The Positive Vibes of Using Authentic Aromatherapy – The Blue Bungalow Spa Tells All.
Who has not popped into the local Drugstore to pick up our favorite scented oil in a jar? But, how many of you are aware that scented jar may not necessarily be what is considered an “Authentic” Aromatherapy, otherwise known as an essential oil?
If you are simply looking for something that smells nice, then that little jar can be most acceptable. However, if you’re in search of an aromatherapy that can give you some healing properties, reach for the truly authentic oils.
What is True Aromatherapy Oil? Known as an Essential oil, true aromatherapy oil is derived from the extracts of various plants. The oil can be extracted from roots, seeds, leaves or the blossoms found on the plant. Lavender and Rose are some good examples.
