Aromatherapy is a part of a holistic, natural approach to body, mind and spirit health. It involves the use of essential oils, in a controlled way. Aromatherapy with essential oils can provide drug-free healing and stress relief through massage/body oil, lotions and face creams, baths, steams and spritzers. Essential oils may provide an alternative If you’re worried about the safety and side effects of pharmaceuticals and household or environmental chemicals.
Essential oils are not cooking oils like olive oil, canola oil, or sesame oil. These are called fixed or base oils. They are different from essential oils. They feel oily to the touch and when they are exposed to air, they become rancid and do not evaporate. By contrast, essential oils are not oils, they do not leave an oily residue, they do not become rancid, and they evaporate readily. Essential oils are a volatile substance obtained from botanical raw material by either steam distillation or by cold pressing.
