— Aromatherapy, also known as Essential Oils Therapy, is a form of alternative medicine or complementary therapy that uses plant materials and their oils to promote general health and improve psychological well-being.
Essential oils are extracted from plants and mixed with oil, alcohol, or even lotion. They can be sprayed into the air, inhaled, massaged into the skin, or used in baths. It is believed that the strong fragrances in the oils prompt nerves in the nose to send impulses to the brain, specifically to the parts that control memories and emotions. The oils interact with hormones and enzymes in the body, consequently altering pulse and blood pressure, and could also encourage the body to fight pain. It is also worth noting that using aromatherapy can have either a calming or stimulating effect, depending on the used type of oil; some oils make for better circulation and help in eliminating toxins, while others can actually help in cell regeneration.
Seniors can notably benefit from Aromatherapy, as it can help them with various discomforts and ailments, such as dementia, arthritis, in addition to circulation problems and respiratory infections.
For seniors, Aromatherapy works best when coupled with Hydrotherapy, which is the use of water in treating different conditions, such as arthritis and other rheumatism-related problems. This can easily be found in walk-in tubs, which are usually used by seniors and/ or people with mobility problems.
Walk-in tubs with Aromatherapy systems can offer a restoring and mitigating bathing experience. The addition of essential oils can upgrade a basic bath, turning it into a relaxing and remedial experience based on the utilized oils.
Typically, air jets in walk-in tubs are infused with preferred fragrances and then turned on in order to start the process of massaging weary muscles. This, with the help of hot water, assists in opening pores and moisturizing skin, as well as general detoxification.
As a result, blood circulation is improved, anxiety is relieved, and stress is treated.
