The value of essential oils in restoring balance.
Natural health care has always been very important but now more than ever people are looking for ways to care for themselves and their family using products that come from nature and help balance and correct the body using it’s innate healing ability.
We tend to think of stress as a state in which one can be agitated, angry, anxious, tense or fearful hence the value of essential oils in being able to restore one’s balance.
Adaptogens are natural substances found in some plants and herbs that shield the body against the impact of stress – by balancing and harmonizing the body systems. They provide benefits which are impossible to get in any other way. They are completely unique in nature.
Essential oils are amazing the way that they work as they contain constituents that are both calming and stimulating. In fact researchers have found that, depending on the state of the individual, essential oils can be either stimulating or calming. They seem to “know” what is required of them. So an anxious person will find they receive a calming effect from a particular oil, while another person who is feeling listless may find a restorative effect from the same oil. In aromatherapy, we refer to these oils as “adaptogens” because the type of effect they induce will depend on what an individual needs to restore their balance.
