WHY AROMATHERAPY? HEAR FROM AMY GALPER HER PERSPECTIVE ON THIS ANCIENT PRACTICE OF ART MEETS SCIENCE
Like any science, aromatherapy is mysterious and often misunderstood. Yes, nice aromas have a way of making us feel, but aromatherapy goes beyond fragrance, to a scientific discipline as authentic as any herbal medicine. Based on the molecular properties and behavior of essential oils, it supports our innate ability to heal ourselves—making it a powerful ally in treating mind, body and emotions.
It has been practiced for 4,000 years, since ancient Greeks first saw plants as a living pharmacopeia, used to advance healing and transformation. And today, it’s more supported and relevant than ever: It’s one of the fastest growing healing disciplines. It’s being used to treat stress-related disorders and complement other care. And a growing number of studies are giving it a spotlight in the research community. Practicing aromatherapy is a not only joyful and enlightening, it’s serious science.
The beauty of aromatherapy goes beyond its ability to heal or comfort; it’s that when you unlock the full potential of plants, you unlock your own. In discovering aromatherapy’s incredible healing properties, you also discover your power to inspire, to create joy, and to connect deeply not only with essential oils, but with yourself, your clients and a global community of global artisans.
It’s the kind of connection you rarely find in conventional medicine today: personal, positive and engaging on every level, not just the physical. And it’s a genuine art form, where intuition and curiosity are as important as plant intelligence, and finding the right mix means experimenting with a lot of beautiful mediums. Like any artist, you’ll want to keep developing and sharing it forever.
