Yin & Yang Principles
In essence, Yin/Yang are relative terms used to describe everything in your life. Everything in nature, around you and in you, has these energies. Nothing is purely yin or yang, but contains both energies in varying amounts. You cannot have one without the other. Neither one is better, with both being needed for balance and wellbeing. The basic idea of yin/yang is that the only constant in your world is continual change. In other words, nothing remains the same; no disease, no condition, no emotion, absolutely everything is continually changing. In the same way, yin/yang are in a natural constant state of change, complimenting and presenting opposite forces to each other.
Yin energy maintains and endures, it is nourishing and supports growth and development. Reflection and stillness create yin energy. Yang energy is creative and generating, it develops and expands; it is aggressive, dynamic and full of movement. The power of yang energy is wha drives creativity. Passion and fire fuel yang energy. The yin/yang energies within your body and within each organ need to be balances for your body to function in harmony. If there is an imbalance with your body's systems, with either too much yin or too much yang, you will experience disharmony or disease. To achieve wellness, you need to balance work (yang) and play (yin); and indulgence (yin) and discipline (yang).

Aromatherapy is a routine of utilising the fragrant oils which have been refined from plan roots to cause a feeling or wellbeing both physically and mentally. Aromatherapy takes advantage of the basic human instinct to treat disease, provide wellbeing, skincare, and relaxation. It can be seen as the therapeutic use of essential oils for prevention and or auxiliary and positive treatment of physical, psychological and energetic problems. The true aromatherapy consists of the therapeutic application of 100% essential oils in baths, massages, compress, diffusions, internal use, etc.
According to "The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils", the favoured technique of aromatherapists is in the massage, because it ensures that the oils are absorbed through the skin and into the blood stream. Aromatherapy emphasises the importance or rubbing the oil into the skin. Aromatherapy is known for bringing wellbeing and stress relief to people, but this is only one of the possible benefits. This therapy can affect the body chemistry, the emotions and attitudes, and has the ability to help the body function optimally. Some other activities with closely related effects on the human body are Yoga and Tai Chi.
Therapeutical uses for aromatherapy include reduction of pain, inflammations and spasms, stimulation of the immune system, hormone production and blood circulation, skin infections, healing of respiratory and digestive problems, emotional problems, like depression and panic.
