Essential Oils and Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy - Enhancing wellness through the application of Therapeutic Grade Pure Essential Oils
Historically the earliest records of the use of aromatic oils and their healing significance goes back to Egypt, India and China.
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of pure volatile aromatic oils and substances which helps the rejuvenation and regeneration of the human body. In nature, those aromatic compounds are found in different parts of the plant - the petals, flowers, leaves, stems, stalks bark and resins, and they help protect the the plant against invasion from insects and microbial organisms each in their own unique way.
These volatile aromatic compounds, known as Essential Oils, are living plant hormones with the ability to be absorbed to the deepest levels of the connective tissue. They are generally applied with massage, packs or inhalation and are able to provide a safe and effective means of warding of illness. There there is even a science of using the oils internally when the oils have been grown and harvested and matured to a state of non-toxic purity. Depending on how and where they are applied each oil has a specific purpose.
My specialty is using these therapeutic essentials oils in the AromaTouch Technique - a clinical approach to essential oil application.

Environmental factors can have a negative impact on overall health and well-being, disturbing homeostasis - the balance our bodies need to function optimally. Such challenges, even when they do not immediately result in disease, cause our bodies to function below optimal levels.
These include the following:

Emotional distress, career choices, family discord, financial worries, and the like elevate stress levels. Clinical studies have linked high stress and chronic stress to numerous negative health conditions.
Exposure to a wide array of toxic insults, including disease-causing pathogens; hormone and pesticide contaminated food products; and increased levels of free-radicals from pollution, foods and cleaners, contributes to rises in the occurrence of varying illnesses
The increased consumption of food with pro-inflammatory components (foods high in polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn and peanut oil) together with high-carbohydrate, low-protein diets contribute to increased inflammation in body systems. Stress, with its accompanying imbalance of cortisol, can also contribute to inflammation, as do various (and increasingly prevalent)immunological dysfunctions. Studies increasingly show links between fatal diseases and inflammation.
The opposite of homeostasis, an imbalance of the autonomic nervous system ( aka ANS or visceral nervous system) can negatively impact health in a number of ways. Restoring the body's homeostasis can reduce the physiological impact of stressers on the body.
