It is believed that the roots of aromatherapy stems back some 4000 years, where aromatherapy it specifically originated from is unknown. The evidence suggests that around the same time, both the ancient Egyptians and Chinese when their king use off aromatherapy. However, it is the ancient Egyptians who are accredited with utilizing the powerful hearing potential of aromatics. In the first instance, during the Middle Ages and at the end of the Christian wars, the spread of aromatherapy occurred. It was as Christian knights returned from the Middle East. They brought with them knowledge of aromatics and also essential oils into the European areas. It was since 16 49 that the great plague spread across Europe and into Britain. The physicians, under provoke arrays of that time war masks filled with herbs and spices in orderto board off and protect themselves from the disease. It has been said that people would carry a Posey op Amanda off herbs in attempts to prevent contamination off the plague. It is also said that the lavender fields surrounding French Villagers were believed to have warded off the play. I'm so provided protection for the inhabitants off the village. In 1937 French chemist Rene Morris got Marseille, had slip it severe burns and is said to have plunged his arm into a containment of lavender essential oil on this led to his curiosity around the hailing power of aromatic essential oils. On it is from this experience. He created the term around the therapy there, then followed the use of essential oils by French surgeon Jon Bonet during the Second World War toe aid the hailing of soldiers wounds which supported the evidence of medical benefits of aromatherapy. Dr. Bell now retired from the army and continued his work in aromatherapy on provided a science foundation to essential oils in modern times. And currently that is an increasing usage off aromatic essential oils in both private clinics spars. And here in the UK, aromatherapy has become more prevalent in healthcare settings. So this comes to the end off this very brief overview off a history of aromatics. There is so much more to learn around this subject andan level to aromatherapy cause we pick up on this history again on we go into it in a little bit more detail. This now concludes this part off your learning 4. 3 What is aromatherapy: What is a run the therapy, aromatherapy as the application of essential oils to facilitate health and well-being. So let's have a look at the term rubber therapy and how this was first coined. And we're looking at Rene, more risk for say, the term aromatherapy as it is known today, was first coined in 1937 by the French chemist and perfume or run a moral Skype for say. It was in 1910 when gas bar say, burnt his hand very badly whilst working in his laboratory and accidentally immersed his hand. That was badly burned into pure and diluted lavender essential oil, which he was surprised to find not only individually East the pain of the burn, but to heal their hand without any sign of infection or scarring. He later went on to discover that minute amount of essential oils are absorbed by the body and interact with the body's chemistry. 5. 4 What are essential oils and patch test: What essential oils, essential oils are the volatile, fragrant liquid, extract it from a single botanical source. They are complex chemical mixtures that form the lifeblood of the plant. Their functions include helping to heal the plant, protecting it against disease, as well as attracting pollinators and repelling pests. Safety warning. Essential oils are extremely concentrated, so it is important to use them correctly. Here are some handy tips on how to use that safely and effectively. Patch test. Always conduct a patch test when looking to introduce a new oil. To perform a patch test, simply mix a teaspoon of carrier oil with four drops of essential oil. You're seeing the inside of the forearm, apply a couple of drops of the blend to the pad or a plaster and fix it to the inside of the forum. If you experience any irritation or discomfort, immediately remove the plaster, wash the area with cold water. Now we need to be mindful. It could be the plaster that you have an irritation to. So it might be wise to try out the plaster on the forearm first. And if there's no irritation, then put the oil onto that plaster, put it on the arm, and then compare the difference. If there's no irritation after 24 hours, then this oil is safe for you to use in its diluted form. Children. We must never use essential oils on children and a two-year-old unless advised by a professional, aroma therapist. Pregnancy and medications.

