Aromatherapy Explained

Research shows the positive effects that aroma has on our very existence. Olfactory receptors stimulate the limbic system in our brain which can affect emotions, behaviour, memories, sleep, health disorders, pain and even the enjoyment of food. It is an exciting time as essential oils are being integrated into health and wellness programs and are recognized as a complementary form of health care. We are thrilled to share this journey with you.

"I graduated from Joyessence in June 2011. I am so grateful for the course and the support that I received. I was referring to my text book from today as I prepared notes for a yoga studio Wellness afternoon where I am presenting this weekend. The topic is Concussion. I have a growing number of clients who come for Aroma Massage. I enjoy the energy of giving the treatment and I thrive on the creativity of deciding what wonderful e/o to use for the client's specific needs. I have started presenting classes for people to learn how to create their own blends and products. This is a lot of fun too!" http://riverbendessentialoil.com/
