Aromatherapy and Essential Oils

What practices make aromatherapy effective

Aromatherapy Treatment can be administered via massage, bathing, inhalation, compresses, tonics, creams, oils & lotions, flower waters, mouthwashes and gargles. Some oils can also be applied neat or used internally when under the supervision of a trained practitioner, although this method is restricted to France where Aromatherapists are also doctors. Inhalation is thought to be the most direct and rapid means of treatment as the molecules of the volatile oil act directly on the olfactory organs and are immediately perceived by the brain. Application and bathing are the other two most popular methods as the oils permeate the skin pores and hair follicles and readily pass into the capillaries, which transport them around the body.
