Aromatherapy is an ancient art, which involves the use of natural plant oils for healing, cleansing, and relaxation.
The art of aromatherapy is used to restore the harmony of the body and mind. Oil’s and essences are harnessed from plants, flowers and resins, and are applied using deep rolling and stretching massage movements to gain maximum absorption through the pores, and at the same time togive an experience that is extremely relaxing.
Thailand has many of its own wonderful herbs and spices, which are transformed into fragrant oils. They haveboth medicinal and balancing properties. Some of the more typical arejasmine, rose, lavender and eucalyptus.
The pure essential oil is the vital ingredient in any type of aromatherapy treatment. These oils are very different from day to day oils. They are much more concentrated and thus known as essenses for very good reason.
Essence is a natural living substance of a plant. The extraction of essences is a very delicate operation and can be very time consuming.
Essence oils are easily penetrated into the skin due to their high concentration. As these essences are evaporated they are also inhaled via the millions of sensitive cells in the nasal passage. These cells send messages to the brain and thereby enhance both physical and psychological well-being.
