Aromatherapy Essential Oils

Throughout the course of history, the herbal kingdom was heavily relied upon to increase and maintain mental, physical and spiritual health.

Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said the ‘ way to health is to have an aromatic bath and scented massage each day.’ Egyptian priests used aromatic substances not only to embalm the body but also to treat manias, depression and nervousness. Yet long before the Egyptian and Greek cultures, the eastern cultures of China and India were successfully using plant extracts and essential oils for their healing and restorative properties.

Essential oils are life enhancing gifts from the plant kingdom. One of the most satisfying characteristic of essential oils is that they enter and leave the body with ease and great efficiency while leaving no toxins behind. It is worth reflecting on the mixed fates of the many types of medicine and medicaments we, as humans have developed since the world began. Time after time we find ourselves coming to full circle and returning to medicine of the ordinary simple folk, that of using plants extracts and oils; when we find our health condition has failed to respond to the whole gamut of modern therapies.

The most effective method of use of essential oils is not orally but rather by inhalation or application. Healing Blends soaps, therapeutic bath soaks, remedy oils and aromatherapy oils utilize both the inhalation and application methods of adding essential oils to your health regime.

Presently there are about 300 or so essential oils in use today by professional practitioners. While each oil has its own medicinal properties, the average household could fulfill all its likely and most immediate needs with about 10. Here at Healing Blends we have blended some for your convenience in our remedy blends line. Starting today and over the next several months we will introduce our line of aromatherapy essential oils by beginning with what we consider the 10 most important essential oils that no home should be without. We will endeavor to source these oils from the various countries to which they are indigenous.

Use them confidently knowing that you have thousands of years of the wisdom of ancient civilizations behind you as well as the unfailing and dedicated support of our company, where your path to wellness is our main concern.
