Our inner life can mirror nature; plant growth slows and the soil has a chance to rest and repair ready for the warmer active months ahead. Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic plants in the form of essential oils to help support and enhance health both physical and emotionally. Essential oils are a concentrated form of the healing compounds found in plants or produced during the extraction process.
Begin by choosing essential oils with the desired properties and spend some time inhaling the healing scent from the bottle. The oils that resonate with us will be the ones to use, they will smell ‘divine’ and ‘delicious’. If we are needing essential oils to gently support and lift our spirits we will be pulled toward ones with uplifting and balancing properties. We can then choose how to apply the essential oils in a way that will be simple, fit into our lifestyle and will allow us some restorative down time.
