Medical aromatherapy

Although some people may think that aromatherapy only refers to aromatic massage, it really goes far deeper than that. Essential oils, which form the base of aromatherapy, are also used in a pure medicinal way, and here we can look at the work done by French doctors, Lapraz and Duraffourd - where essential oils are used as a medicine.

Essential oils should however never be ingested without such treatment ordered by a licensed medical practitioner who is adequately qualified to prescribe such treatment. For more on the medicinal use of essential oils, please click here.

But to get back to the why of aromatherapy.

Although conventional medicine sometimes scoffs at holistic (or if you want to call it complimentary or alternative medicine) health, many millions of people do believe that they have improved their health by using these methods.

Conclusion essential oil massage

We believe through experience, the anecdotal proof offered by untold people using essential oils, historical use of certain oil and the limited scientific research already undertaken, that essential oils and aromatherapy can be most beneficial to your health.

It must be understood that since essential oils as such can not be patented, that no large corporation is going to invest millions of dollars / pounds into research, as they cannot claim it to be their own invention, and for this reason, clinical research into the benefits of essential oils, and aromatherapy in general is sadly lacking.

We do not advocate that essential oils should replace conventional medicine, yet we do believe that they have a prominent role to play in maintaining general health and mental wellbeing.
