Benefits of Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that treats the mind, body and spirit. When essential oils are applied to the body during a massage, the essential oils enter the skin through the hair follicles where they are absorbed in to the blood stream and circulated around the body.

People respond to the sense of smell on an emotional level more strongly than with any other sense. In fact, a single aroma can trigger forgotten memories and induce feelings similar to those experienced at that time.


This action involves a very complex process to do with the Limbic system; an area of the brain associated with smell and memory. The olfactory nerves are located at the forefront of the brain and are responsible for sending signals about what we smell through to the Limbic System. This sensual information is then compared to that stored within the memory, and indeed the emotional response that went with that particular smell. This reaction then triggers a variety of chemical actions within the body, including the release of specific chemicals that relaxes, calms, or stimulates both body and mind.

Aromatherapy can:

  • Calm and relax

  • Destress

  • Soothe and balance

  • Stimulate and refresh

  • Energise and uplift

  • Maintain healthy joints and muscles

  • Create a tranquil, sensual and seductive ambience

  • Revive both mind and body