Essential oils are connected in a variety of ways. In this recording, we look narrowly essential oil and how it is produced. We begin with a short essential oil profile. Although by the process of harvesting flowers from the bitter orange tree and following through to the distillation process. Essential oil profile, narrowly, essential oil is purchased in Mediterranean and African areas. It requires approximately a turn of Orange Blossom flowers to produce one liter of narrowly essential oil. The Latin name for narrowly essential oil is citrus or run to you. And it is a pale yellow Mobil Oil, which generally dark ends and becomes more viscous with age. It has a powerful, light and refreshing floral top note with very little persistence due to it being a top note. Now Rowley is one of the key essential oils in the classic odor Cologne, along with lavender, bergamot, lemon, and Rose Marie coils harvesting. The essential oil is collected by handpicking the flowers of the bitter orange tray. Firstly, large mats are placed on the ground and, and around the trays so that the pickers camp pick and drop the flowers onto the mats. They then shake and drop the orange blossom flowers into crates, which are then transferred into the distillation area, where the distillation process occurs. Once in this area, there is a process of saute. This selection of the blossom separates the flowers from the leaves and twigs and allows for only the finest blossoms to be used in distillation. Distillation. Once the flowers are all separated and the blossoms collected, they all moved into the distillation area. The distillation process of the blossom is a highly specialized process. This is due to the nature of the blossom being delicate. The flowers, the distilled and move. This allows to keep the temperature lower inside the distillation vessel, bought his hated and the flower blossoms out then added. The distillation process takes around for hours to complete. The process is deemed completed when no more drops of oil or fat on the surface of the water. And out of the content section, bursa. Storage. Buckling usually occurs quickly after distillation. The essential oil is collected and stored in sterile dark glass containers, which protect the oil from light and reduce oxidation. The bottles are labeled and stored in a dark and cold environment. 7. 6 Safety and Identifying essential oils: essential oils on their names. Every bottle of essential oil must be labeled on. The labeling should demonstrate both the English and Latin name off the essential oil. This informs us of which plant on family type it waas derived. The lemonade is extremely important as it identifies the exact type of essential oil contained within a bottle. The London name is the same as the botanical name Off the plant on it is the most exact method off identify a particular plant. This is because the Ludden is known as the universal language of plants. On example is the love into plant off, which there are many species on the different species off a different aroma on different therapeutic qualities. There is lot of Angela Gusta failure. I love Angela storages. Love on Gela Don't take Tae la avuncular, Lucky Folio Love Angela Multi City on the Latin name is all those italicized the learn name and shoes that the contents off the bottle off. What it say's on the label. This serves a few purpose. The primary purpose is that each love Indus chemical construction is different, and so office different therapeutic properties on issues around safety in the profile sheets that are shared below. You will see the English and Latin names for the essential oils. Then, after reading through the profiles, you will be able to create your own profile shapes for the essential names named in the demonstration videos. And just to help you out with that right at the end off the course, there is additional information to help you. Let's look are essential oils. Aren't that perfume essential oils on their perfumes, providers with a wonderful way of enjoying our sense of smell? There are three primary notes assigned to essential oils. These are top middle on base H note office, a distinct psychological and physiological experience. The top note is Theo Essential oil to be sensed in a blend firstly and is quick to evaporate. This note is most often fresh, bright, light, direct on a sense of wariness. This mode lifts the perfume off a blend. Essential oils in this group are orange and a lemon and other Citrus essential files into this category. Two. As you dio further reading and research, what other essential oils come into the category off top note, Then middle notes are soft, providing a soothing sense to blend. They are rounded and harmonizing on. They balance the PLO feud between the top on basement off the blend on, often referred to as hot scented oils. Essential lawyers in this probe are Roman, camomile and lavender. What other essential oils come into this group is something that you can ask yourself as you're reading and researching on. Make some nuts about that. The basement are warm grounding. They help us to be consented and rooted on deep andare known as a fix it on active ridges. The evaporation off the top Moz essential oils in the basement category are suitable long alive on murder. As you do your research, what other essential oils come into this crew? The small concludes this part off your learning. 8. 