Aromatherapy is the practice of using pure essential oils extracted from plants as remedies for emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. The healing properties of essential oils can relieve headaches, muscular pain, and cold and flu symptoms. A few drops in your skincare regime can increase hydration, treat acne and regenerate damaged skin. What's more, essential oils can shift your mood, improve your sleep patterns and lower feelings of anxiety to make you feel restored, relaxed and renewed.
A Scented Life is a journey into the senses, bringing this ancient practice into today's world. Aromatherapy expert Pat Princi-Jones details what different essential oils can do for you and demonstrates the many ways to mix and apply oils in your daily life for maximum long-term benefits.
