Aromatherapy oils are pure, natural, essential oils derived from petals, seeds, leaves, fruits, roots and barks.
With their therapeutic and healing properties they bring harmony within us and promote healing both at physical and mental levels.
If they are used in bath or for massage they are known to rejuvenate the individual by inducing deep relaxation and removing negative emotions.
