Three essential oils to reduce high blood pressure

Here is a good source reference for an essay.  Lavender, sweet marjoram and ylang ylang essential oils alleviate high blood pressure. Learn about their properties and how to apply them.
Read the article by Stephanie Holland

Aldehydes generally (ending in al like citral) lower blood pressure.  It follows that when blending these oils may best be avoided by clients with low blood pressure as is rosemary for clients with high blood pressure.  This emphasises the importance of filling in a client record card to pick up points like this.

Shirley Price people, meet the tutors - Jan's Benham's early case histories in 1983

From Shirley Price, Practical Aromatherapy 1983  
 "13.  Case Histories
It is always exciting and stimulating to read about successful case histories, but at the same time it must be remembered that for every ten spectacular case histories there are ten with only mediocre results and possibly one or two where very little change is noticed.  These are the people who need some other form of natural treatment as backup such as acupuncture, reflexology, diet or naturopathy.  Also if only the symptoms are being treated or if it is not clear what is causing the symptoms and the wrong choice of oil is made then the results cannot be expected to be miraculous.  Don’t give up try a different mix of essential oils
From Jan Bentham a mobile aromatherapist in Nottinghamshire:
Debbie, 18 Years old.  Backache that had lasted two months had started through heavy lifting as this is part of her job.  The doctor could not help her except to give her painkillers and the suggestion to take things easy.  She came to me and I examined her thoroughly and found no vertebrae out of place.  I then proceeded to do reflexology rather than back massage.  The most tender spots were the lower back on both feet and the sciatic nerve affecting the hip.  These areas were massaged on the feet for about 15 minutes until they were hardly painful. I gave her a special oil to put into the bath mixed mainly with juniper and rosemary.  Another appointment was made for the following week.  The next day Debbie was in a lot more pain from her neck; the day after that the back was completely free of pain and stayed like that.  When she came to me the following week she was completely clear of pain whereas before she had to miss work and was in tears because of the pain.  I saw her recently six weeks after her last treatment and she was still pain free and had been able to go about her normal duties of work unhindered.
Clive Rice the Captain of Nottinghamshire Cricket Club could not bowl since the beginning of February and it was now nearing the end of may……………………..
One elderly woman came in with osteoarthritis……………..
One of my clients an elderly man……………
Another client of mine came to me very nervous………………..
One client regular comes for aromatherapy treatments……………………
There is a women who I see once every so often………………

Jan Bentham is principal of the Shirley Price College of Aromatherapy and tutors the Shirley Price aromatherapy diploma and teacher training which is IFPA accredited. Canadian accreditations are also available.  Jan has aptitude and interest in teaching a number of natural therapies and the making of cosmetics.  Jan divides her teaching schedule between the UK and Canada. Sara Gelzer is Switzerland based and is principal of the International College.  Sara tutors the Shirley Price distance learning diploma.

Practical Aromatherapy by Shirley Price is an extraordinary and groundbreaking book.  The therapeutic cross reference in chapter 12 to top middle and base notes remains one of the most useful charts in aromatherapy.  Given the 6000 students who have passed through the Shirley Price college it seems poor scholarship to me not to refer to the contribution she and her family has made not just as authors and teachers but also to putting the marketing of essential oils and practice of aromatherapy on a professional footing worldwide with trade journals and associations of practicing professionals.

ah the arts of peace.  we have had our religious fundamentalism in the UK. Not just centuries ago and I like to think of the best kind as well too like John Wesley who preached in Hinckley and carried plant oils with him for natural healing.

I must admit to being a fan of all things latin.  This year I have been very busy as a client, some old friends of my father's in Hinckley, needed a lot of attention but most years I travel to Argentina for 6 weeks in November to write and catch up and see the horses.

STRESS  This does not apply to everyone I agree but can you watch and listen to the nice video clips above without smiling?


either you are some way down life's spiritual path or maybe you should visit your doctor

No, ok you still have some stress but the good news is its treatable!

Argentina was where I first came acoss Shirley Price, today we import a number of oils from Argentina including the excellent Jojoba from Eco-oils.  Not everyone gets on with jojoba for the treatment of psoriasis but usually this is jojoba which is over 18 months old and has lost its vitamins and an element of its 'life force'.  Usually aromatherapists prefer evening primrose oil or if the budget will stretch fresh season argan oil from morocco.  Still this is indirect sunshine and psoriasis responds well to sunshine of a direct kind.


Food for thought- Dr Chris Steele's Fat Farewell Plan, diet and exercise

In fact very few of us face life threatening physically stressful situations for which our bodies are designed (fight or flight) but our body's systems can fall into a habit of chronic stress due to afflictive emotions.

Excessive weight gain and stress is one of the most common reasons for which aromatherapists are consulted.  One warning sign of excessive stress is weight gain.