7 Safe storage of essential oils: health safety on storage of essential oils. Essential oils are highly volatile of flammable liquids. For this reason, it is important to ensure its safe storage as well as use storage and dark glass bottles with stop it tops is essential. And if you can obtain a bottle of essential oil with a child safety top on, even better keep your essential oils in cool, dark places in a upright position and make sure to keep them out of sight and reach off Children, preferably in a lot covered. Do not store essential oils in plastic containers, as this will need to perishing off the oil on the container. Stored correctly. A son stored correctly Essential oils were last about a year. Citrus oils won't last as long when you will. Mixing and blending essential oils do so in a glass or ceramic container. Take her not to splash essential oil into the eyes. And if you do rinse with water, however, I have bad that milk has been better at removing or using the issue on Always seek medical advice. If you have any spillages off essential oils, wiped them both straight away with a tissue or applaud. I'm dispose off the tissue and have been outside or your cloth into the laundry. When smell testing oils, do not sniff directly from the bottle, but from the lead or a drop on a test strip. Now with the bottle, you can hold it under your nose, but some distance from your nose, because the aromas will lived on your bearable to inhale them on. When mixed, say essential oils, make sure that you have plenty of fresh air on good lighting. Because essential oils are concentrated, it is important to blend or mixed essential oil with a career off base. Oil bass players are often a vegetable oil. Their style. It's the essential oils to make it safer to use the essential oils, please remember to check safety data the age essential oil as there are medical conditions that can't be affected by the essential oil on if indict, seek the advice from a qualified aroma. Therapist on Medical Practitioner There are many ways to use essential oils, but in massage they are blended into carrier oils, which are also based. Screams, butters, jazz and search armed thes are all botanical based products. All thes make really good based products of blending essential oils into which dilutes them to safe dosage levels. Essential oils are measured in drops so into want a spoon of carrier oil, which is equal to five mills. We can place 2 to 3 drops of essential oil. Dilution is crucial, turned Scheuer Saviours on application to the skin or if we're inhaling through diffusion. And I labor that pipe because safety is so important. But the safety aspect are the consultation process, which aroma therapist employ to obtain information from the recipient of aromatherapy to make sure that the essential oils chosen on the method of application will be safe for them . Reading individual safety oils Safety data seeking medical approval on the advice of a qualified aroma therapist are all suspects over being able to use aromatherapy safely. So let's move on to, say, abuse off essential oils for babies, infants and Children 9. 8 Safe use of essential oils: safe use of essential oils, babies, infants and Children using essential oils safely is not only important for adults, but especially so for babies, infants and Children. As I shared with you earlier, I have enjoyed using essential oils with my son for his Xmas when he was younger on both his brother. And I benefited, too. On the course, my niece settled soundly with a gentle with of frankincense on. My granddaughter has enjoyed an occasional whiff of rose or lavender sweet orange on DSO. Kids do benefit from these natural substances. Once we grasp the basics off aromatherapy, we build confidence in the oils on. We become more comfortable with their use while remaining might vote of taking her to ensure the oils are safely stored away. Where a reaction, irritation or sensitivity is noted, We simply do not use the essential oil again on apply some basic first aid. This is where the patch test is so important and helps to limit the potential for harm. The patch test is simply diluting a drop of essential oil into a career oil on double a little onto the skin boat with Children. We do not use topical application off essential oils but inhalation through diffusion, the essential oils are concentrated on. This means they require dilution on correct dilution and shoes. Safety for the recipient Off Aromatherapy The most notable resource book in the field off aromatherapy is essential. Oil Safety, which has been written by Robert Tis Around on Rodney Yo. There are thousands of citations in the boot on the construction of the book. Took over a decade off production on Just a Little Bit About Robert Tis around Hey is viewed as an authority in the world off aromatherapy. He has undertaken decades off training, education and research on so he has a a wealth of knowledge on so his book, Essential Oil Safety, has been toted. The most relevant resource spoke for around therapists. So what does Robert Tis Arone say about safety? Hey indicates the following guidelines. My Children are concerned in