You start you aromatherapy session by having a discussion on your medical history and any personal issues that may be affecting you. It is highly important that you are thorough and specific in disclosing the medical history, which includes illnesses, injuries, and allergies. Remember that aromatherapists cannot make a medical diagnosis because they aren’t trained to do so. But they can give you advice on a course of aromatherapy treatment.
Your aromatherapist will usually select and blend different essential oils, dilute them in a carrier oil, then massage them into your skin. A carrier oil is usually an oil extracted from nuts and seeds. They may also prepare products for you to use at home, such as oils to put in a diffuser or a cream.
An aromatherapy session should last for around an hour to an hour and a half. You might find that one session is enough or you may want to continue with regular treatments.
Сoming away from an aromatherapy session, you can expect to feel more relaxed than you were before the session. The essential oils used in the session do have the “magical” ability to soothe weary muscles, minds and spirits. Aromatherapy is a gentle, non-invasive form of holistic therapy you will most likely thoroughly enjoy.
