As said earlier somewhere my interest in alternative medicine and holistic health lead me to aromatherapy. I still do not know the physical benefits of this therapy but the psychological benefit it gives is immense. It is my belief that the success of aromatherapy is mostly subjective since it uses your sense of smell to relax you. This sense of smell is purely subjective. The other part of aromatherapy that is the use of essential oils I belief is objective and everyone can get the same results from this therapy unless you have an adverse reaction for some of the oils used for this purpose.
These therapeutic essential oils used in aromatherapy are derived from plants. Now a days aromatherapy is also used as strictly as a form of therapy by stimulating and relaxing your mind and body through smell. There are aromatherapy candles, aromatherapy soaps, and other products available in the market which gives a special aroma to fill in your house promoting holistic health.
As said benefits of aromatherapy is basically subjective, you have to take care in selecting the products of aroma therapy depending on your likings because the basic methods of aromatherapy are of aerial diffusion by dispensing a desired fragrance which also doubles as air disinfection. Aromatherapy oils which are used topically for traditional massages, used in water used for baths, and also for warm compresses.
Aromatherapy works well in holistic health care because of the effects of this therapy on both your mind and body. This is known to act on your central nervous system giving stress relief and relaxation and lifting your spirits.
