Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of single essential oils and synergies (blends of 2 or more essential oils), by a trained aromatherapist. At New Yew, I use the oils in one of two ways:
1) Via inhalation such as diffusion, cotton ball or tissue, or worn on/in a special type of pendant. The aroma of some essential oils can enhance mood and emotion, or balance other aspects of the mind and/or spirit.
2) Through skillful application to the body. Using essential oils on the body is a great way to enhance pain relief, and reduce the sensation of muscle tension.
