Aromatherapy is the use of aromatic plant extracts and essential oils for healing and cosmetic purposes.

People have always found many plants around them that can heal — medicines out of the earth. 

Essential oils are extracted from certain trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, roots, fruits, and flowers.

You can find essential oils in many products, including food flavouring, cosmetics, cleaning products, and even insect repellents. 

They contain hundreds of components, and as a result, they offer antimicrobial, antiviral, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. In addition, some can offer some effects, such as relieving stress, treating depression, and aiding with insomnia. 

Essential oils are holistic.

Holistic (or Wholistic) treatment refers to the whole person, taking mental and social factors into account, rather than just the symptoms of a disease.

Essential oils affect the mind, body, and spirit.

Making people feel better properties of certain essential oils is one of the reasons they are found in perfumes. 

Throughout history, aromatics (like frankincense and myrrh) have always been used in spiritual practice.

How to use essential oils?

There are various methods to use essential oils for therapeutic purposes, including topical use, such as creams and oils, or inhalation, for example, when using an oil diffuser. Other methods are oral ingestion and internal use like peppermint oil in toothpaste or stomach digestive aid capsules. Essential oils are absorbed very easily and quickly because of their small molecular size.
