Nature is described in the Encarta Dictionary as "the intrinsic or essential qualities of somebody or something."
The key word there is the word intrinsic, which is defined as "basic and essential: belonging to something as one of the basic and essential features that make it what it is."
How better to describe Aromatherapy than as basic and essential? Everyone knows that anything natural is not man-made. This means everything we need to live well and have happy healthy lives already exists in the world and did before any of us were here to doubt it.
If we trust it, nature can play a very large role in the healing process and recovery of any kind and can help enhance our bodies' innate ability to heal itself. There is no end to the amount of knowledge we have within us and in nature, yet we have forgotten or refuse to tap the endless well.
What is Aromatherapy and How Can it be Used?
Aromatherapy can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from nature to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It is an art and science which seeks to explore the physiological, psychological and spiritual levels of an individual's response to aromatic extracts.
The art of Aromatherapy is also designed to observe and enhance the individual's innate healing process. It is a holistic medicine used as both a compliment to traditional medicine to help prevent illness and actively treat acute and chronic illness or disease as well as promote a more natural and healthy lifestyle.
Aromatherapy can be a very complete treatment in and of itself; however it's a wonderful compliment to energy work and traditional medicines. Its use helps amplify the benefits by combining the senses with smell, touch and a calming meditative state. The use of professional quality oils, flower essences and hydrosols along with Reiki energy that taps into the Chakra system or traditional medicine, is a highly powerful combination!
