Reducing anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, eliminates headaches, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, improves blood circulation and speed up the healing process of the body, these are some of the benefits of aromatherapy. 👍 Aromatherapy is a kind of an alternative medicine treatment that can be aromatically inhaled by the patients that involves the use of volatile plant materials also known as essential oils extracted from flowers and plants. It also improves a good mood, some people does this as their supplemental medicine. In the 11th century when the steam distillation was made possible to extract an essential oil from the plant materials it made aromatherapy even more popular. Since then, aromatherapy offered a wide range of uses for health and wellness and now cultures all around the world has recognize aromatherapy. This therapy is being practice in India, France, England,  and the United States it can also found in a lot of countries.

The range of possibilities is almost endless using essential oils. Blending essential oils is such an important study for alternative healers. However, it’s important to first consult a trained and licensed aromatherapists, as some essential oils can trigger skin allergy and it can be toxic if mixed improperly. Aromatherapy essential oils are diluted in a water bath or massage oil to make the effect less strong. Because if you use a strong concentration of essential oils it can also lead into a wide range of negative side effects. There are a huge numbers of combinations that have been tested but not all of them are approved by a normal doctor since this is a alternative treatment. You should pay attention very well in your body whenever you are using/doing aromatherapy as a therapeutic solution, carefully notice your skin reaction as it might develop some skin allergy.

Aroma and/or scents are powerful to our senses and emotion, it can also elevate our state of mind and influence our behavior.

This is vital for people like me who has been stressed a lot lately.xD 😂 As for me, i’m using a sandalwood items such as body butter, lip balm and a hand cream.
