Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it's called essential oil therapy.
"Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you." ~ Frank Lloyd Wright
The plants are our common ancestors. They follow sacred geometry. They are masters of adapting. They are with us. We are meant to smell our medicine. A pleasant scent takes one of our senses to a higher place and that makes it easier for the rest of the body to transition. Scent holds memory. The earth loves us and provides us everything we need. We could simply listen more.
The reason aroma has such a direct action: "Olfaction is the most direct interface between the brain and the outside world".
My personal experience with Aromatherapy
I've had anxiety for a long time. I tried many things, so many. I had a profound experience with Aromatherapy, and it is central to why I choose to offer Aromatherapy products. One of the first things I've found was a blend called Essence of Vali. I used to have such severe anxiety that I would wake up to throw up in the middle of the night, almost everynight. I felt that I was suffering immensly. I took to research, as i do, and I discovered this blend. When I tell you that it changed my life, it's difficult to express how much. i woke up, like i would sick, but this time i had the remedy. i put literally two drops into the bathtub and got into a warm bath. all of a sudden, i was falling asleep in the tub. it was maybe a matter of minutes. it wasn't like a drug, it didn't force me into another state, it just somehow gently lulled me, invited me and reminded me that I could rest.
The first time it really hit me that a plant was speaking to me was at a rental house I'd just moved into. I had spent the day with the Lavender outside. planted in the front of the house. ... Up until this moment, when i tell you that every single day of my life, I wanted my mom to be there. To physically be there, to make the bed for a me and bring me something to eat. Like I just depreatly needed that, but somehow the lavender told me that i didn't need that, that actually the Earth, herself is my mother. That everything that I truly needed would come from her. And it was the strangest thing, because no person could tell me that but somehow the plant did and I was able to surrender to it and know that it was true.
