What is Aromatherapy and How Does it Help Me?

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. It's also known as essential oil therapy. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medically, to improve the health of the body, mind and spirit. 

How does aromatherapy treatment work?

Aromatherapy treatment works through the sense of smell and skin absorption, using products like diffusers, bathing salts, body oils, and of course, candles. There are several types of essential oils available to use for aromatherapy in the mentioned forms. 

Each essential oil has an array of unique healing properties, uses and effects. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits, just like we do here at Maison Rose. You can read more about the essential oils we use for aromatherapy in a recent blog post.
