Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for therapeutic benefit. Essential oils can make a positive impact on your health and well being as long as you use them in a safe way.

The oils are basically plant extracts. Steam or distillation of the herbs and plants are how the essential oils are created and how the scent is formed.

Essential oils can be absorbed by the skin or through inhalation. In the form of massage the therapist might add a couple drops into the cream or massage oil being used during treatment.

Most times essential oils are used to alleviate conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
