Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. It enhances both physical and emotional health.

Aromatherapy is thought of as both an art and a science. Recently, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in the fields of science and medicine.

The Aromatherapy field has now broadened to cover the use of a wide variety of essential oils and absolutes, carrier and vegetable oils and plant hydrosols - also known as distillates.

Humans have used aromatherapy for thousands of years. Ancient cultures in China, India, Egypt, and elsewhere incorporated aromatic plant components in resins, balms, and oils. These natural substances were used for medical and religious purposes. They were known to have both physical and psychological benefits.

Essential oils distillation is attributed to the Persians in the 10th century, though the practice may have been in use for a long time prior to this. Information about essential oil distillation was published in the 16th century in Germany. French physicians in the 19th century recognized the potential of essential oils in treating disease.

Medical doctors became more established in the 19th century and focused on using chemical drugs. However, the French and German doctors still recognized the role of natural botanicals in treating illness.

The term 'aromatherapy' was coined by a French perfumer and chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé in a book he wrote on the topic that was published in 1937. He had previously discovered the healing potential of lavender in treating burns. The book discusses the use of essential oils in treating medical conditions.

Aromatherapy has an array of benefits. It’s said to:
- manage pain
- aid in natural skincare
- improve sleep quality
- reduce stress, agitation, and anxiety
- soothe sore joints
- treat headaches and migraines
- alleviate side effects of chemotherapy
- ease discomforts of labour

- improve digestion
- improve hospice and palliative care
- boost immunity
- and much more!

Essential oils are the whole organic substances which give plants their aroma. They are a natural concentration of the life force and power of the plant. Each has its own unique characteristics and therapeutic qualities. These oils are present in extremely small quantities, which makes the pure essence a valuable commodity.

We supply only pure unadulterated oils. They are analysed at our suppliers' own laboratories using a number of techniques including optical rotation, refractive index, specific gravity and gas chromatography to ensure quality and authenticity. Essential oils or absolutes, where diluted, are clearly listed as such.

Our oils may not be the cheapest on the market but you can be sure that you are paying for high grade oils when purchasing from us.

Our essential oils are supplied in glass bottles (with dropper tops and tamper evident caps) to prevent sunlight degradation and to avoid the 'bleeding' associated with some plastics.
