Aromatherapy is anatural therapy used for centuries that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Aromatherapy uses pure essential oils derived from botanical plant extracts and through its medicinal properties to improve the health of the body, mind and spirit - it enhances both physical and emotional health - and is suitable for adults and children.

Aromatherapy delivers healing properties through the diffusion (inhaling) of pure essential oils. We recommend using onlycertified organic pure essential oils to get the absolute best results - and we just love the beautiful botanical aromas from pure essential oils.


How does Aromatherapy work

When inhaled, scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain and especially impact the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain.

The different scents (aromas), and the chemical constituents of the oils, can produce different emotional and physiological reactions. 

Aromatherapy has not yet undergone as much scientific scrutiny as other complementary therapies, but it can be effective in helping with some complaints.

How to use essential oils for the whole family

Essential oils can be massaged into the skin, added to bath water or vaporised in an oil burner.  Inhalation, by way of diffusing, is arguably the safest and fastest way to get essential oils into your bloodstream. 

We recommend two best and safest ways to diffuse essential oils for the whole family:

1. Best comfort for children- the SnooperBear plush aromatherapy diffuser is a soft and cuddly comforter designed to deliver the benefits of aromatherapy through cuddles.

  • Great for on-the-go comfort.
  • A support 'toy' to help with anxiety.
  • Suitable for any pure essential oil or pure oil blends.

2. Best for the home - invest in a quality ultrasonic cool mist diffuser, such as our Aroma Snooze 6-in-1 diffuser/humidifier machine.

  • Releases a cool mist, preserving the beneficial properties of the oils in the air.
  • Built-in air purifier, releases healthy negative ions making the air better to breathe.
  • No heat source, the unit is always cool to touch, making it perfectly safe for the whole family.
  • Runs continuously for 10 hours and up to 18 hours on intermittent mist. 
  • Automatically switches off when the water level gets low.

A word of caution: Essential oils are very potent and should never be swallowed or applied undiluted to the skin.
