That colors are able to activate our vital center has been known for millennia: we can find its application in Indian, Chinese, Tibetan and Egyptian medicine.

Aromatherapy is a therapeutic method that brings well-being through the aromatic essences, which help healing on a physical, mental and spiritual level. In fact, essential oils can be easily perceived by our olfactory system because they are volatile and odorous substances. Inhalating these essences can stimulate our brain to release chemicals that counteract stress and other internal conflicts. In addition to the healing qualities for the body, Aromatherapy also has the power to influence the psychological sphere because of the connection between our olfactory system, our emotional part and memory. All this happens because the odors coming from the essential oils directly affect the nerve centers of the brain excluding the involvement of rational thought: so they touch your spiritual aspects through the care of the psyche, to influence the unconscious. It also helps in meditation and visualization techniques.

The term “aromatherapy” was defined in 1920, but its origins are much older, when our ancestors discovered that certain aromatic plants, if burned, were able to alter the state of consciousness.
