Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived.
– Helen Keller
As we know, Hellen Keller could not see and was left to her other senses to interpret the world. In many ways it allowed her to explore the other senses more freely and led to her beautiful renditions of experience. Not only is aroma so closely linked with our memory and emotions, it’s nature’s way of communicating with us through our most powerful sense – that of smell.
Aromatherapy is the utilization of scent to impact our wellbeing. Extracted from plants, essential oils form the backdrop to an organic aromatic experience. The nose acts as a gateway and by simply smelling an oil, chemical messages travel to and activate several areas of the brain. The result could be a relaxation response, a boost in focus, and as Hellen notes – can even transport us to another place and time.
The benefits of aromatherapy reach far and wide. I have been working with medicinal plants for almost two decades. My early research demonstrated promising findings in many areas currently dominated by modern medicine.
Since, I have witnessed how aromatherapy can successfully address symptoms such as pain, insomnia, mental health and more. This inspired me to gain more education as an aromatherapist and seek opportunities to put clinical aromatherapy to the test.
One area I’ve witnessed essential oils touch lives the most is with the sick and elderly. In 2013 I was invited to work with a nursing home to address symptoms they were struggling to manage. The gentle and subtle way essential oils soothe what ailed senior citizens was welcomed and needed. Witnessing their relief lead me to continue my work in eldercare in addition to providing essential oils and aromatherapy education to other sectors and the general consumer.
It is not just the good smells, it’s the good life. A life I want to share with you. Pause for a moment and think about it:
Envision a life rich with vitality and joy, replete with pleasure and freedom. Imagine a simple inhale carries you into a state of bliss, healing body, mind and soul at once.
This is the Aromatic Life!
I hope to see you there.
