NYR Organic began in 1981 as Neal’s Yard Remedies, a small apothecary in central London driven by a passionate belief that health and beauty should be more naturally derived. The philosophy is simple – to educate and empower people to live more healthfully through the power of nature. Sourcing sustainably, using only wild, organic and natural ingredients avoids contaminating the environment or your skin – our body’s largest organ and protective barrier. The formulations benefit mind, body and spirit, using potent herbs, oils and extracts that all meet an incredibly high standard of efficacy and quality.
Aromatherapy is a hands-on approach to applying essential oils for stress reduction and other psychological benefits as well as to enhance overall health and wellness. Some common uses for essential oils include reducing stress/anxiety, headaches, insomnia, musculoskeletal problems, hormonal problems, arthritis, skin conditions, chronic fatigue and sinus problems.
WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are components within a plant that protect, defend, heal and attract pollinators. They are the distilled or expressed aromatic extracts from plants. Each essential oil has dozens of chemical components working together to provide therapeutic properties.
Essential oils are powerful and should be used with caution - always dilute your oils with a carrier oil/lotion and use sparingly in diffusers (1-5 drops) in a well ventilated room. Refer to the Essential Oils Guide & Blending Table to help you select the best products for your needs.
