Essential oils are plant extracts that can restore balance to your body, primarily through the sense of smell. The scents trigger the area in the brain affecting mood, emotions, memory and learning.
The essential oils we use at Woodwinds come from organically grown plants and are specially blended by a Certified Aromatherapist.
You can use essential oils for a variety of purposes, including:
- Reducing nausea
- Promoting comfort
- Supporting your healing process after surgery
There are several ways to use essential oils, depending on their purpose:
- Breathing them in
- Adding them to your bath
- Applying them to your skin through massage oils
Essential oils may not be appropriate for some patients. If you are interested in using them in your healing process, your nurse will provide guidance in the appropriate use.
