You must have already heard or read the term “Aromatherapy”, somewhere, somehow but most probably you have not paid much attention to it in the belief that it is just another type of super hyped herbal thing, new in the market. However, it is time to change your views & to pay full attention to know why the beauty as well as the holistic healing world is going head-over-heels for Aromatherapy.
Aromatherapy is a form of complementary therapy that has been used for aesthetics & healing in more or less all the advanced ancient cultures. Starting from the Egyptians, Chinese to the ancient Indian civilizations, Aromatherapy has always been a part of the natural healing & rejuvenation processes.
The term “Aromatherapy” literally means the use of aroma or essence as a therapy. It involves the use of aromatic essential oils for aesthetic & therapeutic purposes promoting an overall wellbeing. Aromatherapy can be strictly distinguished from Ayurveda & Herbalism as it involves only the use of essential oils or the “life oils” of aromatic plants extracted from the flowers, leaves, bark & other parts of the plant.