relation to safety on essential oils. Keep essential oils in a place by young Children, cannot reach them and never let them handle essential oils. Bottles even to euro kids have been known to unscrew oh caps on essential oil bottles on drink the contents. The fact that the bottle contains of orifice. Reducer helps a little, but your Children are used to sucking liquids. This usually results in a visit to the emergency room, while the end result is rally big toe every year, there are some very close calls to help prevent such accidents. All essential oils should be sold in bottles with child proof caps. Of course, this doesn't always wear, but it does make a difference. Okay, so Robert tis Ron points out there that there are a lot of incidences and some a near fatal , so we must be really, really careful whether kids aunt to keep those essential IRS locked in a dark cupboard out off the way. Never allow Children of any age to ingest essential oils. The safest method to use for kids is vaporization through the diffuser. On this come include a dilution of essential oils being placed onto a tissue and placed in the kids room for babies. It's possible to put one drop of essential oil diluted onto the parent shoulder on the baby can be held close to the area where the essential oil has been placed on. This will gently soothe the baby. It is advised not to use peppermint essential oil on or around Children under three on eucalyptus company used in diffusion of 1% where a child is under three. A little earlier, I mentioned about my nace under with a front consents. It was one day I had a visit from my sister in law. She brought my knee, says on the younger of the two, was very upset and hadn't settled for a few days. EMI is autistic, and this was part of her condition. On that day, I had been using frankincense essential oil without thinking, I said to my sister in law, I would hold her wife. She organized herself as I held Emmy. She begun to quite done and then soon fell asleep. She slept soundly. A. So there had never been anything bothering her. I love from consents for this serving sense, I believe, and I have no evidence to support this. That Frank had Sense has an ability with the person who experiences autism. Keeping things simple by using single essential oils on lowest dosage is the best approach on maintain safety. While the child gains the benefits of aromatics, the most appropriate dilution rates for babies, infants and Children are up to three months, not Pope. One to no 0.2% 3 to 24 months, not 240.252 point 5%. 2 to 6 year old want to 2% 6 years to 15 year old, 1.5 to 3% at the 15 year old upwards 2.5 to 5% delusions. My favorite essential oils for kids are frankincense, lavender, sweet orange, come a mile, lemon balm, mantra. Narrow Lee and Rose on. My little granddaughter Loves Rose because that's her middle name. 10. 9 Dilutions of essential oils: Blending oils safely. Essential oils contain active ingredients which come from the plant, and these are highly concentrated and diluted. And so it's vitally important that we dilute the essential oils before using them on this skin. It is vitally important to use the correct dilutions of essential oils to avoid irritation, possible burning of the skin, and potential toxicity. The table that I shared with you shows you the correct concentrations are the essential oils for application of the blended oil to different parts of the body. So in the first column, we say the base oil low shared bathroom shower gel that we can dilute the essential oils into. And we have different amount. So we've got ten males, 20 murders, 25 males, 13 males, and 50 mils. Now, a teaspoon is about five miles. So we can have the ten mill and we can increase the 20 males up to 25, to 30, up to 35, up to 40, and adapt the amount of essential oil accordingly. Now, in the next columns, what we have is the maximum number of drops of essential oils that we apply to the face or delicate skin. What we apply to normal skin and the body and to local application around the body. And so we have a dilution of 1% for the face and delicate skin. And that would be about two drops of essential oils into ten mils of carrier oil. Or if I use saying 20 mils of carrier oil, this would be about four drops of oil. And then if there's 25 miles of carrier, while this would be five drops of essential oil and 30 mils, we would apply six drops into the carrier oil. And for 50 miles, we would then add ten drops of the essential. Now for normal scan and the body, we would look to apply a 2.5% dilution. And again, in ten mils of carrier oil or lotion, whatever product we're adding it to, we would use five drops in went emails. We could add ten drops in 25 males, we'd add 12 drops, and in 30 miles would add 15 drops and in 50 mils 25 drops. And then if I creating a local application or for the body, we would have a 5% dilution. And so in ten mills we can add ten drops. And in 20 miles, 20 drops. And in 25 miles we've got 25 drops. And in 13 wells we have 30 drops and 50 mils. We have 50 drops. 11. 