Aromatherapy 101

What is Aromatherapy? Aromatherapy is the practice of using 100% pure plant oils, including essential oils, to enhance mental and physical well-being. Inhaling the right scent can reduce stress, increase your energy level, soothe your soul, or help set you off to a peaceful night's sleep. Aromatherapy is at the root of every Purple Essentials natural skin care product we create - balancing your skin, senses and wellbeing ... we Nurture with Nature.

The Benefits of Essential Oils: Derived from the essence of flowers, leaves, bark, fruits, seeds, herbs, spices and roots of plants, essential oils offer a wide range of therapeutic benefits, including these specific properties: antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-infectious, antimicrobial, anti-parasitic, antiviral, and antiseptic. Each essential oil has its own distinct effects on the body and when used individually, or combined in a powerful blend, can be focused to treat, balance and maintain a healthy body and mind.

How to Use Therapeutic Essential Oils There are 3 main ways Purple Essentials utilizes therapeutic essential oils:

1. Skin Care / Topical Application: The pores of your skin - sweat glands - hair follicles - these are all entry points for tiny, essential oil molecules and the amazing benefits they provide. Transferring through your skin, essential oil molecules reach lymph fluid and tiny blood capillaries that circulate them to promote whole-body wellness. Purple facial serums, body cremes, massage oils and body butters, are all excellent means for this source of absorption.

2. Bathing & Cleansing: Whether in the shower, or during a relaxing bath, the essential oils in our natural skin care products, and their aromatic release, help to trigger your olfactory senses. The olfactory system includes all physical organs or cells relating to, or contributing to, the sense of smell. Smell, almost more than any other sense, has the ability to dredge up memories, change moods, ease tensions. When combined with the effect of warm water, the results are often impressive ... breath deep and enjoy. There are a wide variety of Purple bathing and cleansing options, including body wash, bath salts, body scrubs, face wash and, coming soon, shampoo and body wash - natural skin care for your whole cleansing routine.

3. Inhalation / Diffusers: This is the quickest method for experiencing the benefits of essential oils. Molecules released into the air travel directly through the nose, where they interact with the olfactory system and, almost immediately, the brain. Inhaled aromas also move through the respiratory system, affecting multiple systems through the body. Purple Essentials now offers a full selection of essential oils to be used at home or the office ... even in the car!
