Description

Aromatherapy, or essential oils therapy, is the therapeutic use of aroma-producing oils (essential oils) extracted from plants. Essential oils are extracted from a plant's flowers, leaves, stalks, bark, rind, or roots. The oils are mixed with another substance (such as oil, alcohol, or lotion) and then applied to the skin, sprayed in the air, or inhaled. The oils can also be massaged into the skin or poured into bath water. Aromatherapy originated in Europe and has been practiced there since the 1920s

The philosophy behind aromatherapy is that specific plant oils produce fragrances that either stimulate or relax the body. Practitioners of aromatherapy believe that fragrances in the oils stimulate nerves in the nose. Impulses are then sent to the part of the brain that controls memory and emotion. Depending on the type of oil, the result on the body may be calming or stimulating. The oils are thought to interact with the body's hormones and enzymes to cause changes in blood pressure, pulse, and other body functions. Another theory suggests that the fragrance of certain oils may stimulate the body's glands to produce pain-fighting substances

Practitioners of aromatherapy have used essential oils to treat a wide range of physical and mental conditions, including burns, infections, depression, insomnia, and high blood pressure. However, so far there is little scientific evidence to support claims that aromatherapy effectively prevents or cures illness.
