In general, Essential Oil based Aromatherapy is useful for:
For our purposes, we use Essential Oils for Aromatherapy in two ways:
Aromatically in the form of Inhalation:
Different types of Inhalation
Direct inhalation: refers to sniffing or inhaling an essential oil directly from a bottle, a handkerchief or a cotton-ball. Direct inhalation is most commonly used for the relief of emotional distress and as supportive therapy for respiratory congestion or other respiratory ailments. Direct inhalation is also used for its effect on the nervous system.
Direct palm inhalation: refers to sniffing or inhaling an essential oil directly from the palms of your hands. Direct palm inhalations are most commonly utilized for the relief of emotional distress, to uplift and transform ones consciousness, or simply to relax and breathe. It can be used as supportive therapy for respiratory congestion or other respiratory ailments.
Topically in the form of direct application or dilution in Massage lotion:
Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and many can be safely applied topically when used in conjunction with a carrier oil, such as Fractionated Coconut Oil. For the purposes of massage, essential oils are applied directly to the skin and/or diluted in Massage lotion in order to target specific areas of tension or pain.
