Your Nose ‘knows’ More Than You Think!

Your Nose ‘knows’ more than you think!

Having studied Aromatherapy since the age of 7 it still surprises me the amount of myth and fiction that goes around this wonderful therapy. Even Doctors have little knowledge around the topic in the UK and so the public make dangerous and disappointing assumptions about the effects of this powerful healing tool.

“Aromatherapy has a very real physical effect on the body like a medicine as well helping emotional and psychological issues.”  Tweet This!

A show earlier this year called ‘Trust Me I’m a Doctor’ did a very small experiment with some essential oils. The Doctor helping to run the experiment admitted that his assumption before the trial was that it was all a bit of hocus pocus and that it was placebo with a nice smell. However following the tests he transformed this opinion and was shocked at the results. It just goes to show how we can very easily push these ancient therapies to the side without really giving them a second look.

Aromatherapy has a very real physical effect on the body like a medicine as well helping emotional and psychological issues. You won’t see my potion of frankincense and bergamot (to focus the mind and lift my mood) far from my laptop whilst I write this article and my blogs.

I have come to use these wonderful oils in all aspects of my life both personally, on my toddler and in business. Although these oils are highly effective, they also come with a huge a warning… some of the oils can be very dangerous if used incorrectly or on someone with existing health issues such as high blood pressure.

The Spirit Sanctuary run Aromatherapy Workshops called ‘Natures Apothecary’ to teach you in a fun and informative way to incorporate aromatherapy into your life and move from treating symptoms with scientifically lab created medicines/skin products to using naturally powerful plant medicine to not only treat but to prevent.