This is because when you are in a stressful situation, your body will release the hormones cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline. If this persists this excessive hormone production may undermine your immune system, making you more susceptible to illness, as well as lead your body to release fat and sugar into your blood stream ready for physical action which doesnt come, which may lead you to gain weight.

In the long term stress can undermine your immune system and make you prone to illness.  Diet and exercise are factors but a warning sign of stress is the inability to cope with negative emotions and communicate. 

The mental symptoms may involve you being:
Always hungry, or having no appetite
Crying often
Have trouble sleeping and feel tired
Have trouble concentrating

When you look back at times when you felt stressed have you often wondered 'what was that about?'.  The words Shakespeare put into the mouth of his characters are always a treasure house.  Here we could quote the line 'nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so'.  Of course there is a difference between good and evil but what Shakespeare meant here is that faced with a stressful situation and the need to win it is easy to lose perspective and only afterwards can things be seen in a proper perspective.

It takes only a few essential oil molecules to stimulate the limbic brain and this can work wonders in gaining time and perspective to see things in a correct light.

Tip! shop bought doughballs with essential oils soon dry out.  Keep the doughball in the bag and tin provided.  Revitalise the dough with a little grapeseed oil.

Besides aromatherapy if you are still stressed you should address the issue as it may lead to physical symptoms and illness.

A simple coping strategy involves the word STRESS:  For brevity I have changed Dr Chris Steele's words a bit.

1.  Socialise.  Stop stressing alone and share your worries. A problem shared is a problem halved!
2.  Take stock.  Change what you can change.  Accept what you cant change.
3.  Read. Ensure you have a relaxing and absorbing hobby.  For example reading.
4.  Exercise. You should walk at least 30 minutes each day for example take a walk at lunchtime.
5.  Say no! Try to work ever more effectively with colleagues to ensure you dont end up doing it all!
6.  Share your life with a pet or volunteer to walk someone elses pet.

"Dr Steele writes if you feel that you are suffering from stress, see you GP, but do not accept long term tranquilliser prescriptions."

How do plant oils help us? - The Shirley Price Aromatherapy Everyday Guide


Welcome to 

Shirley Price 


in 2011

How do plant oils help us? Shirley Price Essential Oils for Aromatherapy Colleges, students and practicioners, Pharmacy and Cosmetics are on Amazon with free next day delivery to 10 EU Countries. 


Uplifting, protective, calming, and regenerating, essential oils are a unique gift 
from the natural world. Often referred to as “liquid sunshine” or the very essence 
of a plant, essential oils are aromatic liquids derived from tree leaves, branches 
and wood, flowers, roots, bushes, fruit parts and seeds. They are a mixture of 
upto 200 compounds and this mixture gives the oils derived useful properties 
which with diligent study and careful use have proved effective in many settings 
home, office, salon, hospice and hospital.  Essential oils not only determine 
the plant’s aroma, but are vital for plants to grow, live, evolve, and adapt.

The use of plant oils for beauty and health and massage for men and women 
is recorded in classicial wriings and the bible and supported by archeological 
finds dating back thousands of years.  The greeks called massage 'rubbing' 
and it was used to keep musculature in peak condition just as racehorses 
today are 'strapped'.  Massage has proved an excellent therapy in itself for 
health and wellbeing.  Essential oils also help defend plants from insects, 
environmental conditions, and disease. Today, research shows that when 
used aromatically, applied topically, essential oils can calm, energize, balance, 
purify, and rejuvenate the mind and body.

From perfumes and aromatherapy to cooking and medicinal purposes, essential 
oils have been a vital part of everyday life and remain popular today for the 
treatment of common ailments, lacking the side effects of synthetic aroma products 
to which the body is unadapted.  Shirley and Len Price, Founders of 
Shirley Price   Aromatherapy published books which long after retirement remain 
bestsellers, supplied 150 colleges and academic institutions with oils of the highest 
quality and travelled the world learning and teaching the ancient healing art of 
aromatherapy. They played a direct part in the foundation of the leading 
international professional bodies IFPA (ISPA), and the IFA.  The result? A college 
though which has passed over 6000 students creating the most knowledgeable
and demanding aroma community in the world, a line of pure, therapeutic-grade 
essential oils of the highest quality, including over 150 single essential oils and 
unique essential oil blends, vegetable oils, and natural skincare.

Shirley Price oils are stocked by award winning retailers, by 5 star spas worldwide 
and available from stockists many of whom trained with the Shirley Price 
International College of Aromatherapy, satellite colleges and correspondent colleges 
all over the world.

