Aromatherapy - Finding Balance through Scent

Wednesday, May 04, 2016 Jen Lezan

It is so important to find balance in your life. The ups and downs of life and work can truly get the best of people sometimes. When you're going a hundred miles an hour, 7 days a week, every month, every year - the exhaustion can and will catch up to you. Juggling family, work and other obligations leaves little time for anyone to self-nurture. Finding a moment to yourself can be difficult, but it doesn't have to be impossible. Finding even just a few mindful moments can help you restore that coveted calm and balance in your life as well as open your heart to happiness. One great way to go about being mindful and present in the moment to bring back balance, is simply just to breathe. Breathing can ground you and when you add in scent it can help to calm you. 

Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process. Unlike many ingredients in cosmetic creams, essential oils penetrate all the way through the layers of your skin. They don’t “sit” on top of the skin, but they have the ability to give a boost to your skin by activating the renewal of new cells (which slows down with aging).

It was the French perfumer and chemist, Rene- Maurice Gattefosse, who coined the term “aromatherapie” in 1937 with his publication of a book by that name. His book “Gattefosse’s Aromatherapy” contains early clinical findings of utilizing essential oils for a range of physiological ailments. Gattefosse truly wanted to help differentiate and separate essential oils from their perfumery applications to showcase their medical benefits. 

Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual realm of the individual's response to aromatic extracts as well as to observe and enhance the individual's innate healing process. As a holistic practice, Aromatherapy is both a preventative approach as well as an active method to employ during acute and chronic stages of illness or disease. It is often used to improve mood, change cognitive states, and can also be utilized as a supplemental medicine.
