Aromatherapy is the use and treatment based around natural oils and is a holistic therapy; looking at the person as a 'whole' taking into consideration the causes & symptoms of their ailments using the pharmacological, physical & aromatic effects of essential oils for relaxation & the improvement of physical & emotional well-being. It is used to maintain good health and homeostasis in the body.

These oils have tiny molecules and are easily absorbed into the skin when applied with a carrier oil in the form or massage. Each essential oil has certain properties & effects on the mind, body & skin which can certainly contribute to helping symptoms a client may present.

However they are extremely concentrated and potentially toxic and should therefore only be diluted and not applied directly to the skin without the use of a carrier oil or taken internally.
