Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.

A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum. It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.

There are a wide number of essential oils available, each with unique healing properties.

When inhaled, the aroma from essential oils is believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, allowing the oils to travel through the bloodstream to promote healing.
