Aromatherapy is one of its sub-areas of herbal medicine (phytotherapy), 

Various vegetable oils, also known as essential oils, are used

which are mainly obtained by distillation.


These vegetable oils affect our sense of smell, triggering both emotional reactions and memories in the brain. Pleasant scents relax and brighten our mood.

Healing processes of a physical and/or psychological nature can start in this way and are positively supported.

Aromatherapy is one of the old therapy methods:

Very early in history, people used fragrances to prevent and alleviate disease and to affect the soul. The Egyptians and healers in ancient Greece were already familiar with this art. In ancient times the entire plant was used. Today we only use essential oils.


The chemist Rene Maurice Gatteforce is considered the father of aromatherapy. He discovered lavender oil as a healing essence for burns. The rapid and scar-free healing success was surprising.


Modern aromatherapy is based on empirical knowledge, studies show

the relaxing and calming effects of essential oils.

It is treated with steam inhalation, baths, massage oils, odor plasters and fragrance lamps.

Oral use in the form of drops is also possible, for example when you have a cold.


All medical professions with additional training may use aromatherapy: doctors, naturopaths, nurses and psychotherapists.


What are essential oils?


Plants of all shapes, colors and sizes cover our earth.

Many of these plants contain volatile aromatic compounds in their roots, flowers, stems, seeds or bark,  which give the respective plant its specific aroma: 

the essential oils.


Essential oils are highly concentrated and effective.

They protect the plant from insects and environmental conditions unfavorable for them.

The essential oils even play a role in the pollination of the plant.


Volatile aromatic compounds move rapidly through the air,

We can perceive "scent" when our sensors in the brain compare to the volatile

aromatic compounds interact.


To date, 3,000 species of these volatile aromatic compounds have been discovered.

They each shape the benefit, the aroma and the type of essential oil.

Each essential oil has a unique composition, which also varies from species to species and plant to plant.


Aromatic oils can be very well integrated into psychotherapy and can also be used in hypnosis and self-hypnosis techniques.
