Aromatherapy is gaining momentum as it is chemical free, natural, and organic for of therapy, if designed in accordance to international guidelines. These regulate authenticity of the oils, organic extraction mechanisms, no animal testing, and quality of the final product. Our aromatherapy therapist, Gosia Kowalska (MsC in Complementary and Alternative Medicine) utilizes blends of therapeutic essential oils that can be issued through topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to stimulate a desired response. She adheres to the above mentioned guidelines while preparing an individual tincture just for you. Each one of them is handmade by Gosia and tailored to your specific needs.
As aromatherapy utilises only natural ingredients, it stimulates natural body healing processes, regaining equilibrium, and stimulates all body systems to work efficiently. This is the reason why not only therapists and doctors are recommending the use of aromatherapy, but more and more patients are discovering its potential and effectiveness.
Different tinctures are designed to help with different problems or concerns. Gosia named them, so the name corresponds with the task that the oils are designed to accomplish. For example face oils, creams and body lotions are designed to treat specific skin type and its accompanying major issues (dry, sensitive, acne prone, oily ect). Bath and body oils will not only help your skin to feel moisturised, conditioned and refreshed, but also will ease your pains, or energise, help you relax or sleep. More specific tinctures made by Gosia include: hair loss, scar treatment, psoriasis release, pregnancy and labour, cancer, lymphatic drainage, sport injuries, arthritis, rheumatism and many more.
