Aromatherapy & Immunity
Aromatherapy offers potent medicine to address our holistic wellbeing. Essential oils are the most volatile, biochemically active representation of the plant kingdom and are products of plant metabolism. Composed of chemical constituents, essential oils mediate between the plant and its environment attracting, repelling and communicating to achieve homeostasis. Each essential oil may have well over 100 constituents, yet only one to several impart the odor and taste.
Whether we are looking to strengthen our immunity or address acute bacterial or viral infections, essential oils offer a range of interventions that can assist us in restoring vitality from the physical, emotional and spiritual continuum of our lives. Also known as the “quintessence” of the plant, essential oils are alchemical harbingers of higher vibrational energies that assist us to awaken and accelerate our path of personal transformation and spiritual evolution.

Choosing to be responsible for our own health requires us to listen to the best guide we have on hand – ourselves. This responsibility asks us to listen to our own body, becoming accustomed to its signals and needs. Diet and nutrition are critical components to this process as are the needs for emotional balance and support. We must make the time for the relationships and experiences that nourish and support our optimum selves.
Spiritual, Therapeutic and Aesthetic Benefits of Aromatherapy
True aromatherapy is the art and science of using pure extracts from aromatic plant materials, termed essential oils, to tend to specific health and wellness needs while utilizing a holistic framework. Through education and practice we can explore scent combinations that can help to naturally induce a state of balance in our lives and reconnect us with various aspects of our human experience. The focus areas for which we use aromatherapy to foster a healthy lifestyle are our physiology, our psychology (including our emotions), and of course our spirituality.
Aromatics have been prized for centuries for their therapeutic, spiritual, and aesthetic benefits. One popular Ancient Egyptian blend called Kyphi, was formulated with over 15 different aromatics, including frankincense, juniper, and cardamom. This blend was used medicinally, ceremonially, and as perfume. The Greek philosopher Plutarch had the following to say about Kyphi: “Its aromatic substances lull to sleep, allay anxieties, and brighten dreams. It is made of things that delight most in the night.” During the time of the Bubonic Plague, also known as the Black Death in the mid 1300’s, oils of clove and cinnamon among others high in specific chemical constituents, like Limonene and Eugenol, were highly valued and protected as a safeguard for human life.
For those of you that love the option of creating your own formulas, I passionately advocate the use of pure essential oils, specifically organic and bio-dynamic when possible, from trustworthy and knowledgeable sources, creating a demand for efficacious and superior quality essential oils. When purchasing, look for the common and Latin name, the part of the plant and the method of distillation, as well as the country of origin. Sometimes too little information can be dangerous. If you are interested in working with essential oils, please consider many of the educational prospects available and at minimum READ, READ, and READ.
