Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes. Essential oils are extracted from flowers, herbs, leaves, roots, bark, seeds, fruits, nuts, resins, barks, wood, and other plant materials. They contain volatile compounds that affect our mood, behavior, and physical well being.
You can use it as a room freshener or air purifier.
It has been used for centuries by people who believe that aromas have healing properties. In fact, there are more than 3,000 different essential oils available today. These oils come from plants and trees and are made up of hundreds of chemical compounds called terpenes. Terpenes are responsible for giving essential oils their distinctive smell.
