What Is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy uses natural plant extracts, such as essential oils, hydrosols, and carrier oils, in a variety of ways to heal the body, mind and spirit.

It is the promotion and harmonization of emotional, physical and spiritual health through the application of these extracts.

Aromatherapy is described as both an art and a science because it takes the knowledge of the scientific aspects of the plants and oils and combines it with the art of producing a beneficial blend.

Basically, a successful aromatherapy blend is a synergy of science, art, and the practitioner's knowledge of both, and how to apply it.
