A brief history of the origins of Aromatherapy
The ancient Egyptians, Romans, and Greeks were among the first to appreciate the benefits of essential oils. Around the 13th century, the oils appeared on England’s shores. When the plague swept Europe it is said that those who used the oils survived. Maby aromatic oils have antiseptic properties.

Essential oils are highly potent and only drops are needed for your treatment. A full consultation is taken prior to treatment to establish any contra-indications. Some oils are very stimulating and should not be used in pregnancy or on epileptics.
There are two main ways that you can benefit from essential oils:
1) Skin absorption – usually through massage treatment
2) Inhalation – the sense of smell has a direct access route to the brain, which may have an immediate effect on the body.
Avoid a bath or a shower for 8 hours after an aromatherapy massage, the oils continue to be absorbed during this time. Help flush out toxins after your treatment by drinking plenty of water.
