aromatherapy-essential-oils

Aromatherapy is a type of alternative medicine that uses essential oils and other aromatic plant compounds which are aimed at improving a person’s health or mood.

The essential oils used in aromatherapy have a different composition compared to other herbal products because the distillation used in aromatherapy recovers the lighter phytol molecules.

Aromatherapy is a widely used term for a range of traditional therapies that use essential oils. These may include massage oils, or any topical application that uses pure, essential oils – the essential oils are either absorbed through the skin or inhaled.

Application of aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is generally applied in one of three ways:

    • Aerial diffusion – the oils evaporate into the air. The aim is to give the air a specific fragrance or to disinfect it.
    • Direct inhalation – the person breaths the evaporating oils straight in. This is commonly used for respiratory disinfection, decongestion, as well as for psychological benefits.
  • Topical applications – applied onto the skin. Commonly used for massage, baths, and therapeutic skin care.

    • If you have an allergy or allergies

Aromatherapy does sometimes have side effects. However, they tend to be very mild and do not last long. These include nausea, headaches, and some allergic reactions.

Skin sensitivity to sunlight – essential oils derived from citrus may make the skin more sensitive to ultraviolet light, making the person more susceptible to sunburn.

Some oils may change the effectiveness of conventional medicines – if you are not sure, check with a qualified pharmacist or doctor.
