Aromatherapy is the proactive use of essential oils applied to the body for physical and psychological well-being.
Aromatherapy is now accepted as a form or alternative medicine. Aromatherapy is not a magic bullet and like other natural therapies takes time, understanding and training on the part of the client.
Aromatherapy can be used for medicinal purposes as well as in the bathtub, footbath, for massage, cleaning products and clean the air as in diffusers and spray aerosols. Many people are using essential oils for many minor health issues.
Essential oils have a complexity to them as they usually contain alcohols, esters, ketones, aldehydes and terpenes. The essences are usually prepared by distillation. The Citrus fruits are usually hand or mechanically pressed.
Clinical Aromatherapy is the controlled use of essential oils for specific outcomes. The choice of essential oil is often based on the chemistry of the essential oil, as the chemistry will indicate the properties of the essential oil and is the safest method of use. Each essential oil may have more than one single property – anti-inflammatory, calming or stimulating, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal etc.
