aromatherapy: aro·ma·ther·a·py - noun - The use of volatile plant oils, including essential oils, for psychological and physical well-being.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is the use of pure essential and absolute oils. It is a branch of herbology and the study of "aromatherapy" may best be considered in these four areas of application:

Aesthetic - the effects essential oils have on the beauty of skin
and hair.

Psycho - the effects aromas have on our moods and feeling; also
known as aromachology.

Holistic - the integration of the divine into the body, mind and

Medical - the effects essential oils have in enhancing and
maintaining a state of homeostasis.
