Aromatherapy is the therapeutic application of plant derived essential oils for the support and maintenance of physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Our bodies are persistently invaded and bombarded by environmental toxins (air pollution, germs, perfumes, candles, cleaners) and internal toxins (products we put on our body with chemicals, foods saturated by pesticides and hormones). Additionally, emotional stress takes a detrimental toll on our overall health. Essential oils, along with healthy diet and exercise, offer added support for our bodies and minds through their unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and effect change. Essential oils are mentioned several times throughout scripture as well as ancient medical manuscripts.
As part of a holistic approach to mental health, Laura may suggest the use of essential oils within the counseling setting or as a supplement to counseling. The purpose would be to help support our emotional health as well as our physical bodies, since they impact our emotions.
Clients who would like to experience the effect of these oils in session may do so for an additional $5 fee. Clients who would like to order their own oils for personal use may do so through the link at the bottom of this page.
Research and science continue to discover the therapeutic value and potency of essential oils and how they differ from modern medicine. Laura is not opposed to modern medicine and acknowledges its relevance under certain circumstances, however, she believes in the importance of supporting our bodies as best we can in natural ways. There is much information to be gained in the area of aromatherapy, and Laura is available to be a guide in that process.
Laura Braziel is not a medical doctor nor certified aromatherapist. Essential oils are not used to treat or cure disease, but rather to support the body's natural functions. Always consult a doctor if you have a preexisting condition or take presciption medication. Since not all doctors are trained in essential oils, they may not know all the facts about them, so do your own research first.
