芳疗就是精油吗?

Aromatherapy is the essential oil ?



1、什么是精油 

 what are the essential oil ?

 精油是从植物中提取出来的天然物质,并非所有的植物都能提炼精油,精油蕴藏在植物的根、茎、叶、花或果实中。 


2、精油的提炼 

How are essential oils extracted ? 

弄清楚精油是如何被提炼的,也是非常重要的。从同一种植物中提炼精油,提炼的方式不同,也会导致产品迥然不同。

3、精油不“油”

Essential oils do not feel oily

 精油的“油”字是一种被误解的概念,纯精油本身并不油腻。

 虽然他们被称为“油”,更重要的因素则是因为它们含有植物油溶性化学物质(每种精油通常含有100至200化学物质,远超任何一种人工合成的药物)。这种复杂的化学成分让精油具有奇妙的治疗性能,并解释了为什么不同的精油经过复配后,可能有重叠协同效应,达到1+1>2的效果。


4、植物本身也在用精油 

Essential oils are also used by plants themselves.

精油是植物的灵魂,植物本身也使用精油。天然植物精油可以帮助植物控制感染,控制湿度,植物荷尔蒙激素的调整作用,伤口愈合,吸引或预防昆虫

鸟类以及动物。




芳疗与精油之间的是君臣、父子、还是兄弟关系 ?

What is the difference between "aromatherapy" and "essential oils"?


很不可思议的是,从根本意义上而言,这些术语意味着同样的事情。 甚至很多人认为“芳香疗法”是一种误称,因为从字面意义,或者英文单词的解释上,都意味着这是一种让人愉悦情绪,气味芬芳好闻的东西。

然而,事实上并不是所有的精油都具备这种芬芳的气味,相反有很多精油的味道并不怎么样,也会因不同的人,闻嗅也会有不同的感知。气味的判断闻嗅是很主观的,譬如德国洋甘菊,薰衣草、快乐鼠尾草都是很多主观判断的精油,有些人喜欢薰衣草的芳香,有些人则并不那么喜欢,而对于快乐鼠尾草的味道,则让很多人皱起眉头。 

此外,芳香疗法从字面意义上理解,更多则是意味着以闻嗅法——气味的吸入为主作为精油的主要治疗途径,然而精油能发挥很强大治疗效果的途径还有很多,譬如按摩等。 

所以,从这个层面上而言,定义为“精油疗法”或许是更具体的,具有描述性的名称,实际上这是一种运用植物精油的艺术,芳香闻嗅,按摩养护,调香护理,结合其他的医学护理都是应用的路径,但是将其称为“芳香疗法”,已经是一个国际通用的规则,就譬如精油不油腻,但是依然称之为“油”一样,这是一种通用的名称识别。 

在这个意义上,精油与芳香疗法不是任何君臣父子兄弟关系,但是有具备上述一切的关系,原则上使用精油是一门艺术。

就芳香疗法而言,真正运用好精油是一门庞大的体系,需要掌握的知识体系也非常庞大,包括:植物药学、精油、精油化学、情绪疗愈、心理学、基础医学、医药学、现代医学、调香艺术等非常多体系的综合学习。

从这一点上,自然疗法然然认为,芳香疗法只是一种符号的称谓,真正熟稔运用芳香疗法,则是在熟练掌握以上各种体系的基础上,根据个案的实际情况,准确的给予客户的疗愈方式,这种方式可以是闻嗅,涂抹按摩等一切可以应用精油的安全使用艺术。

 3、Essential oils do not feel oily

 they are called "oils" because theycontain the oil-soluble chemicals in the plant (usually 100 to 200 chemicalsper essential oil). This complex chemistry gives essential oils theirtherapeutic properties and explains why different essential oils may haveoverlapping effects.

 

4、Essential oils are also used by plants themselves

Naturally occurring essential oils inplants help with infection control, humidity control, hormonal effects, woundhealing, and attracting or repelling insects, birds, and animals.

 

5、What is the difference between"aromatherapy" and "essential oils"?

Basically, these terms mean the samething.We think the term "aromatherapy" is a bit of a misnomer becauseit implies that all essential oils smell nice. On the contrary, there are manyessential oils that do not have a pleasant odor. While smell is verysubjective, German chamomile is an example of an essential oil that does notappeal to many people. Also, the name "aromatherapy" implies thatsmelling, or inhaling, essential oils is the only way to get therapeutic benefit,but there are actually a number of ways to use essential oils. 


While we think the term "essential oil therapy" is a more descriptivename for this topic, we refer to it as "aromatherapy" because itcurrently has better name recognition.
