Winter-Spring Aromatherapy

Updated: Feb 27

Aromatherapy is a modern term for an ancient healing practice that has been used for thousands of years. The original Ayurvedic texts describe how burning herbs, flowers, bark, and resin not only enhances our consciousness but also benefits the healing process by using medicated oils, salves, and poultices. Modern aromatherapy practices use highly concentrated oil extracts known as essential oils that are distilled from flowers, fruits, herbs, grasses, and trees.

During distillation, the plant material is placed inside a still. Steaming breaks through the plant material, extracting its volatile constituents. These constituents rise upward through a connecting pipe into a condenser. The condenser cools the rising vapor back into liquid form, collected in a vessel below the condenser. Because water and oil do not mix, the water is siphoned off, leaving the oil.

When we use essential oils, tiny molecules enter our bloodstream, producing hormones that control our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual functions and influence our consciousness, memories, desires, and creativity. Many people experience powerful results using these oils—including relief from migraine headaches, joint pain, skin rashes, anxiety, insomnia, and many other physical and emotional conditions.

This Winter-Spring balancing blend rejuvenates with anti-depressant actions that invigorate the mind and nervous system.  Its decongestant properties bring respiratory opening, and it is a digestive tonic.
