Aromatherapy is the use of various essential oils for psychological and physical well-being. An aromatherapy massage is a great way to reap the benefits of topical application of essential oils along with the soothing therapeutic benefits of massage.

In addition to about 90 existing essential oils, aromatherapy encourages the use of other complementary natural ingredients including cold pressed vegetable oils, jojoba (a liquid wax), hydrosols, herbs, milk powders, sea salts, clays and muds.However fragrance oils and other artificial oils cannot provide the therapeutic effect provided by a session of aromatherapy. Not only does the aroma of the natural essential oil stimulate the brain to trigger a reaction, but when inhaled into the lungs, the natural constituents (naturally occurring chemicals) can supply therapeutic benefit or can give you the “feel-good” effect.

Some of the other benefits of aromatherapy include the following:

  1. 1)Aromatherapy stimulates the immune system and strengthens resistance to disease and helps to combat infections. The stimulation of touch also releases the brain chemicals known as endorphins that act as body’s own painkillers enabling the body cure itself. This helps the body’s own healing process to begin.