Essential oils distilled from plant matter, expressed from Citrus rinds or collected as a resin have an important role to play in the home, in industry and in preventative medicine.  Western clinical practice has evolved efficiently to treat the symptoms of illness.  There is growing realisation that equal attention should be paid, as it traditionally has been all over the world, to recognising and treating the predisposing factors which make an individual susceptible to illness and maintaining emotional and bodily health.  Prevention is as they say better than a cure!

Shirley Price Essential Oils
In the past Century great cities have sprung up all over the world with a stressful and unnatural lifestyle for the people living and working within them. Of course there are many advantages to urban living as well.  It concerns us that so many people are cut off from the important messages of nature in their enviroment.  However help is at hand for individual care and vitality in the convenient form of Essential oils which can be used in the bath, diffused in the air, in a steam inhalation or in massage.
世紀に渡り大都市は、そこで住み働く人々にとって、ストレスに満ちた不自然な生活様式を、世界中に生み出しました。 当然都市生活は、多くの利点も兼ね備えています。多くの人々がその環境の中で、自然の重要なメッセージから断ち切られている事を、私達は考えさせられます。しかしながら、個人のケアと、便利で活力に満ちた精油を、お風呂、室内芳香、蒸気吸入またはマッサージをして使うことで、状況を改善できます。

We should say is that less is more where essential oils are concerned.  We believe essential oils to be of great value but an abundance of caution must be exercised in their use.   In this little guide you will find, I hope, the answer to many of your questions regarding essential oils, how they are produced, some of the science behind their use and how to use them with success in the home for pleasure and to prevent ill health, maintain emotional equilibrium or in therapy.
精油が関わることで、ほんの少しの物が、多きな意味を持つと私達はは言いたいのです。 私達は、精油には大きな価値があると信じていますが、より大きな注意が、使用する上で必要となります。 この小さなガイドが、あなたの多くの質問に答えることを、私達は望んでいます。例えば、精油について、またそれらがどのように生産されるか、使用方法の背景にある科学、家庭での正しい利用方法、思わしくない健康を防ぐ方法、感情の平衡の維持、また療法について等について、知ることができます。

We first examine the nature of aromatherapy with details about the production, composition and value of essential oils.  Then onto the carriers used to dilute the oils, hydrolats and blending the oils.  Next we examine the important areas of skin care, mums, babies and children and sports and male use.  We then move into the use of aromatherapy for the treatment of common ailments.
私達は最初に精油の生産、構成および性質の細部に渡るaromatherapyの性質を検査します。 それから精油を希釈する為のキャリアオイル、及び蒸留水とブレンドします 次に私達は、スキンケアの重要な分野を、母親と赤ん坊、および子供とスポーツ、また男性の使用において検査します。そして 私達は共通の疾患の処置のためのaromatherapyの使用を試みます。

The techniques ideas and suggestions in this guide are not intended as a substitute for proper medical advice.  Any application of the techniques ideas and suggestions in this guide is at the readers sole discretion and risk.  If you have symptoms of illness you should see a doctor.
このガイドにおける技術と提案は、適切な医師の忠告の代理として意図されてはいません。 このガイドの技術の考えと提案は、どの適用におけるリスクも、読者の方の責任が必要とされます。 もしあなたが病気の徴候を有するとすれば、医者に行くべきです。

At our training centre in Hinckley UK and in venues worldwide we provide training courses in the appropriate use of essential oils and training makes all the difference.  If you want to achieve the results in the Shirley Price textbooks it is necessary to use true whole oils grown for aromatherapy and put the time into training in their use.  Our courses range from a long weekend introductory course to a four module diploma course which prepares you for the final examination and IFPA membership.  Taking the first module of this course entitles you to student membership of IFPA and access to professional indemnity insurance.
私達は精油の適切な使用の訓練課程を提供し、訓練は成果を生み出します。 もしシャーリー・プライスの教科書を用いて、結果を達成したいと思えば、アロマセラピーの為に育てられた本当のオイルを使用し、その使用の訓練に時間を割く事が必要です。 私達のコースは、長い週末のコースから、最終試験およびIFPA会員になる為の4つのモジュールのコースまであます。 このコースの最初のモジュールを受講することで、IFPAの学生会員および専門の損害保障保険の加入資格が与えられます。
Finally we describe what to expect from a session with an aromatherapist.  This can be likened to the regular check up. Many care for their car better than their health and the same principles apply to keep the body in good shape and repair as a car or animal.  Aromatherapists use the oils but they have other skills in their toolchest too like massage and reflexology and will advise on nutrition exercise and lifestyle.  Do check the qualifications of the local aromatherapists as they range from a short course to a full diploma in aromatherapy.

