What is scan therapy

Aroma therapy

Aromatherapy is usually practiced by naturopaths or doctors. Midwives, masseurs and psychotherapists also work with fragrances. Of course, some essential oils also belong in the medicine cabinet. For example, lavender oil can help with burns, and thyme oil is often used for colds. Fragrant oils such as orange oil, rose oil or lemon oil are also good for wellness treatments in your own home.

A well-known use of essential oils is evaporation in the fragrance lamp. For this purpose, the essential oil is dripped into water and heated with a tea light. Fragrance lamps are particularly suitable to arouse emotions and increase well-being. This form of application, like inhalation, can also be useful for respiratory diseases. The oils reach the bloodstream via the bronchi and lungs and thus also reach the target organs.

Essential oils can also be used for local treatment, for example in the form of compresses or during a massage. For this purpose, however, the oils should be mixed with another fatty oil such as jojoba or almond oil. Another possibility of application are baths. Here, too, prior emulsification is necessary, as water and essential oil do not mix.

Oral ingestion can be useful for various diseases. Just like rub-in on acupuncture or reflex points, this form of application belongs in the hands of a therapist. The effect of the fragrant vegetable oils should not be underestimated: the concentration of one drop of oil corresponds to the amount of up to 40 cups of tea from the corresponding plant.
