Aromatherapy In The Workplace

Posted by Administrator on 6/28/2013 to Aromatherapy
As many of you know, work can create a lot of stress in our lives. This stress can then manifest into physical ailments such as stomach problems, headaches and anxiety. That's why it's important to make your personal work space as comfortable and stress-free as possible. One way to do this is through the use of aromatherapy, which is the use of aroma oils to help bring about feelings of physical and psychological well-being. The theory behind aromatherapy is that the inhalation of aroma oil fragrances stimulates the area of the brain controlling emotions and memory. Chemicals in the brain are then released, helping a person feel more calm, relaxed or energized.

This is so that he can start employing specific techniques to gain conscious control over the related physiological activities, alleviate symptoms and manage his specific health conditions.

An herbal tea is not really a tea (that is, a beverage made from straining tea leaves), but rather a tisane. A tisane is an herbal infusion, usually made by steeping plant parts in boiling water. As they are not made in the same way as traditional teas, they contain no caffeine, but they may contain the medicinal properties of the flowers or herbs from which they are made.