最後に私達は、アロマセラピストの会議から期待できることを記述します。 これは規則的に確認することができます。 多数の人は、彼らの健康より彼らの車を良い状態に保ち、それと同じ原則が、車や動物を気遣うのと同じように、健康の維持にも対応できます。アロマセラピストは、精油を使用し、その他の技術として、マッサージおよびリフレクソロジー、更に栄養の摂取の仕方から、生活様式の助言までする事が可能です。地域のアロマセラピストの資格を確認することを進めます。それは、 短期講習からaromatherapyの完全なディプロマの取得まで、幅広いからです。

What is Aromatherapy?アロマセラピーとは?

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils derived from plants to promote Good Health and Vitality in mind and body.  Good Health, an introductory DVD with Victoria Sprigg featuring the Products and Training of Shirley Price Aromatherapy Ltd is available from WH Smith.

Aromatherapy is practised in the home and by professional aromatherapists in clinics, hosopices and hospitals. Aromatherapists are holistic therapists trained in aromatherapy, reflexology and massage therapy.  Before practising as professional aromatherapists students of the art and science of aromatherapy complete rigourous courses of study and pass the examinations of the accredited colleges of the International Federation of Professional Arometherapists and the International Federation of Aromatherapists and other organisations worldwide.
アロマセラピーは家で、そしてクリニック、ホスピス、病院で、専門のアロマセラピストにより実践されています。 アロマセラピストは、アロマセラピー、リフレクソロジー、およびマッサージ療法において訓練されたホリスティックな療法士です。厳密な教科課程のもと、アロマセラピーの芸術と科学を、専門のアロマセラピスト学生として学び、プロフェッショナルアロマセラピストの国際的な連合であるIFPA IFA,及び世界中にある他の組織の国際的な連合に認定された試験に合格することを目指して下さい。
The Shirley Price International College of Aromatherapy has trained over 5000 students in Aromatherapy, Anatomy and Physiology and Massage therapy.
Shirley Price and other practicing aromatherapists have found  the properties of 46 essential oils and resinoids described in this Guide can be used in many ways without harm subject to the cautions which we include.
You could say no home should be without at least 10 of the oils to cleanse the air of microbes and use day to day.  The oils should stored in a fabric case or box safely out of reach of young children.
家庭が、空気中の微生物の空気を清潔にする上で、少なくとも10種の精油が日常的に必要であるということが言えます。 それらの精油は、幼児の手の届かない場所で、箱の中で安全に管理される必要があります。

アロマセラピストは、その他の精油と樹脂を、特別な状況で使用する為に道具箱に備えています シャーリープライスアロマセラピーは、プロフェッショナルなアロマセラピストの使用する80以上の精油と樹脂を保管しています。また、特別な精油の調査は、現在も進行中です。

The particular properties of extracts of parts of many of the plants named above and many other plants have been used to promote health and well-being since records in China, India and the Mediterranean. The father of modern medicine Hippocrates considered a massage with aromatic oils essential for maintaining good health.  Egypt is ideally suited to the production of aromatic plants with reliable water from the Nile River used for irrigation and abundant sunshine.  The process of steam distillation of plant matter to produce essential oils used as flavourings, perfumes and therapeutically was perfected a thousand years ago causing use of plant oils to become more widespread.
中国、インド、地中海で記録されて以来、上記された多くの植物が特定の抽出方法により摘出され、その他多くの植物が健康と福利を促進する為に使用されてきました。 現代医学の祖ヒポクラテスは、健康を維持するために、芳香オイルを用いたマッサージが必要不可欠だと説きました。 エジプトでは、は潅漑に必要な豊富な日光にとナイル川の水が、芳香の植物の生産に理想的に環境を生み出しました。植物から精油を抽出する水蒸気蒸留法は、香り付け、香水、医療への利用として千年前に確立し、精油の利用法は現在に渡り幅広く受け継がれてきました。

In the 20th Century Gattefosse coined the term Aromatherapy to describe the use of essential oils for their therapeutic value and his book is still in print.  Gattefosse, upon burning his hand in a laboratory accident, rolled around on the ground outside to extinguish the flames.  Doing this he contracted gangrene and he found that using Lavender oil resulted in the hand healing very rapidly with surprisingly few scars. Gangrene leads to death in many cases and Gattefosse realised he had discovered something of importance.

20世紀、ガットホセは治療上に役立つ精油の使用法を記述する為、アロマセラピーという言葉を生み出し、彼の本は今でも印刷され続けています。 実験室で事故により彼は手に火傷を負い、火を消すために外へ移動しました。 彼はこの事がきっかけで、ラベンダーの精油を使用すると、意外にも少数の傷だけを残し、非常に早く火傷を治療できることを発見しました。壊疽は多くの場合死をもたらしますが、彼は重要な何かを発見したことを悟りました。

It led him to begin investigating scientifically the therapeutic value and uses of lavender and many other essential oils.  At the same time Miller in England was doing extensive work on the medicinal properties of plants, part of  a long tradition of English herbalism.  Culpeppers famous ‘Herbal’ of 1692 documents the many uses of plants and plant oils grown in English gardens.  By the 1930s Lavender grown in England on chalk was considered the finest in the world.

