Aromatherapy and Your Health

Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being.  It is sometimes used in combination with massage and other therapeutic techniques as part of a holistic treatment approach. 
 

It is well known that aromatic oils were used in China and India during the same period as ancient Egypt. Jasmine was used as a general tonic for the entire body. Rose was employed as an antidepressant and used to strengthen the liver. Chamomile was given for headaches, dizziness and colds. Many of the properties ascribed to herbs and aromatic oils by the ancients are regarded as valid today.  

Thursday, March 6, Molly Bridges will be teaching Essential Oils, Aromatherapy and Your Health. Molly will show us how essential oils can provide a more natural and effective way to care for you and your family.  We will meet in the Large Auditorium at 6:30 to discuss how essential oils can be used for pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.
