To get you on your way to knowing all about essential oil benefits, we need to start with the aromatherapy basics.

Aromatherapy is defined as the use of the volatile plant oils extracted from the flowers, leaves, bark, stems and other plant parts for the purpose of overall well being.

Aromatherapy has become a popular process to help individuals with psychological and physical well being. Aromatherapy is designed to treat the whole body and mind, not just the symptom by increasing your body’s natural ability to heal and maintain itself. The use of essential oils can also allow you to take a preventative approach to your overall well being. Along with the use of essential oils, aromatherapy also combines the use of other various natural ingredients such as hydrosols, milk powders, sea salts, clay, and herbs.

Essential oils are known to ease pain and headaches. Essential oils can also assist in insomnia, rashes, stress relief, anxiety and depression. There are numerous ways that aromatherapy and essential oils can help you. When applied to your skin, the oils are absorbed through your hair follicles and sweat glands. When inhaled the molecules of the essential oils are absorbed into your bloodstream.
