What is Aromatherapy and How It Works

Aromatherapy is the clinical therapeutic use of essential oils. Essential oils are concentrated liquids that contain aromatic compounds from plants, including flowers, leaves, fruits, stems, roots, and bark. They can be absorbed through inhalation, contact with the skin, and ingestion. These essential oils enter the body via the bloodstream and can have a positive and beneficial effect on our body, systems, and tissues.

Aromatherapy, with its pleasant fragrance, is not only relaxing but also offers a wide range of benefits for various physical ailments such as fatigue, tired eyes, colds, stiffness, and muscle pain, as well as mental ailments like mood swings and insomnia, and hormonal issues such as pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS).

Aromatherapy involves blending a number of essential oils together to create a synergistic whole, which is better than one essential oil alone, as all the chemical constituents band together to create a more effective therapeutic approach that is targeted holistically. Aromatherapists mix these essential oils to be both therapeutic and sweet-smelling.
