Metaphysical Aromatherapy

Metaphysical Aromatherapy
When we think of aromatherapy, we often see it as a smell good approach to relaxing. It's so much more.

Here are excerpts from the article written by Kylie Thompson: Metaphysical Aromatherapy

There’s more to aromatherapy than meets the eye, or nose. In this article we explore the metaphysical aspects of aromatherapy that can be simply applied in our everyday lives.

Aromatherapy is now a well known Wholistic therapy that many people turn to to assist with their physical and emotional health and wellbeing. But there is another, little known side to aromatherapy-the spiritual, magickal and mystical side. Our ancestors were well aware of these aspects, and many religions and cultures were shaped by the early knowledge the ancients had in regards to aromatic and medicinal plants. Now we all have the freedom to re-access this once forbidden information and apply it in our lives without fear of being burned at the stake as a witch!

Here is a selection of some well known essential oils and a whole new way of using them.
