Aromatherapy is a Powerful Holistic Therapy

Aromatherapy is a beautiful and powerful form of Alternative Medicine in which Essential Oils, often in combination with other Holistic Therapies such as massage, are used for the purpose of improving physical, psychological and emotional well-being.  The term “essential oils” refers to liquids extracted and distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant.

Each essential oil contains the true essence of the natural plant it was derived from.  Contrary to the name, these highly aromatic oils aren’t oily feeling at all.  Most are also colorless, but some (such as patchouli, orange and lemongrass) are amber or yellow in color.  When used by a properly trained practitioner, these concentrated, fragrant liquids have been known to provide amazing health benefits!  The best part about wanting to Learn Aromatherapy today, is that here  at SWIHA, you can get educated on-campus or online!
