Philosophy - Aromatherapy - The marvel of aromatherapy
The world’s most renowned and scientifically proven therapies that simultaneously treat the skin, body and mind
Aromatherapy entered in modern era in 1930 when the French chemist René Maurice Gattefossé coined the mentioned term for the therapeutic use of essential oils. Fascinated by the benefits of lavender oil in healing his burned hand without leaving any scars, he started investigating the effect of other essential oils for healing and for their psychotherapeutic benefits.
Aromatherapy is widely renowned as working harmonizing on the mind and body complementary and simultaneously in symbiosis. Scientific studies have shown that essential oils contain components that can exert specific effects on the mind and body.
Fragrances, smells, colors, emotions and feelings are all experienced in the same regions of the brain. Each essential oil has a vibration (electromagnetic wave) and each vibration relates to a color. Everything in the universe is made of energy. What differentiates one form of energy from another is the speed at which it vibrates. The light vibrates at a very high frequency, a rock vibrates in a much lower frequency. Human beings also vibrate at a certain frequencies.
Our thoughts and feelings can determine the frequency at which we vibrate, and our vibration goes out into an ambience and attracts to us energy that donates us a serene feeling or the opposite.
Essential oils have a favorable activity on electromagnetic domain of the organism, they are valued oils, have a deep pH value and a high electrical resistance that make our products extremely useful for a prevention or prospective cure.
Aromas are sensed and analyzed in the reticular system of the brain stem. In this system, emotions, memories, and attention are connected. Herein lies one of the great powers of aromatherapy: it can help to heal some physical imbalances of the body. Certain aromas stimulate the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls the endocrine system and many body functions. The hypothalamus may then activate the pituitary gland, which produces hormones that can affect both the physical body and the emotions.
Hormones influence emotions and behavior as well as regulate the activities of organs or specific groups of cells in the body. There is an evidence of a link between scent and immune system function. The human sense of smell is vastly more sensitive than the other senses. We can detect many hundreds of different scents, and in some cases we can detect the presence of only a few molecules of a particular fragrance.
Aromatherapy has the potential to tap into a person’s state of health in a way that is both unique and powerful.
