Aromatherapy means treating with scents. Scents act on the subconscious and balance a disturbed nervous system. Aromatherapy treatment looks at both the body and the psyche. Physical complaints often have to do with underlying psychological complaints.
The scent of a flower, a tree or an herb is caused by the essential oil. Essential oils are extracted from various plants, herbs, trees and flowers. A recognizable example of essential oil is the peel of a lemon. When you squeeze the skin, moisture will pop out of the skin and it will poke your eyes. That is the essential oil of the lemon.
Beauty & Care essential oils are 100% pure, natural, undiluted or blended. The essential oil is so cheap in the webshop because we are an essential oil wholesaler. This essential oil is suitable for aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy oils are divided into 6 groups:
Aromatherapy oil is extracted through 3 different methods:
1. Steam distillation with wood, herbs, flowers and spices
2. Cold pressing when peeling citrus fruits
3. Extraction with blossoms and some resins
Often 50 to 100 kg of plant material is needed to obtain 1 liter of essential oil, depending on the type of aromatherapy oil. Sometimes only 25 kg is needed and sometimes much more plant material is needed to obtain 1 liter. That is why there is also a large price difference in the large variety of aromatherapy oils.
Because 1 liter of essential oil is extracted from so much plant material, this aromatherapy oil has a very strong odor and an therapeutic effect can also be attributed to an essential oil. Essential oils are used in aromatherapy for this wonderful scent and therapeutic effect.

Aromatherapy oils have a strong effect on your feeling. It is known that 2 neural pathways run directly from the sense of smell to the limbic system in the brain (this part of the brain is involved in memory and emotions). An example from everyday life is that people perceive an odor when, for example, you walk in a forest and smell a pine scent and you have to think again about the walks with the family.
Essential oil mixes can also be used well in aromatherapy. This is because these mixes are entirely composed of essential oils to highlight a certain experience or effect.
