Scent of a Therapy - An Eastern Viewpoint

Aromatherapy uses healing essential oils, nature’s versatile fragrances painstakingly extracted from plants, to bring deep and far-reaching changes in our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is poised to be a key complementary therapy of the 21st century.

Sleepless nights, six weeks of a hacking cough, the mandatory course of antibiotics, changing bottle of fat, sweet globules of homeopathic medicine, experimenting with what seemed like everybody's grandmother's remedies - I went through it all.

Did You Know?

You can make your own essential oil based hair conditioner with the following recipe:

  • 1 Tbsp Lanolin
  • 1 Tbsp Glycerine
  • 1 Tbsp Almond Oil
  • 3 drops of Rosemary (dark hair) OR Chamomile (light)
  • 1 egg

Combine the first four ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Warm the mixture slightly. Beat in the egg. (Remember only warm the mixture slightly or you will end up with scrambled eggs on your head!) Once the egg is well mixed with the other ingredients, massage the mixture into the hair and scalp. Place either a bath cap or a towel over your hair and allow the conditioner to penetrate for about 10 minutes. Finally, rinse your hair thoroughly, and the beautiful lustre will be revealed!