これは彼を、ラベンダーおよびその他の多くの精油の治療上の価値とその使用法を、医学的に調査し始める事に導きました。同時にイギリスのミラーは植物の薬効成分の広範な役割を研究し、英国のハーバリズムの長い伝統の一部分を担いました。 カルペッパーは、英国の庭で育つ1692のハーブの利用法とその精油の文書を残した事で有名です。イングランドのチョークで育った1930年代のラベンダーは、世界で最も良いものと考慮されました。
As the science of chemistry advances the civilised world learns how to synthesise medicines whichagain allow more widespread use of the chemicals contained in plants and synthesis of those chemicals which are not found in nature but have therapeutic effect.  When the lights of civilisation burned low in the second world war and medicine was hard to come by a French doctor Valnet with other french doctors turned again to the qualities of traditional herbal medicine to treat the wounded and infirm.


One thing you learn about essential oils is how much has been forgotten!  For example extensive trials of the anti microbial properties of essential oils were made in France in the 1960s leading to their routine vaporisation in hospitals and the home.  The work of Jane Buckle in the USA has seen over 40 hospitals take advantage of the antimicrobial properties of the essential oils while RJ Buckle Associates has trained over 2000 nurses in their use.  Nowadays we read of successful trials of essential in hospitals in the UK in combating MRSA and other microbes increasingly resistant to synthetic medicines.  The work of Bob Harris of Essential Oil Consultants in preserving a database of clinical trials and research using essential oils should ensure much less is forgotten and is an invaluable resource for our College students.
あなたが精油について学ぶ1つの事は、精油がどの程度忘れられてきたかということでもあります。例えば、 精油の反微生物の特性の広範囲な試験は、1960年代に行われ、病院および家で定期的に蒸発する習慣をもたらしました。 米国のジェーン・バックルは、30の病院における精油の抗菌特性の利用を調査しました。 近代私達は、抗生物質が効かないMRSAおよび他の微生物から身体を守るため、精油の利用の試験の実績をイギリスの病院で導きました。精油コンサルタントであるボブ・ハリスの、精油の利用法の調査と、医療的利用法の研究結果は、 多くが忘れ去られてきましたが、我々の学生にとって非常に価値ある資源だと言うことができます。
Since the 1960’s, we have learned that synthesised drugs and antiseptics are not all conquering and that nature provides a solution that is often more suited to the task even if we do not as yet appreciate the science by which all essenti al oils work.

Work has continued and has been led by Keller in Germany, Marguerite Maury and her husband in London, Paris and Switzerland.  Two leading students of Marguerite Maury’s were Eve Taylor and Shirley Price.  With Tisserand, the companies of Eve Taylor and Shirley Price are the leading aromatherapy laboratories and colleges in England today. ドイツではケラーが、ロンドン・パリ・スイスではマーガレット・モーリーと彼女の夫が、更なる研究を進めて来ました。マーガレット・モーリーの2人の優秀な学生は、イブ・タイラーとシャーリー・プライスでしたティスランドと共に、イブ・タイラーとシャーリー・プライスは、アロマセラピーの工場と学校をイギリスに設立しました。
The science of essential oils has been considerably advanced by the painstaking work of Dr Katja Savboda and colleagues have thrown much light on the anti microbial and preservative qualities of essential oils..
精油の科学は、努力を惜しまないKatja Savboda博士と彼の同僚により進められ、精油の抗真菌な特性と保存力にの多くのライトを投げかけました。

The Shirley Price Aromatherapy Ltd factory and office training premises are located in Hinckley, England opposite the railway station.  From here essential oils are sourced from around the world, they and aromatherapy skincare products are handmade in the factory and exported to more than 40 countries worldwide to professional aromatherapists, distributors and stockists.

Plant families.  There are hundreds of plant families.  All plants utilise the constituents of what is distilled from them as essential oil to maintain health and combat in particular infection from fungi, bacteria and viruses.  Essential oil can be seen as the constituents of the plants immune systems.
植物系統。 何百もの植物系統が存在します。 すべての植物は蒸溜により精油となり、健康を維持し、菌類、細菌およびウイルスからの伝染と戦うために、その精油の要素を利用することができます。 精油は、植物の免疫組織の要素として見なすことができます。
The safe six.  Not all essential oils however can be used safely in aromatherapy.  The most useful essential oils and those to which the human body is most adapted belong to six plant families in particular: Pinaceae , Umbelliferae Lauraceae ,  Lamiaceae,  Mytaceae, Rutaceae (PULLMR).
安全な6つの精油。全ての精油が安全ということではないが、アロマセラピーとして安全に使用することができます。最も有用価値が高く、身体に適合する6つの植物系統は、松科、セリ科、クスノキ科、シソ科、フトモモ科、ミカン科 (PULLMR・・・英語表示の頭文字の総合)
Research.  Ever since the potential of the most highly evolved aromatic plants was first realised not just for home use but for medical use the challenge to researchers has been to better understand how to utilise essential oils safely which are derived beyond this narrow group. Every year the research boundaries advance.
研究。 最も潜在性の高い芳香植物を、家庭のみでなく医療分野において、上記の限られた精油にかぎらず多くの精油を安全に使用するために、研究者は挑戦を重ねてきました。以来研究者への挑戦はよりよく理解することである。 毎年、その研究は続けれらています。 1996/2006

