The Aromatouch technique is a simple but powerful way to provide every individual with an essential oils experience.
Today, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to learn how to master this technique. I came away from today’s course completely embraced with this essential oil experience. Let’s begin explaining the purpose of Aromatouch.
There are a number of of different factors that we have to endure in our daily life which can have a direct impact on our overall well-being.
When dealing with a child who needs individual care, a friend frustrated with school, a spouse overwhelmed with stress from work, or a teenager worn out from studying or sports practice. The application of Aromatouch can help every one of these issues.
There are specific oils which are used in conjunction with human touch, that provide multiple benefits to the person receiving the aromatouch, as well as the person performing the technique.
No matter what situation arises, know that you can feel empowered, knowing that there, will always be the aromatouch technique to offer.
THE ROLE OF AROMA
Many of our likes and dislikes of different smells and aromas, will have come from the very experiences we have attached to them. There is convincing evidence that pleasant aromas can remarkably improve our overall mood and sense of well-being.
Therefore, each essential oil in the Aromatouch technique was purposefully selected for its individual aromatic properties, and for their powerful aromatic properties when combined. The overall experience of the aromas of aromatouch are soothing, light and pleasant to the senses.
THE ROLE OF TOUCH
Whether touch comes from a handshake or hug, all physical touch holds very different meanings. Even when we share the oils, there is a difference between rubbing the oils on someone’s forearm and taking the time by rubbing them on someone’s back, it really does have bearing on the overall well-being of the individual throughout the technique. Physical touch is as important to aromatouch as the aroma itself, because of the amazing healing benefits it provides. While the very essence of the technique is to apply the oils and provide the recipient with an essential oil experience, it is also about connecting with another person on an emotional level. These connections made form feelings of trust and assist the recipient to relax. It is the essential way of promoting family relationships and wellness.
I want to give you a very small example of this….
Ben our instructor has 5 children, 2 sets of twin boys and a girl. Ben and his wife have been using aromatouch with their family for sometime now. One evening, Ben went upstairs to find one of his older children giving his younger sister an aromatouch experience. This is a beautiful example, how relationships and bonds are formed between family members. And how the older brother, wanted to share such an experience of touch with his younger sister. This story, brought a tear to my eye, and reinforced just how powerful these essential oils can really be.
What have I learnt from today, I’ve learnt how powerful touch can be, and how powerful the effects and benefits of these oils can be.
Now I want to tell you my own personal story. I’m a single mum of 2 boys, they are 27 and 17 respectively. I’ve been on my own for a number of years and my youngest boy stopped hugging me about 6-7 years ago. Now, when you’re not in a relationship with anyone, the one most important thing you miss, is that physical human touch. Whether it be a hug or merely holding hands. So you can imagine my disappointment when this rather tactile boy, up and and till that point, completely stopped any form of physical contact with myself.
I sat in that classroom today, and felt my eyes welling with tears. Maybe, I have an opportunity to reconnect with my child, and him with me. How do you think I’ve introduced him to the idea of aromatouch? I told him, I require someone to practice on, to improve my technique. You can imagine what his first reaction was, “hell no, you’re not practicing on me” I explained we only need to put aside 45 minutes one evening and you only need to show me your back and feet. (Now, he already uses the oils aromatically and also from a rollerball for a skin condition he’s had since birth.) But, after explaining again the reasons why I want to do this, so far he hadn’t said no again.
Tomorrow evening, I’m going to ask if I can do the aromatouch on him, and you know, I’m quite excited at the thought of allowing me to touch him. I’m hoping that the experience he has, will reconnect our physical bond, because we are very much still connected on an emotional level.

These simple words totally resonate with me how I feel about the oils I share.
