The hydrosols of almost all plants are safest
for use around sensitive persons, on the skin directly, and even internally.
Most essential oils are not used internally however, and should never
be assumed they are safe for ingestion.
During a Healing aromatic
treatment the primary function of the essential oils are to transfer
the pranic intelligence of the plants throughout the body, assisting
the body in radically enhancing the available healing potentiality
inherent in our bodies and to enhance the treatment involved. The
Essential oils are applied to the body “anointing” hands,
feet, head, neck, areas of pain, etc. Or the essential oils are simply
just smelled in order to benefit health and well -being.