10 essential oils to avoid: essential oils to avoid my name's Deborah Casey. Fully qualified Aromatherapy first breaking master teacher on course instructor. We begin this segment with taking a look at the following statement. Safety involves a state of being free from risk or occurrence off injury, harm or danger. Individuals who practice aromatherapy need to be aware of the safety issues involved with using essential oils in order to avoid potential adverse effects. According to Burn Field. Although many essential oils are potentially hazardous materials if handled in the appropriate manner, the risks involved in their use can be very small. So therefore, most commercially offered essential oils are safe to use for the purpose intended in a domestic professional ah clinical environment. The informed use off essential oils may create occasional irritation or minor discomfort, but it is extremely unlikely to create serious injury or lusting physical problems, particularly where basic guidelines are followed. Here we stay on this slide various essential oils that need to be avoided and they need to be avoided because there are certain potent compounds that can be lethal at high doses. On this is information about on the National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy. So if you're a clinical room, a therapist and you've undertaken advanced practical studies on Do you have a good knowledge base? Then you will know how to use these essential oils safely. I encourage students to take time to research these essential oils on. Write some notes in your journal to make sure that you cover the health and safety element off your learning feedback. To me, it's interesting to share what you find. Aunt. I look forward to reading and getting in bold in a dialogue with you off that subject. Moving on, we go to reiterate recap their health and safety aspect off essential oils essentially on the slide. There's various elements that you need to read. However, what I'd like to pick out is that we store essential oils in a cool dark cupboard upper height, preferably a locked cupboard so they are out of the reach of Children and pets. We are also very careful about the prolonged use off essential oils. We are very careful about using essential oils where there's pregnancy and epilepsy weathers cancer. We are also very careful about using essential oils, ensuring that they don't get into our eyes on very careful about keeping essential oils away from direct flames on candles. Much is bias, etcetera because they are highly flammable, hence why they need to be stored in a cool, dark place. Do not use essential oils internally unless you are trained to you. Do so and finally, some safety measures. What todo in an emergency? What to do? An emergency, especially where essential oil is another and plate accidentally dropped into the eye. If essential oil droplets accidentally inadvertently get into the eye, use a cotton and cloth or cotton wall with butty oils such as olive oil soaked into it and wipe it carefully over the closed eyelid. I got essentially into my I one time over many years ago on I used a little bass and a little I bath with milk. Aunt then flushed it with cold water. It's the only thing I had it hard, and it really did work, and it helped. If essential oil causes dermal irritation, apply some vegetable oil or cream to the area and discontinue the years of that essential oil with a child appears to have drunk any essential oil. Contact your nearest poisons unit. Personally, I would be contacting the emergency services. And if there's a problem to get a child to hospital, I'd be getting a taxi or a left, and I would be getting them straight to hospital now messing with GPS walking centers and so one straight to hospital. But also get the child to drink milk, whole milk, full fat milk and kick the bottle for identification purposes on. Do not try to induce vomiting, so I look forward to hearing from you as you feedback to may off your personal research Atlantic biphenyls. 12. Language of Aromatherapy: Aroma therapy, ours come in three main notes, and this is sometimes referred to as the language of aromas. And the notes are for essential oils, these are primarily top, middle and bass notes. The first smell to arise from a blend of essential oils is a top note, and this evaporates and fairly quickly taught notes in a fragrance, I usually light sharp, airy, penetrating fairy fresh fragrances. The oils add brightness and energy, aliveness to blend. The aroma of a top note, oil reminds us of wind chimes off-limits those high notes.

