Aromatherapy is an alternative form of medicine that uses essential oils or volatile liquid from plant materials and certain aromatic compounds. Essential oils have a proven effect on an individual’s health and or mood.

There are four different modes of application for aromatherapy essential oils:

  • Aerial diffusion for aerial disinfection or environmental fragrancing through the use of a diffuser
  • Direct inhalation for respiratory decongestion, expectoration, and disinfection is also administered through the use of a diffuser or simply with a bowl of steaming hot water with a few drops of essential oil
  • Topical applications for body compresses, baths, and therapeutic care for the skin or general massage
  • Oral applications for congestion and parasites

The last two methods of application are self explanatory but please look through the blog archives for recipes and further explanation for the last two methods.
