Clinical Oil Therapy

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.

Aromatherapy is gaining momentum and is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.

There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with its own healing properties.

Here are 3 areas that you may find relief through Essential oils and oil therapy

Reduces stress

Using lavender scents has been shown to reduce stress.

In one particular study, participants who were using aromatherapy felt less pain and had reduced stress levels during a stressful situation, compared to participants who were not using aromatherapy.

Other studies showed reduced stress levels in cancer patients who had undergone aromatherapy treatment.

Improve mood

Citrus and vibrant aromas have uplifting tendencies that tend to reduce the effects of depression.


One of the best benefits of aromatherapy is that it can relieve pain. Clary sage is a great natural scent often used for the reduction of pain, and is most commonly known for its success for relieving menstrual pains.
