What Is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the practice of using extracted oils from roots, seeds, plants, flowers, wood or bark. Their aromatic fragrance can stimulate the part of the brain that controls relaxation, emotion, motivation and spiritual influence.

How to Use Essential Oils:

Oils can be used in a variety of ways. Some oils, like rose and patchouli, can be applied directly to the skin, other oils such as peppermint or sandalwood should be diluted into carrier oils (jojoba, almond or avocado oil) before applying to the skin. They can be inhaled, added to bath water, body lotions, shampoos, even cleaning detergents.
