Aromatherapy, also referred to as Essential Oil (EO) therapy, is the use of naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants to promote the health of body, mind and spirit.
Aromatherapy is a natural, non-invasive approach to support the body’s natural ability to balance and heal itself with the use of essential oils.
Pure EO’s contain only the concentrated aromatic compounds from the plant without any adulteration.
Some companies use additives to lower production costs, which can reduce the effectiveness of the oil and can be harmful to the body. When purchasing essential oils consumers should also consider the soil, quality of seeds, growing and harvesting conditions, and bottling/storage process. SLN suggests using unadulterated, organic oils.
Here are a few companies that sell high quality EO’s. SLN’s favorite EO company is Native American Nutritional’s- Rocky Mountain Essential Oils.
