At Source Vitál Apothecary, we look to nature as the inspiration for our skincare, body care, and aromatherapy solutions. We begin with three main elements: marine algae, 100% pure essential oils, and whole plant botanicals. While seaweed is the heart of our holistic philosophy, essential oils are the soul.
Although we celebrate the beauty of aromatherapy every day, Aromatherapy Awareness Week gives us a chance to put an extra special spotlight on the essential oils we love so much. The International Federation of Aromatherapists (IFA) registered Aromatherapy Awareness Week from June 6th to 12th and aimed to bring more recognition to the benefits of Aromatherapy and its role in the health and well-being of the nation.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy, or essential oil therapy, is the art and science of using essential oils for therapeutic uses. For hundreds and even thousands of years, essential oils have been used in traditional remedies, and religious ceremonies and enjoyed for their aromas. Aromatherapy, through the use of essential oils, is where we can truly connect the body with the mind and spirit. This is the primary pursuit of any holistic wellness program.
