It makes good "scents" to breathe! Words from an aromatherapist...

During times of stress, we can restore our spirits and rejuvenate our faith, with the healing practice of aromatherapy, and by BREATHING! 

Aromatherapy is both an art and a science. It is rooted in the healing practices of ancient civilizations. Essential oils were used more than 4,000 years ago in China, Egypt, India and the Middle East. Inspired by the traditional medicines of these cultures, the healing science of aromatherapy employs fragrant plant/flower extracts for treatments. Essential oils work their physical, emotional and psychological wonders by interacting with the olfactory nerves, or entering through the skin; thus, affecting the limbic system in the brain. In these ways, they reach the bloodstream directly. Once they are absorbed, the oils enter the lymphatic and blood capillary systems, benefiting circulation as well as the sinuses and lungs.
