Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil therapy, can be defined as the art and science of utilizing naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to balance, harmonize and promote the health of body, mind and spirit. It seeks to unify physiological, psychological and spiritual processes to enhance an individual’s innate healing process. As the practice of aromatherapy has progressed, over the years, it has adopted a more holistic approach encompassing the whole body, mind and spirit (energy).
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years and were the primary source of perfumes for the ancient civilizations of Egypt, India, Greece, and Rome. Essential oils have been found in 3,000 year old tombs in the Pyramids, and early Greek physicians, including Hippocrates, mentioned aromatic plant essences and oil massages for their healing and mood-enhancing qualities. The Romans associated essential oils and their fine aromas with wealth and success. Ayurvedic medicine, the world’s oldest healing system, has long recommended essential oil massage as a health treatment for many conditions.
Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, meaning, they evaporate quickly when exposed to air. Different parts of the plants can be used to obtain essential oils, including the flowers, leaves, seeds, roots, stems, bark, wood, etc. Certain cold-pressed oils, such as the oils from various citrus peels, are also considered to be essential oils but these are not to be confused with cold-pressed fixed or carrier oils such as olive, grapeseed, coconut etc. which are non-volatile oils composed mainly of fatty acid triglycerides.
Essential oils are extremely concentrated. It would take roughly thirty cups of herbal tea to equal the concentration of plant essence in one drop of essential oil. Some essential oils made from rose plants require 4,000 pounds of rose petals to make one pound of essential oil, and are thus very expensive. Essential oils are generally very complex chemically, containing many different substances and compounds. Some experts have theorized that essential oils are the lifeblood of a plant, and contain compounds that the plant uses to fight infections and drive away germs and parasites. Scientific research has isolated hundreds of chemicals in essential oils, and has shown many essential oils to have antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-parasitic properties. Some essential oils contain over 200 identified natural chemical substances. The aromatic extracts from trees, flowers, grasses, herbs, fruits, leaves, roots, and shrubs are obtained by various methods including steam distillation, expression, enfleurage, maceration, and solvent extraction. The nostrils are attached to a part of the brain called the limbic system. The limbic system controls emotions and influences the nervous system and hormones. When you inhale essential oil molecules, the chemical constituents act as messages which are transmitted to the limbic system and affect heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion, and the immune system. Essential oils are also absorbed through the skin.

We have OVER 100 different essential oils and blends right in our office to provide you with the variety you would expect in an aromatherapy setting! Essential oils can be very expensive when purchased through a multi-level networking company, raising prices tremendously to pay everyone in the chain. Sometimes this prevents people from being able to purchase and experience these amazing oils. But they CAN be affordable when you purchase them from a reputable, smaller company that doesn’t invest a lot of money in recruiting sales reps and printing fancy brochures. AromaG's Botanica essential oils come from the unique farms where they are grown, straight to our supplier, and then go through gas chromatography testing to insure they are pure, undiluted essential oils. All essential oils are inspected, bottled, and some are blended by a Clinical Aromatherpatist.

$20 - $25
Aromatic Diffuser Necklaces are a cute, modern, and perfectly economical way to experience the aromatherapy power of our essential oils all day long. As said above, using oils on your skin allows you to experience them internally the most, but aromatically will only last a few hours before fading away. That's why the diffuser necklace is a great option to allow you to experience their effect for days instead of hours! They're so easy to use, and the scent is extra strong with tassels since there is nothing covering the oiled surface! Apply 1-3 drops of pure essential oil directly to the tassel and unleash the many benefits of aromatherapy into your everyday! Feel free to switch up the oils as much as you like if you don't mind them blending. Or save it for your go to daily oil. When the scent starts to fade, just reapply to your liking. The tassels are ultra-absorbent so the oil will not get onto your clothes! And guys, not seeing a tassel you like? No worries! We also have leather diffusers for you as well! Just add a few drops to the back side of the leather pad and enjoy!
