Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that involves the use of essential oils, which are concentrated plant extracts, to promote physical and emotional well-being. Essential oils are derived from various parts of plants such as flowers, leaves, bark, and roots, and each has its unique composition of natural chemicals. Aromatherapy practitioners believe that the use of essential oils can have a therapeutic effect on the body and mind by influencing the limbic system, which is the part of the brain responsible for emotions and memories.
Aromatherapy is used to help with a wide range of conditions, including stress, anxiety, pain, and insomnia. It is also used to promote relaxation and overall well-being, and to enhance the effects of other forms of therapy. There are many essential oils available, each with different properties and uses, and a therapist will help to find the appropriate blend and method of use for the individual.
