Aromatherapy: An Ancient Medicine
Aromatherapy is used to encourage and supplement the natural defenses in your body. The use of essential oils for therapeutic, hygienic, and spiritual purposes can be traced back over six thousand years, to several ancient civilizations including the Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Indians, and Chinese. Essential oils have long been used in cosmetics, perfumes, and drugs.
Aromatherapy offers a diverse array of health benefits depending on the essential oil used. Aromatherapy can aid in circulation, help prevent respiratory infections, curb insomnia, and relax the mind and body.
