Aromatherapy is the use of volatile plant oils for preventative care, healing and general physical well-being. Although the term aromatherapy was not used until the 20th Century, the foundations of Aromatherapy date back thousands of years and can be traced back through to ancient Roman, Greek, Egyptian and Chinese cultures.
It is a non-invasive form of therapy and can be used for a wide range of health problems such as anxiety, stress, insomnia, anxiety and stress related conditions. Many people find it useful in treating arthritic and rheumatoid pain, headaches, and pre-menstrual tension. It is sometimes available in maternity services and is widely used in palliative and cancer care in hospitals and hospices. Some people also use aromatherapy just for its relaxation effects.


Aromatherapy is generally applied in one of three ways:

  • Aerial diffusion - the oils evaporate into the air. The aim is to give the air a specific fragrance or to disinfect it.
  • Direct inhalation - the person breaths in the evaporating oils and is commonly used for respiratory disinfection, decongestion, as well as for psychological benefits.
  • Topical applications - applied directly onto the skin. Commonly used for massage, baths, and therapeutic skin care.

Aromatherapy can be used for.
Anxiety, Stress, Insomnia, Muscular aches, Body aches, Headaches, Circulation problems, Digestive problems, Menstrual problems, Menopausal problems, Depression
(In France, and much of Western Europe aromatherapy is incorporated into mainstream medicine as an antiseptic, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial, much more so than in the UK, USA or Canada.)