Essential oils are extracted from plants by various processes; normally by steam distilling the plant matter extracting all the volatile constituents.  Some plants generate more essential oils than others.  Eucalyptus leaves contain 10% by weight of essential oils while 10,000 kg of Rose petals are required to generate just kg of Bulgarian Rose Otto.
精油はさまざまなプロセスによって植物から抽出されます。通常、蒸気蒸留法により、植物から揮発性成分が 抽出されます。特定の植物は、他の植物より多くの精油を含んでいます。 ユーカリの葉は、重量の10パーセントの精油を含みますが、ブルガリアン・ローズオットーは、10,000kgの花びらから1kgの精油しか抽出することができません。
Essential oils can be extracted from many types of plants and from different parts of the plant. One oil may come from the leaves, for example eucalyptus, and another from the roots, for example ginger, another from the flowers, the rose. Each has unique properties which can be utilised very effectively by the human body to aid health and prevent disease.
精油は多くの種類の植物の、異なった部分から抽出することができます。 例えばユーカリの精油は葉から抽出でき、ショウガの精油は根から抽出することができます。またローズは花から抽出することができます。それぞれの特徴ある特性が、とても効果的に、病気を予防し健康を促進させます。

An early illustration 1881 (Koch) of the antibacterial effectiveness of aromatic compounds
Most Essential oils have important antiseptic properties; many also fight fungal infections such as athlete's foot or candida, and others even combat viruses such as warts or colds. Plants which contain essential oils are among the most long lived on the planet.  Rootstock of Eucalyptus has been found to be 10,000 years old.  The properties of essential oils are many and varied; they can help many skin conditions and aid the renewal of cells, which is one of the ways in which frankincense helps to prevent scarring; they can be anti-spasmodic, which means they will help to prevent the spasms that cause sickness and vomiting. Some essential oils are known for their menstruation-regulating properties, others for detoxifying the system, thus being helpful in treating cellulite and other toxic conditions.  Other oils are renowned for expressing emotions and assisting mental and spiritual clarity.
Of particular importance in this list of useful properties is the fact that all essential oils are normalising. An essential oil takes the body back to it’s ‘normal’ state; it never takes it past this point to cause an opposite condition.
True essential oils are complete in themselves - no part of them has been extracted and nothing has been added. Aromatherapists believe that this untouched wholeness is of paramount importance and that even elements present in tiny proportions play a crucial role. It is the ‘wholeness’ of the oil which gives it its normalising properties
Essential oil used in the food and perfume industries are usually ‘standardised’ by removing some parts of the oil and sometimes adding other ingredients (even synthetics) in order to achieve a uniform standard.
Such oils should never be used in aromatherapy since only the COMPLETE, TRUE oil, taken straight from the still, has full therapeutic value.  It may be that the properties of the oils depend on constituents which are present in minute quantities rather than the principal constituents of the oils (Valnet).

The Essential Oils

Some oils need care in use and should never be sold over the counter except by an aromatherapist or trained pharmacist who can advise on their use. The therapeutic effect of these and other oils is explained in The Shirley Price Aromatherapy Workbook and in greater depth in Shirley Price’s Aromatherapy for Health Professionals both international bestsellers.
Most of the oils listed below are harmless in normal aromatherapy use.  The general effect and perfumery classification is given below.  Higher notes are more volatile and shortlived.  They are generally more energetic as research in the USA shows. More detailed oil monographs can be found in textbooks and on our website

Katja Svoboda has worked on aromatic and medicinal plants with the Scottish Agricultural College (where they hold a world database of herbs and provide GC MS testing). She says that both rosemary and sage have antioxidant, neurological and anti-ageing properties. She recommends regular consumption of fresh leaves, in salads ideally. This way you are unlikely to consume too much of their potent chemicals.

Oil Quality


We trust the GC MS and GLC traces our suppliers provide but we verify too!  GC MS and GLC testing provides a chemical footprint of the sample of oil tested which can be compared to reference compositions to provide assurance of the oils purity.

