Aroma Therapy is a natural and when used correctly, safe way to treat many common issues that we have to deal with. Whether you are experiencing minor inconveniences from the stress of daily life, or are experiencing the side effects of a major illness my customized blends of essential oils can help.
This is the reason why I began to practice aroma therapy in the first place. I saw the need to help patients at the hospital where I work as a Registered Nurse, without just giving people more pills. In the medical field there is a growing realization of the benefits of natural essential oils. For example more and more acute care facilities are using essential oils to help patients with sleep, nausea and pain. Thru research and evident based practice, they have come to appreciate the value of using the essential oils.
Treating the Stresses of Everyday Life
Everyone is usually tiered. We have busy lives and lots of stress, but when you have trouble sleeping it compounds the problem. How can aroma therapy help? But by using customized, blended essential oils you can get a better nights sleep. Using the oils as a massage on your hands or feet this will help you to fall asleep faster and sleep better. Or how about a blend to spray on the linens then every time you move the scent fills the room to help you relax and fall back asleep.
Now what about nausea whether from a “touch of a bug” or pregnancy, how about from stress? I can help with not only a custom blended oi but also with a specially prepared herbal tea. Using scents and flavors that you like. As always safety is my priority so I will blend the essential oils in the right percent. As very few essential oils can be safely ingested. Also, the blended percent’s are different for children, the elderly or those with weakened immune systems.
These are just two of the everyday pains that you can use Aroma Therapy for. It is also effective in treating:
- Sinus headaches
- Soreness from a sitting all day
- Sore muscles
- Poor circulation
- Cold sores
- Insects/spider bites and stings
- Many more
- Cuts and scar reductions
Knowing the right oil for the job is important, that is why I have taken in depth classes to know which oil works for the various ways we suffer from pain.
Aroma Therapy and coping with Major Illnesses
Major and chronic illnesses often affect the entire body. They require proper medical diagnosis, treatment and medication. Aroma therapy doesn’t replace that. But it can be a huge help with coping with the side effects the illness has on the body, as well as side effects of medication.
My customized oil blends will help without interfering with the medication you are on. This is were being a Registered Nurse is really helpful, allowing me to be familiar with medications and their side effects and how to blend oils that won’t interfere with them.
Some side effects it helps with are:
- trouble sleeping
- stomach pain
- arthritis pain
- Skin irritation
