I like to make my own skin care and cleaning products because I don't want to use harmful chemicals. I highly recommend to have your own Spa parties at home. Get some friends together and make your own products while you are having fun with your friends.


So, what exactly is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the inhalation and bodily application of essential oils from aromatic plants to relax, balance, rejuvenate, restore or enhance body, mind and spirit. Pure essential oils are extracted from many parts of the plant including the flower, leaf, resin, bark, root, twig, seed, berry, rind and rhizome.
Aromatherapy is a way to improve the quality of everyday living on many levels(physical,emotional and spiritual). It is already part of our everyday living, everyone has had emotional responses to certain scents, both pleasant and unpleasant. The idea behind aromatherapy is, first, to find the special scents, unique for each individual, that provide positive sensory feelings and emotions. Then to introduce those scents into our everyday living to enhance our well-being.

Aromatherapy is a natural way to feel better, both on the inside and outside using pure, safe essential oils extracted from naturally aromatic living plants.
Aromatic medicine was recorded both in Egypt and India more than six thousand years ago . Massage oil, healing preparations, embalming, skin care, fragrant perfumes, and cosmetology are some of the uses originated from the Egyptians.
The use of plant and herbal extracts for medical healing has been documented by most native cultures throughout history.
