1. The Power of the Bath
"Healing begins with an aromatic bath and daily massage." - Hippocrates
Powerful and restorative, water is essential for every living being. Water sustains life, providing protection and comfort. From the sound of running water to the weightless support a soothing bath eases the stress of the outside world and helps restore the harmony in your body. For centuries, hydrotherapy has been considered an important treatment for a wide range of ailments. Aromatic baths releases powerful scented oils through steam that can give relief from pain, sinus and skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema; they can also treat emotional imbalances, headache, fluid retention, stress, insomnia, muscle aches and circulatory problems.
Create your own private world. Use the power of the bath and create a space of solitude and complete relaxation. In the wonderful world of a comforting bath we can free the mind while we immerse the body in a haven of healing.
Path to the Perfect Bath
Start the experience even before you submerge into the steaming, warm bath infused with powerful aromas. Allow your body to relax as the soothing sound of running water fills up the room. Play relaxing music and dim the lights.
- Add Aroma
Add the essential oil, bath salt or gel of choice, or one that will achieve the results you're seeking. As the steam from the hot water fills the air, your aromatherapy treatment begins.
- Set the Mood
Decorate your surroundings with candles, flowers and other mood enhancing articles. As your bath is getting ready, prepare yourself physically and emotionally-your tempo before and after is part of the experience as well. Take your time.
Slowly step into the hot water, allowing your body to adjust to the heat. Soak, relax, breathe. This is a YOU focused time. Let the steam, water and aroma take you away.
Wrap yourself in a clean, soft towel or your favorite bathrobe. Allow your body to cool down before carefully moisturizing your entire body to complete the treatment.
Special Tips For the Ultimate Experience
A morning bath can make you feel revitalized. Use a stimulating essential oil such as rosemary or jasmine. Don't stay in the tub too long, as an ultra-long bath strains your circulation and hot water dissolves your skin's natural lipids. There is a definite correlation between bath temperatures, duration of soak and the mood your bath leaves you in.

2. The Healing Power of Touch
Anyone wishing to study medicine must master the art of massage." - Hippocrates
Documented evidence of massage dates as far back as 3000 BC. Evidence can be found in several ancient societies where massage was used to treat disease and physical injuries. Today there are numerous variations, alternatives and schools of massage, but they are all based on the simple act of human touch and true affection for the spirit within.
Healing powers of massaging hands empowered with aroma infused oils or lotions can ease away stress, anxiety, tension and give relief to sore and aching muscles. When a pleasant blend of smell, sound and touch are combined, a sense of balancing occurs. Treat yourself or someone close to a soothing massage that will increase your energy and revitalize your spirits. Every part of our bodies can be soothed and nourished with the simple act of a relaxing massage.
- For best results, soak feet in an aroma enriched footbath.
- Sit on a chair and place one foot on the opposite thigh. Apply and rub aroma infused massage oil or lotion onto your foot. Apply pressure with thumbs starting at the sole of your foot, working from the bottom of your arch to the top near your big toe. Repeat five times.
- Make your hand into a fist. Press your knuckles into the bottom of your foot, moving from your heel to your toes. Repeat five times.
- Massage each toe by holding it firmly and moving it from side to side. Extend each toe gently out and away from the ball of your foot. Then apply pressure to the areas between your toes.
- Hold your toes in one hand and bend them backward, holding them there for five to ten seconds. Then bend them in the opposite direction and hold for five to ten seconds. Repeat three times.
- Switch foot and repeat.
- Complete the ritual of touch and smell with beautiful, relaxing sounds. Let nature compose your tunes by conducting your ritual during a gentle rain or on the beach with the sound of the ocean. Or play relaxing, mood enhancing music.

3. Breathing is Living
"Long breath, long life. Short breath, short life. No breath, death." - The Tao of Breath
The history of working with the breath is universal. Taoist masters carefully observed that our emotions influence the way we breathe. When we are angry, our breathing becomes heavy. When we are sad, our breathing becomes choked. When we are happy, our breathing becomes fluid and smooth. When we are peaceful, our breaths become long and quiet.
Breathing is something common we share with every human being. It's with us from the day we are born and it's the very last thing that leaves us in life. Everywhere we go we breathe, unconsciously most of the time. Thus the art of breathing is one of the most accessible tools on our road to wellness, and it costs nothing.
When we find ourselves in stressful situations, our breath becomes shorter and we even forget to breathe, leaving us with an even stronger feeling of anxiousness. By acknowledging the power of breathing, we can help ease stress with a simple exercise that can be done anywhere, anytime.
Helps relieve stress and anxiety. Stretches lungs and increases breathing capacity. Do this ritual first thing every morning or when in stressful situations.
- Take a deep, deep breath, filling your lungs to full capacity.
- Exhale completely, emptying your lungs of all air.
- Repeat five times.
4. Inhale Health
"A flower's fragrance declares to all the world that it is fertile, available and desirable […] Its smell reminds us in vestigial ways of fertility, vigor, life-force, all the optimism, expectancy and passionate bloom of youth. We inhale its ardent aroma and, no matter what our ages, we feel young and nubile in a world aflame with desire." - 1948 Diane Ackerman
Mother Nature's pharmacy of natural, herbal remedies can effectively treat both physical and mental conditions by mere inhalation. Our state of mind and sense of balance can be influenced through our sense of smell. The quality of air we breathe is essential to how we feel and to our health. Our everyday environments are filled with air loaded with organisms that affect our bodies, resulting in sore throats, congestion, colds and flu, allergies and other airborne diseases. Through simple rituals of inhalation, we can protect ourselves against the environments we can't control and maintain a healthy body and mind. Aromafloria has developed specific Inhalation Beads based on the rituals of inhalation. It's the perfect aromatherapy for a life on-the-go
