Essential oils are concentrated oils that come from plants, flowers, herbs, trees, roots and other organic living materials, which when inhaled via aromatherapy, or used topically, can heal*, soothe ailments and can assist in a myriad of issues.

Teas are among the most delicious (as far as I’m concerned) and healthy botanicals in the world that can be ingested after steeping the herbs in hot water. Most teas have a myriad of health benefits*, ranging from being high in antioxidants to promoting healthy immune function, as well as aiding in stress relief, sleep consistency, bowel regularity, weight loss, among countless others. So when one wonders how this can be so, one must consider the physical connection we humans have to the rest of the living world. Bluntly, all things are connected, from plants to animals to humans, which is why we can drink the essence of a flower or herb and gain something in return.
When you’re traveling and spending a lot of time in countries far outside your own, health issues can and will arise, and it can take a special approach and understanding to know how to prevent as well as treat them.

Using organic soaps and lotions, and other botanicals will take you a long way to staying happy, healthy and moving, which is why I reached out to Dr. Bronner’s infamous soap company to assist me.

Aromatherapy is an ancient healing practice of using essential oils, which are derived from plants, herbs, flowers, roots and trees. Modern aromatherapy consists of employing a diffuser, which essentially distributes a few drops of your oil of choice through the air by way of sending water vapor into the air. By infusing the air with the essential oils, you are releasing the properties of that substance into the air so that the properties can be inhaled and felt. Essential oils can also be applied to the skin, typically with a carrier oil, and can be used in a variety of botanicals, and other applications. Aromatherapy, however, is all about the aromatic effect.
