    medicinal plants that were produced in an ecologically sustainable manner Conservation Our raw materials are obtained from sustainable sources and we support organisations that are working towards replenishing species that are endangered It is our belief that supporting these organisations together with small agricultural cooperatives is crucial in helping to replenish those areas where resources are dwindling Recently we stopped supplying Rosewood essential oil because despite the fact that we purchased it from a sustainable source we have fears that supply is likely to outstrip the ability to supply Although new saplings are being planted regularly it will be many years before these rosewood trees will be mature enough to yield any oil Those of you who have been our customers for many years will recall that we did this once before in 1990 as part of an effort to relieve pressure on supplies Only when a sustainable source became available many years later did we re introduce it into our range We are once again withdrawing it until such time that we are convinced that the oil can be produced in a sustainable manner Replanting scheme Quinessence has paid for sapling rosewood trees to be planted in the rainforests of Brazil under the recent scheme launched by the Forest Association for the Conservation of the Amazon Ecosystem UFAM This tree planting programme is working in an agroforesty system to provide the necessary care for the seedlings during the first critical years of development To contribute towards easing the pressure on Rosewood oil we are encouraging everyone to switch to Linaloe wood which is remarkably similar in chemistry to Rosewood oil and almost identical in aroma After evaluating the therapeutic qualities of this oil on her clients for over 5 years our senior clinical aromatherapist is convinced that it is indistinguishable in use to rosewood If aromatherapists and home enthusiasts switched now to using Linaloe wood oil it would be one more small but positive step in taking the pressure off the supply and demand loop that the aromatherapy industry is currently stuck in Recycling Wherever possible at Quinessence all reusable materials are recycled newspapers junk mail and processed documentation are all shredded and used as packaging material for our customers orders We also recycle the packaging that we receive in the deliveries from our suppliers since this material would be wasted otherwise If you enjoyed this article please click the Like button and help spread the word Next Industry awards Quinessence Aromatherapy Change my location United Kingdom Europe Rest of World Help Centre Your account Checkout Basket Shop online Online Shop About Us Company Information Testimonials Sue Charles Geoff Lyth Ethical Issues Animal Testing Industry Awards Our Location Trade Memberships Let s connect Join us on Facebook for free tips advice 28 799 Followers Follow us on Twitter for breaking news 6 202 Followers Check out our Blog for articles essential oil profiles more Search this site Products Information FREE Newsletter Subscribe now to receive expert Articles Essential oil

    to over produce cortisol and adrenalin which are hormones produced by the adrenal glands These two hormones are normally secreted to produce a burst of energy as part of the fight or flight response and of course this response is an essential tool for survival Prolonged periods of emotional and psychological pressures however means that the over production of these hormones can begin to weaken the integrity of the immune system because they reduce the level of T helper cells and inhibit the production of natural killer cells Evidence based results Research is continually re affirming the efficacy of aromatherapy treatments and the results are now very hard to dismiss A recent study in the USA has confirmed the long held belief of aromatherapists that Jasmine is a powerful relaxant and an effective aid to restful sleep The researcher explained that the purpose of the study was specifically to investigate some of the beliefs behind aromatherapy Dr Bryan Raudenbush and his colleagues at the Wheeling Jesuit University in Wheeling West Virginia found that people who slept in rooms fragranced with Jasmine appeared to sleep more peacefully and reported higher afternoon alertness than when spending the night in a Lavender scented room or one with no added fragrance at all Similar research around the world has proven time and again the wide range of benefits that can be received from the multifaceted art of aromatherapy Cruelty free therapy This natural form of complementary therapy dating back to ancient times is being warmly embraced by today s environmentally conscious and caring society in which people are increasingly unwilling to accept the cruelty inflicted on animals in the unnecessary testing of drugs and beauty products The essential oils used within aromatherapy have been tried and tested on humans for thousands of years and with great success Therefore when used correctly we can be absolutely sure of their safety and efficacy without the need to test them further on animals Copyright Quinessence Aromatherapy Ltd 2004 Written by Geoff Lyth If you enjoyed this article please click the Like button and help spread the word Next How aromatherapy works Quinessence Aromatherapy Change my location United Kingdom Europe Rest of World Help Centre Your account Checkout Basket Shop online Online Shop About Aromatherapy What is aromatherapy How aromatherapy works History of Aromatherapy Essential Oils FAQ s Essential oils Absolutes Carrier Oils Hydrosols Methods of Use Safety Guidelines Glossary of Terms Aromatherapy Articles Newsletter Let s connect Join us on Facebook for free tips advice 28 799 Followers Follow us on Twitter for breaking news 6 202 Followers Check out our Blog for articles essential oil profiles more Search this site Products Information FREE Newsletter Subscribe now to receive expert Articles Essential oil profiles Skincare tips Recipes and much more Plus you will have exclusive access to our hugely discounted Special Offers Free Gifts and Prize Draws We respect your privacy and hate spam as much as you do We will never sell rent or share your
