Do you know the difference between essential oils and essences?
Essential oils are natural substances extracted from plants by distillation or other methods. The essences , on the other hand, are synthetic solutions that artificially "reproduce" the fragrances present in nature.
Essential oils are substances extracted from plants, liquid, concentrated and volatile, that is, capable of evaporating quickly in the air. Plants use these substances in two ways: both as self- defense , that is to prevent animals from feeding on them, and as a form of attraction to ensure pollination .
Energies of the Chakras
Eastern tradition says that there are seven main centers through which energy flows in the human body, crucial points where mind and body communicate.
According to tradition, the overall health of the person depends on a correct circulation of energy through these chakras . Essential oils are a valuable tool that help maintain the balance between energies and allow them to flow freely in the body without being hindered.
The " aromas " deriving from essential oils exert a great influence on man , this is because the information coming from the sense of smell stimulates areas of the brain in relation to emotional states , mood, hormonal regulation, aggression, sexuality etc.
Aromatherapy is a branch of herbal medicine that involves the use of essential oils to benefit the mind and body .
Those who rely on aromatherapy usually are to counteract particular ailments such as:
- Nervousness, anxiety and stress
- Articolar pains
- Menstrual cramps
Essential oils can be diffused into the environment through a diffuser or poured onto a handkerchief (2-3 pure drops) to smell : this mode is particularly suitable for promoting meditation.
They can also be useful for foot baths, hand baths or relaxing baths. If you don't have a bathtub you can apply a few drops on the sponge and enjoy the shower surrounded by an explosion of perfume.
