Top to toe aromatherapy for beauty & healing!Whilst many people think of Aromatherapy as just ‘massage with scented oils,’ this is not simply the case.

Aromatherapy blends for the bath



Aromatherapy blends for the bathOne of my favourite ways to integrate Aromatherapy in the home is via an aromatherapy treatment bath! As an Aromatherapist I always make sure that, as well as providing a massage, I am giving great aftercare advice to ensure that my clients can make the best use of Aromatherapy themselves. What I tend to do, therefore, is send them away with a small bottle of their bespoke essential oil blend that we’ve mixed together during their treatment, so they can continue balancing their health at home! In particular, I advise that they can pop the essential oil blend into a bath to have their own mini treatment sessions – perhaps making it a regular ritual for self-care.

Chakra balancing with essential oils



Chakra balancing with essential oilsYou may remember that in March, I explored how, by applying the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, some believe that essential oils may be chosen to restore energy within the body, and that in April I focussed on the ancient Greek healthcare approach, discussing Hippocrates specifically, who believed that the moral and spiritual aspects of healing were important, and that attitude, environmental influences, and natural remedies were central for maintaining and restoring good health. This month, I conclude my research into alternative and ancient traditions by looking at the Chakra system.  This system originates from Buddhism and Hinduism, although both have different theories, with Buddhist literature mentioning four chakras, and Hindu texts stating seven: Root (Muladhara), Sacra (Svadisthana), Solar Plexus (Manipura), Heart (Anaha), Throat (Vishudda), Brow (Ajna), Crown (Sahasrara) - specific locations of each chakra will be discussed later.
