What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy – something that’s used alongside medical treatment. Plant oils have been used as therapy for thousands of years. Essential oils are made from essences found in the flowers, leaves, roots, peel, resin, seeds and bark of some plants (e.g. chamomile, lavender, frankincense). You can absorb some essential oils through your skin. Some have an effect on you through your sense of smell and through breathing them in. Here are just some of the ways essential oils are used: diluted and massaged into skin, added to your warm bath water, added to vapour to inhale, added to neutral moisturiser or face and body cream.
