Aromatherapy means treating with scents. Scents act on the subconscious and balance a disturbed nervous system. An aromatherapy treatment looks at both the body and the psyche. Physical complaints are often related to underlying psychological complaints.
The scent of a flower, tree or 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 peel, moisture jumps out of the peel and stings the 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 on 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 by 3 different methods:
1. Steam distillation for wood, herbs, flowers and spices
2. Cold pressing when peeling citrus fruits
3. Extraction from blossoms and some resins
It often takes 50 to 100 kg of plant material 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 wide variety of aromatherapy oils.
Because 1 liter of essential oil is extracted from so much plant material, this aromatherapy oil has a very strong smell and an essential oil can also be attributed a therapeutic effect. Essential oils are used in aromatherapy for this wonderful scent and therapeutic effect.

Aromatherapy oils have a strong effect on your feelings. 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 one perceives a scent when, for example, you walk in a forest and smell a pine scent and think again about the forest walks with the family.
Essential oil mixes can also be used well in Aromatherapy. This is because these mixes are composed entirely of essential oils to bring out a certain experience or effect.
