Aromatherapy pendants are based on the fact that, from times immemorial, it has been perceived that the sense of smell in the human species is the most developed among all the senses. It evokes a much stronger and faster response than any other sense. This has led to the use of aromatherapy on a professional level by healers and therapists in various different alternative healing modalities.
Aromatherapy is used in saunas and baths, as oils and bath salts. It is also used in massage therapy and as room fresheners in the form of scented candles, spritzers and simmering hot potpourris. The ancient mystics and the Shamans had discovered centuries ago what each scent can do for people; what kind of moods and emotions and other therapeutic effects it can induce on the human body, mind and soul. Based on that ancient knowledge, the science of aromatherapy has now been so refined that it is even available in the form of aromatherapy pendants today!
Research has shown that while an aromatherapy bath or massage works wonders on acute aches and pains and other physical or psychological ailments, it takes a prolonged and consistent use of aromatherapy to help cure chronic problems. Now obviously it is not practically feasible to carry a lighted aromatherapy candle all around with you wherever you go. This called for the development of something that could be easily worn by a person on his body. What better than a pendant!
