Skin Care With Aroma Therapy

Aromatherapy has been around us, and practiced in one or other shape since the beginning of civilization. It is an art and science of using oils extracted from aromatic plants to enhance our health and beauty.

Today, aromatherapy is widely practiced all over the world. It is often integrated into holistic treatments, and is used in spa treatments and massage oil, and other relaxation products. Aromatherapy can give glow, not only to your hair but to your skin also.

Aroma therapy, a massage factor to pamper your skin

  • Massage is perhaps the most popular way to use essential oils. It combines the healing art of aromatherapy with the healing art of touch.
  • Self-massage is just as effective as being massaged by another person, and lack of a partner is no excuse for not trying these relaxing recipes.
  • Always use essential oils diluted in carrier oil. Never place them directly onto the skin.
  • As a general rule, do not exceed ten drops of total essential oils per mixture, and try to keep it around five for maximum effectiveness.
  • Read all the precautions at the bottom before using.

Aromatherapy-some Do's and Don'ts

Do's

  • It is very easy to get started with Aromatherapy, but there are safety issues that you need to be aware of. Always have the habit of reading the instructions given on the bottle. This is because; many oils have the nature of irritation if used on the wrong type of skin.
  • Be selective of where you purchase your essential oils. The quality of essential oils varies widely from company to company. Additionally, some companies may falsely claim that their oils are undiluted or pure when they aren't. Be aware of these issues.
  • It is also helpful to note the country of origin for the oil. Most good essential oil sellers will readily supply the botanical names and country of origin for the oils that they sell. When comparing one company's oils with another's, also pay attention to if either company's oils are organic, wild-crafted or ethically farmed.

Don'ts

  • Differentiate between perfume oils and therapeutic oils. Don't buy perfume oils thinking they are the same thing as essential oils. Perfume oils do not offer the therapeutic benefits of essential oils. Even if you only intend on using aromatherapy in your lifestyle for the sheer enjoyment of the aroma, essential oils that are breathed in can offer therapeutic benefits. These benefits do not occur with the use of perfume oils.
  • Don't buy essential oils with rubber glass dropper tops. Essential oils are very concentrated and will turn the rubber to a gum thus ruining the oil.
  • It is better not to purchase oils from vendors at street fairs, craft shows, or other limited-time events. Some vendors know beginners have no recourse against them later. This is not to say that there are not highly reputable sellers at such events, but this is a caution for beginners who are not able to reliably judge quality.
