The Healing Benefits of Aromatherapy: How to use Essential Oils to Improve your Health

Aromatherapy is an ancient practice that utilizes the fragrant essential oils from plants to enhance physical and emotional well-being. These essential oils are extracted from flowers, leaves, stems, roots, and other parts of plants through distillation or cold pressing methods.

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their medicinal and therapeutic properties. When inhaled or applied to the skin, they can stimulate the olfactory system and trigger changes in the brain and body. Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways to improve physical and mental well-being. The most common methods include aromatic diffusion through using an essential oils diffuser, topical application after diluting the oil with a carrier oil, inhalation directly from the bottle, adding a few drops to bathwater, and incorporating into aromatherapy massage
