Essential Oils & Aromatherapy 

So much more than beautiful smelling oils.....

 

How do they Work?

Essential oils work similarly to conventional drugs in that their plant chemicals enter the bloodstream and work on the different systems of the body & mind. They are effective for physical issues but also work on emotional & spiritual needs as well....truly holistic! Each essential oil has various active plant constituents which have different healing or health promotion properties.

 

My Holistic Birth School 'Aromatherapy for Pregnancy, Childbirth & Motherhood' course will transform the way you address yours and your family's health needs. You will go from novice to expert as you will acquire all the knowledge and confidence needed to safely select your essential oils depending on which healing properties you require, or health issues you wish to address. You will then easily and safely prepare them in a way that best suits your needs. 

You will also learn to create a 'blend' or 'synergy' of Essential Oils in a particular treatment or cosmetic, so that you are treating yourself (or your family member) 'holistically', (as a whole person), not just on isolated symptoms, but addressing the potential cause of the 'dis-ease' or emotional issue as well.....something pharmaceutical treatments just don't do!

 

You will also learn to use Essential oils  in simple and effective home cleaning recipes and toiletries therefore allowing you to reduce the amount of chemicals in your home.

 

It is so very comforting to know that the surfaces that your baby's little fingers eat from, the bath you bathe their little bodies in, the floors they will crawl on are not coated in harsh chemicals. Their air will be cleaner, the chemicals that go down your plug hole and the plastic that goes in your bin polluting their future world will be less (not to mention saving a fortune on products).

 

More than this, you will create your own legacy as you pass these simple practices onto future generations, leading by example, creating a new normal, and being the mother who cares naturally.

the science bit........

Pure, Therapeutic Grade Essential oils contain numerous naturally occurring chemical constituents which can have a direct physiological / & or psychological effect on our bodies on a cellular level (just as drugs do). Each  individual  oil has it's own unique profile which can affect different systems / emotions in the body. In fact the molecules of many essential oils are so small that they can reach many places that conventional drug can not, including passing through the blood / brain barrier.

 

Upon inhalation (smelling), & via every method of treatment (see below for examples), Essential Oil molecules bind to receptors in the nose (olfactory cells) & travel directly to the brain (limbic system - thought to be the seat of emotions & memory) & then onto the lungs. Subsequently, the Essential Oil Molecules are then distributed via the blood stream into the general circulation, and to all parts of the body.
