Many people say that one of aromatherapy benefits is that it can heal the soul. But this is not true. Our soul or spirit is the religiousness of our being. It is the part of us that can communicate with God. Sin has destroyed that ability to communicate with God and has made our souls sick. Only Jesus can restore us. No amount of essential oil can heal our spirit.
Aromatherapy benefits are very natural and wholesome, by working with your body and emotions. By gently activating your body’s own healing abilities, one aromatherapy benefit is it helps to restore balance to your body and mind. Ultimately healing comes from God, He is absolutely able to create miraculous healings, with or with out our asking and he is able to bring about healing with the aid of aromatic plants that He created or with the aid of drugs invented by people. Aromatherapy complements almost any other type of therapy or healing practice, whether conventional or alternative. In some cases it is advisable not to use some essential oils. Also keep in mind that personal care product are full of potentially harmful chemicals, by making your own cosmetics you can protect yourself.
