"Smell is a potent wizard that transports us thousands of miles and all the years we have lived. Odors, instantaneous and fleeting cause my heart to dilate joyously or contract with remembered grief."
wrote Helen Keller in The World I Live In (1908).
Aromatherapy is yet another way to utilize the amazing gifts of plants! Essential oils give plants their scent but they are "essential" to the plant to stimulate growth and reproduction, attract or discourage particular insects, and protect from diseases.
We use them to enhance our well-being.
When inhaled or applied to the skin, the aromatic molecules enter the bloodstream and circulate through the body.
At Nurturing Remedies, we use pure, unadulterated (which is an increasing problem in the industry) essential oils. Additionally, essential oils are used in respect of the plant. It takes 1 ton or 60,00 roses to make 1 ounce of rose essential oil! Essential oils not only offer a medley of beautiful scents but provide profound healing abilities.