Oil quality is a personal matter too.  Buying essential oils is however for all the science a matter of trust. We are forthunate to deal with the world top essential oil agents who have decades of experience and who commission crops specifically for aromatherapy. Experienced noses among the workers making up the oils soon spot unusual aromas.  Experienced customers too feedback quickly if a batch is out of the ordinary.

I was recently impressed by the claims of a manufacturer.  They claimed in a national catalogue to test every batch of oil they sell in an ongoing programme.  Such testing is expensive and believing a cheap source of testing had become available compared to our usual supplier I rang the laboratory named for a GC MS test of a batch of oils from a new supplier in Sri Lanka.  I was disappointed to learn that the laboratory concerned had tested no oils for 18 months! Ahem.

The better quality growers/distillers supply GLC traces of the principal chemotypes of their oils and with their physical properties and their aroma it is possible to be assured as to the oils quality.

About Carriers


Anything that ‘carries’ an essential oil into the body is known in aromatherapy as a carrier. The carrier in inhalation is air; in the bath it is the water; in massage it is the vegetable oil. If essential oils are added to a lotion or cream for self-application, then each of these is acting as a carrier. Vegetable oils, macerated oil and white lotion are the most common carriers for application to the body.
アロマセラピーの分野では、精油を「運ぶ」ものは全てキャリアとして知られています。吸入法では空気が、入浴では水が、マッサージでは植物油がそれに当たります。もし精油が、自分自身に使用するため、ローションまたはクリーム加えられれば、これらがキャリアとして機能すると言えます。 植物油、マセレイティド・オイルおよびホワイト・ローションは、体へ適用するにの最も一般的なキャリアです。

Aromatherapy carrier oils, unlike those used in cooking, have not been heated, refined, bleached or re-coloured, all of which destroy the natural properties. These cold pressed, unrefined oils are best, as they retain all their natural, vital and beneficial properties which, although not as powerful as those of the essential oils, are still desirable in a treatment. A whole body massage will require about 10-15ml of carri er oil and only 4-6 drops of essential oil.

A non-greasy lotion is invaluable for self-application, where an oil may be unnecessarily greasy. A lotion is absorbed immediately, leaving grease-free, smooth skin.
It is vital that the carrier is of an equally high quality as the essential oils which you use, as it makes up at least 95% of the mix and can dramatically affect the quality of the blend.

Derived from the distillation process hydrolats have been found to be of use in skin care.  Rose Hydrolat in particular serves as a gentle natural toner for facial care.

Hydrosols are steam distilled from plant matter.  Hydrosols are a legitimate product and have been used clinically and for beauty in aromatherapy for centuries. True hydrosols are made during the process of extracting essential oils from a plant. A plant, like lavender, is put into a distillation unit, steam is pumped through the plant matter, which extracts various components from within the plant, and then the steam cools back into a liquid state.


At that point, the water insoluble components rise to the surface of the captured water and are separated out—these are the essential oils.
The water that is left over holds some water soluble components of the plant—this is the hydrosol also referred to as hydrolat.
Care must be taken not to confuse these with floral waters obtained by adding essential oils to water.  These do not contain the water soluble elements from the plant matter.

Derived from the distillation process hydrolats have been found to be of use in skin care.  Rose Hydrolat in particular serves as a gentle natural toner for facial care.


Melissa hydrolat
Melissa can be used to lift despondency and despair.  It can be used on its own or in a mix as a skin clarifier.

Lavender hydrolat
Lavender makes this hydrolat ideal for all skin types.  Its gentle nature also makes it safe to use on children, calming them and temper tantrums.  Lavender hydrolat also makes a refreshing room spray.

Rose hydrolat
Added to the bath, rose hydrolat aids relaxation.  Its mildly antiseptic and cooling properties make it useful for many applications.  In fact, if rose is used in conjunction with the hydrolats of lavender and chamomile, you will be able to promote good general health.

Neroli hydrolat
Being astringent makes neroli the ideal treatment for delicate, sensitive and oily skins.  Itcan be used as a toner.

Chamomile Roman hydrolat
One of the best all-round hydrolats.  Its gentle nature makes it ideal for use on young babies and children.  Chamomile Roman’s astringent properties make it the best all-in-one make-up remover, cleanser and toner.

Mums to be can make use of aromatherapy but great care shouldbe taken because of the hormone mimicking effects of the oils.  Take only as directed by your Doctor or Midwife.  
Chamomile Cream eases the irritation which leads to dry skin.  Similarly Chamomile Eyedrops are good for tired or irritated eyes.  With all the worries of pregnancy a facial treat like Essentia Pretty Serum can be of value.  Mandarin Oil is excellent for stretch marks.  Essential oils should always be diluted for example in Sweet Almond Oil.  
Jojoba Oil.  The most natural carrier oil of oil whose chemistry is very similar to the natural body oil Sebum produced by the body is jojoba oil.  Shirley Price Aromatherapy Ltd is a distributor for Eco Oils of Argentina the worlds largest producers of Jojoba assuring you of a fresh and true supply.