Selecting, blending, mixing diluted. Hi! And welcome to this recording while we take a look at what Roman the ripostes do with essential oils. My name. Stepper Casey. I am your course creator and instructor here, and common voices Holistic therapy Aroma Therapists understand that essential oils are safe to use when they are correctly diluted. The aromatherapy Postwar years. Various natural organic oils, butters, waxes, gels, powders, etcetera, into which they will part a single essential oil or a blend of essential oils. Onda blend of essential oils is known as a signature. More reports that in another recording carrier oils are the same as based oils used in massage. First of all, the aroma therapist was select the essential oils for their therapeutic qualities and properties. In order to treat a given condition, for example, athletes foot can benefit with topical application off certain essential oils. Selection is made up to consultation with the client selection off essential oils that's made with the client, who will test the essential oils with the sniff test with of oils that have been dropped onto a paper test strip allows the client to a great. The blend, identified as most suitable for that this is the signature blood out resonates with the client's current emotions on mental states. The base oil is obtained from botanical material, most often nuts and states. For example, sweet almond oil is from the nuts off the tree and roasted boiled was from the seed off the plant, located inside the accessory fruit known as the rose hip. The baseball becomes the carrier or because the essential lawyers are blended and mixed with it. There is an affinity between essential oils and curry oils on, so when they are applied to the scare, the carrier oil allows the essential oil to permeate escape fatty tissues on entry to the blood straight on dso access to the entire body. This topical application also allows for greater uptake off the essential oils into the body. Behrooz also grow to a size of essential oils, passing the blood brain barrier on office Therapeutic benefit to the branch neurochemistry aunt. If the aroma therapist is providing massage treatment than the aroma, therapist will also absolutely essential oils to based lawyers offer the aroma therapist occurring in major acts as a diluting off essential oils before topical application, most often in the form of massage. This dilution off essential oils into a base major and shows the recipient off. The repair receives a second treatment. Risk of toxicity, Sensitization and irritation are reduced. The body, through topical application, will receive the therapeutic benefits off the essential oils on the light massage application. A 21 therapy diluting essential oils does not dilute with therapeutic benefits off the essential oil notice. That style owed the power off them, diluting one drop of essential oil into terminals. Career still means that all the chemical components off the essential oil are retained. But with the addition off the therapeutic properties off the base oil aroma therapist, here's a single essential oil and a percentage drop weight ratio to carry a oil. One drop in 10 mils of carrier oil is not 100.5%. Dilution. Three drops in 10 mils of career oil is 1%. Delusion on six drops in 10 mils carrier oil is 2% delusion. On a 3% dilution off essential oils, there's equal to nine drops in 10 bills of carrier oil. 12 drops of essential oil in 10 mils of career oil as a 4% delusion on a 5% solution requires 15 drops in 10 mills. But there is a paradox that arises. Not all single drops are the same. This is because of viscosity off the essential oil. For example, patchouli essential oils off family. Indeed, my own essential island is really, really on can take some time to get out off the bottle. Indeed, sometimes I think maybe I should open the bottle of to counter all of the contents on diluted with a carrier oil. Other essential oils, such as Jennifer Geranium, are much more fluid. This is why there are three different approaches to measuring essential oils available to aroma therapists and allows for flexibility in blending mixing by moving aroma. Therapists will also dilute essential oils in other majors, such as boaters and waxes, but just are usually very thick. And some, such as cocoa butter of learning solid shea butter is think, but much more softer, pliable waxes, ah, harder sonnets, but again depend upon the product itself. These other career products can be gently melted on, blended with carrier boils on essential oils added to make bombs and creams lotions and body butters. Indeed, we can make scrubs when we have promised stone and things like that. So aromatherapy is fast into the blends of butters and oils and waxes. The aroma of the riposte well are essential oils for their therapeutic properties qualities . So this is where knowledge and understand a off the essential oils off that chemical components and search is really important. That's really interesting toe where in aroma therapist makes a blend off oils produces a bomb for their clients. Self application at home with instructions, focus and safe storage is provided, and this could be applied twice daily for 10 days to two feet in the treatment of athletes Foot, for example, on then store the bomb in a cold, dark place locked out of the reach of Children on confused persons, for example. Essential orders are very effective, unsafe to use, but specialist training, education and instruction are bite off others. So I really hope that you've enjoyed your learning so far.