When using essential oils on babies and children, it is always best to dilute 1-2 drops of pure essential oils with 1/2-1 tsp. vegetable oil. If the oils are used in a bath, always use a bath gel base as a dispersing agent for the oils or mix them with a little milk.  This is a good idea as putting essential oil under the hot tap can dissipate much of the fragrance that makes bath and bed time an eagerly anticipated delight.

Keep essential oils out of children's reach. If an oil is ever ingested, give the child an oil-soluble liquid such as milk, cream, or half & half. Then call your local poison control center or seek emergency medical attention. A few drops of pure essential oil shouldn't be life-threatening, but for your protection, it is best to take these precautions.  The droppers in essential oil bottles means accidents are rare but every precaution must be taken.  Its best to store essential oils in a box or fabric bag well out of the reach of c children'からのたくわえの精油; sの範囲。 オイルが摂取されたら、子供にミルク、クリーム、または半分の&のようなoil-soluble液体を与えなさい; 半分。 それからあなたのローカル毒コントロールセンターを呼ぶか、または緊急の治療を追求しなさい。 純粋な精油shouldn'の少数の低下; tは生命にかかわるが、あなたの保護のため、これらの注意を取ることが最善である。 精油のびんの平均の事故の点滴器はまれであるしかしあらゆる注意は取られなければならない。 その最もよく精油を子供の手の届かないところに箱または生地袋でよく貯えるためhildren.

How does aromatherapy work?

Aromatherapy works in two ways:
Essential oils vaporise readily and can therefore enter the body via the air through the nose and bronchial passages. Adding a few drops of essential oil to a tissue, a bowl of hot water, or to a warm bath, releases the vapour, which is then inhaled. During massage there is also a degree of inhalation as the oils vaporise due to body heat.
aromatherapy仕事はいかにか。 Aromatherapy2つの方法ではたらく: 吸入従って精油は容易に蒸発し、空気によって鼻および気管支道を通してボディを書き入れることができる。 ティッシュ、熱湯のボール、または暖かい浴室へ精油の少数の低下を加えることは、吸い込まれる蒸気を解放する。 マッサージの間にオイルがボディ熱が原因で蒸発させるのでまた吸入のある程度がある。
An aroma can have an immediate effect on the mind and the body. Tiny hair-like extensions of the brain at the top of the nose detect all aromas, which are rapidly interpreted by the brain. The faster the stimuli can reach the brain, the faster the effect will take place.
香りは心およびボディに対する即時の効果をもたらすことができる。 鼻の上の頭脳の小さいhair-like延長は頭脳によって急速に解釈されるすべての香りを検出する。 より速く刺激が頭脳に達することができればより速く効果は起こる。
Essential oils are absorbed through the skin directly to the bloodstream via carriers such as water (baths, compresses), vegetable oils, lotions and creams (application and massage).
Traditionally in this country essential oils have been used hand-in-hand with massage, which utilises another important sense – that of touch. People who are not well, or are stressed, benefit simply by the touch of another human being. Old people and people suffering from diseases such as cancer can benefit enormously from the power of touch; in fact we all can. Touch in itself brings us closer to others and immediately helps us to de-stress, making an aromatherapy treatment a double benefit to a person’s health.
精油は水(浴室、圧縮機械)、植物油、ローションのようなキャリアで血流への皮を通して直接吸収され、クリーム状になる(適用およびマッサージ) 従来この国で精油は別の重要な感覚を-接触のそれ利用するマッサージと手に手をとって使用された。 元気でいない人々はもう一人の人間の接触によって、または、利点単に重点を置かれる。 癌のような病気に苦しんでいる高齢者達および人々は接触の力から非常に寄与できる; 実際は私達はすべてできる。 それ自体連れて来、他に近い方の私達をすぐに助けde重点を置き触れ、aromatherapy処置に二重利点を人の健康にする。
Although the effects of using a single essential oil are beneficial to the health, the synergistic effect of using 2-4 essential oils adds considerably to the improvement shown; it also ensures that an oil needing care in use is not over used, as it is proportion will automatically be substantially reduced.

単一の精油を使用する効果が健康に有利であるが、2-4精油を使用する相助効果は示されている改善にかなり加える; あるので使用中の心配を必要とするオイルが使用されないことをまた保障する、割合は自動的に大幅に減る。 このガイド50pのコピーのあらゆる販売はRNIBに寄付される。 マッサージはアジアの多くのブラインドに確保される専門職である。
